Wellington Hotel
4 nights in Madrid
The hotel is very close to the Retiro Park and nestled amongst exclusive shops. The metro is nearby and the tourist open air bus, which we used to get around and see the sights, is directly outside the hotel. It was very hot (August) but the air conditioning in our room was perfect. We stayed on the 7th floor. The room had a nice sized terrace and access to the Wellington Club room - which we made good use of! All the staff at the hotel were friendly and extremely professional. Breakfast was lovely and the hotel itself is beautiful. The pool area was a godsend given the heat. I think we will be back as Madrid is a beautiful city and the hotel was perfect.

Location was excellent, staff were super friendly and even organised an extra something special for my other half's birthday which was greatly appreciated. The Wellington club was an added bonus. Would stay here again.
