While this is obviously the main street for shopping, take the time to go down the side alleys and back streets as well. We felt totally safe the whole time and there are just as many wonderful shops , cafe, squares etc.

This is a fantastic place. There are so many shops to explore and cafes / restaurants to dine in. You can never finish exploring Gran Via. The crowd adds to the excitement making this place a haven for shoppers.

The holy triumvirate of Primark, H&M, and Zara are all here within a few yards from each other - and will no doubt get you more than a full day's worth of shopping and ATM withdrawals.

Great Selection of shop but can get extremely crowded. Great for the essentials, Zara, H&M Bershka and Pull and Bear residue here and of course a very big and crowded Primark

Lovely grand Street, the standard of shops in the area was disappointing. For more elegant shopping go to Calle Del Serrano

On my most recent visit to Madrid I stayed just off the bustling high street called Gran Via. Lively almost any time or day or night, with lots of shops and eateries and crowds of pedestrians strolling the avenue. There is handsome, ornate architecture on every block -- it's quite a grand boulevard and has clearly been so for a... More

Staying in Malasana

Neighbourhood Profile
Malasana
Hip bars and galleries, independent theaters and music venues, young people with tattoos and funky hair, narrow winding streets — this is Malasaña. Near the center, Plaza Dos de Mayo is a gathering of friends outside bars, dog owners, artists under craft tents, and creative types with notebooks and sketchpads on the plaza’s benches. It may not be as neat and tidy as many other parts of the city, but this only adds to the Malasaña edge. Shops and bars here range from hippie-crunchy to upscale trendy, and on weekends, the streets are bustling around the clock as the nightlife progresses from dinner to bar to disco to late-night food. On the west side of the neighbourhood is the subdistrict called Conde Duque, named after a large pink fort in its center that has been converted into a cultural center for exhibitions and performances. Prettier yet just as edgy, this intimate corner of Malasaña is home to a young international community.
