Casa de Madrid
If you don't like staying in the usual characterless hotels, the unique Casa de Madrid, with its old-world charm and eclectic atmosphere is for you. Facing the Royal Opera right in downtown Madrid, its location cannot be faulted, being within walking distance of key sights like the Royal Palace, Plaza Mayor and Prado Museum. Taking up the second floor of a protected 18th-century building, with only seven rooms, staying here is like living in the townhouse of an old, wealthy relative, replete with housekeeping services. Ring the bell at the unobtrusive entrance on the ground floor for entry and luggage assistance. Inside, a resplendent palatial feel permeates throughout, where you'll find old tapestries, paintings and antiques framed by stuccoed walls and frescoes. Each en-suite room has a different theme with elegant, evocative furnishings and decor. Soak in the old-style ambience with drinks from the lounge bar or with a book from the library.
