Hipmunk's most popular hotels in Opera
This upscale city center has regal charm as the official home to the Spanish royal family, with the royal palace, Teatro Real and the Royal Opera House. The Plaza Oriente features sculpted gardens dotted with open-air bistros, where you can dine in old-world style before your opera or stroll through the Sabatini gardens. The Almudena Cathedral is just opposite the Royal Palace, with its wide-open interior space and modern splendors.

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.
