Traveled with my wife for our 15th wedding anniversary trip to Madrid & Barcelona. Stayed at this property for the first leg of our trip in Madrid. The hotel was great and was very quiet and the location was excellent. The staff of the hotel always greeted you with a smile and the service was wonderful. We were upgraded to...

This is a great find in the Marriott family of hotels. We have stayed in The Autograph Collection before and been impressed. This is a very well run high end boutique hotel in a former palace. Our room was spacious , well appointed and an upgrade due to our Marriott status. Suggest you shop their website and get the breakfast...

We stayed for 5 nights Nov 2016. The hotel is in a wonderful location, across from Parque del Retiro around the corner of Puerta de Alcala. It is a luxurious boutique hotel, a vibe which is what most of the Autograph Collection properties under the Marriott umbrella is going for. We booked a deluxe room, with a view on one...

This was my least favorite Marriott AC hotel I've ever stayed in. The customer service is non existent. The food is tasteless. As Platinum Marriott members our assigned room was small and a poor location. This has never happened. The room was dark and across from house keeping. If you plan to come to Madrid, don't stay here.

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...

Great location and staff at this small, former palace that is in a great location for exploring Madrid. The rooms are spacious and quiet while outside, the best parts of Madrid are at your fingertips.

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...

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.
