We stayed at Hotel Meninas at the beginning of May 2014 and had a fantastic weekend.
The décor is very effective; the grey, white and pink colour scheme throughout the hotel creates a modern fill against the traditional 19th century building. My parents had booked a junior suite which was lovely; three Juliet balconies, separate lounge area and a nice size bathroom. We had booked a standard double room which was just as nice on a smaller scale, with one Juliet balcony and a lovely bathroom (with good toiletries - very important). Mini bar was well stocked and reasonably priced.
The hotel staff were really friendly and helpful. The breakfast area is down in the basement, it's a nice breakfast, but I'm not sure I'd worry about having it included if I returned, especially with so many little street cafes on your doorstep. They've really tried to brighten it up, but we preferred to be outside in the glorious sunshine sipping our Spanish cortado coffees.
The location of the hotel is fantastic, you are within walking distance (10 mins) to most of the main sites in Madrid; Gran Via, Plaza de la Puerta del Sol, Plaza Mayor and the lovely buzzy market of San Miguel. You are literally 5 mins from the Teatro Real, Palace and Plaza de Oriente. The easy to use metro is at the bottom of the street (Ópera) too for any places that aren't within walking distance.
This hotel really ticks all the boxes for a city break and when I return to Madrid I won't hesitate to book this place again.
