Review Hotel Urban Madrid
Glass elevators glide up to the 6th floor roof terrace and pool. The décor throughout is either in blacks and gold's or silver and grey, and there are ethnic sculptures from Egypt strategically placed in both public areas and in the rooms, which make up an impressive art collection. I didn't want to leave this luxury hotel, and the only way to believe it is to experience it yourself.
The Hotel Urban Madrid has the incredible Glass bar on the right as you enter. The fixtures are glass (or appear to be). It is one of the most stylish bars in Madrid.
