Finding Accommodation In Spain's Capital City

May 7, 2008
There are also a number of different types of holiday accommodation options so visitors to the city will have to choose according to what suits their budget, their style and their tourism plans.

Hotels in Madrid are rated by a star system from one to five stars. The quality of the hotel and the amenities that it offers improve the more stars it has so that if you stay in a five star hotel, you can expect some form of luxury accommodation.

Aparthotels are a relatively recent addition to the holiday accommodation scene in Madrid. They are essentially an apartment that is found within a hotel complex. As they are an apartment, they offer more space, privacy and freedom, but also offer some of the amenities that you can expect from a hotel, such as wake-up calls, breakfast in your room and reception and laundry services. They are an especially good choice for families. Aparthotels are rated by a key system from one to three keys and they work out relatively cheaper than hotels of the same rating.

Rented apartments are also available in Madrid and they are an excellent choice for those who want privacy and space. These are self-catered accommodation options which give you privacy, as well as the chance to get the feel of really living in the city. They are an especially good choice for those people who are coming to Madrid for mid- to long term visits.

If you are a backpacker or you are traveling on a tight budget, you should consider staying in a youth hostel. It is worthwhile to choose a youth hostel that is registered with the International Youth Hostel Federation (IYHF) as this will mean that they have agreed to abide by a certain level of standards.

At a youth hostel under the IYHF, you can expect to find clean linen, security and a general level of cleanliness and hygiene. Other hostels generally also abide by these levels and standards, but it is not guaranteed.

There are many different areas to stay in while you are in Madrid. Once you have decided what sort of holiday accommodation you'd like to stay in, you have to decide where you would like to stay. The center of Madrid is an ideal location if you plan to visit the attractions that the city has to offer.

Gran Via Road is very convenient and central, but is also extremely busy and noisy. Paseo del Prada and its surrounding streets are also central and you will find them to be quieter. Another prime central location is Las Huertas. It boasts some modern classy hotels in an area full of old, interesting buildings. It also has a lively night life for those who would like to see the town at night.

Atocha, behind the station has the cheapest accommodation options that are available in Madrid. It is not the most pleasant area at night, but is fine for those on a budget who will not be spending too much time in their hotel rooms.
