An old Madrid classic, this former palace of the Duque de Lerma opened as a hotel in 1911 and was Spain’s second luxury hotel. Ever since it has looked out across Plaza de Neptuno at its rival, the Ritz, like a lover unjustly scorned. It may not have the world-famous cachet of the Ritz, but it’s not called the Palace for nothing.

Rooms are suitably luxurious – the 1999 renovations cost €144,000 per room – and they're large with a classic style. After the snooty Ritz banned actors and other public performers in the early 20th century, the Palace became the hotel of choice for celebrities – Mata Hari lived here during WWI and her ghost reportedly occupies the corridors, while Hemingway, Dalí and Lorca were all regulars in the cocktail bar.

Quick description

This luxury hotel is located in the heart of Madrid, within the Art Triangle. The Parliament is across the road, and the Royal Palace and Opera House within walking distance. The Westin Palace offers elegant facilities only 300 metres from the Prado, Thyssen and Reina Sofia Museums. The hotel is famous for its beautiful stained-glass dome. Here a fantastic buffet breakfast with music is served. Rooms at the Palace are elegant and modern. They have the award-winning Westin Heavenly Bed and Heavenly Bath. There is also antique furniture and an internet television. Cocktails, coffees and aperitifs are offered in the Palace Bar, under the dome. Offering live music, the bar was made famous by Ernest Hemingway in his novel The Sun Also Rises.
