Connection

by nino224

I have a return flight on AA: Santiago de Compostela/Madrid/Miami the first week in December, but for some reason the conection isn't until the next day. If I do end up having to spend a night in Madrid, I suppose the best thing to do would be to take a guided tour of the city. Can anyone suggest one plus an affordable hotel near the airport?

Gracias!

Re: Connection

by Belsaita

I would better stay in the city centre (unless your next day flight has an awfully early departure) so you can enjoy the city at night (Madrid sleeps late!) and have a nice dinner. Near the airport there is nothing of interest. If you leave most of your luggage at the airport and take only what you need for the night, you can reach the city centre by metro for just two euros (and see one of the best metro systems in the world as the Major likes to say.... and he's right). Besides, soon a bus connecting directly the airport with the very city centre will be operating.

A tour is "the best thing to do" only if you like to be guided. For me the best thing to do in Madrid is walking, discovering nice corners, sitting in cafes and people watching.... The city centre is compact and very safe (just use your street sense and don't make an easy life to pickpockets). Another option for an overview are the HOHO buses.

In any case, it will be useful to know your arrival/departure times, for better planning suggestions.

The reason that the connection isn't until the next day is that AA only has one direct flight from Madrid to Miami, and it arrives early in the a.m. and then turns around and leaves at 11:10 a.m. So if you can't get your flight from Santiago de Compostela to arrive before about 9 am, you have to stay over until the next day. All the other AA flights are code-shares with Iberia. (I know this because my daughter is a pilot on AA and she does this trip sometimes.)

With a similar trip (only my flight was from Venice to Madrid) I was thinking that I could spend the night in Madrid and take the subway in to the city and do the HOHO bus, but I was too tired after the previous part trip and so basically we just vegged out in the hotel. When I was younger it would not have been a problem - but just in case, have a plan B

Hi Nino, there are a few hotels near Madrid Barajas Airport at the town of Barajas itself, here´s one: Hotel NH Barajas, a conveniently situated modern businesshotel with all the necessary services. Should not be too expensive, I have always found prices starting somewhere below 50 euros/night. Hotel is very near to the airport itself.

Re: Connection

by nino224

Hi everybody,

My flight from Santiago arrives at 3pm. I'd like to get a hotel where I can drop off my 1 bag and then head into Madrid via public transpo then come back to sleep.

Re: Connection

by nino224

I like your idea about walking around, but with such limited time I want to pack in as much as possible so a tour would be best.

Staing in the city center sound s good as long as I can get cheap transpo to and from the airport.

Travel Tips for Madrid

Madrid - General history

by Kuznetsov_Sergey

It is considered that Romans arranged the first settlement on a place of present Madrid in the II-nd century before Christmas. They built a fortress on the left bank of Mansares.

In IX and X centuries emir Mohammed I constructed the fortress of Majerit near to the Roman strengthenings to control grounds over Toledo.

Puerta de Alcala

by Birsen

This ceremonial gateaway is the grandest of the monuments erected by Carlos III in his attempt to improve the looks of eastern Madrid. It was designed by Francesco Sabatini to replace a smaller Baroque gateaway that had been built by Felipe III for the entry into Madrid of his wife, Margaret of Austria.
Construction of the gate began in 1769 and lasted nine years. It was built from granite in Neo-Classical style, with a lofty pediment and sculpted angels. It has five arches-three central and two outer rectangular ones.Until the mid-19th century the gateaway marked the city's easternmost boundary. It now stands in the busy Plaza de la Independencia, and is best seen when floodlit at night.We went to Parque del Retiro. The picture taken right next to the park.

Flamenco

by ger4444

Flamenco comes from Andalusia. its a part of the gypsy culture. The best groups, however, are to be found in Madrid. Allthough flamenco is a performance, the most pure form of it is done by a singer and guitar player. Flamenco is performed in the evenings and goes on till deep in the night. Casa Patas is the best place to see flamenco.

The infamous "Cuatro Torres"

by Jefie

A few years ago, a new business center was created in Madrid with the construction of four humongous towers north of the Puerta de Europa, along the Paseo de la Castellana. At 223 m, 236 m, 250 m and 249 m, respectively, the Espacio, Cristal, Repsol and Sacyr Vallehermoso towers stick out like a sore thumb no matter how you look at them... or perhaps not quite?! After having stated very clearly and emphatically how much he hated them, Santi (aka Redang) took us near the towers so we could have a closer look at them and what do you know? After having seen them from up close, he was the first one to admit that they were in fact somewhat elegant!!

