A magnificent 160 m2 apartment located in a fully renovated old Palace-house. Its two floors hold three bedrooms and two bathrooms, a lounge – dining room, a library and a separate kitchen. El Aposento is located inside the Casa – Palacio de la Vera, a splendid building dating from 1605 which has been renovated with the upmost rigour, taste and care.

Its peculiar layout makes it a unique space. The library, with its nearly thousand books, overlooks the spacious living room, offering a very special perspective thanks to an interesting blend of materials, colours and works of art – iron and turquoise wood for the dining table; pistachio green velvet for the comfortable couches full of cushions of many different textures; iron columns and railing from the original palace; crystal, aluminium and wood; a cattail chair on the balcony. Contrasts. Harmony.

A singular hall gives access to the bedrooms of both floors. Its astonishing architecture gives the effect of being in an inside patio. The illusion of the round railing contrasts with the ceiling beams and the metallic weave of the floor. Impressive.

The high ceiling of the main bedroom makes it stand out from the other rooms. It has a 180 x 200 cm. bed with a light tulle canopy and an eye-catching chest of drawers which creates a very special spot. The mirror reflects an elegant tapestry reminiscent of Velásquez, giving the room a very warm feeling. Its nice balcony still has the original big and heavy shutters of the palace.

The duplex bedroom has a living room with a comfortable sofa-bed in the first floor, and a 160 x 200 cm. bed and a small and very peculiar window in the second floor.

This Estancia con Arte is named after the individual bedroom, El Aposento. It is the exact replica of a 17th century chamber for the court, but with all the comforts of modern life. The bed has a 80 x 200 cm. top-quality mattress with premium linen and several types of duvets and pillows.

The apartment has two complete bathrooms (with a shower and a bathtub respectively).

The separate kitchen, located in the lower floor, is completely equipped, providing the opportunity to enjoy a home cooked meal at anytime.

High chair and cot available on demand (applicable fee).

Please note the second level of the apartment has a restricted height and might be uncomfortable for people taller than 1m85.


El Aposento has a unique art collection composed by original oil paintings by Reyes de la Lastra from his collection “sensación:emoción:pintura”, “Retrato” (1963) by of Rosario Álvarez de Sotomayor, abstract paintings by J. Vieira and

several sculptures, including the bust of Doña Mariana de Austria and a Menina by Fernando Ors.

The Community of Madrid region

El Aposento is located between the Literary Quarter and the neighbourghoods of La Latina and Lavapiés, a few steps away from the squares of Tirso de Molina and Santa Ana, and a few steps away from the famous Puerta de Sol. The apartment enjoys a privileged location where one can enjoy a truly authentic atmosphere in the very centre of Madrid, in walking distance of most points of interest of the city.

Stepping out and on the left of the Casa – Palacio de la Vera is the square of Tirso de Molina, dominated by an statue of the writer, where a flower market made of eight modern metal and wooden buckets is held seven days a week. It also has a children playground, a newsstand, a supermarket, etc...

On the right are the squares of Jacinto Benavente, del Ángel and Santa Ana. Located in the famous Literary Quarter, these pedestrian squares offer a wide range of restaurants, bars, traditional cafés and tapas bars, as well as all kinds of traditional and designer shops.

El Aposento is also close to the city's three major touristic places: the Puerta del Sol, the Plaza Mayor and the famous square of Opera. A few metres away, heading down the Calle de Atocha, is the Paseo del Prado, home to Madrid's famous “Golden Triangle of Art” (the Prado, the Thyssen and the Reina Sofia).

The centre of Madrid enjoys very good transportation links both by metro and bus. There is a car park on the street of the Casa – Palacio, as well as two other car parks in the squares of Santa Ana and Jacinto Benavente (around 30 € / day).

There is also a taxi rank and a central transport hub with several metro lines and local trains at Puerta del Sol.
