Lin - hope I'm not too much of an interloper, and I salute your traveler's intrepid curiosity with the Camino sojourn, but may I ask about your knowledge of the Madrid airport lodgings that you have previously commented on? are the airport hotels quiet? and how far/how long a bus ride into central Madrid? I am planning a trip for mid-October. thx

i would never stay out at the airport for more than a one nighter if I was planning on visiting Madrid. I have not had any problem sleeping at the following hotels.

axor feria
pullman
Ibis
clemente Barajas
Boston

Of these.. Pullman most upscale Ibis most basic. All clean with free shuttles every half hour until dinnertime ( 9 or 10 pm- ish)

Signing up at Accor Hotels will get you some useful codes for bigger discounts than fund on their websites sometimes.

Bus ( 5E) from airport takes about 30 minutes. But local bus ( cheaper9 takes longer but may not go "central". The metro also has stops near some of these these hotels without taking shuttle back to airport..I know the Pullman and sister Novotel for sure.

Please note a sojourn is a temporary stay not a trek.

Tomas-- a quick recommendation: Best Western Barajas. the metro Barajas is within walking distance from where to get to/from the airport as well as easy connecting to anywhere in Madrid. They do have a free shuttle to/from the airport. Upon arrival and when ready to go, you just call them and they will pick you up at the terminal promptly. Again, if touring Madrid, stay at city centre, but if you need to stay close to the airport, this hotel is very quiet, convenient, clean. great value, very nice staff, and includes a wonderful breakfast.
