When you’re looking to have some adult fun with a romantic getaway in Madrid, you might consider whisking your sweetheart to the urban cool of ME Madrid Reina Victoria. It’s a full-fledged city hotel where you’ll find sleek contemporary design and decoration, as well as a great location and good service.
The historic Reina Victoria building regally presides over busy Santa Ana square (a popular destination on nights and weekends). But, the interior is all modern: clean lines in white, purple and black. And all the rooms are soundproofed, so the noise and city bustle stay outside.
Though the hotel has a restaurant/lounge and dining room as well as a rooftop bar with spectacular nighttime views of Madrid, there is also 24-hour room service if you, ahem, prefer to stay in your room. All the rooms have a bright purple mini-bar and free Wi-Fi, too. While there is no spa on the premises, the hotel has a deal with the spa next door.

To be honest, customer service in Spain often leaves much to be desired, but here the staff goes out of their way to take care of guests' needs. “Everything is possible here,” they say, and as they’re used to having some stars and bullfighters as guests, it's not too good to be true.
If you decide to sign up for a free members card, the hotel offers perks like a free late checkout and a two for one price on the breakfast buffet.
