“one of the best kept secrets in Madrid”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 11, 2012

Nice views, expositions, free press and wi-fi, just in the center of Madrid. Do not miss the crystal covered passage (unfortunately opened only on Sundays).

“Worth the time and best of all: it's free!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 21, 2012 via mobile

I have visited this building several times since it was renovated. At Christmas they have a huge nativity scene that occupies the main floor. I finally got to go to the Mirador (or the Obsevation Deck) on the 8th floor. It's free. You just need an appointment time from the front desk and you get 15 minutes to view the beautiful city from that vantage point.

Afterwards we stopped at Terraza Cibeles on the 6th floor for beers and wine.

“Spectacular!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 21, 2012

We did not go inside the palace but it is absolutely stunning to see on the outside, I was expecting something much smaller. The whole plaza is surrounded by beautiful buildings and is worth the stop. Plus it is easily accessible; just exit the Banco de España metro stop and you're there!

“most beautiful recently renovated city 'palace'”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 7, 2012

as I was told by an insider, half of the city of Madrid's debt - and therefore reason for the crisis -
But, if you look at it and if you walk around, it's just beautiful. Used to be the general post (and communications) office. Now it's a mix of exhibition and admininstration offices.
On the ground floor there is a (WLAN ) sofa area to relax and read newspapers. In the late afternoons the tower is accesible, with - as they say - a splendid view of Cibeles fountain and the surrounding area.
