Gran Hotel Ingles is Madrid’s oldest hotel, opened in 1886. It continues a long tradition of innovation and guest satisfaction that began all those years ago when it was the first hotel in the Spanish capital to have its own restaurant and one of the few to have electricity. Standards and expectations have risen in the intervening years, but today it works hard to retain its affection with the elite and moneyed traveller. There’s a 20th century vibe to the room décor, with accents in brass and burnt orange to complement the neutral base palette. Lobo 8, the hotel’s restaurant, emphasises traditional fine dining with a contemporary twist. Bronze, marble and glass bring a touch of Art Deco elegance to the spa; wellness in style via gym and jacuzzi sum up the offering.
The Gran Hotel Ingles is located in Barrio de las Letras, a neighbourhood brimming with character and history. In the 16th century, you’d have seen makeshift theatres in the district’s courtyards, a hangout for writers like Cervantes, author of the classic Don Quixote. Today, it’s just as compelling, packed with tapas bars, trendy eateries and one-off boutiques.
