Santo Mauro
The Hotel Santo Mauro invites you on a journey to the XIX century, staying in the home of one of the most influential figures in Madrid society at that time, the Duke of Santo Mauro. With its French-influenced design and architecture, the hotel consists of three buildings set in the most sophisticated private garden in Madrid, with fountains and terraces shaded by ancient chestnut trees.The guest rooms are full of special details and historical references that immerse you in the past. Each public room is unique: the Red Room reflects pure French Classicism, while the oriental pieces in the Chinese Lounge recall the objects the Duke used to collect on his travels. The Wine Bar offers an extensive list of wines and small plates, while the main restaurant, housed in the Duke's former Library, offers a level of cuisine commensurate with its palatial setting.Music, fresh flowers, arts and crafts, and highly attentive service from the household staff round off this unique experience of living in a palace.

The name Santo Mauro comes from a principality in Sicily, and the title "Príncipe de Santo Mauro de Nápoles" was first granted in 1705 by Philip V. In 1890, Mariano Fernández de Henestrosa was bestowed the title of Duke of Santo Mauro as a reward for his services to the crown. The ducal family still retains ownership of the palace, acting as its stewards.

FRENCH-STYLE PALACE The Palace of Santo Mauro The Palace of Santo Mauro was built by architect Juan Bautista Lázaro between 1889 and 1902 as a residence for the Duke of Santo Mauro. As a French-style palace, the building is unique because it does not conform to the traditionalist style that was popular in this region during that time. The palace's main courtyard is curvilinear and was originally accessed by carriages, where the gorgeous iron and glass marquee at the entryway helped to protect the duke and his family on rainy days. The hotel retains its original interior design, boasting unique details such as the Modernist staircase in the entrance hall, a small oval courtyard, an old chapel, and the Duke's library.
