After a Pleasant flight to Madrid from Chicago on Iberia’s A330 in business class, I cleared passport control and headed to Terminal 4. Tucked away at the end of the terminal just past Starbucks and McDonald’s is the VIP Lounge Plaza Mayor. Since I had a few hours to kill before heading on down to Rome I thought I’d grab a snack and check it out.
- When: December 2018
- Where: Madrid, Spain T4, 1st Floor
- Access: Priority Pass
- Hours: 5am to 11pm
The Lounge is one big room
From the check-in counter you can essentially see the lounge in its entirety. However, because the walls are all floor to ceiling glass it doesn’t feel that confined and sure enough, I found seating quite easily at the work station.
I access the lounge during breakfast and there was a small spread of what I’d call continental options. A bit of fruit, cheese, pastries, cookies, coffee, and booze were available.
There are two showers. Both were occupied when I showed up, but within 10 minutes one had freed up. Very clean and even included a nice robe!
If you have a bit of time prior to departure, it’s a fine place to spend a bit of time. There’s Wifi, a shower, but the food is very sparse, and I’m not sure I would say there is a true meal replacement option…at least for breakfast.
