"Avant-garde architecture is the key characteristic at Silken Puerta America, which has several floors designed by world-renowned architects like Norman Foster, Jean Nouvel and Zaha Hadid," says Time Out Madrid.
Nineteen of the world’s best architecture and design studios came together to help create the uniqueness of Silken Puerta América. Each of the hotel’s 12 floors has a different room concept and all use various materials, colours and shapes. Guests can pick their choice of design from an iPad on arrival. Take note: some have open-plan bathrooms, so be careful which concept you go for if privacy is a concern.
All Deluxe Rooms have large windows with panoramic views of the city. Deluxe Rooms are located on floors 2 to 11, but floors 7 and 8 have a supplement of 20€ per room, per night.
The fitness room and a heated stainless-steel pool are both housed in the penthouse. Skynight bar has a retractable roof system for warmer weather. MARMO Terrace is an outdoor space with sofas and tables next to Marmo Bar.
Lágrimas Negras, the ground-floor restaurant, serves seasonal meals based on recipes by the Michelin-starred Basque chef Martín Berasategui. A breakfast of baked continental goods, Iberico ham, eggs and sausages is served on the mezzanine until 11am during the week, and 11:30am at the weekend.
Though Silken Puerta América is not in the centre of Madrid, it is convenient for business and leisure travellers. Cartagena metro station is five minutes away on foot and the IFEMA exhibition halls are a 10-minute drive from the hotel. There is also a daily shuttle service to and from Madrid Barajas Airport and the city centre, available from 7am-9pm.
