Discover Madrid


Discover all that this fascinating capital has to offer, Madrid has a multitude of places to discover and moments to experience.


Unique works

“The Art Triangle brings together some of the world’s most important works of art.
More than a kilometre away you will find the Prado, the Thyssen Bornemisza Museum, the Reina Sofia Centre and Caixa Forum.
Just 5 minutes from the hotel you will find a real gem for art lovers, the Sorolla Museum, which was the painter’s private residence from 1910. Joaquín Sorolla, born in Valencia, is considered the greatest representative of Spanish Impressionism and a master of light who knew how to convey the Mediterranean scene like no one else.


A symbol

In this square there are several points of interest such as the statue of the Bear and the arbutus (symbol of Madrid), the famous Tío Pepe advertising poster and the equestrian statue of Carlos III, located right in the centre.


A place to visit

Close to Puerta del Sol, down Calle Mayor, you’ll come to Plaza Mayor, our favourite and another of the most beautiful places to visit in Madrid. This beautiful rectangular square, 129 metres long and 94 metres wide, is surrounded by important buildings such as the Casa de la Panadería and other jewels such as the Arco de Cuchilleros and the Statue of Felipe III, a gift from the Duke of Florence.
If your visit to Madrid is at Christmas time, don’t miss the Christmas market that is located in this square.



The Santiago Bernabéu Stadium is located in the heart of Paseo de la Castellana.
With around one million visitors a year, the stadium and its museum tour are one of the city’s main attractions.



A historic park

Another of the best things to do in Madrid is to take a pleasant stroll through the famous Retiro Park, disconnecting from the noise and stress of the city.
In this historic park you will find everything from a huge artificial pond, which has the Monument to Alfonso XII on one side and where you can rent a boat for a stroll, to the beautiful Palacio de Cristal, which will make you fall in love at first sight.


A must-see

Just opposite the Almudena Cathedral, in the Plaza de la Armería, is the entrance to the Royal Palace, the official residence of the kings of Spain until they moved to the Zarzuela Palace, and another of the most interesting places to see in Madrid.
This enormous palace, the largest in Western Europe, is currently used for sightseeing and is closed for state ceremonies and official acts. Before or after entering the complex, we recommend you go to the Plaza de Oriente and, above all, to the Sabatini Gardens to take good photos of the palace.


Unique monument

A few metres from the Plaza de Cibeles, up Calle Alcalá, you will come to the Puerta de Alcalá, the most famous of the five ancient royal gates that gave access to the city and another of the most beautiful places to visit in Madrid.


Good gastronomy

Located in the heart of the city centre, the Mercado de San Miguel is a meeting point for lovers of good food and one of the most emblematic markets to see in Madrid.
This covered market is characterised by its fantastic iron architecture and its more than 30 stalls that allow you to try many of Spain’s typical products and dishes, such as Iberian ham, Galician seafood and Manchego cheeses, all of the highest quality.
Although you can go for lunch at midday, the most common time to go for tapas is in the evening, when the atmosphere is more lively.
