This ample apartment overlooks a popular pedestrianised square, called the Plaza de la Paja, in the heart of Madrid's historic district in the area called, La Latina. This is an area that is rich in character, and has an abundance of traditional cafes and restaurants. Furthermore, the Royal Palace and the Basilica of San Andres are nearby. Local traffic restrictions mean that this property, despite such a privileged location, is untroubled by traffic noise. The apartment's living room enjoys charming views from two large balconied windows, which overlook the square and beyond; whilst its two bedrooms have interior windows, providing complete tranquillity for a good night's rest. This is a very cosy apartment, classically decorated with a good use of colour throughout. The living room has been decorated in beige tones, which contrasts with the warm cardinal red paintwork of the neighbouring dining room. These two rooms have hardwood floors, while sisal carpets have been placed in the hallway and bedrooms. The property has two complete bathrooms, one of which is en suite to the master bedroom. This master bedroom also benefits from a walk-in dressing room. The second bedroom, as seen in the photo gallery above, is small and has two twin beds, perfect for children.

Starting at the famous Puerta del Sol and heading either north to the Gran V?a or east to the Plaza de Cibeles, the centre of Madrid hums with people at all hours of the day and night. The enormous Puerta del Sol is at the very heart of the capital, and has been used as the city?s traditional meeting spot for both locals and visitors alike for centuries. The busy streets that radiate out from Sol?s centre are all the beginnings of the roads that will eventually lead you to Spain?s other major cities ? each of the country?s six national roads has its humble origins at Kilometre Cero, right in front of the Casa de Correos clock tower. Sol is also home to the statue of the Bear and the Berry Tree, the official emblem of Madrid, and normally surrounded by tourists trying to take photographs. The centre is packed with shops and services, including the large Spanish department store El Corte Ingl?s and a wide selection of both Spanish and international brands including Zara, Mango and H&M.
The pedestrianised streets of Preciados and Carmen head north towards the wide Gran V?a Avenue and are excellent options for those looking to do some serious shopping during their stay. Heading east down the calle de Alcal? brings you past one of Madrid?s oldest cultural and art centres, the C?rculo de Bellas Artes, where you can enjoy a film or art exhibition, or simple grab a coffee in the extraordinarily beautiful caf? and restaurant. The nearby Plaza de Cibeles is home to both the impressive Palacio de las Telecomunicaciones and the elegant Bank of Spain. The capital?s irrepressible and contagious energy starts here ? so take a deep breath, dive in and see what Madrid is all about.
