Considering that we booked this hotel with little research into it, it turned out to be an absolute gem! Towering above the local neighborhood, this hotel seems a little out of place with its ultra modern decor and grand marble reception area. The moment we walked in we were greeted very warmly and the staff seemed genuinely happy that we had chosen their hotel as a base to see Madrid.
Its not often that you can say that a reception area almost leaves you speechless, yet when we arrived, the sheer size and expense of the place just takes some getting used to. The main seating area was on a raised marble platform with plenty of seating and internet portals to keep you occupied should you need them. Once we had checked in our bags were taken to our room and we were encouraged to view the facilities of the hotel, such as the spa, pool and sports area. All the facilities were in excellent condition and we straight away made use of the pool as the temperature on arrival was in the mid-thirties.
Onto our room and again, considering we had little information about the hotel etc, our room turned out to be one of the suites on the top floor which was a nice surprise. You could have played football in the room it was so big and the bathroom was enormous also. The room had everything you could have wanted for a stay in such a grand hotel. Nothing was to much trouble for the staff and it is somewhere i would recommend in an instant to anyone wishing to add a little bit of extra luxury to their Madrid trip.
As we were checking out, the receptionist informed us (more directed at me i think) that Brazilian midfielder Robinho was due to have his press conference there the following day. Needless to say i was a little disapointed that our stay wasn't just a day longer.
I'm in the process of organising a weekend trip to Madrid for 10 of us in August in honour of my sister's hen night.
First of all, we are planning to stay at the Mirasierra Suites Hotel just outside of Madrid - has anyone stayed here previously, and if so, what did you think?
Secondly, please can anyone recommend a spa or anything that a group of 20-something girls would appreciate? Any nightlife recommendations would also be extremely welcome!
Thanks in anticipation..
Medina Mayrit spa is really amazing, as well their restaurant (you will find complete details at my Madrid VT page).
Just curious... why did you choose a hotel outside the city centre?? Never been to this one, but honestly, I don't think that any place would be worth the waste of time on transfers, especially as you are planning to enjoy Madrid nightlife.
I know this hotel and it is brand new and beautiful. Nice area, far away from touristy places. If you are OK with being far away from almost everything, then you will enjoy. Anyway, bear in mind Spain is a developed country and specially in Madrid public transportation is safe, reliable and second to none. You will have no problem to come back from your dancing sessions either by taxi (about 20 euros) or night bus (1 euro)...
