Spain's capital is a vibrant, cosmopolitan city where history, art, cuisine and music combine to charm visitors and locals alike. "No city is more alive than Madrid", says Lonely Planet, and you'll be staying in an excellent spot to experience all it has to offer at the Hotel Sieteislas.
Located on a quiet street, off the Gran Via, the hotel is within walking distance of the Retiro Park, Thyssen-Bornemisza Museum and the Prado Museum. The Centro Histórico is also only a 12-minute walk and the lively Malasaña, Chueca and Lavapiés districts are easily accessible. The Gran Via metro station is just around the corner for journeys further afield and connections to the airport.
Sieteislas means "seven islands" and the hotel's design revolves around the seven Canary Islands. Each room is themed to a Canary village, and the décor is summery throughout. The lobby is particularly impressive, with modern art installations, a bar that is open until 11pm and a computer for guests' use. There are also two bikes available for hire, and a public gym nearby that guests can use (5€ per day).
Upstairs, the bedrooms are more classic than the lobby. Wi-Fi is free (request a code from reception), and there is a mini-bar and air conditioning throughout. A varied buffet breakfast is served on the first floor each morning.
