We stayed in the Hotel Dome Madrid for a long weekend / work trip.
Hotel: The hotel is new and decorated in a very modern / clean style. Oddly there are two sports cars (a Lamborghini and a Cobra) in the hotel lobby which are interesting to look at but otherwise the hotel is extremely sterile / institutional. There are no decorations in the hallways - just white walls and doors. The staff were very friendly and all able to speak English if needed. Price could not be beat.
Rooms: The rooms are large (for Europe) and very clean. The bathroom is open plan with the room. The wc has a frosted glass "door" which offers some privacy. The shower door is clear glass and has a frosted glass separating it from the bedroom. The bed was firm but not uncomfortable. The room has a mini bar with a price list but there were no room / hotel / area information booklets provided. The TV only has Spanish channels which is fine as it is Spain but for a business hotel, CNN would have been nice.
Location: The hotel is conveniently located in a business area on the outskirts of Mardrid (near BT, Alcatel / Lucent, etc.). It is about a 10 / 15 min and a 30 Euro taxi ride from the airport (note -- we took the free hotel shuttle back to the airport -- it just needs to be scheduled the night before). The hotel itself is hidden amongst the office buildings and the entrance is a little difficult to find . As it is in a business zone, the area is practically empty on the weekends. The metro (Las Tablas) is a ten minute walk and it is about a 30 minute ride onwards to the Madrid City Center on a very clean and easy to use subway system.
Food: There are some restaurants around the metro station but nothing that was open during non work hours on the weekends near the hotel. The hotel has a bar that serves food in the evenings (not open on Sundays) and do not try to order pizza or take away because the delivery personnel cannot find the hotel.
All in all, we would stay in this hotel again but just for work purposes. If we were going to come for another long weekend, we would stay closer to the city center in a hotel with more amenities.
