Mini break in Madrid

A mini break in May...
Stayed: 3 nights

The occasion: My amazing boyfriend's 21st Birthday!

Where we stayed.

The suite was modern, stylish and comfortable. We were in the prime location to get around the city too. 
Located in: Gran Via 80/

Notes: The roof-top bar/Nice to meet you sky lounge is a must, with breathtaking views and tasty cocktails.

The view was exceptional and architecturally impressive.

I did a little bit of shopping for the sunshine. I'm in love with my Miu Miu sunnies- featured wearing in the first image.

On the first night, we chose delectable tapas, only a five or so minute walk away from the hotel. They have the best house white wine too.

  • Learn some Spanish before visiting, as the less touristy parts can prove some miss-communication.
  • Save, save, save. We had the most incredible time but the food, in particular, was quite pricey regardless of where you visit.

 The Palace is a must, with a picturesque walk around the gardens, stand out buildings, fountains and the perfect pit stops for food and drink.

Above is the Prado National museum, it contains floors and floors of stunning statues, paintings and trinkets. Voted one of the tops things to visit in Madrid.
Notes: It's paid entry of around 15 Euros each.
You could spend a whole afternoon here- perfect for art and history lovers!

We had the most marvellous time in Madrid, with the weather hot (although one night of heavy rain). You must visit Platea for food and drinks. This was one of my top memories here, with multiple floors of different cuisine, entertainment and atmosphere.

It's extremely romantic, with plenty to see and do. I'll definitely be re-visiting and would recommend a week here. The metro was the best way of hopping around the sites too.
