Rosewood Villa Magna

Madrid’s stylish mid-century-modern oasis

Perched along Madrid’s posh Paseo de la Castellana, Rosewood Villa Magna exudes an air of understated luxury more akin to a prestigious social club than a trendy hotel. And that’s exactly why Rosewood’s following of high-end clientele flocks to the Salamanca address.

Following an extensive renovation, the former Villa Magna Hotel reopened in late 2021 as Rosewood Villa Magna, a chic addition to the luxury hotel brand’s internationally renowned portfolio. First impressions matter in this high-end neighborhood, and the hotel’s refreshed lobby featuring a roaring fireplace, stained-glass-backed spiral staircase and a custom embroidered piece by British textile artist Jacky Puzey perfectly blends the building’s aristocratic history with modern sensibilities.

But this retreat is far from all style and no substance. Simply step inside to discover a serene spa, an array of gastronomic delights and top-notch service.

Our Inspector's Highlights

  • As evidenced by the hotel’s name, Rosewood Villa Magna attempts to evoke the feel of a chic private villa. Secluded nooks and crannies for relaxing and low-lit interiors create a cozy, home-away-from-home vibe — a welcome change of pace from the bustle of Madrid city life.
  • The luxury hotel’s prestigious address along the tree-lined Paseo de la Castellana puts you easily within arm’s reach of the Golden Triangle of art museums, Retiro Park, the Serrano shopping district and more Madrid hot spots. Anything further afield can be reached by taxi or the property’s Bentley chauffeur service.
  • Helmed by decorated executive chef Jesús Sánchez, Amós Restaurant features elevated Cantabrian cuisine from Spain’s northern coast. The mouthwatering menu can be enjoyed à la carte, but we highly suggest the tasting menu complete with a flight of tapas starters for the most flavorful experience.
  • Sense, A Rosewood Spa provides a unique sense of place with a thoughtful treatment menu inspired by the Iberian Peninsula’s Spanish and Arabic roots. Rituals feature local botanicals traditionally used for healing, including Spanish bay leaves, Mediterranean lavender and orange blossom.
  • The 101 rooms, 51 suites and two rooftop houses are all thoughtfully appointed with Maison Caulières bath amenities, luxe Rivolta Carmignani linens, Nespresso machines, French Palais des Thés tea and mini-bars stocked with all the essentials for making Negronis, Old Fashioneds and gin and tonics.

The Look

  • Rosewood Villa Magna’s 2021 refresh was overseen by Spanish architect Ramón de Arana, who transformed the gray exterior into a mid-century masterpiece.
  • The Madrid hotel is a haven for art lovers, with more than 400 pieces by 43 international artists on display. Spend some time exploring and admiring the lobby, bar and other public spaces.
  • Understated yet stylish interiors feature teal walls and towering floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking a lush courtyard. Plush, neutral-toned armchairs and sofas invite you to unwind in front of the fire after a long day of sightseeing.
  • Bar Tarde.O is cheekily decorated with real and whimsical imagined portraits of the property’s former residents — the luxury hotel was built atop the site of the 19th-century Palace Anglada, home of some of Madrid’s social elite.
  • Behind the reception desk is an enormous golden tapestry that looks like an antique. This embroidered piece was actually created for the hotel by British textile artist Jacky Puzey as an homage to the property’s opulent 19th-century roots.
