In total the Sterling Hotel Madrid has 68 modern and comfortable rooms all with en-suite bathroom, satellite TV, phone, safe, CH and AC.

The Sterling Hotel Madrid has many facilities within 100 metres on the same street, including: post box, herbal shop, tobacconists, banks, café and tapas bar. If you are feeling a little oriental then there's also a Chinese restaurant about 50 metres away in the direction of Gran Via. Or for convenience, there's a take-away pizza place right downstairs.
This area of Madrid is quite businesslike and there are several large companies with their offices between Gran Via and the Plaza España. By contrast, Gran Via itself attracts a lot of tourists due to the hundreds of shops there. There are also several theatres, tapas bars and cafes along Gran Via.
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.
