The 18th-century façade opens up into a small hall, dominated by a large chandelier. Five marble steps lead into a more private area, with gilded mirrors, orchids, and two crimson zebra-print chairs. Two lifts lead up to reception on the second floor. Leisure travelers, mainly couples, choose this family-run hotel for its personalized atmosphere and its location in the shopping and sightseeing district.
Amenity highlights: The lobby, with its marble floor and distinctive crimson zebra patterned or aubergine leather sofas set around glass and bronze tables, has plenty of space for relaxing and enjoying bar snacks, freshly squeezed orange juice, cocktails, and coffee.
Insider tip: Shoppers can explore the cavernous high-street fashion store Zara just opposite the hotel or head for one of Madrid’s largest department tores, El Corte Ingles, a three-minute walk away at the Puerto del Sol.

Lobby restaurant and bar – An extension of the lobby lounge, the 35-cover restaurant overlooks the Grand Via and is decorated with delicate pink walls, draped white curtains, a pale marble floor, and maroon table cloths. A large painting of Louis XIV watches over the guests – during their breakfast buffet, and later for their a la carte lunch and dinner. The cuisine is Spanish Mediterranean, with dishes such as salmon carpaccio and roast veal. Snacks, cocktails, coffee, and soft drinks are available from the bar throughout the day and late into the evening. Guests can sit at the stools lining the bar or more comfortably in the lobby area.
