Hotel in Madrid

Post in partnership with Hotel Mediodia

We were in the city of Madrid in February 2015 for a few days off which included other cities of Spain and also Morocco. We had known the city before on the occasion of a long 8 hour connection at Barajas airport, which allowed us to make a quick tour of some parts of the city. Also in my case, I was once more in Madrid, at 16, for two days.

This time, the plan was to spend two full days in the city, almost three. For our flight from Madrid to Marrakech decolria to 21: 30h Barajas.

The city of Madrid has many lodging options. From the most expensive 5-star hotels until very uptight and cheap hostels or hostels. Many neighborhoods in the city enjoy good hotel services as well as transport infrastructure.

Madrid has a good network of subway to the tourist get around. We always chose to stay at the hotel next to one of them, wherever we are, as this greatly facilitates the movement and reduces the time to load the bags through the streets.

The city of Madrid has its territory divided into 21 districts, which in turn are subdivided into districts. See what they are below:

Much of the attractions are in this region or else very close to it. What can be more distant are the outlets. Probably out, including the metropolitan area of ​​Madrid.

The area of ​​Puerta del Sol is one of the most coveted, especially by the younger audience because of the movement and bustle of the region. Here you will find bars and restaurants, Corte Inglés, exchange houses, shops of all kinds, many hotels and is very close to Plaza Mayor.

In tourist itineraries, often this is the starting point to explore Madrid’s city, it is still considered the absolute center of the city.

The area of ​​Huertas, also called literary district or neighborhood of the letters, which is located between the Sun zones and Atocha, is also a good choice of accommodation.

The district received the literary name for there lived important writers such as Miguel de Cervantes and Quevedo. Its main street is Calle Huertas and the main square, Plaza de Santa Ana. To date conserves its streets animation air and bohemia that area.

This neighborhood has an important nightlife with restaurants, tapas bars and cafes with more cultural air, art galleries and great hotel deals.

As Huertas, Lavapies, next door to officially known as Barrio Embajadores, it is one of the oldest neighborhoods in Madrid, which still preserves the traditional way of being Madrid native, despite its multiculturalism. At one point of its existence it consisted mostly of Jews. Currently has the feature of being a neighborhood that is home to many immigrants and their main area is the Plaza de Lavapies, as well as Calle Argumosa where are the restaurants and tapas bars. This is one of the entertainment areas of Madrid. And because of their range of hotels and central location, it is also very popular for tourists.

Finally, let’s talk about another good area for you staying in Madrid. The left last because it was there that we were too.

I’m talking about Atocha area, which is the important and main train station in Madrid, which bears the same name. It is also part of the central district of the city.

We stayed at Hotel Mediodia. A beautiful building like those classic hotels located around the main squares of European capitals. It is practically in front of Atocha station, just by crossing the street. And very few steps from the Prado Museum, Retiro Park and behind it is the Museum Reyna Sofia.

It is classified as a 2 star hotel, I believe that the lack of recreational facilities, as for the quality of the rooms (decor, linens, bath items, flooring, painting) and quality of service, I would give stars more he.

The breakfast is served on the first floor and consists of bread, fruit, cold meats, yogurts, jams, juices and coffee.

Really we love the quality of the room. All very new and well maintained. A beautiful view from the window to the Atocha station and whenever we needed something, any employee who was in the reception served very well and with a broad smile on his face.

The price of the hotel is also available and you should consider that here will be close to transportation that can take you even to the airport in addition to offering food and drinks that have there and being able to get to walk to some of the main attractions of Madrid.

Our stay at the Hotel Mediodia was fantastic and facilitated our movement through the city. This is therefore our suggestion for you hotel stay in Madrid when you know this fascinating city.
