Hotel Liabeny: Plaza del Carmen

By | 30 May, 2014 | 0 comments

Cines Madrid

On Plaza del Carmen, right in front of our hotel, one building is the centre of attention. Initially built by Daniel Zavala in 1898 with the purpose of holding a fronton, in 1906 it was given a new cultural use as well as its sporting one: the Central Kursaal was created, a café-chantant, a Madrid-style music hall where illustrious people such as the dramatist and novelist Ramón del Valle-Inclán frequently went to enjoy different shows with the most famous artists of the time.

Also during that time, in the early 20th century, another building of a similar kind was built on Plaza del Carmen on the land where an old bazaar used to be. Salón Chantecler became a very successful entertainment spot during that time with performances by famous cabaret artists such as ‘La Chelito’, with the “Sold Out’ sign being hung outside every day.

Preciados Street in Madrid: The origin of the name

By | 10 April, 2014 | 0 comments

Balanza antigua, instrumento de los almotacenes

Located in the heart of Madrid, between Plaza del Callao and the Puerta del Sol, tens of thousands of people walk through Calle Preciados every day. This is perhaps the busiest shopping street in the centre of Madrid and also the most expensive one: it occupies the #5 spot in the world ranking of streets with the highest rent price and it is located just fifty yards from our hotel.

However, few know the origin of its name. The street pays tribute to the Preciado brothers, who were beloved by the people of Madrid thanks to their excellent work as civil servants.

Our history goes back many centuries, back to 1490, when there was still a royal country house in this area that the monarchs used for leisure and recreation. read full article
