Hotel Overview

Sense of Place

In Salamanca, an exclusive quarter in northern Madrid.

Rooms at Hotel Unico

An Art Deco style pervades the rooms at this luxury hotel, with monochrome palettes, mirrored furnishings and high ceilings. Go for a room facing the courtyard or garden; the king rooms are particularly peaceful. Or go all out with the Grand Suite, with a private lounge and Jacuzzi.

Food & Drink

The restaurant is a beguiling, twice-starred, tantalising spot – you absolutely must experience it. Ramon Freixa is renowned for his bizarre but brilliant creations; like duck hamburgers with green mustard ice cream, for example. The setting is spectacular, with an enormous mirror on the ceiling and a hot pink panorama of Gran Via on one wall. Aside from this restaurant, you can also munch on tapas in the Fora Garden Bar.


The hotel has a fitness centre and a Wellness Suite, where guests can succumb to a relaxing massage or indulge in beauty treatments by Natura Bissé

Activities at Hotel Unico
