Official star rating:
On a quiet street near the Royal Palace, this elegant 19th-century duke’s palace is now one of Madrid’s most luxurious hotels.
Set in manicured gardens, the hotel’s modern interior is full of references to the artist Velázquez’s masterpieces – and there are plenty of bells and whistles, especially if you book one of the VIP ‘Red Level’ rooms.
Perks for this tier of guest include a personal butler and access to the private lounge with day-long champagne, drinks and fancy snacks.
But everyone can enjoy the rooftop plunge pool, hot tub and cocktail bar, and the exotic Thai spa. Restaurants include the prestigious Dos Cielos, run by the Michelin-level Torres brothers.
