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.
It’s a charming house dating back to the early 17th century. The tour of the house gives you a glimpse of how did the well-to-do people in Madrid lived in the 17th century. Best part - it’s free! You can email them beforehand to book a spot for the tour in English. The handout is also quite informative.
We were wandering around the Huerta neighbourhood when we came across this magnificent looking church and what a great find.
In a city that is packed with great looking churches this was one of the best we went to.
The church is famous as it houses the 17th century statue of Jesus.
This Baroque style of architecture of the church...

When we arrived the owner took time to explain the menu and gave us two wines to taste to help us select one. The menu was not huge but everything sounded great, so it was hard to choose. After the house appetiser of potato my husband had a tomato based soup and I chose the confit of leeks. We would...
We are here on Saturday night. The food was amongst the best I have ever eaten. We had croquettas and moussaka to start...followed by ravioli and fillet steak and passion fruit cheesecake. Completely delicious. The waitors are super friendly. The vibe is very inviting and the place was buzzing. A "must visit" place. Will be back!

Boutique gem; closed to everything and yet kind of a hidden location. Building was exquisitely remodeled, friendly and efficient staff, nice and spacious rooms, very nice breakfast.
Will go back again for sure, outstanding value
I have been staying at Axel Madrid once before in Madrid and I am also a frequent guest at Axelbeach Maspalomas which I also love.
Next to the really nice interior, it's the service that offers the extra that made my stay. All the stuff was super helpful and friendly. I got many nice recommendations for restaurants and nightlife.
