A very beautiful hotel, very classic. Rooms are big and spacious but some things need a renovation. Specially the bed. Also all the extra things are really expensive. I order coffee to my room and even though it came in a very elegant presentation, it was really expensive. I don't know if it is worth the price.

This is not a new or modern hotel. Stayed in a delux suite that was very clean, ridiculously spacious, well lit and dripped elegance of a time recently passed. Bathrooms were well updated and very functional. Staff was excellent, prompt and seemed to appear when needed and then vanish. The location for me was outstanding and easy cab rides to various parts of the city.

" The best luxury I ever experienced" Our recent stay at the legendary Ritz exceeded our expectations. The hotel is the most beautiful I ever visited. The beauty of the public spaces tops even Hotel de Paris in Monaco which is one of my favorites. The opulence and belle epoque style takes your breath away as soon as you enter the lobby. I could have sat for hours in the main hall to observe the beautiful details everywhere. Our suite 501 was fine for 4 nights stay but personally I like a bit bi... Read more

Ideal location and elegant rooms. Great gym and running with the Ritz program is a plus. However, the trainer exhibited some favouritism. Not sure whether it was because the other client was Spanish or male; but he received a personal training session and I was ignored. The concierges were friendly. The food and cava sangrias were tasty but service at the lounge was slow and service at the outdoor bar was rude.

The Ritz is an excellent place to stay in Madrid. It is a historic hotel just across the street from the Prado. It is very convenient for visiting not only the Prado, but also the other major art museums in Madrid. It is also convenient to the train station. The service was outstanding, and our deluxe room was really a suite. It was very quiet for sleeping. The breakfast was good, and the garden tapas restaurant was a very nice choice for an early dinner. I highly recommend this hotel. W... Read more

Airport pick up. First, I could not find my confirmed transfer at the airport. I had to exchange money and hail a taxi instead.

This hotel carries certainly the royal touch, absolutely splendid in every corner. The hotel rooms are quite big, the closet for storing luggages and clothes is big enough for putting quite some people in. The bed is extremely comfortable. The toilet covered with marble is beautifully decorated The only complaint that I have is that the shower head is only from the top and you may easily get a non-voluntary hair wash!

This is not only the best hotel in Madrid, but one of the best in the world.

Went for a four day weekend break. Can't fault absolutely anything at this hotel. The service is amazing. They can't do enough to help you and make your stay comfortable. At every point there is service with a smile. Only negative is there is very little vegetarian choices in breakfast and at the Resturant. We requested for veg food ( ie.

This is the oldest 5 star hotel in Madrid and it maintains its old world charm. The moment you arrive you feel taken back in time. The lobby has beautiful chandeliers and couches to relax in.

Staying at the Ritz was as much a thrill for me and my family (wife + 2 young adult daughters) as I imagine it was during its 'heyday' in the early/mid 1900's. The Ritz retains all the historical mystique and flourishes while presenting its always-in-fashion exemplary service. We never tire of staying in 'living monuments' to the Old Europe and we're not alone in our thinking - as evidenced by the diversity of fellow guests (families, movie starts, politicians, locals, etc.) we observed during...

We recently stayed 8 nights in a 1 bedroom suite. the hotel has worn carpeting but most important the shower was so small, one cannot raise their arms to wash their hair. having stayed at numerous European hotels, this was way smaller than any other encountered. The price we paid for a 1 bed suite was outrageous considering the desperate need of renovations and the shower...which also had black mold in it. Unacceptable for a Mandarin property

It's like entering a world of luxury. Wonderful staff and service, excellent breakfast options. A grand hotel with beautiful furnishings - made us feel like Queens.

This is a great location, not far from the Prada - we could walk to all major sights.

A tired property that should not be on the Amex Fine Hotels program unless, and until, the rooms are renovated.

I would never stay anywhere else. This is the best hotel in Madrid. They need some serious help with the room lights though, because at night you cannot find your way to the bathroom. Nevertheless, it is still the most beautiful hotel to stay in.

I had afternoon tea here with my wife and another couple. It's a beautiful and grandly charming hotel as you would expect. No better place to have tea at 4pm on Saturday afternoon in late September. It is right next to El Prado, possibly the greatest art museum I have ever been in! So you see the art and then drop in here for tea. It gets no more civilised...

It can be a wonderful experience to go old-school to a true luxury hotel from a different era. The Ritz provides that experience. Great location in a wonderful city, but that is a given. Decor maybe a little on the worn side and definitely designed many years ago. But what made it work so well was the attitude of the staff - one of those rare hotels where you are treated well by everyone who just want to make your stay better. We showed up early off the plane, were comped a breakfast and up... Read more

Stayed here for eight nights recently.Truly a hotel from a time gone by.Style,courtesy and elegance,sadly not always complimented by some present day travellers who seem to think they are on a beach in Maui.More's the pity. As others have stated the planned refurbishment will take place next year.Let's hope they concentrate on upgrading the rooms and leave the beautiful lounge as it is.

Loved the room, services and the restaurant Goya and the beautiful outdoor garden Jardin where one could relax for drinks and tapas. The concierge service was exceptional and made arrangements so we could easily get to the restaurants, the Prado and do day trips with a driver to Avila and Segovia with helpful tips to make make our trip extremely pleasant and effortless.

