Four Seasons Hotel Madrid

An urban hideaway with history

With one hand extending back to a simpler time and another pointing squarely into the future, Four Seasons Hotel Madrid sits at the crossroads of sublimity. When you walk into a grand foyer adorned in marble and bouquets of birds of paradise, you’re immediately struck by ornamental elements, classic geometric shapes and other remnants of the banks, newspaper office and social club that thrived at the address more than a century ago. Were it not for receptionists pecking away at keyboards and patrons talking on their cell phones, you’d feel as if you’d been transported to the 1890s.

The 200-room palace, which opened in the elaborate Centro Canalejas project in September 2020, has left quite the impression on Madrid. The building’s angled visage at Calle de Sevilla and Calle de Alcalá is already a landmark. Dani Brasserie is among the hottest tables in the city. It may seem unusual for a property to be considered a culinary and architectural wonder in such a short span, but Four Seasons Hotel Madrid has gracefully manipulated time since its inception.

Our Inspector's Highlights

  • You could marvel for days at how well Centro Canalejas architects were able to create a modern, multi-use destination without disturbing a foundation grounded in such historical significance. To that end, more than 16,000 original features (lamps, slate roofs, windows, etc.) were restored and reused in the luxury hotel and other parts of the property.
  • Where do we start with the rooms? The design aesthetic called for grace without gratuitousness and it’s wonderfully delivered with upholstered headboards, chrome finishes and marble. The views range from courtyard looks and residential street peeks. Of course, from the 4,305-square-foot Royal Suite situated in the hotel’s triangular point, your perspective is almost endless.
  • One of the hotel’s highpoints is its amazing art. The 2,000-piece collection consists of paintings, graphic works, photography and sculptures. In September 2021, the latter category was enhanced with the addition of bold eight-foot statues from contemporary American artist KAWS in the lobby lounge.
  • Said to be Spain’s largest sanctuary, the four-floor spa is where you schedule a restorative massage, hydrating facial or couple’s session. You can also reserve a one-hour yoga or personal training class at the fitness center.
  • While El Patio’s people-watching and Isa’s drinks stand out, Dani Brasserie is the top-floor eatery you don’t want to miss for unparalleled morning views, scrumptious tapas lunches or a lively vibe at dinnertime.

Things to Know

  • Once the main bank’s hall, the two-story lobby is a breathtaking space. It is protected overhead by stained glass provided by Casa Maumejean, a respected family that has supplied glass to churches and palaces since the 1860s.
  • In addition to the Madrid hotel — the first Four Seasons in the country — the seven-building Centro Canalejas consists of a gallery, luxury shops, 22 private residences and a food market.
  • To say Four Seasons Hotel Madrid is ideally located for visitors is a bit of an undersell. Kilometre Zero, the point where all distances in Spain are literally measured, is mere steps from the property. Additionally, most major museums, parks and the Royal Palace are less than a 20-minute walk from your room.
  • For those times your destination isn’t within walking distance, the hotel offers a red Porsche Panamera house car that can stylishly transport you wherever you need to go.
  • If you’re thinking about going for a real spin, the Four Seasons has outlined a Scenic Route road trip for the 388-mile stretch between Madrid to Lisbon. With detours to vineyards, UNESCO World Heritage Sites and more, the itinerary is perfect for travelers with a thirst for adventure.
