18 Feb Our Favorite 9 Madrid Hotels
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!
This hotel opened about a year ago. The location is unbeatable and the views from its terrace are the best in the city. We particularly like the sophisticated decoration and the stylish common areas.
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.
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…
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 terms: whatever time you arrive, you can be sure that your room will be available! Is it not handy for those early arrivals flights?
Just in front of the Retiro park and in the heart of the stylish Salamanca neighbourhood you´ll find the Puerta de Alcalá. Its 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 pets, they´ll be welcomed!
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
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.
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’s located in a protected building just in front of the Prado Museum. For those art lovers travelers, this spot is definitely the best option!
Despite its 3 star category, Alonso Martinez Hotel surpasses our expectations. It 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 a 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!
