I stayed at the Ritz for one night on a brief business trip. It was also the night that Athletico Madrid reached the semi final of the Europa cup. It was hard not to get caught up in the enthuasiasm of the supporters, I hadn't realised that the square outside the Hotel was the meeting point for celebrations!
I checked in very late in the evening and the night desk staff were swift and very welcoming. The room wasn't too big but beautifully furnished in the old European style but with all modern amenities that you require when travelling for work and plenty of wall sockets for plugging in lots of gadgets. The bed was very comfortable, beautiful linens, it was just unfortunate that the celebrations went into the night and every citizen of Madrid (and their car) where outside. However, it was all very good natured and not the fault of the hotel.
Breakfast the following morning was excellent, service was well up to 5 * standard. It's also next door to the Prado Museum ( a definite plus when you only have 10 minutes to see a Velasquez!)
