About the property

Two Bedroom Apartment, Sleeps 4

Located right next to Madrid’s beautiful Opera House, this stylish two bedroom apartment is situated in the heart of the historic Spanish capital. The surrounding area is home to many of the city’s top sights and attractions, including the Royal Palace, the Sabatini gardens, and the Cathedral. The serene inner-city park, El Campo del Moro, is only a short walk away, as is the vibrant neighbourhood of La Latina, one of the oldest and most atmospheric districts in the city. The very centre of Madrid, La Puerta del Sol, can be reached on foot in less than ten minutes, as can the iconic calle Mayor and many of the architectural gems from the Austrian period in Madrid. A number of nearby metro and bus stations make this centrally located property ideal for those who want to explore the rest of the city and beyond. It is important to highlight that the building is a restored site, that dates back to 1854. The actual apartment is decorated and furnished in a unique and elegant style, the apartment itself is full of character and artistic flair, with such a great attention to detail that even the storage units are a style statement. No expense has been spared in the furnishing of the apartment, with quality wood flooring, designer lighting and original artwork on the walls. The living area is open-plan in design, the spacious sitting room and dining area only partially separated by an original pillar feature, retaining a sense of light and space while at the same time giving a little additional privacy. The kitchen is contemporary in design and comes fully equipped with everything guests may need during their stay. The master bedroom is decorated in keeping with the unique character of the rest of the property, with earthy tones and splashes of bright colour, and features an elegant en-suite bathroom. The second bedroom is a little smaller, and has use of the second bathroom. With an unbeatable central location and a stylish and unique décor, this lovely apartment is a great option for those wanting a taste of life in the heart of Madrid.

Surface Area: 79m2. First floor. The entrance hallway leads in to the dining area that is an open plan with the living room area at the end. The dining area has a round crystal dining table with chairs for 4 people. The living room area is furnished with 2 armchairs, 1 chaise lounge, a coffee table and a TV table with television and DVD player. The kitchen is separated from the living / dining area and is equipped with refrigerator / freezer, oven, microwave, a 4-ring ceramic hob (stove), dishwasher and washing/drying machine. There are 2 bedrooms. The master bedroom (queen-sized bed 1,40m x 1,90m) has fitted wardrobes and an en suite bathroom with a bathtub. And the second bedroom is just next to the entrance and has a double bed (1,35m x 1,90m) and has also en suite bathroom with a bath tub.

Great location to base your stay in Madrid

  • 3 of 5

The property is located in a great location and is close to the Metro, shopping, etc. There is a grocery store nearby with good prices so you can easily do some meals in. The apartment itself, while nice is beginning to show its age. The main bedroom/bathroom is large and well laid out but the second bedroom and bathroom are cramped and better suited for children or young adults. The dining room and living room seating look nice but aren't the most comfortable. Overall a good property to base your trip to Madrid.

One complaint that kept me from giving it 4 Stars was the amount of emails and paperwork that seemed to be required to rent this property. It seemed excessive and I felt like I was being asked to purchase the place and not rent it. This was very different from the other 3 rental on this trip that required minimal paperwork and no security deposit.

Excellent !

  • 4 of 5

Conveniently located, a few steps from the metro station Opera and a few blocks from The Palacio Real. The apartment was very clean and very comfortable. The people at Homeselect were very kind and helpful. Round trip taxi service offered by Homeselect, from and to the airport was outstanding, drivers were very professional, kind and extremely punctual 😀

Minor negative issues: We had some difficulties using the washer machine ( there should be some instructions...). Also, the bed in the master bedroom is somewhat small for big people.

Nice apartment in good location

  • 5 of 5

This apartment was very comfortable for my husband and I and our two adult daughters. The location was just a short walk (few minutes) to the Metra stop and conveniently located by many local shops and restaurants. The apartment was clean and in good condition. Javier met us when we checked in and explained all the important details about the apartment. He was also easily reached when we had questions during our stay and happy to help out in any way. Being close to the Metra alllowed us to get around and see all the popular attractions easily. I would highly recommend this apartment!

Great location, comfy accommodations, excellent service - highly recommend

  • 5 of 5

We loved this place. This flat is perfectly located right near the Opera metro station and Plaza Mayor. There is a walking street (Arenal) right around the corner to enjoy the nightlife, and the Royal Palace and Puerta del Sol are a 5-minute walk away. Therefore, it was a great place from which to explore Madrid.

The flat is comfortable and large enough to enjoy privacy (and quiet) when you want it (b/c the bedrooms are on opposite sides of the flat), but also cozy enough to enjoy hanging out.

Getting there by taxi was impossible (due to construction), so you will need to be aware of that when arriving or departing, but once there, you will be happy you chose this place. There is a small elevator but it's very convenient to just walk up.

The kitchen was a little underwhelming, and was not stocked at all. Therefore, if you plan on using the kitchen, you should probably shop for staples on your first day. Also, the lighting was not as good as it could have been (it was hard to light the space properly) and getting used to the numerous light switches was confusing. The showers were tiny (not uncommon in Europe), and showering without splashing the floor is near impossible. But none of this detracted from our total enjoyment of this place.

PROS:

- Centrally located, perfect for exploring Madrid

- Comfortable, stylish accommodations (big enough, and warm/inviting)

- Quiet street (good for sleeping), but very close to everything

CONS:

- Lighting (confusing switches and difficult to read under)

- Under-stocked kitchen (though it has all the appliances and tools, it didn't have salt or coffee filters)

- Small-ish bathrooms

Also, the folks are very responsive, and were extremely helpful from beginning to end. I can't say enough good things about them. Gracias!
