I'd tried to get as much as I could out of my day in Madrid, my friend Georgie volunteered to take me around and we met at the Cibeles Palace at 1 PM, the Mirador Tower was closed at this time, but it opened at 4:30 PM. so we went to the old section, el Madrid de los Austria, or Madrid de los Felipes, the Habsburg monarchy of the 15 and 16 hundreds …

... and I was so awkwardly unprepared for the whole kiss on each check thing and kept going the wrong way. We walked up the stairs to our house which is dark but beautiful. As soon as I put my bags down we went to lunch. We had pumpkin soup, tuna salad, ham (dried) and tomato on fancy bread and gosh it tasted good! Even the tuna I didn't mind all that much. Typical me though doesn't have a massive appetite so Amparo Snr got really concerned.

After lunch, ...

... good place. With that in mind, Bri & I took the executive decision to book it for the Saturday night of gay pride, where we would intend to watch the parade and celebrate in Madrid's gay district Chueca...this was not the case. After meeting at the Puerta del Sol, the five of us checked into our room (which we shared with 9 others) and then headed out for tapas and vino. However I must point out that when we checked in the baby of the group, 18 year old Rosie failed to bring her ...

    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.
