The end of January means it’s the Mrs’ birthday and every birthday whether it’s hers or mine we make sure we go abroad and visit a new city. The destination of choice this time? Spain (Madrid to be precise). Why the capital? Because we found a sweet deal for 3 days at the ME hotel bang in the middle of the city. I know Spain well. I’ve been Ibiza, Barcelona and Madrid once before but for just a day with adidas. This time I wanted to do some more exploring.
The ME hotel is amazing. I’ve been to the one in London numerous times because they have loads of fashion events there so I knew the one in Madrid would be nice too and it didn’t disappoint. The food, architecture and shops in Madrid are top draw. Unfortunately the weather wasn’t great which is normal for January in Spain but it was a real bomber because when I last visited 2 years ago it was 38 degrees (it was August to be fair).

we dined at a few places including Cafe & Tapas, the ME Hotel’s own restaurant but one of the stand out’s was actually a fast food joint called Steak-n-Shake (think of Shake Shack with better milkshakes). We did a bit of shopping on Gran Via which is like the Oxford Street of Madrid and even rode the Metro (the tube). All in all it was a great trip and I would recommend it to anyone who wants a quick, cheap city break.
