Madrid is one of my favorite cities in the world, so here is a grief guide to some of my favorite restaurants, hotels, museums and areas to walk around and just enjoy the view.
- Urso: 5-star boutique hotel located in the up-and-coming area of Justicia. My favorite.
- Only You: trendy but timeless boutique hotel, with a mediterranean feel and impeccable service.
- Four Seasons: the first Four Seasons in Spain has recently opened with vibrant modern energy. It is an impeccable restoration of a collection of seven historical buildings in the center of the capital.
- Bless Hotel: boutique hotel in the heart of Salamanca neighborhood, where modernity meets sophistication.
What to do:
- Walk around the Justicia neighborhood - up and coming, cool antique stores and beautiful buildings.
- A visit to the Prado Museum is mandatory.
- Other museums to visit: Thyssen Museum, Fundación Mapfre, Sorolla Museum.
- Walk around the Salamanca neighborhood where the most exclusive stores and restaurants are located, and finish the day visiting the Retiro Park and its Glass Palace.
- Book a class at Tracy Anderson's studio and have breakfast at Roots (located in the same building) - they make the most delicious smoothies & smoothie bowls.
- On Sundays you cannot miss out on the Rastro flea market where you will find antique treasures.
- Bel Mondo: the most spectacular and authentic trattoria in Madrid.
- Charrúa: favorite steakhouse with a very intimate ambiance.
- Cannibal Raw Bar: speakeasy vibes, good drinks and a great menu.
- Dani Brasserie: brasserie at the rooftop of the Four Seasons by three-michelin star chef Dani García.
- Floren Domezain: elevated farm-to-table. The tomato salad & artichokes were my favorite.
- Quintin: a classic that never gets old. Local cuisine.
- Kabuki: Japanese-mediterranean fusion.
- Roots: if you are craving a healthy breakfast, here you will find the best smoothies and avocado toasts.
