About Ayre Gran Hotel Colon, Madrid

Stylish Madrid hotel with a garden, live music, free WiFi

A stroll to Retiro Park

On the east side of central Madrid, the sleek Ayre Gran Hotel Colon is located a 10-minute walk from Retiro Park. Atocha Railway Station is a 7-minute drive to the south, and you can get around the rest of the city via Sainz de Baranda Metro Station, a block north.

Sports and fine art

Barclaycard Center, an 18-minute walk, is a vast arena that hosts major sporting events and tours from international musicians. For something more refined, you can take a 10-minute taxi ride to the Prado Museum, home to Spain's finest art collection, including Picasso's Guernica.

Cocktails and live music

Restaurant Ibiza offers a chic dining experience, after which you can move on to cocktails and live music at Café del Ayre. Multilingual staff will be glad to show you to the hotel's secure car park (surcharge), or to the fitness center if you feel like some exercise.

City views, free WiFi

Sleek and modern with bright decor, the 361 guestrooms and suites all feature free WiFi and look outwards over Madrid. You can unwind by watching the flat-screen TV with cable channels, and there's a pillow menu to help ensure a great night's sleep.

Very Good8.0
A good stay
Great location, close to Park and down town. Clean and comfortable
Larry, us2 night romance trip
Ayre Gran Hotel Colon, Madrid
Great place to stay if you're in Madrid
I have nothing but good things to say about my stay at Ayre. The room was super clean and had everything I needed. The subway station is two blocks away and once you're on the train you're less than 10 minutes away from downtown Madrid. 30 minute subway ride to the airport. The only weird thing was the hallway lights were dark until you actually took a step out from elevator but I guess that's an energy saving measure. U.S. hotels just waste electricity. In all honesty, I think this is a great option for business travelers due to its proximity to downtown without having to pay the ridiculous markup to stay downtown. Plus there are a couple of restaurants and a bar within a short walk if you find yourself hungry after hours. When I return to Madrid, I will return to Ayre Gran!

Ayre Gran Hotel Colon, Madrid
Wonderful hotel. Staff was very welcoming and helpful. Rooms were clean and had great WiFi. Hotel restaurant rates were reasonably priced and food was excellent. Great location just outside the crowded areas. 25 minutes to the airport, 10 minutes to Atocha station and easy access to City Metro.

Ayre Gran Hotel Colon, Madrid
Great hotel but needs better pillows and mattress.
Great hotel. The pillows were bad and very uncomfortable. The beds were not so comfy. Other than that, everything was great in the hotel. The hotel has two entrance and can be a bit confusing at first. Excellent taxi stand right in front of the hotel. Very convenient.
