“Well appointed and well located”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 11, 2013

Ideally situated for art and gallery lovers as well as for good restaurants and bars.

Our room faced the side street which was a bit of a problem on the first night when the room was very warm and opening the window was noisy but on the other nights it was more comfortable-not the best air con we have experienced.

If you are tempted by the indoor pool it is only 15 ft long!

Nice walk in shower , good tv, comfortable bed and friendly helpful staff all in a good location-this hotel ticked all of our boxes

Room Tip: Play safe on noise and heat and take an inside room

I stay here when I am in Madrid and there is really no reason to search for anything else. The location is perfect, rooms are nice, beds very comfortable, free WiFi, great breakfast.....and a Spa. I am trying to think of something that would bring the rating down, but........no. I can´t..

I stayed here a couple of weeks ago with my 11 year old daughter. I chose this hotel at the suggestion of a friend. Did he ever make a good choice! If you are in Madrid for the "Golden Triangle" of arts, you are literally across the street!. The Prado lies about a block down the road. The rooms are small but very quiet and comfortable. The restaurant offers a great breakfast with excellent service. The bathrooms are larger than I expected and were very comfortable to share. This is not a luxury hotel BUT a very comfortable hotel.
Another VERY important issue arose during our stay. My 11 year old came down with an infection and high fever. The staff took over for me. They called a doctor and were very concerned about us. The Doctor came almost immediately. He was professional and got my daughter back to better health with a prescription for antibiotics immediately. Being away from home is tough enough, but in a foreign country away from our doctors and family made it tougher.
The only source of irritation was that the rooms were very hot. We had to open our balcony door at night.
Thanks to the Radisson Blu for a great experience.

Room Tip: Choose a room with a balcony overlooking the restaurant across the street from the hotel. You can le...

We stayed in Madrid at the Radisson Blu because it was close to a business hotel where my husband had meetings and close to all the museums we both wanted to visit. We upgraded from a standard room to a superior with breakfast, which gave us a balcony room 209 on the plaza. I already read about the complaints concerning the heat of the room, I asked the front desk to come lower the temp, which they did to 17c, but it was still too warm and stuffy at night and we cracked the door, so we did hear a bit of noise. Perhaps best to stay with the less expensive inner court (no view but walls) view and open the windows to quiet. Maybe not a problem after winter???

We did not use the pool, because it was cold outside in feb and the little pool has cold water. The fitness room is two pieces of equipment and just silly, but this you will find all over Europe at 4 and 5 star hotels, unless you get to a coastal resort.

Most of the complaints about the Rad Blu are the same as other hotels, because this is Europe in a big city (same for NYC for that matter), fitness is nothing, the room is very small, the beds are hard. . .get over it. This aside, it is a perfect hotel in an absolutely perfect location. Nice clean modern decor.

Our afternoon arrival day, we walked to Reina Sofia in just a few minutes and enjoyed seeing Picasso's Guernica among other 20th century works. Found a great tapas bar (directly to your right out of the Rad Blu entrance) where we ate happily often in our three days. Day two I walked across the street to the great Prado Museum. Day three I walked about 15 min to the major shopping area and spent the morning. My husband joined me for a full afternoon at the Museo Thyssen another 5 min walk. Extraordinary collection from Gothic to Pop Art. . .much more American art than I have seen any where in Europe.

Lots of shops and restaurants directly to your left out of the entrance. We enjoyed the lovely breakfast buffet at the hotel each morning. Ask and they will made to-order eggs or special coffees. We did not use the hotel restaurant for dinner because we eat earlier and did tapas instead. The wifi was excellent. With business class the movies were included and we watched a movie each night.

Room Tip: Least expensive room face a blank interior court, while the superior have a balcony facing toward th...

We ended our family trip to Spain in Madrid and used the Radisson Blu as our base because of its proximity to the Prado and triangle of museums along the Paseo del Prado. The Radisson was quiet, clean and would be excellent for business travelers that want to stay in a more touristy part of town. Staff speak English and do so well...better than at other hotels we stayed at during our trip. Rooms are not particularly large, but they are comfortable - and space comes at a premium in Europe. In a nutshell, the hotel is not particularly romantic, but the location is hard to beat for art lovers...or tourists who want a quick shot to Atocha station to catch the AVE to Toledo, Sevilla and other spots for the day.

a only had a night there but i think i did a lot. don't forget to order a facial or massage, the downstairs pool is a relaxing place to wind down from a long day of travel. the hotel is very nicely located, walk out of the hotel and go left and you will find amazing restaurants and bars. i went to 2 different blues bars in that one night just a few safe blocks from the hotel.

very well run hotel, would highly recommend and would absolutely return.

Room Tip: get out of the hotel and go explore the city

The hotel is placed in a cozy corner in the heart of Madrid.
The staff is helpful and service is good for this kind of hotel. In this regard, my expectations were definitely exceeded.
And then there comes the room. I had one with a window to the interior patio, meaning no views but not noise either. Good to rest. The impact I got when I went into the room for the first time was big. It was bright and busy, even though there was no one in there. It was due to the huge picture walls all around. Once you get used to it, it is nice -my advise that you play with the lights a bit.
The bathroom was nice, modern, well equipped and roomy. The only problem was that the shower didn't have a curtain nor a glass wall, and the whole place was like a swimming pool after a shower.
If you want to visit Madrid, this is definitely a good place to stay.
