What's the Weather Like in Madrid in May

Temperature

The sun has got its hat on in May, as summer fast approaches and temperatures in Madrid warm up. You can expect an average temperature of 15°C during May, reaching a high of 22°C, and an average low of 8°C during the evening.

Rain and Average Sunshine Hours

Whilst April showed major signs of precipitation, it does slow down a little in May, averaging 40mm throughout the month, over 11 days in total. The major perk however is the sun, with around 10 hours of beautiful sunshine to enjoy per day, giving you freedom to head out and explore not only everything Madrid has to offer, but the surrounding area too.

Madrid Hotels in May

Far Home Hostel

For contemporary and affordable lodging near the heart of the action in the Madrid, choose Far Home Hostel. Located just off the bustling Gran Via street, this friendly and convenient hotel comprises spacious private rooms and suites with TVs, parquet flooring, and desks. Private rooms come with their own en suite bathrooms, while suites add kitchenettes and living areas with pull-out sofas. A complimentary breakfast is served daily.

Hotel Regina

An exceedingly popular mid-range option among travellers in Madrid is the Hotel Regina. Dating back to the early 20th century, this sophisticated hotel features sleek, airy rooms with TVs and room service; upgrade to a suite to make use of the rain showers in the bathrooms. Penthouse suites command stunning views of the city, while there's also an onsite restaurant that has its own terrace and wine cellar. Other facilities include laundry, cafe, business rooms and a free airport shuttle.

Hotel Orfila

Those in search of luxury accommodation during their may visit will be well served by Hotel Orfila. A short walk from the National Archaeological Museum of Spain, this grand hotel is known for its formal period decor and its rooms all feature WiFi, TVs, whirlpool baths and mini-bars; suites come with living areas, balconies and sound systems. A haute cuisine restaurant serves the finest fare in elegant settings, and the hotel is also home to a relaxing garden terrace with a fountain. Room service is available.

Bars and Restaurants

Concepto Bistro

Something of a hidden gem, Concepto Bistro is quietly tucked away in Madrid's Latina neighbourhood and serves delectable Spanish and Argentinian cuisine, with a range of options to cater to all diners. From the prime steaks, to the tapas and empanadas, everything on the menu at this small and friendly restaurant will be to appeal to your taste buds. A nice wine selection accompanies the food on offer.

Mimi's Creperia

Located very near Plaza Mayor, Mimi's Creperia makes an excellent and inexpensive place to stop by during the afternoon or evening for a sweet or savoury snack. Crepes are the mainstay of this eatery and they come in a variety of flavours and editions, while there's also a simple and satisfying selection of other dishes on offer such as sandwiches and omelettes.

Baton Rouge

While cocktail bars are a relatively new concept to the Madrid drinking scene, there are a number of evening hangout spots popping up across the city, of which Baton Rouge is one. Based near the Puerta del Sol in the heart of the city, this friendly and fashionable bar has coveted popularity among the locals thanks to its welcoming interiors and tasty concoctions.

Denay Coffee Bar

Situated down by the Rio of Madrid, Denay Coffee Bar is another excellent establishment that serves both a delicious range of sweet snacks (desserts, ice creams, smoothies and milkshakes) and cocktails for later on in the day. Pretty much everything served here comes highly recommended, and there's a small selection of tapas available to graze on while you sip your drinks.

Things to do in Madrid in May

Sorolla Museum

Honouring one of Spain's most famous impressionists, Joaquin Sorolla, the Sorolla Museum is located inside the painter's family home and is an excellent showcase to his work. While the artist painted in a variety of styles, he was most prominently known for his well-lit beach scenes, which are heavily emphasized in the museum. An excellent addition to some of the other art museums and galleries in Madrid, this is a popular option for art aficionados looking for an alternative to the Golden Art Triangle. Concessions are available to students, under 18s and pensioners.

Platform Zero

One of the quirkier attractions in Madrid, Platform Zero offers a fascinating insight to the subterranean world of the city. Originally a Metro station which was later abandoned, this was recently re-discovered and opened to the public, restoring it to its former glory. The former Chamberi station closed in 1966 and has been completely recreated to its original early 20th century style. Audiovisual displays bring the history of the Metro to life and visitors can stroll down to the platforms while taking in its period features.

Rio

If you need to let off some steam or find somewhere to relax in downtown Madrid, head to the Rio, a sprawling expanse down by the city's river which is home to various monuments and green spaces. Children are well-served by the park's 17 play areas, all catering to different ages and abilities, while the Madrid Matadero houses a range of cultural events throughout the year - check their website to see what's happening during your visit.

Madrid Book Fair

Held annually in the Retiro Park, the Madrid Book Fair is a must-visit for any literature lover and has been a feature of city life for the last 85 years in Madrid (it's been in its current spot for the last 50 of those). You can pick up practically any kind of reading material at this sprawling event and there are regular talks and book signings.
