On the side street that runs up to the main entrance, you'll see a colourful looking clothes shop for women.
Calle Princesa itself runs as far as the Plaza España, and 50 metres before you arrive at the Plaza, you'll see a cinema that shows films in 'original version' - meaning that many are in English. To walk to the Plaza Espana from the hotel will take about 10 - 15 minutes.
By metro it's approximately 10 minutes ride into the heart of Madrid and many shops, bars and restaurants. To find the main commercial area head for Sol.
Booking your airport transport online in advance of your trip enables you to travel from Madrid-Barajas airport directly to the door of your hotel.
The online booked transfers listed below are not public transport operated services - which means they continue to run even if there is a public transport strike.
If you don't speak Spanish, and you are unfamiliar with Madrid, arranging your transport in advance will give you peace of mind and save you the trouble of working out the route yourself. You can either book a private transfer or a shared transfer.
Private transfer (online booking only)
A private transfer means that the vehicle that you have will be dedicated for you and your party only. The driver will be waiting for you at your arrivals gate with a sign with your name on it. Your driver will assist you with your luggage and take you to a private air conditioned vehicle to take you directly to your hotel. We have provided a booking link below.
Minibus transfer (online booking only)
A minibus option is cheaper than the private transfer and the vehicle is shared amongst other travellers. Unlike a private transfer the driver will not be waiting for you at the arrivals gate you would need to make your way to a meeting point.
Follow the link below to book either your private transfer or minibus transfer online.
