Room Mate Alicia
One in a chain of hotels, each with unique personalities based on a fictional character (sibling hotels in Madrid are Oscar, Mario, and Laura), Alicia is crisp and contemporary, with light-wood wall panels and brightly colored bed throws offsetting the otherwise all-white décor. All of the 37 rooms and suites and two duplex apartments have floor-to-ceiling windows, which are original to the early-20th-century former factory building, and are enhanced by modern elements like flat-screen televisions and free Wi-Fi; some have freestanding tubs with views of the historic Plaza Santa Ana, in front of the Teatro Español. A strip of bustling tapas bars is just out the front door.
Room to Book: Room 203, a “junior suite,” is filled with light from a curved bank of windows overlooking the plaza.
