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.

  • Unfortunately this building is under construction. But still it's a good place to visit! I definitely recommend this.
  • This is a very relaxing place... they play music & you can see the pond... also be brave and go in the little boats for a ride!!!
  • Although part of the monument was in scaffolding we still liked the impressive columns and statues on the waterside. Definitely worth a detour in the parc.
  • From a side or an other the view over the lake is excellent !
  • Expansively gorgeous! Plus, if you like dogs, people bring their lovely furbies in the park to play!
