“Good hotel, close the airport”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 July 2012

I stayed at this hotel for my last night in Europe.
What a wonderful way to end my trip.
The hotel is close to the airport and within a short walking distance to the metro.
The hotel staff were very friendly and helped me out a great deal with directions to several points of interest. The rooms were clean and the beds did a fine job. I even got a laugh from the a la carte pillow pamphlet. Our room faced an open parking lot which was fine because our main purpose of the hotel was to sleep. Free internet access is available in the lobby.
Overall I was pleasantly surprised with the price we paid to stay at the Velada Madrid Hotel.
We had stayed at a dive in Malaga and paid the same price!!
I would recommend the Velada Madrid hotel.

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 May 2012

Stayed here before the Madrid Marathon and had a really great experience because of the willingness of the hotel staff to give us information on the city, the cleanliness of the room, and the proximity to the metro. We chose the hotel because of the price and were very surprised for what we got out of it in comparison to what we've paid in similar amounts with many less amenities. Would recommend this hotel to someone who wants a good value, and who isn't afraid of using the metro or walking to get around town rather than being in the heart of town. Also liked the absolutely free airport shuttle, which we've found some hotels advertise an airport shuttle, but still charge a high fee for the service.

This is a good hotel not too far from the airport.
The hotel has a small gym. If you like running there is a running track 5 minutes from the hotel.
The hotel has a bar and is next to Vips restaurant if you want something quick to eat.
Price is good and the hotel is clean with good service.

3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 February 2012

Have stayed here numerous times on business. Service is pretty good and the rooms and hotel in general are spotlessly clean. It just lacks a bit of soul and any uniqueness and the rooms are pretty dreary for hanging out in. Very near to the airport but a little way from the city centre. I would not stay here for pleasure.

The rooms are relatively spacious and well-maintained. The hotel is in a bland industrial/business district, but close to 2 metro stops (same line). Breakfast is average, and the hotel "cafeteria" has a very limited menu. Not many good restaurants within walking distance.
