Our hotel is very close to what is known as Barrio de Palacio (Palace District), which starts at Plaza de Oriente and goes across Calle Bailén, San Quintín and Plaza de Isabel II up to the Palacio Real. It is a place where even today you can sense the city’s historical past, not only in the name of the streets but also in the charm of its buildings and monuments.
We begin this post with a theme series on must-see stops to take into account when visiting some of Madrid’s most emblematic areas.

If you come to Madrid with children, they will love having a couple of afternoons just for them. So many museums, day trips and walks deserve a prize!
In Madrid there are many things to do with children. As well as enjoying the Teleférico (cable car) and the Zoo, all year long you can find theatre shows just for children, where magic, fantasy and the most surprising stories ever told come to life.
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.
There are two dates in the calendar in which the people of Madrid bring out their regional attire. The city dresses up for partying and regional dancing and food take over, food such as the entresijos (lamb mesentery), gallinejas (chitterlings) and rosquillas (doughnuts).
One of those dates is in August, the Festival of the Virgen de la Paloma. However, the more important date is San Isidro, celebrated on May 15th.

Our guests often ask us how to get to Madrid-Barajas Airport from our hotel.
Thanks to the modern road and transport infrastructure in Madrid, it is very easy to get to the Adolfo Suárez Madrid-Barajas Airport from our hotel despite being in the very heart of the city. You can get there both by car or public transport.
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.
The music is currently going through an excellent moment in time in Spain. The Gran Vía in Madrid has seen this genre re-emerge in the last few years inside its theatres, with large products viewed by millions of spectators: Les Misérables, Jesus Christ Superstar, The Beauty and the Beast…
