Shops, theatres, dozens of cafeterias, restaurants or tea houses and thousands of people everywhere. Although describing Gran Via like that may be a rashness, the thing is that this general vision of the avenue is not really different to the reality we can perceive in this popular street of Madrid. Considered by many the main avenue of our country, living Madrid implies visiting, enjoying and experiencing everything the Gran Via has to offer.
Relevant for its history and lively nature, Madrid’s Gran Via is the perfect representation of the multicultural and cosmopolitan nature of our capital. As the Madrilian Gran Via has endless faces (all of them charming and interesting), do you fancy an express route to experience it to the maximum?
Unique plans with Gran Via as the departing point
- Shopping for all tastes
Gran Via is full of shops. A unique offer for long shopping days. From outlet shops located in some of the nearby narrow streets to the main avenue to internationally renowned brands like Bulgari, Gucci and other local labels like H&M, Zara and Mango.
Madrid is also the cradle of the last revolution of low-cost shopping: the number 32 hosts one of the most visited shops of the capital. We are talking about Primark, a huge shop where we find seasonal clothing items at really low prices and of quite a good quality.
- High level bites
Gran Via is also a place where to enjoy a delicious meal or a mouthwatering dinner with your couple, family or friends. From the Japanese fusion cuisine of SUMO to a more national cuisine like the one you can find in the mythical Café Larios restaurant.
- Architecture and design
Beyond its shops and its gastronomic offer, the Madrilian Gran Via stands out for its buildings, which are a national reference in architecture and design, like the Metropolis, the Capitol or Telefonica, a building of more than 80 metres high that can be seen from any point of the city. Contemplating their vestibules and their architectural styles is an experience in itself.
- Cinema and musicals in the Madrilian Boradway
As night falls and when calm (or relative calm) arrives in the city of Madrid, Gran Via becomes a huge stage full of lights where to enjoy the main premieres and the most relevant plays and musicals, like The Lion King or Chicago.
In pursuit of the perfect hotel
Considering that Madrid’s Gran Via is the perfect departure point for visiting other areas of the city, the best option is to look for an accommodation in the centre of Madrid for an unforgettable experience in the capital.
Our recommendation is the IBEROSTAR Las Letras Gran Via, a hotel located in the heart of the Madrilian avenue with all the services you need for an authentic experience of rest. Some of its extras? Its fitness room, its specialties restaurants and its massage service.
