Spain: Independent boutique hospitality brand The Pavilions Hotels & Resorts has opened The Pavilions Madrid, its first property in Spain.
The property is the third location for the brand portfolio in Europe. It is a four-star hotel which offers guests “the unique experience of staying in an art gallery with an impressive selection of works by acclaimed local artists adorning the common spaces, guest rooms and suites”.
The Pavilions Madrid has partnered with the city’s Alvaro Alcazar Gallery, and offers an exhibition space where guests can enjoy contemporary art pieces, some of them specially created for the hotel, and which are also available for purchase. Select pieces include works by high profile artists Rafael Canogar and Guillem Nadal.
The Pavilions Madrid is located on Amador de los Ríos Street, next to Plaza de Colón and near Paseo de la Castellana, in the Chamberi neighbourhood.
“Madrid is a natural match for The Pavilions brand. It’s an incredible city filled with style and a passion for the active discovery of art and culture,” said Gordon Oldham, founder and CEO of The Pavilions Hotels & Resorts. “We are delighted to open here as we introduce our unique Asian-inspired hospitality to guests, and extend the experience of romance, art, culture and adventure we have been sharing for more than 17 years in our other properties around the world.”
The property underwent intense refurbishment with more than US$1 million invested in the project. The renovation was carried out by Constructora Zimenta, with designs created by Rome-based Studio Marincola Architects.
The Pavilions Madrid offers 25 rooms and three suites with terraces.
