From the airport (T1) get the metro (about 8min walk from arrivals), number 8 pink line (5euro per person) to stop NUEVOS ministerios. Then get the number 10 blue line to Plaza de Espana.
Walk out of metro to gran via road.
Just at the top of the stairs we got a really good rate for euros from a bureau (it has a light blue sign)
The hotel was along the street as you pass Starbucks, on the opposite side.
Checked in with lovely helpful staff, multilingual
Our room was lovely, we had nice view , close to the lift and water and coke was free in minibar, our beds were comfortable with the ability to "sit up" with a remote control.
Breakfast was very nice, opened at 7am, with eggs-bacon-sasauge cooked to order.
The spa looked was busy, but I didn't get time to have a look around.
The location had very nice restaurant along the same street, if your after traditional tapas and beer or TGI's then it's all here, the theater next to the hotel was popular with shows,
We ate in a seafood restaurant about 300 yards left to the hotel as you walk out,
It was called sirena verde, we had paella for 2, half bottle of rosé for 38 euro,
They had good selection of seafood here,
Gran via has a good mix of shopping and restaurants, it was my first time in madrid, and 1night was sufficient for me, we did not do any tours, but iv heard evening tapa tours are good?
We stayed in room 608
