    Accommodation 8.45 /10

    You will immediately be struck by the design of the Melia Madrid Princesa's rooms. Vast (28 m²), fitted with parquet flooring, they are perfectly well-equipped and decorated in a Japanese style. The stylish bedside cabinets and lighting features glow with fluorescent red light. A glass coffee table and desk, a red armchair, abstract contemporary art paintings, you won't know where to start. Some may be a little baffled by this type of decoration, but you have to admit that it is really original. Facilities include a satellite TV with 12 channels, a free safe with an electronic code and large enough to store a laptop in it, discreet air-conditioning, a telephone and a mini-bar. You also have free high-speed Internet access. A beautiful bay window offers beautiful views of the city, especially from the 11th and 12th floors. Half of the rooms have a view of the city centre and the other half of the mountains (snow-capped until April). Modern art works can be seen above the beds and in the stylish corridors glowing with fluorescent red light on the ceiling. The bathroom is of course as stylish and contemporary as the rest of the room. It is equipped with a double sink, a hair-dryer, bathrobes (or kimonos, because of the Japanese ambiance!), slippers, a curved magnifying mirror, sophisticated hospitality products, tissues, combs, shaving and toothbrush kits and even a telephone, all this complemented with a plant for decoration. The toilet is separated thanks to a sliding glass door. You can admire beautiful views of the city while peacefully resting in your bathtub, fitted with a handle and a flexible shower head. Junior suites have a large bubble bath as well as a separate tropical shower.

    Overview 8.45 /10

    A member of the Majorcan hotel chain Sol Melia, the Melia Madrid Princesa is visible from a long way away! This sky-scraper is an unmissable landmark, which can be seen from almost everywhere in the city! This 19-storey modern building indeed lacks a little charm, but the effect will be to give you a nice surprise when you witness the beauty of its interior! Built in 1967 and renovated in 2008, the hotel has 257 rooms. A magnificent contemporary and stylish lobby with four pillars, period furniture, large Chinese basins, a golden clock, a beautiful indoor swimming pool with the air of a Roman bath (statues, pillars, mosaic flooring), a top rate fitness centre, ultra modern rooms and a restaurant which is just as original. There is no doubt that you are in a five star luxury hotel.

    Food and drink 8.45 /10

    Breakfast is served in a large hall with a capacity of 190 guests, the decoration is almost conventional compared to the rest of the hotel. Copious and delicious, it is served from 7:00 am to 11:00 am. You can enjoy freshly squeezed orange juice, croissants, paella or even camembert! The restaurant for lunch (1:30 pm to 4:30 pm) and dinner (8:30 pm to 11:30 pm) has an ultra-contemporary design. With a capacity of 55 guests, it has mirror tables (ladies can put their make-up on and have their meal at the same time) and a sushi bar. The room is accessed through a glass sliding door. You will again find more of the red fluorescent light present in the rooms and the corridors. This a la carte restaurant serves Mediterranean cuisine, sushi and tapas. Open from 11:00 am to 10:00 pm, the lobby bar also has a stylish and contemporary design and a trendy atmosphere, where you can read international newspapers, have breakfast (from 7:00 am to 11:00 am) and listen to the trendy music in Ibiza. The restaurant bar, Uno, very stylish and equipped with a plasma screen TV, is open from 10:00 am to 1:00 am.

    To know

    Sports lovers will find everything they need in the top rate gym with the latest apparatus, free and open from 8:00 am to 10:00 pm. There is also time for relaxation. For this, go to the spa with its 3 massage rooms, two whirlpool baths and indoor heated rectangular swimming pool, open from 8:00 am to 10:00 pm. The decoration is worthy of the most beautiful Roman baths with mosaic flooring, pillars and statues.
