Set in a historic, centrally located building with a beautifully renovated interior, Hotel Montera Madrid, Curio Collection By Hilton brings a unique experience where guests can embrace the Madrid lifestyle before taking in the sights of the captivating city.
Esteemed interior designer Lázaro Rosa-Violán designed the hotel inspired by the eclectic character of the area, fusing elegant and contemporary styles with a relaxed, welcoming ambience, all within a completely remodeled neoclassical building, dating back to 1924. Located on a street named ‘Montera,’ a reference to the hat worn in traditional Spanish costume, this handcrafted item is the main inspiration for the hotel’s design. Evoking a bespoke story, it is a reoccurring theme throughout the property in artwork featured in corridors and public areas, in the iconic valet stand found in each room, door handles, the trimmings of the bed's headboards and team member uniforms.
The rooms at Hotel Montera Madrid provide guests with a tranquil space, combining traditional Castilian design with a modern twist. The neutral tones throughout the décor, the rounded mirror and picture frames, and the delicate trimmings on the headboards allude to old Spanish decorative style. The guest rooms have also been designed to ensure the property is sustainably efficient, including controlled LED lighting, energy saving window fittings which avoid heat and cold loss and reusable water bottles in the room to avoid plastic waste.
In addition to its 93 rooms, including 8 exclusive suites, the hotel includes two exciting, world-class food and beverage concepts:
- La Braserí restaurant offers typical Madrilenian cuisine with an international twist, as well as world cuisine with a touch of local flavors.
- ‘El Cielo de Chicote’ is a sister cocktail bar to the city´s famous Museo Chicote, the first cocktail bar in Spain with a history dating back to 1931. Guests can take in the stunning 360º panoramic views of the city, including Gran Via and Calle de la Montera, while enjoying a cocktail from the curated menu inspired by the Spanish expression ‘De Madrid al Cielo’ (From Madrid to the Heavens).
