Great location. This boutique-y hotel is directly across from Retiro Park, and within easy walking distance of all of Madrid's best art museums. Plus one can walk (or short cab) to pretty much everywhere else as well. Staff is friendly. Room was spacious (we did have a jr suite) and clean. I say boutiquey in the sense that there's not...

I wasn't sure what to expect as I normally stay at the Ritz or Four Seasons hotels but find the staff at this hotel to be LOVELY and very, very helpful! The hotel has 6 floors plus a spa & fitness center. 50-ish rooms so each floor has about 8 rooms and is very quiet! I got a standard room...

We had a very nice stay at the AC Palacio del Retiro. Our room was quiet, spacious and had good storage for our luggage. Two sinks in the bathroom was a pleasant convenience for me and my wife. After we checked out and went to the train station, I discovered that my passport was missing. I contacted the Hotel and...

I've traveled here twice and loved it both times. The rooms have great character - some are small and some are large (small but functional bathrooms) but the service really sets it apart. We requested tickets to see Real Madrid and the team at the front desk did everything to make it happen (and it didn't cost us an arm...

The hotel is beautiful. It is located directly across the street from El Retiro Park. The park is fabulous for running on trails or walking. The hotel room was spacious with a very large bathroom. We were a couple of floors off the street so it was very quiet. It is a romantic hotel because of its history and decor....

Gorgeous historic mansion with charming rooms. Across the street from Parque el Retiro attractions and an easy walk to the Prado museum for tourists. In the financial/commercial district for business travelers. Marriott membership reward points made it affordable on a budget. Staff was very helpful when I had a problem with some tickets (not related to the hotel.)

Staying in Paseo del Prado

Neighbourhood Profile
Paseo del Prado
The area around the elegant Paseo del Prado boulevard is much-visited by both locals and tourists. The world-famous Prado, the Reina Sofia, and the Thyssen-Bornemisza museums form a triangle of art and culture that spans this grand and beautiful avenue. On weekdays, the Prado Museum opens its doors for free after-work hours, drawing a diverse and excited queue of art lovers that wraps around the block. Palacio de Cibeles and Círculo de Bellas Artes cultural centers are other artsy hangouts to check out, with rooftop bars that provide impressive views of the city. While the Paseo del Prado and its roundabouts form a busy throughway in Madrid, a broad green pedestrian park in the middle is a calm and gorgeous place for a relaxing stroll. Just east of the museums, the Retiro Park is always a confluence of activity as families and friends of all ages take to the pretty paths and lawns to stretch their legs or to have a picnic.
