Stayed in hotel just of this street so here a lot. All of the 3 big museums are closely located here, as well as train station on the end. Nice place to chilled out or wander to retire park also just off it.

The Paseo del Prado is one of the widest avenues in Madrid and is nice to see on an afternoon stroll. There are numerous museums around the area.

It is not relaxing at all. There are a lot of traffic jams, noise and people. For me, it was strange to go out Retiro park in order to get into the noisiest street. However, I really enjoyed it because it was amazing to have a walk at night in December because of the Christmas' decoration and lights.

We went to the Prado during the free evening hours. It was crowded - long line to get in. The art was spectacular - If you really want to stay and enjoy the art for a long time, I would pay the money and go during the day. It is a magnificent museum.

Loved this gallery and you could spend hours there; so much to see! We wanted to see the Goya collection and "El Greco" works also that took a good 3 hrs and also there was a Picasso exhibition on display that that was a bonus!

A wonderful location for a stroll. The trees provide a shady relief from the Madrid sun. A great place for a bit of exercise and a break from the city streets.

Long wide street from Atocha station, passing the botanical gardens, and on past the Prado, towards Ciebeles. Popular with stag weekends, large groups of locals on the bike bars, mobile bars propelled by pedal power. Great fun and not at all threatening. For me this street was better than Gran Via.

Children playing, couples ambling along passageway to cafes, exhibitions. As one reviewer notes, perhaps there are a few run-down places to be avoided.

Staying in Centro

Neighborhood Profile
Centro
Expansive plazas, local and foreign crowds, street performers, colorful lights, window shopping, restaurant signs promising the best paella, ham, and churros con chocolate- this is downtown Madrid, a collection of plazas interconnected by a network of side streets. Some of these side streets are wide pedestrian shopping routes, and some are hidden, so it's possible to duck in and out of the bustle as desired. The iconic Puerta del Sol is the giant crossroads of the city and a must-see attraction at any time of the day. The nearby Plaza Mayor, completely enclosed by historic red buildings, is an ideal place to grab a bite to eat outside, amidst scores of tables and people out for a stroll. Plaza Isabel II (also known as “Opera”) is smaller and a good meeting spot, and the stately Plaza del Oriente is the front yard of the Royal Palace. Centro can be touristy (pickpockets are unfortuately not unheard-of here), crowded, and sometimes gimmicky, but it is also the place to experience classic Madrid.
