Multi-story residential buildings decorated with ornate balconies line the traditional, quiet, and pretty streets of Chamberí. Humble storefronts and neighbourhood taverns are scattered across the lower levels down every block, and here and there, there's a cluster of tables on the sidewalk. It isn't ever crowded, but people are always out, poking into the tiny bakeries, hardware stores, and tobacco shops, or ducking into a bright, unadorned cerveceria to have a coffee or beer by the bar, flip through the paper, and check the sports score. The round Plaza Olavide, where the fairly regular network of streets breaks form, is among the most green and lively spots. Restaurants line its circumference and sought-after outdoor tables fill the center of the plaza, where people relax to the sounds of kids playing and street musicians' tunes.
This is a museum in which you can get not only an overview of the artist, but also an idea of how the daily life of upper middle clases was 100 years ago. Due to the fact that it was the painter´s house where he lived and also painted some of his masterpieces.
I have found out about this museum just clicking around the hotel on google maps and what a surprise! The opening hours are quite short, but the entrance is free and every hour there is even a tour guide telling you the story of the Chamberi station, so if you speak Spanish, I really recommend to join the tour (approx....
This free museum occupies a Metro station that was closed in 1966 when the line was modernised and the station was found to be in the wrong place. There is a 10 minute long introductory film in Spanish but still easy to understand. The platform and ticket office have been sympathetically restored and there are beautiful tiles and original adverts...
Check out the wonderfully voluptuous Botero statue, the toad statue directly to the south on Castellana is fun, and the Monumento al Descubrimiento de America is pretty great, too. Colon has a beautiful fountain and it's just a pretty spot in Madrid.
Excellent grilled steaks and perfectly cooked fish on the menu. I had fish and calamares main courses and the food is just so good. Good service and excellent produce quality makes this a place to go back to. The place is pretty busy overall, so its best to call and make a reservation prior.
We ordered their Omakase. Good food & service with very reasonable price. The only negative was the absence of a good sake list. We've ordered the most expensive on the sake list, but the sake still gave me a terrible headache, which only happened to me when the sake was of inferior quality. Would still recommend this restaurant.
Excellent restaurant, former casa de comidas for the district neighbors, which has evolved into bigger and better things. Ask for the house specialties (chili crab, croquetas, octopus, T-bone, or any of the recommended catch of the day) While they do not have a certified somelier, we were guided by a helpful and knowledgeable individual and discovered two very nice tempranillos...
The hotel is one of the best in the world. Very beautiful in a quiet location and with wonderful staff. We were looked after brilliantly. The food was delicious too with superb breakfasts and we enjoyed a fantastic dinner. We would happily recommend the hotel to everyone.
It’s not only a beautiful hotel ,the staff makes you feel comfortable . It’s location it’s perfect because it allows you to choose to go to iconic places without being in crowd turism zones. The restaurants are very nice and they have a great chef.
Nice and comfortable hotel. Very well located pretty close to the center of the city. And it’s more interesting streets regarding museums, shops, sightseeing...Very kind staff. Delicious and varied breakfast. Nice building
The perfect hotel in Madrid. Metro on your doorstep so simple to get around. Impeccable service from all staff. Pulled it out if the bag by upgrading us to the rooftop tower suite for my birthday. Thank you for making our holiday a perfect one!
We stayed at the Hotel Santo Mauro during a weekend trip to Madrid. The hotel is located in the Salamanca neighborhood (one of the most affluent neighborhoods in the center) and is about a 25 minute taxi ride from Barajas airport. The location of the hotel is very convenient yet relatively quiet.
We arrived quite late in the evening but...
