Stayed at Novotel Madrid Campo de las Naciones 16th April - 18th April 2014. Decided to take a break before heading home to Canada. The hotel is actually about 10 minutes drive from Barajas Airport. The location is in a business area which is fine if you are stopping over in Madrid to catch another flight. There is not much to see and do except Parque Carlos 1 nearby. There are a handful of restaurants in the area if you want to eat out and a Corte Ingles if you need to buy anything. Luckily the Metro Station (Campos de las Naciones) is 4 minutes walk from the hotel. From this Metro station, it takes 20-24 minutes to City Centre SOL Metro station with 2 transfers. It is a pleasant ride and being the 2nd last stop on that line, it is never crowded.
The hotel itself is nice and very convenient as it offers free to and from shuttle service every half hour to any of the 4 airport terminals at Barajas. The rooms in the hotel are quite spacious and clean with a fair sized bathroom. The beds are comfortable and the hotel is clean. There is a nice terrace on the 2nd floor with a swimming pool. There is a restaurant in the hotel where had lunch and the food was good albeit expensive (10 euros for a club sandwich). Went to Pullman Hotel next door to have a drink at thier bar as it was too noisy at ours. Our hotel was full of kids because of the Semana Santa (Holy Week) break. Having seen the Pullman, I think I will stay there next time instead.
The shuttle also pick up passengers from the hotel next door (Pullman Hotel) and one other. Although the airport is only 10 minutes away, it takes about 24 minutes to get there because of the stops the bus makes. You call and then wait for the bus outside the arrival terminal. There is a shuttle bus waiting area where you can pick up the hotels' shuttle bus. Make sure you book your seat for the shuttle the night before you check put of the hotel as it does fill up fast.
