Totem. Wonderful reception staff, bar staff, rooms, beds, showers. The location was brilliant too as you are in a smart quiet area with great shops and cafes 10 minutes from Parc retiro and another 5 to the Prado.

Firstly I will say the staff in general were excellent. I don't think they knew the area they worked in very well (they didn't know anything about local Restaurants for example) but they were pleasant and given what they were working with they were very patient. In terms of the hotel. The rooms were spacious without being massive and the...

If you want a more authentic Madrid experience, you may wish to consider Barrio Salamanca. The neoclassical buildings, abundance of small dogs, neat trees and rubbish-free sidewalks may remind you of NYC's Upper East Side. In this oasis of calm, Totem is a new, small hotel. The pros - friendly staff, comfortable beds, very clean, nice bathrooms with a big...

Staying in Barrio de Salamanca

Neighbourhood Profile
Barrio de Salamanca
Broad, tree-lined avenues with pretty streetlights frame the neighbourhood of Barrio Salamanca. With beautiful condominium buildings that make up most blocks in this area, this part of town is refined and quiet. It is also host to a few of the city's large shopping avenues, including Calle Serrano and Calle Jose Ortega y Gasset. A walk down these streets will reveal upscale chains, small boutiques, and plenty of opportunities for shopping or checking out the stylish displays. The locals here are polished and fashionable, the atmosphere is leisurely, and the lush Retiro Park on the southern border is yet another opportunity to enjoy the outdoors. A stroll through Barrio Salamanca is all about admiring the beautiful architecture, window-shopping, and people-watching in this upper-crust corner of Madrid.
