Overall Guide: Eat like a madrileño - it is useful to eat when the madrileños eat. The variety of restaurants is best when the locals enjoy their meals - that is at around 2-3 pm for lunch and at the earliest at 9 pm for dinner. Eat tapas - tapas are available everywhere and are plentiful and varied. These you can get outside of mealtimes as well. Go see flamenco. Madrid is the flamenco capitol. It is well worth going to see a tablao! Enjoy yourself and just sit around and enjoy the vibe of the city!

Overall Guide: It's beautiful, cheap, charming, dynamic, cheerful, I recommend it for a weekend, the transport is very good, you get great food at reasonable prices, the people are friendly and helpful. I recommend trying the ham. If you just want a quick bite you can go to the chain 'montadidos 100 cerveceria', they make excellent sandwiches and the service is very friendly.

Overall Guide:  In addition to being the capital of Spain, Madrid is also the home of the Spanish Royal Family and a major commercial hub of the region. It is also a tourist hotspot because of the variety of cultural and artistic activity and its lively nightlife.
When in Madrid, do visit the Corral de la Moreria to experience the best of Flamenco dancing. Sports fans should try to catch a football match at the Vicente Calderón stadium. A visit to the Gran Vía is a must for those who wish to experience Madrid’s famed nightlife.  
The city is also home to many ... More fine museums and monuments including the Museo del Prado, Reina Sofía National Museum and Art Centre, Palacio Real, Catedral de la Almudena, Museum of the City and Debod Temple.
Madrid also hosts many elaborate festivals; the month-long Fiestas de San Isidro is the most fascinating and lively of these festivals. It is held every year in the month of May.

Overall Guide: Lovely cultural city. Shame about all the strikes. Not really helping their economy. Or sick people. Won't really encourage tourist industry.

Overall Guide: Climbing on the roof terrace of the tower of Madrid is an experience not to be missed. The urban scene is really amazing. Madrid is a city that can easily be explored on foot and this is the best way to live it fully.

Overall Guide: It's a cosmopolitan city full of tourist and cultural attractions. Don't miss the local restaurants where you can enjoy tapas. A tour of the museums (the Prado in the head, the Parque del Buen Retiro, the many churches). The connections between the city and the airport are very efficient and cheap. What about the people? Friendly and always ready to give advice on restaurants and sights to see.

Overall Guide: Relaxed and green (besides the city traffic) and improving in leaps and bound on each return. It also has a vibe and a gogo attitude but only at night, late...well all night.
