Wake up in our Gold Suite, get ready to a curated playlist, and walk to the Golden Triangle of Art, one of Spain’s most visited and venerated cultural sites. It’s easy to get lost in this Bermuda Triangle of museums with pieces by Picasso, Dalí, and van Gogh. When you return, Hard Rock Hotel Madrid keeps the creative juices flowing with crafty cocktails at Roxy Lounge, inspiring rooftop views at RT60, and impromptu Fender® sessions with The Sound of Your Stay®.
The crown jewel of the Golden Triangle, Museo Nacional del Prado boasts one of the world’s largest collections of Spanish paintings. Pose for photos with the iconic Velazquez statue before you walk through the pillared entrance and into exhibits with Italian, French, and Flemish masterpieces.Image by Emilio J.

We know a thing or two about 20th-century music, but Reina Sofía knows all about 20th-century art. Find this museum on the southern end of the Golden Triangle near the Atocha train and metro stations. Be sure to catch Picasso’s Guernica, one of his most celebrated pieces, and paintings by Dalí, Miró, and Gris.Image by Museoreinasofia - Own work, CC BY-SA 3.0
Where the Prado covers Spanish classics and Reina Sofía covers the 20th century, Thyssen-Bornemisza covers the rest. Browse through more than 1,600 paintings by Monet, van Gogh, Degas, Gauguin, and Singer Sargent.
