The 6 Best Hotels on the Paseo del Prado, Madrid

With the Renia Sofia and El Guernika at one end and CentroCentro at the other, the Paseo del Prado is a great place to stay if one of the reasons you’re in Madrid is to visit the museums. And many of the best hotels on the Paseo del Prado all have charming views of the street. Plus you’re close to a wealth of tapas bars, cafes and restaurants, and Gran Vía with its shopping and entertainment.

As well as the Renia Sofia and the CentroCentro, the other museums on the Paseo del Prado are the Thyssen-Bornemizsa, which is an incredible private art collection with work from the medieval period to the 21st century, the Prado Museum, which has a fantastic collection of Flemish and Spanish art, Spain’s Maritime Museum, a Decorative Arts museum, the Caixa Forum which is a relatively new museum and art centre with lots on for families, and the Botanical gardens. The boulevard itself is also decorated with monuments, impressive fountains and landscaped grounds.

Plus it’s tree-lined and elegant. And you’re close to Retiro Park and the Barrio de Las Letras, which is particular well known for its tapas bars.
