  • We stayed near by this place in Madrid for two nights. You will find almost all type of restaurants around this place. All the monuments are easily reachable within 10 minutes using metro. One can buy a Madrid day ticket for 8,90€ that is sufficient to cover all the monuments. Specifically English brunch served around is awesome.
  • A great place to enjoy Madrid city life! It's a known place to sit in the grass and enjoy sharing a nice day with friends. A bit too crowded sometimes, for my own taste, but still a great place!
