The highly anticipated Thompson Madrid has finally opened its doors to the public. The 175-room hotel is the first Thompson Hotels branded property in Spain, and it is setting a new standard for modern luxury stays. The hotel has a sophisticated Madrilenian flair that will appeal to culturally astute travellers looking to experience all that the vibrant Spanish capital has to offer.
Thompson Madrid features three signature dining venues, well-appointed spaces with curated design elements, and architecture that evokes Madrid’s rich heritage. Guests can experience all that the city has to offer through creative spaces, unapologetically bold interiors, and elevated gastronomy.
The Thompson Madrid is located on Calle De La Montera, which connects the city’s famed main square, Puerta del Sol, to the theatres, cinemas, and boutiques of the lively Gran Via Street. The hotel is housed in two historic buildings and is a dynamic and refined home base for guests to explore the authentic character of the city. The buzzing neighbourhoods of Malasaña, Chueca, and Madrid’s historic city centre are within walking distance of the hotel, and a diverse selection of galleries, museums, culinary delights, and cultural landmarks are on every corner.
This hotel’s design is a combination of traditional Madrid architecture with Thompson Hotels’ contemporary style. López y Tena, LYTA Interior Design & Architecture Studio created interiors that are inspired by the sights, sounds, and flavours of the city. Leather, marble, and wood accents are used throughout the hotel to contribute to the sense of timeless design, integrated with ultramodern and sophisticated amenities.
The result is a refined escape that remains rooted in its surroundings. The hotel’s guestrooms and suites have floor-to-ceiling windows and private terraces that invite guests to absorb the city’s ambience. The hotel’s signature penthouse suite occupies two stories and has stylish and spacious living and dining areas, a bespoke bar, and an expansive private balcony that boasts panoramic views of Madrid.
Thompson Madrid is celebrating the transformative energy of its local culture by collaborating with exciting culture shifters. The hotel is leaning into the Thompson Hotel’s Culture Lives Here platform that celebrates the brand’s passion for elevating noteworthy creatives. By partnering with these culture shifters, the hotel is able to express its meaningful impact on Madrid’s culture.
Food & Drink
Thompson Madrid’s three signature dining venues celebrate the passionate heritage of the city’s gastronomy while providing unique views of the cityscape. The all-day bakery and bistro, The Omar, merges mid-century modernism with industrial open-plan spaces, inviting guests to sample artisanal patisserie and seasonal, light bites. Thompson Madrid Rooftop offers guests authentic cuisine and carefully crafted cocktails alongside panoramic views of the city. When the fiesta spirit takes over, guests can follow the whispers to a hidden speakeasy-style bar, Hijos de Tomás, which is planned to open this fall. This upscale and intentionally intimate drinking den offers an inventive cocktail menu and live piano music to ease visitors into the evening.
Thompson Madrid also features six individual event spaces designed to encourage creative thinking and connection. Each space features contemporary, locally influenced interiors evoking the inspiring spirit of Madrid. With a capacity for up to 321 guests, delicious food and beverage, and state-of-the-art tech amenities, the hotel’s collection of venues is an exciting option for any kind of event, from social gatherings to bustling business functions.
On the rooftop of Thompson Madrid, guests can relax in the infinity pool, get a massage, and take in views of the city skyline. The hotel also has an open-air courtyard, fitness centre, and 24-hour boutique. As a cultural institution, Thompson Madrid offers guests exclusive access to experiences across the city, including tours, art exhibitions and concerts.
Thompson Hotels has been providing guests with unique, cultural experiences inspired by their surroundings for over 20 years, and they show no signs of slowing down. With multiple restaurants headed by top culinary names, lobbies that double as cultural epicentres, and boundary-pushing music programs, their hotels are always a hub for creative energy. Madrid is now home to the third Hyatt-branded hotel in the city, joining Hyatt Centric Gran Via Madrid and Hyatt Regency Hesperia Madrid. Thompson Vienna is also slated to open in 2024, marking the second Thompson Hotels property in Europe.
