Hi-

I will be visiting Madrid for the first time with my mom for a couple of days in Semana Santa. My mom would like to stay in some place "historic" and more or less central. Any ideas?

WOW!!! A Spaniard going to MADRID for Semana Santa!!! That's a first! hehehe.. wink (just kidding)

Are you looking for a central/historical area of Madrid or are you looking for a central/historical hotel? I mean, are you asking for names of hotels or of zones of Madrid?

Saludos, MadridMan

Hey wait a minute MadridMan,

I´m not Spanish smile I thought that where it said "from" we were supposed to put where we were writing from, not where we were from. I´m from Huntsville, Texas (although sometimes I am told that since Spain used to own Mexico and Mexico used to own Texas I´m really Spanish).

In response to your question MM, I was referring to hotel names. I´m just looking for womething more or less decent (and reasonably priced)that would satisfy my mom´s desire to stay some place "european looking."
