You probably know that typical hot chocolate in Spain is a thick, almost pudding like drink. They tend to serve it with churros, which can be very good. But I prefer a hot chocolate that you can drink, so at Valor you need to ask for a Hot Chocolate with Milk (chocolate caliente con leche). And of course you will... More

Place been around since 1881 I think. Good churros for those who want to try out the traditional treat. however the service is not as good as I'd have liked. the general manager was rude and there was a huge queue.

Never been to a place like this before! just about anything you like to do with chocolate! The main thing that everyone has is a large bowl of drinking chocolate and a plate of churro's to dip in it! we got in to the bad habit of visiting this place every night during our stay. Friendly staff, nice decor and... More

When I am in Madrid, I always visit Chocolaterias Valor for churros and hot chocolate. The chocolate drink has a rich and thick taste, like real chocolate. Great variety offered. I highly recommend!

were desperate to taste churros, picked this one and it was pretty good. We caught sun (+18C) sitting outside at 2pm-3pm on November 17. That was the only hour sitting outside on the sun

I prefer the chocolate here to Chocolateria San Gibes, it's much thicker and richer. In addition, Valor has multiple variation, I think San Gines only has 1 type.

Well when in Madrid you have to do the churros and chocolate experience. I was walking around in the evening and passed by. Decided to stop. The place was full, the staff was overwhelmed. The churros were good, it took my server about 10 minutes to bring the chocolate that goes with the churros, I was sitting at the counter.... More

Staying in Centro

Neighborhood Profile
Expansive plazas, local and foreign crowds, street performers, colorful lights, window shopping, restaurant signs promising the best paella, ham, and churros con chocolate- this is downtown Madrid, a collection of plazas interconnected by a network of side streets. Some of these side streets are wide pedestrian shopping routes, and some are hidden, so it's possible to duck in and out of the bustle as desired. The iconic Puerta del Sol is the giant crossroads of the city and a must-see attraction at any time of the day. The nearby Plaza Mayor, completely enclosed by historic red buildings, is an ideal place to grab a bite to eat outside, amidst scores of tables and people out for a stroll. Plaza Isabel II (also known as “Opera”) is smaller and a good meeting spot, and the stately Plaza del Oriente is the front yard of the Royal Palace. Centro can be touristy (pickpockets are unfortuately not unheard-of here), crowded, and sometimes gimmicky, but it is also the place to experience classic Madrid.
