This hotel is dedicated to its neighborhood, the Las Letras area of Madrid, which famed for its rich literary history. Literary quotes and references to Spanish literature can be found throughout the hotel, making it a treasure trove for bookworms and culture lovers.
Although housed in a gorgeous early 20th-century building, the interiors are bright, colorful, and extremely modern. That said, original architectural elements like corniced ceilings and traditional iron balconies honor the building’s history. Some of the rooms feature modern secluded balconies with sun loungers, and some have their own jacuzzi.
The decor in the common spaces is a similar mix of old and new, with Art Deco elements contrasting with lovely bright colors. There is a Wine Bar, a Vermouth Bar, a restaurant serving traditional Madrid cuisine, and a rooftop terrace bar. The latter is especially worth the visit, overlooking the excellent rooftop pool with incomparable views over central Madrid. The gym is small but good.
The hotel is located on Gran Via, just at the edge of the Chueca gayborhood. All of Chueca’s gay offerings are within easy walking distance, as are Madrid landmarks like Puerta del Sol and the Golden Triangle Museums. It's no surprise that Iberostar Las Letras Gran Vía is one of the most booked gay-friendly hotels in Madrid.
