Telegraph - The five-star Urban livens up a minimalist vibe with astounding artworks from Papua New Guinea and the Far East. As well as a restaurant and bar with food by two of Spain’s top chefs, the hotel has a downtown location that is handy for the major museums, tapas bars and shops.
Conde Nast - Opened as a hotel in 2005, this avant-garde building in the Austrias Madrid neighborhood has a "chic and cool" contemporary glass-and-steel design. Sleek rooms contrast East and West, with European leather headboards, eleventh-century Khmer statues, and Buddhist pieces from the Ch’in Dynasty.
The Culture Trip - Art is a central theme throughout, with pieces decorating the rooms, making it seem like you’re sleeping in a swanky gallery. Dining options are just as high-end; the Michelin-starred Cebo restaurant does a modern take on Mediterranean cuisine, while Glass Mar is a seafood restaurant with a menu designed by chef, Angel Leon.
NY Times - It's a five-minute walk to the Thyssen-Bornemisza art museum and about 10 to the Prado. And the lively Santa Ana neighborhood, with its scores of restaurants and old-fashioned tapas bars, is just around the corner.
