Madrid is a capital with history and a special charm. Whether you are visiting as a tourist or for business, you can enjoy a great gastronomy, cultural events, some of the best museums in Europe and many streets to get lost in. It is not that difficult to find free wi-fi in Madrid but we have worked on a list of places that will let you have a unique experience in addition to the Internet usage.
The central square of Santo Domingo is just a block away from Gran Vía and was renovated in 2009 offering a free wi-fi service by the City Council. It is a great option for some outdoors Internet browsing in spring or autumn (summers in Madrid are way too hot).
This central hotel not only offers nicely designed rooms but also a cozy lounge space with free wi-fi. Great for work and you can combine with the weekend brunches they organize. Check out the afterwork events too.

The Hat is an innovative concept of hostel in the centre of Madrid, just a few metres off the Plaza Mayor. It offers high-speed wi-fi for free and amazing views from the rooftop bar. A coffee with milk and a panorama for your Instagram.
La Bicicleta is one of the favorites for the young people in Malasaña, the trendiest area in town. As you can imagine bicycles are welcome and so are people coming with their laptops to work.
