Very helpful staff. Had to change booking from a single room to a triple room during our stay due a change in circumstances. The hotel did the change without any problem and the difference in price was very little. Very central. Nice restaurants nearby. If I visit Madrid again, I'd happily stay at this hotel.

We have visited this hotel several times. The hotel is in nice area. The staff is very formal, not so many smiles, but polite. Breakfast is good. Airconditioning was very good in our room. Near Plaza Colon where you can take the City tour bus (recommended), take the ticket for 2 days, so you can easily get to the other... More

Outdated hotel, worn out towels, mildew smelly room, sheets with bad smell, bitter staff, specially Gemma who is one of the clerks, she is rude and not polite at all. There are much better options in Madrid, I would. Give them zero but the system do not allow it.

Although a good location this hotel needs a full refurbishment and 100% staff turnover. Old hotel, old staff, boring and depressive. Check in somewhere else please or you will be dissapointed. It is amazing how they can display themselves as a four star property. No english by the way.....

This hotel is mediocre. The location is okay, but may rooms have only a small window facing a small internal air vent. There is air conditioning noise from that, so keeping windows open is not very pleasant. There is hardly any light b/c the window is small and opens into a cylinder. The building had been grand in the past,... More

My wife and I stayed here on our honeymoon and had such a wonderful experience. We happily recommend Gran Hotel Velazquez. First of all, the location is perfect. Its in Salamanca which is probably the nicest neighborhood in Madrid. All the ultra high end shopping is in Salamanca as well as fine dining and delightful sidewalk cafes. The hotel is... More

Although the hotel could be better kept, the location couldn't be better. The staff is nice and helpful and most of the rooms particularly the suites are rather large and not so expensive. A confutable place to explore the city at reasonable prices. The buffet breakfast is very generous.

Week end with a friend just to go to the theater to see Barisnikov in a play. Arrived late but received fantastically. Very well situated and conserved.We think we are years back but with all the modernity needed. Amazing the staff. Great the drinks at the bar. Location the best in barrio Salamanca where you can go walking almost everywhere.

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.
