Alfonso XIII wasn’t only the most pleasant ruler; he was also the most hospitable. The king noticed the need for a hotel in his country’s capital, and proceeded to build one of the world’s most luxurious. Built in 1910, The Ritz has stood the test of timeless luxury – don’t be surprised if you rub elbows with aristocrats upon entering the baroque-inspired structure. Upstairs, the newly renovated rooms still maintain The Ritz’s royal roots, and accommodate children with a library of cartoons, PlayStation, bottle warmers, and bathrobes. In the spring and summer, take the family down to the terrace for sun-drenched tapas.
