The Hotel Mora Madrid is a popular hotel. It was busy with American tourists when I arrived. It is in a good location if you want to see Madrid's famous art museums; the Prado, Thyssen-Bornemisza and the Reina-Sofia. The road outside is quite busy, but with so much to do within walking distance, you're bound to be out and about most of the time.

The Hotel Mora Madrid has its own café / restaurant downstairs that does a 3 course menu of the day for €18.00. There's a spacious lobby with an old-fashioned feel, that has sofas and armchairs where you can sit and relax.
A fax service is available.
There are 62 rooms (some singles available) and each room has cable TV, CH, telephone, safe and en-suite bathroom. I found the rooms to be surprisingly modern compared to the entrance of the hotel, which was more old-fashioned in style. They are decorated in bold Mediterranean colours.
The front rooms have a view across the road to the trees and plants of the botanical gardens that stretch out behind the Prado museum.
To stay in the Hotel Mora Madrid gives you quick access on foot to the famous art museums of Madrid. Also directly across the road there's a market that opens in the mornings selling books, jewellery and household knick-knacks.
Less than a minute to the right of the hotel is McDonalds and less than a minute to the left is Burger King, so if a fast food craving hits, you'll be fine. Also on the same street within a minutes walks you'll find a couple of tapas bars.
The Atocha railway station with rail links all over Spain is 4 minutes walk away, and if you stroll up Calle Atocha itself (turn right at McDonalds), you'll find plenty of bars and restaurants. When you get to the top of the road after about ten minutes, you'll be in the heart of Madrid and some of the city's most beautiful buildings. Not to mention the enormous number of shops.
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.
