A BusinessClass.com Verified Hotel
The URSO Hotel & Spa is a chic five-star boutique hotel in a non-touristy part of Madrid between central Chamberí, Tribunal, and Chueca. The historic building constructed by José María Mendoza Ussía incorporates bourgeois architecture and characteristics of 20th-century Madrid, including towers and corner rooms with inviting balconies. Original features include a central patio, stained-glass windows, the library, marble floors and wood-panelled walls. Architect Antonio Obrador preserved many of these original features with the remodelling, including the tiled façade and fabulous mahogany lift.
There are 78 rooms and suites, all flooded with natural light from big windows and decorated in soothing teal and ivory shades. The rooms include antique photographs of Madrid, fine natural fabrics, period furniture and quality amenities including natural fibre quilts, Nespresso coffee machine, superior bathroom toiletries. Top-floor suites have large terraces. All have marble bathrooms, most with a separate bath and shower. The excellent Media Ración by Cuenllas restaurant is one of the most popular places to eat in Madrid – so do book ahead. You can also eat in the bar, where light meals are prepared using ingredients sourced from the Barceló market. The hotel spa has a soothing pool area, Hamman, treatments and a gym.
