The hotel’s prominent setting on arguably Madrid’s most iconic avenue, the Gran Via, means that guests are at the centre of the action. Known locally as the ‘Spanish Broadway’ and the ‘Street that Never Sleeps’, the Gran Via is home to numerous period cinemas and 20th century theatres as well as a host of trendy wine bars and high-end nightclubs. Shopaholics will enjoy the array of designer boutiques, luxury fashion houses and premium department stores which line the avenue, whilst the opportunity to experience traditional Spanish tapas is abundant due to the number of authentic bistros and restaurants which can be found there.
Perfectly positioned in the city’s historic centre, this Top Secret Hotel’s location ensures that its guests are only ever a few minutes’ walk from the majority of Madrid’s main tourist attractions. Just a stone’s throw away is the famous Plaza de España situated at the western end of the Gran Via. Notable for its imposing monument of the playwright Miguel de Cervantes, the square had significant historical importance during the Spanish Inquisition and is also flanked by two of the city’s most remarkable art deco skyscrapers, the Torre de Madrid and the Edificio España.
Just around the corner from the Plaza de España lies one of Madrid’s most popular tourist destinations and a must-see for first-time visitors to the city, the Palacio Real. With over 3,418 rooms the Real is the largest royal palace in Europe and has been the official residence of the Spanish royal family since 1738. The palace’s ornate baroque architecture, opulent state apartments and surrounding gardens of Sabatini and Campo Del Moro draw in millions of tourists annually and make the Palacio Real a treat for both families and couples on a romantic city break.
