Spent five nights here in a room overlooking the Prado. Because you can enter the Prado for free every evening from 6-8, staying here was like having the Prado in your backyard with free acess. There are no international 5 star chains and the Ritz while needing some updating , especially the carpets, gave impeccable service. We used a five night special and they treated us extremely well. They provided complimentary champagne, substituted beautiful cookies for fruit at our request, and generally were very accomodating .The carpets were dated in my room from 1986, woven into a corner. They appear to be a similar pattern to the ones in the Palace. The room itself was very attractive and the bathroom large and convenient. Be aware , the internet is not free and expensive...I am told they are refurbishing for their 100th anniversay in 2011, but as yet only three rooms are done. I think if you call ahead and say you are concerned about the conditions they will do their best to find you a beautiful room. They did for us.
