    We had a fabulous stay at the Gran Melia. Met our expectations in every way. Room lovely and well equipped and the pool area was very restful. Pool is small, but then it is central Madrid and on the roof - so enough to do the trick of cooling off on a hot day. Recommended.

    Affordable luxury
    The hotel was superbly situated for central Madrid and for all transport links. The staff were really friendly, helpful and obviously enjoyed their work. We had a junior suite which I couldn't fault. All our expectations were met and more! The gardens were a beautiful oasis and the food and service excellent. I didn't want to leave and would thoroughly recommend it. I'm looking forward to going back!
