Thsi si clearly not a 5 star hotel. The room service is non existent, they don't want to serve you anything you want, the floor is full of dust, the bed and pillows are super cheap, no taste at all, the breakfast is a joke. Well overall only the cleaning of the room is ok, but they come 3 times a day so pretty annoying. I would not recommend this hotel and I will not return for sure. Paying a suite 600 euro per night and not get to rest and sleep badly because of their bad furniture is a no no. Do not go there. There are others hotels less expensive and with much more taste and more modern.

We can’t speak highly enough about this hotel. The staff were unbelievable in terms of the level of service and care that went into our experience. The breakfast and the lounge with alcohol and nibbles were the two major highlights. I would stay here again without hesitation. 👍

The Wellington Hotel in Madrid is a must for the location, the service and the overall experience. It is not the ultimate hotel since it hasn't be properly renovated for a while and the new "kids on the block" make it hard to maintain the position. Nevertheless the value for money is the best.

The hotel is located close to the Retiro Park. A lot of restaurants and shopping opportunities are next to the hotel. The hotel has a nice flair with some excellent restaurants and a beautiful spa and gym area. The rooms equipment could be better for example with a coffee machine inside. The standard rooms are old fashioned and very small actually not enough place to use by two persons. The breakfast wasn’t perfect. We had a long waiting time for a la carte orders and the buffet was almost empty when we came two out of three days. In conclusion we would recommend the hotel cause we are believing that these small issues could be solved easily in future. We can also recommend the massage offers at spa. Best experience we had. Special thanks to Irene

I expected a special experience but was quickly met by poor service & over priced facilities. My room rate did not include the use of the gym & pool! The lounge area staff were impersonal & hugely overpriced. The reception staff were inefficient & very unfriendly. I did not feel welcome or valued at all. The bedding was too starched & the pillows were incredibly uncomfortable. I was terribly disappointed.

Dear Jacqueline, Thank you for taking the time to share your valuable feedback. It has come to my attention that the service you received during your recent stay at the recepcion and the lounge area did not meet your expectations. For this, I sincerely apologize, and please consider this situation something completely unusual in our property and we would appreciate if you give us the opportunity to demostrate the well-known of the Wellington Hotel. Regarding the access to the gym, it is open and free to all the hotel guests, not the spa facilities, which are available only under reservation. Please one more time accept our apologies and thank you for your time and your feedblack.
