Hi-I'll be in Madrid for a few days at the end of August for a meeting. It's out at the IFEMA center, while my hotel is the Hermosa Hermasillo (Hermosilla 23) so I'll be spending a bit of time on the subway... and I need to keep "reasonable" business hours in order to be up and at work by 9 a.m..... so my question is, will I be able to eat at least fairly well in my neighborhood without staying up til 1 a.m.?????
On the day the meeting ends I'm flying to Menorca for a few days before my next meeting (in Barcelona) begins. I'm staying at an agroturismo about 10 km from the main airport (menorcacountryhouse.com). There aren't many recommendations for Menorca on the board-I'd love to hear any if someone can share. I'll have a car.
Finally, I'll fly to Barcelona, where I have a free day before going back to work. My apartment is around the corner from the Ninot market, although the meeting is at the conference center in Diagonal Mar. I know it's a hike by subway, but last time I stayed right out by the conference center and it was awful-so boring-and NO restaurants! Although I could walk to the meeting I ended up subway-ing it anyway, but at the wrong end of the day-enduring the ride after a big dinner and wine.
So is there anything wonderful in the neighborhood of my apartment? I'm really excited about -it looks darling (http://www.vrbo.com/37636
