Fodor's Review

Alfonso XIII, about to marry Queen Victoria's granddaughter, encouraged and personally supervised the construction of this hotel—the most exclusive in Spain—for his royal guests, and he performed the opening ceremony in 1910. A monument to the Belle Époque, its salons are furnished with rare antiques, hand-embroidered linens, and handwoven carpets, and all rooms (which are gradually being revamped) have canopy beds; some have views of the Prado. The famous and pricey restaurant, Goya, serves a Sunday brunch feast from 7 am to 3:30 pm that's accompanied by the soothing strains of harp music; from February to May, you can enjoy chamber music during weekend tea and supper.
