The Walt Madrid, recently opened in February this year, is a 3-star hotel in the heart of Spain's vibrant capital. The property is one block from the world-famous Gran Via -- "the grand boulevard lined with towering belle-époque facades that climbs up through the center of Madrid" (Lonely Planet).

The hotel's prime location is within walking distance to many of Madrid's most famous sights. The Reina Sofia Museum, where you can admire Picasso's "Guernica," is less than a 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 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.
