“Nice photo”
Reviewed 9 July 2014

This is just a nice photo opportunity. The building is nice but that it. Take a look as you go toward the Cibelles fountain.

“Beatiful Building”
Reviewed 2 July 2014

If you walk around in Madrid, you can't miss this building. No special trips required. Located at the corner of Gran Via and Alcala, it's just the beginning of a very interesting and busy street that has many interesting Bourbon buildings. Do take a stroll.

“So Unique and Beautiful”
Reviewed 29 June 2014

So glad I didn't miss getting to see this unique and beautiful building even if it was out the window of a taxi as we passed by. Early in the morning would be an excellent time to capture a beautiful photograph without so many pedestrians and the sun would be in front making for perfect, natural lighting. So many things to do and see within this particular area. Next time I will find a little cafe with outdoor seating so that I can just sit and enjoy!

“What a building!”
Reviewed 16 June 2014

Iconic in Madrid, and understandably so, a real architectural gem in a great area of the city. It really should be seen both through the day and at night as it looks fantastic in both cases.
