This is the hotel that best conveys Madrid's new cosmopolitan spirit, with its stylish mix of authentic ancient artifacts and daring sophistication. The New Guinean carvings in the lobby, small Egyptian museum, and antique Chinese or Burmese statues in every room all belong to the owner, a renowned art collector. Public areas are distinguished by the tall alabaster column in the lobby's atrium, the tiled and gold-inlay wall on the main staircase, and the sleek cocktail
bar. Rooms, done in dark hues, are less flamboyant. There's a great restaurant and an ultrachic bar on the roof, where the glamorous gather on summer nights to enjoy the views and sip champagne cocktails.

This is one of the most beautiful hotels I have seen. The decor is unbelievable (if you like modern design). The hotel was spotless all the time and the service was great. With all of that being said, it is hard to complain, but we did have issues. The hotel is VERY noisy due to all of the glass and metals that were used for construction. The beds were very hard and we had issues with our airconditioner which never got fixed while we were there.
Also, the rooms did not have movies or radios and only a few TV stations.
