Spending the day at the pool of a downtown hotel, afternoons on terraces with views and air-conditioned expos. At Mi Casa Inn we recommend the best plans and experiences to spend the summer in Madrid.
The heat wave has exceeded historical records and Madrid is on fire. Even so, there are many options to enjoy the city and spend the summer better.
1. First of all: water, water and more water
Do not forget to carry a small bottle of water with you at all times. It is recommended to drink between 2 and 3 liters of water a day. You don’t have to wait until you are thirsty, because it comes when you are already dehydrated. If you do not like water, alternate with fruit juices.
2. Day in luxury pools without spending a lot of money
There is no better plan than a day pass at the pool of a hotel in Madrid. It allows you to spend the day on the terrace and in most of them you have access to a hammock and towels. Some hotels include a welcome drink or snack. Tip: take the opportunity to spend the day in one of these pools during the week, the rates are much better.
At the H10 Puerta de Alcalá hotel you can enjoy an incredible Brunch, admire the best views of the Retiro Park and take a dip in the pool on the terrace.
In the heart of Madrid’s Gran Via, the pool terrace is large (in this respect it surpasses many), and offers great views of Madrid. It has more than 120 sunbeds and a snack bar to have a drink or a snack while you spend the day.
