A boutique style hotel in the centre of Madrid, Hotel de las Letras, is really worth a visit. My search for a hotel in Madrid was quite extensive as we had never visited before. I had no personal recommendations and the review sites were all inconclusive. In the end it was a travel feature on Madrid in The Guardian, which tipped the balance. And I’m glad it did. The hotel is not much to look at from the outside, but once inside the carefully restored building has touches of both old and new. In the wrong hands this can be a disaster, and I know that a few reviewers did not like this aspect of the hotel, but I felt that the ambience was just about right.
My family had two rooms, a superior, and a standard. Both were well furnished with comfortable beds and plenty of toiletries etc. It is worth paying the extra for the superior as they have a balcony and private hot tub. This was well used as it is an ideal way to wind down, and cool down, after a long day’s sightseeing. The mini-bar is well stocked and not too expensive, so a cold one in the hot tub was a very welcome distraction. As was the very trendy roof-top bar. Here we drank one of the best mojitos ever and watched the sun set over Madrid.
The hotel is clean, the staff are efficient and courteous, and the location is very central. A perfect hotel for any sort of visit to Madrid. Highly recommended.
