Madrid Hotel and transportation Suggestions - 12/17/13 03:07 PM

Hello there,

I will be arriving at Madrid Barajas airport on January 9th around 9am and I have to spend one night there to fly next morning at 10am, so I have a day to rest and maybe discover a little about Madrid city.

I was told to go to downtown for a hotel.
Any suggestions on how I can get to downtown to an affordable hotel there.

Please give me your suggestions on how to get to hotel and how to get back to the airport. I need to be back at Barajas by 6-7 am in the morning.

Thank you

easy is to take metro line 8 at airport to Nuevos Ministerios and you are on the Castellana.
I usually do that and then they pick me up there. this is the line to the airport, and you can get off at colombia and link with line 9 or nuevos ministerios and take line 6 circular.