My wife and I had stayed at the Ritz, Madrid about 9 years ago and found it to be a wonderful hotel then so this year we decided to give them another visit. We had another wonderful time here. The reception was great. We arrived early so we had to wait a little while until our room was ready so we sat in the beautiful lounge area and listened to the most wonderful piano player while we had coffee and tea and scrumptious cookies. Our room was wonderful and quite large. We had a lunch in their gar... Read more

We just stayed at the Ritz Madrid for 3 nights in September. It was a good stay, they upgraded us to a nice suite and we frequented the majority of their restaurant choices. It's a lovely and elegant, classic styled hotel. I have read in previous reviews that it needs updating and from what I understand, the Mandarin Oriental plans to do a renovation in 2017. Yes it could use an update, but it was a very nice stay regardless of the fact that the carpets and plumbing systems could use a face-l... Read more

We stayed for 5 nights in this wonderful hotel. We talked about what makes a 5 star hotel, we decided it was many things. It is the concierge team that can make a huge difference. At the Madrid Ritz we thought it had one of the best concierge team we had experienced. There was a problem with our room, it was not the hotel fault, a guest was smoking a cigar next door. The head concierge organised for our luggage to be moved to another room without any fuss and sincere apologies. You can book a... Read more

We stayed at the Ritz Madrid for four nights and it was like heaven. Borja, the Senior Concierge is a dream, absolutely devoted to us!

An old world elegant hotel, yet not stuffy. We arrived in late afternoon and had a deliciously simple snack in the Hall, the lovely reception area for tea near the lobby. Concierge was very helpful in making dinner reservations and was fun to talk to.

This is real five star hotel. The location is excellent for the Prado and Thyssen- Bornemisza museums and the botanical gardens. The style is traditional European grand with marble, gilt and tapestries. Rooms are furnished in the same manner and size is adequate. Bathrooms are comfortable with quality toiletries.

Well when you hear "Ritz" and "hotel" that is a good start. Service exceptional from entering to leaving. Nothing too much trouble. Ask Alvaro to make his special botanical gin y tonics- pure theatre. Note: hotel is "traditional" and certainly not "boutique" ( which I personally prefer). Pros: all of the above, quality of food, central position ( Prado, Thyssen museums, city centre Cons: who is paying! Air con is a bit wonky.

I was travelling to Spain and had stayed in the Ritz Hotel for two nights. We were a bit early when we arrive and the room was not ready, the reception was so nice to offer us a city guide pack and a drink in the lobby lounge so we would decide where to go. Server in the lounge was also very kind to introduce us the history of the hotel and the best place for churros (of course the one served in Ritz was also amazing!). They have a selection of pillows for you to choose which I highly appreciate... Read more

Stayed here for a work function. Staff are friendly and helpful. Hotel is grand in the lobby bar but I found my room to be small with a threadbare carpet in places. It's a fifteen minute walk to plaza mayor up a hill from here but is next to the Prado museum and on the tourist bus route. Ok but for the money I think there are better places to be.

This is a hotel that lives on past faded glories. A re-decoration and update is so badly overdue that the interior has now become historic. The whole hotel also has an aroma of stale cigarettes with machines whirring in the corridors to try and cleanse the air. There was no welcome or help on arrival or departure. The hotel is like staying in your grandparents guest bedroom.

This Ritz was an amazing property. The staff went above and beyond to make sure our stay was awesome. The only complaint we had was we wished the patio was open. There were a few beautiful days on our stay and we wanted to have lunch/drinks on the patio but it was closed. The hotel is right next to the most beautiful park and within walking distance to many cool areas to see.

I stayed here for two nights in April during a business trip to Madrid. Fortunately, I had a little time to take advantage of the great location and went for a quick run in Parque del Retiro. This hotel is definitely an elegant, classic hotel, so if the reader is looking for a more modern feel, he or she should look elsewhere. But please don't take "classic" to mean "dated." The rooms and common spaces are maintained to a high standard, without a doubt. I would definitely stay here again, fo... Read more

The Ritz is around the corner from the Prado museum, across the plaza from the Thyssen-Bornemisza Museum, and a short taxi ride/longish walk from the Reina Sofia modern art museum. The concierge had tickets for the Prado, which saved me and my friend a long wait on line.

Staying at the Hotel Ritz Madrid feels like an embrace. Every need is quickly attended to with care. The Sunday brunch looks like a snapshot of characters from an exotic movie. The food is exquisite. Can a hotel evoke sadness when you depart? The Ritz does!

Great hotel. Nice front desk and concierge. The adjoining rooms we had were comfortable although they were a little crowded with tables and chairs that made it a bit cramped. The common spaces are well cared for, the patio is a great place to relax after a day of sightseeing, and the breakfasts were excellent. This hotel also has a great location. Good fitness center. We would certainly stay here again.

When I was there seven years ago they told me there was going to be a big renovation for the hundredth birthday in 2011. Well it never happened. Now they tell me the hotel has been sold , will be run by the Mandarin and will close for a major renovation which it needs badly in 2018. It will probably happen this time because a new Four Seasons is under construction and the Ritz is not currently up to Mandarin standards The location , a hundred yards from the Prado is still the best.

The hotel has an excellent location on a quiet tree lined street in one of the best parts of the city. The back of the property is directly across the street from the Prado Museum. There was a nice mix of guests including individuals, business people and a few small tour groups. It was not overwhelmed by package tourism. The staff were gracious, professional and very helpful. The room was in a traditional style.. The bathroom was modern and beautifully appointed.

My husband and I have stayed at the Ritz many times, and this time we decided to get a suite. They gave us a great deal, four nights for the price of three and breakfast included. Furthermore, getting a suite entitled us to pick up and drop off at the airport in a beautiful, spacious car. To start with, the concierges at the Ritz are amazing.
