Ritz Ritz always:-))) Not bad way to make repairs in 2-3 years will start to disappear clients:-))Genuine Expedia guest review
"Fabulous location in a beautiful neighborhood"
EXCELLENT except dinner at the restaurant. TOALLY ignored. Hated Americans. TOTALLY OBVIOUS ! Horrible and horrendous service. The general manager did refund my money for the meal and sent champagne which was nice but would have rather had a wonderful dining experience.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"perfect location and helpful staff"
This is my fifth trip to Madrid and I love this location, the Ritz lives up to it's name, the concierge are especially helpful and steered us to the greatest shopping and dining experiences yet! Every amenity were five star with the exception of the mattress! Beautiful high quality linens, but the bed itself was hard and far from luxurious.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
We had an excellent experience. Great staff that are attentive and helpful. Very comfortable bed with selection of pillow types. Excellent garden and restaurantGenuine Hotels.com guest review
We had a wonderful stay. Bathrooms were a little tight.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Very good but not perfect"
I am writing this review based on the fact that this is a 5 star hotel with 5 star prices. So stating that one expects things to be perfect or close to it. Most things are do not get me wrong, the staff is lovely, the location can not be better, over all the public areas are very nice. The classic rooms which is what we had are ok, nice but I had expected […] maybe a little more. No real wow factor, also on their web site it states that you are greeted with fresh flowers in the room, neither room had the advertised roses or orchid, only a small $3 potted plant. Here is where we had the real issue. We had 2 rooms for 2 nights. Room 524 and 525. The hotel was fully booked and we wanted 2 rooms next to each other so that is the only reason I did not complain to the hotel about one of the rooms. The carpet in 525 was old and in very bad shape with ugly stains, I was not comfortable walking with out shoes that is how bad it was, not what you would expect in this kind of hotel. We had breakfast and were very pleased. We also had dinner one night in the Goya, the food is good but again nothing really special and at 40 euros a plate I guess I was expecting something a little more and my son had a small Fanta with his meal which was 9 euros, (really) we had dinner elsewhere for half that the next night and the food was better, but I guess you pay for the fact that you have dinner at the ritz., would I stay here again, I'm nut sure Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Luxury of another era. A step back in time."
Lovely room with antique furnishings. You will definitely feel like a prince in this hotel.or a movie star. I did not have any meals here because the prices were on the high side. The outdoor garden court looked nice for meals. I actually had breakfast at a nearby Starbuck's where you could sit outside. For just a few euros.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Old-Fashioned in the Best Sense"
This hotel suits individuals who seek to live in a world detached from the loud and vulgar aspects of contemporary culture. It suits those of traditional and conservative tastes who enjoy deft and attentive service from polite and respectful staff. It approaches perfection for such people. By contrast, it has little or nothing to offer those seeking […] a zen-like minimalism, an uber-cool detachment, Danish Modern furniture, or an assortment of abstract expressionist hangings on glass walls. In short, the Ritz is a true joy for those seeking traditional luxury, comfort, and attention to detail. Travelers disinclined to favor such things should take a pass, and leave it to those who understand and appreciate this special hotel for the rare treasure it is.

"Even A Grande Dame needs a little TLC"
The staff here is absolutely amazing BUT it feels a little like Miss Havisham's house. The Decor and comfort needs an upgrade to the 21 st century . It is very expensive and if it were for the amazing service it would get 7 stars! BUT.... The environment is not as elegant as it is dated and a bit sad. I expect that they have plans to bring this hotel […] back to glamour soon Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Classy Hotel in great location!!!"
The Hotel Ritz Madrid was a wonderful hotel. The service was great also. There was a large beautiful room perfect for cocktails or afternoon tea.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Fantastic place beautiful older hotel with over all super service. Front desk was a slow process, only two girls on. Great concierge services with wonderful recommendations for restaurants and shows. Rooms are a little aged feeling but all the extras are there. Turn down service, good internet ,room service and a big bathtub! Drawbacks would be very […] expensive food and drinks but I feel like the setting was worth it! Very safe and comfortable feeling! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Beautiful hotel next to the Prado and Retiro Park. Friendly and helpful staff.Genuine Expedia guest review
"The best of Madrid."
We stayed at the Hotel Ritz for the final two nights of our honeymoon in Spain. The staff were wonderful, the room spacious and comfortable and the hotel polished and elegant. I always felt a bit under-dressed surrounded by the mirrors, marble and gold, but never felt anything but welcome during our stay. We took advantage of the hotels location, arriving […] via high speed rail and a short cab ride, and visiting the Prado early to avoid the lines. I would highly recommend the Hotel Ritz to any of my friends and family. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Elegant and Great Service"
Elegant, staff give a great service (something not usual in Spain), and in the mid point of everything.Genuine Expedia guest review
Great hotel. We stayed 2 nights in June and had a wonderful stay. When you step into the Ritz its like stepping into a bygone era. This hotel oozes with class. The staff are great and very helpful. There is a concierge - his name is Borja go see him. He is probably the world's best concierge. I am not kidding, he's that good and speaks perfect English […] and a ton of other languages. This hotel is in a great location next to the Prado and make sure to go to the big park that is 5 minutes away - it's huge and safe and beatiful and tons to see there. These are the 2 downsides of this wonderful hotel. The room is really old looking. There is nothing at all modern about this place. The other downside are the prices of the salon (I guess its the equivalent of the hotel bar). Cokes are 12 euros and glasses of wine are 15-25 euros. My wife and I had a couple of night caps two nights and our bill was like 115 euros. ouch. Other than that, this place is magnificent. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Waste of money"
Definitely the worst Ritz I ever stayed at. Lobby is good, but rooms are long overdue renovation, stinking old carpets, etcGenuine Expedia guest review
This hotel is in a class by itself for service and careful, discreet care for its guests. We stayed for four nights and were cared for like visiting royalty. The concierge service is especially noteworthy. The Ritz will always be our home in Madrid.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"The Usual Ritz"
This is a Ritz that has very small rooms and very traditional. Feels almost outdated. We had to ask the reception to change our room as the room they gave us was from the 1950's. The service is spot on and the food is very, very overpriced. We ordered pasta for our daughter in the room and it was 30 Euros. Probably the first and last stay for us at […] this particular Ritz.

