Why we love it...

Archetypal charming small hotel

The Place

If it is a quiet night, the manager of this archetypal charming small hotel may offer you a selection of rooms. The trouble is: which one do you choose if all of them are like showpieces from an antiquated Ideal Home Exhibition?
Each is unique, personal, luxuriously carpeted and decorated with English floral wallpaper. Antiques abound. Everything is carefully arranged and prepared so that you could almost forget you are in a hotel. It comes as no surprise to learn that the hotel was designed by the owner of one of Madrid’s most famous furnishing shops and was featured in Elle magazine. But that does not help you choose your room. Maybe you should just take your chance. How about one of the attic rooms upstairs? Smaller perhaps, but still exquisitely furnished and oozing with character. TVs are only provided on request – otherwise they spoil the decoration.
We had three minor reservations about the hotel: the noise from the bar below seems to travel to the rooms above it; the bathrooms are inadequately lit; and breakfast is disappointing. Otherwise, this is a hotel to remember.
