I normall stay at a Best Western, Villa De Barajas, it's only 5-10 minutes in a taxi. Ideal when spotting for a day or 2 in MAD.

There are quite a few...

Meliá Barajas - 1km away
Tryp Diana - 1-2kms away
NH Barajas - 2kms
Best Western - not sure
Hi-Tech - 1km
Auditorium Madrid Hotel 3 - 4km (Across the A2 motorway with great views of the airport from the upper floors).
Puerta Madrid 8 - 9kms. Great...super nice hotel although not exactly in the airport area, but it should have a shuttle service...must be less than 10 minutes away if the traffic is not heavy.

And some others I can't recall right now.

There's also this small hotel right next to SENASA and the Cargo Center office building, which seems to have very good views of the south ramp due to it's location although it only has 2 or 3 floors. I can't remember it's name but it's the closest hotel to the airport.

In about 1 year from now, the Hilton Madrid Airport hotel will be open.

I've stayed twice at the Tryp Diana.

Free shuttle bus, clean hotel with good rooms, and close to the airport.

Some rooms have limited views of the airport...

I would not bother using an airport hotel at MAD as it's very cheap and very quick to go downtown (using the ultra-efficient metro). I have been to MAD over 5 times and always stay downtown. If you'd like some info. re. spotting at MAD, give me a shout.
