We were looking for a place to stay near the Prado, and found this place on Trip Advisor. It is ideally located right in the heart of old Madrid. We had a lovely room with a double bed and ensuite shower, and balcony overlooking a quiet street. This area use to be the antique district of Madrid. However, when the... More

If you're going to be in Madrid and you enjoy the bed-and-breakfast experience, then I can't imagine any other choice than Artistic B&B. Everything about my six-day experience was absolutely wonderful. Rodolfo and Paola are an extremely kind and intelligent young couple who have created a superior lodging experience for Madrid visitors. When I first arrived, Rodolfo and I sat... More

My husband and I stayed at this unique B&B in a great location of Madrid. Each room had a lot of character and the group of couples we met was so enjoyable during our breakfasts together. There is no elevator but we had no issues with climbing the 3 flights of stairs to our accomodations. VERY close to Museum Prado... More

The Artistic is a total delight from the moment you arrive. Check-in involves sitting at the breakfast table for a leisurely chat, with the formalities taking second place. I thought the name Artistic referred to the proximity of Madrid's major art galleries, but I was mistaken. The whole b & b is beautifully and colourfully decorated in Paola's distinctive style,...

We (two sisters, two daughters) read about this wonderful quirky B&B in the Saturday Guardian Travel section. It really lived up to the description: in walking distance of all the galleries, quiet at night, comfortable cheerful rooms, great breakfast, bookshelf full of good reads and, best of all, delightful owners, who went out of their way to welcome us and...

We stayed at this B&B by chance because the hotel we usually choose was full. It was nice to discover the place. It is well located. The room was comfortable, well equipped and clean. If you have problems with stairs and/or travel heavy, then note that the building has no lift. But this is clearly mentioned in the B6B website.... More

Superb location, comfortable rooms, extremely friendly and helpful hosts, attractive surroundings, and a satisfying breakfast. We'd definitely stay here again if we returned to Madrid. There's a small book swap section officially a BookCrossing Zone. (If you don't know what BookCrossing is about go to BookCrossing.Com). Be warned: the stairs are rather narrow, and this B&B is actually on the... More

This is a really nice place to stay. The location is great, close to everything. Paola and Rudolpho are amongst the friendliest, nicest hosts I have had the pleasure to stay with. If I get back to Madrid it will be my first choice as long as I am fit enough to climb the stairs"

A delightful B&B - full of character and great attention to detail Paolo and Rodolfo are amazing hosts - friendly, helpful and really interesting to chat with. The location is also perfect, we were able to walk everywhere. I can't recommend highly enough. If you go to Madrid you must stay here - it will make your stay!

I really enjoyed staying here. Rudolph and his wife were great and very helpful. I really enjoyed speaking with Rudolph about the city and other experiences he's had as an innkeeper over the years. The room itself was well-appointed and clean, and the ensuite bathroom was a nice touch as well. The location of the B&B is excellent. There are... More

Staying in Huertas

Neighborhood Profile
Also known as Barrio de las Letras, Huertas was once home to prominent literary figures, Miguel de Cervantes and Lope de Vega among them. The neighborhood is committed to celebrating its rich heritage: Calle Huertas itself is inlaid with quotes from celebrated authors, street names pay homage to them, and second-hand bookshops pervade. Huertas receives a fair amount of spillover from the center — side streets around Plaza Santa Ana take on a foreign party atmosphere at night, and you always see young backpackers navigating the streets — but as you descend into the neighborhood, everything becomes a little more cramped and slightly less refined, and takes on more of an underground feel. Live music is at the heart of Huertas: by night, its subdued bars are ideal for meeting friends, sipping cocktails, and chatting quietly while enjoying jazz or singer-songwriter performances.
