“Perfect place for the connected traveller”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 30, 2012

The Axor Barajas is a very good airport hotel. It's incredibly good value and very well thought out for the traveller. The airport shuttle is every half hour, on time and efficient. The wifi is fast and free, and has a strong signal in the rooms and communal areas. It took less than five minutes for me to download a movie.
The bar is cheap and friendly and there's no problem about being a woman sitting alone in there. There are plenty of plug points for last minute charging of devices in the communal areas, as in the rooms.
In the bedrooms the monsoon showers are fantastic, the beds super comfortable and the room is very well thought out.
The food and wine I had were very good.
It takes about 45 minutes to get into the city if you catch the airport shuttle and the metro at the right times. There's a shopping centre nearby.
Late check outs are possible for a small fee, or just use the hotel gym for a shower before a night flight.
I can highly recommend this hotel.

As cabin crew, I regularly stay in this hotel. It is convenient for business travellers as its close to the airport with a complimentary shuttle service, has good transport links to the city with the rooms impressively large, hi-tech, clean and complimented by friendly hotel staff. And most importantly, the beds are sooooo comfortable and a good night's rest is guaranteed! I'd gladly recommend it to anyone.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 15, 2012

This is a very nice, clean hotel that provides many amenities. The beds are very comfortable, the bathroom is large with a nice shower (no tub), and they offer dental kits, which is a nice touch. The towels are well maintained and a good size. Alas, no washcloths, but that is typical of Europe.

There is a shuttle to and from the airport, although I had a problem finding the shuttle from the airport and took a taxi. It's very expensive for a short trip (25 EUR), so look for the Axor sign at the shuttle. It will take you to both of the hotels (which are sister properties right next to each other.)

The hotel is very modern, which is rather stark for my liking, but that is a preference. There are no carpets in the room, just wood floors and tile in the bathroom, which is very cold in the morning. The towel warmer was much appreciated and helped to warm the bathroom since it was chilly when I visited.

The restaurant was very good, but does open late compared to American standards. Luckily, there is a mall within short walking distance where you can find a meal at any hour, but do try the restaurant for dinner or the bar area since the food is very good.

The price for a hotel this quality is very good. I would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: Choose a room on the higher floor. The bar and reception area get noisy and crowded.

Aside from comfortable rooms, modern decor and proximity to Madrid, the hotel offers good price-quality ratio for family travelers. Kids can entertain themselves with complimentary Wii gaming which is provided on the floor lounge and is available at the reception to pick up. Family rooms are nicely equipped with flat screen TV and bunk beds. Good value and kids loved it!

Room Tip: If you have family, ask for room for 4!

I stayed here before catching an early morning flight and it offered almost all you could offer in an airport hotel. Check in took a while as the mini bus from the airport was full but the room was clean and quiet and the bed comfortable. Had to go to hotel next door (same group) for dinner and I would have liked a bit more choice, a tapa or two was on my mind but not on menu.
The mini bust service to the airport runs every half an hour and I was at the airport in minutes.
The staff were friendly and helpful.

This is a perfect hotel. Price value is excellent. Next to the airport, that might be the negative also if you want to bein the center. But the bed was good, nice shower, good breakfast with a lot of choice, free wifi, friendly staff, new/modern funiture (at least not worn out). What else do you need?

I always stay at this hotel when I am in Madrid. It's just 5 minutes from the airport, it has free transportation service to and from the hotel, the van runs every 30 minutes from 5 AM to 10 PM.
The rooms are large and new, it is a quite hotel and even though you are so close to the airport, there is no noise. Modern hotel with all amenities, free wi-fi throughout the hotel. It has a nice restarurant, a little pricy but if you want, you can walk to a mall which is about 5 blocks from the hotel and you will find plenty of restaurants. Great hotel for overnight travel.
To go downtown Madrid, you can take the free ride from the hotel to the airport and there buy a train ticket and get off at Antocha station.
Of course plenty of taxis at the hotel. A ride to the airport is around $10 to $12 Euros.
The hotel rate varies but you can get a good rate on trip advisor or any other site or just checking directly with the hotel. Last time I stayed there in may 2012, I paid $85 Euros for a king size room. Not bad at all.

Room Tip: No problem with any room, higher or lower floors are the same.
