We were flying from Alicante Airport to Madrid and needed an overnight hotel, close to the airport for a international flight the next morning. What appealed to me was the free shuttle service to and from the hotel. Upon arrival at the Madrid airport, I called the hotel after collecting our bags, and they instructed us where to go stand outside. It took about 15 minutes for the shuttle van to arrive and then about 5 minutes to reach the hotel. We had prebooked and prepaid via the internet, our hotel room, prior to leaving the USA. Check in was fast and we took the elevator to our room and left the bags and inquired at the hotel lobby how to find & ride the metro. He gave us a Metro map & circled the 2 stops we would need to change at, to get to our final destination. It was about 2 blocks down the street to the Barajas Metro Stop. We showed the map to the man at the ticket booth and he sold us our round trip tickets to the city center. It was about a 35 minute metro ride to the station we got off at in the city center (near the Prado).
The room was small, but very clean and the bathroom very modern with a powerful, hot shower. There was a nice big closet that held 2 suitcases. We were on the street side and had sliding doors that led onto a tiny, glass enclosed balcony with 2 chairs. There were blinds on the windows, which you could raise & open the windows.
The next morning, we were in the breakfast room when it opened at 7am. I was expecting just coffee & juice and maybe a roll, but it was a surprise to see all that was offered. You would not leave there hungry.
We were told that we needed to be in the lobby 15-20 minutes before the shuttle left and had no problems returning to the Madrid airport the following morning.
