Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

The best thing I have seen in Madrid so far, it is really worth the visiting. Hidden in a palace in front of the palacio of Cibeles, it gives an overview of the late 19th aristocratic way of life, full of marble, gilding and marketry.
The only blame I can give is the unpleasant habbit in Madrid to prohibit pictures to be taken by a staff member following the group of the guided visit...

We walked past Casa de America without going inside. It is quite an impressive building in Plaza de Cibeles, on the opposite corner to the magnificent Palacio de Cibeles. The facade of Casa de America is quite beautiful and for this reason at least it is worth checking out.

Food was good but not great, but the atmosphere is truly memorable. The outside seating, the decorative space heaters, and the foliage in the patio of the grand “Casa de Americas,” makes for a great dining area. The food was reasonable, and some of us liked their dish more than others. Overall a good dinner.

This impressive building occupies one side of the roundabout in Plaza Cibeles. I was intrigued by the beautiful facade, with some sculptures at its top. Classic architecture. I understand it is currently a cultural center to hold exhibitions and screenings. A good spot to take a photo of the entire building is right across the street.

Just stumbled across this building, saw they did tours throughout the day(Saturday). Paid€8, did the tour, just the most amazing building I have seen in Madrid. Not a palace as such but a sumptuous home, beautifully restored , easy to imagine life there as a wealthy couple. Would suggest a visit to see how Madrid society lived.

Noble and grand building in the midst of so many museums and national buildings, with park land nearby. Classic architecture.

A proper gem if you are a cigar smoker. The Cuban tobacco company runs a smoking lounge in the basement. Not only does it have a proper selection of Cuba's favourite cigars to be enjoyed in the lounge. Well ventilated smoking lounge AND it has one of the best selection of quality rums.

Bravo!!!

Hey, if you want information about the art exhibitions and classical concerts at the Casa de America - an extraordinary place that looks like Herman Munster's house in the Paseo de Recoletos (just a cricket ball's lob from Recoletos station) - look somewhere else.
I'm talking about the open-air bar in the forecourt of this imposing establishment, where - on Friday night in 34 degrees of lovely warmth - we attended a pre-wedding party.
The beer, wine and cocktails flowed, and the conversation rose to giddy heights.
There's a leafy backdrop (you enter through a tropical garden), and you sit around on stools with misters sending clouds of airborne water into the evening air.
The service at the bar, known as Terraza de Cocteleria, Le Cabrera (though I couldn't find the Trip Advisor reference to it) is OK, the prices are steepish, but it's the buzz that was the best bit.
A small bottle of sparkling mineral water was 3euros 50, a small beer 6euros, and we had some food too.
It's really bar snacks.
We had a slate tile with five mini hamburgers (Mini Hamburguesas in Spanish) for 15 euros. OK, but nothing special. It was more like blotting paper than food, but it did the trick.
If you want a lively bar on a warm evening, it's a good choice.

My wife and I saw the two exhibitions, one about Garcilaso de la Vega, and the other about Saint Teresa. Both exhibitions were very good and interesting. We enjoyed the exhibitions very much and learned a lot.
