"The location was perfect. It was a great value per night. Loved the decoration in the lobby and in the hallways. Very clean. Rooms are a little on the smaller size, but we weren't in the room much so we didn't need it to be any bigger."

Opened in 2017, The Walt Madrid is a stylish 4-star hotel in the heart of Spain's vibrant capital. The property is 150 metres from the world-famous Gran Via -- "the grand boulevard lined with towering belle-époque facades that climbs up through the centre of Madrid" (Lonely Planet).

The hotel's prime location means it is within walking distance of many of Madrid's most famous sites. The Reina Sofia Museum, where you can admire Picasso's "Guernica," is less than 25 minutes' walk away, while the Thyssen-Bornemisza Museum and the Prado Museum -- "one of the greatest museums in the world" (The Daily Telegraph) -- are both less than 20 minutes' walk away.

Retiro Park, Madrid's main park with a boating lake, cafés and exhibition venues, is around 20 minutes' walk from the hotel, or a 10-minute bus journey from the Gran Via.

The property is less than 15 minutes' walk from the Royal Palace, the official residence of the Spanish royal family. This impressive 18th-century building is open to the public (except during state ceremonies) and you can explore the banqueting rooms, the throne room, the residential areas and the Royal Armoury (fees apply).

The city's main square, Plaza Mayor -- "one of the prettiest open spaces in Spain" (Lonely Planet) built in the early 17th century during Phillip III's reign -- is around 10 minutes' walk from the hotel. The Puerta del Sol, Madrid's most central square, is less than 10 minutes' walk away.

Back at the hotel, Bob's Bar serves a selection of Mediterranean wine, craft beers and cocktails coupled with typical Spanish tapas. It's on the ground floor and has a private lounge terrace.

Rooms are elegantly furnished and have wooden flooring throughout. Some GranVia Premium rooms also have a terrace and city views. Wi-Fi is free.
