I came across to one situation, I needed to go to Madrid to close some deals on client’s meetings and do it so in a city like Madrid is not an easy task. Beautiful indeed, its architecture style, its monuments and also thousands of bars and restaurants makes Madrid a wonderful place to do business but as cosmopolitan city and the traffic can be difficult sometimes to move along and of course you need to find a place to stay near the city centre and with all transport in your hands so what else can be good than staying on a business hotel at the Madrid’s gate?
So I searched on Google “business hotel in Madrid” and found many but the one who catch my attention was the EXE Moncloa. The localization on Calle Alcipestre made it wonderful to plan my meeting’s schedule and with so many transports at the door I had an easy task to look for the best solutions to never get late on my meetings.
So I decided to go ahead with the EXE Moncloa and then when I arrived the first thing I liked was the friendly and cordial treatment I got from the two receptionists who provide me all the information and assistance I needed about the services and areas. The reception is simple but modern, straight lines and executive colours: black and wood, like entering on a big corporation.
So I went up to my room and well everything was excellent, the decoration of the corridors and entryways is very smart, lighting and mix of colours between black, gray, and brown is elegant and very equilibrated. Then I entered to my room and well, was fantastic, continuing the same line of decoration, but instead, a white wall room with straight lined set of furnishes that were very comfortable and a desk that provide me a good space to put my laptop and do some work. The bathroom was impeccable, with all the accessories you need to stay relax.
So seeing that everything was in place I took a moment to visit the lobby, a beautiful decorated room, not a big one, but wonderful to read the news or even invite a client to have an informal meeting with you. The place was well decorated and with good illumination and very comfortable, a good place to relax.
I didn’t visit the gym because have not time for it, neither the pool on the roof but I visited the restaurant buffet which only serves breakfast, a good and delicious meal with Spanish characteristic food and loved it! I was not on the hotel by the time of lunch but at dinner I needed to look for a place and well, is just turning to your right and you have a “food market” with a bars and different kind of food with a wide range of possibilities and I understood why the hotel didn’t have dinner, I didn’t need it with such a good restaurants in hands.
So my conclusions is that the EXE Moncloa is a Hotel that provides you the comfort you need to work abroad, in a big city like Madrid that’s essential and the primal factor is its localization and the tranquillity you have in the hotel to think, to rest, to plan, for that reason I will recommend the EXE if you plan to do a business trip to Madrid. If you’re going just for pleasure, well its good and comfortable but maybe you should look for another type of hotel if you’re looking for leisure.
