Quite possible one of the most elegant and sophisticated boutique hotels in Spain if not, further afield. The Unico Madrid is located in the chicest part of the city on Madrid’s ‘Golden Mile’ and offers guests a two Michelin star restaurant from Ramon Freixa.
The Único Madrid
Originally a 19th century palace which was converted to a hotel a few years ago, the building boasts stunning high ceilings, an abundance of natural daylight from the floor to ceiling windows and a private inner garden-courtyard. Let us know if you find the original fish tap which was used for the horse’s water!
On arrival, guests are shown to the lounge style reception area and just like the other Unico hotels, are offered a glass of fizzling Cava whilst the team organise check in. There are stunning mosaic floors in sharp black, grey and white and the original staircase is filled with a striking red sculpture which cascades from the top to the bottom floor, adding seriously to the Wow.
Food Glorious Food
Green mustard ice cream anyone? Ramón Freixa Madrid, has quickly become a “must” restaurant experience in the city, having been awarded 2 Michelin stars and named “Best Restaurant in Madrid” at the prestigious Madrid Fusión event. Such distinctions honour the exceptional presentation, sophisticated table service, an extensive wine list, and high quality with an ongoing quest for excellence … the 8 course tasting menu is a Must and not just for the La Croix china!
Ramon Freixa also orchestrates Único’s superb signature breakfasts. For those guests also slightly puckish during the day, the team serve sandwiches and pasties in the Lounge at 11am.
Time for Bed
Hotel Unico offers 44 bedrooms and 6 suites. And all are equally cool, have a residential feel with deep warm tones from the striking mahogany headboards and the slate grey wood walls, all complimented by the soft, crisp white bedding.
Each bedroom offers king sized beds, comfortable working space with free high speed Wi-Fi and state-of-the-art in-room entertainment, flat-screen LCD TV, fully equipped Mini Bar, Nespresso Coffee machine, Tea & Infusions set, a large rainfall shower, luxurious designer amenities and daily turndown service (including complimentary water).
