“This light, this sky, these clouds, they are Madrid’s most precious treasure.”
Josep Pla, Un dietario. Madrid 1921
We fall in love with Madrid (even more) in springtime. We seek for places where we can enjoy this wonderful sky and endless sunsets…
There’s a wonderful place that’s not so well known yet and thus still quiet and comfy where we enjoy the sky at its finest: The Hat’s rooftop. The Hat is a contemporary and charming hostel that opened just one year ago. It’s a hidden gem in a little street near the Plaza Mayor really worth discovering.
This hostel is located in a fantastic building from the XIX century that has been delicately remodelled and decorated in a simple, contemporary style. It’s definitely one of the most cool places to stay while visiting Madrid.
“There’s always a place to discover, a person to meet and a spot to remember”, with this motto: how not falling in love? A whole claim for a place that it’s more of a meeting point rather than a place for just sleeping. Bright and cozy, here there’s always something interesting happening so it invites to stay for both locals and visitors.
And above all, we absolutely love the rooftop, a terrace from where to sight La Latina’s old roofs at sunset. There are many cool rooftops in luxurious hotels in Madrid, but in our opinion most of them are extremely expensive and have quite a fake atmosphere. In this one, however, anyone can feel comfortable, it´s a quiet and unpretencious place where you can have a drink for a reasonable price, eat or even enjoy an acoustic show…
Every Wednesday there’s a cool event called “Cenas en las alturas” (“Dinners at the top”), a meeting that will take place once a week and where 40 people will enjoy a dinner by the amazing chefs of TriCiClo.
The terrace is open to public everyday, from Monday to Friday from 6 pm, and on weekends the whole day until midnight. It’s also avalaible for events and private parties.
