Almost without realising, summer is over and we are dressing up in scary costumes to celebrate Halloween and suddenly it’s almost Christmas. November has arrived and the streets light up to welcome Santa Claus in the most important time of year for shops, families, gatherings and reunions…Everything is important at Christmas and it has now arrived.

Madrid really enjoys Christmas. It seems like a different city, even more beautiful if that’s even possible. There are lights on all the streets, warmth in all of its spaces, smiles everywhere, chestnut sellers on the streets bringing a bit of warmth and traditional smells and a never-ending list of events that allow you to experience a unique and magnificent holiday from now onwards.

Nature can always bring us benefits in many different aspects. We have within our reach, and closer than we think, many different tools that can increase our wellbeing and good health. Since ancestral times, everything that nature brings us has been used and put into practice, making it the centre of our existence. With time and due to mankind’s creative and inventive skills, we have left some of these natural tools and applications behind in favour of other synthetic materials, despite the fact that, recently, there has been an increasing interest in bringing back what’s healthy and natural. This is where this new aesthetic and wellness therapy comes from, which has wood as its main protagonist.

Like aromatherapy, colour therapy, or other alternative therapies that help us balance our energy, the one that we present today, wood therapy, helps us improve our body and get rid of the stress that we can get due to bad postures or knocks.

Do you like trains? Come to the Railway Museum

By | 15 July, 2015 | 0 comments

Museo Ferrocarril MadridCan you imagine travelling on a real journey on an early-20th-century train from Madrid to Aranjuez? You can actually do this thanks to the legendary Strawberry Train, El Tren de la Fresa. It leaves the Railway Museum, the Museo del Ferrocarril, at 10.00am and returns from Aranjuez at 6.00pm. The price includes the historical value of travelling on such a machine, and it costs 29.90€ for adults and 14.95€ for children.

However, to immerse yourself in the picturesque world of trains you do not necessarily need to board one, since you can discover it at the Railway Museum itself, in the heart of the Arganzuela district. Located in the old Delicias station, which reminisces of the old steelwork stations like Gare Saint-Lazare in Paris, it contains an interesting collection of old locomotives.

La Puerta del Sol hacia 1885

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.
