The NH chain has renovated this old Madrid palace to accommodate a luxury hotel next to Plaza Santa Ana, in the heart of the Literary Quarter.
With a minimalistic but cosy décor that makes the most of natural light, it offers 85 elegant rooms that combine 18th-century Spanish architecture and all the latest mod-cons. Luxury and comfort are guaranteed in this hotel just a stone’s throw from the capital’s top museums.
In the reception area, underneath a glass floor, you can see the remains of an old channel that carried water into Madrid in the 17th century. During the 18th century, the building that once stood on the site of the palace housed the Fonda de San Sebastián, an inn that hosted the very first modern "tertulia" (a social gathering for intellectual discussion) and whose distinguished customers included figures such as Francisco de Goya, José Cadalso, Jovellanos, Felix María Samaniego and Tomás de Iriarte.
