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 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.
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.
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.
ME Madrid Hotel

ME Madrid Hotel Rating: 4.0 Pearls

Location is definitely a big draw for the ME Madrid -- it's in Plaza de Santa Ana, the heart of the city's basically everything (eating, shopping, clubbing). But there's more to this hotel than its whereabouts. It also features some uber cool features -- 192 stylish contemporary rooms with upscale amenities, a rooftop bar with gorgeous views, a high-end spa and fitness center (next door), sexy and sleek design, a trendy restaurant and bar, and an undeniably hip clientele.
Hotel Orfila

Hotel Orfila Rating: 4.0 Pearls

A 19th-century mansion was renovated in 1999 to create the 32-room Hotel Orfila. This historic, traditional hotel has a beautiful marble lobby and restaurant, and rooms are filled with genuine antique furniture. Each room has unique decor, but share a similar style of soft colors, floral patterns, and dark wood accents (though in certain rooms the effect is frumpy rather than charming). Beyond space and an old-world ambiance, guests can expect solid service at this boutique property. There is also a lovely outdoor patio surrounded by greenery. Charm and location keep guests returning -- the hotel is on an attractive tree-lined street a short walk from numerous restaurants and shops.
NH Abascal

NH Abascal Rating: 3.5 Pearls

This upper-middle-range hotel caters to business travelers with a small (but dated) fitness center, a solid breakfast buffet, meeting rooms, and a convenient location near the financial district and public transportation. All rooms have hardwood floors, work desks with comfortable chairs, and stocked minibars, but flat-screen TVs are tiny and there’s a pesky fee for Wi-Fi. Premium Rooms feature more space; great extras such as Hi-Fi sound systems, Fagor coffeemakers, and separate walk-in showers and tubs; and private terraces. The neighborhood is known for its nightlife, varied dining options, and easy access to the historic center and business areas, but there are few tourist attractions nearby, so those who want to explore the city on foot might want to stay closer to Sol and Gran Via.
