Oyster Review Summary

Photos and Review by Oyster.com Investigators

Pros

  • Located in Madrid's financial district; convenient for business travelers
  • Elegant rooms with antique-looking furniture and marble bathrooms
  • Suites are very polished with dramatic drapes and comfy beds
  • Spacious fitness center with modern cardio machines and free weights
  • Seasonal courtyard pool, big enough for swimming laps
  • Two upscale restaurants, a pool bar, and an indoor bar
  • 24-hour room service

Cons

  • Location is far from tourist destinations
  • Some lower-level rooms have tube TVs
  • Fee for Wi-Fi

Bottom Line

The 915-room Melia Castilla hotel is located in Madrid's financial district. Rooms are large and feature classic decor -- think warm colors, pastel striped walls, and marble bathrooms -- though details such as tube TVs keep them from feeling too luxurious. Suites feel much more polished than the regular rooms with dramatic beds and nice accents. Hotel perks include a spacious fitness center, an outdoor pool (open only during the summer), and a pool bar. There are also two upscale restaurants. While this hotel has good amenities -- including 24-hour room service -- those looking for a central location near the sights may consider staying in Salamanca or Retiro.

Oyster Hotel Review

 Location

In Madrid's financial district

Melia Castilla is located in Cuzco, Madrid's financial district. There are few tourist attractions in the area aside from the Santiago Bernabeu, where the Real Madrid soccer team plays.

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.

  • 16-minute drive to the Madrid-Barajas International Airport
  • 16-minute walk to Santiago Bernabeu
  • 11-minute drive, or 25-minute subway ride, to the National Archaeological Museum
  • 13-minute drive, or 26-minute subway ride, to Arco de La Victoria monument
  • 13-minute drive, or 26-minute subway ride, to West Park, lined by restaurants
  • 13-minute drive, or 31-minute subway ride, to the Museo de America
  • 14-minute drive, or 27-minute subway ride, to the Templo de Debod, an ancient Egyptian temple (donated to Madrid) with scenic views of the city
  • 14-minute drive, or 23-minute subway ride, to the Cerralbo Museum, an art museum housed in historic mansion
  • 15-minute drive, or 33-minute subway ride, to the Prado Museum
