If you are thinking of joining the tourists in the Spanish capital, then today’s article is of special interest to you.

That way you can choose which one best suits you, you can even book several of them if you are travelling with family or friends but want a place to escape your in-laws or that couple who don’t stop telling stories after a few gin and tonics.

In Chamberí there are a lot of cultural activities and many different types of mansions and historic buildings, nerromantic, modernist, gothic and neomudejar…
