"Pocket" guide, 26 Feb. 2011
Check the dimensions- this is quite small and has a tiny font. Great DK pictures. It does have some good maps, although most hotels seem to give these away for free. It did have all the sites listed and a couple good detailed sections such as for Palacio Real, but information such as the free opening hours for museums is not always comprehensive. I thought it spent a large number of pages dedicated to sites outside Madrid that were not that relevant for my trip, but useful if you're planning to head out of the city.
This would be a great book to take out for the day with you, but I would recommend having a more detailed guidebook back in the hotel room.
