Review:   Recommended for: International luxury crowd

Pros: This is the top luxury hotel in Madrid. It, along with the Ritz has the best location in town. Set between The Prado, Tyssen and Reina Sofia you cannot beat this place for the art scene. Very tradtional luxury. Rooms are spacious and have all the stuff. Public areas are grand! For someone wanting a big splurge....this is the place. Service is wonderful and friendly. This is a Starwood property and Virtuoso so it is best to book this with me to get the amenities and benefits.

Cons: A bit pricey....but hey it's the Palace.
