On the outskirts of the fashionable Salamanca district
Hotel Melia Galgos is located on a wide, tree-lined street in fashionable Salamanca district. Salamanca, the most affluent area in the Madrid city center, boasts top-notch boutiques, delicious restaurants, and some beautiful mansions. It is also home to traditional markets as well as the U.S. embassy and a small business district. Though sights are still within walking distance of the hotel, it's not quite as centrally located as the similar Gran Hotel Velazquez.
The capital of Spain is a vibrant, multicultural city located right in the center of the country. The Cuatro Torres business area's additions to the city skyline (four sleek towers, including a hotel and corporate offices) give an idea of what Madrid is rapidly becoming: a sophisticated, cosmopolitan city -- albeit one that preserves its century-old traditions.
The 309-room Hotel Melia Galgos is located in fashionable Salamanca district. Rooms are big by Madrid standards and are updated with large flat-screen TVs and marble bathrooms. Some rooms are bright with large windows while others overlook an interior courtyard and are on the dark side. Amenities are the real highlight here: The hotel offers 24-hour room service, a free cocktail hour, a fitness center, a whirlpool, and a roof deck for tanning during the summer months. There is also a piano bar and reasonably priced restaurant. While there is a pesky fee for Wi-Fi, this hotel is a good pick for amenities and a quiet location.
