Welcome to The Ritz, located in enviable surroundings, close to the Prado and the Thyssen Museum in the heart of Madrid.
Hotel Ritz has long provided the capital's most elegant entertainment. To stay at the Hotel Ritz is to step inside a baroque palace, an incredible experience you will never forget.
The hotel's location alone constitutes a luxury. The Hotel Ritz is situated between the beautiful Retiro Park, the elegant Teatro de la Zarzuela, and Madrid's most important museums: the Prado, the Thyssen Bornemisza and the Centro de Arte Moderno Reina Sofia.
The hotel is within walking distance from the financial district and Madrid's Stock Exchange.
Inspired by King Alfonso XIII’s desire to build a luxury hotel to rival the Ritz in Paris, the Hotel Ritz in Madrid shares with the Ritz hotels in Paris and London a reputation as one of the original grand luxury hotels in Europe. The Hotel Ritz opened its doors in 1910 in the presence of His Majesty King Alfonso XIII. The hotel was designed and built under the personal supervision of the legendary hotelier Cesar Ritz, from whom the name was adopted. The Ritz has played a crucial role in the life of Madrid for over a century. Still today, the hotel remains a key attraction for many to this European capital.
