On Gran Via, a historic avenue in the heart of Madrid
Gran Via is one of the most iconic avenues in Madrid, with beautiful turn-of-the-century architecture, designer boutiques, hotels, and lots of traffic. This location is ideal for those visitors who want to explore the sights on foot and take in Madrid’s lively yet laid-back ambiance. Puerta del Sol, Plaza de Cibeles, the grand Palacio de Comunicaciones, Puerta de Alcala, and Retiro park are all within easy walking distance. Chueca, the hopping gay neighborhood, full of intimate restaurants, bars, and cool shops is just across the street from the hotel.
This avenue is one of the main thoroughfares in central Madrid, so expect crowds and traffic day and night. The subway, bus, and even the train are nearby, but most attractions are within an easy walking distance from Hostal Hispano-Argentino.
