    4. Ernest escape

    Meliá Hotels has launched a new Madrid property in the former home of Ernest Hemingway. Built in 1956 and opened by the Swedish royal family, it became the Scandinavian country's enclave in Madrid, before the peripatetic writer moved in. Today, the Inside Suecia contains 127 minimalist rooms, a Dado Deli, rooftop pool and bar.
