Spain’s capital has also got a lot going for it in the way of culture. The centre is home to its fair share of architectural delights, and no trip would be complete without admiring the Plaza Major, the Puerta de Alcala, the Paseo del Prado and the Palacio Real. City of movida, Madrid’s inhabitants definitely know how to party, meaning there is about as much to do by night as by day.

Art lovers can take in masterpieces, both classic and contemporary, at the Museo del Prado, the Museo Reina Sofia and the Thyssen-Bornemisza, which are all housed in impressive buildings, themselves worth the detour. And of course there’s the famous Bernabeu Stadium, home of Real Madrid – a must-see for all football fans ! From low-cost to luxury, Madrid is teeming with hotels. Whether you’re looking for a traditional pensione-style guesthouse, a hostel or a contemporary design hotel, the city has much to offer.

Which Neighbourhood?

Each neighbourhood possesses its own different atmosphere. The most popular districts among tourists – the barrios of Chueca, Sol, La Latina, Malasaba, Lavapies, Moncloa, Argüelles – are all located around the Puerta Del Sol, the city’s epicentre. These lively, central districts buzz with activity night and day, and while many visitors make the most of the nightlife, those who are sensitive to noise should ensure their hotel is soundproof and request a room at the back. Another option is to put a little distance between yourself and the centre by staying in one of the outlying areas such as Arturo Soria, where prices and noise levels are both lower. Far from the maddening crowd yet a quick and easy metro ride into the heart of the action, the more residential area of Retiro also hosts a good choice of hotels,. If you’re planning on hitting the shops, take a look at our selection of hotels around the neighbourhood of Salamanca.

Diversity of Choice

Reflecting the cosmopolitan nature of the city, Madrid’s hotels cover a wide variety of categories. Modern or classic, vast or intimate, the range of different styles is demonstrated in our selection of unique hotels, our pick of central hotels and our recommendations for the best business hotels. This being Spain, where temperatures generally sit around the 40°C in summer, the heat – and how to cool off – should also be considered, which is why we’ve put together a selection of hotels with pools.

Price-wise

If you’re travelling on a tight budget, Madrid’s pensiones (guesthouses) and youth hostels provide economical accommodation from around €15 per night. Judging by the reviews, the Pension Jemasaca-Palma 61 is well-worth a try, with double rooms from €45 (€55 in high season) – a snip if you’re a couple sharing. At this price, the facilities are basic but functional and clean, and include an all-important private bathroom.

For families, renting an apartment can be the most cost-effective solution. Week-long rentals are commonplace in Madrid and often work out at a very good price, from €20 to €25 per person per night.

In order to find lower prices, travellers can also choose to look further away from the centre, as shown in our selection of budget accommodation and our recommendations for hotels near to Atocha station. Given that Madrid is a typical example of a traffic clogged capital, where both driving and parking are quite chaotic, the metro is a blessing for practicality and facility,.
