Consejos Nochevieja en la Puerta del Sol

New Year’s Eve is just around the corner. It’s time to say goodbye to 2016 and the preparations are already under way.

There is no better way to enjoy the evening than from a strategic spot just in front of Puerta del Sol where the sky will light up when the clock strikes midnight and millions of people watch the new year roll in.

Whether you are from Madrid or not, we urge you not to miss out on this fantastic experience together with your family, friends and acquaintances. You can enjoy the show from the balcony of our hotel or at street level.

Here are a few tips to bear in mind so that you can enjoy this important holiday to the fullest in your own style.

Select 12 grapes It is a tradition in Spain to eat 12 grapes in time with each strike of the clock, symbolizing each month of the year. One trick is not to look at the people next to you because you might choke if you begin to laugh! It’s a great moment to close your eyes and make a wish for you and a loved one.

Go with others Although Madrilenians are very welcoming, it’s great to be able to bid farewell to the year with someone you know and who can share in your happiness and excitement.

You can dress up If you want to ring in the new year in costume, you can find whatever outfit you want at one of the nearby stores for a reasonable price.

Don’t bring valuables We recommend you don’t attend with valuable items such as jewelry, purses and wallets, among others. If possible, it’s better to keep your ID, cell phone and money in your pocket. Be very careful with your belongings, because if you aren’t careful you could lose them.

Prohibited items Blades, firearms, glass, firecrackers and blunt objects are not allowed.
