In recent years, there has been an increasing trend for small, stylish hotels that concentrate on fantastic customer service, making them an ideal refuge after a day of business or pleasure. Hotel Villa Real is one such place. Based near the Parliament building and only a short walk away from the Prado, Thyssen and Reina Sofia Museums, it has a classical design and one of the finest private collections of Roman mosaics and Ampuria vases dating from the 3rd and 4th centuries AD.
Built in the 19th century, the hotel has since undergone a series of refurbishments. There are some amazing views from its terraces over the Retiro Park and the Botanical Gardens. In its grand luxury rooms, decorated with 19th century furniture, French fabrics, Carrara marble and Swedish hardwood floors, guests will find a warm, comfortable and discreet atmosphere.
The hotel's East 47 restaurant has won various awards over the last few years and is a great place to enjoy first-class signature cuisine while contemplating original Warhol artworks.
