Dear colleagues,

I am trying to find an hotel to stay in Madrid from the 10-12th September as I am going to a concert in La Riviera.

I have already been searching, but I only find hotels about 5 km far from La riviera and 4-5 stars (some in Alcobendas). I think it will be very expensive and far from the place of the concert.

So, I am asking for your help: do you know any hotel the closest possible from La Riviera? 3-4 stars.

Answers in Spanish are welcome. It was easier for me to write in English.

Thank you in advance for any tips.

It's 3-star, near La Riviera and the neighborhood is quite interesting.

Good luck!

Is it nearer than Alcobendas or Tres Cantos? Aug 23, 2010

Thank you Oscar.

The nearest hotels I've found was in Alcobendas or 3 Cantos. Is this one nearer La Riviera?

I've checked in the map and it seems that La Riviera is outside Madrid, is it right?

Any hotel near the Palacio Real Aug 23, 2010

La Riviera is just to the East of the "Puente de Segovia", which is just some 500 m away from the Palacio Real, I think. Not much more. So any hotel near the Palacio Real or the Teatro Real will do nicely. You can just walk down the calle Segovia and get there in a moment.

Oscar's suggestion is a good one I think.

To get to the La Riviera you can also take Line 6 to Puerta del Ángel, cross the bridge on foot and be in La Riviera in a couple of minutes. Line 6 connects to the North of the city. You could for instance look for a hotel in streets Alberto Aguilera or Paseo de la Princesa, not too far from the metro station named "Argüelles". That links to Puerta del Ángel directly.

Of course there is no need to go to Alcobendas at all! Alcobendas is some 20 km away from the center! I would suggest you use Google Maps to look for hotels in the area. Quite simple. Go to maps.google.com; look for "Puente de Segovia Madrid" (La Riviera is just on the Eastern side of the bridge, by the river); zoom out and do a search for "Hotel" on the Eastern side of the river. You can see the Palacio Real and the Campo del Moro just NE of the La Riviera.

Now, let's get this straight. You mean that you have to go here: www.salariviera.com, right?

"Calle La Riviera" Aug 23, 2010

Hm... I think you probably looked for La Riviera and got to "Calle La Riviera" somehow. But that street it just about 10 km away from the Sala La Riviera!

Sala la Riviera, right Aug 23, 2010

I opened google maps from the Riviera site itself. But I probably messed everything up.
