Hotel Villa Real 5*
Su opinión es importante para nosotros
This is a nice, practical hotel with good, clean rooms. We stayed there with our 12 year old son and the duplex suite was very comfortable. The location is superb as you can walk to the main attractions like the three art museums, Puerto del Sol etc. The palace is only a short taxi ride away. Overall, a good place to stay and the staff is very helpful as well.
We had a great weekend staying at this hotel which is perfectly located just a few minutes walk from the Prado Art Gallery.
Our room was on the front overlooking the Plaza de las Cortes. The Spanish Deputies building is also on this square so quite a heavy police presence making the area feel very safe. The room was clean with a very comfortable mattress although the bed itself did feel a bit flimsy. The furniture and decor are quite dark making the room seem a bit old fashioned. However it was large, on two levels with all the normal amenities you would expect in a hotel of this type.
We didn't eat at the hotel, although the restaurant looked good. Breakfast was 23 euros, although if you booked the night before it was on offer at 18 euros. It still seemed a bit pricey so we opted to go out. There are plenty of bars and restaurants close by. The hotel bar was a good place for a drink after sightseeing or before going out for dinner. On checking in a voucher for a complimentary glass of champagne was given to us, which was a nice touch.
The staff were the best thing about this hotel, all excellent, very helpful and knowledgeable. Everyone we met from the doorman to the chambermaid was great and we wouldn't hesitate to recommend this hotel.
Whilst in Madrid we suggest buying a two day Madrid City Bus Tour ticket (25 euros or 21 euros for one day). There are two routes and you can jump on and off up to 10pm. Route one starts at the Neptune fountain, about five minutes walk away from the hotel and takes you through historical Madrid. There is a stop for route two (modern Madrid) on the Plaza de las Cortes or it also starts at the Neptune Fountain. This route takes you up to the Real Madrid football stadium. We found using the bus the best way to get our bearings and then return to the interesting looking places.
We enjoyed our stay at this hotel. We had a duplex room on the fifth floor which was comfortable and very quiet. The front desk staff was helpful with restaurant reservations. We loved Madrid and would definately stay here again.
Excellent location near the Thyssen and Prado, next to Four Seasons. Excellent restaurant: foie gras with sherry reduction, perfectly seasoned with kosher salt; veal filet, again perfectly seasoned.
Decent, but small wine list. Good service.
Connaissant très bien Madrid et y séjournant régulièrement car c'est notre ville de coeur, nous avons eu envie de découvrir cet hôtel excellement situé, face aux Cortes, dans le superbe centre ville, dans un quartier historique mais rénové, branché, charmant. Nous n'avons pas été déçus. La classe pour un excellent rapport qualité prix, nous avons bénéficié d'une promotion 14 euros le petit déjeuner, royal ! ( ne le prenez donc pas inclus au départ ). Chambres intérieures plus calmes sans doute mais donnant sur une cour intérieure, la vue sur la culotte de la abuela qui sèche n'est pas forcément glamour, heureusement il fait toujours soleil à Madrid et le linge est vite ramassé! La prochaine fois je demande vue sur la jolie place quand même. Confort, superbe décor (oeuvres d'art exposées dans les hôtels Derby, c'est très agréable ) coupe d'un très bon champagne offerte au bar design comme accueil c'est le plus très appréciable. Nous y retournerons avec plaisir.
