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."
"One of the largest, most ornate Victorian-style hotels in the city, with politicians, artists, and celebrities among its distinguished clientele." Full review
"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
