19th Century Spanish Hotel on the Busiest Street in Madrid

A Pool With a View

Hotel Emperador is a four-star luxury hotel in the centre of Madrid. This historic building is reminiscent of Imperial Spain. The best feature is the full-sized rooftop swimming pool with spectacular city views over Gran Via, Palacio Real, and Almudena Cathedral. Here, you can relax with delicious cocktails, salads, and gourmet sandwiches at the seasonal Roof Garden Bar & Restaurant. The lobby also serves light snacks and drinks as well as a buffet breakfast at an extra charge. A fitness centre is on site, as well as a sauna and beauty salon offering hair services, massages, and aesthetic treatments. 

Classic Comfort and an Exclusive Club

Hotel Emperador has 232 rooms and suites with classic 19th century Spanish decor. The rooms have satellite TV and a desk. Wi-Fi is available for free in the lobby. To avoid the street noise, ask for a room higher up. Front-facing rooms have fantastic street views, while ones at the back face other buildings, but can be quieter. Get the Premium View room for great views over the Palacio Real. Those who reserve a Club Room or a suite gain access to the exclusive Club Emperador, a secluded room with a relaxed and refined ambiance for VIP guests.

The Street That Never Sleeps

Gran Via is the busiest and liveliest street in Madrid. Aside from shopping and dining, there are many clubs here where people party until 5-7 a.m. every day. You are steps away from the alternative Malasaña area where you can relax in a café or restaurant on Calle del Pez, Calle Manuela Malasaña, or Plaza Dos de Mayo. There are also many clubs, most playing rock and pop music. Within a 10-minute walk you can visit many tourist sites, such as the Puerta del Sol, Plaza Mayor, and Palacio Real de Madrid. A short metro ride away is the Golden Triangle, with the most important art museums in Madrid: the Museo del Prado, Museo Thyssen-Bornemisza, and El Reina Sofia.

The Bottom Line

Featuring a business centre with the latest technology and 10 versatile event rooms, Hotel Emperador is great for executive and special occasion travellers. Everything you need is at your fingertips with an accommodating concierge who can help you book activities, babysit, or arrange transportation. Whether you are here on business or leisure, Hotel Emperador is the perfect base for your city escape.

Expert Reviews
DK Eyewitness
The Emperador is famous for its outdoor rooftop pool, open during summer months, with spectacular views of Madrid’s skyline.
Time Out
While the traffic speeds by on the Gran Vía outside, the Emperador has to deal with its own constant flow of student groups and tourists.
The mid-range Emperador Hotel sits at the intersection of two of Madrid's busiest streets with plenty of food, shopping, theater, music, and tourist destinations within easy walking distance
