Madrid is often Barcelona’s overlooked little sister, yet dig a little deeper and you’ll soon discover her distinct and elegant charms. What Madrid lacks in a wild nightlife scene it makes up for in sheer variety, with a range of architectural pleasures along its streets, an ever-growing culinary scene (that’s competing with the best of Europe’s offerings) and a ton of history – all adding up to one seriously slick city.
TÓTEM Madrid is situated in the city’s Salamanca district, just a leisurely stroll from Parque de El Retiro and some of the city’s best museums, shops, restaurants and art galleries. A sleek, up-to-date style exudes throughout, which you can enjoy over an expertly mixed cocktail in the bar or an evening tasting tapas in the Gastrobar. Guest rooms are wonderfully bright, with plenty of natural light and views over the tree-covered street from their balconies.
All TÓTEM Madrid’s guest rooms exude an up-to-date style that will see you stealing interior-design tips to take home. Deluxe Exterior rooms face the tree-covered street and offer lovely views from their balconies, while Deluxe Attic rooms come complete with atmospheric loft ceilings. Corner Junior suites are are bright and spacious, with a corner location that affords them plenty of light.
The hotel’s attractive restaurant is open daily for lunch and dinner, while the Gastrobar is open daily for breakfast, as well as lunch and dinner, when a tempting selection of tapas is offered. The Cocktail Bar provides every excuse for a tipple, serving expertly mixed drinks in relaxing surrounds each day, and until 3am on Fridays and Saturdays.
The centrally located TÓTEM Madrid is situated in the Salamanca neighborhood, northeast of the city’s historic center. The scenic Parque del Buen Retiro is just a few minutes’ walk away, along with the Museo Nacional del Prado, which displays national art.
How to Get There
The hotel is in a very good location but front desk staff lacks preparation. They seem trainees with little costumer service orientation. Not friendly and want to charge you for everything. Did not feel welcome.
Gorgeous street, stylishly finished rooms, comfortable beds and lovely service. We had a fantastic stay here recently. Our room had some heating issues but they quickly brought us a space heater to address the chill. We loved this place.
TOTEM Hotel is an amazing boutique hotel! Everything is well selected and decorated, we were simply in love with all. The breakfast is served in a cozy space or you can also have on your room as well. The neighborhood is fantastic and very central, we had just 10 minutes walk to get to Park El Retiro. It also has a metro station close by. Definitely recommend!
Totem Madrid is located in the Salamanca district, with countless fashion boutiques and eateries. There are even several small grocery stores nearby. The staff is efficient and amiable. My room is large, and well-equipped. The only thing missing is a coffee maker.
This is our go to Madrid hotel which has been tainted by the check out staff who took exception to me asking me to see my bill before I paid for it. After an unhelpful exchange he reluctantly printed a copy for me to review! From then on his attitude was very difficult and ignorant so much so he just left the desk when he finished serving. Some retraining required!
