    • Best District to stay in Madrid and best areas for eating n drinking on a budget?

      Couple travelling to Madrid in early November, and would like to know what area is best to base ourselves that is not of the beaten track so we can enjoy what the city has to offer. We do enjoy the indie,goth,punk type music bar scene vibe. Areas that are not too expensive. Cheapest areas to drink an eat would be a bonus also. We will be attending a gig whie we are there in Joy eslava, any reviews also on this place as I hear it can be expensive? Thanks

      Question about bus stops near San Lorenzo de El Escorial...

      by Drugness Online Now Mar 2, 2009 at 10:52 AM

      Hello everyone
      I've been doing some research on public transport in and around San Lorenzo de El Escorial and i'm looking at this bus stop called 'Cruce Cuelgamuros' which is serviced by Bus 664 from Madrid. Now i see that Bus 660 from Plaza de Gracia in San Lorenzo de El Escorial goes to bus stop 'Valle de los caidos o Cruce Cuelgamuros'.
      Can i assume correctly that these bus stops are one and the same?
      That being about 4 km walk from the Valley of the Fallen?
      Is this where the entrance gate is located?
      Thanks everyone

      A good place to stay in San Lorenzo?

      by jean_valjean Online Now Sep 5, 2006 at 7:18 AM

      I am looking for informaiton on a good place to stay for a few days in San Lorenzo de El Escorial. I hope to make it a home base to visit the El Escorial, Avila, Segovia, and La Granha. Most web posting give little information and what I have seen it was not good. We prefer small family run hotels to large tourist hotels. I found a small place in San Lorenzo "Posada Don Jaime" does anyone know this hotel? Has anyone stayed there and is it a practical base for my plans?