"Eh. Not of the usual Ritz quality."
It looked old, the service was slow, and the room was super small. The Christmas decorations helped some, but I was highly disappointed overall for a Ritz and expected much more. We also stayed at a Westin across the street and it was much newer and had better service.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Feel like a king"
Loved this hotel. Excellent location. The staff could not have been any better.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Disappointing for a Ritz"
The bed was so uncomfortable. They spay the hotel and halls with powder smelling fragrance that made myself and husband very stuffy. NOT what I would have expected being a Ritz Hotel. The staff was very slow in the bar and dining areas.Genuine Expedia guest review

"Rooms need serious renovation inner views horrible"
Excelent staff, but the rooms are in very bad shape, looks like the one I stayed in has not been renovated since the 80s. The inner courtyard to which my room had view is just horrible, a few plants on a inner rooftop wich looks just horrible. Price/quality: I would not recomend it, I stayed at the Palace hotel a week before and it was much much better […] and its just across the street. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"If you love antique feel"
We stayed 5 days at the hotel, love the location, secluded yet central. We got a room overlooking Museum Prado, Goya statue and the church which was great. The concierge got us skip line tickets..really awesome. The size of the room is decent for Europe with the tall window. The downside was the room temperature; we got there close to Spring which was […] nice temperature in the morning and night but during the day was really hot. The hotel rep said they do not turn on the air conditioning till Spring; quite unexpected to hear. They brought us a fan instead. The bed sheet are not soft, neither the tissue and toilet paper. The whole room and entire floor smell old like a museum. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Awesome Ritz experience"
Hotel 100 years old but looks sumptious with all the old world charm together with modern facilities, the staff were totally attentive & helpful, treating you like a VIP throughout our stay. Nothing was too much trouble and the stay could not have been more enjoyableGenuine Expedia guest review
"Superb hotel near the Prado and Thyssen"
This is a superb city centre hotel with excellent staff who could not do more if they tried. From the welcome to the marvellous concierge who will arrange anything including getting one on an aircraft when the French Air Traffic controllers are on strike which caused chaos throughout Spain. The terrace is an ideal place to relax and have lunch, tea […] or dinner. Food is excellent and the wine is very reasonably priced for a 5 Star city hotel in a capital. Whilst not the cheapest hotel it is well worth the extra. I have travelled extensively and cannot recommend this hotel more highly. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"great hotel, town center, near the museums"
We had fantastic service from the moment we checked in late evening. All of the help from front desk,to concierge, to housekeeping just couldn't have been more helpful or attentive. Also, for a grand hotel, they go out of their way to make you feel comfortable and well cared for. The breakfast was excellent even though we didn't stay for it every day. […] The outside terrace garden was a lovely setting for lunch. The concierge desk arranged an outside Madrid tour for us that my husband had been hoping to do wt an excellent company,good guide and comfortable bus. We would definitely return.

"Old world Charm"
The Ritz Madrid is a grand old lady. Staying there whilst visiting Spain with its rich history is entirely appropriate. All our needs were catered for by courteous and knowledgeable staff. Not speaking Spanish was no problem. The dining experience is first class.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Impeccable service. Very clean though old. Right next to Prado museum (I thought was the best museum in Madrid) Quiet location and rooms have a double door so quiet . Beds very comfy. Sent complimentary Cava to room when husband let slip was my birthday. Fresh flowers and bed linen dailyGenuine Hotels.com guest review
