Which neighborhoods will you explore with our concierge services in Madrid?
Whether this is the first time you are travelling to our country, or visiting us again, there is something unique about our job. The following concierge services in Madrid that you are about to read, will show you our culture in a completely different way. FYI, the majority of our guests say that they discovered a part of town that they wouldn’t have explored on their own.
Taking into consideration that there are classic attractions and monuments to visit such as Plaza Mayor, Puerta del Sol o Prado Museum, and quirky/bohemian districts where to wander on your own, which ones would you prefer to discover if interested in the off the beaten path?
For many residents, Lavapies and Malasaña districts may seem as gentrified areas, however others love them because of the amount of street art murals and commissioned artworks. Visitors enjoy photographing them, and the graffiti that covers building faccades.
Lavapies, much more than an alternative district in town
It’s located next to Reina Sofia Museum and it’s considered by many as an open air modern art museum, where you won’t pay a singles penny to enjoy its cultural style. That’s the reason why we decided to run these concierge services in Madrid around the area.
Lavapies is home to many migrants, being a multicultural melting point. Indians, Senegalese or Moroccans are among the different nationalities that you will fin. At the same time, it’s a colorful area where business metal shutters, windows and walls decorate Calle Argumosa, Doctor Fourquet or Miguel Servet.
A former tobacco factory from the XIX century, a unique urban garden and several contemporary art galleries will welcome visitors as soon as you start walking from the national museum. To us, it’s one of the most avant-garde districts. Are you ready to join any of the guided visits that we offer around Lavapiés?
Graffiti workshops for concierge services in Madrid
In case you were interested in an experience, rather than a tour itself, we’d recommend you a hands-on activity while hiring Cooltourspain’s concierge services in Madrid. FYI, the graffiti workshop could take place both indoors and outdoors.
At first, the nearby town of Alcalá de Henares might be the perfect spot to paint open air walls. They’re legal and your decoration will last until the next street art artist decorates it. Morever, our proposed design will fit participants who don’t have previous experience while using spray cans.
On the other hand, we could rent a dedicated venue where your family, group of friends or coworkers might enjoy the activity. There will be a previously set-up wall made with a metalic structure known as a truss, and a canvas. Alternatively we could develop it with card-board boxes. Furthermore, you’ll get the chance to spray paint over 100% cotton tote bags, that you’ll later take them home as a present from the activity.
Malasaña and Gran Via’s rooftops in an arquitecture & historical guided visit
Next walking tour, offered to guests who would like to count with us for their concierge services in Madrid, will take them to discover the city from its heights. What does that mean? It refers to a guided visit where you’ll explore the national history from two of the most famous and important rooftops. That’s to say, Circulo de Bellas Artes and Hotel RIU.
Along the way, an active freelance architect will explain you the details of several well-known buildings such as the cities’ first skyscrapper, Museo Chicote or Loewe Foundation. It’s importat to note that we will engage you in an interesting manner during the 3 hours. The activity fits all audiences.
From the 7th and 27th floors along the Gran Via’s most iconic terraces you’ll be able to observe:
- Casa de Campo, the cities’ biggest green area. Over 1700 hectares of unpolluted air.
- Cibeles Palace, home to the local city council and its governing body.
- The recently renovated Plaza de España.
- San Isidro and La Almudena cathedral.
Who are the professionals involved in our concierge services in Madrid?
What you should know about our concierge services in Madrid is not only information about the districts that you’ll discover with us, but also who are the professionals involved in the guiding job and the ateliers. We’re specialists on the field, receiving several awards in the 8 years that our project has been active.
Madrid was the city that saw us growing, although we’re now present in the rest of the country. Barcelona, Valencia, and Málaga are the other cities where our private services are available. We are a group of multidisciplinary artists who teamed up to offer alternative activities.

Local graffiti writers awarded in 2023
Pinta Malasaña and CALLE Lavapies are among the street art festivals where our team members have participated during the past years. For instance, we could talk to you about the concierge services in Madrid offered by Pyramid. Hector, the real name behind this graffiti alter ego, will show you the artworks that he has painted along CALLE Argumosa or La Palma. They’re both located in Embajadores and Universidad districts.
According to our guests’ opinion, there exists an added value when it’s the graffiti writer the one who speaks about the community itself. There’s nothing better than counting with a person who interprets the walls from his/her personal experience.
Similarly to what happens with the guided visits, the workshops are led by artists who will share their spray painting knowledge. They will teach our guests how to use the masking tape to decorate specific portions, how to use the cans and caps according to each situation or how to display the background before the details. Doesn’t it sound like fun?
