For guests who head to the city in search of entertainment, the hotel's location just off the famous Gran Vía
is the perfect stop! This well-known boulevard is lined with incredible theatres offering famous Broadway and West End musicals, the city's largest selection of shops from designer to high street
, and Madrid's best-known cocktail bars and restaurants.
Guests are also conveniently located a 10 minute walk from the Plaza Mayor - a central hub for events, markets and delicious calamari sandwiches. Through December, the Plaza is often home to Christmas markets, and is the gathering place for yearly celebrations of San Isidro (patron Saint of Madrid). The Plaza is not, however, simply a place of 21st century entertainment as in its long history it has also been witness to bull fights and even historical public executions!
