All reviews busy street shopping street long street lots of shops great shopping big street great architecture big city people watching tapas primark shoppers thoroughfare callao stroll pickpockets metro
In February 2019 it's chaotic and invasive renovation work going on in Gran Via.
Noise and dirt as well as chaotic traffic (buses etc...).
Busy shopping and restaurant street.
Have a look at the nice buildings which are architectural master pieces.
This street is always very busy with traffic and can be hard to negotiate as a pedestrian. There is a wonderful variety of architecture and superb detailing on the buildings if you look carefully. There are some very high end shops here too.
This street is the heart of Madrid and full of life and entertainment. I enjoyed my time there especially that I stayed in Hayat centric gran via hotel that is located in the same street where you can go out and walk along the street...More
We stayed at Hotel Las Letras Gran Via! We had a balcony view to La Gran Via and it is definitely amazing to see so many people walking around. There's a mall called Primark nearby, restaurants, theaters, there's just a lot to do. I would...More
Big street with plenty of shops and restaurants plenty going on worth a visit some nice independent shops with good products also couple of the main high street stores with lots more choice than we would have in the uk .
Gran Via is constantly buzzing. A whole line of wonderful shopping options along with the constantly changing LCD screens on the buildings reminded me of Times Square. There are plenty of eating options or you can also go down one of the side roads and...More

Can be overwhelming at night where its like a giant can of sardines.
There are just so many people.
Restaurants, bars, theatres everywhere you look.
Also full of shops.

Certainly this is a turistic street of Madrid where you can find iconic buildings like Metropolis (the one with scupture on the top), Carrion (with the Schweppes sign), Telefonica and España.
Additionally, it is the location of a lot of stores and restaurants.
Expansive plazas, local and foreign crowds, street performers, colorful lights, window shopping, restaurant signs promising the best paella, ham, and churros con chocolate- this is downtown Madrid, a collection of plazas interconnected by a network of side streets. Some of these side streets are wide pedestrian shopping routes, and some are hidden, so it's possible to duck in and out of the bustle as
desired. The iconic Puerta del Sol is the giant crossroads of the city and a must-see attraction at any time of the day. The nearby Plaza Mayor, completely enclosed by historic red buildings, is an ideal place to grab a bite to eat outside, amidst scores of tables and people out for a stroll. Plaza Isabel II (also known as “Opera”) is smaller and a good meeting spot, and the stately Plaza del Oriente is the front yard of the Royal Palace. Centro can be touristy (pickpockets are unfortuately not unheard-of here), crowded, and sometimes gimmicky, but it is also the place to experience classic Madrid.
From Tryp Madrid Cibeles to Las Ventas is about 5 km, which translates to about an hour of slow walking. If you have time and are up for sightseeing, i recomend you do it by foot. Madrid is nealy all plain, so it's not... More
From Tryp Madrid Cibeles to Las Ventas is about 5 km, which translates to about an hour of slow walking. If you have time and are up for sightseeing, i recomend you do it by foot. Madrid is nealy all plain, so it's not that tiresome.

I stayed at the Hyatt Centrix. Across the street there is Primark a practical place for casuals. However that area is full of shops . Mango is a great one for kids stuff. Also the square just north of that hotel has several dept. stores. Some stores are open until 2:00 am. The morning is the best time to shop
