Hipmunk's most popular hotels in Lavapiés
Once the Jewish quarter of Madrid before the expulsion in 1492, Lavapiés is rich in history and remains one of Madrid's most culturally diverse areas. Branching out from neighboring La Latina, Lavapiés has become the ultimate student and hippie hangout with its range of cheap bars, cool ethnic restaurants and active street life. In the 1990s the area was neglected, but now it's become a cultural hub with an international mix of local residents, excellent theater, underground creative spaces and open art centers.

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.
