We had no problems finding this hotel, unlike the review below. My sat-nav was updated we had no issues at all. However, the motorways around Madrid are tricky, so I'd recommened using a Sat-nat as a matter of urgency. The hotel was lovely and clean, staff were very friendly and helpful, and spoke broken English too which helped, although I still like to put the effort into speaking the local lingo.
Motorway noise wasn't an issue at all, and in fact, just a 5 minute walk over the motorway was a brilliant shopping centre and entertainment complex, called TresAquas, with lots of restaurants, bars,a cinema and bowling alley. This was in ideal place to spend the evening.
Also a short 10 min walk west of the hotel is the very nice Alcorcon park. And Metro and train station was just a 10 minute walk away.
My bad points of the hotel:
Its right next to a nice looking restaurant, which regularly has weddings taking place, and on the saturday night, getting a parking space was hard, in fact there weren't any spaces and people had started to park where ever, even if it ment blocking someone in.
Also, they seem to have a lot of school groups stay in the hotel during the week (though the staff do make the effort to place you in a room as far away as possible and we never had an issue with noise), so breakfast can be a bit chaotic. Get down there early would be my tip.
Tv's are mega OLD, and not very good to be honest. Luckily they were showing the football downstairs in the lobby area.
We would (and most probably will) definitely use this hotel again when visiting Madrid. This was the first time we had ever randomly booked a budget hotel in the middle of knowhere, and it came up trumps.
