Madrid hotel with ok airport access

I'll be flying into Madrid from California, and have to overnight before catching a small local flight the next day. I'll have an afternoon/evening of my arrival and the next day till noon. It's been years since I have been. IIRC there is a train from the airport. If so, any recommendations of where to stay in town (NOT at airport) that is easy to and from airport, and close to Prado area? I prefer tasty to stay in smaller boutique hotels, but totally flexible. Any suggestions welcome. Thanks.......

What airline are you flying in on? Depending on which one, you may have to take the bus to the terminal where the train is.

I think the Only You Atocha is probably what you're after.

Take the yellow airport express bus directly to/from T1 rather than the train and it leaves you right across the street from Atocha and the hotel is a short walk to Prado and Retiro park.

Re airport bus, be careful with pickpockets.

Otherwise, depending on the time of your flight, East / North east hotels within the M-30 road should be within 15-25mins tops to the airport with a taxi.
