It seems every hotel in Madrid has a history, and the ME Madrid Reina Victoria is no exception. The property, built in 1923, has seen incarnations as a bullfighters den and a haute-couture hangout, before being snapped up by the Sol Melia group and made into one a ME, the chain’s superbrand of nightlife-centric fun.

Hot young El Bulli-trained chef Jaime Renedo presides over the ME Restaurant, dishing out popular fusion food, whilst a more casual scene takes place at the all-day Ana La Santa and the permanently packed penthouse bar The Roof is the result of American nightclub impresario Rande Gerber.

Luckily, rooms are less post-party crash pads rather than super-sleek spaces with a masculine edge and more technology than there are remotes for. Black robes and throws, hard edges and purple lighting mean frou-frou fanciers may be distinctly uncomfortable – though with the requisite 300 thread-count sheets in situ – there’s no pleasing some people.

Check into one of the suites on The Level for a new, ahem, level of luxury and your own private lounge and VIP managers.

18.5 of 20. Actually, there could have been more — this was very nearly a Hard Rock, but the deal never quite took. In the end it’s more refined than the picture that name might conjure, but with the emphasis still pretty clearly on nightlife; it’s a member of the Sol Meliá group, with a lively tapas restaurant and cocktail lounge on the ground floor, and a rooftop bar impresario’d by the American nightclub maven Rande Gerber.
