A gem hotel with a rooftop pool in Madrid

swimming pool on the barcelo emperatriz hotel

Already back and you want to leave again?

We have spotted a terrific hotel for a wild city-break in Madrid: Hotel Barceló Emperatriz… On the program: happy hour tapas, pool with a view and churros. A winning combo.

The place? A brand new 5-star gem, located at the heart of the city, right near the main shopping artery. In addition to ultra comfy rooms, Hotel Barcelo Emperatriz goes all out with great small extra attentions.

A wide choice of pillows (size/ feathers / anti-dust mite etc…) to choose which one you will be spending the night with, a healthy mini bar, available electric curler, loan of a nomad Wifi box to have Google Maps and Instagram everywhere you go… A sum of details that will make your life infinitely more sweet and pleasant. Bravo!

The thing to test absolutely: their rooftop with pool and cocktails bar, where you will surely spend highly chill evenings. Wake up to a fab Latino buffet with all kinds of eggs, tortilla, chorizo and local ham, churros and chocolate.

While you are there : visit the stunning collection of paintings at the Thyssen Museum, go for an orgy of bellota and a big shop-op at Zara and Uterqüe, the deluxe version of the Spanish giant.

Travel time: 2h for a direct flight Paris-Madrid + 15 minutes by taxi, easy.

Starting at 177€ per night with breakfast included.
