Melia Castilla Hotel & Convention Centre
The Meliá Castilla Hotel & Convention Centre, is considered one of the most emblematic hotels in Madrid, with an appealing blend of perfectly balanced classic and contemporary styles, where peace and urban life are accomplices to the delight of our guests.
The Hotel is strategically located in the city centre’s business district of Castellana, which is the business heart of Madrid and house to the main companies based in the capital. The Castellana is also the main and largest Avenue in Madrid, crossing the city from north to south and connecting the Hotel to almost anywhere within just a few minutes’ drive. You could be in the historical city centre in 10 minutes, shopping district of Salamanca in 5 minutes, Real Madrid’s Santiago Bernabeu Football Stadium within walking distance and most important, Barajas International Airport and IFEMA exhibition centre (both within 15 minutes’ drive from Hotel). The Castellana area represents a comfortable environment where business flourish, away from the touristic buzz but boosted with its lively commercial streets, popular gastronomic restaurants and convenient public facilities keeping the district in constant movement throughout the day.
Our nice property becomes the largest hotel in Madrid, providing a total of 909 rooms including 17 suites distributed on fifteen floors with a full range of services and facilities to meet our guest’s needs, where comfort and silence are a priority in all our rooms.
Following a millionaire investment in the property, the Hotel is in the process of refurbishing all its guestrooms (with over 65% of the inventory already renewed), Convention Centre and common areas in a huge project for becoming a brand new product by end of 2021
The Hotel also features the largest executive club lounge in Madrid, which has been specially designed for our corporate accounts and VIP guests. Branded as THE LEVEL, it offers personalized service in exclusive surroundings, where we take care of every detail of the guests’ stay with a perfect combination of services especially tailored made for them, from their arrival at the private reception to a private breakfast room, free drinks and aperitifs, lounge area with Spanish and international newspapers.
Gastronomy does also play a very important part in the Hotel; offering extensive dining options based on quality and natural products. Our group’s menus are prepared freshly every day with careful presentation and served professionally to ensure you enjoy the finest cuisine, covering any special dietary requirements as well as allergies and food restrictions. And If you want to enjoy food after a busy event’s day, our signature L’Albufera Restaurant (specialized in paellas and Mediterranean food) and Pelicano Restaurant (cocktail bar and international restaurant) will be the best places to be.
Last but not least, Convention Centre represents one of the top spaces you will find in Madrid for your MICE events. With more than 7,000 sqm of meeting space and a total of 33 meeting rooms with capacities ranging from 8 to 550 people including a fully equipped state of the art Auditorium, the meeting areas become one of the largest and most versatile convention centre in Europe housing some major corporate conferences, medical congresses, product launches, international economic and financial forums, pharmaceutical product launches, automotive events, product tradeshows, IT conferences, annual corporate kick-offs, fashion shows, and even serving as headquarters hotel for the some of the major internationally congresses taking place in Madrid.
This year Melia Castilla Hotel & Convention Centre is turning 50. But we have no time for middle-age crisis as we will have a brand new Hotel by 2021. So ask for your appointment and I will introduce you to our new “baby”. Can’t wait to celebrate our anniversary with you at the M&IT Agency Challenge!
