We enjoyed our stay at the Artistic, it was lovely to chat with both the hosts and other guests at the communal breakfast table. Very central, easy to get to. On the 3rd floor with no lift so you will go home a little fitter. The B&B is down a relatively quiet street in the museum quarter. Eat , drink...

We cannot imagine a more perfect B&B in Madrid. The location is excellent - a great area to walk around (with helpful suggestions from the owners for good choices out of the many possible places to eat) - and only a few minutes walk from the Prado. The owners are really friendly and welcoming. It fully deserves its high rating....

I was lucky enough to spend three nights at Artistic B&B while visiting Madrid with my wife and daughter. Our room was spacious and beautiful and the breakfast delicious, especially the freshly baked breads each morning. The owner, Paola, was wecloming and informative, and quite responsive to email inquiries before our arrival. Conveniently located within walking distance of the Prado...

My boyfriend and I stayed at Artistic for 4 nights right at the beginning of a long trip through Spain and Italy. It was BY FAR the best place we stayed overall. We were looking for welcoming places with helpful staff as it was both our first time in Spain. We got just what we were asking for and more....

What a great place! We arrived at Artistic B&B early after traveling from the US and were greeted by Rodolfo. He gave us a handy map and some good pointers on the "Barrio de las Letras." The restaurant recommendations were perfect and we visited several of them. Another fun stop which he recommended (just around the corner, free and should...

You cannot get a better location or nicer hosts than here! We arrived after long overnight flight and were greeted with coffee and the opportunity to leave our stuff there and go out sightseeing. Both my husband and myself have limited "range" of walking and so a location that is not more than 5-10 minutes from anywhere we wanted to...

After a long delayed flight we were greeted with warmth and hospitality. Everything about Artistic B&B is memorable from the beautiful room that was full of charm and character to the delicious breakfasts made for the guests each morning. It was a very friendly introduction to Spain and allowed us great sleeps in the comfortable beds with no outside noise....

We had a really great time at Artistic B&B in March. Big thanks for Paola and Rodolfo! Thank you again for your warm hospitality! You were very kind and helpful and your B&B is a really cosy place. We liked the style and the colour of the rooms. Greetings from Hungary!

Staying in Huertas

Neighbourhood Profile
Huertas
Also known as Barrio de las Letras, Huertas was once home to prominent literary figures, Miguel de Cervantes and Lope de Vega among them. The neighbourhood is committed to celebrating its rich heritage: Calle Huertas itself is inlaid with quotes from celebrated authors, street names pay homage to them, and second-hand bookshops pervade. Huertas receives a fair amount of spillover from the center — side streets around Plaza Santa Ana take on a foreign party atmosphere at night, and you always see young backpackers navigating the streets — but as you descend into the neighbourhood, everything becomes a little more cramped and slightly less refined, and takes on more of an underground feel. Live music is at the heart of Huertas: by night, its subdued bars are ideal for meeting friends, sipping cocktails, and chatting quietly while enjoying jazz or singer-songwriter performances.
