As long as you can manage your luggage up and down three flights of stairs, then this is a real gem. Beautiful artistically appointed rooms, quiet location right in the middle of a very hip and interesting area with bars, artisans, wine and food, cafes, little designer outlets etc. But be warned, Madrid is rife with pickpockets. Don't leave phones,...

For me this is the only place to stay in Madrid. The welcome is warm; the rooms are charmingly decorated and beds extremely comfortable; breakfast with other interesting guests around a shared table is delicious. The location close to Atocha station, the Prado, Plaza Mayor, the botanic gardens, lots of great restaurants and bars, couldn't be better. Thank you Paola...

Paola, who owns and runs ArtisticBB with her husband, is a true gem and her warm and colorful property is perfectly located for exploring the Le Letras (letters) neighborhood (so many wonderful city squares, shops, restaurants) and easy walking distance to the other fascinating neighborhoods of Madrid! Paola did all the decorating of ArtisticBB herself and the colors are rich,...

It's true what others say about the walls being thin and the stairs being steep. But despite those we still felt Artistic B&B deserved an excellent rating. The rooms are comfortable and care was obviously given to their furnishing and interior design. Sure they were a bit on the small side, but we're starting to learn that that is the...

Based on the reviews, we expected more and honestly were a bit disappointed. THE GOOD: - Paula, the host, is a gem. Knowledgeable and friendly. - The location. It doesn't get much more central. Great for walking throughout central Madrid. The NOT-SO-GOOD: - The rooms are small. It was OK for just 3 nights, but any longer and it would...

Creatively decorated to give the warm atmosphere of being in a local artist friend's home, this was a wonderful base for our stay in Madrid. Paula the host and her assistant Mai are so welcoming and super helpful, making us feel we have friends in Madrid. We stayed in room 2 facing the street and we loved our room: plenty...

I really liked the location of the Artistic B&B, the neighborhood is great, many restaurants and bars but still not too noisy, everything was in walking distance - if you are ok to walk a little bit :-). The B&B is not that easy to find - you need to look for a normal house (number 11) is on it...

We feel very fortunate to have experienced Artistic B&B during our stay in Madrid, and there definitely is an artist in residence by the name of Paola! Her talent is on display everywhere making the atmosphere warm and inviting. This is a delightful, very well run B&B with a great location that let us explore the treasures of this elegant...

Artistic B&B is a terrific spot. We were warmly welcomed by Paula, the owner who helped us plan a compact but comfortable day and a half in Madrid. The place is wonderfully located, 5 minutes walk from the Prada and no more than 15 minute walk from everything in Old Madrid and Bourbon Madrid. Room was small, but adequate and...

Staying in Huertas

Neighbourhood Profile
Also known as Barrio de las Letras, Huertas was once home to prominent literary figures, Miguel de Cervantes and Lope de Vega among them. The neighbourhood is committed to celebrating its rich heritage: Calle Huertas itself is inlaid with quotes from celebrated authors, street names pay homage to them, and second-hand bookshops pervade. Huertas receives a fair amount of spillover from the center — side streets around Plaza Santa Ana take on a foreign party atmosphere at night, and you always see young backpackers navigating the streets — but as you descend into the neighbourhood, everything becomes a little more cramped and slightly less refined, and takes on more of an underground feel. Live music is at the heart of Huertas: by night, its subdued bars are ideal for meeting friends, sipping cocktails, and chatting quietly while enjoying jazz or singer-songwriter performances.
