Location is definitely a big draw for the ME Madrid -- it's in Plaza de Santa Ana, the heart of the city's basically everything (eating, shopping, clubbing). But there's more to this hotel than its whereabouts. It also features some uber cool features -- 192 stylish contemporary rooms with upscale amenities, a rooftop bar with gorgeous views, a high-end spa and fitness center (next door), sexy and sleek design, a trendy restaurant and bar, and an undeniably hip clientele.
In the heart of Madrid's restaurant and shopping scene, on one of its most famous plazas
The ME’s location on vibrant Plaza de Santa Ana is hard to beat. The square, lined with restaurants and tapas bar, is one of the most popular places in Madrid. It's a hotspot for sure, as young Madrileños flock here Thursday through Sunday to sit in one of the terraces or go bar hopping.
The hotel is also just a few blocks from Puerta del Sol, as well as the center stage of the Madrid action -- shopping, nightlife, and dining.
The property is also within walking distance of Plaza Mayor, Madrid’s main square, the historic neighborhood of the Austrias (with beautiful cobblestone streets and 17th-century architecture), and Gran Via, one of the two major thoroughfares in Madrid and an important shopping hub. The subway, train and buses are just a few blocks away.
