Babysitter Agency in Madrid

by nycgirl88

Can anyone recommend a reputable agency for a babysitter?
My husband and I will be in Madrid with our infant son for about a week and would like a sitter for one day while we catch a Real Madrid game.
I know some hotels offer this service, but we will be staying in an apartment.
Thank you

I know for two web pages for babysitters but I don't know how well you can trust the babysitters there. Some do have god references...

Anyway, if it helps (the pages are in Spanish), here are the links:

Travel Tips for Madrid

You definetly must see Museum...

by Linndy

You definetly must see Museum del Prado, try the Paella and get a lot of Spanish friends... :)) Music, sun and spanish men who are paying attention all the time... (especially if you are a blonde... :)) )

Go Shopping At PUERTA DEL SOL

by Krystynn

Ladies - the best places to shop in Madrid are along:

- Puerta del Sol
- Gran Via and,
- Salamanca (for luxury products).

Over at Pueta del Sol, you can shop to your heart's content at Spain's largest department store - El Corte Inglés (my favorite shopping haunt). If you come to Madrid during their major sales period (e.g. in October), you'll be in for a big treat!

Gran Via is more touristy. I couldn't find what I was looking for when I was out at Gran Via.

And, Salamanca is where you'd find the posh boutiques of Chanel, Prada, Loewe et al. Good place to borrow your husband's or boyfriend's credit card to go shopping! ;-) The likelihood of bumping into Victoria Beckham or Penelope Cruz here is very high.

Happy shopping!

Real Madrid Football

by jnyvegas

This was my #1 thing on my to do list while in Madrid. I have never been to a european Footbal(soccer) match. First off we had to get tickets and after the concierge at the Palace Hotel tried to make us pay him 175 euro's each we decided to goto the stadium (took the subway right to it). There were still tickets for sale and the line was about 100ft long so we decided to buy them from a scalper. We paid 60 Euro's for face value 45 euro tickets and did not have to wait inline. The tickets were on the third tier out of 5 tiers and were good seats. There are no vendors walking up and down the aisle at the stadium so bring in some food and snacks.

Arquitectura en Metro/Architecture by Metro: L5

by Redang

There are dozens of emblematic buildings and monuments in Madrid, famous and less famous. I bring here the possibilty of seeing some of them linked to each other by metro.

* Metro: Núñez de Balboa (also line 9)
Name: Colegio de Ntra. Sra. de Loreto
Address: Calle Príncipe de Vergara, 42
Architect: Juan Bautista Lázaro
Year: 1.889-1.898

Name: Colegio de Ntra. Sra. del Pilar
Address: Calle Castelló, 56 (it’s the official, although it’s in front of N.S. de Loreto)
Architect: Manuel Aníbal Alvarez and Luis Moya
Year: 1.908-1.916 and 1.959-1.960

Name: Embajada de Italia (Embassy of Italy)

* Metro: Puerta de Toledo

Important notices:
1. Some buildings or monuments are very close to the metro station and easy to be found whilst some others are a bit far and it's not so easy to get to them, you only have to look for the correct street or square.

2. The link shows the list of the stations of the different metro lines.

3. As I said before, there are many buildings/monuments, but I only bring here a few of them.

Tapas in the cuevas (caves)

by laura4n8 about Cuevas off the Plaza Mayor

We wanted to go to a quaint place to eat some tapas and enjoy some music. Fortunately we meet an American girl who had lived in Madrid for a few years and was back for a visit. She showed us a quiet little spot just off the Plaza Mayor. The tapa bars were in caves (called "cuevas") under the buildings. We walked in a random one (because I liked the door) and found ourselves to be nearly the only patrons. Soon a table of Spaniards walked in and a musician. My friend told the musician that I loved to dance and he solicited some of the few men in the place to give me a whirl. An older man pulled me to the floor and soon my table of four girls were dancing on the floor with the local patrons. What an experience! Later, our server told me that we were the first tourists he had seen in years. Interesting!
