The hotel is in the very heart of Madrid, and although inside all is peaceful and calm, outside the city is moving at an energetic pace. Gran Vía never sleeps and is packed with shopping districts, tapas bars, iconic cinemas and theatres and the best-known dance and night clubs in the city. You can find virtually anything, from the most modern, fashionable lounges to the oldest shops in the centre, on this street.
All the principal museums (Prado, Thyssen, Reina Sofía and Caixa Forum), the city’s main tourist attractions (Cibeles, Callao, Puerta del Sol, Puerta de Alcalá, Plaza Mayor, the Royal Palace, etc.) and the most famous parks (Campo del Moro Gardens, El Retiro Park, the Botanic Garden and Madrid Río, among many others) are nearby and within walking distance.
