In the fashionable Salamanca district
Gran Hotel Velazquez is located on a wide, tree-lined street in the fashionable Salamanca district. Salamanca, the most affluent area in the city center, boasts top-notch boutiques, delicious restaurants, and some beautiful mansions. It is also home to traditional markets as well as the U.S. embassy and a small business district.
The capital of Spain is a vibrant, multicultural city located right in the center of the country. The Cuatro Torres business area's additions to the city skyline (four sleek towers, including a hotel and corporate offices) give an idea of what Madrid is rapidly becoming: a sophisticated, cosmopolitan city -- albeit one that preserves its century-old traditions.
