AC Santo Mauro is a part of Marriott's Autograph Collection which is known for their dedication to celebrating the most unique boutique hotels around the globe. With only 49 rooms this former 19th-century residence of Duke Santo Mauro is now one of the most popular luxury hotels in Madrid.
Located in one of the quiet streets of an exclusive, mainly residential, neighbourhood of Chamberi AC Santo Mauro is within a hailing distance from nearly all of the major attractions of Madrid. A short stroll through green avenues, lined up with sumptuous Belle Époque buildings, will get you to the most popular shopping and dinning destinations of the city. And if you're here to experience culture you will find the National Archaeological Museum and National Library to be just as close.
The atmosphere in AC Santo Mauro is as opulent and elegant as it is peaceful making it a truly unique hotel. Former ballrooms were transformed into lounges and conference rooms each of which is scrupulously decorated according to selected theme. The Chinese Room is completed with the impressive collection of antiquities from the region; The Blue Room, inspired by the ocean, is steeped in the calming splendour of all the shades of blue you can imagine; meanwhile The Red Room, a prime example of French Neoclassical style, is all about that lavish exuberance that will overwhelm every single visitor.
If ballrooms of the Palace were transformed into lounges, why not turn the library into a restaurant? La Biblioteca Restaurant is a place where you can enjoy the best of Basque and Navarrian cuisine in a charming and deluxe environment. Even better – in the summertime the restaurant takes over the garden creating a perfect space for a refreshing breakfast or a romantic dinner. In the meantime, everyone who loves their cocktails will be welcome to grab a drink in the Art-Deco-inspired Gin Bar.
A large superior was given to me and it was beautiful. All rooms of AC Santo Mauro, decorated in warm and smooth tones, offer elegant environment complimented with selected high-tech amenities. Every bedroom in the Palace has a singular design and is accompanied by a spacious fully-equipped marble bathroom.
Wellness and SPA
As appropriate to such a luxurious hotel AC Santo Mauro offers a high range of health facilities. I enjoyed each of my morning with a daily workout followed by a relaxing sauna session. Here you can find a modern fitness centre, sauna & steam room. And those who wish to combine exercise and sight-seeing will appreciate hotel's bike rental services.
Tucked away in a leafy neighbourhood of Chamberi, right next to the city centre, AC Santo Mauro is an oasis of luxury and calm. Everything from impressive ballrooms-turned-lounges to stylish bedrooms is perfected to detail to create an exceptional atmosphere. By far one of my favourite boutique hotel I've visited. If you want to treat yourself during your trip to Madrid, stay in a luxury hotel far from the tourists with a very distinct Spanish atmosphere this Marriott's gem will be a perfect choice as your hotel.
