The Space

Sunny, cozy, one bedroom apartment in the heart of Madrid. Walking distance to all amenities, public transportation, museums, shops, restaurants, cafes, and bars. It is located in Ópera square, right on the corner of the Opera house and the fabulous Plaza de Oriente (Royal Palace Square), the most beautiful spot in the city. Apartment is on the 5th floor, has hardwood floors, a living room with an additional sofa bed, dinning and studio areas, one bathroom, and a small, separate kitchen. Fully furnished. Elevator and doorman in the building. Very quiet.

This apartment is the house of a university professor working and living in the US at the moment, so the entire unit is available all year long from the end of August to mid December, and from first week of January to mid May, when the owner is not there for its use.

Keys in hand upon arrival with my manager. Refundable security deposit of 100 euros for short term occupancies.

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • We lived in Olga's apartment for a month, and we really enjoyed it a lot. It is located in the heart of Madrid, with the Opera and the Palacio Real right next door. The apartment has a cosy atmosphere and is well equipped.
    The contact with Olga was super friendly, she was very helpful and replied our emails immediately. All in all we had a wonderful time in Madrid and in Olgas place!

  • La estadia en casa de Olga fue realmente muy buena. El piso es muy agradable, perfectamente ubicado, dotado de todas las comodidades que funcionan perfectamente. Todo estuvo genial. Sinceramente no dudaria en recomendar su piso para una visita a Madrid !

    Le séjour chez Olga a été parfait. L'appartement est situé à côté de l'Opéra, idéal pour les visites de la ville, il a tout le confort et tout fonctionne sans le moindre problème. En résumé tout a été génial. Sans la moindre doute, je recommande son appartement pour un séjour à Madrid.

  • I had a fantastic stay at Olga's apartment in downtown Madrid! The place is very centrally located, so it's really easy to get around and enjoy the city. The apartment is also very cozy. My stay felt like the perfect mix of being at home and vacationing in a great city!

  • I have lived in Olga's apartment for 7 weeks and everything was perfect. The neighborhood is really safe, the metro stop "opera" is few meters away and it is easy to get to different supermarkets. Moreover, even if the apartment is in the city center, it is very quiet.
    Olga replies the email almost in real time, she is able to find the solution to any type of problem, even if she is not in Madrid, and the doorman of the building is always willing to help.
    The apartment is really confortable and clean, and the kitchen is equipped with every kind of appliances.
    Anytime I will be back in Madrid I will be willing to live in Olga's place.

  • Olga's appartment is very nice, and on a perfect location. Very central and close to the metro Opera. We didn't meet Olga personal, but her manager Maria was very friendly and nice.
    We were almost all the time in the city, and the weather was nice, so we didn't spend much time inside, but it was very cosy there, with a lot of books in the house and nice decoration. Perfect place to discover Madrid!

  • We found Olga's apartment stylish and cosy and the location is very central just next to the Opera. Arrangements and correspondence was smooth and our late check in on Friday was not a problem. Apart from some noisy neighbours at nights the apartment was also relatively quiet considering the central location. We had a great stay.

  • I didn't stayed at Olga's apartment, I arranged it for a colleague. I can say Olga is a very professional person to deal with, it was very easy and clear to talk to her and arrange things. The person who stayed at her place said 'it's a very cosy and nice place, and lucky to have almost a library in it :)'.

  • I stayed in Olga's beautiful apartment for the last 3 months or so. I am a student from USA and found Olga and the apartment to be a blessing! The place is located in an vibrant area - Opera. On the other side of the street were the amazing Opera House and luxurious Palacio Real. Metro, bus and taxi stands right outside - could not have asked for a better location! Olga was an excellent host. Attentive, caring, and understanding. I thank her so much for the wonderful experience I had and I hope to visit Madrid again!

    Response from Olga:

    Thanks, Ezequiel, for your wonderful review!

  • I would recommend Olgas apartment in every respect. It was spotlessly clean, tastefully furnished and had everything you could possibly need. Olga had prepared it beautifully and I felt very much at home. There is a metro 50 metres away, a convenience shop across the road, great tourist spots on the doorstep and many choices for eating. This sets a high standard, and I would stay here again in a heartbeat. Thank you Olga!

  • I would recommend Olga's apartment to anyone planning a vacation in Madrid! The location is wonderful, literally opposite the Opera House (Opera metro faces the theatre), 2 mins. from the Royal Palace and Cathedral, and the beautiful labyrinth of Old Madrid.
    The apartment itself is very comfortable, with a large sitting room and comfy sofas, which is full of Olga's many books and personality.
    The bedroom is very peaceful and quiet despite being so central, and the airconditioning keeps you cool on a warm Madrid evening!
    A superb, secure warm place from which to experience the beauty of this wonderful city!
