GOOD FOR AN AIRPORT STOPOVER

It has already missed a couple of renovations. The exterior walls need a paint job badly. Interiors are OK.

Mixed experience

Shuttle van service was excellent; room itself attractively furnished, comfortable king size bed, bathroom well-appointed. BUT: Front desk staff not extraordinarily friendly (neither at check in nor out); no water in the swimming pool and no comment about nor apology for this; wedding reception permitted to continue in outdoor courtyard until after 2 AM... at checkout I heard an airline captain clearly state that he expects his crews in future should not be lodged on courtyard side. Overall: fell short of potential; perhaps stay at plainer IBIS across the street for less money and lower probability of wedding receptions ? (and pool won't be empty because they don't have one)

It's OK

The room was clean and large. There was only one common computer to print out airlines tickets- we had to wait 15 minutes for our turn to use it. The restaurant was WAY over priced and the food choice minimal.

Okay for airport hotel

The shuttle service ran every 15 minutes & was very convenient for an overnight between flights. Unfortunately the pool was already closed for the season & the A/C in the room wasn't working.

1/2 the rooms are nice, 1/2 aren't.

This hotel is in barajas, only 5 minutes to airport so that's good. This is my 9'th time staying in this hotel, each time the night before flying home to the US of A. I discovered on this trip that there are 2 types of rooms, ones that are recently remodeled and large, and ones that are much older and much smaller. Both cost the same so if you stay here, make sure to ask whether you're getting a room in the newer part. Believe me, it's a HUGE difference. The staff was very unfriendly this time, totally uninterested in helping or answering questions. In most all "better" hotels like this one a standard first question at check in after you give your name is "Hello Mr. Smith, is this your first time here?" followed by 'Welcome' or 'Welcome Back'. The check in lady said neither and just took my name, typed on the computer, and handed me the key card. Geesh, you would think that since this is my NINTH time staying here there might be some kind of friendlier greeting, not to mention she dumped us into the older dirtier part of the hotel (room 260), on a night (Fri. Aug. 5,2011), when they were probably less than half full. So, if you don't mind rude unfriendly staff, and the risk of getting an old semi dirty room, this is a nice hotel.

Barajas Best

Melia Barajas is an excellent hotel. The hotel is close to the airport, and a few blocks to the Metro for an easy trip down town. The staff are very nice and if you need, they can speak english as well. I would recommend Melia Barajas again and again. Oh and the Tapas at the bar were great! One thing, ask for more pillows. Lou

Convenience and Economical

After a long drive from La Rioja and the expectation of a long return flight the next day, it was very nice to have a very quiet and clean room very close to Barajas Airport.

Good Value

This hotel seemed to have once been a five star class of hotel but the facilities are aging. But the staff was pleasant and helpful form the security guard trying very hard to answer your questions on "where is a local market?" in broken English. Everyone I interacted with had a positive attitude. The shuttle buses need to be labeled better as several hotels use similar buses and I allowed two buses to go by before I realized they were the bus I needed. You do not have to call the hotel for the shuttle. It runs continuously. As for the market, it is a two minute walk from the hotel. Limited items, more like a small convenience store.

Melia Barajas

The hotel is close to the airport and it's appearance is deceiving from the outside. It looks a little rundown but the inside lobby is more modern and the appearance is superb. I was expecting the staff to speak a little more english since they are a 4 star hotel, but that was not the case. The TV in our room had a broken cable going to the wall, so we had to find a way to fix it ourselves since we were too tired to call up the staff. There aren't very many places to eat close by so it feels like the only option is the hotels room service if you aren't ready to eat during Spanish meal times. Overall the stay was nice save for a couple of small complaints.
