The Petit Palace Art Gallery is a boutique hotel situated on calle Jorge Juan, between calle Serrano and calle Velázquez, in the exclusive area of antique shops and galleries near the National Library, El Retiro Park and the Archaeological Museum. The hotel occupies a fully remodelled landmark building erected in the early nineteenth century, with an exclusive outdoor coffee garden.
The area is the best in Madrid. The breakfast was fantastic and most of the staff were friendly. Receptionist suggested a restaurant chain which was weird as lots of options in neighbourhood, the room although comfortable was hot and air con didn't make any difference.
"Comfortable accommodation in a smart neighbourhood, with helpful staff and great breakfast - what more could you want'!"
My sister and I stayed 4 nights at this great hotel. It's in a vey upscale neighbourhood with lovely shops, bars and restaurants all close by. You will love the window shopping! It's still very handy for all the sights and close to the Retiro park. The room was smallish but perfectly comfortable. Two single beds pushed together. We were on the second floor looking out onto the side street, with a floor to ceiling window and a narrow balcony you could stand out on. The bathroom takes up a quarter of the room, and is frosted glass rather than solid walls (see pics); the door didn't quite close neatly either so if you're at all fussy about your privacy, it's maybe not perfect! The hairdryer was also in the bathroom and couldn't be moved so one person can't use it while the other is in the shower. But these really are minor issues. The buffet breakfast was plentiful, tasty and good quality. It's served in the basement of the restaurant under the hotel (called Quintin). The staff are absolutely lovely - a big shout out to Joana especially who was super helpful. Furnishings are tasteful, room is clean and location can't be beaten. I would def stay here again - with husband next time!
What a little gem, great staff and service, huge rooms , quaint lift and a breakfast room to die for , tucked in the basement , you would have to go a long way to make it more appealing, it was enchanting ... and the breakfast was to die for , congratulations oh and great area and good value
Close to Retiro Park and lots of high end shopping and extensive restaurants and tapa bars. Hotel is hip and fun but has an original working cage elevator. Good bed and we had 3 balconies in our room,308. Walking distance to most everything; Prado, Puerto del Sol, Plaza Mayor etc.
"Great stay, great location and fantastic staff!"
We had a great stay at this hotel. Its location is perfect, the room was a bit small but very clean and enough for us and had a good sized bathroom. Breakfast is also very good, with plenty of fresh and tasty products. But the best of this hotel is its friendly staff! They were all very helpful and nice - our baby daughter loved them and had lots of fun there! Special thanks to Esther, who was very attentive to details during our stay.
