A striking hotel geared towards business travelers
The hotel occupies the first 31 floors of a sleek skyscraper located in what used to be the training grounds of the Real Madrid soccer team. It is the third tallest building in Spain and one of the most recognizable landmarks in Madrid. The lobby is a striking, bright space decorated in silver and golden tones with lots of wood accents and impressive two-story windows. Wood-paneled hallways have dim lighting and carpeting that muffles the sound of steps. One of the best features of the hotel is its great views: the 30th-floor restaurant, spa, fitness center, and even the meeting rooms have striking views over Madrid. With the many business travelers, there is a lively lobby bar scene.
In the financial district, a 30-minute metro ride from Madrid's main attractions
This property is located in the Cuatro Torres Business Area, the newest part of Madrid’s financial district. It offers easy access to Chamartin (Madrid’s main train station), the airport, and corporate offices -- but its situation in northern Madrid is less convenient for those looking to explore the main attractions. Plaza de Castilla, a major public transportation hub, is within a 10-minute walk from the hotel, and offers easy access to many buses and three metro lines. The historic center of Madrid is a 30-minute metro ride from the hotel.
Contemporary decor, high-end amenities, and great views
The hotel offers five room types, all of which are spacious, soundproofed, contemporary, and luxurious. They feature high-end amenities such as LCD TVs, domotic lighting systems, pillow menus, brand-name minibar items, and free Wi-Fi. All rooms have floor-to-ceiling, wall-to-wall windows that let in tons of light and provide great views, especially from the ten top floors and from rooms with northern orientation. Bathrooms are probably the highlight here, with bold dark design, separate shower and tub, radiant floor heating, and an open design that allows guests to enjoy the views from the tub. Wooden screens can be closed for added privacy. Suites have separate living and dressing rooms, and in the case of Executive Suites, a work area and a dining room. Smoking rooms are available on request.
A 30th-floor Mediterranean restaurant, a high-end spa, and meeting rooms
The Eurostars offers a wide array of great services including babysitting, room service, valet and self-parking, and free Wi-Fi. Guests staying in Executive Suites can request private transportation to the airport or to Atocha train station at no extra charge. For a fee, guests can access the spa, a relaxing, luxurious space offering signature treatments, massages, facials, and a water therapy circuit. The fitness center offers expansive views, up-to-date equipment, and personal trainers on request. Volvoreta is the hotel’s stunning 30th-floor restaurant, featuring striking black-and-white decor, a seasonal Mediterranean menu, and panoramic views. The lobby bar is a lively spot for after-work drinks or a night cap. It features outdoor seating during the warmer months and live music on weekends. There are 22 bright, high-tech meeting rooms, including a ballroom with panoramic views.
The Eurostars Madrid Tower has sophisticated design, an upscale 30th-floor restaurant, panoramic views, and a high-end spa. Its contemporary 473 rooms feature all the amenities expected of a five-pearl property -- pillow menus, brand-name minibar items, soundproofing, and LCD TVs -- plus a few extras, including radiant heating in the bathrooms, floor-to-ceiling windows, and free Wi-Fi. Attentive service and reasonable rates don’t hurt either. But location in the city’s financial district, far from the main sights, is more convenient for business travelers than tourists.
