Pros: Great location, clean rooms, strong AC, shower pressure was very good, and the room is quiet considering the noise outside the hotel.
Cons: The wifi was spotty and slow.
Pros: Excellent hotel. Recently renovated. Conveniently located in centre of city. Great staff. Warm and friendly. Hop off and on bus tour close by.
Pros: This was one of my favorite hotel stays in my life. I was traveling with my husband. We really enjoyed the ocean view (We also saw what the city view would be, and I'm sure it would be nice). The location was excellent, right on the water but also a very short walk into old town. The staff was the nicest and most helpful in Spain, especially the concierge, who gave great recommendations for everything we wanted to do.
Cons: Location, staff, view, concierge.

Cons: At 5:40 in the morning intruders entered our room as we slept. They entered with flashlights through a side door and only left when we began screaming. It was a terrible experience. The hotel's reception seemed very surprised but did nothing to reassure us that we were safe there.
Pros: Location, bellboy service,

Cons: We reserved a room with breakfast thru 'get a room' and surprised to see that it was not a buffet breakfast!!! for getting the buffet breakfast we needed to add some more money....
Not all the recommendations of the concierges were good, sometimes it seemed like they recommended places that they had personal interests/connections in.
Pros: Old world charm and location. Great lobby and dining rooms
Cons: Room furnishings and hall carpets need refreshing
Pros: Staff was delightfully enthusiastic. Setting was beautiful!
Pros: The beds were amazingly comfortable, the housekeepers were not only very amusing but extraordinarily nice. The hotel was insanely clean and had a very comfortable feel to it, as if a lot of fancy people had been through it over the years. The location is good, but not great, for accessing most of the touristy stuff in Madrid. But I found the Prado (directly beside the Ritz) to be horrifically overcrowded compared to some of the other museums like Sofia Reina just down the street.
Note: Not really easy to access via metro, I'd recommend taking a taxi to/from.
Cons: Take the following review with a grain of salt. I am a young person who grew up poor and wanted, for once, the "Ritz" experience:
While I am a big fan of trying new things, I have to say that the Ritz experience just wasn't for me. I don't mean to be crass, but if I had a fistful of fives - I can think of a few places I'd rather spend it than tipping the endless stream of people trying to help me with things.
Additionally, there is a little doll that you place on your door if you do not wish to be disturbed. Note: Don't leave the doll up for very long, because if you do, they will call your room until you answer so that they can ask when the next time they can come in your room is. I nap maybe... 2-3 times per year at most, and I am severely irritated that they felt the need to call during my biannual nap to ask me when they can come in my room. Instead of changing my sheets 3X per day, how about leaving me the hell alone when I have my DO NOT DISTURB DOLL up?
Perhaps I am not cut out for the lifestyle, but I don't want/need people treating me like a helpless child, yet simultaneously making me feel "lower" than they are. Every time I offered a "no thanks, I don't need a taxi, I'm walking" or walked into the hotel from the street, I received these weird looks of incredulity/disdain that I didn't particularly care for. When I brought my own luggage downstairs on checkout I absolutely horrified the front desk attendant.
Why the need to treat people like this? I have no idea. My recommendation? Take the $500 per night you'd spend here for the standard room and split it in half. Take $250 / night to spend on some other hotel's suite. Take the other $250 and stick it back in your pocket.

Pros: The common area has air con. It's a nice area to hang out and chill before you go back to your bedroom. Some staff is friendly.
Cons: There is no air conditioner in all the rooms. If you don't like to sweat during the night, don't choose this hostel in the summer. It's very hot/stuffy and uncomfortable.
Pros: the location
Pros: You are in the heart of Madrid! Welcome! It is just great beeing that close to the Gran Via which is basically the soul of Madrid. The rooms were for that price more than adequate and included a great TV!
Cons: There is no 24/7 reception but you get a key.
Pros: It was right in the city center and close to a lot of the main sites.

Cons: Lots of street noise at night time

Pros: I could not believe how clean it was .Excellant!

Pros: The hotel staff were friendly and the hotel was placed in the center of Madrid. Te rooms were tidy and cleaned daily.
Cons: The hotel staf didn't know English and this was a bit difficult as were able to communicate easily. We booked a non-smoking room and we got a smoking room instead. The air-conditioning devices were not taken care of and the circulated air smelled not so nice. Near by the hotel, on the same street there were prostitutes and I don't think it's appropriate for the prestige of the hotel.

Cons: Rooms are small, showers are very small, walls are a bit thin, if you have an interior room there is no view at all.
Pros: The location is good and is only about fifteen minutes walking from Plaza Mayor. The surrounding neighborhood has a lot of bars and stores.
Cons: The beds are EXTREMELY uncomfortable--the floor is a more comfortable bed than the actual bed. When we inquired at the front desk, reception rudely said that the mattresses are changed every two years and there is nothing they can do. There were no other rooms available. The room is in desperate need of updates. The restaurant that is a part of the hotel is HORRIBLE. We ordered drinks at the bar. One of our drinks sat at the bar even though the bartender said the server would bring the drink to the table. We had to get the drink. The sandwiches we ordered were cold--even though they were to be hot. The bread was overcooked. The steak was overcooked--likely re-heated. Disgusting.
For a three star hotel, this is unacceptable. A hostel would have been a better choice...even if it meant sharing a room with ten people. We will not stay again.

A new hotel comes to light in Madrid with a new soul: the gourmet hotel. We are talking about the EXE MONCLOA, which is born together with its twin, the Moncloa Market and opens its doors to the public during the first quarter of 2013. The ground floor of the building encompasses booths, eating places and gastronomic sales points arranged in the manner of a traditional market. There are numerous options, each offering a different speciality: Spanish ham, fresh seafood, local fruit and vegetables, wine store, wok, sushi, tapas, etc. The eight floors above are devoted to 161 bright, modern rooms.Situated opposite one of the Moncloa transport terminal entrances, the EXE MONCLOA occupies one of the capital citys best locations.Apart from the fantastic, wide culinary offer, the EXE MONCLOA provides other, excellent arguments in its favour: a gym, sauna, steam bath, outdoor swimming pool and an impressive roof-top terrace with panoramic vistas over the Castilian plain and the Guadarrama mountain range. The hotel also has three fully equipped meeting rooms.The pool surface is 17m2 and will be open to the public from June 15 to September 15.

Cons: A little shabby.loose tiles in the bedroom.scuffed woodwork, dirty wall?
Pros: I liked the accommodations, the rooms where cozy, had nice TV, clean, and comfortable. Beautiful pool, and lobby.
Cons: The Staff, most of them with attitude (except for the Housekeeping), always appearing angry, or that they were disturbed by our being there. This is a hotel, who caters to people from all over the world, it is not a family restaurant in a little town. ROOM SERVICE was closed at 4:00pm, unheard of in any hotel I stayed around the world. Hotels should pamper their guest! not scare them away!