Clubs Resume

by fersegundo about Several

I would like to contribute with a extensive resume of nightclubs ordered by area and then by closing time (up to 4am, 6am or later):

General tips
--------------------
- For concerts, visit: http://www.lanocheenvivo.com/actuacion_results.php
- Always leave your coat in the wardrobe, normally 1 euro.
- Madrid is well known for the "garrafon", bad alcohol that will make you have hangover the next day. This is one of the reasons botellon is so popular. I recommend a quick bottellon, and less drinking in the pubs (or beer, which is always safe)
- Standard closing time is 3am. Then you will need a club till 6am. It is best practice to leave the pub at 2.45am and head to the club a bit before the rest, if you want to safe the queues. This applies too if you plan to get a taxi back home.
- Most night buses leave from "Cibeles". So if you don't want to get a taxi and its before 6am (metro opening), walk yourself up to cibeles. There are also "BuhoMetro" night buses that simulates metro lines, look for the signs L1,L2,L3,etc in bus stops near any metro station.
- afterhours are bad news in madrid. The only exception I know is "Space of sound" but is quite far away (metro chamartin)

----------------------------------
-- "Huertas" (metro sol)
----------------------------------

+++up to 4am
Highest concentration of pubs and clubs in the city.
- You can start in a terrace in calle cadiz (from calle carretas, first left).
- "El negro" this bar hasn't got the name written, but it is called like that because the door is black. This is the only bar/club in madrid I know that doesn't have "bad alcohol". Chill out, cheap place, ideal to have the first drinks. Rock music. You can find old people with long beards here.
- Boca del Lobo (calle echergaray) - concerts (paying maybe 8euros) and dancing place afterwards. Funk, soul. Two floors but medium-sized.
- Cardamomo (calle echergaray)- some gypsies and non-gypsies dance true flamenco and some salsa here. If you know some flamenco and want to move a bit, this is THE place.
- For a bit of salsa dancing - El Son (calle Fernando VI, 21) or La Negra Tomasa (C/ Espoz y Mina)
- Bourbon cafe (carrera de san geronimo) - some jazz jam sessions. its a relatively big place but somehow it feels kind of empty

+++ 6am
- La comedia (calle del pincipe) 10 euros? Hip-hop, funky. people dance. maybe too many people for its size.
- Sweet (calle del doctor cortezo, off tirso de molina square) paying. commercial and house music. young people. quite big. not difficult to flirt.
- BlackJack (calle del principe) 8-10 euro. Big place, two floors. Commercial spanish and international music. Locals tend to not like this place. Kind of the "there is nothing else place".
- Palacio de gaviria (calle arenal). Well known among turists and locals, specially on thursdays. Paying. Quite big. 4 different dancing areas with different music (commertial, techno, salsa and commertial-funk). Not difficult to flirt. No sneakers. Locals tend to not like this place.
- Joy eslava (calle del arenal) posh, expensive, elitist disco. Never been there.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
-- Malasaña (metro tribunal) (student, punkest, relatively cheap area, relaxed music)
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
++up to 4am (most of them)
- Via Lactea (calle velarde). One of the best known places, very very popular. indie, rock music. some places to sit (if you are lucky). no dancing.
- ***er (calle san vicente ferrer). Small place. really good blacksploitation, funky music.
- Cafe la palma (calle la palma) very well known place. concerts in the early hours. sitting down. chatting.

++up to 6am
- Sirocco (calle san dimas, a bit further away, off calle la palma). Concerts in the early hours. Electronic quality music. Quite small but good atmosfere.
- El barco (calle el barco, off from san idelfonso square). Paying. House and funk music. People dance a lot here. Maybe too hot and packed. One of the best for flirting for this area
- Tabu (calle san vicente ferrer, i think). Entrance fee. originally decorated, the place is big but has a small dancing area. Trendy people. House, tribal, drummy music. Sometimes late at night "spontaeous" and quick music performances.
- Pacha (calle barcelo). Very well known posh disco. House and techno. dressing code.
- But (calle barcelo) next to Pacha. 12 euros. Huge place, well decorated. As many other clubs, it changes its name and music depending on day (Love, Spandau, Super, ...) Normally hardcore-house. Go-go's and performances. A place for "cool" people.

+++afterhours
- Leidy Pepa (Calle de San Lorenzo 5). Restaurant and chill out from 5am. Speciality: spaguetti. A piano and maybe a guitar player. Knock on the door to enter.

---------------------
-- Alonso Martinez
--------------------
++up to 4am
- Areia (calle hortaleza). Chill out posh and expensive place with some laying down couches. Cocktails and eating. Nice.
- Honky tonk (Calle Covarrubias, 24). Tiny and packed bar with groovy and black-funk music. dancing.
- San mateo (calle san mateo). well known standard spanish pub. commercial spanish music.

