Comfortable, high-quality and reasonably-priced hotels in Madrid

Madrid is one of the best cities in Europe for quality to price ratio in its hotels. Most hotels are 3 and 4 star and offer complete services and excellent location for business travellers and for those who want to enjoy a relaxing place on their trip to the capital. The ones with the best price and highest quality, along with the most modern services, can be found in the heart of Madrid and business districts.

A hotel with a good price to quality ratio is not a cheap hotel but a reasonably-priced hotel. This is the foundation on which we want to start. Using these words subtly, words that are normally synonyms, helps us to find a hotel that does not lack in services, moreover the opposite; the result is finding a hotel with good services and attention, accordingly.

A cheap hotel does not normally reach over 2 stars in Madrid, although those with 3 stars normally have very cheap rates. Be careful with these establishments because, in many cases, there are exceptions: this lower rate could see a lack of cleanliness, and rooms and common areas could be smaller (without a lift, 24 hour reception…).

The best category to opt for if you are looking for a good hotel is one with 4 stars. In this category, you can also find many diverse hotels; from those seeking to improve normal hotel facilities and reach new heights with cleanliness, spaciousness of rooms and personalised service; or more modern ones that play with design, with innovative spaces and services, maintaining traditional services but just updating them.

When it comes to choosing between each one, the factors you have to take into account are: what kind of trip you want; if you want a hotel where you can relax after a day discovering Madrid or the day after a long night out, or going to the cinema or the theatre, you should opt for a 4 star hotel in the middle of the city centre, with comfortable rooms where you can combine rest with daily trips around the city. That’s to say: a hotel with free Wi-Fi, private bathroom, 24 hour reception and additional services like free bike rental, airport transfers and breakfast included.

If you are travelling for business, the hotel needs to be located as close to the business district as possible. The areas of IfEMA and Barajas, for example, are well-connected to the city centre. This way, work days do not run over, you can take advantage of the rest of your day and take a stroll around the centre or eat out and go to see a comedy or musical show with the fantastic daily programme of events Madrid has to offer. In this case, it is important that the hotel offers good services within and outside of your room: free computer access, gym, spa area to relax and eliminate stress, restaurant, business centre and conference rooms for organising meetings with clients.

If you are travelling to Madrid with children, the city centre should be your point of reference. Being able to leave the hotel and head directly to the zones with the most popular landmarks or commerce districts is a sure winner. The little ones need stimulation and to be able to move around areas easily, without having to constantly travel on the underground or in a taxi. With this being said, look for hotel offers in Gran Via as a viable alternative, as there are many hotels with very accessible prices and good services in all this zone.

In any event, you should compare and read comments in all cases; read the information every hotel provides on their website carefully and be attentive to the special offers hotel chains offer on their own lines of communication and not through third parties. This could result in interesting savings on your final expenditure without missing out on a decent, clean and comfortable hotel with excellent service in Madrid.

One of the best hotel chains for competitive prices and an excellent quality to price ratio is Petit Palace. You will be able to find numerous hotel options in Madrid for all types of travellers on their official website: from themed and antique hotels in the city centre to business hotels in the Barajas zone. Some of these are located in Gran Via, like Petit Palace Cliper Gran Vía; others near the airport, like Petit Palace Madrid Aeropuerto, ideal for a stop off in Madrid whilst waiting for your interconnecting flight; or Petit Palace Arturo Soria, located in a calmer zone, which is centred more around those who travel for work in the capital.

Mallorca, the family holiday paradise

Mallorca may be the island you want when you want… but if there is something that defines it beyond its borders is its cosy, family atmosphere. With the Balearic Islands being the largest and most complete in terms of the variety of activities for children in summer. Here we offer you some places of interest and plans with the kids that you can enjoy this year if you choose Mallorca as your holiday destination.


A day in the capital is practically an obligation if you travel to Mallorca. For children, the city has beautiful parks and areas for leisure as well as nearby beaches at which the bathrooms are completely safe even for the little ones. In the summer, when the sun goes down, there are many outdoor activities: concerts, cinema by the sea or in the town, dance or puppet shows, children’s festivals with workshops …

During the day, Palma is bustling full of people shopping, visitors who come to see its most famous museums and monuments, tourists and locals that crowd the terraces and squares to enjoy the typical varieties of tapas (potatoes, Pica pica, croquettes, russian salad …) and some beers. The children can play in these areas without problems, always with sun protection of course, because summers in Mallorca are often suffocating, especially in the middle of the day, when it is better to stay in the shade or submerged in the sea.

For those who after a dose of city tourism want to return to the salty sea without having to move much, the best beaches near the city are those on the route to the south, starting from Can Pere Antoni and the old neighbourhood marinero de Portixol towards the playa de Palma. Towards the west there are also highly recommended beaches such as Illetes (with a large terraced area on which you can enjoy a drink in front of the sea) and Cala Comtessa or Cala Major, just before it.

Playa de Muro

If you want a holiday area with children in which you can also enjoy the delights of free time and relax in the countryside, there is nothing like the famous Playa de Muro. On the north coast of Mallorca a more tranquil and to some extent, more select, tourism is found. Here far from the crowds, quality hotels with all the services are designed for enjoying the landscape in a sustainable, respectful and natural way.

