What was supposed to be an art-intended drop in visit, ended up being a whole afternoon of art, wining and dining. Hotel Villa Real is just so magnificent that you want to spend your whole day there. The luxury hotel - decked out in marble - has plenty of common spaces to relax and rejuvenate. The restaurant East 47 is a delicate blend of Mediterranean cuisine with a funky twist. I tried the Truffled Potato Cream Soup with Mushrooms and was spellbound. On the way out of the hotel, a lovely jar of jelly beans on offer was the perfect touch for this sweet afternoon.

Located on a sunny corner of Plaza des Cortes, The Hotel Villa Real is optimally located for strolling to all of Madrid's major sites. The surrounding neighborhood is very upscale and spotted with embassies and old buildings with wrought elegant iron balconies and the type of architecture that gives Madrid its majestic touches.

Rooms could use a bit of modernizing, but the one I visited was spacious, sunny, and had a nice view over the square. I liked that the bed was two steps higher than the sitting area, as it made the room feel bigger and almost like a mini loft.  The furniture was a dark burnt sienna and felt a bit stodgy, but a big round mirror across from the bed brightened things up.

The hotel's East 47 restaurant is modern with your standard mix of Andy Warhol and zebra print pillows, and is probably a nice spot for an evening drink. By day, I'd recommend the terrace which has seats right on the Plaza des Cortes. It's a lovely spot for an aperitif, though the current façade renovation of two nearby buildings (one just in front of the hotel and another one next to it) means things can get a bit sledgehammery. The noise shouldn't travel up as far as the rooms.

Hotel Villa has a very small gym on the sixth floor, with three cardio machines and a sauna. The hotel doesn't have its own pool, but guests are welcome to use the neighboring Hotel Urbano's terrace pool, which is just a 3-minute walk away.

There's a big taxi stand just outside the hotel, so hailing one down should never be a problem.

The lobby is modern, airy, and very pleasantly perfumed. The help-yourself selection of gummies and candies is a playful touch. 7 different kinds, including pink marshmallows!

Hotel Villa Real is nice, perhaps too nice. The bellhop standing in statue formation may not be as welcoming, but the lobby makes up for it. The rooms, however, leave much to the imagination. They’re small and despite the suites entailing that there could possibly be more spacious rooms, they simply aren’t. Beds are also on the small side. For tall people, these beds could leave your legs dangling off the edge. But location, location, location. I see the appeal because of where it's located and perhaps, that'll draw you here, too!

Hotel Villa Real is a little piece of paradise in the centre of Madrid. The hotel is located near the Golden Triangle of Art so it's perfect for anyone who is hoping to visit the museums.
The reception staff and porter couldn't have been any more helpful and were extremely obliging and answered any questions that I had.
The rooms are beautiful and really spacious- a home away from home except you don't have to do any cooking or cleaning! The room I was in had views over the Plaza de las Cortes and despite the traffic outside, I couldn't hear a peep until I stepped out onto the balcony.
There are complimentary toiletries as well as slippers and cosy bathrobes.
The restaurant is Mediterranean with a New York style interior. Every little detail is included in the hotel and you've certainly picked a winner if you decide to stay.
