Beautiful hotel, great service, nice rooms and a great location. Walking distance to so much. Easy metro ride to the rest. The breakfast was included with our room package which was much appreciated. We did the Wellington Club package which we really enjoyed after being out in the heat all day, a nice cold drink and a little snack was... More

Beautiful hotel in a great location. Great restaurant. Lovely pool. Great service. Could have done with some small touches in the room; an iron and a tea/coffee maker. It is an absolutely stunning old fashioned hotel with charm and class. I would highly recommend to stay here.

It was close to metro and walking distance from parks and museums. The hop on bus stopped right in front as well. Breakfast was outstanding. We had a good laugh with the staff. Could do with a more affordable bar, but there were reasonable places close by.

I first came to this hotel for pleasure many years ago and it was the kind of 5 star that really deserved only four. Now, 2015, I am back on business in this awesome town and decided to come back really for sake of melancholy... I was shocked by the improvements made and such a wonderful and friendly staff! I...

The entrance and the social areas of the hotel have an excellent level of good taste, luxury and quality. The room instead looks outdated. The colours of the different elements do not match: gree-greyish marble with odd salmon closet. You can hear babies and noise from the adjacent rooms.

We have been staying at this hotel for over twenty years. It's a classic hotel known in Spain for hosting all the "Toreros" bullfighters. It's also been hosting Latin Americans with a Spanish connection for several generations. We always get treated very well here. Breakfast is memorable, with a bit of the best of Spain on offer (great artisanal breads,... More

I stayed here just for 3 nights with a friend in July. The positives are as follows: Location is good. Retiro metro station is just a few minutes walk away and it's easy to get to by Metro from the airport. It's a quiet neighbourhood and right near the park which is nice to visit in the morning for a... 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.
