Madrid Airport hotels are relatively abundant in number, and if you can't find a hotel near the terminals that suits your needs, there are some attractive vacation rentals in the general area as well. These rentals come mostly in the form of apartments and offer many of the comforts of home. Hotels are arguably more desirable when short-term stays are the main priority. The city center is about eight miles away, so trips into town are relatively easy to manage if you have time to see the sights during your stay. For business travelers, it is worth noting that the Barajas Airport hotels not only offer proximity to the airport. They are also close to the city's famed IFEMA trade fair center.
When looking for upscale hotels near Madrid Airport, the Hilton Madrid Airport deserves a look. This attractive contemporary hotel offers spacious rooms and suites that boast perks such as marble bathrooms, complimentary wireless Internet access, cable TV, work desks with lamps, individual climate control, coffee makers to help you make your flight, two-line phones with voice mail, and convenient hair dryers. While the more standard rooms are attractive and comfortable enough, deluxe rooms and suites are available for travelers who want to enjoy a few added perks, such as extra space. In-room dining can be enjoyed at the Hilton Madrid Airport, and when you feel like eating outside of the room, the hotel features two restaurants and a bar. The restaurants offer a number of Spanish cuisine staples, such as tapas and churros. Churros are akin to doughnuts and go very well with a cup of thick and rich Spanish hot chocolate. Helping to round out the facilities at the Hilton Madrid Barajas are a pool, a fitness room, a business center, a tour desk, and a car rental desk.
