Stylish boutique digs with avant-garde design credentials in the heart of Madrid - includes breakfast and a lie-in

For all the urban glamour you can muster, this unpretentious three-star boutique property set in the heart of Madrid is perfect. But killer address aside, what really gives this place its edge are effortless cool interiors by designer Luis Delgado, the globally-sourced and customised furniture (much of which is for sale), and the 24-hour bar that’s attracts a rather chic clientele.

All of the uniquely-styled guest rooms and suites are welcoming spaces with carefully-chosen aesthetics, Smart TVs, and comfy beds layered with crisp white linens and heavenly Tempur mattresses. From the soft lighting to the bold decorative pieces, each shows off a flair for elegant yet up-to-date design. As a lovely extra, en-suite bathrooms come with a Jacuzzi or Thai stone bathtub for added wellness and relaxation.

Although there’s no restaurant, the Beauty Bar has become one of the city’s buzziest watering holes for its delicious wines, casual cocktails and refreshing beers. There’s also a round-the-clock reception desk run by charming staff, who will happily book your lunch and dinner reservations, as well as a list of in-room massage services on hand for a stress-free sojourn.


  • The super-central location, within walking distance of Madrid’s famous Gran Vía shopping street
  • Indulgent in-room spa treatments and services, including massages and baths with salts and rose petals
  • Staying in trendy guest rooms with lashings of boutique-chic décor and customised furniture
