It's not next to the airport but the shuttle bus gets you to and from the airport unless you have an early flight, I had to get a taxi €20.
There is a shopping centre next to the hotel that is useful.

Dear Sir,

Thank you for reviewing your stay at Hotel Elba Vecindario Aeropuerto. It is a pleasure to learn that it was a handy hotel for you.
Unfortunately we do not have 24 h bus transfers, and if the flight it is too early in the morning we can not do that service.
Please, in your next visit, do not hesitate to contact me for any matter about this service. Best regards.

I was most impressed by the efficiency of the helpful English speaking staff of the hotel. The reception helped us to book 2 seats on their complimentary shuttle bus at 545 am (first bus) to the airport 10 min away and arranged for a takeaway breakfast in the morning comprising of mango juice, water, banana and ham and cheese sandwich. Our room face the windmills and the road but it was not noisy. We had a comfortable night's sleep in the spacious room. Bathroom was spacious, well designed with nice hotel shower and fluffy towels. Hotel provided soap and shampoo. We had the most delicious dinner at the Meson la Pintadera and did some shopping at the Atlantico shopping mall across the road. Very pleasant end to our vacation at Gran Canaria. Although there is not much to do at Vecindario (only bars are opened in the evening but limited choice of food for dinner), we had a good rest before we bade farewell to the cheerful staff early in the morning before we left for the airport.

This hotel now belongs to ELBA hotel chain and is located along the motorway at 8 kms from the airport, 12 kms from Playa del Ingles and 16 kms from Maspalomas. This a brand new building with free underground car park & additional outdoor spots just along the reception hall.
There is also a huge shopping centre area with Carrefour hypermarket next to the hotel.
A free bus shuttle service to the Airport is provided. We enjoy the clean & very comfortable bedding. There is an unheated swimming pool on the hotel roof but with an unsufficient number of deckchairs. Hotel corridors are badly lit. We had a promotional rate of 57 € for double room with included very good continental & english breakfast for our very early 10 month hotel reservation.

We arrived here and checked in without fuss, when I asked if we had a sea view I was told, yes, if you look round the corner. In the room, usual 4* type accommodation, but the terrace door wouldn't lock. A service engineer was sent immediately to fix it. Not really happy about the lack of interest in security, the lock was very flimsy. Generally clean, well looked after daily, super breakfast salon. nicely located for commercial centre, not far from bus routes. 12 kms from airport.

It becomes increasingly difficult to find straightforward accommodation in holiday areas with so many places on offer being self-catering or worse, all-ins. And the inflated prices for booking over Christmas/New Year narrowed the choice of what was on offer even further. That is how I came to be staying at an airport hotel adjacent to a motorway. Actually with plans to explore the mountainous centre of the island, Gran Hotel Vecindario Aeropuerto turned out to be an excellent choice as the underground car park made it simplicity itself to load up with our picnic stuff, road maps, CD’s etc. with no worries about where to park and how much it would cost. Very conveniently there is a petrol garage right next to the hotel.

Our rooms were lovely with a very good size bathroom and a large balcony to sit out on; only the lack of a full-length mirror made it less than perfect. Good flat screen TV but sadly only the news stations were in English and I spent most of the time listening to its radio section (I recommend Radio Classico, rather like the BBC’s radio 3). As I live on an A road, traffic noise is something I can live with, but with the door to the balcony closed there was little to hear anyway so proximity to the motorway wasn’t a problem and although designated an airport hotel, it is seldom over-flown so aircraft noise is negligibly. Actually our room at the front of the hotel boasted a view of sea and palm trees, though the otherwise attractive vista was rather marred by an ugly wind farm nearby. I imagine the rooms at the back were even quieter, though without any sort of view.

Additionally there is a small computer room on the ground floor where you can use your own PC or use one of two supplied by the hotel for a small fee. We both visited the unisex hair dresser on the mezzanine floor and were pleased with the results. All the staff we encountered were efficient and helpful and our room was scrupulously clean as were all public areas of the hotel.

Breakfast was sufficiently varied with both cooked and cold options, but the lone waitress struggled to keep up with the numbers and often it was necessary to hunt for cutlery before sitting down, I noticed also that on the two or three mornings I breakfasted alone, no one bothered to bring me over any coffee, strange how lone females can appear invisible.

Vecindario itself wasn’t a particularly interesting town, but the Atlantico shopping mall just across the road was always buzzing and there are a couple of cheap eateries inside plus a huge supermarket that is handy if you find you’ve forgotten to pack something.

If you have a car this location is ideal as it is just 20-25 minutes to Las Palmas and a mere 15minutes to Maspalomas and the journey to the airport for our pre-dawn flight home took only 10 minutes on a near empty road. This is a great hotel for those planning to tour the island and I would definitely stay here again.

We have stayed in this hotel once before, and were as happy with it now as then. It is ideal to stay here for a night or two, if you like to shop in the big center called "Atlantico", witch is located right beside the hotel, or in the local town named Vecindario.

The rooms are very nice and clean with balcony. The hotel also has a nice poolarea with sunbeds on the roof. The breakfast is very good, and the service is excellent. We asked if we could have the room an hour longer than the ordinary time; twelwe O'clock, because our flight home was in the afternoon. This was no problem!

If you stay in this hotel, you are near the airport and can easily travel there by bus or taxi.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on high floor if you like to get some view!
