Villa Magna Review
There are luxury hotels in Madrid with grander history or more cutting-edge design, yet none walks along that slippery border between the classic and the modern with as much ease and grace as the Villa Magna. You'll often find celebrity guests sipping cocktails or closing business deals sitting on antique-style furniture reupholstered with modern fabrics and surrounded by bold modern art (the owner is an avid collector). But beneath the surface, it's the smaller details—things that usually go unnoticed—that impart the feeling of indulging something unique: the team of five pastry cooks; the dizzying 100 à la carte massages from the Wellness Center; or the male hair salon that boasts the royal family among its clientele.
There are luxury hotels in Madrid with grander history (the Palace or the Ritz) or with more cutting edge design (the Urban or the Silken Puerta de America) yet none walk that slippery line between classic and modern with as much ease and grace as the Villa Magna. Cross the threshold and you're likely find celebrity guests sipping cocktails in a lounge littered with bold modern art paintings and sculptures, Louis XVI style armchairs, and Empire style couch sofas, all re-upholstered with modern fabrics. But it's really the smaller, behind-the-scenes details that make this hotel so unique: A team of five pastry cooks; the dizzying 100 a la carte massages from the Wellness center; or the male hair salon that counts the royal family as its clientele.
