Why is Petit Palace Puerta del Sol in Madrid special?

If the stones of Puerta del Sol could speak, they would transcribe some of the numerous historical episodes they have witnessed, such as the 1766 Esquilache Riot, the resistance against Napoleon's troops on the famous 2nd of May 1808, or the proclamation of King Fernando VII, the treacherous king, in 1812, or even the assassination of José Canalejas in 1912. They would also recount some more frivolous legends and curiosities, like the popular support for the Tío Pepe sign, which was happily spared; the fact that the New Year's bell chimes clock was built for free by José Rodríguez Losada after three years of work; or that street vendors on this street were called "puertasolinos." Due to our location, the Petit Palace Puerta del Sol has been a part of this lively succession of events, serving as a hotel that provides attentive service to our travelers with high-quality amenities. Its vintage elevator and wooden stairs with dozens of years of life attest to this. We are used to treating efficiently travelers who want to be in the heart of Madrid with excellence. It may seem hard to believe because our street has been pedestrianized for years, but Calle del Arenal was one of Madrid's main thoroughfares and a residence for the bourgeoisie during the time of the Bourbon Kings. The hustle and bustle of people continues, now, for strolling through the center of Madrid in the direction of the Madrid de los Austrias, for shopping, and for stopping at some of the iconic places in the capital of Spain, such as Chocolatería San Ginés, Palacio de Gaviria, or Teatro Eslava.

What are the main places of interest located around the Hotel Petit Palace Puerta del Sol?

Although it's an open square, originally, Puerta del Sol is called so because there was a gate that opened into the city of Madrid, and since it faced the direction of the rising sun, it ended up being named Puerta del Sol. The history of Puerta del Sol can be paused at countless moments, and it's sure to inspire you to pause at one of its numerous points of interest, such as Pastelería La Mallorquina (a century-old bakery where you can witness how the locals toss paper napkins on the floor), Kilometer 0 (a plaque indicating it's the geographical point of Spain's radial roads), the statue of El Oso y el Madroño (the symbol of Madrid's coat of arms), or the Tío Pepe sign (a nostalgic look at an icon of Spanish advertising). Puerta del Sol is also an excellent starting point for exploring Madrid's Austrias neighborhood, with the Royal Palace and Plaza de Oriente as main stops, Plaza Mayor and the San Miguel Market, Gran Vía with its cinemas and theatres, or the Barrio de las Letras with bars and restaurants. You're in the very center of Spain, with ten streets running through it that will lead you all around Madrid (Alcalá, San Jerónimo, Espoz y Mina, Carretas, Correo, Mayor, Arenal, Preciados, Carmen, and Montera). In our very own Arenal street, there is also a pleasant commercial activity. We recommend, at the very least, that you stop for some churros at Chocolatería San Ginés, admire the Gaviria Palace, and visit the Eslava Theatre. And if you want to complete your list of non-negotiable attractions, next to the Petit Palace Puerta del Sol, you also have the Royal Theatre with the finest operatic offerings, the Caños del Peral Museum to learn more about the city's history, and the Descalzas Reales Monastery with works by Caravaggio, Tiziano, and Rubens inside.
