NH Hotels converts Madrid mansion into 5-star hotel


NH Hotels has converted an impressive nineteenth century mansion in the arts district of Madrid as part of ambitious renovation plans.


The careful renovation has managed to recover the building which was originally built in 1808 by Jorge Duran, and which was designed in part by Juan de Villanueva, who designed the Prado Museum.


The new NH Palacio de Tepa, is a luxury five-star hotel located in a privileged position on the calle de San Sebastian with access to the calle Atocha and the Plaza del Angel, and is surrounded by the active bohemian atmosphere of the Arts District with its galleries, boutiques, cafes, jazz bars and taverns, and the hustle and bustle of the calle Huertas.


The new NH Palacio de Tepa has 84 rooms which have been decorated by the architecture and design studio of Ramon Esteve in easy greys and beiges to play with the ever-present light which flows in through the large windows and skylights especially throughout the penthouse rooms.


Different interior decoration options are available across the hotel room types, with the rooms on the fifth floor providing a particularly welcoming atmosphere with their mansard roofs and minimalist decoration.


In addition to the Premium rooms on the two corners of the second floor of the building, many of the rooms are duplex suites and all the rooms have views of the streets and squares of the district, which have also been renovated recently.


Lighting is the main feature of the hotel which has been carefully renovated respecting the original domes of the building and its typical balconies. Two whitewashed interior patios, renovated in accordance with their former use as "corrala" yards, allow light to come in through the interior corridors of the hotel.


The hotel also offers several premium services including a butler service, pampering menu, a 'VIP desk' and private transfer.
