The hotel is on a quiet street right in the centre, with the Teatro Real opera house and Opera metro station a minute's walk down the hill. The Royal Palace is a five-minute walk away.

You’ll come across plenty of bars and restaurants on the neighbouring streets, as well as the shops lining the adjacent Gran Vía, Arenal and the Puerta del Sol.


The hotel occupies the site of the Santo Domingo convent and the 19th-century palace of the Dukes of Ega and Villahermosa. Although the building has been comprehensively revamped, original features remain.

There is a Velázquez theme throughout the hotel with large reproductions of the great master’s paintings and the colour scheme is inspired by the tones of his palette, with shimmery fabrics in hues of ochre, indigo and maroon.

There are 160 rooms and 20 suites with gold, champagne, charcoal and midnight blue décor. Rooms in superior categories and suites are part of Red Level – which is like a club within the hotel with extra perks – but the design is largely similar in all types.