Many of the sport and active holiday lovers choose this area of ​​Mallorca, since it is also very close to the end of the Serra de Tramuntana overlooking Menorca and the spectacular Cabo Formentor. Cyclists and whole families fond of watersports, hiking or Nordic Walking arrange a date in Playa de Muro, Alcudia and Pollença to give themselves a few days away from the mundanity of work, while being surrounded by sea and countryside.

For children there are plenty of children’s playgrounds, specially designed sports courts, nautical schools, small theme parks and nature spots with walking or cycling routes, a top class water park and urban walks with fun souvenir shops in which you can find all the objects and toys that one can imagine.

The gastronomy is varied, influenced mainly in the most touristy areas by a British touch, since they are the largest and most faithful groups of visitors: from the UK thousands and thousands of travellers arrive to Playa de Muro every year. Prices for accommodation may be slightly higher than in other areas but the quality of the accommodation is higher.

There are more discreet areas for couples tourism on this coast but if you go to Playa de Muro with children you can also enjoy a romantic getaway and enjoy this little piece of Mediterranean paradise. In fact, there are as many hotels for families there are also great hotels for adults only, such as Hotel Piscis Adults Only or Garden Holiday Village.

Calvià and the west coast

On the other side, we find another destination in Mallorca where children will be treated as the stars: the beaches of Calvià, Portals Nous, Palmanova, Bendinat … to Andratx and Sant Elm, passing by Peguera and El Toro. It is also one of the most suitable areas for lovers of quiet and sophisticated holidays. The coves are like those in the postcards, small, calm waters with shallow sandy bottoms. There are also places with rocks but they are easy enough for all ages to access.

Marineland, aquaparks, children’s playgrounds next to the beaches, Kathmandu (now a hotel with an amusement park under the name of Melià and now called Sun Kathmandu Park), the offer of activities for holidays with the kids n this area is much higher than in other parts of the island. For this reason, it is common for it to be thought of, along with Muro – as the most family friendly area of ​​Mallorca.

The further west, the more exclusive the accommodation and the areas. The best thing to do if you are going with children is to stay in the area of ​​Palmanova and Santa Ponsa, as they are the most beautiful and safest areas, with special areas for children and with hotels tailor made for those who travel with their family. With accommodation such as the Gran Isla chain, the Pirates Village and the Plazamar Serenity Resort which offer spacious and fully equipped apartments specially for families with common areas designed for your enjoyment, for example; its own movie theatre, swimming pool, live performances …  and the Tropico Playa, located in front of Palmanova beach.

If you want to check prices and offers for accommodation for families or as a couple in Mallorca always opt for the official websites of each hotel rather than the price comparison websites. Hotels can usually offer better rates when designing their own since they will save having to pay the intermediary if the reservation is direct. It happens both in the Adults Only Hotel Piscis, the Plazamar Serenity Resort and in the Hotel Trópico Playa, as well as in all of Garden Hotels chain, Sol Hotels and IBEROSTAR in Mallorca, to mention only the most well known.


The most modern hotels in Mallorca

Mallorca is renovating its hotel base by forced changes. With a view to changing the type of tourism that comes to the island and orientate it towards a more quality traveller who appreciates nature and respects the islands and inhabitants. Many hotels have made a remarkable effort to convert their proposals into something unique , Where the guest experience goes beyond the destination and the hotel itself. Some of the more striking examples are the following.


IBEROSTAR Bahia de Palma.- Old Royal Cupid. Converted into an adults-only hotel with Nordic touches and a Mediterranean flair. The gastronomy and the sea are key in their concept of remodeling, with which they have achieved spaces full of charm like the roof overlooking the Playa de Palma and its chill out and lounge bar with a sophisticated atmosphere. Open all year.


Melià de Mar.– One of the jewels of the Melià group in Mallorca. It has become famous for its exceptional Sunday brunch overlooking the sea: in fact, breakfast practically on the sea. The wellness area and the new activities of its schedule that are oriented to beauty, health and rest are its strong points.


The Fergus Resort.– A hotel complex designed to compete with the traditional hotel industry in ​​Magaluf and provide the young traveller with friends or family a fun resort. Music, modern gastronomy, recreational areas, swimming pools, interior decoration … Everything looks like a state-of-the-art architectural studio.


Sol Katmandu Park.- One of the great attractions of Calvia: a hotel that has its own theme park. It is family friendly, cosy and very, very fun for those traveling with small children. The location is perfect also to enjoy the beach of Magaluf and Palmanova comfortably and in a safe environment. In this line you can also find the rest of hotels Sol House and Sol Beach House of Sol Hotels in Mallorca.


Protur Biomar Hotel & Spa.– Located in Sa Coma on the east coast of Mallorca, it has the largest wellness centre on the island. What’s more, it even has a children’s spa area. It is ideal for holidays and relaxing getaways. It takes pride in its gastronomy and the design of the rooms and common spaces.


Posada Terra Santa.-In the heart of the old town of Palma, capital of the Balearic Islands, this boutique hotel is and was one of the first to appear as a city hotel in Palma de Mallorca and provide the tourist with an experience beyond the sun and beach. With a Mediterranean style, noble and elegant, you sleep in a typical Mallorcan mansion, with its spectacular interior patio, beautiful decoration and attention to detail.


Garden Selection Hotel & Spa.- Garden Hotels is an excellent example of a medium-sized hotel chain that has made an incredible commitment to the quality of its establishments. During the last years it has invested heavily in the renovation of its hotels and concepts, creating hotels like this one in Playa de Muro, which has become one of the most complete and renowned in ​​the north of Mallorca.
