Spotlight on Hotel Unico Madrid

Leaving behind the bustle of Madrid’s Golden Mile and entering the tranquil 19th-century palace that houses Hotel Único Madrid, you’re immediately filled with a sense of peace. Behind the hotel’s elegant white façade, a majestic staircase, marble mosaic floors, high ceilings, and huge windows fuse together perfectly to preserve the ambiance of the private noble home the building once was. Now, after an all-encompassing redesign, it’s back as an indulgent city retreat right in the heart of Salamanca—one of Madrid’s wealthiest districts. The beating heart of the hotel is the tranquil garden, where guests come to relax and enjoy a drink after a busy day of visiting the boutique shops, museums, and lush parks that surround this one-of-a-kind, 44-room property, which just so happens to also be the home of a two-Michelin-starred chef—just what you’d expect here in Salamanca, where nothing stands between you and total relaxation.
