Bottom Line

The three-and-a-half-pearl Madrid Lagasca has a great location right in the heart of upscale Salamanca neighborhood, amid world-class shopping and great restaurants. Similar to other NH hotels dotted around Madrid, this one has smart decor and limited amenities that attract an even mix of business and leisure travelers. The 100 rooms are modern and minimalist, outfitted with flat-screen TVs, minibars, safes, and hairdryers. However, many are on the small side and interior-facing rooms can be dark. Features include a buffet breakfast, bar serving drinks and light meals, a 24-hour gym with minimal equipment, and free property-wide Wi-Fi. It’s a 20-minute subway journey to the town center by Metro, so travelers wanting a more central location might prefer the Petit Palace Plaza del Carmen.

Scene

Bright, smartly decorated hotel with business and leisure guests

The NH Madrid Lagasca is a smartly decorated hotel that renovated all of its spaces between 2014 and 2016. The look throughout is minimalist and polished, with mostly neutral tones and some fun accents in public spaces. For instance, the lobby has a living room-like area with a velvet couch and bookshelf lined with knickknacks and novels, plus white wall panels with freeform cutouts that provide a peek into the adjacent bar. The chic bar area has hexagonal mosaic tiling and wall hangings, green-cushioned bar stools, and mustard-yellow chairs. The breakfast room has a pleasant amount of greenery and brass light fixtures that hang over wood tables next to green and red suede chairs. This property attracts a pretty even mix of business travelers with work in the area, and tourists looking to stay in one of Madrid’s poshest districts.

Location

In the heart of upscale Salamanca neighborhood, within walking distance of great shopping

The NH Lagasca is located right in the heart of Salamanca neighborhood, one of the nicest and most upscale areas in Madrid. There are myriad shops ranging from high-end boutiques to international clothing chains such as H&M and Zara a few minutes from the hotel, and restaurants for all budgets can be found in the immediate neighborhood. Attractions such as El Prado Museum, Retiro Park, the National Library, and Puerta de Alcala can be reached on foot, but for longer distances, there are two subway stops and several bus lines a couple of blocks from the property. This is a quiet area at night, but nightlife in the Alonso Martinez and Chueca areas is an easy walk away.

Rooms

Simple but modern, well-kept rooms in mostly neutral tones

The 100 rooms here are all fairly simple, but thanks to renovations in 2014-15, they're modern, minimalist, and well-kept. Expect a mostly gray-scale color scheme, with pops of blue in armchairs and bed runners. Wooden floors, white wood furniture, and gray headboards are polished, and some rooms have accents walls with beige stripes. Unfortunately, rooms are generally on the small side and those facing the interior can be dark. Additionally, only four rooms have furnished terraces -- though these are lovely. Standard amenities include comfy beds, desks and chairs, air-conditioning, and flat-screen TV with cable, as well as minibars and closets with safes. Upgraded units add sitting areas and Nespresso coffee machines. Bathrooms have either plain beige tiling or attractive black tiling with black-and-white photo murals of an atrium. They're either outfitted with shower/tub combos or walk-in showers, alongside NH-brand toiletries and hairdryers.

Features

Modern gym, buffet breakfasts, and a bar

As typical for a city hotel, the NH Madrid Lagasca is somewhat light on features. There are no pool or spa, but a small, decently equipped gym has stationary bikes, treadmills, free weights, and a multipurpose weight machine. Dining-wise, the hotel serves an expansive buffet breakfast, which is included in some rates. By night, the breakfast room is occupied by an upscale restaurant serving traditional Spanish tapas and larger meals. Guests can grab light meals and a drink at the chic bar off the lobby. Free Wi-Fi is accessible throughout the hotel.
