Commissioned by King Alfonso XIII in 1912, the newly restored Westin Palace Madrid is set near the Prado, historic monuments and some of the best tapas restaurants in town. It was ranked as one of the world's best hotels by Condé Nast Traveler’s 2010 Gold List. Topped by an enormous stained glass dome, the regal building has been a center of Spanish society for almost 100 years. It boasts meeting rooms, restaurants, bars, shops, a beauty parlour, and a WestinWORKOUT® Fitness Studio overlooking the city. The 467 guest rooms and spacious suites have been updated with all modern conveniences and with the Heavenly® Bed and Heavenly® Bath. Rooms are exquisitely decorated with antique furnishings and original mahogany and plaster details.

the high cost for internet usage.
Close to museums
Over priced! Everything is outrageously expensive. Staff is not interested in the guest. No room facilities for heating water for coffee or tea. Not enough towels.
The location was perfect because our goal was to be able to visit the three major art museums within walking distance to our hotel. Parks, restaurants and shopping were also right there. The concierge was excellent in making flamenco arrangements for us.
When I called ahead to check our reservation, the clerk answering the phone said that we would need to stay in one queen size bed and that to have twin beds would cost 500 euros per night. When we arrived, the registration clerk upgraded us to two twin beds at no extra cost.
Great bed and amazing pillows....very quite despite its central location.
Quite expensive breakfast (buffet) for what is offered.
Have stayed there before and was 'welcomed back'. It is ideally located, overall a very pleasant hotel. Excellent staff.
Location of hotel
Comfort of bed was spolt by squeaking everytime you moved in the bed!
Staff was unfriendly
Great location. Beautiful old hotel. Concierge excellent.
Breakfast very expensive. Staff was not well informed of the hours of restaurant.
The calm atmosphere and the beautiful interieur. Luxurious but still nice and comfortable.
The price of two drinks was about the same as the price of one flight ticket back to Oslo . . . .. .
