my wife finished our 10 day spain trip here for 3 nights, and it was a steal for the price! when we arrived we were offered a street view upgrade for 10 euros a night more, and we were so glad we did that. room was great, extremely clean and bathrooms were beautiful. nicest boutique style hotel I've ever been.there is a cafe across the street where i recommend you go each morning for cafe con leche and breakfast for 20 euros. the hotel staff was extremely nice and helpful w places to see. the hotel is a 15-20 minute stroll to the city center LA PEURTA DEL SOL, which is alive all day and really thrives at midnight to 3 am. you will see prostitutes along a section of the walk, so be aware of that. my wife and i went 3 nights in a row to a salsa, merengue and bachata dance place called EL SON. unbelievable if you like dancing those style. everyone dances w everyone, guys are there to teach you to dance the dances if you don't know them. they will ask your wife to dance, the are ballsy, but they are very respectful, don't be alarmed. there are woman dance teachers there too, that even ask some men to dance. a very fun atmosphere. a few sketchy people, but for the most part, we had such a good time we went back 3 times, which we are against doing when we are on vacation. it was 24 euros for 2 admissions and 2 drinks each. an absolute steal. doesn't get busy tip 12;30-5am. awesome. the other place to go is call KAPITOL across town. its a 5 floor techno place, that is not our thing. 36 euros for 2 amission and a drink. one of the days we went to the museo de prado. nice for 2 hours, go before 6, because its free admission after 6 and is packed. 14 euros per person gets you in. my wife and i also saw a bullfight on sunday night. we went into the fight saying we believe its very cruel and awful but wanted to witness it ourselves to say we did it in our lifetime. lets say we are happy we did it once and will never do it again. if you are faint of heart, don't go. its a great entertaining performance w the matadors and tradition and respectful stuff, but they basically, tire out an animal and then put it out of its misery w a stabbing quick death after 15 minutes of being mocked. with that ending depressing story, all in all, it was a great trip to madrid and a great hotel.
