Now part of the ‘Leading Hotels of the World,’ the Villa Magna is undisputedly one of the best places to stay in Madrid. Everything about the hotel embodies taste and quality; if the fact that all rooms are scented with a perfume created by the prestigious Parisian maison Blaise Mautin isn’t enough for you, perhaps you’ll be impressed by the Magic Mirror televisions in the rooms or the two highly-regarded in-house restaurants, one run by Michelin-starred chef Eneko Atxa. Nor should we neglect to mention the hotel’s private health facilities, one of the best state-of-the-art gyms in the city – where you can even get your hair done without worrying that your poor grasp of Spanish will lead to disaster beneath the scissors.
Its location on the Paseo de la Castellana is far from remote; this is one of the longest and widest avenues of Madrid, and therefore also one of its busiest. However, this also means that Madrid’s Art Triangle, the Palacio Royal and the Royal Theatre are all in the vicinity of the hotel. Besides, the Magna 22 bar, which offers delicious light snacks, provides the perfect escape from the hustle and bustle of central Madrid, thanks to its location in the luxury terrace of the Villa Magna gardens. Both painfully chic and wonderfully cosmopolitan.
