The first time I when to Madrid I arranged a taxi to pickup me and also to bring me back, here is the phone: 0034639667111 excellent service. My lasts time I use public transport. When you arrive at Madrid airport go to the second level you will found the free bus to the nearest train station the problem is your nearest station to the hat is puerta del Sol then is about 15 min. Walk.
