A New Hotel Graces Madrid

Last week Hyatt announced the opening of the highly anticipated Thompson Madrid, the first Thompson Hotels branded property in Spain. We admit we’re excited by this one.

The 175-room hotel is a celebration of thoughtfully curated style and global sophistication with an authentic Madrilenian flair, delivering an exciting destination for culturally astute travelers looking to immerse themselves within the vibrant Spanish capital.

Featuring three signature dining venues, well-appointed spaces with curated design elements and architecture evocative of Madrid’s rich heritage, Thompson Madrid truly embodies the identity of its location. Guests are invited to experience all that the city has to offer through creative spaces, unapologetically bold interiors and elevated gastronomy.

Located on Calle De La Montera, which connects the city’s famed main square, Puerta del Sol, to the theaters, cinemas, and boutiques of the lively Gran Via Street, Thompson Madrid is housed in two historic buildings and is a dynamic and refined home base for guests to explore the authentic character of the city. The buzzing neighborhoods of Malasaña, Chueca, and Madrid’s historic city center are within walking distance of the hotel, and a diverse selection of galleries, museums, culinary delights, and cultural landmarks are on every corner.

“We are excited to welcome guests to Thompson Madrid and invite them to immerse themselves into the culture of the city, which can be found inside and outside the walls of the hotel,” said Carlos Erburu Zazpe, general manager of Thompson Madrid. “Inspired by Madrid’s nearby “kilometer Zero,” which marks the spot all distances in Spain are measured from, all journeys start in Madrid and all authentic Madrilenian experiences for our guests begin in Thompson Madrid.”

As well as providing the expected amenities of luxury hotel living, Thompson Madrid is positioned as a cultural institution and offers guests exclusive access to experiences across the city, including tours, art exhibitions and concerts.

Thompson Madrid will mark the third Hyatt-branded hotel in the city joining Hyatt Centric Gran Via Madrid and Hyatt Regency Hesperia Madrid, and the second Thompson Hotels branded property in Europe will soon join with Thompson Vienna slated to open in 2024.
