The Hotel Unico Madrid is a boutique, luxury hotel in a 19th-century palace in the exclusive shopping district of Salamanca, along the city's famed Golden Mile -- convenient for designer shopping, restaurants and nightlife. It's also near the Metro and the city's world-class museums, and boasts a 2-Michelin-starred restaurant.
Situated just off Madrid's 'Golden Mile', a high-end shopping street littered with designer shops and lively restaurants, bars and nightlife, the hotel is also within reasonable a 24-minute walk along the Paseo del Prado to the world-class Museo del Prado. Set within a park featuring the attractive Real Jardín Botánico and Plaza Murillo, it houses Spanish and European masterpieces from the likes of Goya, Velázquez, El Greco, Titian, Rubens and Bosch. Less well-known, but also worth seeing for its exquisite Impressionist collection, is the Thyssen-Bornemisza Museum – you can buy an art pass for 25€, good value if you plan to visit three or more museums (others in the vicinity include the Real Academia de Bellas Artes de San Fernando, the Reina Sofía museum, the Palacio de Velázquez, Palacio de Cristal and the National Archaeological Museum).
The 44 sophisticated guest rooms and suites feature modern furnishing, high ceilings, hardwood floors, satellite TV, DVD players and free Wi-Fi. Some rooms come with garden or courtyard views, with suites adding separate living areas.
There's a 2-Michelin-starred, award-winning restaurant, the Ramon Freixa Madrid – described by The Daily Telegraph as "a great choice for a special occasion meal". The hotel also has a 24-hour bar, a fitness centre, an open-air lounge, a library and an attractive inner courtyard with gardens. There is 24-hour room service and a 24-hour business centre.
