We have just returned from a trip to Spain which included a 3 night stay in Madrid. We had originally booked our accommodation there at Villa Real. We arrived to be greeted by the manager telling us the hotel was going to start renovations that would disrupt our stay. They had made alternate arrangements at another Derby Hotel around the corner, the Hotel Urban. Although we found it strange we were not notified in advance we did not have a problem with the change after being assured that the Hotel Urban was a step up from the Villa Real (hence the renovation) and most importantly located right around the corner in the same area we wanted to be in. It is located within walking distance to the Prado, the Royal Palace and a number of Madrid's beautiful gardens and Calle Serrano, an amazing shopping street. We could not have been more satisfied - From the moment of check-in to our departure we were taken very good care of. The hospitality and advice of the concierge desk, the waiters, bar tenders, pool attendants, doormen and housekeeping were without fault. The restaurants and Flamenco evening recommendations were fantastic. Our room was spacious, clean, quiet and modern. The rooftop pool is tiny and on the cold side but good for a quick refreshing dip and a poolside drink after a day of hot August walking in the city!
The incredible art and statuary collection even stretches to the guest rooms - a very nice touch. Best of all if you like the pictures on the website it is exactly what you get - not always the case with a few places we have unfortunately booked in the past!
A stay at the Hotel Urban will make your stay in Madrid a very enjoyable one. A special thanks to Concierge Patricia who made our stay in Madrid a wonderful experience.
