Palatial Hotel In the Sophisticated Heart of Madrid


Featuring a completely remodelled design, the newly-opened Barceló Emperatriz reinterprets the palace aesthetics of 19th century Madrid in the centre of one of the city’s most elegant neighbourhoods. The hotel was inspired by the life of Eugenia de Montijo, Spain’s last empress, and created to emulate her cosmopolitan, intellectual and visionary life.


Located in the centre of the Salamanca neighbourhood, next to Paseo de la Castellana and Calle Serrano, the hotel is ideal for both business and leisure trips, and is an excellent starting point for discovering this sophisticated neighbourhood, home to some of the city’s top restaurants and most prestigious boutiques.








The Barceló Emperatriz‘s B-Room concept is highlighted by completely fitted and decorated avant-garde furniture that contrasts with such classic details as Capitone armchairs, while guests also have access to cutting-edge technology including a connectivity panel, the Mini Media Hub, which connects the room’s TV with a mobile, tablet or laptop via USB connection or Bluetooth.


The Mutis restaurant is decorated with floral motifs to reflect the empress’s love of nature, and offers a select menu that includes haute cuisine as well as daily Barceló Healthy Gourmet dishes that “combine the pleasure of fine dining with healthy eating”. Upstairs, the Sky Terrace has some of the best views over Madrid.
