This is a beautiful building with beautiful views and lots of activity. We love to go to the Terrace. If you can get a table at the balcony at sunset you will experience a beautiful site of the sun going down on Gran Via and Alcalá

Free entry to the building itself plus two or three floors of good, thought provoking art. For €2 you can head up the tower (lifts available for those with mobility issues). The views were great, especially for the small price.

the Palacio de Cibiles is a beautiful building. It is very close to many of the major tourist sights so really should be viewed when sightseeing. It is on the corner of a busy intersection, but this does not affect the opportunites to get a really good view

Palacio de Cibeles is one of the nicest architectural design in Madrid, Spain. It was located heart of the city. The place was so interesting specially to the people who love arts and design. Theres no entrance fee of the building but there is a fee in viewing deck.

On every visit to Madrid we go to the Palacio de Cibeles. Firstly as you walk down the Gran Via towards the Palacio, the appearance of the building is spectacular, as though it is constructed with icing sugar. Amazing architecture. The interior will offer a delightfully cool feeling if you visit in the summer and we always enjoy a cup... More

Just passing this building you would not realise that you can go in for free to tour the interior which has comfy sofas, a cafe, free toilets and great art work. I found the exhibitions much more interesting than the museums I visited in Madrid but maybe it's because I prefer photography to paintings. I also went to the top... More

We came here for cocktails in the evening, and I have to say we couldn't have made a better choice! The cokctails were a bit pricey, but the atmosphere and the panorama were unforgettable. We were lounging on a cosy cushion, on the smaller rooftop terrace, admiring the sunset city skyline.

Staying in Chueca

Neighborhood Profile
Chueca
Chueca is the hip, gay neighborhood of Madrid where many of the streets are narrow and intimate, but where the hustle and bustle and the eclectic storefronts and people give it a distinctly urban feel. The main thoroughfare is Calle Hortaleza and the main square is Plaza Chueca, completely filled with terraza tables serving copas (mixed drinks) during summer. A mixture of trendy and grungy, some of the adult businesses here are explicitly racy in their signage. From the rainbow flags to the signs above the entrances of its many funky bars, to the date spot restaurants, Chueca is a vibrant and colorful place. It's always interesting to explore the different corners of Chueca by day, and by night, the area becomes a major nightlife destination when the clubs open their doors.
