Villa Magna

Discreet luxury in the Spanish capital

Two impressive white stones welcome you into the lobby of Villa Magna. They are minerals found in the depths of the South China Sea, but were bought from a London antiques dealer. It’s just a teaser of the many jewels hidden inside Villa Magna’s rooms and hallways, from delicate porcelain to handcrafted furniture.

Opened in 1972, the stylish hotel has experienced a second life since its reopening in 2009, after a change in ownership and an extensive renovation. A drab concrete exterior belies the modern, sumptuous decor found within its walls. Public spaces boldly mix styles with empire chairs and Chinese screens. But rooms take on a more soothing aesthetic with a palette of grays and deep purples.

From socialites to football players, and top business executives to Middle Eastern moguls and their families, Villa Magna draws in all sorts of guests seeking modern luxury.
