Hotel Silken Puerta America is known for its over-the-top design, from the colorful facade of the hotel to the rooms. Each of the 12 floors was executed by a different designer, and range from futuristic, space-like decor to sexy style with levitating beds and bold colors. Hotel features include a hip on-site restaurant, a small indoor pool, and a top floor bar, perfect for grabbing a drink with your significant other while enjoying the expansive views.
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 an indoor pool great for a dip with your other half after a long day of visiting the sights (fees apply), and a spa (albeit closed on weekends). The real highlight for couples, though, are the spacious rooms with flat-screen TVs, plush beds, red accents, and gorgeous marble bathrooms.
This playful, value property is a great pick for young couples. Rooms are quirky with curving furniture, tons of space, flat-screen TVs, and modern bathrooms. Hotel amenities include a year-round rooftop pool and a hopping rooftop bar/lounge with incredible views of Madrid. Suites are great for a romantic getaway--they offer extra features such as big balconies, even larger bathrooms, and sexy soaking tubs placed in the middle of the room.
Couples looking to go on an upscale romantic getaway should probably consider the Ada Palace. Spacious rooms are elegant (pale yellow striped walls, blue and white toile bedspreads), and have flat-screen TVs, minibars, and hydro massage showers. Additional highlights here include a wonderful (and expensive) restaurant with gorgeous views of the surrounding buildings, and a stylish rooftop lounge featuring comfy couches for two and low, footstool-style tables for drinks.
