Madrid is the capital of Spain, a city with hidden magical corners and full of historical monuments, buildings and museums. It is a must visit to understand Spain, its culture and its lifestyle.

Madrid´s famed neighborhoods such as Las Letras, Salamanca, Malasaña or Chamberí are the perfect places to stay and enjoy the multiple options that this multicultural city has to offer.

Often, one of the most daunting tasks when traveling is choosing where you are going to stay at. Lucky for you, we have put together list of our 9 favorite hotels in Madrid, to cater to every taste!

 

 Gran Melia Palacio de Los Duques: 5* GL

This hotel opened about a year ago. The location is unbeatable and the views from its terrace are the best in the cityWe particularly like the sophisticated decoration and the stylish common areas. 

 

 

Gran Hotel Inglés: 5* GL

The original Gran Hotel Inglés was built in 1886 and after many decades of multiple uses.  The incredible building has totally been refurbished only twelve months ago to reopen with a new look but with the same halo and sophistication that was back in the golden XIX century. You will find it right in the heart of the Barrio de las Letras. This is without any doubt the most authentic neighborhood of Madrid for being the meeting point of “la crème de la crème” on the literary and artistic scene of Madrid.

 

NH Collection Casa Suecia: 5*

 We love this hotel because it has it all: comfort, style, good restaurant, nice terrace, friendly staff and an unbeatable location. Just around the corner from Gran Via on the edge with the Barrio de las Letras. We don’t mind sharing the secret with you but if you find the Hemingway Bar, please don’t tell anyone…

 

 

Only You Boutique Madrid : 5*

This hotel can be found on Barquillo Street, another key street to explore Madrid. Its smart, cool and chic design makes of this building the perfect boutique hotel for a honeymoon or a city break. You can have breakfast at any time of the day and the same applies to the check-in termswhatever time you arrive, you can be sure that your room will be available! Is it not handy for those early arrivals flights?

 

 

Hospes Puerta de Alcalá: 5

Just in front of the Retiro park and in the heart of the stylish Salamanca neighbourhood  you´ll find the Puerta de AlcaláIts decoration is the perfect balance between contemporary and classic style. It offers  stunning views over the Retiro Park and the Puerta de Alcala gate, one of the icons of the city. This hotel is probably one of our favourite of the Spanish Hospes boutique hotels. It’s difficult for us to choose as we love them all. If you travel with petsthey´ll be welcomed!

 

Icon Wipton: 4*

 Continuing our walk in the Salamanca neighbourhood you will be able to find the Icon Wilton, a luxurious and elegant hotel quite unique in the city of Madrid. We love its large and comfortable rooms and also the breakfast space and the restaurant. There are free Ipads for guests and free rental bikes

 

VP Jardín de Recoletos: 4*

This hotel is a very good option if you are searching for the right balance quality-price. It is located in the Salamanca neighborhood. We particularly like its courtyard, offering a  beautiful garden which creates the feeling of being in an oasis in the middle of the city. The rooms are large and luminous featuring a small kitchenette which might be very practical for those travelers choosing to stay in rather than having dinner out every night.

 

 

Radisson Blu Prado: 4*

 Even though we try to avoid big chains, we love this  Radisson hotel in Madrid. It has a boutique feel with only 60 bedrooms. It’located in a protected building just in front of the Prado Museum. For those art lovers travelers, this spot is definitely the best option! 

 

 

NH Alonso Martinez: 3*

Despite its 3 star category, Alonso Martinez Hotel surpasses our expectationsIt is located in a very stylish building of the residential area of Chamberí,  a very quiet but full of life district. The hotel is only at 15 minutes´ walk from Paseo del Prado and Gran Vía. The rooms are bright, decorated with neutral colors and spacious. Their breakfasts are one of the best in town! And for those who like sleeping in, on Sundays, you can check out until 15:00 pm!

 

 

Fitur is the International Tourism Fair, hosted in Madrid, Spain, every year towards the end of January.

This is our 5th year attending it and we consider that FITUR is an unmissable date on the calendar, a meeting point for professionals where to establish lines of action, strategies and business alliances to energize and promote the tourism industry in Spain.

Spain is a destination to further explore for those buyers that have already our country in their portfolio but a great discovery for those that are not selling it yet. Our task in Fitur is to build a strong relationship with those buyers we are already trading with but also to start dealing with those that are searching for a loyal expert partner who knows every single detail about creating unique experiences throughout Spain.

For 3 consecutive days (23-25 January) the Fair is purely focused on the trade sector. We have been meeting with suppliers and partners from all over Spain to help us growing our database and being able to offer new and exciting experiences for our discerning travelers. This year has been particularly interesting the presence of companies from Ronda where we already have a strong relationship but always willing to increase our expertise in that region which is one of our favourite in Andalucia.

During the weekend, the Fair is free open to the public. People interested in travelling within Spain or abroad are welcome to visit the stands and participate on the several shows that take place for the entire weekend.

Fitur is also a great opportunity to meet with international buyers. That’s why is so important for us to attend the B2B Workshop (business to business meetings), which is organized by Fitur itself. We attended about 15 meetings with TTOO and outbound agencies from USA, Canada, Australia, UK and India, which are our main English speaking markets.

We will be back next year again!

  

What if we imagined a classic Andalusian white town where tradition and avant-garde art coexisted? What if we added to the Arabic layout of its cobblestone streets, to its secluded squares and its colorful balconies adorned with flowers, dozens of works by contemporary artists from all corners of the planet? It turns out that this place exists, it is in the province of Malaga and has its own name: Genalguacil, known as “Pueblo museo”, which during the first half of August will host a new edition of its famous Art Encounters.

These meetings have managed to attract the attention of artists from all five continents, attracted by their exoticness, and even the New York Times saw fit to dedicate an extensive report in 2014. The dynamics are simple: the municipality of the locality provides maintenance and accommodation to the selected artists and in return, the creators leave their works as a legacy in the territory where they were made.

However, it is an event that has acquired a certain prestige, so it is not easy to opt for one of the places that are awarded in each call, which are carefully selected by different personalities from the art world. In fact, for this 2018 call, only ten of the 137 projects submitted from 12 different countries have been selected.
