This was literally steps right outside of our hotel and I really enjoyed having it there! There were at least 3 restaurant options for eating or just stopping for a quick drink. There was a park where local kids would play which gave it a nice homey feel. Overall, great little well kept plaza outside of the hotel front steps,... More

This is perfect place to find restaurants, bars, discos and all you need to have fun in Madrid. The zone is very secure and the people is nice and gentle.

Central point of a Barrio with much personality! Restaurants, cafes and terraces, hotels, theatres, jazz club, antiquarians and design shops. And not just for tourists.

Whether you are into Spanish Iberico / Bellota Ham (5 Jotas) or just want a simple but good quality tapa with your drink (Lateral). Time stops and life is just pure. At the end of the Plaza there is a nice modern hotel... More

When we went to Madrid in 2016 it was very hot. Nevertheless we loved walking through town. Normally started in the mornings, went back to the hotel for a siesta and then back out in the evening. Plaza de Santa Ana was a place we went multiple times. We love to stroll, stop by a cafe for a glass of... More

A lively atmosphere by day or night. Lots of restaurants and tapas bars to choose from but reservations advisable on Friday and Saturday nights.

Staying in Huertas

Neighborhood Profile
Huertas
Also known as Barrio de las Letras, Huertas was once home to prominent literary figures, Miguel de Cervantes and Lope de Vega among them. The neighborhood is committed to celebrating its rich heritage: Calle Huertas itself is inlaid with quotes from celebrated authors, street names pay homage to them, and second-hand bookshops pervade. Huertas receives a fair amount of spillover from the center — side streets around Plaza Santa Ana take on a foreign party atmosphere at night, and you always see young backpackers navigating the streets — but as you descend into the neighborhood, everything becomes a little more cramped and slightly less refined, and takes on more of an underground feel. Live music is at the heart of Huertas: by night, its subdued bars are ideal for meeting friends, sipping cocktails, and chatting quietly while enjoying jazz or singer-songwriter performances.
