Hotel de las Letras

11 Gran Viá
Madrid, 28013, Spain
TEL: 34-915-237-980

The literary aesthetic of this Belle Époque 1917 building with a choice location near Chueca and blocks from Puerta del Sol plays out in details like quotes from famous authors on the landings and phrases from classic literature in rooms. (The hotel’s name is a nod to “el barrio de las Letras,” the area around Plaza Santa Ana that was a stomping ground of literary greats in earlier centuries.) Rooms are minimalist, with white-on-white bedding, restored parquet floors, and walls painted in deep hues like ocher and red. Hallways, with preserved historic oak floors, lead to a spiral staircase circling an original wrought-iron elevator.

Room to Book:

Each of the sixth-floor suites comes with its own terrace and outdoor Jacuzzi.

Insider Tip:

The seasonal rooftop terrace bar is exquisite, with views up and down Gran Via and large white banquettes. Early risers, rest assured: rooms are completely soundproofed.
