We enjoyed our first meal here, chilled out, basking in the winter sun. We returned on several occasions as our hotel was but a 5 minute walk away. The atmosphere is so relaxed and laid back and there are numerous bars and restaurants to while away the hours. Give it a visit, you won't be disappointed.

Plaza de Santa Ana is centrally located off Calle de Huertas and is full of character with bars and restaurants surrounding the square; also there are monuments for Pedro Calderón de la Barca and Federico García Lorca. Worth seeking out when in the area.

The Plaza de Santa Ana is a good place to visit. It is a very pleasant square and it has the monument to Pedro Calderón de la Barca on the plaza. There is also a luxury hotel called the Melia ME with a famous rooftop bar. There are many cafeterias nearby.

The plaza is nothing special to look at in particular but it is the gathering of people who stop here for food and drink that makes it a place to visit. I came here twice, once in early afternoon and found it rather bust with locals having a drink and food and again in early evening and it was far... More

There are so many things to rave about here in Madrid, but absolutely one of my favorite finds was the Barrio de las Letras, which surrounds Plaza de Santa Ana. It was a favorite haunt of writers in the 17th century, and it has a very cool artistic vibe which is totally my speed. It is filled with theaters, cafés,... More

I love staying in hotels near this Plaza. It is central to so may of the important attractions of Madrid. though the cafes there can be a bit pricey it's a nice place to relax and enjoy some tapas and vino. If you're a Spanish-speaker take advantage of the Teatro Español right on the plaza.! Nice in the evening also.... More
