Hotel Ritz

OVERVIEW

Insider Tip

Celebrity spotting is a favorite activity at the Ritz but guests will never glean information from the staff. When American movie star Richard Gere stayed here, staff resisted pressure from press and curious guests. Discretion always prevails.

Much of the furniture dates back to the 1910 opening, including the ample fitted wardrobes, which reflect an age when vacationers did not travel light.

Dining

Goya Restaurant
Informally-dressed guests will be handed a jacket by staff to fit in with the regal atmosphere of this 570-metre high restaurant overlooking the Stock Exchange, with tear drop chandeliers, large draped windows, silver patterned fabric walls, and silver service. Although international cuisine does feature, Spanish specialties are always on the lunch and dinner à la carte menu. Cocido Madrileno (chickpeas, chicken, vegetable, beef and pork stew) is served every Tuesday and Thursday. Although the menu changes daily, Paella is always available on request.
Velazquez Bar
Cocktails and snacks are served in a relaxed atmosphere in this intimate, wood-paneled bar.
Lobby
Snacks and drinks are served all day but afternoon tea and scones with homemade jam and clotted cream accompanied by live piano music at the Ritz is, for some, as important as a trip to the Prado Museum. The setting is a huge room with two crimson handmade carpets, scattered with sofas and armchairs in maroon, caramel, blue, and green. A white marble statue is set in a scarlet alcove. Large plants attempt to reach the gilded high ceiling but don't quite make it.
Ritz Garden
In spring and summer, snacks, drinks, and à la carte dining from the adjacent Goya restaurant kitchens is served on the terrace garden, with sculptures, pond, and shade to protect from the heat of the sun. Afternoon tea moves from the Lobby to this prime spot, along with live piano music. There is space for 400 people.

Recreation

The recreational activities listed below are available either on site or near the hotel; fees may apply.
