Neighbourhood: Centro
Expansive plazas, local and foreign crowds, street performers, colorful lights, window shopping, restaurant signs promising the best paella, ham, and churros con chocolate- this is downtown Madrid, a collection of plazas interconnected by a network of side streets. Some of these side streets are wide pedestrian shopping routes, and some are hidden, so it's possible to duck in and out of the bustle as desired. The iconic Puerta del Sol is the giant crossroads of the city and a must-see attraction at any time of the day. The nearby Plaza Mayor, completely enclosed by historic red buildings, is an ideal place to grab a bite to eat outside, amidst scores of tables and people out for a stroll. Plaza Isabel II (also known as “Opera”) is smaller and a good meeting spot, and the stately Plaza del Oriente is the front yard of the Royal Palace. Centro can be touristy (pickpockets are unfortuately not unheard-of here), crowded, and sometimes gimmicky, but it is also the place to experience classic Madrid.

Looking for a ripoff ?
...Then this is the place to go. Visiting this bar offered to be huge disappointment. After ordering from the menue I was charged almost twice the amount as indicated. The special offer seemed to be a scam and all items were charged individually (thanks for not indicating this when I made the specific order). Unfortunately the owner pretended to not speak English suppressing further discussion. Last but not least he kept additional 10% for tip without asking!
There are so many nice bars around, I strongly suggest to skip this one.

Not tourist friendly
We wanted to have a quick breakfast before heading to the airport. But the seemingly friendly offer to get the beverage from another breakfast combination in the desired combination turned out a desaster. We had two pay for both breakfast combinations per person! We didn't even had everything from the two breakfast combinations but had to pay four breakfasts in total. Although we tried to sort the matter out, unwillingness of the owner and our limited Spanish skills made it not possible. A pity that this was our last madrid impression before our flight home.
