MADRID NH Hoteles has converted an impressive 19th century mansion in the arts district of Madrid into a 5-star hotel.
The renovation of the building, originally built in 1808 by Jorge Duran and designed by Juan de Villanueva, who designed the Prado Museum, brings to life 84 luxury guestrooms.
The new NH Palacio de Tepa is designed by the firm Ramon Esteve in grays and beiges, meant to play with the light that flows through the large windows and skylights, especially throughout the penthouse rooms. Different interior design options exist across room types, with guestrooms on the fifth floor featuring mansard roofs and minimalist decoration.
Lighting is the main feature of the hotel that has been carefully renovated, respecting the original domes of the building and its typical balconies. Two whitewashed interior patios, renovated in accordance with their former use as “corrala” yards, allow light to come in through the interior corridors of the hotel.
