If I could list just one thing (because this is the only thing I’ve got) Madrid lacks is the sea. But nothing more; a list of sophisticated design hotels, 28 °C,rooftop terraces of my dreams with the most spectacular views of the city’s urban layout, parks and museums filled with art and lush hidden bars treated me well throughout my stay. Madrid was love at first sight, probably thanks to the fact that I had the privilege to be amongst the stunning hotel; coolrooms atocha’s first guests. The hotel is only open in a soft mode yet, which meant that I could get breakfast in bed instead of their upcoming restaurant. Not too bad, is it?
COOLROOMS Atocha is an exclusive hotel located in Madrid ́s heart in a majestic building of 19th century. The hotel has a spectacular entrance, guarded by the figure of the god Hermes: exceptional symbol and witness of the most amazing stories and secrets, that encloses this urban palace. COOLROOMS Atocha offers several types of rooms and suites, being some of the largest rooms and bathrooms in the capital. Elegant decoration, comfortable beds designed exclusively for COOLROOMS and designer furniture. Each room features a range of designer vases, chic desks, home décor items and books from the famous Spanish artist, Manolo Valdés. Still one of my favourite corners of the room was the spacious bathroom with its double golden taps, black and white flooring and marble details equipped with essentials to boost comfort. PS If you’d like to opt for maximum comfort with a hint of luxury, the 2 suites have an incredible private terrace with an impressive view of the rooftops of Madrid and a small jacuzzi in the exterior.
What did I miss by being one of the first guests? Executive Chef Joseba Guijarro, with a Michelin star in his career, will offer guests a menu based on the local product, the artisan elaboration and the recipes of dishes that reveal the most authentic flavors of Madrid in the terrace restaurant. In the tapas bar El 34, the best tapas in the capital and in the lounge bar, a premium cocktail bar to enjoy Madrid evenings and nights.
I guess this is just an excuse to be back, and I definitely will.
