Madrid is a city that offers many opportunities when it comes to finding accommodation that could suit any budget. It has a huge amount of hotel accommodation, one of the largest in Europe. In addition, it is a relatively inexpensive city. If you are looking for an area to book a hotel we recommend you the “Barrio de las letras” – the literary quarter – It is a cultural center, full of pedestrianized streets, boutique stores of different types and leisure areas. Plaza Santa Ana is the hub of the Barrio de Las Letras, a great spot to enjoy the real Madrid. It is just off the tourist circuit while still being smack dab in the center of the city. There are plenty of hotels to choose from as well as quite a few guest apartments and hostales.
