Madrid Grandness packed into a Hipster Neighbourhood
In the centre of the city, away from the well-trodden tourist areas, Urso Hotel & Spa is set in an early 20th Century building, with 78 rooms and suites. The hotel retains its neo-classical elegance, whilst bringing a fresh and stylish perspective in its interiors, as befits a modern capital. Sister hotel to Cap Rocat and Torralbenc in the Balearics, Urso Hotel & Spa shares Pablo’s Carrington’s idea of simple luxury.
Pablo Carrington, General Manager, says: ‘I have wanted to open a hotel in Madrid for quite some time and I’m certain that we have found the right spot. The building is utterly unique; it occupies a whole block, which means that all the rooms are exterior facing. Its location is second to none...’
Set between the residential neighbourhood of Chamberi, the trendy Chueca district and the new up-and-coming Tribunal area, Urso Hotel & Spa’s gloriously imperial architecture blends beautifully into its chic surroundings of small traditional boutiques, grand embassy buildings and the golden triangle of art galleries. Serrano, the main shopping district, is a short 10 minute walk from the hotel, the Prado and Thyssen museums are just 15 minutes away whilst the Barcelo food market, opening later this year, is right on the hotel’s doorstep.
Pablo continues: ‘Madrid is clearly on the rebound and we plan on being a central part of the city’s rebirth.’
