This beautifully appointed, perfectly located hotel in the heart of Madrid's leafiest, prettiest area goes to the top of the list of the best hotels we've experienced. Right across from the Prado, a block from Retiro Park--it is itself a kind of museum and park, with classic appointments and a garden restaurant featuring music and yummy tapas. We were in heaven! And the sheets: What are they? Some linen or silk that invites luxuriating and slumber. The closets are large and easy to use, minimizing travel rummages and searches.
The service, too, deserves superlatives. My husband became quite ill for a day or two, and the prompt, attentive staff seemed to be right outside our door, ready to bring invalid messes or to make up the room. Waiters, maids, the concierge-all were helpful and genuinely friendly.
Along with the Mandarin Oriental in Paris and the Oberoi Grand in Kolkata, the Ritz Madrid is superb. We were lucky to be there--and hope some day to return!
