Bottom Line

Hotel Silken Puerta America is known for its over-the-top design, from the colorful facade of the hotel to the rooms. Each of the 12 floors was executed by a different designer, and range from futuristic, space-like decor to sexy style with levitating beds and bold colors. This funky hotel offers free Wi-Fi and a small indoor pool. Hotel features include a hip on-site restaurant and a top floor bar with expansive views. While the location is great for business travelers -- less than 10 minutes from the airport -- leisure travelers might prefer to stay closer to the city center where famous sights are within walking distance.

Oyster Hotel Review

 Location

On Avenida de America, less than 10 minutes from the airport -- but far from the tourist sights

Hotel Silken is located on the southern border of Prosperidad, a primarily residential, working-class neighborhood just outside the city center (main attractions can be reached via public transport). It was developed in the 19th century in the hopes of being a greener, safer alternative for the working class. While part of the area is modern and shows some signs of gentrification, it has a strong local flavor, with small businesses, cafes and restaurants, and no major tourist attractions nearby. The hotel is located on the busy Avenida de America, which experiences lots of traffic during rush hour.

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.

  • 9-minute drive to Madrid-Barajas International Airport
  • 20-minute walk to the Lazaro Galdiano Museum, the famous writer's mansion
  • 9-minute drive, or 29-minute subway ride, to Retiro Park
  • 10-minute drive, or 24-minute subway ride, to the Plaza de la Cibeles fountain
  • 10-minute drive, or 32-minute subway ride, to Cason del Buen Retiro, a royal museum and gardens
  • 11-minute drive, or 23-minute subway ride, to the National Archaeological Museum
  • 12-minute drive, or 18-minute subway ride, to the Wax Museum
  • 12-minute drive, or 29-minute subway ride, to the Prado museum
