This well-run hotel is located in central Madrid right on the Gran Vía. Though officially for members only, its Club Emperador has long been a favorite hangout for residents and visitors alike. Even more popular is that rarity among Madrid hotels, a rooftop pool, open here in summer from 11am to 9pm to the delight of guests seeking a cool, refreshing dip. The city views are stunning, too. The spacious, traditionally furnished rooms enjoy a tranquil atmosphere in spite of the noisy neighboring thoroughfare, and service is discreetly attentive. This is one of the capital's most popular hotels, so early booking here is strongly advised.
