Multi-story residential buildings decorated with ornate balconies line the traditional, quiet, and pretty streets of Chamberí. Humble storefronts and neighbourhood taverns are scattered across the lower levels down every block, and here and there, there's a cluster of tables on the sidewalk. It isn't ever crowded, but people are always out, poking into the tiny bakeries, hardware stores, and tobacco shops, or ducking into a bright, unadorned cerveceria to have a coffee or beer by the bar, flip through the paper, and check the sports score. The round Plaza Olavide, where the fairly regular network of streets breaks form, is among the most green and lively spots. Restaurants line its circumference and sought-after outdoor tables fill the center of the plaza, where people relax to the sounds of kids playing and street musicians' tunes.
"A gem, particularly if you have limited time. Visit for an hour, or take three."

This Private-Home-turned Museum is a delightful showcase for the work of Sorolla, whose work sits stylistically alongside Whistler or Sargeant. You’ll see top exemplary works alongside original furnishings and a studio he worked in. A small garden welcomes you - a wonderful respite when touring many attractions. Great weather makes for an outstanding visit. I skipped the audio tour and...
"Interesting Free Tour of Restored but Unused Metro Station"
reviewed 12 May 2018 by Travelled_AS
Came across this by accident when doing a search for unusual things to do in Madrid. Anden O (or Platform 0) is actually the old Chamberi Metro station built in early 1900's but was disused from 1966 until recently. It has been restored to its original beauty with advertisements of the day and white tiles and quaint ticket booth etc...
This street is full of shops and completely pedestrianised.
Shops open till late everyday
So many shops.
You have what must be the liveliest area of this supremely fun city Malasaña on one side of the street and Chueca on the other.
These two areas must have more bars , restaurants and clubs than most countries.
Do not miss.
I must have gone pas this several times and missed it. It was only on the tour bus when it was pointed out to me and it really is distinctive and bought us a laugh as it so unusual and quirky.
Fernando Botero is famous for sculpting larger women.

If you love chips, meat and sauce you have to go here! It is a way out of the centre (40 min walk) but was worth it. Portions are huge and you can order a combination of toppings- we had chorizo and juicy pork. We did ask if we could have cheese on top as well (loaded fries) but they...
Excellent burgers and chips. The best I’ve had in a long time. The kids loved it so we ate there again after our first meal when we had our holidays in Madrid. The staff are also very nice and spoke English. The prices are reasonable. I will definitely recommend this place
The room was huge and elegant and plus, I had an amazing bath! super big and confortable! The Orfila Hotel is super beautiful and leave you without breath!!!! Super romantic and with a 5 star welcome!! I highly recommended! :)))
We were stuck in finding a room during a very busy week. Oscar, the front desk managernot only got us a room, but helped us enormously in finding space for another night. He went beyond any expectation. Being treated so well, after coming off the Camino was quite wonderful for us. Thank you so much. The Pavillions is our hotel...
"Beautiful Hotel in a Quiet Part of Town, yet Convenient"
reviewed 2 weeks ago by Bernie987
The Santo Mauro is a beautiful old time hotel in a residential area of Madrid. It is not far from buses and metro stops that can take you to most tourist attractions. The staff is very friendly. You can not have a friendlier welcome than from the porter Francisco. The front office staff was always helpful, although one day it...
"Nice rooms and lobby, room service could use help"
reviewed 1 week ago by wandersmuch
Very nice rooms and lobby, was disappointed there wasn't a better room upgrade available for our group of Spire Elites. The breakfast room service was very expensive and I experienced multiple errors during my stay.
Very good value for money. Friendly staff and personell who hellps and supportive. Great location at the heard of Madrid were everything is closed by. The Salamanca destrict is in walking distance with Serrano and Ortega y Gasset best excellent shopping area.
