FAQ about Madrid venues and events
Not really. Madrid is a pretty large city and you’ll find that most people, especially those in the hospitality industry can speak at least some level of English. That being said, Spanish is the official language in Madrid and it would be beneficial to know at least a few phrases when you’re interacting with locals.
Madrid is a tourist destination and you’ll find plenty of hotels and guest houses for you to stay during your time in the city. In fact, if you’re planning to stay for a longer duration and would like more space, you can even sub-let an apartment in Madrid for a few months. If you’re only in town for a short while, you can also check out the best luxury hotels in Madrid.
The city offers a well-connected and efficient public transportation system, making it easy for both residents and visitors to get around. You can commute within the city using The Madrid Metro, public buses, suburban trains (Cercanías), and taxis, or you can simply bike or walk to your destination.
Yes, Uber does work in Madrid. You can also hail a taxi on-demand using these local alternative apps: Cabify, MyTaxi, Bolt, and Kapten.
The best way to pay for services is typically with a credit or debit card. The city is well-equipped with card payment facilities, and most businesses, including restaurants, hotels, shops, and taxis, accept card payments. Visa and Mastercard are widely accepted, and many places also accept American Express and other major card networks.
However, it is a good idea to carry some cash for smaller purchases. Digital payment methods such as Google Pay and Apple Pay are becoming more popular in Madrid but not all establishments accept them, so don’t rely on digital payment methods as your only payment type.
This honestly depends on the venue, but as a general rule, most venues do not refund your booking amount if you cancel within 48 hours of your event date. For cancellations made before 48 hours of the event, there’s often a small deduction based on how close to the event date you’re cancelling.
To secure the best event space and ensure everything goes smoothly, it's advisable to make bookings for your event space in Madrid as early as possible. The ideal timeframe to start the booking process can vary depending on the size and type of event you're planning.
For large-scale events, we advise you to make your booking at least 6-12 months in advance, while mid-sized events require a time frame of 3-6 months, and small gatherings can book their event venue about 3 months in advance.
