Having just celebrated its centenary, number 21 of Madrid’s Gran Via is now home to one of the most unusual hotels of the NH Collection premium brand: NH Collection Gran Vía. One of the most characteristic buildings of the iconic avenue has been reborn as an exciting and unforgettable hotel for guests to enjoy.
Sleek and modern, the new hotel is a great example of how history, location, design and excellence can be combined to create a one-of-a-kind hotel. With a total of 94 rooms filled with luxury amenities, the property also offers a duo of foodie offerings.
Hungry guests can dine at the striking 360-degree rooftop terrace and restaurant, Picalagartos. Thanks to its position, the rooftop offers one of the most beautiful views of Gran Vía and the rest of the city. On the 9th floor, pay a visit to the exclusive Tanqueray Sky Garden, an urban garden in the centre of Madrid where visitors can enjoy fantastic cocktails and the perfect gin and tonic.
Led by Madrid chef Javier Muñoz-Calero, this new space is a tribute to Spanish cuisine and seasonal produce. Visitors to the restaurant can enjoy Callos a la Madrileña with Catalan Santa Pau Beans, Bravas Montera, or Fried baby squid tentacles with black garlic alioli, as well as gastronomic interpretations of the classics of Madrid cuisine and dishes such as Candied Artichokes and Ibérico Ham pieces or Charolais topside dry-aged over 35 days with Guernica peppers.
About the property
Known as Gran Vía 21, this architectural gem was part of the first section of the Madrid Gran Vía project. The work of architects Julio Martínez Zapata and José López Sallaberry (who is also the architect responsible for the Casino de Madrid), its construction as housing for Tomás Allende began in 1915. Finally, this beautiful Neo-Baroque style building opened its doors exactly one hundred years ago, in 1918.
Since then it has never ceased to surprise thanks to its beauty and location, on the corner with Calle Montera, as one of the most impressive buildings in the Gran Vía. Located on what is known as Madrid’s Broadway, Gran Via is close to the best musicals, theatres and – ideal for the fashionistas- one of the best shopping areas in Madrid
The hotel offers an elegant and welcoming setting with interiors designed by Mercedes Isasa, Estudio TBC. The interior designer is responsible for giving the hotel its personality, from the public areas to the rooms and the restaurant through 50s inspired decor and a fusion of the purest Spanish tradition with avant-garde design.
