Holiday Inn Express Madrid - Getafe3.0 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
About 15 km from centre of Madrid, close to motorway plus a massive shopping centre next to it, so no problems with parking, if you don't have to stay in the centre of Madrid this is a good budget hotel, small rooms but comfortable and clean
We stayed at the Holiday Inn Express for two nights. Check in was easy although the woman at the front desk was not very friendly but did speak English. Plenty of free parking on site. The room was ok and clean but the sofa looked VERY worn. There was a frosted glass wall between the bedroom and the bathroom which could be awkward if you are traveling with others. The bathroom had a very deep tub and a bidet. We could easily hear our neighbors but they weren't very loud. Breakfast selection was small and lousy, we walked over to the shopping center and got "Dunkin' Coffee" instead. Amazing location and felt very safe. Right next to a giant shopping center with restaurants, outlet shopping, and a Carrefour (like Walmart) with groceries. We went to two amusement parks, Parque De Attraciones and Parque Warner (like Six Flags) and this hotel was basically the center point between the two.
Although this is a basic budget hotel, it has two main advantages. The first is that it is part of a huge new retail and entertainment complex in the south of Madrid which offers good opportunities to spend the evenings. Secondly, the breakfast range is more than what you find in other HIE hotels in Europe. It also has a large free car park and decent free wifi.
We stayed at the HI Express for 2 nights during a recent visit to Madrid at the end of our trip. After having stayed at a different HI Express near Gibraltar earlier in the trip it was a pleasant surprise to see that this property was identical in the room layout as the previous one. Rooms are a good size and well appointed with the usual attributes of an HI Express; however like the previous one we found the wardrobe to be quite small and the TV was also rather minuscule. The bed was firm and comfortable and the room was quiet despite it facing the front of the building with a view to the motorway below. Parking is free and on site with a mechanized gate permitting access; however there is absolutely no other physical means preventing anyone from entering the on site parking lot on foot as the entire area is open with small concrete blocks in place preventing vehicle traffic from entering unauthourized. The property is adjacent to a large shopping centre, hence the segregation of parking and there is also quick and easy access to the motor way for trips into Madrid (10-15 mins away) or to the airport (20-25 mins away). Breakfast is included in the room rate and like most HI Express this is set up much like a cafeteria with a self serve arrangement of cold meats, cheeses, cereals, pastries, etc; however despite that it was all well presented and of decent quality. As has been mentioned, the property is apparently within close proximity to the Warner Park which could mean a higher volume of children dependent on the time of year, but overall the property was satisfactory and met our needs during our stay.
Good clean and bright hotel with easy parking.Beds comfortable This was a repeat stay . Breakfast was very busy but the staff coped well and the selection was nice. This is yet another hotel where the A/C is only turned on during high summer. A a result we had the windows open to keep cool ,attracting loads on insects. If the hotel has air conditioning it should give the guests the option of using it
The hotel is located on a business park on the outskirts of Madrid. Across the car park there are numerous discount retail outlets [Famous brands, El Cortes Ingles etc.] and a good variety of restaurants. The hotel is well managed and the staff are friendly and accommodating. When we visited it was full of families [holiday week-end] visiting the Warner Park. I'm not sure but maybe there was a deal with the hotel and park. However we were not ware of this until we came down for breakfast in the morning and encountered all the families arriving for breakfast. There had been no indication the previous evening and we had a tranquil night's sleep. Breakfast was a decent continental standard and included in the price. Overall great value for money, comfortable, convenient, and well run.
Very good service, clean and modern look room. Very quiet zone, although it is in a commercial area, shopping outlets, cinemas and restaurants with a lot to choose. A bit far for the center, but it is a good choice to stay when visiting Warner Park or to stay in driving through Spain.
Hotel is situated about +- 20 minute drive from Barajas Airport & 20 minutes to the city center & attractions. If you hiring a vehicle make sure you take one with navigation, because it is quite a mission if you end up taking the wrong exit. You have to keep your wits about it all the time. However, the big plus about this hotel is that it is situated right on the doorstep of 2 convenient malls that are back to back, The Style Outlets (awesome shopping!) & Nasicca.The hotel rooms are quaint, clean and comfortable and the staff is very willing to be of assistance. The breakfast selection is very good, more than sufficient for me & my family. I would definitely recommend this hotel for good, value for money when traveling with your family!
Was a bit disappointed that this hotel was located outside the city, but came out to be best idea ever. Really nice hotel with extremely helpful reception staff. Clean, quite and amazing value for money in comparison with the city hotels. 25min away from the city centre, and around 30min away from the airport. But located basically opposite some shopping outlets, restaurants and a cinema... which after all day of business we enjoyed enormously. Would not be my choice for site seeing base though..
Definitely value for money & perfect for family stays. It is clean, convenient & peace of mind. The staff are quite friendly. However, you do need your own transport (with GPS or google maps) to stay at this location
