Best for: design lovers
Urban and urbane, Tótem is the new kid on the swanky block in Madrid. Set in the Salamanca district, it offers a 21st-century kind of calm: all muted greys and blues. But the standout here is its drinking and dining space, themed on F Scott Fitzgerald’s
The Beautiful and the Damned. Says it all, really.
