Expert review of Hesperia Madrid
Bright, modern and full of life, the Hesperia is all about comfort and facilities. There’s something here to keep everyone happy - particularly gourmets. It has been very well designed by leading interiorist Pascua Ortega, but doesn’t feel like a ‘design hotel’.
On the Paseo de la Castellana, so more in the business than the tourist area. There are loads of buses whizzing past though, so it’s easy to get around if you don’t want to get taxis everywhere. If you’ve been to Madrid a few times, you might enjoy being in this area. There are lots of good restaurants nearby too, as well as a few of the lesser-known museums.
There are 170 rooms, including 34 suites. Design is pretty traditional, but with contemporary touches. Junior suites have Nespresso machines and Bulgari products in the bathroom, while the presidential suite has a fantastic roof terrace with a jacuzzi. This is a hotel for dog lovers, as you can even book a special pet room, complete with toys and treats.
There is a huge light-filled atrium at the centre of the hotel and lots of stylish spaces to sprawl around in.
The Santceloni restaurant, with chef Oscar Velasco, has two Michelin stars. It is overseen by Santi Santamaria, one of Spain’s top chefs, who also devises the menus at La Manzana, the more informal restaurant in the atrium which offers seasonal dishes using top-quality ingredients. There is a sushi restaurant too, if you fancy a change.
There is a great gym on the top floor with panoramic views over the city.
Mix of business and leisure travellers, with a fair smattering of famous faces.
Breakfast is 29 euros, so you'd better be hungry if it's not already included in your deal. Free WiFi.
