The 8 Best Hotels and Suites in Madrid


Located in the Golden Triangle, the Palacio del Retiro is within a stone’s throw of three world-class museums: the Prado, Reina Sofía and Thyssen Bornemisza.

The stunning aesthetics of this restored twentieth century palace, including its wrought iron staircase, original marble moldings and stained glass windows, have earned the building a Patrimonio Nacional (National Heritage) listing. Owner Antonio Catalan has designed the furniture himself in line with the building’s design aesthetic. Services include a personal shopper, private museum tours and a butler service.


Why we love it: What really distinguishes the AC Palacio del Retiro from the AC Santo Mauro is its location. With the Suite Deluxe you can choose from exceptional views of both Calle Montalbán and Retiro Park. The suite has striking original moldings, large windows, a marble fireplace and wooden floors, and there is a fully equipped lounge and a two-person hydro-massage bathtub. The VIP experience is enhanced by a separate reception area and personalized air conditioning.
