Stay in our Holiday Inn® hotels in Madrid and uncover the charm and 21st-century bustle of the Spanish capital. In the Old City, get lost in a maze of streets that lead past the world’s greatest art museums, a 16th-century monastery and royal courtyards.
Our hotels in Madrid make it easy to explore Madrid’s top attractions. Hop aboard the Madrid Metro and in no time you’ll be zipping underground to the historic center, within easy walking distance of Spain’s most impressive artistic treasures. Begin with the Prado Museum, room after room of priceless paintings by masters like Goya, Velazquez and El Greco. Move on to the glittering Throne and Porcelain Rooms of the Royal Palace. Our Madrid hotels sit near the peaceful surrounds of the Monastery de las Descalzas Reales, since 1559 a place of spiritual retreat and a veritable storehouse of artistic and religious objects.
It’s a quick Metro ride from our Madrid hotels to the Plaza Mayor in the heart of the Old City. Settle in with a glass of ruby-red Spanish wine and admire the plaza’s 17th-century balconies and towers. Sort through centuries-old adventure books, art prints and costume jewelry among the stalls of the surrounding shopping arcades, or visit on Sunday when the historic coin and stamp market is open. Good-value Spanish tapas including chorizo sausage and seasoned shrimp is served up in Madrid’s tascas (local taverns). Accompany your meal with a glass of hard cider or cerveza negra (black beer).
Book a room in our Madrid Holiday Inn hotels for May’s Fiestas de San Isidro, when the city’s most distinguished matadors perform at Las Ventas stadium. At Christmas, Madrid’s Plaza de la Cibeles celebrates the season with a rainbow of fireworks in the night sky.
