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

My husband and i went to Plaza Santa Ana almost every night while we were in Madrid. It was so laidback with tourists and locals enjoying tapas and cocktails. You may have to wait to get a table if you go around 10pm but such a great place to relax and mingle and really take in the culture of Madrid.... More

This plaza is much more laid back than Plaza de Puerta del Sol or Plaza Mayor. It is bordered on two side by restaurants a hotel on another and a playhouse on the last one. My hotel was right on the corner so I had ready access to lots of good food...

On a gloriously sunny October day, where better to eat out and enjoy Tapas. Also had a glass of champagne on the roof terrace of the hotel at the far end - you pay €15 but that takes you to the top and you get the drink of your choice, so of course I had a glass of champagne. The... More

We stayed near Plaza Santa Ana and found it to be the perfect place to spend our evening after a long day of sight seeing. We were traveling with young children, so this always adds an extra challenge when looking at dining options. But Plaza Santa Ana has numerous restaurants catering to a variety of tastes, and the open space... More
