With interiors by Lázaro Rosa-Violán, the hotel design has been inspired by the eclectic character of the area, fusing elegant and contemporary styles with a relaxed, welcoming ambience, all within a completely remodelled neoclassical building, dating back to 1924. Located on a street named ‘Montera,’ a reference to the hat worn in traditional Spanish costume, this handcrafted item is the main inspiration for the hotel’s design. Evoking a bespoke story, it is a recurring theme throughout the property in artwork featured in corridors and public areas, in the iconic valet stand found in each room, door handles, the trimmings of the bed’s headboards and team member uniforms.

The guestrooms at Hotel Montera Madrid provide guests with a tranquil space, combining traditional Castilian design with a modern twist. The neutral tones throughout the décor, the rounded mirror and picture frames and the delicate trimmings on the headboards allude to old Spanish decorative style. The guestrooms have also been designed to ensure the property is sustainably efficient, including controlled LED lighting, energy saving window fittings which avoid heat and cold loss and reusable water bottles in the room to avoid plastic waste.
