Overview


Insider Tip

Just 1.5 kilometers from the hotel is the fabulous Filmoteca Nacional (National Film Academy) - where a small fee wins entrance to a rich choice of art house cinema, including matinee performances and original language versions. Less high-brow, just 200 meters from the hotel, guests can explore the Hertas district, and its maze of tapas bars.
