Plaza de Santa Ana is one of many squares in Madrid. If you want some where more quiet, this is an ideal place. You can also have a drink or have something to eat. I just passed through it, so I can't say about the service & food. Puerto del Sol is more lively with lots of restaurants & shops.

In easy proximity to our hotel, this Plaza is just the right mix of activity, people-watching and respite ... with families playing in the little play yard and lively tapas patios where you can sit and enjoy a light meal. We tried several of the restaurants on the patio and all had yummy food and drink and good service for... More

Join many locals as wells tourists to sit in one of the cafes and have tapas or a drink. Many bars and shops within a few metres and relatively sheltered and peaceful (at least in April) compared to busier squares.

Many food options, nice tapas around, a great hotel facing the plaza with drinks bar at the top. Close to the bigger plazas like Mayor and Sol.

Relaxing and cosy atmosphere at this Plaza. While stroling along you can choose between several good restaurants and bars. Easy to get a good meal in this area, whether you go there for lunch or dinner.

Come on a Friday or Saturday night and the Plaza will be full of people, mostly younger generations. But come at any time and enjoy the Plkaza with the Teater at one end and the elegant hotel in the other. In between are small tabernas and cervecerias, among them Cafe Alemana. Restaurant VinaP on the Plaza is a good and... More

The Plaza Santa Ana is always a nice place to visit. There is always plenty of space in the plaza and the design is quite good. There are two statues there, one to Pedro Calderon de la Barca, and the other to Federico Garcia Lorca, the writer from Granada. There is also the Hotel Melia ME, which is a very... More

I read about this plaza in a couple tour books, so we went there to check it out and were not disappointed. The plaza has interesting old buildings around it that now are bars and restaurants. These establishments have many tables and chairs in the plaza and it's very enjoyable to sit, have a drink and watch the world walk... More
