Did you already decide where to visit this summer holidays? If not, discover amazing Luxury Hotels in the hot and inspiring city that is Madrid, Spain.
Design by the Spanish artist Jaime Hayon, the Barceló Torre de Madrid Hotel has the unique and recognizable characteristic humor that goes hand in hand with superior workmanship and artistic integrity of its creator, originating in a hotel which has already become a modern landmark and a compliment to the arty Spanish metropolis it calls home.
As a sort of “living canvas” of Jaime’s art, each corner, wall and ceiling of the Torre Madrid bears his inventive stamp and beckons visitors to step into his creative world.
The white and gold glazed ceramic sculptures that hang like giant ornaments over the white marble bar top and teal fabric barstools bear Jaime’s “hand” and lend a celebratory air.
The space as a whole is at once grand, sweeping and elegant, yet unpretentious, humorous and witty.
Meanwhile, the minimal background of the building’s structure – think pale pastel painted walls, white marble floors and an abundance of sunlight streaming through a plentiful collection of windows.
The tone for this unique hospitality experience is set from the get-go, as guests are greeted by the enormous sculpture of a black and white striped bear, welcomingly tipping his brass top hat to all who enter the lobby.
Unsurprisingly, hotel guests and city residents alike have adopted the elegant, window-walled bar – which boasts “possibly the tallest drinks cabinet in the city” – as their spot to see and be seen.
