The Parisian Eye Edition -IHG’s Hotel Indigo Madrid
Once at Hotel Indigo Madrid, the rooftop pool immediately became my favorite part of the hotel…
But I have to say, if I had been lazy, I wouldn’t have left my air conditioned Deluxe room for the week-end… Spacious with a panoramic view over the neighborhood, it felt brand new and stylish like the rest of the hotel with nice and modern pieces of art inspired by the city and neighborhood, yet cosy like a cocoon with the super soft bed and rain shower.
Of course, traveling to this unknow destination also was the occasion for me to explore the local life.
Here again, I couldn’t have thought of a better location : at night, I just had to step out of the quiet Calle de Silva to be immediately immersed in the vibrant urban life of Gran Vía, while the iconic Chueca area was just a nice walk away to get a taste of a more authentic Spanish lifestyle (countless bars and restaurants serving delicious food and beverages – and as you can guess tapas and sangria were on top of my list).
During the day, Hotel Indigo Madrid also proved to be a perfectly located starting point to explore the city landmarks : the Parque del Retiro of course, but also the royal palace, the Puerta del Sol, and the unmistakable Mercado San Miguel food market, where you will find the best sangria in town to rehydrate while exploring Madrid on a warm day !
