Arriving at Barajas late in the evening and not speaking Spanish is a mistake, unlike all the other airport hotels the best western requires you call for a bus great if you have a working phone or there are call boxes that you don't need mother tongue Spanish to operate. Madrid taxi drivers are remarkably inflexible and have no concept of bribery, only when the final flight had landed and emptied could I convince a taxi to take me on a short trip.
My only other complaint was the coffee at Breakfast - appalling coffee is forgivable in the US, but in Spain where coffee is generally of a very high standard I was bitterly disappointed - water pressure in the shower was very much on the low side, the motion activated lighting system was very slow leaving me on a number of occasions in pitch dark corridors, and the room was very cold on entering.
Upside very cheap, once we got there very cheerful and friendly service, nice breakfast excluding the coffee.
