Hotel Palacio Del Retiro
A 19th-century palatial mansion with modern finishes
What it is
Comparable to the Ritz without as much of the formality.
What it isn't
A sceney hotel with a hot bar or restaurant.
What we think
Though housed in a restored 20th-century palatial building, the interiors are mainly contemporary with a few nods to the building’s historic past. Stained glass windows, a winding marble staircase and delicately carved wooden walls are the primary culprits of this. For the most part, the 50 guest rooms have a modern look, which is somewhat of a rarity in Madrid, with great views of the nearby Retiro Park. One of the best aspects of the hotel is its staff-to-guest ratio, which is unusually high for a boutique hotel. You can expect a warm and attentive member of the staff waiting around every corner to ensure a comfortable stay. One thing the hotel does lack is a full-service restaurant, but the 24-hour room service and the hotel’s close proximity to a number of popular Madrid eateries make this a non-issue.
You're here because
You appreciate an art-centric location and want the aristocratic style of the Ritz without the formal service.
