This is pretty much the continuation of the Gran Via but no where near as impressive and though there are many shops you certainly won't experience the plethora of shops found on the grander Gran Via.

Walked down here to Cortes Ingles which is a very large and good department store with a branch at the North end of this road. There are a few new cafes but nothing too exciting.

The Calle Princesa is a very busy street. There is a large El Corte Ingles store here and many people go shopping there. There is also a large Melia Princesa Hotel there that one should also see.

It is a great place if you want shopping and to get sweet deals, visit Mango and Zara as well as Court Englese. There are also couple nice spots to rest for a drink and local tapas.

The biggest and the most important shopping street of Madrid. Classic buildings, old constructions, full of diversity. You can see all the big fancy shops, you can find restaurants and hotels, so enjoy it !!

We stayed at the Marriott Princesa which is attached to El Cortes Ingles department store. It was a good location with plenty of shops and restaurants along the street.

Hip bars and galleries, independent theaters and music
venues, young people with tattoos and funky hair,
narrow winding streets — this is Malasaña. Near the
center, Plaza Dos de Mayo is a gathering of friends
outside bars, dog owners, artists under craft tents,
and creative types with notebooks and sketchpads on
the plaza’s benches. It may not be as neat and tidy as
many other parts of the city, but this only adds to
