Apartment | 2 bedrooms | sleeps 2
Located on the third floor of Spain Select Carretas, this luxury two bedroom apartment offers visitors to Madrid a prime location from which to explore the city as well as other parts of Spain. Carretas 301 is one of eight luxury, two-bedroom apartments located just off of the Puerta del Sol, Madrid's emblematic centre and a thriving hub. This famous square is where the clock hangs that rings in the New Year in Spain, prompting Spaniards to eat a grape for each of the twelve chimes. Many of the city's most popular attractions are nearby, including Plaza Mayor, the Royal Palace, the Cathedral and Madrid's three renowned art museums: the Prado, the Reina Sofia and the Thyssen-Bornemisza. Adjacent to the square is the Preciados Shopping District, which includes several buildings of an 'El Corte Ingl?s' department store. Crowded with tourists and locals by day, the area is still lively in the evenings as there are many restaurants, caf?s and bars nearby. Just a short distance away is the Plaza de Santa Ana, where there are many terraces for outdoor dining. As the geographic centre of the city, the Puerta del Sol has excellent metro and bus communications, and the Atocha train station is a 15-minute walk or just three metro stops away. Spain Select Carretas is to all effects a new building, yet it maintains a perfectly restored traditional fa?ade, resulting in a blending of modern facilities within a traditional architectural style. Each of the apartments in the building features professional decoration, high quality furnishings, and original artwork and elements of design. Carretas 301 benefits from two balconied windows that overlook the street below, making it a bright and attractive space. There are marble floors throughout the apartment which contrast nicely with bold blue paintwork. Both bedrooms are located in the interior of the building and are very quiet. The second bedroom has a single bed and ample wardrobe space. Please note that whilst the building has an elevator, there is a small staircase before you reach the lobby.

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.
