First day in Madrid ideas

Jump to last reply

We will be arriving in Madrid around 9:30 am on a Wednesday, after flying through the night from NY. I'm assuming by the time we get our luggage, etc and get to our hotel it will be noon-ish (?) and possibly even too early to check into Palacio San Martin.

I haven't really looked on a map yet but I was wondering where we could spend a bit of time, near the hotel to begin our visit to Spain. It's our first visit!

Perhaps after we check in and refresh we could use a great place near the hotel for our first dinner. It doesn't have to be fancy just would prefer to stay away from tourist traps!

Any helpful hints, advice, suggestions are welcome!
