This is a list of what I consider the best mid-range hotels in Madrid, in rough order of preference. As you surely have guessed, some of the best values in Madrid accommodations can be found in the mid-range bracket.
Here’s where you’ll find hotels a step up from standard-issue high-end hotels, but with prices more affordable than those charged by the luxury chains.
If you’re willing to spend between 50€ and 75€ per night for a single, twin or double room, you’ll find yourself spoiled for choice in Madrid. There are loads of good-value mid-range hotels in the city and they’re going up all the time. For this money, most of the midrangers are creative originals, blending high levels of comfort with an often-quirky sense of style.
Here you’ll find my reviews of selected mid-range hotels in Madrid.
Room Mate Laura: This hotel is the best of both worlds. Inside, this recently built hotel offers the modern comforts and conveniences you crave. Outside, it authentically re-creates the charming architecture of the 19th century. Inside, the rooms, which stand out for their avant-garde décor, gives you a stylishly warm welcome.
B&B Hotels Fuencarral 52: The hotel occupies a building built in 1830, thanks to a comprehensive rehabilitation project conducted in 2015, and offers a stylish, modern and functional design. Do not miss the panoramic lift vertical garden overlooking the inner courtyard! Spacious, bright and perfectly soundproofed rooms with an elegant design and a great mix of light and color, are very well equipped.
One Shot Prado 23: This stylish 42-room boutique hotel located in the Barrio de las Letras, Madrid’s “Literary Quarter”, has a creative, design-forward vibe, from the funky lobby deer sculpture to the colorful, industrial-chic guest room decor complete with Hopper-inspired photography on the walls. Its central location means there are plenty of bars, cafes, restaurants, and nightlife options nearby. And it is a short walk to Madrid’s three major art museums, the Prado, the Thyssen and the Reina Sofía.
Moderno: With a a stylish exterior dating from 1850, the hotel has been refurbished inside to give it a light and airy feel. Within a few steps you have the bustling Puerta del Sol square, and a wide selection of shops, bars and restaurants you will need.
Room Mate Alicia: This 37-room boutique is part of a stylish yet affordable chain that offers a youthful, playful design at a good price. All rooms have pops of bright blue, yellow, or red, along with modern furniture, sleek track lighting, and Roy Lichtenstein prints. Conveniently located near Plaza Santa Ana, this hotel offers comfortable rooms with high ceilings and lots of natural light.
Petit Palace Londres: The Petit Palace Londres is located in Preciados Street, – a great shopping area in Madrid’s city center. Though this district can be loud with late-night revelers, the hotel is located on a somewhat quiet pedestrian-only street. This 76-room hotel has some nice perks, including stocked minibars, free bike rentals, and free breakfast served in a sunny room with city views and a nice terrace.
NH Balboa: Located in one of the most glamorous districts of Madrid, the Barrio de Salamanca, the NH Balboa is a large but comfortable hotel. One of its main strengths is its wonderful cuisine, as the hotel contains the very exclusive Nhube space created by renowned chef Ferrán Adriá.
Hotel Cortezo: It has the bonus of being in a central location, just a couple of minutes away from Puerta del Sol, Plaza Mayor and Tirso de Molina, on a relatively quiet street. The rooms have parquet flooring and are decorated in pleasant Mediterranean colours, giving them a comfortable feel.
Hotel Regina: The best feature of the 180-room mid-range Hotel Regina – aside from its sharp, vintage style – is the hotel’s outstanding location in the center of Madrid close to shopping, dining, nightlife, and attractions. It’s also just a few steps from two metro stations, and a five-minute walk from Madrid’s buzzing central plaza, Puerta del Sol. Rooms are mostly modern and hip, and come with air-conditioning, minibars, and flat-screen TVs.
Exe Suites 33: Boasting a magnificent setting right in the hub of Madrid, this fantastic urban hotel offers an elegant and comfortable accommodation.
