    If you want to see the KIO towers, that someone wants to convert icon of Madrid, go. If not, come not near. You will move away from the old town, you're not going to see any monument and you will only get the classic photo of the towers. Dispensable, except that you pass by the courts, you go to the Santiago Bernabeu or the station.

    We visited this plaza because it was close to our hotel. It was quiet and had a small garden adjacent to it. Not much to do in the area. If you are near Plaza de Castilla than absolutely stop by, but ...  more »

    I am very happy with what has been the plaza de Castilla station, lines 1, 9, 10 Metro and the bus interchange. The surface square is impressive, although there isn't much to see.

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.
