  • The main reason for visiting might be the observation deck, which gives good views of the city, and is very reasonably priced. However, it is an interesting building with regular temporary exhibits. I...  more »
  • The views are lovely and give you a good panoramic 360 degree view of the city. Although only 8 stories high, the height of each storey of the building means you're higher than the 8th storey of a mod...  more »
  • It cost €4 to go up to the Mirador (viewing deck), which gives a great relaxed 360 degree view. Queues are short, if at all, and the attraction is well managed. Buy your ticket at the Taquilla window ...  more »

  • If you want to see the city from above is fully recomanded going here. With 2€ per person you can access the tower that allows you to see all the city including the most important buildings. It's accessible both via stairs and elevator.
  • Popped in here to do a couple of hours work "on the run" great open space with sofas and WiFi for free use. Security scan on entry, so felt nice and safe. A great resource for me, looks like some nice tourist options too
  • Superb building. Interesting exhibitions and posters with the history of Madrid, also a place to relax or work on nice sofas (and charge your mobile batteries).
  • Ideal place to spend the time reading, using your laptop (free wifi available) or visiting any of the exhibitions on different floors. Magnificent views over Madrid from the terrace (2 €). Tourist office available on the first floor.
  • This beautiful palace allocated in the center of Madrid now is opened to the public showing temporary exhibitions. Also you have different chill out areas inside the building quiet, with plugs MN tables and sofa's. You can spend some time reading magazines there. In the last floor you have a balcony where you can admire Madrid sky. At this precise moment it'ss closed under refurbishments works in it.

Where to stay in Madrid

The Spanish capital is known for its array of distinct neighborhoods each with its own appeal. An affordable and easy-to-navigate metro system, which makes it is easy to get around Madrid gives you more flexibility in choosing where to stay. Perhaps the most popular choice is Puerta del Sol, the heart of the city center and one of the main tourist attractions with its numerous shops, affordable hotels, and restaurants. Close by is Gran Via street, one of the city's main arteries, which is also home to a number of hotels. A short walk from here is Plaza España where the city's most iconic landmarks lie, including the Royal Palace and the Teatro Royal. For somthing outside the traditional tourist areas, consider staying in La Latina or Malasaña, two bohemian neighborhoods that offer a wide range of eclectic shops, quaint cafes, and lively bars.
