Madrid is a warm, cosmopolitan European capital and a must for tourists. Nestled in the heart of Spain, its rich historical heritage as witnessed by its majestic architecture, is a reminder that it is and always has been the city of the kings of Spain, and the residence of the royal family to this day.
Although Madrid’s sumptuous buildings proudly recall its glorious past, prestigious modern architects like Jean Nouvel, Richard Rogers and Rafael Moneo have found their inspiration and have left their mark here. Madrid’s rich cultural heritage is represented as well by the presence of no less than 73 museums, including the internationally renowned Prado which possesses one of the world’s largest collection of paintings. The works of Spanish painters includingGoya, Bosch and Velazquez are exhibited alongside masterpieces by Rembrandt, Caravaggio and many others.
Art lovers have a vast choice including Picasso’s celebrated “Guernica” on display at the Queen Sofia Museum.
Madrid however, is by no means a city resting on its past laurels. The present includes an attractive business center as well as all the infrastructures of a modern city. It’s both elegant and exciting, with a great many advantages, and the most important is undoubtedly its warmth, not only in its mild all year round Mediterranean climate but in the warmth of its pleasant and hospitable inhabitants. In short, the Spanish capital is the epitome of charm.
The Villa Magna
The Villa Magna, situated among the palaces and designer boutiques of the Salamanca quarter, is like a bubble of luxury and peace in the heart of the bustling Spanish capital. Once the palace of a count, this granite building possesses 150rooms and suites, combining classic elements with modern design.
The talented decorator, Thomas Urquijo created the sober and contemporary setting for this 5 star hotel.Designer lamps, huge modern canvasses and tapestries blend elegantly with the gold and marble. All the rooms are equipped with the latest technology, and each bathroom includes “Sierra” products by the French perfumer, Blaise Mautin. In the Royal Suite and the Real Suite, immense private terraces enable guests to enjoy the architectural treasures of the city.
The elegance of the Villa Magna is also present in the wide range of service it provides. The discreet and attentive staff is at the guests’ beck and call 24-7.
The Villa Magna, an old hand at hosting salons and professional seminars, is also destined for anyone wishing to take the time getting to know the cosmopolitan side of Madrid.
In terms of dining, the demanding and creative chef, Manuel Gutierrez proposes an updated version of classic gastronomic dishes in one of the hotel’s two restaurants, and so after taking advantage of the range of relaxing appetite building treatments in the spa, why not let yourself be tempted by an “escalope and its vinaigrette sauce with truffles”, or the typical and delicious tapas before heading for the half covered terrace, one of the highlights of the hotel. And since Madrid is reputed to be a city that never sleeps, why not a late night drink in the lounge bar, where Madrid’s young yuppies rush to for the house specialty: a cocktail with a base of rose petals.
Refined during the day and elegant at night, the Villa Magna is a reflection of the city in which it is located : full of charm.
Opened in 1972, the Villa Magna was renovated over a one year period at a cost of 50 million euros. Only the magnificent original floors were preserved.
