This hotel is a true tribute to its original architecture, in which its solid walls, reveal the 400 years of history of the Plaza Mayor, one of the most emblematic of Europe, while its interiors pay homage to the work of the old craftsmen, weavers, carpenters, blacksmiths and potters.
Pestana Plaza Mayor Madrid is centrally located, just a short walk from other main attractions of the capital, such as the Cathedral and the Royal Palace. It is also right next to the famous Puerta del Sol, close to Gran Vía and Castellana, with its grand museums (Prado, Reina Sofia and Thyssen), and truly continues to be the ideal stage for the most typical Madrilenian festivities.

The Spa, located on the level below the square, offers an immediate atmosphere of tranquility and total embodied relaxation, with its indoor pool and traditional vaulted brick ceilings, illuminated by a clear and tempering lighting. It also features a fully equipped treatment center, a fitness center and various other breathtaking surrounding and unique spaces, ideal for holding events.
