“All you could want”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 18, 2013

It's hard to fault this airport hotel. It's not quite the nearest to the airport but the free airport shuttle works service worked well and takes only 15 minutes or so to the terminals. The room I had was spotlessly clean and comfortable. Wifi worked without any problems. The dinner I had in the hotel's restaurant serves was very godd indeed and the breakfast included everything I could want. The multi-lingual staff are friendly and helpful. My only suggestion would be to have a tea/coffee maker in the room.

I wanted a quiet restful night with a good dinner and breakfast the following day before a long flight. The hotel provided all of those and at a very reasonable price. It exceeded my expectations.

Had a night to kill in Madrid between flights and decided not to go into town. There is no hotel connected to the airport in Madrid but there are a bunch of hotels (including this one) in Barajas which is a stop away on the metro or a 10-15 minutes away by shuttle bus.

I chose Axor Barajas based on the TA reviews and I was not disappointed. I had stayed at the Novotel London Heathrow the night before and paid the same amount in £ as I paid here in € and the experience at Axor was significantly better from the quality/size of the rooms (seemed brand new) to the fact that there was a free shuttle to/from the airport etc.

I didn't eat at the hotel and instead went to the mall that is a 15 minute walk away (right out of the hotel till you get to the roundabout then right again all the way till the end of the road, you can't miss it) with a bunch of options and had a very good meal there for much less than at the hotel. I didn't have breakfast the next morning either so I can't comment at all on the food.

The only criticism I have of the hotel was that the check-in was slow (luckily I was 2nd in a long queue) since there was only one person on duty and the front desk staff were not particularly helpful or interested in their job it seemed.

Overall, a good and relatively inexpensive option if you are looking for somewhere to stay close to Madrid airport.

We stayed for a flight transit, one night. Amazing hotel, very high quality, We recommanded this location. If we transit again via Madrid, It will be there certainly. It's very close to a shooping mall.
We took the shuttle from the airport. We had a good service. The room are spacious, with a very nice and usefull bathroom.

The property belongs to a Castilian family and is professionally run. Family romms are wide and some of them even look like duplex units. Free and fast working wifi all aroun the hotel. desktop with rpinter at the main entrance and thus allowing you to print your boarding passes before arriving to the airport: I found it a nice touch.Shuttle service to the airport running every half an hour, but early morning the bus is overcrowded so it is wise to reserve your places at the reception the night before. If you walk left from the hotel and you turn left at the fiest traffic lights you will reach Plenilunio, a huge mall with lots of restaurants and shops. It takes around 20 minutes on foot to reach this mall. Otherwise only critic I can say about the hotel is that some of the food chosen at the lobby bar was poorly defrozen and kept some ice inside. Otherwise I can recommend the property if you travel with your family.

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.

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.
