1. The Ritz Madrid
The Ritz Madrid is a Belle Epoque style hotel from 1910 that combines classic luxury with exceptional service. Imagine handmade carpets, period furniture, marble bathrooms and embroidered linens.
There are two restaurants, offering everything from simple tapas to avant-garde, internationally inspired fine dining, and a cocktail bar where you will find the Ritz’s finest guests winding down with a glass of Krug champagne and caviar.
If this isn’t enough for you, the hotel is perfectly located within walking distance from Madrid’s famed museums, the Prado, Thyssen-Bornemisza and Reina Sofia.
2. The Westin Palace
The Palace Hotel is another great choice for those looking to be located near all the major museums and the Retiro Park. Aside from a stellar location, the hotel features six floors of beautiful classically styled rooms, and four fabulous restaurants serving everything from sushi to Sunday brunch.
This hotel has been hosting Spanish dignitaries, international celebrities and everyone in between for over 100 years, so you never know who you may rub shoulders with during your stay here!The Westin Palace Hotel with the Neptuno fountain.Photo Credit: Tomás Fano
3. Hotel Villa Magna
With an extensive modern art collection, exquisite restaurants and a full-service wellness center, the Villa Magna is one of Madrid’s most luxurious hotels. The hotel is located in the center of the financial and shopping districts, only a short distance from all the most important sights. Fully renovated in 2007, the hotel is a tranquil oasis in the bustling city.
4. ME Madrid Reina Victoria
This fun, modern and centrally located hotel is a great starting point for enjoying the city. ME Madrid Reina Victoria is situated in Plaza Santa Ana, a lovely square lined with cafés and restaurants, but perhaps the best spot to enjoy a drink is the hotel’s own rooftop terrace, where you can enjoy fantastic panoramic views of Madrid as you wind down with a glass of vino after a long day’s sightseeing.The beautiful Hotel ME
5. Hospes Madrid
Hospes Madrid is set in a beautifully restored, 19th-century red brick building right in the center of the city, adjacent to the Retiro Park and close to the Prado and Reina Sofia Museums. The rooms and suites make you want to relax in them, with their plush bedding and well thought out modern design, but when you are ready to experience Madrid some more, you can do so from this very hotel.
Pamper yourself in the spa (or work up some energy in the fitness room, if that’s what you fancy!) then dine at the on-site Independencia Restaurant which features modern Spanish cuisine.
