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.
The guided tour only entry is interesting if you can speak Spanish. There is a leaflet which has some info in English but if you read up on it before hand from a guide, you'll find it a fascinating house to view. He was a writer who led a colourful life.
We stayed close to Plaza Santa Ana years ago when had visited Madrid for the first time years ago. It was so much fun to come again last year in May to see it! Still the same hustle and bustle, wonderful cafes and restaurants, very lively place... We especially enjoyed very unconventional "advertisement" in the top floor window of the...
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...
Food stays a matter of taste, but this was my taste! 17 course tasting + wine arrangement. Perfectly served in a modern neat but casual atmosphere. A journey through Spain guided by very knowledgeable guides which are very professional. Thank you Cebo team!
Salmon Guru belongs to the new breed of cocktail bars in Madrid that are trying to sophisticate the drinking scene, earlier dominated by the “whatever alcohol, whatever mix” and headache next morning. Salmon Guru is a small bar located in centre where you can enjoy some interesting decoration with superhero in the mirrors and neon lights. One of the interesting...

This is a wonderful restaurant. Small and quaint, with a personal touch and fantastic friendly service. I had one of the best meals in Madrid. I highly recommend the artichokes and all the seafood that was on the menu seemed great. Reasonably priced and not touristy.
Cacao Restobar is my favourite place to eat in Madrid. The friendly staff and great cocktails give a relaxed atmosphere, but the nachos are the most amazing thing on the menu. Fully loaded and the large size could easily feed 3 people. Your Madrid holiday will not be complete until you visit here, and absolute must!
We really enjoyed our stay at the Hotel Catalonia Las Cortes. The Hotel is in an excellent location in a busy, but quiet, part of the City. We walked to it from the Sol Metro station from the Airport - however soon found that the Anton Martin Metro station was even closer. The Hotel was clean and tastefully decorated -...
Short walk from the train station and El Prado Museum.
Quiet location. Complete continental breakfast with healthy options and fresh home made breads daily. Welcoming hosts who provided many suggestions for bars and restaurants close by. Rooms were well furnished.
Excellent service, breakfast in particular was truly superb. Beautiful suite, standard room small but very good with comfortable bed. 24/24 room service was much appreciated. Good shower, slight noise disturbance at night (very heavy doors). Stylish interior throughout the place, good cocktails in the hotel bar.
This hotel was perfect for our long weekend in Madrid. Clean and comfortable with a great free breakfast (don't miss the "hidden buffet"), friendly staff, and perfect location for seeing the sights.
The property has a boutique-y type feel and very modern. An enclosed shower is a nice plus for being in Europe!
After been in Axel Berlin, decided for Axel Madrid. A great staying. Great staff with high standard of service, designed and clean room, delicious and fresh breakfast, a wonderful roof bar and superb view of Madrid, and Alejandro, a professional masseur at the Spa. Thanks Axel !!
