Where to stay

Madrid can be a busy city so make sure to book in advance to avoid disappointment. It is also important to choose a barrio which makes sure you get exactly what you want from the city. Salamanca offers luxury, shopping and history and bears the reputation of being the wealthy barrio of Madrid, while on the other hand, Malasaña is an alternative neighbourhood with hip streets and street art. Visitors can wander amongst fantastic markets, boutiques, restaurants and bars in Chueca, the city’s official gay neighborhood. To discover a more cultural side of Madrid head to Las Letras/Cortes, home to most important museums in Madrid. La Latina is another good choice. As well as being one of the oldest and most traditional barrios, it is the best place to go for tapas.

You’re spoilt for choice in Madrid for things to do. Its pretty squares have lot of history and have been used as locations for bullfighting, festivals and executions. Go to Plaza de Cibeles for beautiful architecture, Puerta del Sol for street entertainers and Plaza Mayor to simply appreciate it. Madrid also has a great deal of beautiful parks such as Retiro Park, which is a great place to retreat away from the hustle and bustle of Madrid.

Amid various historical sites, Madrid has a plethora of great places to eat and drink. This means, of course, that most things revolve around eating and drinking. One of the most popular dining options in the capital are tapas bars, with the best found in the barrios of Huertas, Malasaña and Chueca. It is also possible to stop by the market at Mercado de San Miguel and pick up some tasty olives and bocadillos stuffed with Iberico jamon. Another top tip is Botín. The oldest restaurant in the world, it serves mouthwatering roast lamb and suckling pig. In relation to bars, it is always worthwhile to pause at El Jardín Secreto de Salvador Bachiller, a magical rooftop bar. The La Venencia bar is also worth pulling out your wallet for.
