The bedrooms at the Ritz are of course sumptuous, spacious (322 sq ft) and stylishly decorated with a crystal chandelier hanging from the ceiling, pretty paintings, beautiful wallpaper and elegant wooden furniture. The sophisticated decor even extends to the wooden detail over the bed. Cosy slippers are provided for your comfort, but it is also pleasant to walk barefoot on the soothingly thick carpet. Obviously the rooms are the height of comfort and provide all necessary facilities: individual and discrete air-conditioning, telephone, WiFi Internet access (payable and rather expensive), a mini-bar and a large, rather spacious electronic safe deposit box, big enough to hold a laptop. a flat-screen television with a DVD player broadcasts 52 channels. The radio plays relaxing background music. You are sure to sleep like a log in the cosy bed, given the quality of the mattress and the softness of the sheets: you'll never want to get up! Some of the rooms' balconies offer magnificent views of the El Prado museum.
The marble bathroom is spacious, very clean and dazzling, with gilded taps. It has a large bathtub with a gilded handle to match the taps, a separate tropical shower (with one tap for hot water and another for cold; it isn't always easy to adjust the temperature, so be careful not to burn yourself!), a magnifying mirror, tissues, a hair-dryer, a double sink, bathrobes, elaborate welcome products from the Bulgari cosmetics range, a set of weighing scales (which is very practical, as the extra kilos soon pile on in Madrid), and a separate toilet with a bidet and a radiator. All enhanced by attention to detail (bouquet of flowers and porcelain holder for your toothbrush).The hotel has many suites, each more beautiful than the last. The Royal Suite is a favourite of Yves Saint-Laurent.
