The capital of Spain is brimming with history and culture, the perfect mix of old and new. Picturesque parks, quaint streets and ornate buildings blend beautifully with state-of-the-art modern buildings, and stylish plazas. From its glorious Art Deco buildings, such as the Edificio Metropolis, to its picturesque cobbled streets, the city oozes an effortless style. An easy-going and friendly city, Madrid casually is an inviting cosmopolis.
Get a taste of the famous madrileños Goya and Velázquez at the Golden Triangle of Art, stare at Picasso’s Guernica at the Museo Reina Sofia, walk through Gran Via, visit Palacio Real, and then relax with a café con leche in Plaza Mayor. Don’t leave without trying chocolate and churros at San Ginés, the most famous in all of Madrid.
Best Time to visit
The best time to visit is autumn between the months of September to November or during spring (March to May) when balmy temperatures blow through the city, and hotel prices are still fairly low. If you don’t mind drab weather and a rather listless Madrid, you can visit in the winter when hotels reduce their rate even more. Peak tourist season is summer, despite its scorching heat, but many Madrileños are on vacation, leaving the city to your enjoyment!
Budget Hotels Areas
Madrid is a destination for all budgets. You can choose from luxurious penthouse hotels, to affordable chic hostels. If you feel like spending, chose Salamanca, for its ritzy and luxurious hotels.If you want to experience a more alternative lifestyle, choose Chueca, where you can find budget lodging, but make sure to book in advance, as especially during summer prices are high.
