Overview

A five-star hotel in the heart of Madrid, with the world's largest rooftop urban garden, plus fine dining and a high-end spa - includes breakfast

The Lowdown

A hip, five-star hideaway in the center of Madrid, Hotel Wellington offers a cool and airy place to hang out in between bouts of shopping and gallery-hopping in Spain’s stylish capital. Located in the elegant Salamanca neighborhood, the hotel is surrounded by some of the oldest and most impressive architecture in the city, and the nearby Metro makes it super easy to explore the rest of the sights.
At this TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence winner, you can relax with a cocktail after a packed day of sightseeing, take in the view from above at the rooftop urban garden (the largest of its kind in the world) or recover from jam-packed days by unwinding in the swanky, 2,625-square-foot spa. When it comes to dining, you have six restaurants and bars to choose from, including a Michelin-starred sushi bar and a minimalist restaurant serving unique Basque haute cuisine.

Rooms

Bedrooms are chic, with silver and charcoal tones, floor-length curtains and spacious marble bathrooms filled with luxe toiletries. You can call on 24-hour room service and select just the right pillow for a perfect night’s sleep. Standard rooms are classically decorated, and Superior rooms mesh original features with a modern design.

Dining

Choose between six exceptional dining options, ranging from a Michelin-starred sushi restaurant to a stylish patisserie and an English-style pub. There’s also an impressive urban vegetable garden on the roof, supplying the hotel with delicious homegrown produce. In the spring and summer months, the outdoor terrace and pool is a lovely spot for an al-fresco lunch.

Spa

With 2,625 square feet of soothing space, Le Max Wellness Club Wellington and Clarins spa are home to an ice fountain, a sensations shower, a steam bath, a sauna, a relaxation area and Technogym equipment. There’s also a range of health and beauty treatments on offer, alongside a physiotherapist and a nutritionist.

Location

Use your chic hotel as a base to explore the Royal Palace, Plaza Mayor, Puerta del Sol, the fantastic museum triangle and the Campo del Moro gardens. The Western Park is lovely and well worth a visit, and purchasing a ticket to a local flamenco show is a must. Hotel Wellington is in the Salamanca neighbourhood, known for its fabulous Spanish architecture and the famous Retiro Park.

The Palace of Madrid (almost)
Orna L

One of the most beautiful buildings I have ever visited is a sentence that could easily summarize my experience at this property. Located right by the park and the nicest stores in town. It is also a walking distance to the oldest part of town.
The setting: ladies and gents , wait for it, if grand staircases made of marble and covered with mirrors on both sides of the grand entrance makes u feel like royalty, the Wellington is your spot! If a nice sized pool complete w a jacuzzi and fluffy towels complemented by a full service pool side bar is your thing, then you r certainly in the right place. The property is a gem. But a gem only becomes a jewel when afforded the right care. And care is the name of the game when it comes to hospitality. And the service at the establishment is outstanding to put it mildly. There’s everything from babysitting services, to room service, to handle and care of luggage and storage. And more importantly, everything is done w a smile. Now the ornaments on the handcrafted jewel, has to be the food. And the food is glorious. What a vacant word without putting it into the proper context.
THE BREAKFAST—— everything u could imagine, including a grand buffet of Asian food was served. And of course my numero uno, champagne!
In short, probably one of the most glam hotels I have ever stayed at.

I've stayed at the Hotel Wellington a few times over the years. I keep returning because it truly has 5-Star service! Compared to many new hotels with flashy facilities or modern re-branding, the Wellington has been around for many decades, but most importantly, it does not feel old. The furnishings are classic and well maintained; the English Bar has become a home away from home. The concierge service has assisted me in the middle of the night, and made numerous arrangements for me all the easier because I live in Singapore. Martin at the front desk exemplified the confident experience when I asked him for a simple restaurant recommendation, cigar purchasing advice and help in mailing two packages. What I especially liked was the way he treated old time clients or a first time visitor with same warmth and attention. I will always stay at the Wellington and certainly recommend it to friends. Not to mention, it is a 5-Star value!
