The Space

A  High-quality apartment with magnificient design. Located in a very calm and typical street, it is easy to get to Sol, Opera and other emblematic places in Madrid in just a few minutes.

The apartment is in the first floor of a XIX century building with high ceilings, original wooden floors, and three nice typical balconies where you can lean out to see the “madrileña” life passing by.

The first of two bedrooms has a queen bed, big built-in wardrobes, and its own bathroom with an awesome vintage tub and a separate rainshower. The best part of this fantastic room are the great french windows from which you can reach a nice and green typical patio.

The second room is provided with two individual beds, a built-in wardrobe, a working desk and a private bathroom with rain-shower. A lovely balcony completes this charming room.

The kitchen is absolutely great, completely equipped with everything you may need: coffeemaker, toaster, dishwasher, washing machine, dryer, etc.

The living room is cozy and has two nice balconies facing the street. You’ll also find a comfortable dining room.

Enjoy living like a real "madrileño", have a nice walk to the Palacio Real, the Barrio de las Letras, or the best museums in Madrid. This is a friendly and vital neighborhood where you'll find everything you need, and much more, just around you.

  • Die Wohnung ist nicht nur äusserst geschmackvoll eingerichtet und herrlich zentral gelegen, sondern auch perfekt für Familien mit Kindern geeignet. Vor allem die eleganten Badezimmer und die hervorragend ausgestattete Küche haben es uns angetan. Wir kommen jederzeit gerne wieder!

  • We travelled to Madrid with our family over the December holidays.
    The apartment was well situated in central Plaza del Sol. It was spacious and had all the necesary equipment. I would stay in the apartment again and recomend it to anyone travelling to Madrid.

  • Our family of four enjoyed a wonderful stay at Elena's apartment. It was our first time to Madrid and the location is unbeatable. The apartment is spacious and well appointed (lovely decor, tons of closet space, kitchen well kitted-out), with air conditioning if required. Our hosts were very helpful. We would definitely recommend this apartment. July 2013

  • My husband, daughter (adult) and I had the pleasure of staying in this apartment. It was clean, comfortable and the PERFECT location! We were able to walk to the main sights, shopping and many restaurants. Elena was a most accommodating host and answered even my most specific questions such as where to find a hair salon! Her email responses were always timely and she provided all the information we requested.
    The master bedroom/bath was well-suited for us. The second bedroom had its own bath which was perfect for our daughter. As indicated in the description, the second bedroom has twin beds which could be a little tight for two adults. But it would be great for children or teenagers. The kitchen was well stocked with plates, glasses, etc...and some fruit from Elena for our arrival! The washer and dryer was also handy since we were continuing our travels and could leave with clean clothes.
    I would recommend this apartment for anyone visiting Madrid!

  • Find yourself in wonderland

    I was never expected to find anything so beautiful when I was looking for a place to stay. Usually I use an apartment as place for sleeping while the rest of the time I spend to explore the city. But not this time.
    It is very difficult to get outside to the wonderful sights of Madrid (which are really close by the way) when you live in such a marvelous/beautiful/amazing apartment.
    One more time I want to thank Elena for her apartment.

  • El departamento es tal cual lo mostrado en las fotos del site; considero el comentario importante dado que no siempre está situación se cumple cuando se alquila un departamento por internet.
    La localización es excelente para alguien que quiere estar cerca de los principales sitios de interés turístico, la mayor parte de los cuales son "walking distance" y los que no se visitan con la ayuda del metro cuya estación (Opera) se encuentra a una cuadra.
    Elena es una excelente anfitriona estando siempre disponible para cualquier duda o inconveniente que se presente sea o no referido al departamento.
    Recomendaremos el departamento a amigos y, en nuestro caso, si volviéramos a Madrid lo alquilaríamos nuevamente.
    El único tema a tener en cuenta para alguien que arriba con automóvil es el estacionamiento dado que es una zona turística por excelencia y, especialmente en el período Natalicio, estacionar el auto es difícil.

  • Elena is a wonderful host! She is full of information about the neighborhood, restaurants and shops. Also, she is very kind, really helpful and friendly! She is the best host you can have!
    The apartment felt like home! Superb location. Walking distance to a number of major attractions and Mercado de San Miguel - a place everybody must go! It is very spacious, clean, very nice, very quiet and private. There is a nice garden inside! The mix of antique and modern furniture make the place unique! Very good towels, linen, pillows and mattress.
    We fully enjoyed our stay! Would definitely go back and would recommend to all!

I love to travel; it's one of my great passions. At first a traveled alone, then in a couple, and, for the last few years, with my children. A while ago I came to the conclusion that I preferred to travel renting a house than to lodge in a hotel, not only for the price, but also for the comfort and especially because renting allows you to live your destination more like a native. Now I have the opportunity to help people from other places feel like "madrileños," make their trips different, allow them to integrate with the community and have the least "touristic" experience possible; this is why I love to make all kinds of recommendations about the great city that is Madrid, so lively and brilliant. What is my first bit of advice? Don't forget look up at Madrid's sky every once in a while during you stay, it's a gift to the senses!
