Overview This boutique hotel is just minutes’ walk from all the best features of Madrid – tapas joints and cheap wine bars line the streets surrounding it and, of course, the Museo del Prado, which has one of the biggest collections of European art in the world, is over the road.

The hotel has just 54 rooms, so there’s a cosy feel and plenty of character, managing to avoid feeling like an international chain altogether.

Creative touches such as the mini art gallery in the foyer give the place an artsy, sophisticated atmosphere.

Wow factor In the basement is a giant hot tub, which comes complete with multicoloured lights and huge rain showers.

The water isn’t as hot as you’d expect but it’s still a very soothing place to chill out. 

Rooms Smart and spacious, many with huge double windows that open out onto traditional Juliet balconies.

Oversized prints of the city decorate the walls and cupboards.

Bill please Standard rooms from £103pn.
