Extraordinary hotel perfectly located in Madrid. I was able to arrive in Madrid and check in early... a shower, a walk in the park across the street, and a quick nap and I was ready for exploring. Hotel is very well located. Rooms are beautiful. Staff amazing. American style breakfast available if that is your preference. A great base camp...

My friends and I stayed to nights on the tail end of a 10 dat trip to Morocco. We arrived at night so we enjoyed room service, mini bar and the fancy Godiva chocolate left every day. This hotel was so beautiful and a total oasis. Very well located to Retiro park, the metro, Salamanca neighborhood and some great attractions...

Perfect hotel for our Madrid visit. The hotel staff was awesome. I found out last minute that Real Madrid was playing that night. With only three hours to find a ticket, I asked Sergio at the front desk for help. He came through with flying colors. I had a great ticket for a great price to see my first Real...

My wife and I stayed here for 5 nights on our honeymoon in the Fall of 2016. The location was perfect for us, adjacent to El Retiro and a short stroll to Madrid's major art museums. The staff was friendly and always helpful, they made us feel at home for our stay. Highly recommended.

AC Palacio Retiro is a boutique-style hotel in Madrid. While not a completely central location, we found it easy to reach places on our to do list, and absolutely loved the calm and elegant atmosphere it evoked. We spent four days there - the room was in contrast to the old world feel of the place - very spacious and...

a simple building with shiny cristal that is empty without any curtains seems like a naked body. But there is a beautiful pool with good view opposite of this palace that excited us for being there and enjoy the environment.

I have stayed twice at this gem of a hotel, and I have loved each stay. It is located right in front of Parque del Retiro, two blocks away from Puerta de Alcala and the Cibeles, very near Museo del Prado, and a quick stroll away from the Puerta del Sol, Plaza Mayor, and many excellent hotels and shopping avenues....

Staying in Paseo del Prado

Neighbourhood Profile
Paseo del Prado
The area around the elegant Paseo del Prado boulevard is much-visited by both locals and tourists. The world-famous Prado, the Reina Sofia, and the Thyssen-Bornemisza museums form a triangle of art and culture that spans this grand and beautiful avenue. On weekdays, the Prado Museum opens its doors for free after-work hours, drawing a diverse and excited queue of art lovers that wraps around the block. Palacio de Cibeles and Círculo de Bellas Artes cultural centers are other artsy hangouts to check out, with rooftop bars that provide impressive views of the city. While the Paseo del Prado and its roundabouts form a busy throughway in Madrid, a broad green pedestrian park in the middle is a calm and gorgeous place for a relaxing stroll. Just east of the museums, the Retiro Park is always a confluence of activity as families and friends of all ages take to the pretty paths and lawns to stretch their legs or to have a picnic.
