Staying at Grey Hotel Kopaonik

Grey Hotel Kopaonik – Getting There

My experience at Grey Hotel Kopaonik happened this winter in the month of December. I decided to go for a sky trip with a group of friends. It was a group of six people in total. The destination was the place anyone wanted to be at in Serbia’s mountains: the region called Kopaonik. 

I wasn’t the one to choose the Grey Hotel Kopaonik. One of our friends made the reservation and told us he knew the hotel from a previous trip. Since this was a last moment decision, we did not investigate potential hotels and went with our friend’s recommendation. 

Grey Hotel Kopaonik – hotel description

Grey Hotel is a small boutique type of hotel in the mountain area named Kopaonik. The hotel has a small number of rooms: 13. First impression arriving at the front desk: the place is small and it has no parking. Well, those were false assumptions. We did discover they had a covered parking space, a proper garage, which proved excellent for the cars because of the freezing temperatures. 

Regarding the size of the hotel, well size is not everything after all. It is a small sized hotel, but the spaces are very nicely compartmented. True the reception area is small, but the staff had huge smiles and they welcomed us with a good English and a friendly attitude. 

The rooms are excellently decorated and the materials, textures, colors and design speak good quality. 

The food and drinks

The restaurant of the Grey Hotel Kopaonik had excellent views from two sides towards the ski slopes.  

The Grey Hotel Kopaonik bar and coffee shop had a central piece of decoration: a huge fireplaces. I can’t emphases enough the enthusiasm of all the ladies tourists taking selfies and sharing that piece of decoration on social media. 

The exterior terrace wasn’t ready when we got there. The staff was still working on cleaning all the snow away and preparing the exterior furniture. 

The Social Media Channels

The social media channels speak about the Kopaonik region more than they speak about the Grey Hotel. It seems that the hotel didn’t do anything on social media to promote their brand. Or, at least we did not find anything online on instagram, Pinterest, Facebook or Youtube.

Grey Hotel Kopaonik proved to be an excellent choice for our group. We had a wonderful time outside in the snow. The boys got to ski and the girls did some wonderful selfies around the bar and coffee shop area. We declared it a satisfying trip. We kindly recommended to anyone traveling to Kopaonik. It offers intimacy, fast access to the ski slopes, beautiful interior design, tasty food and superb views.

Me Madrid Reina Victoria – Getting There

 This hotel is in the center of Madrid at walkable distance of major tourist objectives. There are so many ways you can get to the hotel in case you arrive to Madrid by plane. This time, we took a taxi from the airport and it was around 30 minutes of distance and we paid 40 EUR. Other options are taking a bus, the subway, a shuttle or an Uber depending on your budget and patience ;).

Exact address: Plaza de Santa Ana, 14 (1,546.61 mi), Madrid, Spain 28012.

Me Madrid Reina Victoria – Hotel Description

The hotel ME by Melia is surrounded by the main theaters, boutiques and bars. It is the perfect location for the young tourist who feel energized and want to discover both day and night life of Madrid.

Radio ME Madrid Rooftop Bar

The spectacular panoramic view of the city which guests can enjoy from the rooftop makes this hotel one of a kind. I heard people mentioning the rooftop when I had breakfast. I did not know about that amazing features which brings a plus of fun to the hotel. Radio ME Madrid Rooftop Bar is a beautifully designed setting at the last floor of the hotel. Getting up there I did not expect to discover more than a normal terrace.

To my surprise, the hotel has set up a wonderful place to spend an afternoon or the evening. It has a feeling of a lounge during the afternoon. Guests can serve tea, cocktails or enjoy a delicious desert. It was an excellent night under the stars. Cool music, well-dressed happy people around and a wide variety of cocktails to choose from.

The food and drinks @ Me by Melia

ME’s restaurant Ana La Santa offers delicious food and beautiful plating. All dishes are designed to be instagramed (or so it felt). You can find there the tapas or paella dishes, also you can have the fresh salads, meet and fish. A menu to satisfy any nationality. It’s wise to make a reservation, because the restaurant is opened to people from the city as well as to the hotel’s guests. It is easy to understand why; the food and ambiance are spectacular. The setting is simple, chic and minimalist, it is more about the vibe of Ana La Santa, than the fancy furniture. It allows people to be the center of attention, it is subtle and comfortable.

The social media channels

As any hotel, which cares about building a brand online, ME by Melia has an Instagram account where you can better understand the young, cool, artsy vibe of the hotel and its guests. They have a Facebook page with tons of uploaded pictures and videos, which makes it easier for their guests to discover the place even before arriving.

The surprise was to discover that ME by Melia also has a wonderful YouTube channel. As a digital marketer, I am always interested in the level of work the hotel does to promote itself. Well, let me just say that ME by Melia is doing an excellent work. I have no idea if they have a team in house or they outsourced the marketing task, but it looks fantastic. They upload on YouTube presentation videos,and rooftop parties and many other great clips with nice music on the background.
