The Holiday Inn chainof hotels has many 3 star Express by Holiday Inn hotels in Madrid. All of them on the outskirts of Madrid, very well connected by highways, local trains or bus services till the center of the city. The prices normally range form between 50 and 75 Euros and include bed and breakfast. Very comfortable, good service and very functional. I normally stay at the hotel which they have in Rivas VaciaMadrid - 10 kilometers outside the city on National Highway 3, which connects Madrid with Valencia and with very good connections to the city network of road the M-45, M-40 and the M-30.
Unique Quality: Good Parking Facilities
I do not recommend this hotel! First of all it is very far from downtown and all the tourists’ attractions. After that, the staff was very rude, they did not like to speak English! We got a room with two beds and we asked to change, but it was only possible on the next day. But then my sister sent me a message that I never got, turns out they had sent the message to the first room I had been in. One of the nights I woke up and the bathroom door was locked, so then I called the reception and they were very rude. I asked how it would be possible for the door to lock itself, and they said that I probable did something wrong. It took them half an hour to send somebody to correct it... Really frustrating!
We are a family of 5 2 adults 3 Boys ages 8 6 and 3 who are travelling to Madrid in July and then going on to Alicante via hire car which we have already booked we arrive very late fri night and were thinking of checking in to a hotel close to the airport and then on sat driving to Real Madrid stadium before going on to our accomodation sat pm.
Anyone know how far from airport stadium is?
Any suggestion hotel close by hotel or stadium will need to have facilities for parking I have noticed the Hilton but open to ideas?
Also on looking said best to buy on door to football stadium?
I know in advance but thought would book for treat for boys
Thanks very much
Take a look at Holiday Inn Madrid which is about 10 minutes walk from the Santiago Bernabeu Stadium. Allow 5 hours for the drive to Alicante. Had you considered taking a train (4 hours) from Chamartin Station to Alicante and hiring a car at Alicante? Chamartin Station is also near Bernabeu. Other hotels in the neighbourhood of the stadium.
Airport to Holiday Inn by taxi is about 20 minutes or so late evening. There is a shared taxi service I have used called http://www.aerocity.com/english/index.asp
which may be better for your party. They have been going for long time.
Yesterday and today the Madrid airport taxi drivers were on strike.
Everybody seems to want to strike at this time of the year ! You wouldn't belive we are in the middle of a recession.
For directions etc, open Google Maps and insert the address of the Bernebeu in Search Box:
Avenida de Concha Espina 1 28036 Madrid, Spain
driving directions from airport show about 15 minutes.
For a different twist, have you considered staying in the center of Madrid and taking the metro to Santiago Bernabeu?
You could take a taxi to the hotel since you arrive late and do without the car until you're ready to go to Alicante. There are a couple of nice places to stay. Metro line 10 stops right in front of the stadium. You can take a tour of the stadium for 10 Euro ... although probably not on game days.
The Room Mate hotels are pretty good - Room Mate Laura and Room Mate Mario are pretty nice and clean places to stay, very convenient for everything.
I would have recommended one of the Expo Hotels, but I just checked their site and they don't have one in Madrid. But the El Corte Igles is a great department store - my suitcase was a few days late joining me in Spain and I bought quite a few "souvenirs" there.
Have a great time!
