Housed within a 1852 heritage palace building in the heart of Madrid, luxury boutique hotel CoolRooms Atocha is steps away from all major attractions of the city. The location within the city is also known as the District of Letters a bohemian, yet most authentic quarter of the Spanish capital.
A stone’s throw from the city’s major monuments, the Reina Sofia Museum, the Thyssen-Bornemisza Museum, the Prado Museum, the famous Plaza Mayor and the iconic Gran Vía, CoolRooms Atocha equally attracts locals patrons and those who reside at the hotel.
Contemporary and sophisticated, yet with a classic twist, CoolRooms Atocha features a spectacular entrance watched over by the sculpture of the god Hermes. The 7 meters high entrance, which used to be a passage for horses carriages, now leads to a secret pool garden.
The architectural transformation has carefully maintained all of the exquisite elements, which exude an air of genuine warmth and cozyness. Rooms and suites are among the largest in Madrid among all 5 star ranked hotels. Among them, two Coolsuites feature their outdoor jacuzzi and their own private terrace with beautiful views on Madrid skyline. You will not only be impressed by the room size but also by the oversized bathrooms. The quality of furnishings and finishes are flawless!
The carefully ”hidden” pool within the courtyard invites guests to the El patio de Atocha Restaurant which is an ideal fusion between traditional dishes and contemporary cuisine. And all of it with the best seasonal product and very little handling, combining traditional techniques with current concepts such as slow food or ecological kitchen. Service is of the highest standards – personalised, genuine and warm.
Similarly to the serenity of the room which overlook the swimming pool. the terrace is an oasis of calm in the center of Madrid, with a fountain whose sound becomes the soundtrack of the gastronomic experience. On Sundays you cannot miss the Brunch The dining room is an intimate and cozy space where one can taste the hotel recipes.
Despite the sheer size of the hotel, expect to be taken by surprise with staff going out of their way to please you. Concierge has a series of special partnerships and packages to recreate exceptional experience – Harley Davidson, Bentley, Golf, photography and wine tasting.
