Modest Madrid hotel with two restaurants and a bar on one of the city’s most famous streets

The Lowdown

Drawing inspiration from an 18th-century palace, the InterContinental Madrid is located on Paseo De La Castellana, one of the city’s most famous thoroughfares. The hotel lobby features a giant chandelier and marble floors, while upstairs the modest 302 rooms offer business-friendly conveniences like working desks. Two restaurants serve international and Mediterranean fare under the direction of chef Jose Luque; make reservations at El Jardin del InterContinental for live music and alfresco dining during the summer months. Bar 49 attracts a buttoned up type of clientele, serving sushi, tapas and specialty cocktails like Rossini (fresh strawberries and champagne). And when you venture out to explore the city, you’re a quick walk from the Thyssen-Bornemisza Museum, Prado Museum, Real Madrid Museum and upscale Serrano shopping district.

In the Area

For late night entertainment, head to one of the live music boîtes along Calle Echegaray or Calle Huertas for some jazz or flamenco to go with your gin-and-tonic. On Sundays and holidays the Rastro, Madrid’s sprawling flea market, is worth a visit, and it provides a perfect segue into a rioja-soaked lunch in trendy La Latina. More active types can finish off the weekend — or the workday — with a jog (or just a stroll and an ice cream) in Madrid’s green lung, Retiro Park, or by pottering around the sprawling gardens of the Royal Botanical Garden of Madrid. Art lovers will be in seventh heaven at the Prado, Reina Sofia and Thyssen-Bornemisza museums right on the doorstep.

Excellent hotel

we've stayed as a family for a week and quite happy with our stay. Breakfast can be the best in Madrid, even it's hard to find it. Room quality was perfect, hotel staff was helpful.

Internet was in perfect speed.

A very nice opulent experience. Over the top for some folk but an experience of the utmost luxury and service. It was an introductory treat for us to begin our 9-week journey.
The hotel was and still is slow in applying our reward points bit that is the only criticism.

Still the Very Best!

This was our fourth visit to the IC Madrid in as many years, and the quality of the experience has remained excellent. Although this is a large property, part of a world-wide chain, the attention afforded to the guests is at the level of a luxury boutique hotel. The rooms are spacious and comfortable, and the Club Room is the best I've encountered in my many years of travel. I have celiac disease, and the management always ensures that I have food that I can enjoy that is at the same level as the dishes served to other guests. The concierge has been helpful to my husband on me every time we've stayed at the hotel, arranging for tickets and checking schedules. In addition, the location of the IC is ideal, a block from subway and bus stops, with taxis at the door for times when guests are in a rush. We wouldn't want to stay anywhere else in Madrid!

We have been coming to the InterContinental in Madrid for many years and we feel this is our home in Madrid. Always welcomed by everyone and they take care of all our needs. We had a very nice surprise on Sunday during brunch, as we were treated to a pianist and a couple singing arias from my favorite operas! We highly recommend it!
