Luxury bespoke holidays and tours to Hotel Urban, Madrid

The grand luxury five star Hotel Urban promises a type of style and sophistication that befits its name, located in Madrid's financial, political, commercial and cultural centre. In the thick of the city centre bustle surrounded by bars and restaurants, the building's 21st century facade is a vision of glass and industrial grey tones. Inside, you will experience absolute luxury on a boutique scale, making it easy to feel very at home. The design theme is ultra-contemporary, with materials such as glass, steel and leather giving a sleek and business-like quality. Ambient lighting ensures that public areas remain welcoming, while an atrium at the centre of the building is illuminated from sunlight through the glass ceiling high above. Taking inspiration from the cultural artwork that can be spotted in the guestrooms, throughout the public areas and in the museum which is located in the basement, an earthy colour scheme can be seen to pervade throughout the hotel. Choose from rooms and suites which range up to the exquisite offering of the Suite Lofts, which offer living and sleeping spaces spread across two floors. Some guestrooms look out onto the atrium, whilst others enjoy views of the surrounding suites. You might be surprised to find that there is an outdoor swimming pool hidden within this metropolitan base, located on the hotel's rooftop terrace where you will also find a number of sunbeds. The terrace is also open in the summer months to those looking to dine in the open air La Terraza del Urban, with its outstanding views and exotic menu. Come nightfall, enjoy a cocktail under the stars here or in the Glass Bar, which is the only oyster bar in Spain and fosters an underground, club-like atmosphere. Meanwhile, the Michelin-starred Cebo Restaurant is the hotel's gastronomic crowning glory, offering creative Mediterranean cuisine crafted out of the best seasonal ingredients. A number of metro stations can be found within a few minutes' walk of the hotel, whilst Atocha train station is under ten minutes away by taxi, making Hotel Urban an excellent choice for a luxury short break in Madrid.

About Madrid

An Expressions tailor-made holiday to Madrid is a chance to explore this lively and passionate capital city with a laid-back lifestyle. Atmospheric cobbled streets link bustling squares which are filled with pavement cafes, whilst tree-lined boulevards are overlooked by neo-classical buildings. Our luxury holidays to Madrid feature some of the best four- and five-star hotels in the city, including elegant hotels and more boutique properties. Visitors to Madrid will find plenty to fill their days. Art and culture play an important role, primarily thanks to the three world-class art museums which make up Madrid’s Golden Triangle of Art, home to works by Pablo Picasso, Salvador Dalí and Francisco de Goya. Illustrating the city’s rich history are the sights of Old Madrid, including the lavish Royal Palace, the grand Plaza Mayor, and the city’s spiritual centre – Puerta del Sol. There are plenty of designer shops to browse throughout the city, as well as small boutiques and flea markets which visitors might stumble across. It is after dark that Madrid really comes alive as the streets, parks and open-air cafes fill with people of all ages and the bars and clubs remain open until dawn. What better way to recover from a late night than to while away a morning in the Parque del Retiro, strolling through the beautiful gardens and perhaps hiring a rowing boat on the park’s tranquil lake. For those who wish to escape the energetic city, a number of towns are located nearby which make for an interesting day trip.

Highlights of Madrid

Numerous squares including the historic Plaza Mayor, the setting of bullfights and executions during the Spanish Inquisition. The Royal Palace, a lavish building which was constructed in the 1700s and is still used today for state occasions. The Prado Museum, one of the largest art galleries in the world which contains an impressive selection of Spanish paintings including works by Goya and El Greco. Reina Sofia Museum, displaying modern works including Picasso’s ‘Guernica’. Thyssen-Bornemisza Museum, based on a private art collection which illustrates the history of western art and includes pieces by Goya, Degas and Renoir. Retiro Park formerly used by the royal family and now a popular spot for relaxation. The Teatro Real, an important opera house with performances of opera and dance. Almudena Cathedral. Gran Vía, a famous street which is lined by theatres and shops. Debod Temple, an ancient Egyptian temple which was rebuilt in Madrid in the 1960s. The Santiago Bernabéu Football stadium, home to Real Madrid. El Rastro Market, an open-air flea market which is held on Sundays. Ventas Bullring where bullfights take place every week during the bullfighting season.
