Michelin Guide
"Superb guestrooms furnished in classic-style."
Rough Guide
"A colossal, sumptuous hotel with every imaginable facility, a spectacular, glass-covered central patio, and luxurious rooms – plus none of the snootiness of the Ritz across the road."
Frommer's
"One of the largest, most ornate Victorian-style hotels in the city, with politicians, artists, and celebrities among its distinguished clientele." Full review
Concierge
"Art lovers will find this the perfect base, with the Thyssen-Bornemisza Museum and the Prado across the street and the Reina Sofía nearby."

Ask for a room at the front facing the Neptuno fountain—the higher the better, as the top floors have great views of Madrid's ornate central post office.
Lonely Planet
"Its name may not have the world-famous cachet of the Ritz, but it’s not called the Palace for nothing and is extravagant in all the right places." Full review

Michelin Guide
"The Tryp Ambassador has a stately atmosphere with an attractive patio typical of this exclusive district of the city."
Frommer's
"The Ambassador doesn't feel like part of a hotel chain. It's far too individual and still largely resembles the elegant baronial palace it was." Full review
Time Out
"Located in a former palace, the Ambassador manages to retain a vaguely baronial air despite being part of a chain." Full review

"The 183-room mid-range Tryp Ambassador is a Madrid branch of Tryp by Wyndham." Full review
Star Service
"This smart midrange hotel stands well above the Tryp Cibeles, occupying the renovated mid-19th-century palace of the Dukes of Granada" Full review

The 21 well-priced junior suites (twice the size of standard accommodations) are worth requesting for their superior decor, outdoor terraces, and quality finishes.
