We (Mrs and I) went to Madrid for a weekend break.
We have stayed in a number of 5* hotels over the last few years and were not disappointed with the Melia. The Melia is located just off the Gran Via in Madrid with very easy access to the Metro. The Metro stop Ventura Rodriguez is literally on your doorstep although we tended to walk pretty much everywhere.
The Melia building is not exactly the height of architectural splendor, however the decor and rooms were stunning. Very trendy. The hotel rooms are, however slightly small. The bathroom contains his and her sinks with a sliding door separating the wash area and bath/toilet area.
Very nice bed.
One issue that we did have is that the Melia is described as being right on a Plaza when it is not. The nearest Plaza is Plaza Espana, which is a couple of minutes walk away. There are also shops and restaurants a couple of minutes walk away.
Nearby attractions include the Temple Debod, Teleferico, Gran Via, Plaza Espana and the Palace.
Overall a very good place to stay in order to explore the delights of Madrid.
