What is a great historic luxury hotel in Madrid?

Madrid Historic Hotel

The Hotel Ritz in Madrid shares with the Ritz hotels in Paris and London a reputation as one of the original grand luxury hotels in Europe. It was inspired by King Alfonso XIII's desire to build a luxury hotel to rival the Ritz in Paris. It opened its doors in 1910 in the presence of King Alfonso XIII. The facade has been designated a historic monument.

It is situated between the Retiro Park, the Teatro de la Zarzuela and Madrid's most important museums: the Prado, the Thyssen Bornemisza and the Centro de Arte Moderno Reina Sofia. The hotel made the Condé Nast Gold List 2007. Rooms have Real Fábrica de Tapices carpets in gold, mauve, or cream and 19th century clocks.

Dining
The Goya Restaurant is highly esteemed for its Sunday Brunch, with a special buffet just for kids. The dinner menu offers a wide selection of Mediterranean and Spanish cuisine.

Spa
No exclusive spa here, but there is a Wellness Center equipped with treadmills, step machines, rowing machines, static bicycles, free weights, weight training equipment, satellite television, radio and daily newspapers, plus a sauna. Massages, sunbed and facials can also be booked.

Deluxe Touch
Just walking in the door is transporting. The gorgeous Belle Époque style throughout, with antiques everywhere and soaring ceilings, exudes luxury.
