Taking Metro to Madrid Airport early morning

by pavell

I have a flight out of Madrid on in early June (weekday) and it leaves at 6:50am

I will be staying in the middle of the city and I need to get to the airport early in the morning. unfortunately the metro closes at 2am and reopens at 6am.

this is a major problem for me as I need to take the metro to the airport; probably around 5am or so.

any suggestions guys?

yea unfortunately i was trying to avoid that; the only issue is that it is on a day of the national madrid holiday June 3rd.

so i heard that everything shuts down that day. i might have a problem getting a taxi??

Lat metro and hang about at the airport? You are probably trying to avoid that but it seems you have a bit of a Hobson's choice.....

No, you won´t have problems hiring taxis in Spain.
I have heard they have lots of them. Maybe if it is at night and it is one of the holidays, they will charge extra and extra...but there will be enough. You can even phone them some hours in advance and ask for a pickup at any time any place.

Perhaps your hotel can help you figure something out if you ask them about it now or upon check-in.

Convenience = taxi
Budget = late metro and overnight in the airport.

Such are the contingencies of travel at times...

We used a shuttle in a similar situation, but there were 5 of us. It worked out just fine. We were at the airport in plenty of time.

Because of this problem with the metro it is common to see probably a hundred people sleeping on every available floor space at barajas. We spent a very uncomfortable night there last summer, try taking a cushion or sleeping bag.

Last time I had to make an early morning flight, I took a Night Bus... N5 goes to Barajas... It takes no more than 40-50 minutes from Plaza Cibeles, however, keep in mind it drops you a little away from Barajas and it took us around half an hour to find our way to the Airport, but there are many people taking that Bus to the airport so even if you are new to Madrid or can't speak Spanish don't worry just follow the people with the bags...

I left at around 3 for my flight at 6:30, it took around 2 hours from point to point... Keep time at hand so that if at any point you find yourself getting late, you can take a cab... You can visit the Madrid Autobus website to find the Routes of Nightbuses, Plaza Cibeles is the Hub of night buses, so any line you will take will take you there...

About the national holiday thing, I have never seen buses or metro shut down on any holidays so far, however worst case the option of taxi remains open...

Travel Tips for Madrid

The Plaza Mayor

by jamiesno

The Plaza Mayor is right next to the Peurta del Sol and a great place for everything. There will be lots of people leasurly walking around they are plenty of shopping opportunities, tapas bars and nightlife. Another great meeting point and general area to spend a day!

Since its creation, the Plaza Mayor has apparently seen festivities, bull fights, royal coronations and executions. These would be attended by as many as 50,000 people. The Plaza Mayor, a grand arcaded square in the center of Madrid is very popular spot. The symmetrical rectangular square features a uniform architecture, very similar to the contemporary Place des Vosges in Paris.

During the middle ages the site was just a market place outside the city walls. In the 1560s, King Philip II asked Juan de Herrera, architect of the Escorial, to turn the market place into a real square. It would take until 1617, during the reign of King Philips III, before the construction of the new Plaza Mayor started. Under the direction of Herrera's successor, Juan Gómez de la Mora, the plaza was completed in just two years.

The result was a large square, measuring 120m long and 90m wide (394ft x 295ft). It was surrounded by wooden buildings, at one point up to six stories high. Fires destroyed all the buildings around the Plaza Mayor three times in history: in 1631, 1672 and 1790. Each time they were rebuilt, the last reconstruction after a design by Juan de Villanueva is what we see today.

The Plaza Mayor is just a short walk from the Peurta Del Sol area as well.

In february the ARCO is held. its an art fair. its held in parque ferial juan carlos 1. A weekly market is the interesting Mercadillo de Sellos y monedas, where you can buy stamps, coins and postcards.

Surprising Weather

by CookingMonster

Rug up during May! Make sure you check the weather forecasts before visiting Madrid in May. We went in 2004 and I thought the end of Spring would bring sunny, warmish weather to the city of Madrid, but how wrong I was!

Try 11 degrees maximum and 0 to 3 minimum (celsius)! Luckily we were prepared, and had some great layering clothes and a jacket each. It didn't rain too much, but was definitely chilly at night.

Casa de Campo

by ger4444

This place was used by the arabs to have their camps as they were attacking Madrid. later on it became the Royal's hunting field. Nowadyas the campo is a hughe place with trees and fields and reservoirs. it has an attracktionspark with more than 50 attracktions, a zoo-aquarrium and a cable car.

Nightlife areas in Madrid

by nulain

There are many different areas in Madrid where to go out, depending on what you are looking for. Just to list a few:
1 Huertas, near the hearth of the city (Metro Sol).
2 Malasania, more alternative and radical (Metro Tribuna)
3 Torre Europa and Avenida Brasil (Metro Santiago Bernabeu)
4 Chueca, gay & lesbian quarter (Metro Chueca)
5 Islas Filipinas or Moncloa, students nightlife
6 Orense, (Metro Nuevos Ministerios)
7 ... sure many others, but these are those I use to go. Of course, depending on the area, but consider that for many places, shoes are required.
