How did you fall in love with Madrid?

(Note: This post was originally written in June 2011 on my personal website)

Madrid is one of those places that simply doesn’t need much help selling its awesomeness. The city speaks for itself and speaks volumes. Literally. I don’t think there was a quiet hour the entire time we were in Madrid. The city was hustling and bustling at every hour of the day. There’s just so much to do, so much energy and excitement in the air. Madrid makes you feel even more youthful.

We stayed at Quo Puerta Del Sol hotel in Seville 4, a 4 star hotel centrally located at a decent price ($280 for 2 nights). I would highly recommend staying at this hotel because you literally are walking distance from everywhere you want to be in Madrid. Though, just to warn, it can be a bit noisy outside the hotel. But then again, that’s just Madrid… don’t go if you aren’t ready and open for a little hustle and bustle action :)


Madrid is definitely one of my top 5 favorite European cities so far… I greatly enjoyed my time there and can’t wait to be back! : )

Have you been to Madrid? How did you like it?
