While the classically designed bedrooms feature neutral tones and wooden floors throughout, breakfast is served at its quintessential-Madrileño Café de Oriente, located on the main floor of the hostal.

    Located in the multicultural Lavapiés district, Artrip is decidedly urban. Housed in a traditional 1900s home, this space is now a modern and sleek guest house with 17 rooms. The decor is minimal and predominantly white, with exposed wooden beams and original windows. Artrip has a rotation of local artists’ work on show in the foyer and is only a 15-minute walk away from Madrid’s Golden Triangle of Art.

    In the early 17th century, the capital’s literary quarter, Las Letras, was home to Madrid’s first theatres. Therefore, it is entirely fitting that this theatre-inspired hotel lies in the heart of the district. True to its surroundings, each room represents a different aspect of theatre, including one that resembles a vintage dressing room and others inspired by musicals such as Les Misérables and Mamma Mia.
