The only reason I stayed here was because I needed a single night layover as I made my way over to the Canary Islands. I thought it would be great to grab a hotel near the airport because I had an early morning flight.
When I arrived at the hotel I felt like I had been taken to a desert and left to die. The hotel was the only Oasis in sight. Check in was easy but then again I think I was the only one staying here. The room was also clean and nice too. I took about an hour to regroup in the room and figure out a game plan. I pulled out a map and plotted my next move.
I risked life and limb to go through a construction site and cross over the expressway to get on a bus. I took the bus for a few stops and reached a small town that had a subway station into downtown Madrid. It was a complete adventure but nothing I would like to do everyday. When I returned back in the evening, I decided not to risk my life with the bus again and took a short taxi trip from the subway back to the hotel. The taxi driver charged me like 10 Euro but at this point safety was high on my list. Riding on a strange bus on an expressway in the dark and trying to figure out my hotel stop was not a smart option.
There was breakfast in the morning but it was not available to me because I had an early morning flight. Then I got to the airport only to find that there was no food there. I finally found a cafe at the airport that opened at 6am. So if you have an early morning flight then have a game plan for breakfast. There is nothing open early at the hotel nor did they have any food available and you might have to go hungry for a while.
The location of the hotel was a little scary. I was in a bit of shock when I arrived. The photos of the hotel only show the hotel and not the abandoned area it is located in. If you have a short layover then the price is worth it but do not stay here for more then one day unless you wanna feel like Tom Hanks from Castaway. Wilson come back!!!
