Built in 1910, this belle époque palace established Madrid as one of the truly great European cities. The hotel is centrally located within walking distance of the city’s major cultural, business, shopping and dining venues. A lively gathering place for Spanish high society, its restaurants and bars are a constant buzz of activity.


It is located directly opposite the Museo del Prado and close by other major galleries including the Thyssen-Bornemisza Museum and Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofia. Also nearby are the Buen Retiro Park and Botanical Gardens. The hotel’s façade is a listed national monument and it sits in gardens with a terrace restaurant.


120 rooms and 42 suites arranged over six floors. Each is a perfectly conceived retreat—elegant and stylish with fine furnishings and luxurious fabrics. Many of the rooms overlook the famous Prado Museum or the hotel gardens, others face the dramatic Neptune Fountain or verdant Plaza de la Lealtad. A number of rooms have French balconies from which to enjoy the views.

No two rooms are the same. Each has been individually designed, its colour scheme echoing the subtle hues of the gorgeous carpets—handcrafted by legendary Spanish firm La Real Fábrica de Tapices—that adorn every room. Original wall panelling, precious antiques, delicate brass ornaments, Oriental ceramics, sparkling crystal chandeliers, 19th-century clocks and valuable paintings leave guests in no doubt that they are staying in a hotel of great tradition, one of the finest in Europe.


Dining facilities include the Goya Restaurant and Summer Terrace, an award winning restaurant overlooking the hotel's attractive terrace and garden and is famous for the beauty of its ancient tapestries. Velazquez Bar and Bar Jardin Ritz, 24-hour room service and Ritz Royal Service which is a catering service with refined table linen and silver cutlery, tailored exclusively to client's needs.
