We visited this museum few days ago and we were pleasantly surprised. It is a really beautiful house with incredible collection of objects from all continents. It is free on Sundays, you have to leave your all bags in the boxes at the reception. You are also not allowed to touch any of the objects and make photos with flash.... More

Great museum.... great to see how a very select family lived. And it seems that it has been kept very similar to how they lived in it. very opulent. staff was very helpful. signage tells you quite a bit about the rooms and furnishings.

If you plan to visit this place do not miss the Egyptian temple right across the street in the park. It is free, small and authentic (present from Egypt), quite unexpected thing to see in the center of Madrid. There are also great views of the city from the park. This museum is quite nice. We especially liked the grand... More

Unfortunately we ran out of time to visit this museum on our first visit to Madrid a few years ago even though it was just down the road from our hotel, this time we were not going to miss it. This is a fabulous museum, it is the former home of the 17th Marquis of Cerralbo, and you get to... More

What a beautiful museum of the former house of Sorolla the painter. Its a welcome and relaxing respite from some of Madrids monolithic museums. The gardens are beautiful as well.

Fabulous little Museum. Takes you back to a time, not so long ago, of pure opulence. To me the building itself was more interesting than the artefacts inside. The ballroom and the entrance hall were a delight to see. Only €8 for two adults and an audio guide so excellent value. Just be aware it closes for a few hours... More

This is probably the best value-for-money deal I've had in my life. For only 3 Euro you can visit this incredible place - we found it accidentally and since it was raining outside we decided to take a look around. I will never regret my decision - it's big, full of interesting rooms, furniture and exponents. At the check in... More

Of course you have to go to the Prado while in Madrid. I equally enjoy small museums, however, and this is an excellent one to spend an hour or two exploring. The entry fee is extremely reasonable (3 euros, I believe) and it is free at certain times (Sunday mornings, I think). Interesting insights can be gained of Spanish history... More

Staying in Arguelles

Neighborhood Profile
Arguelles
Just south of the sprawling campus of the Complutense University of Madrid, Arguelles exudes a fast-paced, collegiate vibe. The main street, Calle Princesa, is filled with twenty-somethings rushing between classes and errands, meeting up with classmates, and grabbing cheap beers and cheap eats. This is a prime shopping spot where the major Spanish clothing and department store chains are less busy than their downtown counterparts, and there is an array of casual dining options to choose from. Check out nearby outdoor spaces such as the lushly planted Plaza de España to the south, which is often filled with craft stalls. To the west of Arguelles is the giant Parque Oueste, a calm and picturesque park with its own Egyptian temple.
