ME Madrid Reina Victoria
Built in the Nineteenth century this hotel was once where the Madrid bullfighters went to drink. Now, totally modernised, Hotel ME Madrid Reina Victoria is the choice place to stay in the Spanish capital. Clooney, Affleck and DiCaprio – among others – all stay here for loco A-list shenanigans. Located right on Plaza de Santa Ana in the heart of the city it’s the hotel for those looking to have fun in Madrid.
The roof terrace bar is one of the most fashionable places to drink in Madrid (with great views over the city), while the St Ana Restaurant does great modern-Spanish food and a brilliant meat-based breakfast.
Ultra modern rooms, with private terraces, Jacuzzis, Nintendo Wii and PlayStations, sound systems, maxi (rather than mini) bars and hangover recovery kits all point to the fact this isn’t the sort of place where Lord Toffington goes for afternoon tea.
If you’re thinking of going to Madrid for the Real v Barca El Classico next week then this is the ideal base for a big weekend away. Just don’t wear a Barca shirt.
