Review Text

  • By Carlos Vazquez Quintana on 7 July 2012

    Dorling Kindersley books have specialized in book illustrations together with understandable text. Perhaps maps aren't his speciality, but this book it's good enough.This said, it's difficult for me to evaluate, as I was born in Madrid many years ago and I have not only lived and driven, but most of all, I have walked many times the traditional city. I don't pretend to know the last industrial polygon.And so, for the foreigner or tourist, I must say Madrid it's absolutely not a belle, monumental not by far an organized, well urbanized capital. If you are from out of Europe, you profit much more in seeing Paris, London, Rome, Venice, Berlin, Vienna or Milan or even Prague. These are much more elegant capitals. There are much more solid historic buildings and excepting Rome, a better organization. Madrid is a capital built by rich people from Andalucia and Extremadura to compete with Barcelona, I think a city a little more urbanized and nice-looking, with sea.Yes, in Madrid there are the Prado Museum with invaluable treasures, but high level art I think it's for specialists, not for tourists. The madrileños rarely go to El Prado as Parisians rarely go to Louvre. You can try of course, the enormous queues. There are also much other museums of art or not, and much, practically unknown.Madrid I think it's only half the size of London or Moscow. The own Prado Museum is a building not very big for the content. The most rational and efficient thing done in Madrid is his "Metro", this is the underground, surely one of the best and biggest in the world today. Surface transport as buses mostly embarrass and collapse the traffic. Taxis are for that, logically slow as expensive as in another capital, at less until 10 p.m.Madrid isn't specially dangerous, but in the traditional centre you rarely see madrileños, but emigrants from Spanish America and Africa. Traditional bars and restaurants as these from the Plaza Mayor, you must be very careful with your money and papers. Violent crime is relatively rare but small robberies are frequent . Spanish food you can taste or not, but I think Madrid isn't a good city to try foreign or exotic cuisine. Japanese, Chinese, Greek and so on are relatively recent businesses.In general Madrid is for that at first time, I think a little defrauding capital to visit. Only if you live a time and you begin to know, this city has one well worth value: in Madrid nobody is a stranger. In many cities of the world you can live for decades and feel a foreigner forever. That doesn't happen in Madrid.

    Don't buy this book. We discovered that important information was wrong... including opening hours of museums etc. The maps are also really unhelpful. Several of the places that the book recommends are not marked on the map/s and there is no indication of how to get there. The layout is also quite irritating, with items continually repeated.This is the worst guide book I have ever purchased!

    I completely agree with the review left below, if only I had read it before I purchased this book.The information contained in the book was often wrong, bars & restaurants mentioned in the book could not be found, the scales and layout of the maps provided with the books were misleading and confusing at best!It was really vague and left me frustrated at several points during my trip.They also did not have a top ten flamenco bar/show either which meant that I missed out on this during my visit.I will never buy a guide book by these authors or in the top ten style again!
