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.

  • Free entry (including public toilets!) and an interesting insight into Madrid right through time. Interesting gap between about 1935 and the 1950s... Which is a shame as it's an era I do take an interest in. Great exhibits on the early civil war and Spanish industrialisation though.
  • Free entry with nice staff. Good for a small break from outside. Not many people
  • If you want ti see how the city grew, come here and you'll learn all about it. It has been recently refurbished and looks nice
  • It's such a great place to know a little more about Spanish history. People that works there are very nice.
  • Free admission with interesting maps. Take a look the 16th century map on the ground floor. You can see that the map has not changed until nowadays
