    Great location

    by

    I was here with a friend for a weekend and we were completely satisfied. First of all, EVERYTHING is within walking distance, we didn't take the metro once except when we arrived and left.
    We had a shower in the room, which was very convenient, but it's very small and the water pressure is extremely low. That's something that might not work for a longer stay.
    The toilet is in the hallway. Staff are reserved but friendly.

    Unique Quality: Really great location as I said above.

    Directions: Between Callao and Gran Vía metro

How to go to La Mancha?

by hoingai

Is there any information to get to La Mancha from Madrid? I can not get any ......

Re: How to go to La Mancha?

by puerto_lover

La Mancha is a large area. You may be thinking of seeing the famous windmills. Some of the best are at a place called Consuegra. But there are others but ideally you need a car or a tour.
Maybe someone else can offer you an idea of how it is possible to reach by public transport but I think it's difficult. No train station near these windmills.
Maybe a bus.

Yes I search a lot but can't find any public transport to reach there, my friend really want to see the wonderful windmills..

Prices don't always include VAT

by marielexoteria

Some restaurants, shops and hotels don't always include the VAT on their prices, so be careful with this. On all 3 restaurants we ate at they had printed "Prices don't include VAT" in a very small font at the end of the pages. When checking prices, our hotel's didn't include VAT either but before confirming the online booking they showed the price with and without this tax.

VAT (IVA in Spanish) is as of now 7% in restaurants and 16% for shops.

The picture is one about philosophy and represents the Socrates, Plato discussin what they had for lunch. There are also paintings of grammar, mathmatics, etc.

El Corte Ingles

by pupina about Department Stores

You will find El Corte Ingles stores everywhere you look around in Spain. This is a large department store which sells just about everything from groceries to high end electronics. The prices are a bit steep but during sales and when there's some special offers, you can really get a great bargain.
