With a fantastic location right in the heart of el barrio de los Austrias in the centre of Madrid, the area surrounding the property boasts wonderful views of the city. Just by walking a few minutes from the apartment guests can watch the sun set over La Almudena cathedral and the beautiful Casa de Campo park, the capital’s largest green space, perfect for walking, cycling or picnicking. The area surrounding the apartment is one of the oldest and most typical of Madrid, with historical buildings at every turn and traditional shops, tabernas and cafes on every corner. The neighbouringbarrio of La Latina is the place to go for some of the best tapas, food and socializing in the city, while many of Madrid’s top cultural sights and attractions are within easy walking distance. These include the Royal Palace, the bustling Plaza del Sol and the lovely Campo del Moro, a quiet garden oasis tucked behind the Palace and filled with exotic birds. There are a number of different bus and metro stations nearby, meaning guests can explore the rest of the city and beyond with ease. Spacious and bright and with an elegantly decorated interior, the apartment itself is a very special space right in the heart of Madrid. The focal point of the apartment is the large open-plan living area that incorporates a sitting room, dining room and fully-equipped modern kitchen. The uniquely shaped sitting room gives a sense of separation from the dining and kitchen area, and has been decorated in an art deco style, with designer light fittings, original artwork, and comfortable yet stylish furniture. The dining area is filled with light thanks to more balconette windows, and seats up to six people. The adjoining kitchen is brand new and contemporary in design, and comes fully equipped with everything guests may need during their stay.Each of the three bedrooms has been individually decorated in a style in keeping with the rest of the property, with muted tones, modern furnishings and splashes of bright colour. The master bedroom is particularly impressive, with a beautiful en-suite bathroom that includes a large stand-alone bathtub. Each of the bedrooms has ample wardrobe space. With a lovely interior and fantastic location in one of the city’s most historic neighbourhoods, this is a very special apartment for those looking to really immerse themselves in the inner-city Madrid lifestyle during their time in this exciting city.

For the first time, a rental apartment has exceeded expectations! It was better than the photos. To make matters even better, the staff were fantastic. The location was brilliant - the apartment was on the 'hop on hop off' bus route, a 5 minute walk to Plaza Mayor/supermarket/restaurants and just down the road from the Royal Palace. It doesn't get any better.

This apartment is in a good location and easy walking distance to some popular parts of Madrid. A busy road but double glazing means you don't hear it. Excellent fixtures and fittings, quality beds and everything was very clean. We had a couple of minor repair problems but they were fixed within 24 hrs. An excellent alternative to a hotel.
