Arguelles, Madrid, Spain

Review Summary

Photos and Review by

Pros

  • Good location: close to shops and several sites, but not in a frenetic, touristy area
  • Beautiful, modern rooms with flat-screen TVs
  • Spacious marble bathrooms with his-and-hers vanities
  • Mediterranean cuisine, burgers, tapas, and cocktails at sleek UNO
  • Indoor swimming pool (fees apply) and small fitness center
  • Spa with several treatment rooms, a sauna, and Turkish baths (closed on weekends)
  • 24-hour room service

Cons

  • Frosted bathroom doors aren't particularly family-friendly (main bathroom door is opaque, so can be closed for additional privacy)
  • Fee for Wi-Fi
  • In-room lighting system is a bit confusing

Bottom Line

From the outside, the Melia Madrid looks like your average business hotel. Step inside, however, and you will be surrounded by distinctive details that give the interior spaces a modern, arty vibe, such as the funky light fixtures, sleek leather couches, and elegant antiques in the airy lobby. In addition to its unique decor, the Melia offers amenities that are a rarity at Madrid hotels, including a small fitness center, indoor pool (fees apply), and a spa (albeit closed on weekends). The real highlight, though, are the spacious rooms with flat-screen TVs, plush beds, red accents, and gorgeous marble bathrooms. The hotel attracts both business and leisure travelers, as it has a business center, event spaces, and a good location near various attractions.

Location

On a main shopping street in the Arguelles district

Map of Melia Madrid Princesa

Melia Madrid Princesa is located in the small Arguelles district, just a short walk from Comillas Pontifical University and numerous bus and metro stops. The hotel gets its name from the street it sits on: Calle Princesa, which is a shopper's paradise. This street is lined with numerous boutiques, as well as some restaurants.

Though mainly a residential neighborhood, Arguelles is known for its great shopping. Several tourist attractions, such as Templo de Debod and West Park, are also located nearby. It is a particularly popular district during the summertime when the cafes offer outdoor seating along the park.

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.
