No complaints, issues or concerns with this hotel. Clean, very modern looking......HUUUGE room! Service efficient and reliable. Close to a shopping centre where we went for a quick bite in the evening rather than heading off somewhere by taxi; the hotel is perfectly situated for quick arrival to barajas airport so its not anywhere near the centre of madrid or anything else really! Typical site for an airport hotel. Free regular shuttle to and form the airport and a taxi for la atocha airport cost €20(ish). Very cost effective Hotel would recommend.

The Axor Barajas is a modern, functional hotel located on an Industrial Estate near Madrid, so for that reason alone I'd suggest it's ideal for work or a brief airport stop over rather than for leisure purposes. If it's a nice leisurely break you're after, you can skip this review and concentrate your efforts on sourcing a different hotel.

For those business travellers, (or nosey people who wanted to read on anyway), the Barajas is located next door to it's sister hotel, the Axor Feria, & having stayed at both hotels for work purposes, I can confirm that the Barajas is the better option. You can grab a Taxi from the airport for about Euro 20, or get the free airport to hotel shuttle bus that stops outside.

The lobby is modern and spacious, and the hotel concentrates it minimalist decor around white, black and orange. You are given the wifi code upon arrival and it is free throughout the hotel. In the lobby area, there are plenty of power sockets for us iPhone users who drain our batteries within 20 minutes of landing on any trip, so you can set up at a table with your laptop and phone plugged in and press the service bell when you want any drinks brought over by the bar staff.

The hotel rooms are airy and light with plenty of space, and the bathroom has a fantastic power shower. Beds are comfortable and large. You'll get a good night's sleep here.

The breakfast selection leaves a bit to be desired if you like to eat healthily. If you're a fan of cake, pastries or toast for breakfast then fill your face. Be prepared to be driven mad by the whistling toaster too as you eat. I've only dined here in the evening once, but I do recommend the seared tuna.

If you're British, bring a travel kettle. The Spanish do not appear to understand the trauma they inflict on British tea drinkers by not putting a kettle in the room as standard. Best bring a mug too. Oh, and some teabags....and milk.

All in all, a perfectly fine hotel for business. More of a 3* really. Cannot possibly agree to 4* if you're not going to give me a kettle!

Having read the other reviews, let me put things in perspective for the TA readers:
The hotel is new so by definition things are clean, light etc.
It is not in the town of Barajas itself (which is the Madrid airport town) but further away so you have to rely on the shutttle bus or pay a taxi. It is also further away from Madrid.
Functionally you cannot fault the hotel but it lacks character, there is nothing endearing about it and the quality of the food in the restaurant is mediocre.
There is nothing to do in the area (offices and some residentia lbuildings plud a shopping mall) so not easy to understand who would stay here. Even for an airport lay-over or early flight the next daythere are better options closer to the airport (even though it is true that it is not very far from the airport - perhaps15 minutes by shuttle bus instead of 5 with the other hotels such as the Melia Barajas or the Hilton).
Beds are good as are the bathrooms (but again: in a newly built modern hotel that is normal) but 4 stars is a ystery to me: they do not even provide coffee and teaf facilities in the standard rooms.
Not a place I will come back to because thankfully we still have a good choice in Madrid. Nothing unpleasant but boring is the word that sums it up.

Every year I'm going to a travel show (Ifema) in Madrid, so this time I picked Axor Barajas. Hotel is beautiful and the rooms look good and are comfortable. Transfers are arranged from the airport and back.
Some things that were a bit disappointing:
Room was not ready on the moment of arrival at 13:00, had to wait 30 min.
Very few restaurants in the neighborhood unless you take a taxi
Not close to any underground (Metro)
The gym area is a joke, with 2 cycle machines, a cross-trainer and some dumbbells...especially looking at the capacity of the hotel.

Excellent Hotel!
Nice modern and clean rooms and bathroom.
Friendly staff! great food!
Ideal hotel to catch a flight in Madrid airport or to stay between 2 flights.
there is a free and good organised shuttle bus from the hotel.
Also for Business might be excellent.
For tourists who wants to visit Madrid... less interesting... the city is 45min. by buss and metro.
But anyway... if you don't mind this... even for tourists I can recommend this hotel.

Me and my partner stay just one night here because our flight was next morning..
-The shuttle: work perfectly, they have a small van and a big bus, unfortunately when we got there it was jus the small van, and we all couldn't fit there, so the driver call the big bus and it got there in just 5 minutes
-Front desk: really kind and helpful, always with a smile and friendly.
- Lobby and hotel: beautiful luxury and modern design.
-location: is perfect if you want to be close to the airport, like we did, anyway if you want to go out.. there is a big mall just 12 minutes walking, you can find anything there and good restaurant that close late.
-Internet: good wifi connection.
-the room... Best part for last
It was just beautiful... pillows and bed really comfortable, good tv a and channels in many languages, light everywhere you need, nothing with bad smell, actually, everything looks really new... And my favorite part.. The bathroom!!! Love it! So luxury and clean, really good shower!

The only bad thing is the bathroom door doesn't have a lock and the water and coke in the little fridge are extremely expensive.
Good luck!
