Good location by Retiro Park and 'Museum Row.' Good access to Metro and Old City. But like any large hotel make sure you get the right room. We came off our flight jet-lagged and exhausted and fell into bed in a darkened room. We didn't give it a thought until we woke up and it was still dark because our... More

Excellent hotel. It is well located I the charming quarter of Salamanca. It is close to the important touristic points of Madrid but not in a bustling area like Gran Via. Impeccable service. Everything we asked for was promptly answered. Bed and bath linen are very soft. There is a coffee shop attached to the hotel where you can have... More

Located close to Retiro Park and within walking distance of all the major attractions, the Wellington Hotel benefits from location, whilst being outside of the main tourist drags. The staff are friendly, the breakfast was excellent and there is a good gym should you need to work off some tapas! It was just a shame that the weather wasn't warm... More

Whuch in itself a place to see in Madrid - probably one of the biggest and most beautoful parks I have ever seen. Also Prada museum is is 8-10 min by foot. Other attractions of Madrid city centre are... More

We too were there for the Champions League quarter finals. We actually watched a game in the hotel in a special room they set up. Didn't find anyone snooty. Everyone was very helpful and we had a lovely room. The Japanese restaurant in the hotel was great and very accommodating even though we heard it was hard to get a... More

Just an overnight stay for the Champions league quarter finals. Great location and has 2 good restaurants. The Basque restaurant is supposed to be great. Tried room service and the breakfast and both were great. Nice rooms. Overall excellent. Try the restaurant Eudlis opposite the hotel - it's fantastic food.

This was our least favourite hotel in Madrid. After travelling round spain we were really looking forward to staying here. However, the customer service was awful and there was an air of superiority amongst the staff. We stayed when madrid was very hot and arrived to check in in beach wear type clothes. Staff were rude and treated us like... More

This is an old fashioned Eurpean establishment with class. Outstanding location. Nice and courteous service. The breakfast was the same everyday, no variation in hot offerings buffet. I respectfully beleve hotel is not worth what they charge in general, though.

Perhaps rating this hotel too critically may be a bit unfair, as many aspects of staying there are positive. Its best aspect is its location, which is perhaps, the most ideal in Madrid. It is a moderate walk from the Prado Museum, and sits in the best neighborhood in the city - a neighborhood similar to Madison Avenue and 76th... More

Staying in Barrio de Salamanca

Neighborhood Profile
Barrio de Salamanca
Broad, tree-lined avenues with pretty streetlights frame the neighborhood of Barrio Salamanca. With beautiful condominium buildings that make up most blocks in this area, this part of town is refined and quiet. It is also host to a few of the city's large shopping avenues, including Calle Serrano and Calle Jose Ortega y Gasset. A walk down these streets will reveal upscale chains, small boutiques, and plenty of opportunities for shopping or checking out the stylish displays. The locals here are polished and fashionable, the atmosphere is leisurely, and the lush Retiro Park on the southern border is yet another opportunity to enjoy the outdoors. A stroll through Barrio Salamanca is all about admiring the beautiful architecture, window-shopping, and people-watching in this upper-crust corner of Madrid.
