Make a holiday apartment in Hortaleza your home away from home

A holiday apartment in Hortaleza puts visitors right next to the city centre in Madrid. This locale is situated in the northeast of Madrid’s city centre. Hortaleza used to be Madrid’s agricultural hub, but has since developed into one of its most industrial areas, with diverse neighbourhoods that differ from each other in their architectural styles and their historical structures that date back to the 17th and 18th century. Most places in Hortaleza are only a walking distance away from each other; the same is true of the city centre from any holiday apartments in Hortaleza. Those who choose to make a Hortaleza loft their second home will find this to be a huge advantage and a significant saving on transport expenses. This is why holidaymakers opt for the Hortaleza holiday homes offered by HomeAway.

Things to do

-Juan Carlos I Park: This park was named after the King of Spain, Juan Carlos I. It is the main municipal park and was opened to the public in 1992. In this park you will find, a river, a lake, 21 hectares of olive trees, a garden called ‘The Three Cultures’, an auditorium and modern sculptures. Apart from cycling, visitors can take canoeing courses at the park, fish or hop on the tourist train for a tour of the park; there are also a number of picnic tables around the park for those who want to enjoy a meal together here. Music lovers will be happy to know that the Music ‘MetroRock’ festival is regularly held at this park.

-Gran Via: Although this street is over 100 years old and only one kilometre long, it is still Madrid’s most famous streets. During the day it is filled with people going in and out of hotels, window-shoppers peering in the windows of fashion and jewellery shops and those just out for a stroll. Some of the buildings on this street are the Metrópolis, Calle de Alcalá, the Coliseum, the Plaza de Espana and the Telefonica Building, which was once the tallest skyscraper in Madrid. This is where those staying in Hortaleza holiday rentals get gifts for loved ones before departing.

-Mercado de la Reina (El): It is also known as the ‘Queen’s Market’. Although it is one of the more upscale restaurants in this area, it won’t cost you much to have a three-course meal here. You have the option of dining outside or you can stay indoors, where you’ll have quicker access to the bar where they offer a wide selection of gins. However, if you are just there for a meal, you will enjoy their traditional home-style cooking with a modern twist. There is an olive tree in the middle of the restaurant that makes it stand out from the other restaurants in a unique way.

-Visit the Bernabeu: Even those with limited interest in footballing matters will fall head over heels for this marvellous piece of architecture. It is the home of one of the world’s richest football clubs, Read Madrid. Few visitors can resist the chance to grace the same corridors and stand on the same grounds as football legends of Zinedine Zidane and David Beckham’s ilk played. The rich history of the club is detailed in a wonderful museum.

Fantastic House!

5 of 5
We stayed in this house in August for a week. Sonia met us at the property to show us around and was very helpful. We loved this house. It is huge! We didn't use most of the rooms as there were just four of us staying, but the house was incredibly spacious and homely. The furniture was mainly old, but all in very good condition, and suited the house - there was plenty of storage and everything was very clean. The beds were comfy, and the bedding very clean and fresh. All soaps, washing tablets, toilet rolls, shower gels were all supplied, including tea towel and washing up cloths - often lacking in some properties, so it was a nice surprise and saved having to buy these items. Sonia also supplied pool towels which was incredibly useful as we only had cabin bags with us and would have struggled for space to bring them. Sonia also supplied several bottles of water to get us started as well as some tea, coffee and bottle of wine. The garden was huge! There was a choice of either sun or shade throughout the day and was nice to have the choice. The patio area was covered, which was nice to sit out of the sun to eat. There were plenty of places to buy groceries locally, and places to eat and drink. I would say the location was not really geared up for tourists, but that's quite a nice thing, and meant we had to try a bit harder with our Spanish! We were very close to the metro station (although closed for renovation whilst we were there, so free buses were supplied), so very easy to get into the city. Very close to the airport - perhaps ten minutes in a taxi. I would recommend a trip to Toledo - approx. 30 minute train journey from the centre of Madrid - beautiful historical town - well worth a visit. I would definitely recommend this property, and the neighbourhood felt safe (there was an alarm but we didn't feel the need to use it). Broadband was great too, in fact we had everything we needed.
