Madrid, Spain's beautiful capital city, is a city that deserves a long visit and is full of luxury and boutique hotels. However, every now and then, a flying stop is unavoidable - be it for business reasons or otherwise - and an airport hotel becomes the preferred option. We think airport hotels have gotten some ill-deserved bad press recently and we would like to recommend one or two in this blog that really do deliver.
Airport hotels really do not deserve the reputation they carry with them. A good airport hotel can hold its own with any city-centre offering and you do not have to sacrifice on luxury in order to grab a convenient location. Quite the opposite. Airport hotels know that you need somewhere calm, comfortable and beautiful and they do not let you down!
Our favourite airport hotel is the Hilton Madrid Airport Hotel. Not only is it only minutes from the Madrid Barajas International Airport and only a tiny bit longer to the city-centre, it also offers a complimentary shuttle bus service to and from both destinations!
This is a hotel equipped for both relaxation (with its own pool, bars and restaurants) and business (the hotel boasts 13 meeting rooms, a stylish boardroom and an elegant Ballroom with space for up to 450 delegates).
Or you could try the Holiday Inn Express Madrid Airport hotel. This hotel is just as conveniently located but is slightly cheaper than our first pick. However, this is still a great option and offers comfort and luxury at a very affordable price!
