Our hotel manager (Hotel Orfila) recommended Alkalde after we told him that we wanted an authentic Madrid dining experience at a restaurant that locals like. What a wonderful experience! All the food was simply magnificent, well prepared and quite ample in portion. The baked squid...More

Barrio de Salamanca
Broad, tree-lined avenues with pretty streetlights
frame the neighbourhood of Barrio Salamanca. With
beautiful condominium buildings that make up most

quiet. It is also host to a few of the city's large
shopping avenues, including Calle Serrano and Calle

reveal upscale chains, small boutiques, and plenty of
