  • Stylish decor throughout
  • Rooms have flat-screen TVs, iPod docks, laptops, and free Wi-Fi

  • Bicycle and stroller rentals

Cons

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.

Location

In a beautiful spot right by Retiro Park

Map of Petit Palace Savoy Alfonso XII

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.
