As most people already know, Madrid is a city with a rich cultural offering. Every now and then, whenever I have to change flights in the city, I choose to spend the night at my favourite hotel in the capital, the Only You Hotel & Lounge.

When people ask me for advice about what to do and where to go, I like to recommend them to visit places that are not too touristy in order to avoid unnecessary crowds.

San Miguel Market

The environment in the market is ideal to grab a quick meal or to have a few drinks with friends. Inside the market, there’s a huge range of different foods to choose from.

It’s a cultural centre that hosts all kinds of shows, so there’s always something interesting going on – from contemporary art, to movies and plays. There’s also a terrace with a small coffee shop.


Azotea del Círculo de Bellas Artes

This is the place to be if you want to enjoy the best views in the city. Its privileged location in the Paseo del Prado and its unique architecture make the Azotea del Círculo de Bellas Artes one of the most unique buildings in Madrid.


 Templo de Debod

The park, which is quite close to the Plaza de España, was chosen to preserve the ruins of an ancient Rome temple, which were found in the Nile River. It’s also got an amazing views, which include the Palacio Real.
