The Michelin Guide, known – and sometimes feared – worldwide for its restaurant ratings, has now also published a ranking for hotels. Five Spanish hotels have received three Michelin ‘keys’ for their exceptional quality, service and offering an unforgettable experience.

The keys recognise the very best hotels and help guests choose a hotel. Michelin itself says: “In response to the hyper-standardisation of contemporary accommodation (in terms of design, furnishings, in-room amenities, etc.), we want to arouse the emotions of guests by directing them to special companies that excel in all areas: architecture , professional know-how and the confirmation of a unique personality.”


Michelin Guide inspectors assessed more than 5,000 exceptional hotels in 120 countries based on five crucial criteria during anonymous visits. These criteria are: the extent to which the hotel is a destination in itself and contributes to the local experience, the excellence in architecture and interior design, the quality and consistency of service, comfort and maintenance, the individuality that emphasises the unique character of the establishment, and the price-quality ratio. This comprehensive assessment ensures that each selected hotel offers an exceptional standard of hospitality and service.

Hotels that have been awarded three Michelin keys are among the absolute top in every respect. Subsequently, the award of two Michelin keys indicates an equally extraordinary experience that is worth a detour. These hotels have a unique character, personality and charm, and are managed with pride and care. Striking design and architecture enhance the sense of place, contributing to a very special stay. Hotels with three Michelin keys offer the ultimate experience in comfort and service, with unparalleled style and elegance. These top accommodations are true destinations in themselves and know how to create lifelong memories by seamlessly combining all facets of hospitality.

Exceptional stays in Spain

In Spain, the excellent service and quality of five hotels were rewarded with three keys. The highest possible distinction went to:

  • Torre del Marqués Hotel Spa & Winery in Teruel, located in the Matarraña region. This hotel is housed in a beautifully restored 18th-century tower. The complex is surrounded by olive trees and vineyards and the hotel attaches great importance to sustainability and local gastronomy in all services.
  • Abadía Retuerta LeDomaine in Valladolid, set in a carefully preserved 12th-century monastery. This luxurious boutique hotel is known for its excellent wines and Michelin-starred gastronomy.
  • Terra Dominicata – Hotel & Winery in Tarragona, an elegant hotel that was part of an ancient monastery complex and perfectly integrated into the natural and historic landscape of the Montsant Natural Park.
  • Atrio Restaurante Hotel in Caceres. This culinary haven is led by chef Toño Pérez. The hotel combines phenomenal hospitality with a gastronomic experience awarded with three Michelin stars.
  • Mandarin Oriental Ritz in Madrid is an iconic Belle Époque palace that is central to Madrid’s hospitality sector. This hotel combines classical grandeur with modern luxury and houses the Michelin-awarded Deessa restaurant.
