Surrounding Madrid are a number of great places to stay, particularly if you prefer to be close to the airport, or want to spend much of your time outdoors in areas such as the Upper Manzanare Basin Regional Park. However, to truly taste all of the city mouthwatering flavors, the best bet for your Madrid getaway is to stay downtown. Here are some of our favorite hotels in Madrid’s central district:
Madrid vacations offer the precious chance to view masterpieces you studied in Art Appreciation class and have often admired from afar. Visit one—or all—of the museums that make up the Golden Triangle of Art: Prado Museum, Reina Sofia Museum, and Thyssen-Bornemisza Museum. As you stroll along the city’s streets, you’ll pass the Royal Palace of Madrid, Cibeles Palace, the expertly manicured gardens in BuenRetiro Park, and the Paseo del Prado with its impressively detailed fountains. The city of Madrid has more than enough points of interest to fill out any vacation. That said, you still may want to find a car rental so you can enjoy a few daytrips to the nearby cities of Segovia, Toledo, and Guadalajara.
The most popular time for festivals is from April to October, with events happening nearly every week. May features the local celebration of the Fiestas del 2 de Mayo, where throngs gather to celebrate the city’s heritage with live music, festive dancing, and bull fights. May also sees the beginning of the month-long celebration of Fiestas de San Isidro—the patron saint of Madrid—which give you the chance to experience traditional local dress and cultural cuisine.
