Hi - what is the quickest route from Madrid airport to Opera Hotel? How long does it take?
Arriving 1.45pm from Doha, Qatar on 20th September 2016.
Taxi is quickest not sure how long it takes
The cheapest way is metro 50/60 mins journey
We took a taxi from the airport. It took about 25 minutes although next time we will take the Renfe
From Terminal 4, it is also possible to travel by train (Renfe Cercanias) to the centre of Madrid, daily from 06:00 to 00:15. The suburban train line C-1 departs every 30 minutes in the direction of the city. To get to Puerta del Sol, you need to transfer at Chamartín station to line C-3 or C-4. The average travel time to Puerta del Sol station is 30 minutes including transfer time. The terminus of line C-1 is Principe Pio, on the way you can get off at Atocha station after 27 minutes. The price of a ticket is € 2.60.
Use UBER...very convenient.
Many thanks for your replies. Think the taxi will be quickest.
We only have 2 days in Madrid and want to make the most of it !
If you are looking for speed, personally I'd get a taxi, however it's not cheap.
You can get the metro to "Ópera" station for around €5. It's about a 2 minute walk from there, however it took about an hour when I did it.
Hope this helps.
I took the direct bus to Plaza Cibeles (15 min.)and walked from there (half an hour). For the quickest way, you could a question to the hotel.
In my opinion you will not need the metro - we walked everywhere to make sure we saw everything so taxi there and back was very reasonable and quick with no messing around with changes etc.
Quickest way was a taxi - takes about 30 mins
Quickest and best thing to do is to get a taxi from Madrid Airport, which we did, to the Hotel Opera. It is 30 euros and this is a flat rate for taxis airport to city. It took about 10-15 minutes door to door.
Well, I arranged a taxi transfer with 'Holiday Taxis' (through our travel Agent) and it took less than an hour
I don't know the quickest time as it depends on traffic conditions. We took the Metro which took about 35/40 minutes. It is really easy to navigate around the Madrid Metro. Take it from the airport to Nuevo Ministerios and change to the circular line one stop to Cuatro Caminos and then on the number 2 to Opera. It is 2 minutes walk to the hotel. There are a few steps at some of the changes but there are lifts. You can buy a 10 trip ticket for Eur18 which includes airport supplement for 2 people. Just pass the ticket to each other at the entry gate. If you go back to the airport using the metro, you just pay the supplement at the machines before you exit.
Hope this helps.
I had a taxi booked which took about 25 minutes and I'm afraid I don't know with other forms of travel but I'm sure you will find this information on the airport website
We travelled by metro from the airport. You will need to change the metro trains about 3 times and it will involve a short flight of steps to climb at each station.
Depending on how often you will use the metro during your stay in Madrid, you can buy 10 metro tickets which are on the one ticket and you use the same ticket each time you use the metro.
For the metro to and from the airport there is also an additional supplement to pay.
The total travel time is about 45 mins.
Once you arrive at the opera metro the hotel is almost diagonally across. It's about a 2 min walk to the hotel.
Wishing you an enjoyable stay in Madrid.
