Lots to see and do in this crowded area of Spain. Lots of shops and restaurants. We stayed at the Gran Via 48 and it was loud. If you are after that type of thing, this is your place!

Gran Via is the theater street and has many shops and restaurants. It's a bit overrated and when we were there there was major renovations going on all around.

This is a nice street, with lots of things to see and do. However they are extending the pedestrian area which means that currently there is not much space to walk around. It feels safe walking around, but you will see drunks and smell drugs.

I Have never seen such a street which is packed with people at all times of the day. Oxford street in London does not match to the great amount of people that use this street.

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
