    Can not find words to express it well that have eaten at Godian. Two burgers and a few cheeks. In addition we have presented with croquettes, and a cocktail for each. Cibeles, delicious beer. Quality great price. I also highlight the friendliness and the treatment. The feeling of that give everything to haceelo well. We can not recommend it more.

  • This place is amazing! Fantastic market with so much amazing, fresh produce. It really makes you want to cook. Saturday afternoon was a revelation. The fish stands all cook and sell off their wares as they are closed Sunday and Monday. So it's trays of octopus, prawns, clams, mussels and bottles of beer and cava. Fantastic atmosphere.
  • Went around 18:00 and at least 70% of the shops looked abandoned. Perhaps it is better in the morning but I felt it was a waste of time.
  • My favourite market in Madrid. Mercado de la Cebada is modernising, but it’s ahead of the curve in recognising that not all change is good. It’s this harmonious contrast between old and new that gives the mercado its unique, eclectic vibe. During the week, it’s a place to do your weekly shop, to get a traditional Spanish menú del día, and to chat fish, meat and tomatoes with local vendors. But, when the weekend comes, the market transforms into a no-frills foodie festival, and the huge vaulted ceiling reverberates with the sound of laughter, conversation and a bit of clapping – let’s call it the madrileño hum. Amazing seafood, plump veg, good people, stunning building.
  • Stopped by for a quick brunch on a Friday morning. Great local environment with very few tourists, good food and coffee without pomposity. :D
  • I love this place. I love markets in general but the Cebada is so great, you can find everything and can lose hours walking around the stalls. Prices are fenomenal.

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.