++up to 6am
- EL JUNKO (PLAZA DE SANTA BARBARA WITH CALLE DE SANTA TERESA). THIS IS MY PREFERED CLUB. 10 EURO. JAZZ CONCERTS EVERYDAY, THEN AMAZING FUNK. EASY TO FLIRT, WITH A NICE PERCENTAGE OF MEN/WOMEN RATIO. EXPENSIVE. BAD ALCOHOL. LOTS OF DANCING IN A RELAXED AND FRIENDLY ATMOSFERE.

---------------------------
-- Avenida de Brasil (metro Santiago Bernabeu)
------------------------------------------------------------
+++ up to 6am
-----------------------
- LOLITA (CALLE MANUEL DE FALLA 3, FROM SANTIAGO BERNABEU, GO NORTH ON THE RIGHT SIDE OF CASTELLANA (LEAVING THE STADIUM ON YOUR RIGHT), SECOND STREET ON YOUR RIGHT). I REALLY RECOMMEND THIS PLACE. TWO FLOORS WITH DIFFERENT MUSIC (80'S DANCE AND LOUNGE). POSH PEOPLE, BUT RELAXED AND NO DRESS CODE. FREE ENTRANCE!!. EASY FLIRTING IF YOU DANCE. NICE DECOR. CLOSING TIME IS UNPREDICTABLE (FROM 4.30AM TO 6 AM).
- Moby Dick (avenida de brasil, ask anyone). Concerts in the early hours. Then pop-electronic music or maybe funk, very danceable. Expensive. Free entrance!.
- Irish Rover (avenida de brasil, next to MobyDick). Big irish pub, with terrace on summer. Concerts. free entrance.
- La Nuit (orense 10) It is imposible not to be given a flier of this club if you wonder around the area, this fact still puzzles me. Meat market. Open everyday, and always packed. Easy girls. Music: sorry, i cant remember.
- Several clubs in the "bajos de orense". Down some stairs that are just at santiago bernabeu, you access a bunch of clubs. No sneakers. No group of guys only. Easy to flirt. Commercial music with some reggaeton, commercial salsa, etc.
- A bit further up, you have calle Alberto Alcocer. You have two good clubs here: Moe's and 69 Petalos. Moes is a two-floor dancing-funky place, free entrance, and concerts. 69 Petalos is a posh trendy club with performances, you have to pay 12euros and wait a huge queue. Danceable 80's and electronic music. I hate it when the owner speaks constantly on the microphone. Nice decor.

---------------
-- Gran Via
--------------
This is the heart of the club-scene. You will have to pay on all of them.

+++up to 4am
- "El perro de la parte de atras del coche" (calle de la puebla 13, perpendicular to calle del barco) Funny name and fun place. Soul-funky music. Quite nice. Closes at 4.30

+++up to 6am
- SALA SOL (CALLE DE LOS JARDINES, OFF MONTERA) PROBABLY THE MOST WELL KNOW PLACE IN THE AREA. IF YOU HAD ONLY ONE NIGHT IN MADRID I WOULD END UP HERE. BEWARE!, HUGE QUEUES AFTER 3AM. MUSIC: DEPENDS A BIT ON THE NIGHT, MAYBE ELECTRO-POP, MAYBE GROOVY-FUNK, ALWAYS GOOD. EMPTY BEFORE 2AM. PACKED AFTER 3AM.
- Ohm (plaza de callao). Saturdays is very gay. Fridays is gay-friendly. I really recommend this place but only if you enjoy dancing house. Friendly atmosphere and lots of fun.
- Flamingo (Calle Mesonero Romanos, 13). Indie / electro-Pop / Rock. Gothic night on saturdays.
- low (Plaza de los Mostenses 11, metro plaza de españa). huge club. huge queues. expensive. dj's. electro hardcore.
- Yasta (calle valverde). If you like trance.
- Others: cool, the room, the moon (this one closes at 8): house, djs, trendy

-----------------
-- La latina
-----------------
Considered more as an early hours (evenings and up to 3am) area, with beautiful alleys and churches and lots of outdoors terraces when the weather permits. But has lots of really nice bars and clubs too, only that scattered all over the area.

+++ up to 4am
- Marula. (calle bailen 27, down a steppy road just on one extreme of the aqueduct and then down some stairs). 10euros. Quite small and packed. Funk. 50% girls. Easy to flirt.
- Contra club (calle bailen, on the same extreme of the aqueduct, but on top of it). More funk. 10euros.
- Barbu (calle santiago 3, closer to metro opera and sol, perpendicular to calle mayor). Big place with two floors and different music. Electronic-dance and rock.
- kathmandu (Señores de Luzón 3, perpendicular to calle mayor). reggae, jungle, hip-hop, jazzy funk. 10euros. Quite packed. I don't like it because the dance floor is quite small.

Don't have more time to review this areas:
Salamanca: The posh area of madrid.
Moncloa: Students and younger people hang out here.
Chueca: Gay realm.

Have fun!
