Having read great reviews I wasn’t disappointed with our visit. The staff on arrival explained things clearly and offered us a free drink from their self service area. They then wrote the time we entered on our wristbands. We spent about an hour enjoying the...More

These cats are spoilt and loved and that couldn't make me happier - they live in safety and have loads of space to roam. The minimal entrance fee you pay is used to support them - drinks were free!! non alcoholic, but still worth the...More

Off the main streets but close to the center of town, this is a nice way to spend an hour while visiting Madrid.

This is literally like having your own home filled with dozens of cats. Playful, and relaxed, all kinds of kitties to enjoy while having a drink or reading a book. Absolutely recommended.

I'd say this is less of a cafe, and more of a cat adoption/play area. They charge you for the time you are there (you get a wristband and pay once you are done) and it comes with a free bottled/canned drink. The employees spoke...More

As cat lovers, we stopped in to check it out. Very nice place, seemed like an old apartment converted to a cat sanctuary. Lots of cats around, cool atmosphere and nice to relax and spend some time with the cats residing there.

After visiting Museo Reina Sofia, we decided to stop by La Gatoteca because we have never experienced a cat cafe before. Well, it's not really a cat cafe per se, it is really more of a cat shelter where you have an opportunity to interact...More

I had heard about this place and thought I can't leave Madrid once more without visiting it. So that I did today. They have around 15-20 cats in two floors area and you pay according to the time you spend inside (approx. 6€ per hour)...More

Lavapies
Walking into this neighbourhood is like entering a
different country ... except it's hard to tell which
one it is. One side of Calle Lavapiés is lined with
Indian restaurants, the other with kebab shops. Men in
traditional African clothing convene outside their
businesses for long chats, and people shout to each
other across plazas and streets. Interspersed among
ethnic specialty shops are independent theaters and
