10 Best Hotels In Which to Sleep Like a Spanish Prince

Madrid is a city that always manages to please. So whether you’re looking to sleep in surroundings that exude traditional European elegance, are leaning towards Madrid’s newer options for luxury, or are even looking for a taste of the avant-garde without breaking the bank, you’re sure to find it here in Madrid.

While Madrid’s most historic choices for a great night’s sleep are concentrated in central, visitor friendly neighborhoods like Santa Ana and Retiro, if you’re looking for a more recently constructed hotel, you can have your choice of neighborhood. They can be found in the heart of Madrid as well as near the city’s business and transportation hubs like the Castellana, Avenida de America and the airport.

For a taste of history and luxury, check out the Hotel Ritz Madrid or the Westin Palace Madrid. Both were built in the early 1900’s and are located only a stone’s throw from the Prado Museum and other visitor favorites. When the weather’s warm, have breakfast in the Ritz’s garden – if you’re not having it in bed, I mean. 

Another fun choice is the ME Madrid Reina Victoria. The grand, historic building presides over night-time hotspot Santa Ana Square and the rooms are modern and beautiful. While you’re at it, have a drink at the rooftop bar with a view. Although if you’re on a budget for this trip and you’re not prepared to forsake personality or standards, then Hostal Santo Domingo is more likely your place.
