Unparalleled Breakfast Experience

   I usually don’t have time to have a good breakfast. When traveling in Europe, I always look forward to what kind of breakfast the hotel will prepare for us. I don’t know whether it’s affected by COVID-19, or the hotel never provides self-service buffet breakfast. This hotel let guests to order from menu and then bring every dish to individual guest. I had experienced breakfast in eight hotels for this vacation. The breakfast at the San Mauro Hotel should be the most exquisite and delicious, with the most leisurely atmosphere and excellent service. The breakfast comforted me physically and mentally after not going abroad for 3 and a half years due to COVID-19. In particular, I would like to introduce the incomparable breakfast at the Luxury Collection Hotel San Mauro in detail, please click the link below to taste every dish with me.


Dining Experience 

      During my stay, I also had enjoyed lunch and dinner in the hotel. I was in a good mood to dine in such a beautiful space. I also experienced a free drink in the garden in the evening. You are welcome to click the button below to explore the meals and drinks with me.


If You Ask Me Where You Stayed in Madrid?
I Would Say 'Heaven'

      I had stayed in a lot of luxury 5-star hotel over the past three decades. However, Santo Mauro Hotel is not just luxury, but also attentive to the details of hospitality. They place a high priority on the needs of individual guests.  As I had worked for a French based multinational company's branch office in Taiwan, I had learned that the inner communcaiton and team work between the staff of different culture are not easy. When I realized that some of the hotel staff are from different nations, I couldn't help marveling at how the management could make staff from different countries and cultures work so professionally and efficiently.  It is grateful that their professional and hard work made me a heavely stay in Madrid.


The Hotel Staff with Enthusiasm
Made Me Feel Home

   Taiwanese people's enthusiasm for foreigners is very well-known among tourists. I didn't expect Spain to be so similar to Taiwan. Although I stayed in this hotel for only three days, the good memories will always remain in my heart. As a solo traveler, the staff gave me the warmest welcome, the most thoughtful experience, and the most comfortable accommodation.  This hotel made me deeply feel the human touch of the Spanish people, as well as the high-quality professionalism of the employees in the hotel industry. Take this opprotunity, I would like to give special thanks to everyone and sincerely wish them enjoy working and life!

My Heavenly Stay in

Santo Mauro Hotel, Madrid

   It has been more than a decade since my last visit to Madrid.  I hoped to deeply experience the beauty and humanity of this Spanish capital for my second trip in 2023. Since the hotels in different districts of Madrid have their pros and cons, which had made me hesitate for long time. Thus, it took a lot of time to book hotels beforehand. In the end, I stayed in 3 different hotels in Madrid in 6 days. In my personal travel history, the last one 'Santo Mauro Hotel' where I stayed for 3 nights​ is the only hotel made me feel like I was in paradise. It not only gave me a new look at the Spanish hotel industry, but also beat out the Italian hotels and rearranged the ranking of European hotels in my mind.


​I Was Surprised by the Doorman
When I Just Arrived at the Hotel

   Before I arrived at the hotel, I received an online check-in e-mail from the Marriott Hotel Group, which meant that I could check in online. At that time, I thought it was strange why the Marriott Group developed such an impersonal procedure for guests to check in by themselves. I obediently clicked and completed the process about a few minutes before I arrived at the hotel. As a result, the hotel doorman called me Ms. Chou when I just opened the door and got off the taxi. I was very suprised by the doorman, because none of the hotel staff knew my last name in my past travel history, even if I stayed in a 5-star hotel in Vienna for 21 days. Surprisingly, the senior doorman still remembered my surname and called me Ms. Chou when he met me somewhere in the hotel.



     After completing check in at the front desk, a gentleman took me to visit the hotel. The public area of the hotel looked like what I had seen in the official website is as beautiful, luxury and exquisite.



Unique Accommodation Experience
in the Spanish Duke's Exquisite Home

     Hotel Santo Mauro was originally the home of the most influential Duke of Santo Mauro in Madrid society in the 19th century. The hotel consists of three buildings, heavily influenced by French design, set in lush gardens with fountains and terraces shaded by gardens and ancient chestnut trees. Not only the attention to detail of guest room made me immerse in the classical style. The interior design of each public space is unique: the red room embodies pure French classicism, while the oriental art works collected by the Duke during his travels give the lounge a Chinese style. The bar offers a wide range of wines and small dishes, and the Duke's former library is planned as the main restaurant. The thoughtful service made my stay a perfect and unique experience like heaven. To introduce the hotel in detail, I will publish another post in the near future to share the beauty of common area.


​A Hotel Healed My Body,Mind & Soul

     I stayed in the Junior Suite, which is located in the most historic building of the hotel, where is also the Duke's first home.



   The suite had comprehensively improved my accommodation experience, from just sleeping and bathing to deeply experiencing the living taste and lifestyle of Madrid. For the detailed introduction of this suite, I will specially share it in another post, please click the link below to read the full text.
