Ocean Drive Madrid, like its sister hotels under the OD Hotels brand in Ibiza, Mallorca, and Barcelona, strives to truly connect its guests to the location they are staying in. Situated in Plaza de Isabel II, in front of the Opera Palace, and only a few steps from the Royal Palace, Plaza Mayor, Puerta del Sol and Gran Vía, means guests are in the heart of the action in Spain’s capital city, and just a short walk from the well-known neighbourhoods of La Latina, Huertas, Los Austrias, Malasaña or Chueca.

Contemporary design, elegant architecture and a Mediterranean colour palette are present throughout the hotel’s 72 guestrooms. This style continues in the airy and bright reception area, the lobby bar, and the lively restaurant with its garden terrace, where natural materials and design-focused furniture bring the social space, for both guests and locals, to life. Each OD Hotel has its own OD Sky Bar, and Madrid is no exception, with a swimming pool and terrace where guests can sip cocktails and admire the city views.

The hotel’s sensitive design has been created by the architectural studio of Victor Rahola and interior designer Mayte Matutes. This design is also complemented by the most advanced and sustainable technology drawing on bioclimatic measures to achieve the maximum reduction in energy demand. As a result of this combination of design and technology, the hotel was recognised in the Re-Think 2019 awards as the best project in sustainability and hotel rehabilitation in Spain.

Guests will love retreating from the city to the contemporary bedrooms, which feature full-height windows, Bower & Wilkins speakers, design classics like the Eames LCW chair, a desk, and some have their own balconies. A selection of rooms also have unique features like a record player with vinyl records, a photo printer, and a beer tap. Those choosing a corner Deluxe room, will also delight in the in-suite Taschen library for design and culture-inspired reading.

A knowledgeable concierge team will ensure the best experience in the city, connecting guests with the top places to eat, drink, shop and discover. The city is also brought into the hotel with OD’s own events, which are popular with locals and guests alike, and make it a vibrant place to be all year round. Choices like Burger Meets Gin, is a regular afterwork event with delicious burgers, premium Gin & Tonics and music from DJs or live performances; Hello Sundays! with its vinyl market and workshops; or Painting & Wine, which sees painting courses with local artists accompanied by a glass of wine. Ocean Drive Madrid will also offer spaces for co-working for guests and locals.

Drawing on their experience of hosting their own events, Ocean Drive Madrid is well equipped to arrange a wide range of private events, from large corporate launches to intimate dinners. The combination of multipurpose spaces, personalised service, technology and an ethos of always saying ‘Yes’ makes for a very successful private event.

Ocean Drive Madrid is part of the OD Hotels group, which owns six hotels in the most significant and attractive areas in the Mediterranean – Ibiza (Ocean Drive Ibiza, Ocean Drive Talamanca and Can Jaume by Ocean Drive), Mallorca (Ocean Drive Port Portals) and Barcelona (Ocean Drive Barcelona); Madrid (Ocean Drive Madrid), and an international opening is planned soon for the French Côte d’Azur (Saint Tropez).

First Canopy by Hilton hotel opens in Spain

Situated in the heart of the capital city, Canopy by Hilton Madrid Castellana has arrived in the Azca neighbourhood with a focus on cultural hospitality and contemporary design that speaks the local language…

Red lobby inside the first Canopy by Hilton property in Spain

The vibrant lifestyle brand that takes inspiration from local neighbourhoods, Canopy by Hilton, has official arrived in Spain, with the opening of Canopy by Hilton Madrid Castellana.

Since your here, why not read our review of the UK’s latest Canopy by Hilton hotel?

The property, owned by Hotel Investment Partners (HIP), is located in the financial district of the city. It is one of a trio of European openings under the Canopy by Hilton brand this year, following the summer opening of Canopy by Hilton Paris Trocadero, and the soon-to-open Canopy by Hilton London City.

“This stylish hotel truly emanates the iconic city of Madrid, offering travellers an authentically local experience. Our third opening in the Spanish capital in the last year and Spain’s first Canopy by Hilton, we’re excited to launch yet another enticing option here in Spain for travellers visiting from across the globe, including the more than 118 million members of our award-winning Hilton Honors guest loyalty program,” said David Kelly, Senior Vice President, Continental Europe, Hilton. “This opening is a further statement of our continued commitment to the Spanish hospitality market, as well as our growing confidence in a strong recovery for the tourism sector in the months and years to come.”

The theme of ‘Red’ Madrid underpins an interior design scheme that embraces popular “Madrileño” culture from the forefront of design. The project was masterminded by the studio of interior designer Jaime Beriestain and takes inspiration from the city itself — as the cradle of cañí [traditional Madrid] culture — to produce a space by everyone and for everyone, in the words of Madrid’s unofficial hymn. The 314-key hotel, with 12 meeting rooms, has a distinct local look and feel, creating a comfortable environment for business and leisure travellers alike.

“We wanted to create an airy, open space, without barriers so that people could meet, see and be seen,” explained Beriestain. “For me, Madrid symbolises the colour red; it is a place where passion reigns and different, connecting cultures converge. That is why it is so important to offer the city a space that reflects that philosophy, a place to connect and meet — that is the concept behind Canopy by Hilton Madrid Castellana.”

Following the comprehensive refurbishment of the building’s interior, the hotel was planned as a setting to be lived and enjoyed. Airy, open spaces greet the visitor in a lobby — which creates an ambience conducive to conversation. The lobby is dominated by Canopy Central, a gastronomic meeting point where visitors can enjoy a specialty coffee or food prepared from healthy, local ingredients.

On the mezzanine, locals and visitors mingle at Planta Z, a spectacular terrace where you can enjoy fun street food-style dishes with live music. The menu is focused on delicious, fresh and healthy cuisine, designed to be shared and combined with the extensive cocktail menu. A new casual meeting place in the capital for residents and visitors to experience the unique ‘Madrid vibes’.

Hotel guests can also enjoy the exclusive pool terrace with views of Madrid’s rooftops and skyline – a typically romantic Madrid scene. To complete this ‘local experience’, the hotel welcomes all guests with violet sweets in their rooms, a souvenir that no visitor to Madrid should miss.

There are currently 31 Canopy properties open around the globe and 29 under development across 16 countries and territories.

The building was inaugurated in 1923 as the Alfonso XIII hotel, and was always known as the Hotel Avenida. In recent years it was renamed the TR YP Cibeles hotel, and it will now be changing its name to Gran Via due to the fact that its façade is now part of the history of Madrid and one of its most popular streets.

In addition to a spectacular rooftop area, the hotel will have an open living lounge on its seventh floor, which will be a space for work or play in the order that every visitor decides. This space will host the reception, artistic spaces, the bar, restaurant and DJ area.

INNSiDE By Meliá Madrid Gran Via aims to become a fashion and dining icon for both locals and tourists in Madrid thanks to the Abica group and “A Ollo”, a dining space with a Galician flair and international influences, as well as an incredible rooftop bar, “Le Tavernier”, an oasis in which to enjoy cocktails and the sky over the centre of Madrid.

The brand is expected to be the fastest-growing brand in the company’s portfolio over the coming years, prioritising sustainability and respect for the environment.

Meliá Hotels International has also used the hotel renovation to implement its new Stay Safe with Meliá health and safety programme certified by Bureau Veritas, which has been very well received during the pandemic and reinforced the trust of customers in the group’s hotels.
