Where to stay

The Room Mate Oscar Hotel is very centrally placed, ideal for a city break in Madrid, especially one which includes a lot of walking and sightseeing. Located close to the San Anton Market, this is a modern hotel, with thankfully free wifi access to stay connected.

Equally central, the Petit Palace Santa Barbara Hotel is a good choice, offering a more homely feel, with white-washed buildings. This refurbished boutique hotel is located close to Real Madrid's home ground, Santiago Bernabeu, and around only 20 minutes from the airport.

Both hotels offer nearby public transport links to help you get around the city more easily.

Things to do

March means a fleeting spring season in Madrid, which means it's still time to get out and explore everything this vibrant capital city has to offer. Of course, we know there are countless museums in this classical city, and if you want to avoid the crowds of the Art Triangle, why not head to some of the smaller, lesser known museums? These might be less on the radar, but they still pack a punch.

The National Archaeological Museum is a must visit for anyone into buildings and style, as well as the Matadero Madrid, with a very unusual and opulent exterior building. The Naval Museum is a must do for those into Spain's sea-faring history of years gone by, and there are countless other small museums and galleries aside from these – it all depends on your particular interests.

If you get a little tired of museums and culture, and you're seeking fun and laughs, then there are plenty of smile-inducing activities you can try in the heart of the city. Fox in a Box by Room Escape is something a little different, and is a great activity for older kids, and obviously big kids alike! You basically play a themed game, where you need to escape from the room within 60 minutes, solving puzzles and finding clues to achieve your aim. Similarly, BrainBreak Madrid is another escape game to spend an hour on, before heading back out into the cultural heart of Madrid, or perhaps a couple of hours in Casino Gran Via, attempting to win a few Euros to spend on your evening's entertainment.

San Anton Market should be a stop off too, where you can sample a few different types of tapas you might not have thought of before, before purchasing any that take your fancy.

Where to eat & drink

Dining in Madrid is as varied as the city itself, and when it comes to choosing where to eat of an evening, you have choices galore. Some nights you might want something glamourous and gourmet, and another night you might like to eat on the go. If you are going down the gourmet route then certainly head to El Club Allard. Every dish served here is a work of art, with bursting, strong yet subtle flavours. The menu is large and varied, described as 'fusion' food, however there is a wide range of seafood and traditional dishes to try.

Alternatively, head out of the city centre a little to Lelise, a very popular choice amongst locals and visitors alike. It's advisable to book your table ahead of time, especially if you're travelling a little out of the centre to reach it. This restaurant serves mainly Mediterranean and Spanish food, with a wide range of authentic choices.

If you're craving pasta however, then you can't beat Pasta Mito. Not simply a pasta bar, this laid-back restaurant serves dishes with strong and bursting flavours, such as pumpkin pasta, for something a little different. Many people who visit here often return time and time again, which is always a stamp of approval.
