Hotel Villa Real

Hotel Villa Real Rating: 5.0 Pearls

The 115-room Hotel Villa Real boasts a great, central location just a few blocks from Sol and many major attractions. The hotel is a solid option for tourists -- and particularly families. Not only does it have hip restaurant that provides a kids menu, it also offer rooms with layouts convenient for families, and has numerous connecting rooms. The rooms, however, aren't as impressive as one may expect from a luxury hotel. They have eclectic style that blends modern and antique pieces, but most have two beds pushed together with thin comforters rather than duvets, and the furniture shows wear. Rooms do have flat-screen TVs and Wi-Fi access (the first hour is free). Hotel Villa Real also has a small on-site fitness center and business center, but those looking for a few more amenities (such as a pool and more dining options) may consider the nearby sister hotel, Hotel Urban.
Hotel Unico

Hotel Unico Rating: 5.0 Pearls

A luxury boutique hotel in the well-heeled Salamanca neighborhood, the Hotel Unico is one of Madrid's most refined and exclusive stays. The unique and modern design of the hotel stands out with colorful art pieces, exquisite and one-of-a-kind marble tile, and elegant contemporary furniture. Rooms have Jatoba wood floors, high ceilings, large windows, iPod docks, and luxurious marble bathrooms -- though some get a little street noise. The hotel's restaurant, Ramon Freixa Madrid, is a local highlight, a Michelin-starred institution with an outdoor terrace in warmer months. There's also a state-of-the-art fitness center, wellness center with massages and beauty treatments, library outfitted with art books, and perks like iPads, laptops, personal trainers, and personal shoppers by request. There’s free Wi-Fi throughout the hotel, and free breakfast and parking are included in certain packages.
Hotel Wellington

Hotel Wellington Rating: 4.5 Pearls

Hotel Wellington is a classically beautiful, historic hotel in Salamanca, just a short walk from the famous Retiro Park. The grand lobby has a stately vibe, with crystal chandeliers, velvet furniture, and high ceilings, and the look continues throughout the hotel -- though it's a bit simpler in the 255 rooms. Rooms have small flat-screen TVs, iPod docks, and free Wi-Fi, but standard rooms are a bit small and some feature two beds pushed together -- which is common in Madrid, but not what one would expect at a luxury hotel. Like a luxury hotel, however, Hotel Wellington features a long list of amenities: a 24-hour business center, well-equipped fitness center, spa with numerous features, seasonal outdoor pool, and seven dining options, one of which is a Michelin-starred Japanese restaurant. Plus, the hotel's rich history is impressive; after all, it has hosted the likes of Gene Kelly and Ernest Hemingway.
NH Palacio De Tepa

NH Palacio De Tepa Rating: 4.5 Pearls

Though the 85-room NH Palacio is housed in an 18-century building, it has a hip, modern vibe throughout. It is arguably the chicest hotel in the NH brand, with gorgeous rooms, a funky tapas bar, and on-site amenities such as a well-equipped business center and a small fitness center. Even standard rooms are large and feature up-to-date amenities such as flat-screen TVs, iPod docks, and free Wi-Fi. The design is modern with simple lines, beige furniture, pops of color, and hardwood floors. Though the hotel does not have a full spa (few hotels in Madrid do), it does offer a tranquil spot for massages. The convenient location -- within walking distance of the Atocha train station and numerous sights -- is also a draw.
Gran Melia Fenix

Gran Melia Fenix Rating: 4.5 Pearls

The historic Gran Melia Fenix has attracted personalities such as The Beatles, Bill Clinton, Queen Noor of Jordan, and Cary Grant since the 1950s. It's one of the top hotels in Madrid, featuring a grand lobby with an impressive stained-glass dome and chandeliers; tasteful, classic decor throughout; a fine dining restaurant; and upscale services such as butlers for every room category. An executive level offers wonderful extras such as a private rooftop terrace and daily hors d’oeuvres. Elegant rooms have upholstered walls, Bang & Olufsen flat-screen TVs, well-stocked minibars, and pillow menus. But bathrooms can feel a tad underwhelming for a property in this price range, with mostly shower/tub combos in lower-level rooms. There’s a classy cocktail bar popular with businessmen, but the hotel lacks a spa and a fitness center.
Hospes Madrid

