Outside, the remarkable gardens, designed by landscape architect Gregorio Marañón offer a tranquil place to retreat from the busy streets, while architect Ramón de Arana remodelled the hotel’s striking, landmark façade to ensure every guest feels that inimitable Rosewood sense of place.
I adored all the design details, from the beautiful in-room bar, temptingly prepared with fresh lime ready for a cocktail. I loved the fresh flowers in the room and bathroom. And the elegant yet homey touches that made the space feel so much more than just a hotel room.
