Madrid Luxury Hotels
Luxury 5 star hotels in Madrid tend to be located in more upmarket areas outside the city's tourist center, although a few are found in the center of town.
The efficient public transport system in Madrid makes getting around to any place in the city quick and easy, making the location of a luxury hotel less important. Luxury hotels in Madrid tend to be some of the most expensive in the world, with prices starting at a couple of hundred euros a night going up to several thousand depending on the location, the size of the room, and other factors.
There are quite a number of 5 star hotels in Madrid to choose from. Some are well known names from other similar major cities, others are not as well known, but remain the accommodation of choice for many visitors. The 5 star luxury hotels may have reduced weekend discount rates, so if you are planning a weekend trip it is worthwhile to ask for any weekend discount before you book.
Remember that most hotels official published rate is the "rack rate", and in many cases you can get lower rates than those officially quoted. Check directly with your hotel of choice by internet, or by calling the individual hotels reservation desk. High seasons are Easter and Christmas, so avoid those periods if you can.
If you decide to go to Madrid during the very hot months of July and August, the capital's low season, you'll usually be able to pick up some very good bargains in the higher priced hotels.
Some of the 4 star hotels in Madrid may be almost as good as a 5 star hotel, but cheaper. So it may be worth the effort also to include 4 star hotels in your travel planning.
