At an enviable location at the heart of the city, the Plaza Santa Ana – you can’t get more “Madrid” than this. Directly facing the hotel is this busy square with a distinctly Spanish vibe, filled with visitors, quintessentially Madrid late-diners and party revellers. It is located just a short walk from Chueca where all the fun you could ever have and more is, but also close to culture – the Prado Museum, Thyssen-Bornemisza Museum and Reina Sofia Museum deep in the city’s glorious, historic core. 

The accommodations are impressive and sensual, although there are some very, very small rooms in the centre of the building, looking into a courtyard –  immaculately designed to fool you into spaciousness, but they are in fact tiny – I guess with Madrid offering so much, 24 hours a day, all you really need is somewhere to rest your head – but my advice it to pick-out a room with a view and more space as a result.

The hotel had just been refurbished and this is evident in its contemporary, arty suites. Its location is enviable; the busy square below has a distinctly Spanish vibe, filled with visitors, quintessentially Madrid late-diners and party revellers.

ut the jewel in the crown of this property is “Radio Rooftop” with spectacular views of the city and where the city’s fashionistas and scene hang out. When I visited, I was treated to a full-on fashion party, full of beautiful people, go-go boys and drag queens – and with locals being so friendly and Madrid now being a truly cosmopolitan and international city – I had a real blast.
