Hipmunk's most popular hotels in Huertas
Tucked behind the Paseo del Prado is Huertas, nicknamed "Neighborhood of Literature." Great literary figures from Madrid's Golden Age called Huertas home, including playwright Lope de Vega, whose house can still be visited. The neighborhood bears this literary heritage proudly, with its poetry-engraved streets and distinct bohemian flair. Narrow tree-lined Calle de Huertas is famed for its nighttime bar and jazz scene, notably Café Populart, which offers free jazz and blues concerts every night. The Barrio de las Letras is a historic Hemingway hangout: the Cervecería Alemana on Plaza Santa Ana and La Venencia on Calle Echegaray were some of the writer's favorite haunts.

Glamor meets good times in Madrid: downshift from power-lunching in Salamanca to Bohemian tapas bars in Malasaña. Hop museums from Museo del Prado to Thyssen-Bornemisza to Reina Sofia, and then end the day with drinks and live jazz along Calle de Huertas. Shop 1930s art deco Gran Vía and upscale Calle Serrano until you're left with just enough for bargain ethnic eats in Lavapiés and Plaza España.
