Palatial extravagance, avant-garde style and contemporary flair in the heart of cultural Madrid
City | City-break
A member of Leading Hotels of the World, this 19th century former palace counts the Royal Palace, Teatro Royal and Almudena Cathedral among its prestigious neighbours. And, from its historic garden setting to its panoramic rooftop views, it’s a haven of tranquility in the beating heart of the Spanish capital.
Step past the grand, Elizabethan-style exterior to find a blend of traditional opulence and cutting edge modernity, a contrast best seen in artworks that range from the boldly abstract to the classically renaissance. Meanwhile, rooms combine muted tones with more large-scale art, and clean lines with rich velvets and hanging drapes. There are all the usual state-of-the-art amenities too, with LCD TVs and Clarins bathroom products among the highlights. Book a room with Red Level service to benefit from a private reception, a lounge with an open bar, daily breakfast and use of an exclusive area of the hotel’s sun terrace.
With two cocktail bars, a tearoom and three restaurants, including the Dos Cielos whose menus are advised by the Michelin-starred Torres brothers, there’s much here for the epicurean to enjoy. The wonderfully modern Coroa Royal Gallery brings contemporary cocktails and modern tapas cookery to a spectacular outdoor setting in the sprawling gardens. Or, perhaps take a journey through the culinary traditions of Spain at the Montmartre Restaurant, all accompanied by one of the Spanish capital’s most impressive wine lists.
For guests looking to unwind, the stunning rooftop pool and Jacuzzi, along with their accompanying Royal Palace views, make for an ideal antidote to that rich array of doorstep cultural attractions and world-renowned shopping.
