So after 3 flights, 4 airports, and I saw my bag on the belt at the airport, my trip was officially started. As if the subway system wasn't already complicated enough, the ticket machine was worse. So 3 metro trains later I come up to street level and I'm absolutely disoriented. I had no map (only a google maps one with no street names), no compass, and no map app on my phone because I have no SIM card yet. Let's just say I ...

... highlight of the day was later this evening when we saw the Dali exhibit and the Regina Sofia's Picasso paintings. First we mosied through over a dozen rooms containing over 200 of Dali's works. Mostly paintings but also some sculptures and autobiography movie clips. All of his art was very interesting and super eccentric. His painting abilities were impressive, an especially detail oriented, however it was impossible for both Grant and I to understand any message ...

    An aging older tourism hotel

    This hotel dates back to the 50's, it has been kept up and is very adequate and comfortable, but in need of renovation and upgrade to more modern standards. The lobby/reception id very small, it is cumbersome to get to the elevators and elevators are very small with room for two or three people, even though the sign says four people max. The dining room is elegant and spacious, breakfast buffet is very good, although I found it somewhat expensive at 15€. This is not out of line most business hotels are on this range, still I thought it is expensive.
    The hotel is in a very good location, on Velazquez street, close to many major sites such as Retiro Park, Puerts de Alcala,Cibeles Plaza Colon, the chic Serrano shopping area, Goya shopping area, close to Metro stations and fine restaurants.
    In spite of its aging nature I'd recommended for a reasonable place to stay in Madrid.
