Puerta del Sol, Madrid

Puerta del Sol
Our hotel was located basically at Puerta del Sol so we witnessed how busy this place was from sunrise to sunset. Puerta del Sol is only walking distance to some of the major attractions in Madrid like Plaza Mayor and Real Palace. 

Aside from the authentic Spanish restaurants, you can also find KFC, Mc Donald's, Burger King and Starbucks.

The Madrid City Tours hop on hop off bus has a stop right across the street. There are also a lot of souvenir shops around the area.
