Hotel Hospes Puerta de Alcalá – Review

The Hospes Puerta de Alcalá is housed within an elegant building that dates back to 1883.

The Hospes Puerta de Alcalá is an elegant establishment near the Puerta de Alcalá, in the Salamanca neighborhood of Madrid. The hotel enjoys amazing views of Retiro park and offers guests free access to the Bodyna SPA.



Rooms at the Hospes Puerta de Alcala are spacious and decorated in a modern vintage style. The beds are large and very comfortable, with metallic side tables. Most rooms have wooden floors, that contrast with other chich details like comfortable white chairs and small sofas. 

The bathrooms are also large, decorated with stylish tiles, and boast large bathtubs and walking showers. There is no door, something to bear in mind if you are concerned with privacy. 

The rooms at the Hospes Puerta de Alcalá are elegant and all are equipped with flat-screen TV, free WIFI and robe and slippers.


The Bodyna spa has 4 different treatment rooms, a soundproof relaxation area, a Hammam, a full gym and a small relaxation pool.

The Malvar restaurant has an amazing terrace that looks out at the Puerta de Alcalá. Guests can also enjoy a relaxing drink at the Chill Out patio.

The hotel also boasts a gym and offers bicycle renting, a very good idea bearing in mind the proximity of the Rrtiro park. 


The Hospes Puerta de Alcalá is located in front of the famous Alcala Gate, Madrid´s most famous Gate. The hotel is also in front of El Retiro Park, the green lung at the heart of Madrid and which boasts a lake, a crystal palace, and many romantic spots.  

The Prado and Reina Sofía museums are just a few meters from the hotel as is Cibeles square and Madrid City hall famous building. 

The Hospes offers the best compromise possible to stay in Madrid: Very close to some of the city of Madrid top venues, but in a residential area where locals live and you get a feeling of staying at the city, and not just at a touristic area. 

Overall Review

The Hospes Puerta de Alcala is one of our favorite hotels in Madrid. The building is fantastic and the location cannot be better; right in front of two of Madrid´s top icons: Puerta de Alcala and the Retiro park.

The style of the hotel could be defined as modern vintage. It respects certain elements of the traditional building, but provides with an overall modern look. 

Our favorite items at this hotel are the swiming pool and the spa center. 

This hotel is perfect for couples seeking a romantic stay in Madrid, but it can also be excellent for families that want to ensure a green area is close to their hotel and that also want to have the option to enjoy the rare gem of a swimming pool at the heart of Madrid.
