Bright, spacious, and elegantly furnished, this beautiful two bedroom apartment boasts a superb location in one of Madrid’s most historic neighbourhoods. The property is right in heart of the Barrio de Las Letras , so-called due to this district’s strong cultural and literary history. The apartment is actually next to thevery building where Quevedo wrote many of his masterpieces. The surrounding area is a blend of tranquil lanes and busier pedestrianized streets, often filled with tourists and locals alike enjoying a paseo around this atmospheric barrio. The apartment is ideally situated for guests to enjoy many of Madrid’s top sights and attractions, including the “Big Three” art museums found on the nearby Paseo del Prado, the buzzing Plaza de Santa Ana, and the Puerta del Sol, the very heart and soul of the city. There is an abundance of great restaurants, cafes and tabernas in the surrounding area and this is one of the best places in Madrid to enjoy an evening tapeo in establishments frequented by writers and artists both past and present. The apartment itself manages to strike the perfect balance between classic and contemporary. Fully refurbished but retaining many of the property’s original features, it offers guests all the comforts of a modern home in a historical setting. The open-plan living and dining room has exposed brick walls and large windows that look out onto the street below. It has been tastefully furnished with high quality pieces, and clever use of mirrors only serves to accentuate the feeling of light and space. In keeping with the open-plan theme, the kitchen is only partially separated from the living area and comes fully equipped with everything guests may need during their stay. The beautiful master bedroom has plenty of space, a large dressing area and designer en-suite bathroom. Exposed brick walls and quality furnishings are in keeping with the rest of the apartment and give the room its discrete and stylish feel. The second bedroom is smaller but still comfortable, and has built-in wardrobe space and use of the second bathroom. Comfortable and stylish and with a fantastic location in one of one Madrid’s most historic neighbourhoods, this is a wonderful option for those looking for a central base during their time in the city.

"Luxurious Madrid apartment in a Perfect Location"

We stayed for four nights recently in Lope de Vega II and loved everything about it. The apartment is bright, exceptionally clean, modern on the inside and enjoys an ideal location in Madrid's lovely Barrio de las Letras. Both bedrooms are well appointed and comfortable. Exposed brick and a few industrial details accent the otherwise modern interior while the building itself is older and characteristic of the neighborhood. Bathrooms have superb showers and ample storage. Dozens of excellent restaurants are within easy walking distance, and one can simply stroll from square to square in search of the best jamon iberico de bellota. Don't forget to recharge with a gin and tonic from time to time! Maybe the best part of renting this apartment is the great service from the staff at Spain Select, in particular alex and Stacey. We didn't need much assistance but they were there when we did. Highly recommended.

Lope de Vega II is a beautiful place to stay if you travel to Madrid. It's perfectly well located in a nice and quiet neighbourhood that used to be the home of the greatest spanish writers and poets. It a charming place full of nice tapa bars and select shops.
It's a very modern and clean apartment and has everything you need to feel like home: confortable beds, a complete kitchen, very nice furniture, a lot of light and a shower you would kill for.
We had such a pleasant vacation at this place and would recommend it to everyone, young and old. People in Spain Select really know what they are doing. We really have no complains. It was perfect!
