One of the great things about Spain is the hospitality of most people.This hotel was no exception. It combined a sense of history and heritage together with comfortable accommodation,tasty food and helpful service. A special mention has to be David, the Director for food and drink and the Concierge,Carmen. David was an excellent host making sure that we ate well and was always available for a chat. He had an excellent knowledge of the hotel and its history and provided reliable recommendations for restaurants to try in Madrid. Carmen, arranged a fantastic night out for us, booking a good restaurant nearby(which we found out later also hosted Will and Kate!) and also arranged for a booking at an entertaining Flamenco show.
The location of the hotel was also good, with the Prado located a few meters away.
We truly felt at home at this hotel.The only issue I had was that the sun terrace was closed for renovations. Other than that, if I ever return to Madrid, I would certainly choose to stay at the Palace!
