Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    The size of the collection is perfect. I spent 2 to 3 hours there.

    No regret to go.

    Don't go for the free option unless you are on an extreme budget. It will be too rush to enjoy.

    Also get the audio option.

    Huge market. Lots of stalls and antique shops, heaven for people who wants to buy curious and old items. You can find clothes, stuff for the home and places where you can drink or eat something in there, too. It's worth going in the morning, after that it usually gets crowded. In any case, it's worth going there at least once.

    Great market, very friendly with fantastic range of produce. Craft stalls, food stalls, bars etc. Much less touristy than San Miguel (less flashy, cheaper and more authentic).

    You should always go where the locals recommend. So we went to La Lopez in Mercado Anton Martin. The food is excellent, ad is the wine and beer. The staff are really friendly and very welcoming. Would definitely recommend.

    A vast soulless place in its time, I bet. Large enough to have housed thousands of workers. Perhaps in the heat of summer the windowless rooms would have been cool rather than cold.

    Plaza Lavapies is an interesting area in the middle of the Lavapies district. The area is quite multicultural and this means that you get an amazing variety of food as well as culture. Walking through you get the feeling there are many poorer families in the district in general, but the Plaza and other spots in the district are worth visiting at least for the range and quality of the food on offer.

    Mago Pop Broadway Edition

    Is the show Spectacular ? It really is and a total must watch However.....

    Is it worth €85 for good seats ? NO the show without video inserts and heavily extended applause cues is about 55 Minutes ( The show itself is only 1 Hour 15 total )

    It's a spectacular show indeed ! If you get seats priced at 30-40 Euros it's worth it.

    If you've already seen his show - Nada es Impossible it's basically the same show with what seems fewer acts.

    Venue is Great and viewing is good from all seats

    Language - Although the show is in Spanish it does have subtitles for most of the show on the top using a screen.

    The show's team are constantly walking around the isles which is heavily districting stopping people from filming / Taking pictures / Cameraman walking in and out it's very distracting also general production crews.

    In review - if you can afford it go to this show it really is good however if you want to have a theatre experience i don't think this show gives you a Theatre night out but more of a spectacular hour event.

    Plaza de Cascorro Madrid is a lovely plaza with several shops around, including cafes, restaurants and others. It's named after a small town in Cuba. So this plaza is named in memory of Cascorro's siege during the 19th century Spanish-American war in Cuba. Interesting!

    This place is defenitely worth making a trip! It smells with history. The architecture, the icons... But, leave it to Europeans to remind you who's in charge! We got kicked out, because the church was going to be closed for a nite! Welcome to Madrid! )))

    Large city gate, right outside of the hotel. As others have mentioned, far fewer tourists at this gate. Lit up at night.

    Plaza de Tirso de Molina is a public space in the center of Madrid with a triangular plan, which extends towards Calle de la Magdalena and Plaza de Anton Martín. In this place was setting up the first flower market in the city. The square has a triangular plan and in its present shape was established since i1840. Walking through the streets of Madrid, it is a pleasure to suddenly come to this square to discover the colors, flowers, plants, bouquets and floral decorations. In the square there are also three fountains and the statue of Tirso de Molina.

    Very good place to have lunch or get a drink in a good and popular neighborhood. I highly recommend to get inside the café restaurant Pavón !

    Glorieta del Emperador Carlos V is a large public space, outside the Madrid Atocha Central Train station. In fact most people really know it as Atocha square, because of that reason. However it has been named after King Carlos V, who was King of the Holy Roman Empire in the early 16th century. He was also King of Spain, known as Carlos I. The square itself is useful as a huge roundabout, regulating traffic in the extremely busy area in which it is located. It is very difficult crossing the road at that spot, due to the traffic congestion most times. There are shops, like cafes, restaurants, bars, fashion and the like in the vicinity, but you would really be better off doing your shopping in much better, more comfortable and safer areas, than in this one.

    This is a beautiful church in Embajadores, Madrid. When I visited the church, the dome was under renovations. It is a beautiful church as many in Madrid.
