This gorgeous hotel is full of old-world charm with sparkling chandeliers, wide staircases covered with rich carpeting, and tapestries and frescoes that adorn the walls. The Rotonda & Asia Gallery restaurants are elegant establishments that are, on their own, worth a visit. Each floor has a sitting area with oriental style tables of black lacquered wood. The sofa's cushion is covered in a rich purple silk-like floral design --
a nice quiet area for photos.
The hotel is perfectly situated -- walking distance to major museums, Plaza del Sol and a stroll to Retiro Park. Behind the hotel are streets filled with gift shops, boutiques, quaint restaurants and tapas bars. The premium deluxe room is large with a king size bed, a table and two chairs. The bed linens are nice and supple. The bathroom, in pale yellow, has ample counter space for toiletries. The walls are well-insulated so you get a good night's sleep.
The staff is impressive. You get a warm welcome and efficient service at registration. In fact, they allowed me to check in the morning. A nice accommodation after a long flight. The concierge staff is knowledgeable and full of recommendations for restaurants. As for the General Manager, Mr. Flores, he treats you like a celebrity even if you aren't one. And if you happen to write to them in advance asking help with your plans, they are generous with advice. I'd definitely stay here again.More
