4.7 Orfila Hotel Madrid

Hotel Relais & Châteaux Orfila, Madrid


“The Orfila is a converted 19th-century palace. Close enough to the Castellana to feel the pulse of the city’s main artery, set back enough to sleep quietly and stroll along sedate side streets.”

4.2 Puerta America Madrid

Hotel Silken Puerta América, Madrid

Lonely Planet

“Give 22 of architecture’s most creative names (eg Zaha Hadid, Norman Foster, Ron Arad, David Chipperfield, Jean Nouvel) a floor each to design. The result is an extravagant pastiche of styles.”

4.7 Central Palace Madrid

Hostal Central Palace, Madrid

Lonely Planet

“Now here’s something special. The views alone would be reason enough to come to this hotel and definitely worth paying extra for – rooms with balconies look out over the Palacio Real and Plaza de Oriente.”

4.7 Catalonia Les Cortes Madrid

Hotel Catalonia Las Cortes, Madrid


“An elegant and ingeniously converted palace, Hotel Catalonia Las Cortes was once the residence of the Duke of Nobelejas. In some of the suites, guests will gaze up at frescoed ceilings.”

4.3 Room007 Ventura Hotel Madrid

Room007 Ventura Hostel, Madrid

The Guardian

“Many city hostels occupy top spots, have a strong design ethos and offer more services than five-star hotels – all for a fraction of the price. Among the best of the best: Room 007 in the Chueca, Sol and Ventura neighbourhoods of Madrid.”

4.5 The Principal Hotel Madrid

The Principal Hotel, Madrid

New York Times

“Combining comfort and style in the rooms with a prime address for business, culture and night life, the Principal has a lot going for it. For guests who like rubbing shoulders with a steady stream of Madrid’s creative class, just head up to the roof.”
