Just south of the sprawling campus of the Complutense University of Madrid, Arguelles exudes a fast-paced, collegiate vibe. The main street, Calle Princesa, is filled with twenty-somethings rushing between classes and errands, meeting up with classmates, and grabbing cheap beers and cheap eats. This is a prime shopping spot where the major Spanish clothing and department store chains are less busy than their downtown counterparts, and there is an array of casual dining options to choose from. Check out nearby outdoor spaces such as the lushly planted Plaza de España to the south, which is often filled with craft stalls. To the west of Arguelles is the giant Parque Oueste, a calm and picturesque park with its own Egyptian temple.
The Marquis of Cerralbo left his home & all its treasures to Spain after his death so this museum is beautifully preserved, well looked after & cared for. There's so much to look at, the riches & stunning décor. The imagination & creativity that went into each & every room is amazing. Then pop over the road to watch the...

If you want to stand next to Don Quixote then visit the Cervantes Monument on Plaza de Espana.
We visited in the evening and got a photo opportunity to stand next to it although there was still a queue. It is a little hairy to climb off it as well.

Visited Plaza de Espno twice during our Spain tour.once on begining and second time on return journey.it is a nice garden well maintained with fountains and traditional arcetecture. Very near to grand via so when you are tired after shopping at grand via and lot of walking it provides a soothing place to sit relax on one.of.many traditional mettalic benches...
The Torre de Madrid is a tall skyscraper that is beside the Plaza de España. It is quite elegant and is a good place to live in. I had a late uncle who lived here in the 1950's and he and his family enjoyed living in it.
Our Air BnB host recommended this place and we thought we would go early to make sure we got a table. Huh?! It opens at 8.30 and we arrived at 8.45 to find the tables all taken (or booked). So we went for a walk for half an hour and came back - in the end, it was about 50...
Our hotel recommended a restaurant on this street but we weren't wild about the menu. Read reviews about this place, looked at the menu and decided to eat there. We loved everything we had there!
Crispy anemones with seaweed salad, lemongrass emulsion: delectable bites.
Croquettes of mussels and crab: amazing.
Glad we decided to be adventurous- best meal...
Just arrived in Madrid and was looking for somewhere to eat..followed TripAdvisor recommendations and as it was open all day popped in. Definitely not disappointed. As recommended I had the quesadillas with black sausage (black pudding really), which was really good. Not too expensive...a good start to our short break.
An excellent experience, except for the fly that hovered around our table. We learned the word “trampantojo”, which means something that seems to be what it isnt. As an example, we had arroz del mar which seemed to be rice but was actually bits of squid cut to resemble rice. There were several dishes following this fashion. All dishes showed...
It is our first trip to Madrid and wanted an authentic Spanish meal and experience and was not disappointed. We had oxtail stew, and grilled fish with garlic and goat cheese salad. The restaurant was affordable. Cozy and clean and had a vibrant atmosphere. I was given a flower for Valentine's which was unexpected. We love Dantxari and Madrid.!
My husband and I stayed at this hotel for 2 nights. The staff was extremely friendly. Our room was comfortable and had a great view. It was in a great location and we could walk to many sites. The metro was across the street and easy to use. They provide a wonderful buffet breakfast.
Suites Viena was a perfect hotel for my stay in Madrid. Great location, being close to Plaza de Espana and an easy walk to many sights. A big plus was the kitchenette, always a bonus when travelling to be able to make breakfast, coffee, etc, and the room was of a generous size and very comfortable. Reception staff were always...
Hotel is good at a great location in madrid. Everything being so close and at walking distance. I would rate it as a 4 star experience as it falls lil short of the 5 star vibe but overall experience was good. Staff is very polite and helpful.
The food and service is good and breakfast is also elaborate.
Apartment is good size, nice and clean. It is close to the metro station and super market. The Kitchenette is very small and the hob does not work if the pan is big. The hob switches off if the pan is bigger. That is the only problem with the apartment.
The wife and I recently stayed in this hotel for 2 nights at the beginning of February.
The location of this hotel is perfect. It’s only a short walk, about 3 minutes, from plaza de Espana metro station and all of Madrid’s major attractions are within walking distance too.
The hotel was very clean and the staff friendly. Overall the...
