We were looking for a hotel that would be close to the train station in Madrid, SPAIN, with easy access to downtown and also reasonably close to the airport. We eventually found a hotel on the Internet which seemed to come pretty close to our criteria.

Hotel Husa Chamartin (Agustin de Foxá s/n, 28036 Madrid, Spain; phone +34 91 1334 49 00 or visit www.hotelchamartin.com), located right on the premises of the Chamartin train station, where our train from Lisbon arrived, is over a metro station and only a 15-minute taxi ride from the airport. The metro takes you to the Gran Via/Plaza España in downtown Madrid in 20 minutes.

This 8-story, 4-star, modern hotel (of the Husa chain) had a plethora of services, shops, restaurants, etc. We had a very nice room on the eighth floor with a mini-bar, safe, cable TV and a wonderful view.

During our stay, April 29-30, ’05, the cost for the two of us was €61 ($71) per day plus 7% EVA tax — an unbelievable price for this kind of hotel in a big European capital! There’s no reason to stay elsewhere in Madrid unless you don’t care about money! We highly recommend it!
