Also known as Barrio de las Letras, Huertas was once home to prominent literary figures, Miguel de Cervantes and Lope de Vega among them. The neighbourhood is committed to celebrating its rich heritage: Calle Huertas itself is inlaid with quotes from celebrated authors, street names pay homage to them, and second-hand bookshops pervade. Huertas receives a fair amount of spillover from the center — side streets around Plaza Santa Ana take on a foreign party atmosphere at night, and you always see young backpackers navigating the streets — but as you descend into the neighbourhood, everything becomes a little more cramped and slightly less refined, and takes on more of an underground feel. Live music is at the heart of Huertas: by night, its subdued bars are ideal for meeting friends, sipping cocktails, and chatting quietly while enjoying jazz or singer-songwriter performances.
How the other half lived a couple of centuries ago. Fascinating tour of this intimate museum, home of Lope de Vega. A law that influenced the style of architecture billeted officers with families in Madrid for life if they had a top floor. Those with the space had a lodger. Those who managed to disguise the fact from the street...
It is very hard to tell where one plaza leaves off and another one starts. As we were not looking for a meal, we did not pay special attention to restaurants. It looked an awful lot like other plazas we passed through.
Truly a find in a Madrid neighborhood. It is small and cozy with very friendly and helpful staff. The desserts were the best.
We had planned to return, but out visit was cut short and we had to return to the USA. WE WILL BE BACK!

"Best restaurant we found in Madrid. Absolutely top-notch!"
reviewed 13 April 2020 by berkeleylizann
The Vinoteca Moratin was the best restaurant we ate at over a 6 day period in Madrid. It was quite close to the Prado Recommended by our 5 star hote l(Gran Hotel Ingles) which was not far away. Small seating area so you would definitely need a reservation in advance, as we saw many people turned away while we were...
I arrived very early in the morning after a long flight at the hotel (Urban) and upon checking in enquired about reservation at their Michelin starred restaurant Cebo. The only available slot was for lunch that very day, and I booked. After a short rest and a change I went down to eat. And what a great start to a...
Excellent stay and location. Price is worth. Hotel with amazing staff with well English spoke.
Nier by great restaurants also. Food served at breakfast is good. Recommended for who wants to stay at not expensive but elegant hotel
Enjoyed a 3 night stay at this hotel. The room was spacious, bed was super comfortable, and the bathroom was HUGE. The shower had double showerheads, and there were tons of counter space. The hotel decor is stylish and modern. Loved the candy jar in the reception area! Hotel staff were friendly, but their striped uniforms were a little tacky....

We have stayed in this hotel, because it was a great value and location. I can imagine, the rooms are not everyone's taste, but the rooms are clean and spacious. Well maintained. Beds although had their best time.
The pool itself is tiny and the rooftop rather busy.
Although this is a gay hotel, lot of straight couples around, so...
