On the northern edge of swanky Salamanca
The NH Principe is located on the northern edge of the 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.
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 173-room NH Principe de Vergara is a great option on the outskirts of the swanky Salamanca neighborhood. Sure, most sights are a subway ride or drive away, but shops and restaurants are within walking distance, and the hotel has an impressive range of features for its price category -- including a small gym, a restaurant with an extensive breakfast buffet, and massage services. The rooms have a stylish green and white color scheme, patterned accent walls, modern furniture, flat-screen TVs, and sleek bathrooms. There's a fee for in-room Wi-Fi, but guests can get 30 minutes free each day in the lobby, and the hotel offers solid value overall.
