    Accommodation 8.45 /10

    You can access the rooms of the Intercontinental by going via lovely corridors, fitted with carpet, just as the rooms are. The latter are nicely decorated with a large painting above the bed. They have an armchair, a round table, a desk, two separate beds, a satellite TV with 25 channels, a free safe with an electronic code and large enough to store a laptop in it, individual air-conditioning, a telephone and a mini-bar, without forgetting the tea and coffee facilities. You can relax on the terrace, furnished with a round table and two chairs, but avoid leaning over, the protection barrier is not very high: keep a close eye on your children! The bedrooms and the whole hotel have wireless Internet access.
    The marble bathroom has a bathtub equipped with a handle, a flexible shower, a magnifying mirror, sophisticated hospitality products, tissues and a hair-dryer. A small separate area adorned with a lovely painting is fitted with a toilet and a bidet. Room-service is available 24 hours a day. The junior suites have a lounge, a larger terrace with two deckchairs, a double sink, a king sized bed, bathrobes, slippers, a separate flexible shower and a DVD player.

    Overview 8.45 /10

    A member of the hotel chain Intercontinental as its name suggests, the Intercontinental Madrid is housed in an 8-storey building which dates from 1950, but which was renovated in 2003. It boasts a total of 307 bedrooms - quite a lot for a city hotel! The lobby is grand, all done out in marble with a crystal chandelier hanging from the ceiling, pillars, tapestries on the walls, models of boats, in short, all this is not at all lacking in charm, but it just isn't enough to erase the impersonal side of this hotel which is a bit too business-like. However, it is very pleasant on a nice sunny day to relax in the garden with a drink, at the foot of the fountain bursting with flowers.

    Food and drink 8.20 /10

    The restaurant El Jardin has a maximum capacity of only 70 guests, which is very little when you think of the hotel's 307 rooms! The decoration, however, is very fancy - with carpet on the floor, large mirrors, some plants here and there and chandeliers hanging from the ceiling, all of it under a beautiful glass roof. On a sunny day, it is possible to eat out on the terrace and make the most of the garden (hence the name of the restaurant), adorned with fountains and waterfalls. The restaurant serves à la carte Mediterranean cuisine. Breakfast is served as early as 6:30 am (a pleasantly early breakfast service which is seldom found in other hotels) and until 11:00 am. Lunch is served from 1:30 pm to 4:30 pm and dinner from 8:00 pm to 11:00 pm. The piano bar 49 (the hotel's address) is open from 11:00 pm to 1:00 am. It is equipped with a large plasma screen and offers a musical ambiance in the evening.

    To know

    A Spanish brunch is served in the lobby every Sunday. To keep in good shape, go to the health centre, open 24 hours a day. On the programme - sauna, Turkish bath, solarium, massages and various treatments, a beauty salon, a hair-dressing salon and a gym. The lucky ones in the superior rooms have access to the lunch club where they have complementary newspapers at their disposal, a lounge area with a TV, Internet access and a breakfast buffet or pre-dinner drinks.
