Oyster Review Summary

Photos and Review by Oyster.com Investigators

Pros

  • Convenient location near Retiro Park, within walking distance of numerous sights
  • Stylish decor throughout
  • Rooms have flat-screen TVs, iPod docks, laptops, and free Wi-Fi
  • Restaurant and bar that serves an extensive breakfast buffet
  • Bicycle and stroller rentals
  • On-site fitness center

Cons

  • Double Rooms feature two beds pushed together (typical in Madrid)

Bottom Line

The Savoy, part of the high-tech Petit Palace chain, is a great value option in Madrid. The perks: a convenient location by Retiro Park, stylish decor (including hip mood lighting in the lobby and hallways), a fitness center, a restaurant with an extensive breakfast buffet, and rooms equipped with free Wi-Fi, laptops, and flat-screen TVs. Plus, unlike at some Petit Palace hotels, the rooms are chic; picture a black-and-white color scheme accented by patterns, modern furniture, and pops of color. Family Rooms with bunk beds are available, as are bicycle and stroller rentals. Sure, the Double Rooms feature two beds pushed together, but that is typical at many hotels in the city.

Oyster Hotel Review

 Location

In a beautiful spot right by Retiro Park

The Petit Palace Savoy is located right by beautiful Retiro Park, the city's most famous park. There are plenty of cafes, restaurants, and shops in the surrounding area of Huertas, which is considered by many to have the best nightlife and culinary scene in the city. The hotel is also close to Puerta de Atocha train station, which serves the high speed trains.

The capital of Spain is a vibrant, multicultural city located right in the center of the country. The Cuatro Torres business area's additions to the city skyline (four sleek towers, including a hotel and corporate offices) give an idea of what Madrid is rapidly becoming: a sophisticated, cosmopolitan city -- albeit one that preserves its century-old traditions.

  • 16-minute drive to Madrid-Barajas Airport
  • On Retiro Park, Madrid's most famous garden
  • 6-minute walk to El Prado Museum
  • 9-minute walk to Atocha train station
  • 10-minute walk to Thyssen-Bornemisza Museum
  • 12-minute walk to Reina Sofia Museum
  • 19-minute walk to Puerta del Sol and Plaza Mayor
  • 23-minute walk to shopping on Gran Via
  • 25-minute subway ride to Plaza de Oriente, home to the Royal Palace, the Royal Theater, and Sabatini Gardens
  • 29-minute bus ride to Templo de Debod Park, with great views and an original Egyptian temple
  • 36-minute bus ride to Plaza de Castilla, the financial district
