Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Lovely staff, very comfortable boutique hotel, in a great position, quiet and well appointed. Could have done without the hired in singer and the lack of a dining room detracted from what really was a good experience.

Hotel's Favourite
Second time staying here and had the Penthouse Suite with Jacuzzi. Magnificent Suite and almost perfect but no view Staff couldn’t have been friendlier and the valet parking is a real bonus. Great location and close to everything especially some top class restaurants I’m retired and love to drive round Europe and this is a must to stay in

High standing hotel located in a street in the center of Madrid's nightlife. The rooms are comfortable and equipped with many services and the assistance of the staff at the reception as well as that on the floors is excellent. Good cuisine and the offer at the bar. Strongly recommended to visit Madrid comfortably.

Great stay at a wonderful gem of a boutique hotel. Staff could not be more helpful and pleasant. Location is perfect! I have stayed at many five star resorts and this one really is at the top. The lobby and bar are really beautiful and Alex at the bar has you covered!

This is an exceptional hotel. The staff are wonderful. We had the suite with the hot tub and it was perfect for catching the sun. Breakfast in the restaurant was sublime. The hotel is well located and surrounded by lots of good eateries. We will definitely be returning again next year. Highly recommended.

Dear kamul, Thank you very much for your kind message and feedback. It is truly an honor to read such kind words, for us, it was a real pleasure to welcome you. It is true that when looking for a centric but quiet location, Gran Hotel Inglés is your best option! We are only 3 minutes away from Plaza del Sol and close to many of the most important museums in Madrid. The “Barrio de las Letras” is filled with small Spanish shops and coffee places but also a lot of history. We take pride on our staff and its desire to provide a personalized service and we will pass on your lovely comment to the whole team that creates Gran Hotel Ingles. We are glad that you noticed our effort of making every stay unforgettable and unique. We are very pleased to read that you felt comfortable during your stay, because this is our key priority. We would love to welcome you back whenever your travels bring you to Madrid. Kindest regards. THE GHI TEAM

We have stayed in luxury accommodations all over the world and this hotel provided truly exceptional service in a great location to our family of 2 adults and two kids aged 7 and 8. The staff at this hotel is truly dedicated to making your trip special. The concierge department truly goes out of its way to assist, which allowed us to maximize our experiences for the few days we spent in Madrid: - the hotel organized dedicated transport to a Real Madrid game on our day of arrival - the hotel organized and installed a game console for our kids - the hotel organized a bouquet of flowers in my wife‘s favorite color and gluten free treats with a free bottle of champagne for our anniversary - the hotel organized highly capable child care on very short notice when we wanted to spend a night out - the hotel organized a flamenco experience on short notice - the concierge desk offered us their WhatsApp contact, which allowed us to get guidance while out in the city as well as pre-order room service Food & Entertainment: - Breakfast offerings are plentiful and the staff remembered food and drink preferences of our entire family within a day or two! - The dinner at the hotel was excellent, overall food quality was great, speciality cocktails with table side smoking flasks where even more impressive - the hotel also puts on live music (starting Thu-Sat) as well as a brunch performance on Sunday, which we enjoyed and would recommend Family Friendliness: - Most luxury boutique hotels are not particularly family oriented or friendly, the Gran Hotel Ingles is an exception - Our kids received special welcome gifts (crayons, kid toiletries etc), as well as requested game console and games - The staff took time to get to know them, interact and joke with them, leading our 8 year old to state that this is the friendliest hotel he ever stayed in - The hotel as a jacuzzi room, that can be reserved for exclusive use by a family - which means there is a small pool experience to be had which our kids looked forward to every day - The connecting rooms suite worked really well as a family apartment in Madrid - Room service menu has a dedicated kids section - The reception area has a treats section where kids can pick out a few free treats each day - The hotel is in easy walking distance to retiro park (boat rides, chess games, playgrounds etc) Staff Interactions This is one of the few places I have stayed where everyone from the cleaning to reception staff greeted you with joy and a smile. I have stayed at multiple Four Seasons with noticeable lower staff engagement and joy… Rooms & Cleanliness Overall the hotel is tastefully decorated, our rooms were relatively large by European standards. Rooms were cleaned meticulously each day, including wet mopping the floors. We would recommend a higher floor at the hotel as the street below gets loud during weekends. Special thanks to Alfonso, Lorena, Nuria, Prince - who all went out of their way to make our stay

Once in a while you visit a hotel where everything is just perfect - location, the staff, the room, the service, the food & drink, the entire experience! Gran Hotel Ingles in Madrid offers such experience. Located right between Retiro Park and Plaza Mayor, in convenient walking distance, it is a perfect location for exploring Madrid by foot and feels like an oasis to return to. A special thank you to Lorena (Concierge) and Jordan (Bar) for making our visit extra special!
