Where to Stay/What to do...Best Plan to do As Much As Possible???

by angelsweetness

Hello all. I will be traveling to Madrid in the summer. I only get to stay there for 3 nights and want to experience Madrid to the fullest. I was wondering what should be the things to do at the top of my list? Also, where should I book a hotel? I was thinking of a nice hotel at a decent price that is very centrally located to the things I don't want to miss out on. I do want to visit the museums and parks...but other than that, what are the things I shouldn't miss out on to make the most of my experience? Also, any good tapas I must try before leaving? I was looking at the Hotel Opera...it seemed to be nice and centrally located...any thoughts? Please let me know. Thanks.

We have stayed twice at Hotel Europa which is right on the Puerta del Sol and found it lovely, clean, convenient and reasonably priced (http://www.hoteleuropa.net/index.en.html)
I am sure you know about the museums but I recommend not missing the Reina Sofia and Picasso's Guernica among other things. It is not far from the Prado. Also, near the Prado is the wonderful Botanical Garden which I think is worth a visit.

Any place in central Madrid, bordered from the Prado, to the Palace to Cybeles and then back to the Prado is centrally located. As Rex mentioned the Europa (a well run small hotel chain) is right in the middle at Sol, but the area can be very busy. I prefer being up on Gran Via and enjoyed my stays at TYRP Cybeles as well as the Emperador (which has a pool on the top) The big three museums are all close to one another, the Prado, Reina Sophia and the Thyssen Borenmisma. Try to see a Zarzuela (Madrid light opera), the Plaza Major in the evening, the Palace and Temple Diebold during the day. Karl

Hola,

I can thoroughly recommend Hostal Triana http://www.hostaltriana.com, it's clean, warm and very centrally located. It's 55 euros for a double but doesn't provide breakfast which isn't a problem as there are lots of cafes and bars around it.

I should say that you shouldn't miss Casa Mingo, Paseo de la Florida 34, Casa de Campo (metro Principo Pia) prepare to queue for delicious Asturian roast chicken and cidre. I can also recommend Bodega la ra Dosa on Calle Colon for a fabulous busy atmosphere and good quality tapas.

Have fun in a fantastic city.

Travel Tips for Madrid

Museums: Reina Sofia 1.

by ger4444

Situated in a former 18 th. century hospital the Centro de Arte Reina Sofia houses a collection of spanish modern art. the msot important art piece is Picasso's Guernica, but we can find aslo other important artists such as Dali, Ponce de Leon and Dali. The museum rooms are situated around a court. the permanent collection (20 th century) is situated at the 2 th and 4 th floor, the second floor has art from the firts half of the 20 th century and contains specail rooms for artisist like Dali, Miro and Picasso. The fourth floor contains artpieces of post war erea, mainly abstract art such as popart and minimal aert Picasso's Guernica. Its a protest against the civil war. it was exibited for a long time in New York, but got back to spain as democracy was restored.

Angels on the Street

by scottishvisitor

Just loved the street signs - very ornate & much more interesting than "Main Street" The Spanish have a very creative flair when it comes to ceramics, they create very detailed and arty street signs.

Monumento a Don Quijote

by marielexoteria

Don Quijote is one of the most famous characters in Spanish literature, created by Miguel de Cervantes, one of Spain's most important authors. Reading Don Quijote was a must for me (and other Latinamericans I've spoken to) at school so visiting this monument was a given on my Madrid trip :)

Access: nearest metro station: Plaza de España, a few steps from La Gran Vía.

Like Chocolate? Come Here!!

by mollymoo0oo0 about Xocoa

A great gift shop for chocolate lovers - or an excuse to treat yourself to something choccy!! There are some unusual ideas here, such as a chocolate CD for music lovers, chocolate beer, chocolate shower gel and a very yummy looking chocolate liqueur. There are also a range of chocolate bars (such as Jamaican/ginger/diabetic chocolate and lots more). Or why not try selection of individual chocolates from the large cabinet... these include 5 spices, tequila, rum, orange, hazelnut, raspberry... and lots more!! All presented in a lovely box or tin. Single chocolates start from only 0.70€

Café-Bar con buena gente

by mollymoo0oo0 about Pryce

Pryce is a pleasant café. With Cuban proprietorship, it is bright, modern and simple, with a good vibe feeling that all those who pass through the doors are welcome in.

With lighting that mimic natural daylight, the ambience is easily enjoyable by day, night and through all seasons (especially in cold winter months); a welcome contrast to other madrid bars which tend to be very dark indeed or so bright you catch a suntan indoors!

Late evenings show a more relaxed dimming of the lights with candles :)

Food and drink recommendations:

desayuno - breakfast:

café con churros 2,30€
mediterranéo: café y tostada con tomate y aceite de oliva - coffee and tumaca (toast with tomate and olive oil - delicious!)

café/té

a good range of coffees and teas...

zumos - juices

some fantastic freshly made juices, which must be tried!
zumo habanero (de mango y limón) ....mango and lemon 3,50€
zumo sergi (naranja, plátano, piña) ...orange, banana, pineapple
and others, to include frutas de temporado - seasonal fruits

cocteles - cocktails here are worth checking out too!

tostas - open topped toasted sandwiches
...especially salmón 4,00€

*On a budget tip:* one point worth noting, is the small price increase if you choose to eat/drink outside en terraza or arrive at night (after 21h00). As you are :)
