Rooms 44 /Architecture Aurelio Rubio /Interior Design Maria José Cabré, Pilar García-Nieto /The Original Pau Guardans
Leaving behind the bustle of Madrid's Golden Mile and entering the tranquil 19th-century palace that houses Hotel Único Madrid, you're immediately filled with a sense of peace. Behind the hotel’s elegant white façade, a majestic staircase, marble mosaic floors, high ceilings, and huge windows fuse together perfectly to preserve the ambiance of the private noble home the building once was. Now, after an all-encompassing redesign, it's back as an indulgent city retreat right in the heart of Salamanca—one of Madrid's wealthiest districts. The beating heart of the hotel is the tranquil garden, where guests come to relax and enjoy a drink after a busy day of visiting the boutique shops, museums, and lush parks that surround this one-of-a-kind, 44-room property, which just so happens to also be the home of a two-Michelin-starred chef—just what you’d expect here in Salamanca, where nothing stands between you and total relaxation.

The 44 rooms and suites range from 25 to 56 square meters, and all offer a king-size bed, with the 28-square-meter Deluxe Room also offering the option of twin beds. While each guestroom features a bathroom with a bathtub, the Deluxe Room, the 32-square-meter Deluxe King Garden, the 38-square-meter Junior Suite, and the 56-square-meter Grand Suite also offer a shower, and the latter two boast hydro-massage bathtubs. Many guestrooms also offer balconies, lounge areas, and working desks.
There are entrepreneurs who ride trends and there are those who drive them. The Barcelona-bred hotelier Pau Guardans is decidedly of the latter kind. A veteran in the hotel business, he helped introduce design into the Spanish hospitality sector. In 2001, he struck out on his own with Único Hotels. Five years later Guardans introduced Único’s inaugural property, the Grand Hotel Central, once again driving the market into the future, but this time by looking toward the past with a 1920s-era office tower in Barcelona’s medieval El Born neighborhood. Hotels, says Guardans, should function as ‘engines of local communities’, a principle that has governed his second and third properties: the Hotel Único, in Madrid, which opened in 2008 and The Principal Madrid in 2015, respectively. Just being state-of-the-art wasn’t enough for Guardans; both hotels aim to connect guests with the rich local cultures at their doorsteps.
In addition to the wide variety of shops, boutiques, restaurants, and bars concentrated in the “Golden Mile”, the Recoletos neighborhood—in the Salamanca district—also plays host to an abundance of impressive architecture and plenty of entertainment right in Madrid’s center.
