One of the city’s newest hotels, the palatial Hotel Adler was built in 1884 and has a turn-of-the-century neoclassical charm paired with the most modern amenities and services, making it one of the most sought-after accommodation in Madrid. The 45 guest rooms feature sumptuous fabrics and rugs in a beautiful modern boutique environment. Just off the ‘Golden Triangle of Art’, the Prado, Reina Sofia Gallery and Thyssen-Bornemizsa Collection, visitors are also near the upscale Salamanca shopping district.

After a long day filled with Goya, El Greco and shopping, the weary traveler can spend time in the suite’s large marble bath for some well-needed aqua recreation. A long cool drink in the lobby bar will prepare the visitor for the evening’s foray to the strolling, snacking and sipping ambience of Madrid’s late-night dining scene. Or if the peaceful relaxation at the Adler makes the traveler loathe to venture out, the hotel restaurant features gourmet cuisine and an extensive wine list.
