Do you have an exact adress? Fropm the name they may be located at calle Recoletos which is a nice centrally located street, but before going on pls confirm if this is the right adress?

Re: apartamentos

by MarcG

Hey...found on the web the apartments you're looking for. They are on Calle Villanueva 2 just on the corner of Paseo de Recoletos acroos the street from the National Library. Excellent location, very safe. Walking distance to Prado Museum Reina sofia, Thyssen Museums, Puerta del Sol etc.

Hi Sugar_Ray,
How long are you going to be in Madrid for? When will you be arriving?
If you will be around at Xmas time, please check my home page, Madrid page, Madrid Forum, i.e. I have organised a MEGA VT MEETING for the holidays in MADRID.
Feel free to contact me if you have any comments or questions.
Hope you can come,
Hasta pronto,
p.s. even if you are not around at that time, contact me when you arrive in Madrid and I will get some of my friends together and we can go for tapas and copas.

if these apartments are on Villanueva , they are in one of the nicer areas in madrid (one of the most expensive too). besides french embassy is very close, so its also very safe, even at night

Travel Tips for Madrid

Visit the Retiro Park.

by margobubs

Visit the Retiro Park.
This was the highlight of out holiday.
Nearly every morning we would walk through the park to buy our daily newspaper. this we read sitting in the sun, by the lake, and listening to a tallented guitarist playing nearby. Then we would stroll to one of the little cafes in the park for a drink of iced cola and eat a tapas (Ahhh what memories)
It really is a wonderful park. Very big with plenty going on e.g. Musicians, and street artists to name but a few. It has to be the Retiro Park
The photo shows some people in the park dancing to some of the musicians

Being the seat of the Spanish...

by DanielF

Being the seat of the Spanish monarchy since the XVI century, there are a lot of royal palaces in Madrid and its surroundings. Apart from the Royal palace itself you can visit:
-The Palacio de Aranjuez (see picture): by the river Tajo, South of Madrid, this is a lovely palace with wonderful gardens. It was built by the Bourbons as a summer residence following the French style.
- The Palacio de la Granja: another summer residence in the Sierra north to Madrid (province of Segovia). The fountains in the well kept park are really nice, but they only work on certain days of the year. Near it, you should also visit the Palace of Riofrío, which was used as a hunting pavillion by the Monarchy.
- Palacio del Pardo, in the outskirts of Madrid. It is currently used as official residence for Heads of State visiting the city. However, it can be visited if there are not guests.
- El Escorial: not only a palace, but also a monastery. The seat of Government of Philip II and a must for every Madrid visitor.

Walk along the river (yes, Madrid has a river!)

by chetverona

The River Manzanares runs along Madrid. I wouldn't think that any tourist ever checks it out, as it is rather unimpressive, narrow and it's not in the center of the city. However, I recommend a walk along it just before dusk. The scenery is pretty and you can see the cathedral of Madrid in the distance, maybe even just as it is being lighted too. The neighborhood is very local lower-middle class. To get here get off the subway at "Principe Pio" station and walk along Paseo de la Florida until you can turn left, and there's the river. (Photo coming up)

Calle de Ortega y Gasset (Ortega y Gasset Street)

by Redang

This street goes from Paseo de La Castellana to Calle de Francisco Silvela, however, the most important shops are between Calle de Serrano and Calle del Príncipe de Vergara, where you can buy from fashion to jewelry or even wine from almost all over the world.

Note: Sometimes some people call this street (myself included), calle de Lista (the former name).


by Lorro about Trendy areas

Lavapies is a neighborhood just south of Sol centering around the metro stop Lavapies. I am not recommending this area to just anyone though because it is not the place to go if you look like you are carrying a lot of money. The area is working class and home to many new immigrants which means you wont find fancy establishments that apeal to people who want to see and be seen.

BUT, if you are looking for cheap morrocan, arabic and indian food and grocery stores, boehemian bars and tea houses and something a little different OFF the tourist track and within walking distance, this is the place for you. I always go to this area to get great pita bread, tahine paste and other spices. Cafe Barbieri which is similar to Cafe Manuela is in this area, near the Metro Stop of Lavapies.(See picture) Great specialty coffees, hot chocolate and coctails. This cafe feels like you are stepping back in time to a bar that was already getting old in the 20s. With original mirrors on the walls and creaking floors included. Just up Calle Ave Maria from the Metro Lavapies.
Along the street Argumosa which runs to Atocha are several bars popular with expats such as "Automatico" and a great bar de "Tostas" which are like big canapes, toasted bread with tasty and tasteful toppings, and good wine. Farther down is an English language book shop "La libreria de Lavapies." If you go to the end of Argumosa you arrive at the new wing of the Reina Sofia Museum near Atocha.
Morrocan food and gift shops, complete with tea pots and glasses, trinkets and other imported-direct-from-Morrocco things are on Calle Tribulete. Casual, sans the diamond jewelry.
