Located in the heart of the Spanish capital, the Madrid Edition is the perfect haven amidst the bustle of the city. It’s set right by Puerta De Sol, a public square and tourist attraction, and is also just a few steps away from Kilometer Zero, the geographical center of the country. Other attractions like The Golden Triangle of Art (the home to three of the most important art museums in the city), the Royal Theatre, and the Royal Palace are also easily accessible with a short walk. However, from the moment you step inside, you’ll immediately feel transported to another world.
With design by British architect John Pawson and Paris-based Francois Champsaur, it feels elegant yet simple. Upon entering the hotel, you’ll immediately encounter the Lobby Bar, which is typically filled with people on its white u-shaped sofas, pool table, and a back-lit wood bar with an assortment of multi-colored bottles. Check-in is hidden in the corner and sleek black wood elevators transport you to the rooms, so while the space is busy it still feels intimate.
Similar to other Edition hotels, each of the rooms are outfitted with neutral-colored decor with luxe touches. The two penthouses feature ceiling windows that offer views of the Royal Palace, Almudena Cathedral, and Gran Via, along with separate living and sleeping areas.
The lobby also offers access to Jeronimo, the hotel’s Mexican restaurant by Enrique Olvera, and the Punch Room. Later this year, the restaurant will also launch an outdoor terrace that’s within a private park right outside. You’ll find a selection of appetizer dishes such as guacamole, ceviche, potato flautas, along with fish, pork, and meat main dish options at the restaurant. Up on the roof, the property houses the largest rooftop pool in the city with panoramic surrounding it, along with its other restaurant, Oroya.
Housed within a greenhouse-like setting with colored glass panels, Oroya is helmed by Diego Munoz, a Peruvian chef. It offers tapas with family-style sharing plates, including papa rellena, ceviches, and more, along with cocktails and wines from a menu curated by sommelier Julio Berluenga. Its terrace is surrounded by a lush garden and includes a fireplace, as well as a well-covered pergola.
It’s worth noting that the rooftop is also a great spot to sip cocktails, snack on small bites, and lounge around during warmer days. The pool has 60 sunbeds and 10 cabanas that are the best way to spend hot spring or summer days. After dark, guests can head to Edition’s entertainment venue, which is opening later this year on the hotel’s lower ground level, to grab delicious cocktails. Also on the bottom floor: a fully-equipped gym and wellness facility that offers spa treatments with products from Spanish brand Natura Bisse.
