Rooms designed by Kikekeller’s studio, an art gallery with itinerant exhibitions, and signature gastronomy and cocktails.
An oasis between Madrid’s Gran Via and the vibrant neighborhood of Malasaña.
The art exhibition On empty sepulchres is a great metaphor by the artist Almudena Tapia about that painful and forgotten part of the silence imposed by the Spanish civil war to, through the creative process, give birth to a new way of relating to each other. The memory of a nation, its mistakes and successes, everything that people have experienced, can act as a stimulus for a more hopeful future.
7i Art Gallery is NY and Berlin inspired style art gallery located in the lobby of the hotel so that both hotel guests and locals can visit the exhibitions of national and international artists. Every three months an emerging artist is invited to exhibit his/her work.
The 7 Islas hotel was inaugurated in 2002 by businessman Juan Rosa, originally from Lanzarote, with the aim of becoming a home away from home for all those Canary Islanders visiting Madrid. In 2012 the granddaughters of Juan Rosa, Mónica, Kira and Luz took over the direction of the hotel and converted it, without losing its essence, into the current 7 Islas Hotel. Hand in hand with Kikekeller’s interior design studio, they redesigned the hotel to adapt it to the dynamic and artistic neighborhood of Malasaña and turn it into a unique space which combines art, design and gastronomy to perfection.
Currently, the 7 Islas is one of the few hotels in Madrid that is still run by the same family that built it and the three sisters are the ones in charge of managing the day to day of one of the most artistic and vibrant hotels in the center of Madrid.
They have devoted their life to that little craze of creating unique pieces of furniture that last over 1,000 years; and being the 7 Islas hotel packed with them.
