Madrid is the capital and largest city of Spain. It is the third-most populous municipality in the European Union (after London and Berlin), and the fourth-most populous urban area in the European Union (after Paris, London, and the Ruhr Area).
Madrid, the Spanish metropolis in the heart of Castile, provides for a choice of nice hotels. The cityscape is characterized by the imposing Royal Palace with its fascinating Throne Room, Hall of Mirrors, Royal Chapel and many more interesting sights. While staying at a hotel in Madrid, we recommend you to stroll through the Château Park with its famous “Sabatini gardens”. Another beautiful sight you should not miss during your stay at a Madrid hotel is the cathedral Almudena with its impressing modern interior.
From your hotel in the centre of Madrid you can easily walk to the Plaza Mayor, which is surrounded by housing complexes with beautiful balconies and shady arcades. Many hotel guests in Madrid are attracted by the Plaza de Cibeles, the lively city centre, where you will find the famous fountain Fuente de Cibeles, which displays the goddess Kybele. If you are lucky you will be able to participate in a victory celebration by the local football team Real Madrid on this square.
Madrid’s hotels near Paseo del Prado are located in walking distance to the city’s most significant museums, such as the Museo del Prado, where the guests of Madrid hotels can see famous paintings by Goghs, Goyas or Toulouse-Lautrecs, or the Museo Reina Sofia, which is dedicated to modern art.
Madrid provides for one of the best organised metro lines that will bring you to your Madrid hotel quickly and comfortably. If you are staying at a hotel in the north eastern part of Madrid you are located near the local airport Barajas.
