Please help me select an apartment in these three areas

by redpoint

OK. We have the tickets for the end of March. There are 3 apartment possibilities. I would love it to have some detailed input about the pros and cons of each.

1. Just north of Gran Via in Chueca, on the Calle de la Reina near the intersection of the Calle de Hortaleza.

2. Puerta del Sol area on Calle de Esparteros near where it intersects with Calle Major and Calle Postas.

3. Just east of Retiro Park on the Calle O'Donnell. I'm worried about how we will all fit into this one, though.

Thanks so much! Any help is so appreciated.

As soon as you get North of Gran Via there is a lot of petty drug dealing and prostitutes. I stay at the TRYP Cibibes on Gran Via and if you go one block N. it is a bit unnerving if you are not used to it. If you are by Calle Major, you are very central to going to the Palace to the West, or the museums to the East. It can be a bit noisy late into the evening. East of Retiro Park means you have quite a walk to get to Madrid central. But the metro is great and you can always get a cab if you are out after 1 AM. You are also close to the Salamanca barrio which has some high end restaurants and great shopping, albeit expensive. My wife and daughters loved the area and did find some shops with good sales. Best, Karl

Travel Tips for Madrid

How to get an easy picture of Madrid!

by El_Sueco

To get a quick and comprehensive image of Madrid there are tourist seight-seeing buses.
You can choose between three diferent routes:
Ruta 1: Madrid historical
Ruta 2: Madrid modern
Ruta 3: Madrid monumental
Each bus will pass 15-20 different spots and you will be given information in English about them.
You can combine 2 or 3 routs and pay less if you make them the same day.
My tip is to make 1 or 2 of the routes in the evening and you will see the buildings enlighted which is very beautiful.
There are some stops when the bus take up and leave passengers and you can leave the bus whenever you like.
Of course those tours are not in any case detailed, but you will get familiar with some of the orientation points in Madrid.

Corrida

by evona

The bullfights are very popular in Spain. You can see the history of corrida in Museo Taurino. There is too The Bulla of the Pope Pius V - a document in wich he forbided the bullsfights - but this prohibition was never kept. The Plaza de Toros in Madrid is a very beautiful building. There are some other plazas de toros in the city. And in every one town there is a Plaza de Toros.
I have never seen the bullsfights live, only in the TV, and I`m sure I don`t like it. But I like the torreros dress, it is so colorfull. Really great.

A trip to Ancient Egypt

by andal13

You can visit an Egyptian temple if you are in Cairo, of course... but in Madrid? The Temple of Debod (4th century BC) is a gift that Egypt gave to Spain. It can be visited and one of the best sights of Madrid can be seen from this place.

Puedes visitar un templo egipcio cuando estás en El Cairo, claro.. ¿pero en Madrid? El Templo de Debod (siglo IV AC) es un presente que Egipto le hizo a España. Puede ser visitado y una de las mejores vistas de Madrid se pueden ver desde este lugar.

ESPANA knows her shoes

by morgane1692 about El Corte Ingles

I wouldn't generally recommend department stores here in the States, but I've had fashion success with them in both Brazil and Spain, go figure. To my amazement, the shoe department at El Corte Ingles rocked. Shoes are critically important. These were the store brand as well, only 59euros. Back in the good ole' days when that still meant $59USD. ;-))) mmmmm, SHOES, clothes, it's all good!

another jazz spot

by mindcrime about BOGUI JAZZ

Although I got bored with BOB SANDS BIG BAND(video) the place seemed nice to me. There are some chairs in the front of the stage where you can see the band but the place aint big anyway. We made a reservation before arrival to be sure though. The entrance fee was about 8 euros and then we payed for the drinks.

The concert started at 23:30 and lasted till 01:30. Bogui jazz club opened in 2005 and has live music every night. Check their site for the program list.
