Overview

The InterContinental Madrid is housed in an 18th-century palace in the leafy Castellana district. When we visited, we were impressed by the grand lobby, with its marble floors and glass ceiling, and we loved the luxurious bar, which has an old-world Spanish feel to it, plus plush seating and an old-fashioned gin-and-tonic cart. Drinks are served with a generous portion of local tapas.

In Madrid, 5-star hotels tend to be on the outskirts of the city, but the InterContinental is just 12 minutes on the Metro from Plaza Mayor and San Miguel, where you'll find some of the best tapas bars in the area. The Spanish Bank and the world-famous Prado Museum are five minutes' further walk from there. Visit Retiro Park for a relaxed wander around the botanical gardens, or go boating on the serene lake. There is also a spa and fitness centre back at the hotel.

The Sunday brunch buffet is a popular choice for locals and visitors alike -- dishes include lobster, suckling pig, paella and manchego cheese, all served on a huge round table under the chandelier in the fine-dining El Jardin restaurant. Breakfast is served in the café or on the quiet garden terrace in the centre of the hotel.

Classic rooms are typically Spanish in style, with gilt-framed paintings, heavy curtains, marble bathrooms and Andalusian furniture. Upgrade to an Executive Room for free Wi-Fi and InterContinental Club Lounge perks, such as free snacks and drinks. The Suites are more luxurious and have a separate lounge area; most overlook the garden.
