Also known as Barrio de las Letras, Huertas was once home to prominent literary figures, Miguel de Cervantes and Lope de Vega among them. The neighbourhood is committed to celebrating its rich heritage: Calle Huertas itself is inlaid with quotes from celebrated authors, street names pay homage to them, and second-hand bookshops pervade. Huertas receives a fair amount of spillover from the center — side streets around Plaza Santa Ana take on a foreign party atmosphere at night, and you always see young backpackers navigating the streets — but as you descend into the neighbourhood, everything becomes a little more cramped and slightly less refined, and takes on more of an underground feel. Live music is at the heart of Huertas: by night, its subdued bars are ideal for meeting friends, sipping cocktails, and chatting quietly while enjoying jazz or singer-songwriter performances.
Very interesting place with free entrance. All you have to do is to book your visit in advance via email (they reply super quickly) and come. They have free guided tour through the rooms of the house, full of interesting information. Enjoyed my visit a lot! Highly recommended!
Beautiful area plenty of restaurants for Tapas. The quality is average, and there are so many seats that usually is possible to have a table in a terrace. There is also a top terrace in the hotel ME perfect for some drinks.
The Congress of Spain is a bold but plain, as others have said neoclassical Greek, building like so many other governmental buildings in great democracies. With that said it is well set across from a nice park/plaza that is dedicated to the conquistador Cortes. We had the the change to see it several times in different lights as our hotel...
This street has many bars and restaurants with every choice imaginable. It was also where my hostel was situated so it was a prime location for me within a five minute walk of Anton Martin metro station and just 10 minutes to all the bright lights of Madrid city centre. Although it is a beautiful pedestrianised street it does get...
There is a chance that very soon this restaurant gets on Michelin star, and you need to pay much more for the tasting menu. So book a table already!
Fantastic fine-dining evening. Great balance and rhythm between the plates. The total amount of food spot on. Top notch service as you can expect from a restaurant looking for that first...

"A Great Experience"
reviewed 5 days ago by TravelmadEdinburgh
As regular Madrid visitors we are always trying new places and on the basis of what I had read and a recommendation from a local expert we booked Moratin Vinoteca for lunch. You get the feeling from the minute that you enter that this is going to be a very enjoyable experience and it was. The warm welcome, the lovely...
We wandered in here on our last night in Madrid and were very warmly welcomed by one of the owners, Chris. With an inquiry of gin & tonics, it became instantly clear that these guys took great pride in the spirits they carry and also the manner in which they prepare their cocktails. Truly artisanal and crafted with thoughtful ingredients...
The artichokes, the rice, the green tomatoes...I could go on. We had two wonderful lunches. The menu of the Day is a bargain, changes daily and includes some of their best dishes. Try the Drac Magic red wine. Make reservations as it only seats about 20 people.

"Best Food in Madrid!!!!"
reviewed 3 days ago by LA_Travelers_1
My husband and I stumbled on La Cabana and decided to try it. They were packed and told us they didn't have a table for another hour or so - which would have been after 10. We asked if we could eat at the bar and they were happy to accommodate us. All of the staff was friendly and welcoming....

The Urban is at the best area in Madrid, close to Puerta del Sol and Plaza Mayor, and also close to the Prado, the Thyssen- Bornemisza, and other museums. The House of Representatives is across the street.
It is a modern 6-story building with an interior atrium and glass elevator. The lobby, as well as the rest of the hotel...
The Doubletree Hotel is located close to the City center. You can easy walk to the important locations restaurants and shopping. The breakfast was dellicious. The room very clean and WLAN access did work perfect.
Great location. Near the Plaza de Angel. Lots of great shopping and restaurants in the area. The room had a nice little balcony and was clean. I'd say it was the best hotel we stayed in on our trip. It wasn't too far away from the Prado Museum. About a 10 minute walk. The concierge was very helpful in getting...
I stay there only for one night, I had a nice room with a very nice view
the check in was very fast and friendly
the only comment that I would do , it's regarding the lobby I would add some furniture
But what I really enjoy is the staff
