About Ayre Gran Hotel Colon

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.

Ayre Gran Hotel Colon
OK place to stay in Madrid
Average stay at this hotel. While more of their staff is very nice, check-in left an impression of underskilled staff. Room was spacious, but bed was bloody hard to lay down in. If you like firm mattress this is for you, if not well.. it will be painful. Breakfast is okay with some choice but not amazing. I would overall rate this hotel around 3* but wouldn't go over it. It was an okay stay for business but I would choose another place to stay for weekend the next time...
