Barceló Torre de Madrid
Rainfall showers, king-size beds, and big screen televisions are just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to the rooms at the Barceló Torre de Madrid (and there are 285 of them all told). Light and airy, with a palette of soft bright colours – a little creamy lemon yellow here, sky blue there – the rooms, even at the lower end, are more than a little welcoming. Scaling up the luxury, the premium rooms have views out over the nearby Gran Vía, Plaza de España or the Royal Palace (it’s a very well-located hotel), while the suites offer additional rooms and private outdoor terraces.
Moving through the amenity-studded Barceló Torre de Madrid, guests will find the GARRA Lobby Bar and Restaurant SOMOS (keep an eye out for the giant striped sculptural bear), both of which draw happy diners and imbibers from within the hotel’s walls and beyond. After all, what’s not to like about gourmet dishes and vintage Champagne?
There’s also a wellness area, ideal for those who have over-indulged or simply need a little pampering, featuring a pool, gym, sauna, and sun terrace. And of course there are all manner of beauty treatments, from facials to manicures, to push the relaxing experience over the top. But should your visit to the Barceló Torre de Madrid be more aligned with business needs than personal pleasure, fear not; the on-site meeting rooms are kitted out and ready when you are.
