I loved my stay at the Abacadabra B&B in Madrid. In december I spent almost one month in Spain and this was one of my favorite locations. It's small, a bit quirky but in a good way. The owners are very friendly and give a lot of local tips. The lady Norma has worked as an artist and this comes... More

I loved the husband wife. They have a beautiful location on the second floor (no elevator) and found our room at the front beautiful and roomy. The breakfast in the morning was very good. We had to leave early on our second day and was promised a bagged breakfast which they forgot to provide. They emailed an apology which was... More

The Abracadabra B&B is well located in the Latin a district and provides a good base for exploring the city. Up a dark stairway the B&B is a riot of colour, the oranges and turquoises, covered in pictures and carvings have a very South American feeling to them, although it was a tad oppressive at timez. The rooms were a... More

Abracadabra is charming. The decor is interesting and creative. Our room and bathroom were spotlessly clean. The location is great. Best of all are the humorous and lively Eduardo and the kind and lovely Norma. Eduardo took a lot of time to explain the city and advise us where the best places were to sight-see and to eat. A genuinely... More

We booked 2 rooms here based upon reviews in Trip Advisor. My wife and I got a double with private bath and our boys shared twins in a room with the shared baths. The place is very clean, rooms are cozy, breakfast is great (certainly by European standards). Is in a great location for touring - many major attractions within... More

Wound up spending an hour each night chatting with Eduardo and Norma. They're really funny and they are fantastic hosts. The interior has Norma's personal touch and is very comfortable. The breakfast service is really good (we left each morning feeling stuffed).

My friend Terry & I have just returned from Madrid having spent four nights at this wonderful B&B. It is excellent value, clean, quirky and the icing on the cake is that the hosts are so lovely. The other positive reviews have covered everything nicely, so all I can add is that we stayed in room 4, we were not... More

The decor of this B&B is charming and unique. The location is very convenient to walk to the palace, Sabatini Gardens, Calle Major, 5 minute walk to a street of great restaurants/taps (Calle Cave Baja), 5 minute to Metro La Latina. The host, Eduardo (from Argentina), is charming, fluent in English, and full of very interesting and helpful information about... More

Staying in La Latina

Neighborhood Profile
La Latina
La Latina is a charming neighborhood with two unique personalities. At first glance, it’s distinctly old-world, with narrow streets weaving a maze among charming stone buildings in sunny, bright colors like yellow and pink. The other side of La Latina is characterized by a young population and a bohemian vibe, as evidenced by a dynamic and evolving selection of new bars, shops, coworking spaces, and other businesses popping up in the area. In the northern part of the neighborhood, the Cava Alta and Cava Baja streets constitute the tapas center of Madrid, where each age-old restaurant serves up distinctive specialties like huevos rotos and patatas bravas. Locals have come here for generations to while away hours over drinks and tapas with friends. On Sundays and public holidays, the streets to the south of La Latina metro station transform into a giant open-air market full of locals sifting through tent after tent of art, apparel, and antiques. Any day of the week, the intriguing blend of the traditional and the hip make the streets of La Latina worth exploring.
