The hotel's location alone constitutes a luxury, situated at the very center of Madrid. Hotel Ritz by Belmond is located between the beautiful Retiro Park, the elegant Teatro de la Zarzuela, and Madrid's most important museums - the Prado, the Thyssen Bornemisza and the Centro de Arte Moderno Reina Sofia. The hotel is within walking distance from the financi...

Staff was delightfully enthusiastic. Setting was beautiful!
The beds were amazingly comfortable, the housekeepers were not only very amusing but extraordinarily nice. The hotel was insanely clean and had a very comfortable feel to it, as if a lot of fancy people had been through it over the years. The location is good, but not great, for accessing most of the touristy stuff in Madrid. But I found the Prado (directly beside the Ritz) to be horrifically overcrowded compared to some of the other museums like Sofia Reina just down the street. Note: Not really easy to access via metro, I'd recommend taking a taxi to/from.
Take the following review with a grain of salt. I am a young person who grew up poor and wanted, for once, the "Ritz" experience: While I am a big fan of trying new things, I have to say that the Ritz experience just wasn't for me. I don't mean to be crass, but if I had a fistful of fives - I can think of a few places I'd rather spend it than tipping the endless stream of people trying to help me with things. Additionally, there is a little doll that you place on your door if you do not wish to be disturbed. Note: Don't leave the doll up for very long, because if you do, they will call your room until you answer so that they can ask when the next time they can come in your room is. I nap maybe... 2-3 times per year at most, and I am severely irritated that they felt the need to call during my biannual nap to ask me when they can come in my room. Instead of changing my sheets 3X per day, how about leaving me the hell alone when I have my DO NOT DISTURB DOLL up? Perhaps I am not cut out for the lifestyle, but I don't want/need people treating me like a helpless child, yet simultaneously making me feel "lower" than they are. Every time I offered a "no thanks, I don't need a taxi, I'm walking" or walked into the hotel from the street, I received these weird looks of incredulity/disdain that I didn't particularly care for. When I brought my own luggage downstairs on checkout I absolutely horrified the front desk attendant. Why the need to treat people like this? I have no idea. My recommendation? Take the $500 per night you'd spend here for the standard room and split it in half. Take $250 / night to spend on some other hotel's suite. Take the other $250 and stick it back in your pocket.

I was supposed to have a room for two adults and two childrenn under the age of 7. I only got a room for two and I had (was made) to have an extra room for a different price. We had to be in two different rooms. The location is far from the center.The staff would not let us share our room with two little kids. Each adult had to occupy a room with a child (their regulations I guess). They were very unfriendly.

It is close to major attractions. Clean, quiet and the attendants are very friendly. The breakfast is good.
There are some steps to the lift.I recommend for those who want comfort and convenience.
Yes- the weird and unsafe connected buildings; the fact that hosuekeeping never replenished anything; the intermittent wifi; the shabby towels and linens.I already wrote to Priceline about how deeply misleading calling this a 4 star hotel is.

Easy walk to Atocha and to EMT airport shuttle for only 5 euro. But also quiet and just off the touristy area, so has a bit more of a local feel. Always English speaking staff member at desk. Stayed as single in small but suitable single room, and also stayed several days with family in very large "family sized" room. Suited wife, me, and two teenage boys just fine. Two large rooms and two individual mattresses fold out from sleeper sofa in second room.
Everything in good repair, but decor a bit dated.

Flamenco, gastronomic and cultural delights in Madrid
Located on the Manzanares River, in the centre of the Castillian Plain, Madrid is the capital and largest city of Spain. It is also its political, economic and cultural centre and is considered one of the world’s major global cities. Despite its modern infrastructure, Madrid maintains a historic look and feel in many of its neighbourhoods and streets. With warm dry summers and cool winters, Madrid is a popular tourist destination and a hive of cultural and artistic activity with a very vibrant nightlife.
Bullfights, churros and a touch of history
Begin your sightseeing tour with a ride on the Teleférico cable car and get a bird’s eye view of significant city attractions while listening to the helpful, pre recorded guide. Along the way, catch a glimpse of the Royal Palace, the Royal Theatre and Opera House and the National Library. Madrid contains a large number of National Museums including those in the Golden Triangle of Art: Prado Museum, the Reina Sofia Museum, a museum of modern art and Thyssen-Bornemisza Museum. Located along Paseo del Prado, the triangle provides a comprehensive view into the past. No visit to Madrid is complete without a stroll along the Gran Via and Paseo de la Castellano, Madrid’s most famous streets. Gran Via begins at the popular Plaza Alcalá and passes hundreds of stores, hotels, restaurants, bars and other businesses before ending at the expansive Plaza de España. On your travels, be sure to take in Cibeles Palace and Fountain, the monument symbols of the city.
A delicious start to the day’s itinerary is Madrid’s renowned breakfast of chocolate and churros at the 24 hour San Ginés, founded in 1894. Walk off breakfast with a wander through El Retiro, a green escape within the city and the grounds of the Crystal Palace. Stick with the outdoor theme and find a bargain at the Rastro, Madrid’s weekly open air flea market, held in the historic centre. Afterwards, sample some local food at Mercado de San Miguel, once a traditional market and now a modern gastronomic adventure.
As the sun lowers, see the glorious skies reflected in the pools surrounding Templo de Debod, the the 2200-year-old Egyptian temple gifted to Spain in 1968. Continue the evening with a quintessential experience of flamenco dancing and tapas, or take in a traditional bullfight in Madrid’s main bullring, Las Ventas. The streets of the Malasaña neighbourhood are alive with nightlife. Bars, heaving parties, house and dance music and indie venues are all commonplace. The Chueca area is home to Madrid’s thriving gay scene and is a must see for the annual mid-year Gay Pride celebration.
Find your way to and around Madrid
Due to its central location, Madrid benefits from convenient infrastructure both getting there and in the way of public transport within the city. Many travellers choose to arrive at Barajas Airport and transfer to the city centre by Aerocity Airport Shuttle, car rental, taxi, 24 hour airport express bus or the metro, which runs every five minutes and takes just twelve minutes to reach the city. As far as land travel goes, it’s relatively easy to reach Madrid by road or rail, or you may wish to take the high-speed AVE train direct from Barcelona. Once in the city the modern metro and bus networks provide an exceptional service. Bicycling in Madrid is not encouraged as the both the infrastructure and the motorists are poorly prepared for cyclists.
