This elegant one-bedroom apartment is perfectly located for any visitor who is eager to explore Madrid's historic centre. As such, it is available for weekly rentals. Situated on the emblematic Calle Mayor, in what is known as 'old Madrid', the apartment is a stone's throw away from the famous Plaza Mayor and the Puerta del Sol. Nearby, within walking distance, are the Royal Palace and the Royal Theatre, as well as the charming, turn-of-the-century market of San Miguel. A short walk through the streets surrounding this apartment will take you through a myriad of characteristic streets of what is called, Austrian Madrid, which is constantly bustling with people coming in and out of its many restaurants, caf?s and old taverns. Perhaps the most famous of these streets is the Cava Baja, which is a must-stop for visitors who wish to sample Madrid's cuisine in an authentic atmosphere. The apartment is located in a traditional building and has been recently renovated to high standards and has been decorated in cozy, autumnal shades. Throughout the property, the dark parquet flooring adds to the warmth of this 'home-away-from-home'. In the living room, visitors will find two large balconied windows that overlook the street below.

About this location
The Community of Madrid region
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.
