For the obligatory chocolate and churros

We went here our first morning in Madrid, just to try the traditional chocolate and churros. The cafe felt like a chain restaurant but in a positive manner. Service was good, food an drink were good---everything was predictable but this is not a small charming cafe. It is easy to find just off... read more

We had some churros with a selection of 4 chocolate sauces and we were not disappointed. So yum! White chocolate was a little piece of heaven!

I was in 4 chocolaterias in the center of Madrid. Here is the best chocolate. Black and strong not so sweet as in San Gines.The churros are definitely hand made stile.More soft than usual.

We had an extra day in Madrid thanks to the French air traffic control strike. Came across Valor and just had to stop for chocolate and churros. The waitress was very friendly and helped me with my terrible Spanish pronunciation. The churros were lovely and the chocolate was perfect for dipping. Me and my husband had coffee which was really... More

I surprisingly bad coffee, which is hard to find these days with a tiramisu matching the bad expirience. Bottled water was OK.

It was a good experience for me and my kids, as we sat outside, enjoying the afternoon, with cups of hot chocolate milk and chocolate a la taza con churros "Valor". To be honest the churros was a bit too greasy for me, while the chocolate (sauce?) was good, not too sweet and a bit on the lighter side (I... More

You can't go to Madrid and not sit down for chocolate and churros at Valor, it is very good and not expensive at all.

Arrived 4 of us sat outside. Fifth popped to the loo. 2 were a minute or two behind. Moved a couple of chairs. A waiter immediately grabbed a chair from my partner who explained we would be 7. I was with 6 Spanish people. "I can only see 4. You can't move them until the others are here". The outside... More

Staying in Centro

Neighborhood Profile
Centro
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.
