The most exclusive terrace in Madrid

Hotel Emperador

The sky is in fashion

Would you like to go to the trendiest spot in the whole Spanish capital? Would you like to see the city of Madrid from a privileged location? If so, you are in the right place. The terrace of Hotel Emperador offers all of this and much more. Come and touch the sky and enjoy a unique experience.

Hotel Emperador

An experience up in the clouds

The terrace of the hotel is one of our main symbols. It is located on the tenth floor and from here you will have a view of Gran Vía from a unique perspective. Recently renovated by the architect Nacho García de Vinuesa, the terrace is open all year long and weather is never a problem, since we have heated areas suitable for cold and rainy days.

In spring and summer, it becomes an elegant seasonal beach club during the day, with the added bonus of having the largest rooftop swimming pool in the city which is also the most historical one, since it dates back to 1948. In the evenings, open all year long, an elegant cocktail bar welcomes our guests and invites them to enjoy one of the best sunset views in the whole city, thus becoming a meeting point of reference in the Spanish capital.

Madrid has no beach… Are you sure?

The swimming pool on the terrace is large, offers fantastic views and is ideal for relaxing. From May to September, you can enjoy it with friends, your partner or work colleagues in an atmosphere reminiscent of summers in Ibiza which will transport you to a place that will make you forget you are in the centre of Madrid. Madrid does not have a beach, but you will not miss it, we can guarantee you that.

You can enjoy an oasis of peace in the middle of the hustle and bustle of Gran Vía. We have over 120 loungers, a snack bar-restaurant where you can recharge your batteries with fresh and tasty dishes which are ideal for hot summer days in the city and a cocktail bar with impressive signature preparations.

Facilities open every day from 10.00 a.m. to 9.00 p.m.*
