If you’re looking for a hotel in an upscale residential neighborhood, housed in a beautifully restored mansion from the late-1800’s, then look no further than the Hospes Puerta de Alcalá Madrid.
This 5-star boutique hotel is located directly opposite the majestic Retiro Park, and overlooks the beautiful Puerta de Alcalá located in the center of the Plaza de la Independencia. The hotel is ideally located adjacent to the city’s swankiest residential neighborhood (Barrio Salamanca) and upscale shopping street (Calle Serrano) , and is also just a short walk from the Prado Museum and the National Archaeological Museum. The city’s historic city center, Puerta del Sol and Royal Palace are all within walking distance (about a 20 minute walk), and can also be easily accessed via a short taxi or metro ride.
As you enter the hotel you will feel as though you have stepped into a stately private home. The 41 guest rooms have been refurbished, and while they retain the architectural details of a mansion built in 1883, they have been completely updated with a soothing color palette and modern amenities, including large flat panel TVs, and open plan bathrooms. There are Dreamer rooms, larger Deluxe rooms, and Deluxe Alcalá rooms, with balconies facing the Puerta Alcalá. The Junior Suites are duplexes, with most of them located on the hotel’s top floor. They have a living room with balconies overlooking the Puerta Alcalá on the lower level, and the bedroom located on the upper level; top floor Junior Suites have bedrooms with sloping ceilings and skylights. The Grande Suite (only one of this type) is located on the second floor and has two bedrooms, each with its own bathroom ensuite, a separate living room, and balconies overlooking the Puerta Alcalá.
