Expert review of AC Santo Mauro

Chic luxury in an elegant Madrid mansion with a relaxing vibe.

The Santo Mauro is one of those tasteful, discreet hotels that celebrities love. It might look a bit staid, but the atmosphere is anything but serious. Jeremy Irons and David Beckham are just two of their more well-known guests, but you never know who might spot.

Location: 

Outside the tourist area, the hotel is in a well-heeled neighbourhood with lots of embassies in the surrounding streets, along with restaurants and cafés. You will probably find you are taking a lot of taxis for short hops if you stay here.

Bedrooms: 

There are lots of mauve and grey tones lending a cool, calming vibe to the 51 rooms, which are all different. In superior rooms you also get a bathrobe and better quality bathroom products. If you want a bit of extra privacy, book a junior suite in the adjoining building.

Public areas: 

The neoclassical mansion was built in 1894 for the Duke of Santo Mauro and features Italian marble fireplaces and elaborate cornices. AC hotels always go for contemporary design in their interiors, no matter how traditional the building.

The ballroom is now used for conferences, which seems a bit of a waste, as there is no shortage of glamorous guests to liven up the dance floor.

The hotel is surrounded by lovely gardens with chestnut and eucalyptus trees, ideal for sipping a long drink in the shade.

Eating and drinking: 

There is an excellent restaurant in the oak-panelled library. Meals are also served outside in the garden in warm weather.

Leisure facilities: 

There is a lovely pool in the basement, so don’t forget your designer swimsuit. There is also a gym and a steam room.

Service: 

Discreet and efficient - whoever you are.
