Madrid Hotels for Art Lovers

Madrid is famed for its art galleries and its beautiful architecture. If that’s your reason for visiting the city, you might enjoy staying in one of these hotels.

Urban Hotel Madrid
Carrera de San Jerónimo, 34 Madrid 28014

This is a 5 star hotel in the centre of the city. It’s perfectly located in the triangle between the artistic delights of the Museo del Prado, the Thyssen-Bornemisza Museum and the Queen Sofia Foundation. The building has a striking art-deco style and also houses its own art collection. It has original pieces of ancient Asian and Egyptian art as well as Chinese, Hindu and African pieces. Ceremonial sculptures from Papua New Guinea are on display, along with Ming Dynasty prints, bronze Osiris figures, semi-precious stones and portraits. Despite its historical associations, the guest rooms in this hotel are fully equipped with modern technology including wireless internet access and flat screen satellite TVs.

Petit Palace Art Gallery Madrid
Jorge Juan 17, Madrid 28001

This 4 star hotel is in a 19th century building, which was once an art gallery. It is also just a few steps away from the Paseo de Arte, which holds Madrid’s three most important museums. The hotel retains many original features, which contrast with the modern, minimalist style in the guest rooms and the avant-garde pieces of art around the building. The most impressive is in the centre of the lobby – a life-size silver bull, symbol of Spain. High tech double rooms come with a laptop computer and free internet access. They are also fitted with flat screen satellite TVs, hydroshowers and hydromassage saunas.

Gran Via, 11 Madrid 28013

This 4 star hotel was built in 1917 and is situated in an area in a cultural area of Madrid, full of cinemas, theatres and cafés. The Gran Via is a beautiful street with many other fabulous examples of early 20th century architecture. This hotel has grand original features such as coffered ceiling and colourful tiles. The guest rooms are painted in period shades of ochre, burgundy and orange, and decorated with inscriptions from famous works of literature. They all have full bathrooms, WiFi technology and plasma screen televisions. There is a cocktail and tapas bar where you can sample traditional Spanish cuisine.

And I've also received dozens of review copies at no charge that do not get reviewed, either because they are not worthy or because they don't meet the subject criteria for this column, or simply because I haven't gotten around to them yet, since I only review one book per month. I have far more books in my office than I will ever read, and the receipt of a free book does not affect my review.
