Nice plaza in Madrid. I enjoyed eating tapas, an excellent bacalao, and very good wine of the house in one of the plaza restaurants. Great for nightlife and peoplewatching during summer, beautiful building and house aroung it.

Terrific area, all around this neat little square. I'd stay closer nearby next time, even though we're actually only a few blocks west.

This is an area of the city that seems to be somehow isolated from the rest. It is very lively, full of terraces and seems to have a live of its own. Young tourists seem to have the most of the place and the hostels...More

This is a fun place to have a glass of wine and tapas, either late afternoon or late night are especially enjoyable for atmosphere. It is not a particularly worthwhile destination just to see it, however. There are two children's playgrounds right in the square,...More

There is a good choice of restaurants but the tables get full very quickly from 20.30 to 22.30. Either go early or late or better still book a table!

We came to plaza Santa Ana for the Villa Rosa flamenco show, and were amazed by how beautiful it was at night time. So many bars and restaurants, and it is so vivid at night. I highly recommend it

Also known as Barrio de las Letras, Huertas was once
home to prominent literary figures, Miguel de
Cervantes and Lope de Vega among them. The
neighbourhood is committed to celebrating its rich
heritage: Calle Huertas itself is inlaid with quotes
from celebrated authors, street names pay homage to
them, and second-hand bookshops pervade. Huertas
receives a fair amount of spillover from the center —

They're all ok... Depends on how you like tapas or if you prefer raciones. I like the tapas at Lateral but the service sucks big time. If you feel like eating tapas somewhere else you can go to other places near Sol, like... More

We had dinner at one of the restaurants on the plaza (don't remember which one, but facing the big hotel it was on the right side). I had delicious grilled salmon and a salad. There are lots of "simple choices" with fish or... More
