This hotel is special. It is not the most modern, even though they give each guest IPads to use while you visit, but somehow you can feel it's fabulous history. There are photos of famous past guest in the lobby and some very unique sitting areas throughout the hotel. My room was very large with an incredible bathroom.

Frankly, my 8 year old and I stayed in the Wellington because it has an outdoor pool and pools are hard to come by in Madrid. Madrid in August is hot. The pool and lounge area are magnificent; deep blue and cool. Did I mention Madrid is hot in August? Well it is, and if you are traveling with children there is only so much of the heat they can tolerate.

The front of the hotel has a giant upright bull statute, probably 12 feel tall, dressed as a bull fighter which makes for a great photo op. The door men and reception people could not be more accommodating. Although this hotel is a little uppity , it is very kid friendly and I most definitely would recommend it. They even have bikes that you can use to tour the area.

The location is about 3 blocks from one of the grandest parks in Madrid and the Prado is only about 5 blocks. Quiet at night but very safe.

FYI - We ventured 2 blocks away on Velazquez and found several excellent inexpensive cafes. Great breakfasts and lunch.

This is a 5-star property just opposite the Retiro Park, within walking distance of the Prado Museum (20 mins), as well as the Thyssen & the Reina Sofia. Very well furnished, with large AC rooms & en suite bathrooms with twin-wash basins & a bidet. Free WIFI for the first 24 hrs., rooms serviced twice daily. A large dining room on the ground floor with quite an OK spread for breakfast, though no eggs-to-order counter or alternate cuisine.
A well-equipped Fitness Room, but opens only at 10am on weekends. Good facilities for business conferences & meeting rooms. Taxis available throughout the day at the Stand just opposite the Hotel, and Bus Stops & Metro (Retiro) are close by.

I missed coffee/tea service in the rooms, and strangely, no complimentary bottled water in the room. An electric iron in the room would have been more convenient & cheaper than the Pressing service. Also WiFi should be complimentary throughout one's stay in this class of Hotel.

Room Tip: An upper floor room away from the road is much quieter.

Had a very enjoyable stay at The Wellington! Breakfast was wonderful, especially the flan!
Our room was very large, however air conditioning could be improved. Had to call maintenance in to work on getting room cooler. He changed the vent and it seemed to help a bit. They did come to the room immediately and were very accommodating!
Location is great, beautiful area of town and walking distance to many attractions and restaurants.

Room Tip: We were on the side street but the view was very nice and it was extremely quiet!

if you like the formaility and hotel tradition of old europe this hotel has it. that feeling that you will be well taken care of and no question asked is too silly to be answered whether in spanish or any other language. the professionalism of all who are employed at this property is outstanding. one has the feeling that memebers of the staff have been there a long time. although a regular i have never eaten there as the location is barrio salamanca is exceptional for both dining and shopping...the bed is comfortable but the rooms can be small. only complaint is a noisy neighboring discoteck on ave. vasquez. on weekends the loud music continues to 4:00A.M. ask for a room facing the side street..sleep quality on this trip was poor..

Room Tip: again ask for a room facing the side street

Hotel picked for its location as we were going to a concert.

Opposite the park. Close to a metro station. Walking distance of the concert venue.

Our room was lovely. King sized bed, great bathroom and every single detail thought through.

Breakfast in our room was a little disappointing, perhaps we should have got up!

Room Tip: Email the hotel in advance. We booked a king and were allocated a twin?? Was sorted out at check in.
