Review Fenix Gran Hotel Madrid Melia

Page Content

The Fenix Gran Hotel Madrid Melia
The Fenix Gran Hotel Madrid has a regal presence about it. It's just off the Plaza Colon, which is surrounded by prestigious buildings, and many of the rooms have views over to the big Avenue of Castellana and the large fountain in the centre of the road. Entry to the hotel is from a smaller, more tranquil street, and once inside the first thing you'll notice is the plush red carpet spilling down the stairs into the lobby. The whole effect is grand.
