    • To know

    • The hotel's stylish and artistic atmosphere continues into the bedrooms as each has a piece of art from the hotel owner's personal collection exhibited in a display cabinet, such as a Chinese Buddha from the Ming dynasty. Fitted with parquet flooring, the rooms are spacious (291 sq ft). The decoration reinforces the unique character of the room: two small, circular bedside tables made of glass, ultra stylish telephone, black leather sofa, atmospheric lighting, it is a real ambassador for modernity! Of course, you have all the equipment and service to satisfy your every whim: a flat screen LCD satellite TV with 25 channels, discreet and individual air conditioning, a desk, a minibar, a telephone, internet connection, a free electronic code safe and 24 hour room service.
      The clean, well decorated and spacious bathroom has white marble flooring and green walls. The bathroom has a bathtub fitted with a flexible showerhead and a tropical showerhead, a toilet, bidet separated by a sliding door, sophisticated hospitality products, bathrobes, tissues, a magnifying mirror, a hair-dryer and a telephone.

If not, you could always opt for one of the 40 suites: in the suites you can genuinely believe yourself to be in a museum with all the pieces of art, tapestries and statuettes! The vast bathrooms can be found in a large, transparent glass cube. The bathrooms have two originally shaped, cylindrical sinks, a large tropical shower which is separated from the rest of the room, and the bathtub, positioned in the middle.

      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.
