Atocha Hotel Madrid, Tapestry Collection by Hilton
Atocha Hotel Madrid Opens Doors To Guests, Marking The Brand’s Debut In Europe
Now open – 46 Rooms
Embracing the distinct culture of their local neighbourhoods, the hotel joins a global portfolio of almost 60 unique Tapestry Collection by Hilton properties, providing the perfect base for travellers looking for the authentic experience of an independent hotel. In the coming months, the brand will continue its European expansion with the opening of Hotel Camille Paris Gare de Lyon, Le Belgrand Hotel Paris Champs Elysees, Se Catedral Hotel Porto and The Samuel Ryder Hotel St Albans.
Steeped in local history, the 46-room Atocha Hotel Madrid, which is now open, takes its inspiration from esparto - or atocha - grass weaving - a technique traditionally used for basketry in southern Spain. Esparto merchandise formerly made its entry into the city via nearby Madrid Atocha railway station - historically the "Southern Gate" of Madrid. In a nod to its heritage, Atocha Hotel Madrid features nature-inspired décor and rooms decked out with rattan furniture, and upon arrival, guests receive a handmade and personalised esparto plant gift.
The hotel is the perfect home away from home for guests keen to explore Spain's capital, located just a short walk from some of the most famous landmarks in Spain, including the museums that form Madrid's Golden Triangle of Art - the Museo del Prado, Museo Thyssen-Bornemisza and Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofía. Fans of historical architecture will appreciate nearby Palacio de Cristal, located in the middle of Buen Retiro Park, Plaza Mayor and the Royal Palace of Madrid.
