Just off the Avenue de America in northeast Madrid, this Top Secret Hotel is well connected to numerous transport links and significant commercial areas of the city. Served by its own metro and rail stations, as well as several bus routes, the Barajas International Airport is within a few minutes from this hotel. As the city’s major airport and one of the busiest in Europe, the Barajas flies to most of the world’s major cities via both premium and budget airlines. Madrid-Barajas is also ideal for holidaymakers intending to fly on Spain’s ‘second city’, Barcelona, due to its unique ‘Air Bridge’ flight shuttle service.

Tourists are encouraged to pay a visit to the Plaza de Toros de las Ventas, considered the home of Spanish bullfighting. Established in 1931 and with a seating capacity of 25,000, the bullring is still in operation today and holds fights every Sunday during the March to October season. A place of immense cultural and architectural significance, the bullring is a must-see for tourists, even for those who do not wish to see an actual fight.

The nearby Calle de Alcala major road leads directly into Madrid’s city centre and to its heart, the Puerta del Sol. Literally meaning ‘Gate of the Sun’, the plaza is one of the most popular places in the city in which to congregate and socialise. The square is particularly famous as home to the clock tower which traditionally sounds in the New Year and eating of the ‘Twelve Grapes’ festival.

Just a few blocks away on foot is arguably Madrid’s most iconic avenue, the Gran Via. Affectionately known as the ‘Spanish Broadway’ and the ‘Street that Never Sleeps’, the Gran Via is home to some of the finest 20th century architecture, luxury fashion retailers, upmarket department stores and authentic tapas bars.
