This is not a family hotel. It is designed with couples in mind -- think mirrors over the beds, sex toys for sale, and hot tubs in some rooms. The property is only accessible by car and is situated in an industrial area with virtually nothing besides a gas station in the immediate vicinity. If the plan is to hole up for a night or a few, there is a large room service menu from which to order, but no on-site restaurant or other major amenities.
Zouk isn't the kind of place that fosters socialization among guests. There are no common areas and virtually no amenities to speak of outside the rooms. Guests go straight from the parking garage to their guest rooms. The idea here is to get to your room and get down to business, as evidenced by the mirrored ceilings and erotic products for sale.
Located on Madrid's Barcelona Road near Alcalá de Henares, the Zouk Hotel is in industrial area, with nothing around but a gas station and a warehouse. Having a car is a must if a guest wants to leave the property, but the point of a visit to Zouk Hotel is to stay in.
Given that the Zouk Hotel makes no bones about the fact that it's a place where people come to shack up, guests might be relieved -- rather than repulsed -- by the strong smell of disinfectants and cleaning products. Rooms have names like Tantra and Tango and come equipped with large beds, mirrored ceilings, and flat-screen TVs that offer adult channels. The most expensive rooms feature hot tubs, saunas, and small heated pools housed in pretty enclosed terraces with skylights. All rooms offer 24-hour room service -- and the option to purchase erotic toys.
Not much outside the rooms -- just a free basic breakfast
Zouk Hotel isn't a home base for exploring -- unless it's exploring your partner. Mirrored ceilings, large beds, an array of erotic products for sale, and 24-hour room service is how the hotel guarantees guests have everything they need for an exciting night in. A free continental breakfast with croissants, toast, juice, and coffee is provided.
