CONCLUSION

A few days ago, I flew from Madrid Airport flying LATAM and had a chance to visit the newly renovated IBERIA Velazquez Lounge in Terminal 4S. This is definitely a big improvement basing it on the pictures of the old lounge I saw from the internet. The design is modern and has the right colors (Iberia colors 😉) and there were lots of seating areas. I personally loved the Dining Room although I was not able to use it since I was there in the afternoon and it was not supposed to open until 9:30pm, I guess pretty much like the BA Concorde Dining Room in Heathrow T3. The buffet spread included cold salad and sandwiches although just before I left, a few minutes past 2pm, they had started to put hot meals which included among others rice, vegetables and fish dishes. The self-serve bar located to the right of the reception was beautiful and had a great selection of wines and liquors. The nap room and shower suites are nice amenities considering that the lounge is open 24 hours. Overall, this is a very nice lounge with great amenities and modern design although I wish I had the chance to sample the food being served in the dining room. Hopefully next time 😍
