My wife and I stayed here at the Unico for 2 nights last week. First of all, the neighborhood of Salamanca is absolutely the best. Full of high-end intl. shopping, local shops, great restaurants, tree lined lanes, I can't imagine staying in any other barrio of Madrid.
The Unico itself is a great little hotel, we stayed in a garden room, number 111, overlooking a small grassy area behind the hotel, and with a small deck. The room is modern and comfortable, and reasonably sized for an in-city hotel (I have never stayed in a hotel room this large in Paris or London). The bathroom is fantastic, and the beds, linens and pillows top of the line.
But the best part of our stay was our lunch at the Ramon Freixa restaurant in the hotel, a 3 star Michelin affair. We booked a special deal a few months back, for 250Euros per night which included lunch for two at Ramon Freixa. Simply put, it was one of the finest meals I have ever had in my life! From the service (impeccable) the the presentation, to the flavors, this place is not to be missed.
I had no complaints with the front desk, or service. In fact, we had a very early flight out of Madrid, and had to leave the hotel around 06:30. There was immediate help available for quick checkout, baggage, taxi, etc.
