Thyssen museum is in a class of it's own. The unique chronological ordering of art makes innovators stand out amongst there peers. Oh yeah Reina Sofia and Pardo is nothing to sneeze at either. Amazing collection of art in this city!

4 stars Husa Princesa Very good 8 Comfortable newly remodeled rooms. Hotel is located right next to the Arguelles Metro station and a supermarket. Staff was friendly and helpful. I was a bit skeptical given the room price, but was more than pleasantly surprised. I would recommend this hotel to friends and would definitely return should I find myself in Madrid again.
4 stars Hotel Liabeny Excellent 8.9 Staff was very helpful and friendly. Location was excellent, near Puerto del Sol, but quiet. Rooms were spacious.
4 stars Senator Gran Vía 21 Hotel Very good 8.2 The location was fabulous and in the middle of everything. My husband and I love to walk in a new city to see the things that we would otherwise miss. The location of this hotel allowed us to do just that. We were close to many of the sites to see, as well as surrounded by a vast variety of restaurants and shopping stores. The staff was super friendly and very helpful. We never felt like we were ever bothering the staff when we asked a question. We were in room 803 which had an amazing view from out terrace. The room was cleaned daily and the bed was a king sized bed. The room itself was a little small but that is normal compared to the rest of Europe. Besides, if you are in Madrid, you don't spend that much time in your room anyway.

    The Spanish Soul of Art and Entertainment

    The modern Madrid is one of the greenest cities in Europe and the most popular destination in Spain. Whether you want to experience its legendary nightlife or a flamenco show, this is the place to be.

    The renowned Prado Museum holds one of the world’s finest art collections with iconic paintings by El Greco, Velázquez and Goya. For a more modern touch, the Museo Reina Sofia houses works by Picasso and Dali.

    Start your evening at Puerta del Sol, one of the city’s busiest spots. Make some room in your stomach for great tapas and sangria in La Latina district, south of the city’s most famous plaza, Plaza Mayor.

    Real Madrid plays at Santiago Bernabeu and Atlético Madrid competes at Vicente Calderón Stadium, two opportunities that no sports fan will want to miss. The popular Salamanca district is a great place to look for boutique gifts and unique shops.

    Thanks to great public transportation system, getting to the city center from Madrid Barajas International Airport is very easy. Whether you’re looking for luxury hotels, budget hostels or comfy apartments, Booking.com has a perfect place to stay for your Madrid holiday.

    Hotels that Guests Love in Madrid

    • Everything. There was nothing to dislike about this hotel. Location was great for all the sights and close to Sol Square. Large room, great facilities. This was our last stay-over on a 22 night tour off northern Spain including staying at 6 hotels, in terms of value for money (given that we were in Madrid) this had to be the best.

    • We were traveling in Spain and Portugal for three weeks. We stayed in six different hotels during that time. This was the largest, best room that we had. The bathroom had two sinks, was large & very modern. Very close to the airport with shuttle service. All-in-all a great place. Good restaurant, excellent professional staff.

    • The free shuttle showed up just as we turned in the rental, taxi would have cost 30euro. The hotel was ultra modern, 8min. from the airport,would have enjoyed a longer stay.We stayed 22 places all over Spain and Portugal,Axor was one of the best.
