I have lived in Madrid for two years now and often go to the bar in this hotel which is a stunning rooftop bar overlooking Plaza Santa Ana. It is a superb bar with stunning views over the city and a very pleasant ambience which in my view makes a big difference. For example, if you have ever been to cocktail bars on the front of Puerto Banus for example, you will be familiar with the appalling clientel is these "exclusive" places. Not so here. A very relaxed and casual atmosphere with not a single drunk person anywhere in sight. However, the reason for that is the fact that during the summer months you will be waiting up to an hour to be served at the bar. It is a small bar and is mobbed at night. You will also have to queue up for 20 minutes to get in as the only way to get to the bar is via a small lift so a queue builds up fast. At weekends you´ll pay 15 euros to get in but that includes a free cocktail. You´ll then get to the bar and join a huge queue for 40 minutes before getting served. It is more than likely that the only drink you´ll have will be your free one as you really won´t be bothered to queue up again. If you do want more, then you´re looking at 15 euros a drink, but the cocktails are of the highest order. All in all, you have to go here.
