I lived in Salamanca for 2 years and it was an amazing experience. They have all the good stores near by, great restaurants and also you can do almost everything bare foot.

If you yearn for some Versace, Gucci or Bulgari then head to the Salamanca district. This is the Bond Street or Fifth Avenue of Madrid but a bit quieter and even slightly soulless. However, we found it a good bolt hole away from the tourist traps.

the neighbourhood where you can find out all luxury shops (Vuitton, chanel, ect....) If you have a free moment, go there but if you count your time in Madrid, there are better places to discover before this area.

One of the most beautiful neighborhoods in Madrid. A nice place to walk around and get a meal. There're bunch of stores selling high end items. The neighborhood is worth visiting.

Nice small boutiques and cafes around. If you want to get away from the Latina part of Madrid, this is the option

This area is definitely the barrio to stay in since it is close to all the public transportation, places to visit and great restaurants. I'll definitely go back to this neighborhood.

Staying in Barrio de Salamanca

Neighbourhood Profile
Barrio de Salamanca
Broad, tree-lined avenues with pretty streetlights frame the neighbourhood of Barrio Salamanca. With beautiful condominium buildings that make up most blocks in this area, this part of town is refined and quiet. It is also host to a few of the city's large shopping avenues, including Calle Serrano and Calle Jose Ortega y Gasset. A walk down these streets will reveal upscale chains, small boutiques, and plenty of opportunities for shopping or checking out the stylish displays. The locals here are polished and fashionable, the atmosphere is leisurely, and the lush Retiro Park on the southern border is yet another opportunity to enjoy the outdoors. A stroll through Barrio Salamanca is all about admiring the beautiful architecture, window-shopping, and people-watching in this upper-crust corner of Madrid.
