Other suggestions for places to stay with convenient access to the university campus are the following:

Staying in the north of Madrid, close to Chamartin train station

The conference venue is approximately 20 km. north to the city center, so the most convenient way to stay within Madrid well connected via subway to enjoy the free time in the city and at the same time not spending too much time every day to attend the conference is staying in the north of the city. The best areas in this sense are close to Chamartin (commuter train station). We recommend staying as close as possible to Chamartin station, as getting to the campus using the commuter train is very fast (line C-4, only two stops to reach Cantoblanco Universidad, about 15 minutes + 10 minutes walk from Cantoblanco Universidad station to the venue). Right there in Chamartin station we recommend:

Hotel Husa Chamartin (****)

Staying in the north of Madrid, close to Plaza de Castilla

Other convenient place to find accommodation, very close to Chamartin train station, is in the area of Plaza de Castilla. Plaza de Castilla is well connected to the conference venue with a direct suburban bus (line 714). This bus goes from Plaza de Castilla to the campus in 30-35 minutes, but has the advantage of stopping right at the conference venue (Escuela Politécnica Superior), thus avoiding the 10 minutes walk from the train station in the campus. The area of Plaza de Castilla is also well connected to the rest of Madrid by subway. Right there in Plaza de Castilla we recommend:

Abba Castilla Plaza Hotel (****S)

Staying in the city center, close to Sol train station

Although the venue is approximately 20 km. north to the city center, there is a good public transportation via commuter train between the center and the venue from Sol station to Cantoblanco Universidad station (line C-4).
