The Westin Palace Madrid5 stars

Why this hotel? Madrid's finest. Historic building. Excellent location.

Pretty much as good as it gets in Madrid. Originally commissioned in 1912 by King Alfonso XIII who wanted Madrid to have a world-class luxury hotel, the Westin has seen important events in Spanish history and still sets the standards for Madrid today.

All classically-styled rooms & suites feature the signature Westin Heavenly Bed and soundproofing. Located in the cultural centre, the hotel overlooks Plaza de las Cortes and is about 15 minutes from the Chueca gay district.

If you are in town for Pride, then Plaza de Cibeles (which we think is one of the best-viewing locations) is just a 5-minute walk away.

AC Santo Mauro5 stars

Why this hotel? Stunning mansion. Fabulous dining & pool. Superb service.

It is unlikely that the Duke of Santo Mauro would have anticipated that his neoclassical mansion, built in 1895, would end up being converted into a hotel – and even less likely that it would be recommended for gay travellers.

But if you like a bit of class, we are sure you will appreciate the outstanding service and the gorgeous interior. The AC offers a fabulous combination of the contemporary and classic, as well as excellent dining.

The hotel features a nice indoor pool and a decent gym. Located in Chamberi neighbourhood, just a short taxi ride from the gay district.