Hospes Madrid Rating: 4.5 Pearls

Ideally located in the heart of Madrid across from the Parque del Retiro, the luxury boutique hotel Hospes Madrid is a high-design haven within walking distance of attractions, public transport, restaurants, and high-end shops. Spacious rooms follow the hotel’s theme of modern-vintage, with velvets, metallics, and soothing colors blending harmoniously. Large bathrooms are decked out in elegant marble tile-work, deep soaking tubs, and walk-in showers, although the lack of proper doors reduces privacy in a way that can be a turn-off for some. Outside the rooms, the hotel is equally luxurious, with a full-service spa with a hammam and pool, an award-winning restaurant/bar with outdoor seating, and bicycles to borrow. The over-the-top concierge services are a highlight, and the 24-hour room service and front desk are extra perks. On-site parking and shuttles cost fees.
The Westin Palace, Madrid

The Westin Palace, Madrid Rating: 4.5 Pearls

The 467-room Westin Palace is one of the top hotels in Madrid, and is housed in a gorgeous historic building that was commissioned by the king in 1912. Elegant, classic decor is found throughout the hotel; though standard Deluxe Rooms aren't as luxurious as one may expect from such an iconic hotel, they are attractive and feature antique furniture, a largely white color scheme, and spacious marble bathrooms with separate showers and soaking tubs. The Westin offers almost all of the conveniences of a luxury hotel: gorgeous meeting rooms, two gourmet restaurants, a 24-hour fitness center, even a Starbucks. However, the "spa" is really more of a barber shop, and there is no pool. Overall, the Westin is a great (if expensive) option, with a fabulous location in the heart of the city.
Hotel De Las Letras

Hotel De Las Letras Rating: 4.0 Pearls

Located directly on Madrid's bustling main Gran Via avenue, the trendy and colorful Hotel De Las Letras is within walking distance of both public transit and many of the city's top sights, but the bustling road's noise and crowds aren't for everyone. The four-pearl hotel’s hip, vintage-inspired design extends from the common areas to the rooms, and there’s a fun yet homey atmosphere throughout. The colorful rooms are large and bright, with beautiful wood floors, big windows, and high ceilings; several rooms even have big balconies and private hot tubs. A rooftop terrace is home to a bar with rooftop views; the two downstairs eateries are lively and trendy, popular with locals and guests, alike. The front desk, fitness center, and business center are all available 24-hours a day, and airport transportation can be arranged for a fee. Expect to pay extra for breakfast.
Innside Madrid Luchana

Innside Madrid Luchana Rating: 4.0 Pearls

This 43-room upscale boutique offers a stylish stay in residential Chamberí neighborhood. Rooms feature minimalist design, LCD TVs, iPod docks, and spacious bathrooms with rain showers and heated towel racks. The hotel is light on features, as there is only a solid restaurant, a meeting room, and breakfast buffet every morning. But the metro is right outside the front door, and there are tons of restaurants, bars and shops within a few blocks. Freebies such as Wi-Fi and non-alcoholic minibar items don’t hurt either.
Vincci Capitol Hotel

Vincci Capitol Hotel Rating: 4.0 Pearls

This upscale, 143-room Art Deco hotel is in one of Madrid's most recognizable buildings, built in 1933, shaped like the bow of a ship, topped with the iconic Schweppes sign that dominates the city skyline. Decor in rooms and common spaces maintains the Art Deco aesthetic, though some guests report the occasional maintenance issue in the rooms. The location is ideal for sightseeing and experiencing the city's vibrant nightlife. The Vincci Capitol shares the building with a bona fide movie palace, and works hard to give guests the movie star experience.
