Estacion de Principe Pio is an old station, originally constructed in the 1860s. In later years it was expanded. Today it is one of the busiest in Madrid. It caters for trains, metro and buses. There is also a large shopping complex and a theatre inside. We used the station several times during our stay in Madrid as our hotel was only a few minutes up the road, Cuesta de San Vicente, from the station. The outside area of the station is not very clean, particularly the side entrance, on Paseo del Rey, which looks very old, untidy and dirty. As a result individuals tend to gather on the spot leaving behind empty bottles and drink cans as well as other rubbish. The station staff can be helpful, if you are patient with them. Platforms and trains are not difficult to find and access. And the shopping area is very handy and made good use of it, particularly the supermarket.

This was a convenient place to walk from our hotel to get some food and groceries. Here we also found a cell phone shop with the sims card I needed for my cell phone. Many restaurants including some American fast food ones. The grocery store is not bad and there are enough items to put together a meal or snack. We did notice a group of what appeared to be homeless people hanging around the entrance on the two days we visited. They did not seem to bother anyone, but were drinking and just hanging around.

The old Estacion del Norte has been re-purposed into a beautiful shopping mall and the metro station of Principe Pio. A part of the old station complex still serves the Metro and regional trains as the Principe Pio station while the rest of the station is now a shopping mall. It is very near the Madrid Rio and Palacio Real and definitely worth a short visit if you are in the area. You will definitely visit it if you are arriving or departing on one of the lines served by the station.

There are some stores and shops inside the station providing something to do while waiting for trains but not really a reason to visit on its own.
