Where to stay in Madrid

The Spanish capital is known for its array of distinct neighborhoods each with its own appeal. An affordable and easy-to-navigate metro system, which makes it is easy to get around Madrid gives you more flexibility in choosing where to stay. Perhaps the most popular choice is Puerta del Sol, the heart of the city center and one of the main tourist attractions with its numerous shops, affordable hotels, and restaurants. Close by is Gran Via street, one of the city's main arteries, which is also home to a number of hotels. A short walk from here is Plaza España where the city's most iconic landmarks lie, including the Royal Palace and the Teatro Royal. For somthing outside the traditional tourist areas, consider staying in La Latina or Malasaña, two bohemian neighborhoods that offer a wide range of eclectic shops, quaint cafes, and lively bars.

  • Small museum with small cultural collections from around the world. There are far better museums in Madrid to visit - and this is coming from an anthropologist. However, they also have a rotating exhibit and recently it was photographs from Asturias during the Spanish Civil War, which were very interesting. Also look up the story of Doctor Velasco (the museum is housed in his former mansion) and his daughter that he mummified and then dug up again. Most interesting part of the building but there is no mention of it in the museum itself!
  • A small museum with small collections of objects from cultures around the world. There are many better museums in Madrid to visit, though this one does offer free admission if you purchase an annual pass (which includes unlimited priority admission to the Prado and Reina Sofia). Plan forty-five minutes to an hour.
  • Interesting museum specially covering former Spanish colonies in Asia, Africa and America.
  • well done
  • Amazing architecture!
