Dish Our Town’s short travel guide for Madrid, Spain.
We flew AirFrance from NYC to Madrid with a stopover in Paris for about $800 round trip in 2011.
In 2011, We stayed in a suite Hotel Room Mate Alicia, which was awesome. We highly recommend staying there because it’s so convenient. We walked everywhere from our hotel and at night, we were right in the middle of all the action. As mentioned by Andrew, there is a playground right in the middle of the plaza so the kids can play while we ordered up drinks and watched them, while socializing with some other tourists and locals. There were kids for Bailey to play with even way past midnight, she absolutely loved it and so did we!
In 2003 we stayed at the Intercontinental in Madrid. This was before Bailey was born. We liked the actual hotel but it was in an inconvenient location. However, if you like the big, old-world style hotels, then this is for you.

Mercado de San Miguel – We absolutely loved this mercado, we went several times and is walking distance from the hotel Room Mate Alicia. We ate loads of Jamon Iberico, cheese, wines of all sorts, ice cream and this is where we had our first ever Percebes, which we loved. This market is great for the whole family, everybody will be happy.
