If you’re at the city center of Madrid, Spain you will experience that the city is everything but not flat. You’re almost constantly walking up and down hills. But what is missing is some kind of viewpoint – you have no chance to see how vast the city is. One option is close to the Templo de Debod where you can have a look on the Palacio Real, the Catedral de la Almudena and the western part of the city, but it is only a limited view on the city.
A good option is the rooftop bar of the hotel Room Mate Óscar at the Plaza Pedro Zerolo not far away from the Gran Via and the Metropolis building. You can sit outside, have a good (but quite expensive) drink and enjoy nice views in all directions. I would have missed something like this. Maybe these two things would make the city of Madrid better for a tourist: access to the sea and a viewpoint. 😉
