Chamberí is one of the center districts in Madrid: the zone is a great place to live or to go out since it is calm but animated, close to the center but not chaotic, perfect both for a younger crowd and for families. Possibly the only drawback to this lively place is the lack of street parking but, well it´s a real problem!
To be completely honest, there are parking spots available on the streets. The problem is that these spaces are located in regulated parking zones (green and blue spaces), in which you can only leave your car for a limited amount of time.
This time restriction is fine if you are only going out for a few minutes to buy some bread (really, you need to drive your car to go get bread?), but it’s more likely that you came to Madrid and are looking for a parking spot where you can leave your car and visit all the sights in the city – making parking in Chamberí that much harder.
If only you could reserve a parking spot without time limits online. Wait a second, you can! In fact, with Parclick you can book a space in advance, choose where to park and reserve the spot for as long as you like, whether for a few hours or a few days.
You can visit Madrid at your own pace, strolling through the winding streets and we guarantee that getting to the center of the city is all downhill from there (literally).
Looking at a map, it is easy to find the Chamberí district. Located a little north of the center of Madrid, the zone is bordered by Calle de la Princesa to the west, Calle Alberto Aguilera to the south, the Paseo de la Castellana to the east and the Avenida de Moncloa with the Glorieta de Cuatro Caminos to the north.
We´ve already mentioned that you will have no problems getting to the center of Madrid from Chamberí (in about 20 minutes by foot, you can visit the renowned Plaza de España or the celebrated Gran Vía). Although the Chamberí is close to the center, that doesn´t mean that there isn´t anything to do within the district itself!
In fact, the district is divided into six different well-known neighborhoods, Gaztambide, Arapiles, Trafalgar, Almagro, Ríos Rosas and Vallehermoso. Between these six sections, you can walk to visit the Santiago Bernabéu Stadium, Sorolla Museum, part of the large Calle de Fuencarral, or one of the many theaters in the district, like the Galileo Theater and the Theaters of Canal.
One of the most attractive aspects of this zone is the quantity of pubs and bars… sorry, we meant to say the many modern buildings, in the Neo-Gothic and Neo-Mudjar styles, capable of driving you crazy with the passion for architecture.
In addition, the district boasts great public transportation, so you will have no trouble going to any other part of Madrid. Note that Chamberí is the only zone in which you can find some metro stops, including Islas Filipinas, Ríos Rosas, Iglesia, Rubén Darío, Quevedo, Guzmán el Bueno, Cuatros Caminos, Nuevos Ministerios. Through these stops, there are a total of 7 different metro lines.
Now you understand why we like Chamberí so much – as part of our love for the district, we want to offer you a better deal each day so you can park near the center of Madrid without any problems in a few simple clicks.
