Wonderful shopping

This is like the Champs Elysee of Paris. Has a lot of high end shops and is very crowded. Has also some cinemas and some movie halls. Very central and a must visit.

It is an amazing long street, with losts of foreginers visitors who are usually coming for shopping cloths here. You can easily find anyone from anywhere in here. The street is too noisy and shinny because of the grand shopping centers. Nearby the are tall, ancient buildings with special arcitectural design. It would be really interesting to you. Also there...

Great city and great shopping with great restaurants. A must stay place when in Madrid. It is close to a bunch of historic sites. Great architectural buildings throughout the city.

This is the Madrid shopping street, all the names here as well as H and M and the biggest best stocked Primark I have ever seen . If you want shopping this is your place, but remember if you have only come with carry on luggage you might be short of space ! Ooooops !

You could spend days shopping on this street. The shops are huge. Huge penneys/primark over 5 floors. My husband was not impressed. Sfera has some nice reasonable bits and beautiful cheap accessories.

Lots of shopping and people and very lively place to be. The side streets are best. A great way to spend a couple of hours.

The Gran via is the bigest street in Madrid and is the main shopping destination. All the shops are there.

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.
