Salamanca, Madrid, Spain

Oyster Review Summary

Photos and Review by Oyster.com Investigators

Pros

  • Pleasant location on a tree-lined street in the outskirts of Salamanca
  • Big, comfortable rooms with flat-screen TVs and marble bathrooms
  • Sunny roof deck with adjacent (but indoor) whirlpool
  • Fitness center and spa with one treatment room, sauna, and tanning bed
  • On-site piano bar and modern, reasonably-priced restaurant
  • Free cocktail hour
  • 24-hour room service

Cons

  • Double beds are often two twin beds pushed together (common in Madrid)
  • Some complaints of the smell of smoke
  • Fee for Wi-Fi

Bottom Line

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.

Oyster Hotel Review

 Location

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.

  • 14-minute drive to Madrid-Barajas International Airport
  • 2-minute walk to the Lazaro Galdiano Museum, famous writer's mansion
  • 19-minute walk to the National Archaeological Museum
  • 20-minute walk to the Wax Museum
  • 6-minute drive to the Puerta de Alcala arch, or 14 minutes via public transportation
  • 6-minute drive to the Plaza de la Cibeles fountains, or 12 minutes via public transportation
  • 7-minute drive to Retiro Park, or 14 minutes via public transportation
  • 8-minute drive to Cason del Buen Retiro, a royal museum and gardens, or 15 minutes via public transportation
  • 9-minute drive to the Prado museum, or 20 minutes via public transportation
