overnight in Madrid- need hotel near great tapas!

We are overnighting in Madrid, having never been before. Will arrive around 7pm and need to leave for the airport at 8 the next morning. All we can do, really, is walk around and enjoy tapas for our single night in Madrid. Our family has three adults and one 13 year old. We would like a very nice hotel (but not The Ritz!!) in a lively but not crazy neighborhood. In Parisian terms, more St. Germain des Pres than Latin Quarter. Our travel date is a Saturday in early April. Help!!!

Hostal Macarena was $125 euros a night. The location was next to the Plaza Mayor and a stonesthrow from Cava Baja which is one of the classic tapas streets, be sure to read Maribelsguides on that topic. If you want something more luxurious I would think anything close to Plaza Mayor and Cava Baja would be a great night in Old Madrid. Be sure to check out Casa Lucas on that street.

I just sent a reply to someone else looking for hotel, can recommend Vincci Capitol at Gran Via, nice 4 star, very close to the Puerta del Sol and Plaza Santa Ana. Hope you enjoy Madrid!
