Similar to some other reviews, it's an ok square, nice fountains, would not make a special effort to visit unless heading around or passing that way. 5-10 minutes max.

This is a great spot for a photo opportunity with Don Quixote and Sancho in the background. We were there around 9:30 AM in July. So we had to adjust to the south a bit to get a good shot without the sun burning out...More

This is a nice park to visit if you strolling around and coming from the Templo de Debod to Gran Via. There is a big Cervantes monument and a lovely fountain.

Plaza de España is a nice small park. There is a nice statue here and the park is a nice place to visit.

It was in a perfect area, next to two subway stations. Staff was helpful. The bar was good and the rooms were spacious, clean and comfortable.

Not all metro stations have lifts, I found this out when I arrived at Portal de Toledo. Plaza de Espana does, it is a very busy area, lots of intersting cafes, bars etc nearby.
