Gran Hotel Inglés
Scale of 90-100
This recently renovated 48-room hotel is located in the Barrio de las Letras neighborhood, which many of Spain’s most famous writers and thinkers have called home. With new interiors overseen by New York’s Rockwell Group, the hotel effortlessly blends a sense of tradition with subtle modern accents. First opened in 1886, the hotel’s rich history is preserved with an expansive lobby featuring antique cast-iron pillars and a circular bar set beneath a skylight that hosts breakfast, traditional tapas and lunch, afternoon tea and classic cocktails. Premium Rooms are spacious and feature oak floors, padded-leather-paneled walls, writing desks and contemporary chandeliers; marble countertops accent the bathrooms. Other amenities include the chic LOBO 8 restaurant serving contemporary Spanish cuisine, an elegant spa, a jet pool and a fitness center. Mixology classes with the head bartender are also available.
