My husband booked this as surprise for my 50th birthday and what a wonderful surprise it was! The hotel is stunning and the service way beyond anything I have experienced before. This truly is 5 star in every sense of the rating. I was presented with truly scrumptious cake for my birthday not once but twice! The staff were friendly and so helpful especially in La Goya. Rooms are great size big wardrobes, great shower and gold fittings in bathroom, nightly turn down service such a treat. We had lovely view of Prado museum. Thank you to everyone at hotel Ritz for making this such a special occasion and memorable trip.

We stayed at the Hotel Ritz in Madrid for four days and nights. The hotel maintains its historic charm. Sitting for drinks in the lobby is like an adventure back to the 1920s oand 30s. Filled with handsome well dressed sophisticated travelers, lovers and business tycoons. The dinning room was elegant. Breakfast a peaceful start of the day. Our room overlooking the garden was spectacular with a wardrobe that could have accommodated a stay of a month and ones steamer trunk. The staff is very personable while professional. The doorman and baggage men who greeted us as if we were just returning home. The location could not be better. The Prado is just a block away. The Thyssen is across the square. Restaurants abound. The only regret is that we were not able to stay longer.

Room Tip: Our room overlooking the garden permitted us to look out over the garden and across to the square.

I would add just a few things to what's already been mentioned.

Pro: Perfect location, elegant without being pretentious somehow, fine services, very friendly.

Con: Impossible to figure out the light switches! You have to get out of bed, walk to the front door to turn on the bathroom lights.

And the elegant restaurant lives up to its reputation with finest possible service, but the prices are exorbitant, and better food is available throughout Madrid.

I'd return for sure, if just to walk across the street to a choice of fine museums.

Dear Mr Glazen,

Thank you very much for your feedback and for sharing your great experience with all trip advisors readers. We sincerely look forward to welcoming you back soon to the legendary Ritz and take good note of the challenges encountered with our room light switches.

We are also very happy that you tried our restaurant Goya and that you enjoyed its food. Our restaurant is considered among the top ten of madrid because of its location, creativity of our chef and great quality of our product. Prices are indeed on the high level but we believe the experience is worth it. Nevertheless we are always opened for feedback and look forward to continue to exceed your expectations on your next visit to Madrid.

Regards,

Christian Tavelli

You want a trip down the memory lane? Want a bite out of the 50's and 60's? A slice of nostalgia? Well...this is the place to be. One can actually spend hours just admiring the paintings, carpets and other artefacts in the hotel. The rooms are big, with huge wardrobes. The bathrooms come with gold plated fittings and fixtures. Everything is grand. Opulent. Breath taking.
Did not have any meal in the hotel, so cannot comment on the same. Would love to stay here again.

Dear Bhawanipathania,

Thank you for your review and for choosing hotel Ritz madrid for your stay in the heart of Spain. I am truly happy that you have enjoyed your stay and loved our facilities. There is a soul at the Ritz that we preserve as a treasure since it´s opening in 1910. If you had the chance to visit Madrid´s Royal Palace, you will find many similarities.

We truly hope to welcome you back and enjoy the amazing food prepared by our renowned chef Jorge Gonzalez at our Goya Restaurant, one of Madrid´s 10 top restaurants.

Regards,

Christian Tavelli

In the heart of Madrid , just across the street from Prado Museum , in a fancy property , you will find yourself at home.
My 8 years old daughter felt like home.
And so I did.
If I return to Madrid , this is the place I want to stay over again!

Not to be confused with the Ritz Carlton "branded" hotels, this Orient Express property is very nice hotel with lots of charm. It is located in a very nice part of Madrid and within walking distance to the "old town". The rooms are large and clean, with comfortable furnishings. I stayed for 2 nights when in Madrid for work and would welcome a chance to return.
