      I've stayed in this hotel at least 5 times and it has always been a great experience. Except for this time. I don't know what changed, but the service was terrible.

      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.

I treated him to a couple glasses of red wine for having let me relive my past in Madrid over 50 years ago.  No pictures allowed at the Prado Museum.                  . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .<br style="font-size: 12.8000001907349px; line-height: ...

      Madrid Day 2

      ... Madrid is an amazing city, but then again, coming from NZ, any city in Europe would be 'amazing'. The architecture and history that surrounds the place is mind blowing. And yet, it's such a modern city as well, with all the mod-cons you can imagine.

      We once again used the hop-on hop-off bus to get around but, admittedly, it wasn't so enjoyable today because the heavy traffic made for a start-stop experience while the maniacal ...

      ... about the monarchy in Spain. With the exception of one, the general consensus seemed to be for the removal of the monarchy in Spain. Many said the monarchs are too corrupt to properly run the country, and that a monarchy is an outdated system.

      This negative public opinion has much to do with the media’s portrayal of the monarchy. In 2007, satirical magazine El Jueves published a cartoon mocking his son Felipe, now the new king. The magazine was then impounded for ...

      ... Turns out there are still "guards" to keep people from doing certain things, but they were fairly unobtrusive and you can't really see them in my photos for the most part.

      I ended up having great weather on Sunday while at the Alhambra - brilliant blue skies, got some neat views with the sun rising while in the early part of the morning at the Alhambra. I think I got a little sunburned too before I put on sunscreen around 10 am, but it was ...

      ... t really look down on the surroundings as much as across the top of them. We don't stay long and begin our trek across the city to the Cathedral and Royal Palace. Again we take a gentle pace keeping to the shade. The heat is very draining and I'm starting to get concerned about how hot it will be on the Camino. The Cathedral is very large with a huge arched ceiling, many stained glass windows, and frescos painted on the ceilings. The church is very impressive ...
