Hotels Near Airport In Madrid

We are flying home from Madrid on October 2. We need a place to stay somewhat near the airport for the night of October 1st. We are also considering returning to Madrid a day early so we could spend one additional day in Madrid.

We are hoping to take a night train from Lisbon to Madrid.

We will very much appreciate and thoughts and advice you might be willing to share.

We stayed at the Madrid Airport Hilton. The hotel is very close to the airport,and they have free shuttle service from the hotel to the airport. They also have a shutte service from the hotel into Madrid. In addition there is a metro station which is about a 20 minute walk from the hotel.

Because Madrid (unlike my birth city of New York) has a (long) one-seat subway ride to the airport, maybe you don't have to do this. But if your flight is really early, just make sure the hotel shuttle runs that early before you book! We stay at the Hotel Preciados because the airport line has a stop just down the street. But it's not the same as staying at the airport.

After many visits to Europe, I have started to seek later returns to the US. One way I've succeeded is with connecting flights (at negligible or negative cost) that I previously would not consider. Just an idea.
