  • 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 is a beautiful building, located near the plaza de cibeles. Impressive and beautiful, it has only one flaw: for youngsters to enjoy the best should not be placed next to a busy road, but in a piazza grande is relaxing ... Beautiful property!

  • Pure strain Madrid and lover of my city. Sometimes we don't appreciate what we have, and CentroCentro is a great example. In addition to its beauty, is of the few free cultural centres which are, where to see exhibitions of all kinds. Without saying the team of mediators (the red vest) that perform free visits. In particular a boy, Henry, the best mediador-historiador - guide that I discovered Kandinsky.

  • The old palace of the post has been refurbished and it is now used as a multi-floor exhibition space where people can also stop to relax, read or study. The exhibition are almost always free and interesting (now there is one on artsy comics and another about historical ruins in Europe). The building is worth visiting even just because of its architecture (both inside and outside). It also hosts a restaurant with terrace on the 7th floor, but I never ate there.
  • There's art exhibitions areas to relax and hang out. And for 2 euro you can go to the top and enjoy a. I've view of the city. The exhibitions are totally free !
  • One of my favorite places in Madrid. It is the old post office that they turned into a museum, part of it is free and there is a part you need to pay for. There is also desks and couches to chill at and there is an amazing view from the tower!!!
  • Pretty decent views but nothing spectacular. Worth the 2 euros per person. The building itself is very impressive. From the library floor, if you look up, there are beautiful glass ceilings. They might have an electrical problem because any time we touched the metal handrails we got shocked.
  • As an view of asian this is very typical type of western style(not usa). Open area and big and historical type(not sure) of building. Looks nice enough.
