Nearby Attractions

URSO is sandwiched between the neighbourhoods of Malasaña and Chueca, a 20-minute walk from the central Puerta del Sol. Malasaña was the epicentre of the Movida, the post-Franco flowering of artistic expression and alternative living, and remains Madrid’s trendiest nightlife district.

Chueca is Madrid’s gay quarter, home to hip restaurants, lively bars and some great nightclubs, as well as plenty of chic boutiques where you can give your credit card a workout.

It’s a 10-minute walk from the hotel to Madrid’s ‘Golden Triangle of Art’, where you’ll find the superb Prado, Reina Sofia and Thyssen-Bornamisza galleries. Also nearby is the grandiose Royal Palace, the lovely green space of the Retiro park and the famous fountains of the Plaza de Cibeles.


URSO’s 78 rooms and suites are infused with understated Scandi style, flooded with natural light and kitted out with eye-catching custom made furniture. All rooms have a flatscreen TV, free WiFi, Nespresso machine, mini bar and safe, and the top suites also have a large furnished terrace designed to make the most of Madrid’s plentiful sunshine.

The beautifully designed URSO Spa offers the perfect respite from the bustling city, with three treatment rooms, a hydrotherapy pool, hammam and products by Natura Bissé and Sisley Paris. There is also a gym with the latest fitness equipment.

Breakfast is served in the Conservatory, an elegant space decorated with 18th century painted wallpaper and a verdant vertical garden. The URSO Bar serves snacks and light dishes throughout the day, making use of fresh ingredients from the neighbouring Barceló market. The stylish Media Ración by Fernando Cuenllas offers a typically Madrileño menu of sharing plates and tapas.
