Hotel Petit Palace Santa Bárbara

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

The hotel is only a 30 minute drive from the airport and situated in a very lively neighbourhood! There is a good restaurant 3 minute walk away called Makilla if you need a quick bite. The rooms are clean and the breakfast is expansive. It's a 15 minute walk to the city centre

My partner was on business as I enjoyed the leisure of the city.The hotel is very well situated in the city,lively neighborhood.Welcoming staff,very cool designed and clean hotel room. Though no ventilation in the bathroom.We were over the interior court and found it to be enjoyably quiet.We were very fond of the breakfast staff!

This is a very modern hotel in a very alive area and also 10-15 minutes walk from the center. Just outside the hotel there are many tapas bars and places to grab a coffee or a drink, but Madrid is a city where in every corner you can find somewhere to have a beer or a quick bite! The rooms are not very big but very clean and modern, there is free wifi and there is also a laptop that you can use if you dont have your own device. What i reallt appreciated was the fact that since it was a champions league night, Beins sports channels were broadcasting and so i could enjoy the games! The breakfast is served in a nice area and its quite nice with a variety of healthy choices as well if you prefer! There is also a bar outside where you can have your drink but to be honest I preferred to visit a tapas bar next to the hotel. The personell was very friendly and this is always important! Whenever i wanted to take a taxi, one member of the staff always accomolished me outside and stop one for me in the street! There is no parking lot if i am not wrong and there is also no lobby where you can stay apart from the outside bar. For example when i wanted to work for an hour or two somewhere outside the room this was not possible. But anyway, not really important! Overall, very good choice! I will come back!

This hotel is ideally located, between the business area and the center "heart" of Madrid. Most visits can be done by walking a few minutes or taking the metro next door. The Petit Palace room was very quiet (we were overlooking the inside of the building), very recently decorated and fully functional. Personal attention is great and value for money is here. One - small - improvement point is the breakfast room which does not seat enough people and can be really cramped over holidays or week ends. However the healthy breakfast is GREAT and the carrot cakes not to be missed :-) A wonderful and memorable stay overall.

The perfect place to stay for our family. Walking distance to everything (such as Prado, Retiro, the royal palace, shopping), lots of restaurants nearby and though it has pulse it did not get to noisy. Great bathroom, they even had extra toothbrushes in the room (!) and everything is nice and clean. Reception is always at hand and helpful. Breakfast is great; cheese, ham, fruits, eggs and the best - home made chocolate truffles :-) Cant think of anything we missed. Hope to be back!

The Petit Palace is a charming little hotel on Santa Barbara square in Madrid. Very friendly staff. The room I had was fairly big but had an odd layout. Good breakfast buffet. It is slightly prices (which may be due to the general standards in Madrid) but definitely worth the money.

A great hotel with good sized rooms and lovely bathrooms. All the staff were very friendly and helpful and the prices of the drinks and the mini bar items were very reasonable. The room was very clean and the interior of the hotel was lovely. A two minute walk from lots of great places for breakfast, try the Purros rather than Churros as they are the thicker and larger version and better for dunking in your chocolate.

The hotel is placed very close to Plaza de Colon. The staff is very welcoming and helpful. The rooms have a very modern and cosy style and are equipped with everything, starting from mini bar to laptops for browsing the internet. The food served at the hotel's restaurant is very varied and I appreciated a lot their smoothies that taste really great. I hotel that delights everyone with its look and services. I definitely recommend it to anyone planning to visit Madrid!

Lovely hotel and staff very helpful, but do not book this hotel for a Saturday night if you wish to sleep. The techno music from the nearby nightclub was deafening and I did not sleep at all. It went on until 6.30am. The hotel is suitable for young people who plan to be out all night in the Chueca area.

I was so impressed with this lovely hotel. It is an old Palace which has been renovated and has a very contemporary feel, while still keeping some of the old features. It has the most beautiful staircase, ironwork with beautiful wooden steps. The rooms are very contemporary and have comfortable beds and nice linen. The toiletries are very generous and good quality. The breakfast is the best I have had abroad. They have a huge healthy section, with every superfood you can think off, homemade vegan truffles and brownies. They have healthy fruit shots, everything a health fanatic could want. They also have the normal fare of meats cheeses and cakes. The staff are lovely and helpful. They will spend time telling you where to visit and the sites are all in walking distance. Highly recommended.
