The Best Hotel Art Collection

The Hotel With The Best Art Collection we like is the quaint Hotel Santo Domingo in Madrid, Spain. Eclectic, unpredictable and personal, this collection of the owner is placed in every nook and cranny of this lovely old building. In meeting rooms, along corridors, beside liftsand on stairways, fine art reaches out to the astonished guest. Magnificent masterpieces by Old Masters and renown Spanish painters such as Esquivel, Madrazo, Ravestein, Balaca and Palmaroli share space with startling avant-garde work by modern painters; andexquisite sculptures vie for the eye with lovingly-maintained 16th century furniture. At times garish and at times breathtakingly beautiful, this display of antiques, artefacts and art through the ages made for an unforgettable stay in 2002. Often referred to as “The Museum You Can Stay At”, this hotel is tucked away in the quiet Plaza Santo Domingo, near historic landmarks such as the Royal Place and the Opera House. It is also a strategic place from which to access Madrid’s great museums and art houses.Pix by Hotel Santo Domingo
