Hotels

Hotel Ritz by Belmond

Madrid, Spain

King Alfonso XIII opened Madrid’s Hotel Ritz by Belmond at the turn of the 20th century as a rival to the Ritz hotels in London and Paris. With its central location between Retiro Park and Teatro de la Zarzuela, and private garden facing the Prado Museum, the property instantly became the see and-be-seen hub of the city, a position it maintains today. All guest rooms and suites are individually designed and furnished with luxurious fabrics and handwoven rugs; the Presidential suites have antique furniture and classic marble bathrooms. The acclaimed Goya restaurant serves Chef Jorge González’s French- and Basque-influenced cuisine; perfect for late drinks on a summer evening is the more casual tapas restaurant Terrace and Gardens.
