« De Madrid al Cielo ». For Madrilenos, as the inhabitants of the Spanish capital are called, this proverb signifies that once you’ve seen Madrid, only Paradise can possibly compare to its splendor.
The Royal City combines the past, present and future. Its rich history is visible at every street corner through its majestic architecture which prestigious modern architects including Jean Nouvel, Richard Rogers and Rafael Moneo have taken their inspiration.
Firmly anchored in the present, Madrid is a city that never sleeps, where the local population lives every moment to the fullest. Both day and night, the streets are bustling with activity thanks to the warmth and cosmopolitannature of the inhabitants. Madrid continues to modernize a bit more every day and is a major player in the Europe of tomorrow.
The famous Prado, Reina Sofia and Thyssen museums form a “golden triangle” in the heart of which we find works by Spanish masters including Goya, Picasso and Velasquez alongside masterpieces by Rembrandt and Caravaggio among others. Madrid has one of the largest collections of paintings in the world.
With an attractive business center, a rich cultural life and a gentle climate all year round, it’s no wonder why so many millions of visitors have succumbed to the charm of this wonderful capital city in the heart of Spain.
A unique hotel
With its sumptuous architecture and elegant décor, “Unico” (Unique) is by far the best word to describe this exceptional establishment. Located in a 19th century palace, the Unico is one of Madrid’s most beautiful hotels. Situated in the chic Salamanca quarter, its elegant, sober and imposing façade conceals a totally contemporary and refined boutique hotel.
Inside the building, the grand staircase and the rich wall mosaics set the tone for this temple of luxury. Creations by Patricia Urquiola, Hayon, Miguel Mila and Jacinto Moros make the Unico a chic, tasteful and trendy address.
Jacinto Moros’ huge, stunning crimson ribbon sculpture is the centerpiece of the hotel’s grand staircase. The floors are in mosaic in the halls as well as the restaurant. The warm and sober gray and ecru tones in the hotel’s 44 rooms create an immediate sensation of comfort. The linen, velvet, silk and flannel fabrics are the work of Evans & Brown, and the chairs are by Karom Rashid. In addition to all this aesthetic luxury, the rooms are equipped with the very latest in high tech equipment.
After a long day visiting the museums and shopping in the city’s luxury boutiques, guests can choose between the spa, a drink in the library or relaxing in the peace and quiet of the Unico’s vast garden, before dining at the two star Michelin guide restaurant run by chef Ramon Freixa whose cuisine has been described as a “gastronomic experience.”
The Hotel Unico owes its uniqueness to its having reinvented daily luxury with elegance and simplicity.
The lighting system was created by the use of « Josephine » lamps designed by Jaime Hayon for Metalarte and the « Estadio » hall lamps by Miguel Mila for Santa & Cole.
