The construction of the building that houses the Hotel Sardinero Madrid dates back to the expansion plan for the old town of Madrid that began at the end of the 19th century. The Plaza de Alonso Martínez where it is located became an axis that gave way to wide boulevards after the collapse of the city walls.
The building was designed in 1914 by the famous architect Ignacio de Aldama Elorz for Juan Bautista Topete and his works lasted until 1916. The building, with a marked neoclassical style, is a symbol of the Madrid bourgeoisie at the beginning of the 20th century, which he commissioned architects to build residential buildings with attics occupied by pinnacles to signify their elevation, either for aesthetics or to express their ascending drive towards power.
Throughout the 20th century, the elegant apartments gave way to a space occupied mostly by offices. In 1964 the building increased one floor over the last existing one, in a completely different architectural language from the one used in the rest of the building. After its last major renovation approved in 2006, the building, which enjoys maximum urban protection, stands on a plot of just over 560 square meters. It consists of seven floors above ground and a semi-basement in which the new rooms and the different hotel services are distributed. The corner tower that rises in front of the Hotel Sardinero Madrid is what gives special beauty to the chamfer of this unique work and the one that marks its size the perimeter of the closest border of Madrid with the sky.
