    Location 8.65 /10

    In the 'Barrio de las Letras', the literary heart of Madrid, on the Calle Prado, between the Plaza de Santa Ana and las Cortes, and a stone's throw away from the Paseo del Prado and the museums of El Prado, Reina Sofia and Thyssen Bornemisza. The Retiro Park and tapas bars of the Calle de Huertas are also nearby. The closest underground station is Sevilla (line 2). The Madrid-Barajas airport is 7.5 mi away; allow for 25 minutes to get there.

    Accommodation 8.20 /10

    Fitted with a pale parquet floor, the rooms of El Prado Hotel do not have any particular decoration, a picture or whatever, but they are reasonably well equipped. They have individual and discreet air-conditioning, a mini-bar, a free safe with an electronic code, a telephone, wireless internet connection and a flat screen satellite television with 15 channels. A double room, an armchair and a desk complete the ensemble, enlivened by some practical utensils such as a shoehorn or something to wax your shoes with.
    The granite bathroom consists of a bath fitted with a handle and a flexible shower head, hospitality products, a hairdryer, a toilet, a bidet, a shaving and tooth-brushing kit, a large mirror taking up the length of the wall, tissues, a sponge and a comb, and all this brightened up with a pot plant. The bedrooms on the 6th and 7th floors benefit from a large balcony with stunning views. They also have a green carpet, a round table and a chair.

    Overview 7.70 /10

    The El Prado Hotel, whose name evokes the prestigious eponymous museum which is nearby, is a small establishment of 7 floors housing 48 rooms. Built in 1998, the hotel benefited from a renovation in 2003. It is part of the HCT Group (Hoteles Culturales Tematicos), which also includes the Lope de Vega Hotel, located a little further away. The wine theme can be found on every floor, each devoted to a wine-producing region of Spain (Catalonia, Navarre, Aragon, the Basque Country, Valencia, Extremadura and La Rioja) with framed photographs of the vineyards. You can relax in the Prensa del vino lounge with its library, its basket of apples and its big plasma screen.

    Food and drink 7.20 /10

    The restaurant service is limited to breakfast only, served from 7:30 am to 11:30 am (and from 8:00 am to 11:30 am at the weekend) in the form of a buffet. Breakfast is taken in a room much like a cafeteria, equipped with a large flat screen television, and able to hold up to 40 guests.

    To know

    Two computers are available in the reception area to surf the internet for free. The whole of the hotel benefits from free wireless connection. On every floor you will find a basket of apples and sweets for you to pick from free of charge. Wine enthusiasts will not miss the opportunity to inform themselves on Spanish wines, due to the photographs and explanations that pepper the walls of the establishment.

    Accommodation Advice

    Only the rooms on the 6th and 7th floors benefit from a large balcony: where you can enjoy beautiful views. The hotel includes two superior rooms, located on the 7th and last floor. Our favourite is room 407, with its special blue-coloured decoration that includes a very nice blue leather armchair. Every room is equipped with a CD player.

      In the very heart of Madrid, half-way between the Peurta del Sol, the Gran Via, the Neptune Fountain and Plaza Santa Ana, the Astuias hotel is a modest establishment with 175 guest rooms and a restaurant that offers a different menu every day for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Complete renovations are set to take place in 2011 or 2012, with the aim of obtaining a 4th star. Nevertheless, during our visit, a renovation of the various varieties of guest rooms was not part of the programme and, as it is, some of them are more modern than others.

      This is a truly original, almost museum-like hotel. Each floor was created by a different internationally-renowned architect, Jean Nouvel bagging the 12th and top floor. Basically, this is 12 hotels in one! The Silken Puerta America is the only hotel of its kind in the world and really should be tried at least once for a truly original experience, even 12 times to try all the different concepts! An upmarket establishment which is rather expensive and caters for a business clientele, located near the airport but away from the town centre.
