The service and the stuff, the Breakfast all of that and the buty of the hotel

This is truly one of the most outstanding hotels in the world

staff are really rude, iuncharming and takes hours to get attention

Nice hotel wit great location and beautiful grounds but I am used to a more personalized experience and this hotel only does the bare minimum... I prefer boutique hotels for their unique service and this place although 5 stars needs to have more attention to details!

Great everything. Parking outside a bit of a chore.

I don’t usually stay at 5 star hotels, but it’s nice to feel pampered every once in a while and the Gran Melia Palacio def9nitely doesn’t disappoint. All the details are perfect. Staff is exceedingly friendly. Perfect place to stay if you’re in Madrid and want to feel special.

The staff is very attentive. Close to the main tourists spots, in a very quiet street. From the check in, till the check out, had a very nice experience with its deco art paintings all over the place. Very clean place. The Dos Cielos Restaurant hosts a several courses menu i would recommend. Would stay again for the next time. I would suggest, fix the glass door on the bathroom room 104, cause it leaks water. Breakfast was great!, just would add a eggs/pancakes station. =) RECOMMENDED

Like a few other Melia hotels we have stayed at, this was an absolutely wonderful experience for a large family. We are a family of 10--grandparents, kids and grandkids. The hotel was warm and welcoming and provided every amenity for such a large and boisterous group. We had arranged for access to the "red" room and it was a great spot to have a snack and cool down during our adventures in Madrid. The pool deck was wonderful and there were many children there from all over the world for the grandkids to play with. The location was perfect with easy access to all the main attractions of Madrid as well as a great park for the kids just across the street. An absolute gem.

I had problems with my reservation. They ended up charging me twice. They are very bad in communication.

Great experince at his hotel, located in the historic center of Madrid, next to the opera house. Very clean, well appointed, friendly staff (particularly Rosa at the city expert desk), great breakfast with a variety of foods.
