Unless I'm wrong, Puerta del sol in T3 is not used for AF pax but for UX flights departing from T3. AF flights depart from T1 and so are directed to Cibeles lounge.

Sorry, KLM flights depart from T3.

It would probably be good to add 1) entry requirements (see brunos's point), 2) loungers/sleep area, 3) view (a personal pet topic!), 4) opening hours. Also some elements might not fit pre-established criteria (eg multi floors, terrace, smoking area, direct boarding etc). Decor might be quite subjective/hard to characterise but why not indeed!
