“A bit out of town but overall very good”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 February 2012

Very nice hotel at a more than reasonable price. Only con is that it takes 40 mins to get to Puerta del Sol if you take the underground and bus. Nevertheless, for the quality you get and price you pay is more than worth it.
Does not have a great breakfast but still offers good value.

Very nice hotel as long as you do not want to eat.Food in bar edible but very expensive for what you get.Resturant not open on Saturday and food available in the bar very limited and would not bother again sad to say a real let down for an otherwise very pleasant hotel.

Travelling to the Hotel:
A little out of town, but if you don't mind a walk to the tube and you have a tube map with you, then you will be fine! Just make a note of the END station so you know you are travelling in the right direction. Travelling from the airport / aeropuerto on the pink line travel to mar de cristal on the dark red/burgandy line travel to avenida de america, yellow line travel to pueblo nuevo, green line to ciudad lineal, get off at this station, it is the one we found easier and exit on the left stairs out of the metro,you will come up next to the local shopping centre (this will be on your right) just keep walking in a straight line after you exit the metro and cross the road when you can, you will pass local shops and Lidl and a local supermarket, a car garage etc etc and when you reach the petrol station on a junction you have found the road you need, turn left and keep walking down until you found the hotel.
The Hotel:
This hotel was lovely, very modern and clean. It only has a lift, we couldn't find any stair access, not that we looked too hard though. The staff spoke excellent english and where very helpful. Although a little warm in the room our stay was pleasent. The bed was MASSIVE!!! The bathroom was big and the shower was brilliant. Breakfast was a little strange to us, cold meats and cereal and even sweets where laid out but with spanish and english labels. The food was fresh and gorgeous! Times for eating where better than anywhere I we have stayed previous, there is no rush to get up early incase you miss it!
The Area:
It is the industrial section and there are a lot of buildings, factories and business blocks around, but at weekends it is deserted! There is a Lidl and another supermarket on the walk to and from the hotel so you can grab any other food or drink items you want.
We really enjoyed our stay and our trip to Mardid and even though our stay was with our Tesco vouchers and we didn't have much say in the hotel choice, we thought it was an excellent place to stay.

This hotel is located in a residential area about 10 min metro ride to downtown. The hotel is about a 10 minute walk to the metro station. Rooms are modern and clean a bit on the small side but that's standard to European rooms. Staff was friendly and helpfull.

We visit this Barcelo hotel during the weekend (Fri-Mon), using Tesco voucher so it was free for us. The front staff at the hotel was welcoming, spoke good English and provided us with loads of information when asked. The room itself was clean and comfortable with big, massaging shower head, was kind of plus point.

The area itself is practically dead during the weekend. It is a short, decent walk to the metro station though. Took about 15 minutes for us (and if feeling lazy, you can catch a bus to and from the Metro). We didn't have breakfast at the hotel as we think it was quite expensive (13 Euro!) but we ate at Jamaica cafe (on the way to the metro) which was cheap and cheerful. (It closed on Sunday though).

We had lunch and dinner in central Madrid everyday.

The best way to and from the airport is via bus, (I can't remember exactly which number to take, I think it is 105 then change to 101 or 200, you can ask the hotel front for exact info).
