MADRID: Hotel Meninas in the Heart of Madrid

Hotel Meninas Exterior

Hotel Meninas, Madrid

Set in the Opera House area, one of the best locales for sightseeing in Madrid, is the boutique four-star Hotel Meninas.  Its central location makes for a great base camp while exploring one of Spain’s most historical city.

The 19th century building is a protected landmark. It’s exterior is quintessential Madrid, yet its interior boasts the most modern amenities and contemporary style. Each guest room is designed in contemporary flair. I was hosted in room 504- the 5th floor being the top floor of the hotel.

Each of the rooms are designed to make you feel at home, complete with flat-screen satellite TV, a DVD player, room safe, and stocked mini-bar. I’m a big “bathroom inspector”, and was happy to find a beautiful contemporary marble bathroom with all the “fixins”.

In this 37 room hotel there are 8 junior suites, and “family” rooms that are spacious enough to house four people, non-smoking rooms, and also rooms for the disabled, which in Europe is hard to come by. There is also a spa and roof top pool with views of the city.

Being a techno-geek, with the need to constantly be connected, and what I loved is the free internet access in the rooms, and Wifi in the lobby area.  Another amenity on the house!

There is a restaurant in the old wine cellar called the Meninas Restaruant. They also serve a continental breakfast for $15.00 Euro.

I stepped outside the hotel’s doors- made a right then a quick left into the east square- Plaza de Oriente. Within a few blocks squared, choose from Italian, Argentinean, Tapas bars, Sushi, outdoor cafes, all with in walking distance of the Meninas.
