Hi, I'm planning on walking the Camino Invierno next March/April. I'll fly to Madrid, stay overnight and on to Ponferrada the next day, probably by bus.

Can anyone recommend a reasonably priced hotel or hostal near the bus station please?

Thanks

Hi. Probably best to put your approx. price point as ‘reasonably priced’ means very different things to different people!

Which bus station? Airport? Av. de Americas?
Av de Americas, I think. We would probably get a cheaper hotel away from the airport. I think the bus goes to Ponferrada from Av de Americas.

I stayed at the Av de Americans AC hotel a few blocks away when I was down there last, but I usually stay for free on points as a member of their loyalty club. I am sure there are other hotel options. You can take bus 200 from T1-4 to Av. de Americas from the airport. I did that last time, too and it runs about every 20 minutes. I went into the bus station and bought my ticket for the next day and then went to my hotel and slept. You can probably buy tickets electronically now or from a machine, but I usually go to the counter if possible (old school). Last time I left from Av de Americans was in in 2018.

Thank you. I'll have a look.

While in Madrid this last Spring, before & after Camino walking, I stayed at a very nice Hotel in a community adjacent to the airport called: Barajas, one metro stop from T4. It’s called the Villa de Barajas. Easy walking distance from the metro station. Twin room went for around $60/night. Got it through Booking.com.
