The great Paseo de la Castellana, one of Madrid’s most iconic avenues, takes hotel guests into the heart of the capital and to the Paseo del Prado. Home to some of the most celebrated art institutions in the world, the avenue is also known as the ‘Golden Triangle’ of fine art museums. The Reina Sofia Museum, Prado Museum and the Thyssen-Bornemisza Museum have combined collections featuring masterpieces from the likes of Titian, Caravaggio, Dali and Picasso, making this triad of museums a must-see for any art enthusiast. All within a few hundred metres of one another, the museums are some of Madrid’s premier tourist destinations and tourists are advised to book their tickets in advance to avoid disappointment.
To the right of the Paseo de la Castellana and within walking distance from the hotel is Madrid’s largest public park, the Parque del Buen Retiro. Translating to mean the ‘Park of Pleasant Retreat’, the park encompasses 350 acres of pristine parkland, beautiful sculptures, covered art galleries and an idyllic boating lake. This oasis within the heart of the city is especially ideal for young families, owing to the regular puppet performances that take place at Retiro Pond as well as the rowing boat hire, horse-drawn carriage tours and weekly bandstand concerts.
