Madrid Airport Transport
Madrid Public Transport Card
If you are in Madrid on business you may find that a hotel near the airport is most suitable. There are many hotels in that area that are geared up for business travellers, and have conference suites and internet access.
The centre of Madrid is the perfect place to stay if you want to enjoy the attractions. I would say that the Gran Via road is probably the busiest and therefore noisiest place to stay, but it is central and has excellent access to shops, bars, nightlife and theatres. More peaceful is the Paseo del Prado and nearby streets. Here you'll be in a prime position to visit Madrid's famous museums: the Prado, Reina Sofia and Thyssen-Bornemisza.
There are lots of new and classy hotels springing up in the area of Las Huertas, just off from the Plaza Santa Ana. This area has an interesting history and some beautiful old buildings that are undergoing renovations as I speak. It is quiet during the day, and heaving with life at night. This is also an excellent central location.
'Downtown' Madrid is in the area of Atocha. Behind the station is an area with the cheapest accommodation you can find. It's not the prettiest part of Madrid, and not always the safest after dark, but it is excellent if you're on a budget and if you're not planning to spend too much time at your hotel.
