Hotel Madrisol is situated in the heart of the historical center of Madrid, very few meters away from Puerta del Sol, and close to the most prestigious areas of Madrid.
The historical building of the hotel, with a protected facade, was built at the beginnings of the 20th century in order to accomodate the ancient Hotel Aragon, chosen by matadores to stay and dress before each corrida from the Plaza de las Ventas. In 2005 the building reopens its gates as a hotel, after being completely reformed inside.
The neighbourhood where the hotel is situated is called the District of Letters, very attended by bullfighters and amateurs years ago, which now is an area of taverns, where it's possible to taste the best tapas small dishes that accompany the drinks-, and enjoy Madrid's specific nightlife.
The District of Letters got its name from sheltering the most famous writers of the Golden Age in Spanish literature, such as Cervantes, Lope de Vega and Quevedo.
