Hotel Quatro Puerta del Sol is all minimalist design, with a red, white and black colour scheme, tall ceilings and huge windows that let the sunlight flood in. Some of the rooms have their own terraces (Calle de Sevilla 4; from £100).

Hotel Ritz is the grand old lady of Madrid. Situated in one of the city’s most lavish buildings, close to the Buen Retiro park, its classic style and impeccable service are second to none. Not surprisingly, it’s the hotel of choice for kings, presidents and celebrities, and rooms are priced accordingly (Plaza de la Lealtad 5; from £200).

Transport
Madrid-Barajas airport is around 10 miles northeast of the city, and is served by Air Europa, BA, easyJet, Iberia and Ryanair from airports including Heathrow, Gatwick, Manchester, Edinburgh and Bristol (from £80). The Abono Transportes Turísticos pass allows unlimited travel on public transport, including the Metro, bus and regional trains (two-day passes £10). If using taxis, make sure that the meter is running before you set off.
