Boutique beginnings in Madrid


According to Antonio Obrador, the designer, architect and mastermind behind Hot List favourite Cap Rocat in the Balearics, we no longer have to make the tough choice between five-star and boutique in Madrid: his new hotel, URSO, offers us both.

Located in the middle of the city, yet also cunningly away from the main tourist drags, the early 20th-century building appears impressively neo-classical and traditional from the outside, while harbouring modish interiors and artful restorations on the inside.

‘It is about incorporating products that better reflect the setting of the hotel without sacrificing on quality or personality,’ Antonio says of his design vision, which manifests itself in sleek marble and honey-toned wood.
