Taxi from central Madrid to Barajas T1

We took a taxi two days ago from our hotel on Hermostilla to Barajas Terminal 1 in 11 minutes flat in late morning. Traffic was about normal. The cost was €21,50, including the airport supplement. That's about as cheap as it gets!

We took it two weeks ago from Wellington to T2 for only a euro more...
Didn't time it, but the traffic was really light for eight in the morning.

And sped past all of the rubbish on the streets no doubt.
It does not sound nice in Madrid at the moment.

It's called "limited services"! Trash in front hotels, residential buildings, along Cava Baja, in Plaza Santa Ana and along the busy shopping streets are being picked up and not a problem. But yes, the trash has piled up in some areas, leaving a real mess.

Maria I think you have got the wrong thread. There is nothing about the cost of living being asked here.
Just to let other readers of this forum know the rubbish collectors have gone back to work. Streets are now being cleaned.
For those who are interested in the taxi fares between the airport and the centre of Madrid you should read this link: http://www.aena-aeropuertos.es/csee/...997//Taxi.html
A flat rate will be introduced during 2014.

Yep - the streets look pretty decent now. From what I have seen, the trash has been picked up on major streets and they are working on the smaller ones.
