I've got a job in Madrid this summer in the Alcobendas area. I know this is in the North of Madrid about 15-20minutes from plaza de Castilla but does anyone know if there is a metro stop nearby or which bus might be the right one to get from the centre of Madrid, or anything else generally about the area. Thanks!
As far as I know there is not any metro to Alcobendas. Anyway try www.metromadrid.es website to move inside Madrid.
I went once from Madrid to Alcobendas, I took a taxi because I was in a hurry, but it is sure that there are public buses.
I'm from London, but live and work in Madrid at the moment. In fact I work in Alcobendas. I drive to work. It's about 20-25 mins from Plaza Castilla, depending on traffic. Anyhoo, if my memory serves me correctly you can get the 154 or the 152 bus from Plaza Castilla to Alcobendas, from bus lane no. 9. I'm sure your employers can confirm this for you.
