This beautiful apartment is located in Barrio de Salamanca, Madrid’s most upscale neighborhood. The two bedrooms apartment is on the 9th floor with lots of light and sunshine. All rooms are exterior and face a balcony/ terrace with un-obstructive views of Madrid. The terrace, which runs along the entire apartment, is a perfect place to enjoy your coffee in the morning, or a drink and conversation any time of day or night.
The building has two entrances from two different streets. The front entrance has greenery that leads up to the building, and various restaurants (one of the best seafood restaurants in town complete with a beautiful terrace with fireplace for cooler nights), a big cafeteria serving breakfast, lunch and dinner with a big outdoor terrace, and bar/pub, as well as a popular fitness center, dry cleaner and hair salon/spa. You don’t need to go very far to enjoy all the amenities the building has to offer!
The back entrance is amidst a lovely park with swings and slides for the enjoyment of children, and more bars and coffee shops to relax for adults.
Across the street there is a nice drugstore (“Perfumeria”) as well as a supermarket for all your daily needs and another 24 hrs supermarket in case you need something after hours. On the same street in a block radius you would find a deli, fruit/vegetable shops, bakery, butcher/fish market, flower shop and boutiques. The perpendicular streets are also filled with additional terraces where you can enjoy food, and drink until late hours of the night, or as Spaniards would have it, early hours of the morning. This is especially true in late spring through the fall, weather permitting.
The building has four concierges covering shifts from early morning until 10 pm at night including week-ends. It has 2 elevators plus 2 service lifts. The neighborhood is friendly and safe, and you will see people walking or enjoying what the outdoor establishments have to offer until very late. You will be in the midst of Spanish day and night life!
The location is ideally communicated with at least 5 or 6 metro lines and buses to take you all around Madrid and surroundings. The metro (subway) connect with the two major train stations North and South where you can go in the high speed AVE train to any city in Spain and beyond.
The apartment is surrounded by four major hospitals which makes it very convenient for families coming for medical reasons. Most of the embassies are located in Barrio de Salamanca including the American Embassy, Italian, Swiss, and Belgium among others, all walking distance from the apartment. Deusto Business School (Universidad Deusto), and the Fundacion Juan March Art Museum, Concert and Shows Avenue is also a 5/10 minutes stroll from the apartment. IE Business School is not too far away.
The kitchen is compact and efficient, with all the modern conveniences of a big two door refrigerator, microwave, dishwasher, and washer, vitroceramic range and full oven. There are plenty of cabinets for storage for dishes, cutlery pots and pans which are all provided.
The Livingroom and dining area has larger windows with plenty of light and the doorway to the terrace. The sofa turns into a double bed. There is a big TV, as well as dining table and chairs.
The bedrooms and bathroom can be closed off with a door, for privacy and to minimize noise. Both bedrooms have wall to wall fitted wardrobes with plenty of space for storage. The master bedroom has two twin beds. These can easily be converted into a King sized bed for a couple by simply adding a special wedge I provide for you at your request.
The second bedroom has a daybed with a popup trundle. There is also a desk so this room can double as an office space. The entire apartment is equipped with fiber optic WiFi and TV.
The bathroom has just been fully renovated with walk-in shower, new sink, mirror and light features.
This apartment has been in my family for many decades, and we have enjoyed many memorable times together with family and friends. I hope it can be your home away from home and enjoy it whether you’re single or with family!
About Barrio de Salamanca
SALAMANCA is Madrid’s most upscale neighborhood. Let’s call it Madrid’s “Upper East Side” with the best restaurants, all the designer’s shops in the Golden Mile (Ortega y Gasset, Velazques, Claudio Coello and Serrano Streets) which is a 5/10 minutes’ walk from the house, lounge bars and all that you can need! It is also a very traditional neighborhood of Madrid, where you can still feel how Madrid was years ago. However, chick nightclubs and lounges aside, you will also be pleasantly surprised to find many hidden gems. After all, Salamanca is a neighborhood where people live in, and they too have mom and pop shops and friendly bars.
Many professionals coming to Madrid choose Salamanca as it is authentic, very secure, well connected to the city center and to Madrid’s business district, full of bars, restaurants, art and architecture, and that the quality of the housing and of the streets is really superior to the kind of housing quality you can find in the city center.
