The convenience of the free shuttle to and from the airport is nice. They also have a shuttle to downtown for 6EU per person, which is not bad considering a taxi is about 19 to 25.
The hotel is in good condition and the breakfast was good. Personnel was very professional.

I stayed at Princess Sofia for almost a week as I was on a business trip in Barcelona.the location was a walking distance from the venue of the conference I was attending. It was also 3 min walk to the subway station, tram and bus and 5 min walk from the main shopping department stores.
The T3 train would take you right to the heart of las rambles , Catalunya which the famous street in Barcelona.
Hotel staff are exceptionally nice, friendly and very helpful. They would go out of their way to assist in any request. I am a frequent traveller either for business or pleasure and my judgment is quite objective having been to hotels ranging from 3 to 7 stars.
Now, the downside : 1. hotel business center is free as well as the Internet and printing. However, the computers were often not working. But as soon as you dial a 9 number and ask for assistance , a staff member would rush for help. The job always gets done, but it would take a bit longer which is sometimes annoying if you don't have time.
2. The restaurants choice is somehow limited for a 5- star hotel. The roof top restaurant/bar was always closed during my stay . But again, I was on a business trip. So whatever was available was ok.
I would definitely recommend the hotel for business travellers as other hotels closer to the beach or tourist areas are super noisy, crowded and less attentive to guests.

If you don't mind the price it is certainly good, it is a little above others in the area but you are certainly receiving enough in exchange... and some luxury. It is big and you have to walk to certain areas. The Restaurant is great and also the breakfast buffet. The pool is also very nice.
Its location is very convenient for a one night stop since it is near terminal 1 (T1) in Madrid Barajas, but a little inconvenient if you have to make other touristic stops.
Located in Barajas, this luxury hotel is 0.9 mi (1.5 km) from Plenilunio Shopping Area and 2.7 mi (4.4 km) from Madrid …More
The hotel is clean and staff are nice but our room was next to the dining area and it was kind of noisy in the morning when everyone comes in for breakfast. The location is great, walking distance to the Prado and the Palace. Restaurants everywhere and safe at night.

The most beautiful location with all rooms overlooking the bay. All staff, without exception, were friendly and professional. You can do as little or as much as you want. A short walk along the coast line takes you to Santa Ponsa beach, stopping off for a cool drink on the way. The hotel has plenty of sun loungers around the pool and you can take part in activities or just sunbathe on your own private terrace, watching the yachts and speed boats go past. The food was very good considering most of it is buffet style. Food can also be cooked to order. Waiting staff very efficient at bringing drinks and removing empty plates.
