Today we are an original and design hotel, but in every stone of the Posada del Dragón you can feel the tradition of a history that goes back to the times of the Catholic Monarchs.
The walls still tell stories of merchants, swordsmen and squires of the 16th century and below the floors you can see how the old Christian city wall crosses the hotel from side to side.
We know you are eager to ask us why we are named after the mythical stone dragon that guarded the Moorish Gate.
We don’t just offer you a room, we offer you a piece of Madrid’s history, for you to use as a starting point for your own story.
This is your home…you provide the rest.
We are waiting for you right in the centre of Madrid in the district of La Latina, just 100 metres from Plaza Mayor and 700 metres from Puerta del Sol.
We are also only 15 minutes from the Prado Museum, the Reina Sofia Museum and the Thyssen Bornemisza Museum and 800 metres from the Almudena Cathedral, the Royal Palace and the Plaza de Oriente.
We have the ideal location to be the centre of your Madrid adventure, as we have said, we provide the room… you provide the rest.
