Right in the heart of the art triangle formed by the most important museums in the city, El Prado Museum, Reina Sofía National Art Museum and Thyssen-Bornemisza Museum, it has one of the most authentic architectural styles in the old centre of Madrid and in the Barrio de las Letras literary quarter.
The classic style building, which was built in the 80s, was successfully adapted to the typical style in the neighbourhood. Its architect, Fernando Chueca Goitia, was also responsible for extending the El Prado Museum and the La Almudena Cathedral, among other works. The construction involved luxurious materials such as marble, stone marquetry, and maple root inlays and woods. A recent refurbishment combined contemporary elements to turn it into a luxury hotel.
The Villa Real Hotel 5* in the centre of Madrid has 115 luxury rooms and suites, wedding reception rooms, meeting rooms and function rooms, a gym, car park and the East 47 Restaurant & Cocktail Bar, as well as access (summer only) to the terrace and pool of the Urban Hotel only a few metres away.
