A district so cool they made it a verb: #ponzaning

Madrid's most authentic neighbourhood

There is no doubt about it, Chamberí is a truly quintessential, traditional Madrid neighbourhood. It was home to the 19th and 20th century aristocracy, which is gloriously clear from its tall, elegant, eclectic range of buildings, graced in many cases with uniquely charming doorways. It is very central but not crowded, and offers plenty of parks and green spaces, including the beautifully landscaped Plaza de Olavide, Parque Santander and Parque del Oeste, one of Madrid’s green spaces positioned on the border with the Ciudad Universitaria neighbourhood. The cultural offering in the area is also second-to-none; it is home to the Sala Berlanga, a multifunctional space which screens movies and holds exhibitions, concerts and theatre and dance performances, as well as the Canal, Luchana and Abadía theatres, which are among Madrid’s finest. Not to mention all the cinema theatres: Cines Verdi, Conde Duque Verdi Alberto Aguilera, Conde Duque Santa Engracia, and Cine Proyecciones, which is housed in an art deco building dating back to 1932, all located in Calle Fuencarral, which was fittingly once known as “cinema street”. Chamberí has it all: a family feel in the areas nearest the Paseo de la Castellana, and a younger, more studenty vibe around the Calle Princesa, which is close to various university buildings. This diversity is exactly what makes it the perfect place to stay, offering everything you need within arm’s reach: a whole host of services, a spectacular location and an endless range of restaurants and leisure and cultural activities.
