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 the Malasaña edge. Shops and bars here range from hippie-crunchy to upscale trendy, and on weekends, the streets are bustling around the clock as the nightlife progresses from dinner to bar to disco to late-night food. On the west side of the neighbourhood is the subdistrict called Conde Duque, named after a large pink fort in its center that has been converted into a cultural center for exhibitions and performances. Prettier yet just as edgy, this intimate corner of Malasaña is home to a young international community.
This is similar as going through champ de elysee in paris, with a little less glamour asthetically. It has street performers, different little markets and mutliple stores and restaurants on the path. Good spot to check out
This small baroque church is just a short distance from Gran Via. However, it doesn’t seem to be a top tourist destination so it was not crowded at all when we visited. It is well worth seeking out though because the interior is absolutely breathtaking.
The church, built in the 17th century, is completely painted, from floor to ceiling, with...

"Must See for Lovers of Cervantes"
reviewed 3 weeks ago by David H
Plaza de España, at the western end of Gran Vía, between Calle de la Princesa and Calle de Bailén, is a wonderful park. There is a fountain, a reflecting pool, grassy areas, olive trees, and very large monument to Miguel de Cervantes Saaverdra. One of the most recognizable monuments in Madrid, it features bronze statues of Don Quijote, and Sancho...

If you want to have a virtual reality zeppelin experience, this is the place to go. This is a very modern building within a shell of a traditional one. The oddly shape, original elevator takes you to the different expositions. There is a permanent exposition about the history of telecommunications in Spain and Europe with a personalized experience in a...
Went on to try their Arepas and Chimichanga, and hell yeah those were awesome. We tried one of each in this cosy little place down the street. 4 stars just cuz the portions are small as compared to price but are a must try for taste buds.
This is a beautiful hotel that makes every effort to maintain the rooms and property to very high standards. The street side can be noisy until 3am but we had no difficulty sleeping. Staff is very helpful, accommodating in every way. You will not be disappointed in the hotel. We find it more interesting to stay closer to Sol, more...
Great accommodation in the heart of Madrid I would highly recommend it
Clean and tidy and perfectly equipped
It has everything you would want and more
Rooms are extremely comfortable and well proportioned
The hotel is just off Gran Via, and as a result perfect for exploring Madrid.Good rooms, where you can't hear the noise from outside. Air Con was very good and kept the room nice and cool.Friendly staff who are able to deal with all queries in a friendly and professional way
This hostel is right off the Gran Via in walking distance of everywhere. The rooms are spotless and the staff are wonderful. They gave me a room on the street at first which I found noisy. They moved me quickly the next day to an inside room (window facing the internal courtyard). I don't need sun, I need quiet, so...
My husband and I were spending the last 2 nights of our 2 week honeymoon in Madrid. We were upgraded to a suite—which was absolutely gorgeous with 2 balconies each facing a different part of the city!! The upstairs bar/lounge area has a spectacular view of the city as well as the sunset. The restaurant also has amazing food and...
