Neoclassical gem in Madrid's Chamberi district with an eclectic cocktail lounge and a rooftop terrace
Architecturally, this hotel is a stunner both inside and out. Built in 1914 by Spanish architect Ignacio de Aldama Elorz, it's a neoclassical gem in Madrid's Chamberi district. Following an extensive revamp, it opened as the Innside Madrid Genova in January 2013 and successfully showcases original features (lofty ceilings, cast iron gates, stained glass windows) alongside modern updates including a chic cocktail lounge and a 24-hour gym.
Bed and Bath
The 65 guestrooms reflect the upscale Innside hotel chain's signature style, with hardwood flooring, ivory linens, pastel curtains and a soothing nude-taupe-gray color scheme. White orchids feature in all rooms, and tech touches include iPod docks, wall-mounted flat-screen TVs, and handy laptop trays to use in bed. If it weren't for the restored crown moldings, you could easily forget that you're sleeping in a 100-year-old building. The spa-like bathrooms feature wave-patterned tiles and tatami flooring.
The library cocktail lounge is a funky hodgepodge of neon yellow panels, graphic print wallpaper and gray chaise lounges topped with cyan and turquoise cushions. It offers an impressive cocktail menu and tapas dishes. The sixth-floor rooftop terrace is a quirky open-air lounge that offers a beautiful panorama of the city. With a smattering of outdoor sofas and multicolored deck chairs, it makes for a great chill-out spot in the summer. A small gym is available 24 hours a day.
In the Area
The Fuencarral shopping district, best known for its alternative boutiques and quirky second-hand stores, is a five-minute walk from the hotel. Admire the graffiti art in the underground district of Malasaña or go bar-hopping in the gay district of Chueca. The Museo Nacional de Ciencias Naturales is within easy reach of the hotel and is a fun option for families. The Alonso Martinez metro station is right at the hotel’s doorstep and provides access to all of Madrid's top sights including the Prado, the Royal Palace and Plaza Mayor.
