Iberostar Las Letras Gran Vía

Why it made the list

A homey, reasonably priced hotel on the stately avenue of Gran Vía, Iberostar Las Letras is a welcoming oasis from the area’s constant hubbub of tourists and shoppers.

Hotel Único

Why it made the list

For foodie couples, there's no better place to stay than Hotel Único, whose two-Michelin-star Ramón Freixa Madrid bends the palate with unexpected flavors and textures. We love its location, too, tucked away on a quiet side street in the posh tree-lined district of Salamanca.

URSO Hotel & Spa

Why it made the list

On the outside, this property is a stately stunner with its ornate neoclassical façade and statuesque bellhops that may as well be beefeaters. But on the inside, URSO is all about comfort and calm, whether you’re sipping a cocktail in the mellow lounge or unwinding with a couples massage in the intimate spa.

Tótem Madrid

Why it made the list

You may not be steps from Madrid’s main attractions at Tótem, but you’ll thank yourself later: Getting ever so slightly off the tourist track and experiencing a true-blue Madrileño neighborhood will show you an intimate side of the city that most vacationers don’t get to appreciate, and you'll love the arm-in-arm walks in nearby Retiro Park. Inside the hotel, there’s lots to love as well, from the sleek yet comfortable rooms, to the attentive service, to the standout bar and restaurant on the ground floor.

Why it made the list

Hidden away on a leafy residential street not far from Plaza Colón and the gallery-lined Chueca district, this elegant 1886 townhouse boasts every comfort of larger five-star Madrid hotels—sans the stuffy corporate vibes. Sure, the décor is twee and overaffected, and we miss certain modern amenities (a gym would be nice, ahem!), but we'll take Old World romance and grandeur over the vagaries of hotel trends any day.

Hotel Índigo Madrid

Why it made the list

A hip, vibrant hotel off the bustling Gran Vía thoroughfare, Hotel Índigo is best known for its stunning rooftop lounge and outdoor infinity pool, rare features in Madrid that make this property honeymoon material. A note of caution to winter travelers: When the pool is closed for the season, the property loses its main draw, and with it, much of its vitality.

Only You Boutique Hotel

Why it made the list

Only You has all the perks of a boutique luxury hotel—intimate bar, impeccable décor, a 24-hour gym—but remains understated and comfortable at its core. If your budget permits a premium room, go for it; unlike the deluxe rooms, they face the street, have balconies, and are awash with natural light. All suites feature fireplaces, an uncommon cold-weather perk ideal for snuggly nights.

ME Madrid

Why it made the list

ME Madrid feels young and current in an unforced, unaffected way—in a word, it's fun. Overflowing minibars go beyond the usual snacks and nips to include cashmere socks (€65), Agent Provocateur thongs (€39), and sensual massage candles (by Lelo, €22). But you don't need to pony up any extra cash to experience ME Madrid's most memorable perk, its cloudlike bedding that envelops you like a soft cocoon.
