Multi-story residential buildings decorated with ornate balconies line the traditional, quiet, and pretty streets of Chamberí. Humble storefronts and neighbourhood taverns are scattered across the lower levels down every block, and here and there, there's a cluster of tables on the sidewalk. It isn't ever crowded, but people are always out, poking into the tiny bakeries, hardware stores, and tobacco shops, or ducking into a bright, unadorned cerveceria to have a coffee or beer by the bar, flip through the paper, and check the sports score. The round Plaza Olavide, where the fairly regular network of streets breaks form, is among the most green and lively spots. Restaurants line its circumference and sought-after outdoor tables fill the center of the plaza, where people relax to the sounds of kids playing and street musicians' tunes.

reviewed 5 days ago by Ben S
Not as famous as the great museums in Madrid, the house and studio of this great Spanish impressionist is an amazing place to visit.
The studio shows many of the artists master pieces displayed as the artist would have when receiving clients and visitors.
The house with its Andalusian architecture, gives you a glimpse to the life in Madrid in...
"Interesting Free Tour of Restored but Unused Metro Station"
reviewed 12 May 2018 by Travelled_AS
Came across this by accident when doing a search for unusual things to do in Madrid. Anden O (or Platform 0) is actually the old Chamberi Metro station built in early 1900's but was disused from 1966 until recently. It has been restored to its original beauty with advertisements of the day and white tiles and quaint ticket booth etc...
In "Calle de Fuencarral" you can find many interesting and amazing shops that are open very late, it is located near by puerta del sol, Gran via. it is well worth to visit this place is you are interesting in shopping.
I must have gone pas this several times and missed it. It was only on the tour bus when it was pointed out to me and it really is distinctive and bought us a laugh as it so unusual and quirky.
Fernando Botero is famous for sculpting larger women.
The freshest sushi and sashimi ,the most delicious black cod and the most beautiful ingredients and presentation.
All round a top level Japanese gourmet experience run by a charming and knowledgeable host.

"If you visit Madrid and forget to go to Gandario you have missed a treat!"

A real foodie experiance, we were treated to a variety of tapas while we waited for our main dishes. The staff were fast and friendly and had allot of local customers (always a good sign). If this place was 4 times bigger it would still be full of customers.
Great location, staff. Beautiful Lobby with Bar, Restaurant and Garden area off the back of the restaurant. Parking garage below. We will definitely have to come back to Orfila for a few nights to further explore this beautiful city.
A hotel that has always been a favourite of mine has had a serious face lift and re-invention to fantastic results. If you are in Madrid and looking for a welcoming, quiet, safe and brilliantly located hotel then look no further. The change in the kitchens is the most note worthy, genuinely lovely food served with a smile, give it...
From the moment we arrived, we have felt like royalty. Service is fabulous, attentive and friendly. The individual sitting chamber areas are beautifully decorated and make you want to spend time congregating downstairs. Our room was well appointed with every amenity one could need or think of. I was so grateful for the luxury bathtub and bathroom.
We had an...
I've just come back from Madrid, and I've enjoy a lot in my stay in InterContinental, It's a strategic place as it's very near to the Sol Square and from there you'll find yourself near to all the historical places & also to the shopping places.
I’ve stayed here every year for about 5/6 years. The staff are great. It’s clean and if you get a courtyard room it’s quiet. Great black out blinds, linens , towels , bathroom , air con and WiFi. The location is good for me and the area is safe, but not particularly scenic. It’s still pleasing on the eye. The...
