This Review of Iberia's Business Class Lounge Velazquez at Madrid's Terminal 4S is based on our two visits this year, each of them prior to an Iberia Business Class flight to the U.S. Terminal 4S, which is where Iberia's non-Schengen flights depart from, is reached by a train from Terminal 4. The lounge is located in the middle of the Duty Free store:
Iberia Business Class Lounge Madrid Terminal 4S Seating and Amenities
After entering the lounge, you can store your luggage in a baggage room on the right:
Seating areas and buffets are on both sides of the lounge, right and left, which helps prevent overcrowding.
We especially like the seats that overlook the tarmac, which get good natural light from the windows. Each seat has a power outlet by it, but U.S. travelers of course will need to have a plug adapter.
Shower and nap rooms are only on the right hand side of the lounge, and if you want a shower, you'll want to request access at the time you check in. The shower room was immaculate, had a rain shower head, and water pressure was good.
Also on the right hand side of the lounge is a colorful area with small tables and chairs, as well as entertainment screens, for kids, although I didn't see any children on either of my two visits.
Iberia Business Class Lounge Madrid Terminal 4S Dining and Food
On both occasions I visited the lounge in the late morning, prior to an Iberia Business Class flight for the U.S. that departed in the early afternoon. I liked that in addition to breakfast pastries, there was plenty of fresh fruit, sandwiches, salads, and, this being Spain, olives galore. Some lounges seem to be stingy with fresh fruits and vegetables, but that's not the case here.
The only thing I wanted that I didn't see was some yogurt, so I asked a staff member, whom I expected to shrug and say there wasn't any, but to my pleasant surprise she asked me if I wanted fruit yogurt or plain yogurt, and brought me a container of the plain yogurt I asked for.
There are various bottled drinks and sodas in refrigerated cases, for passengers to help themselves to:
If you're a coffee drinker, don't miss an excellent barista-made Lavazza cappuccino from the bar:
Iberia's Business Class Lounge in Terminal 4S is one of the better international business class lounges in Europe that we've experienced, with clean and attractive shower rooms, excellent cappuccinos made to order, plenty of fresh fruit and salads, and seating (equipped with power outlets) near large windows by the tarmac, allowing for ample natural light. It's a good place to refresh, get some work done, or have a light meal before your flight.
