A naughty bear, which looks out from under a table to receive the guest, is the mascot of the central hotel, The Walt Madrid. An old ruined hostel which has reopened its doors completely renovated. This one, like his two older brothers in Paris -Le Walt and Le Marquis- It is a family project in which its owners, the marriage formed by Georges Chauve and Pamela Walt, and their two children have put soul, heart and life. He, French, with extensive experience in the hospitality sector and she, a Californian, from a family of wine growers, have been traveling the world for more than 20 years with a single objective: to open, restructure and successfully reposition hotel businesses in crisis.
The new design of hotel The Walt Madrid It is the work of Italian architect Federico Frasson, whose fresh ideas excited their owners. He, together with the Spanish team of Aroca Arquitectos, were responsible for completing the project in just 10 months. The charm of its entrance, with the wooden vaulted ceiling was respected, although it was decided to update it in white and decorate it with a neon light created for the occasion by Frasson.
As for the interior, it was conceived as a Boutique hotel with 30 cozy rooms, bright and spacious spread over five floors. All of them have a warm wooden floor and bold strokes of color (different in each room) in headboards, furniture and accessories in a classic chic style. The furniture stands out for its functionality and, above all, for its cheerful color, where yellow is omnipresent: at the reception, corridors or terraces, public and private, that distil some Andalusian patio air. Perhaps because the initial idea of George and Pamela was to buy a hotel in the South, although they ended up in the center. C'est la vie!
