In the heart of Madrid’s swanky Salamanca district, this chic boutique hotel is set in an aristocratic 19th-century townhouse.

The refined, monochromatic interior is scattered with bold, contemporary art, with high thread-count sheets and expensive sound systems in the rooms, as well as wow-factor design pieces from light fixtures to bathtubs.

There’s a secret garden for guests with a delightful bar and glassed-in pergola, where you can enjoy one of the best breakfasts in Madrid. Two Michelin-starred chef Ramon Freixa runs the famous restaurant, arguably the best in a Madrid Hotel.

Faultless, personalised service keeps regulars coming back, and the cream of the city’s boutiques and galleries are on the doorstep, making it an ideal base for some serious shopping.

The price tag is considerable, but you absolutely get what you pay for.
