This two bedroom apartment boasts a fantastic location in the very heart of old Madrid. Located in the Barrio de Las Letras, a stay in this beautiful property allows you to visit some of the most famous sites of the city on foot. A stone's throw from calle Huertas, one of the most historic streets in Madrid, the apartment is ideally situated on the corner of a quiet street, allowing you all the trappings of living in the city centre whilst still enjoying peace and tranquility. The traffic in the streets surrounding calle Huertas is restricted to residents only, further adding to the feeling of peace and quiet. This bohemian area is bursting with restaurants, caf?s and excellent tapas bars, with no less than four metro stations nearby, giving you immediate access to the rest of the city. Located between the famous Puerta del Sol and the Paseo del Prado, home to the 'Big Three' art museums, this apartment is the perfect choice for those looking to experience the true essence of old Madrid. The apartment's location on the intersection of two narrow streets makes for an ideal view from either of the two small balconies overlooking the street, and the open floor-plan living and dining area adds to the unique feeling of space and light within this historic building. Fully refurbished to the highest standard, original artwork adorns the walls and laminate flooring is featured throughout. The master bedroom provides excellent storage space, and the second bedroom is perfect for children or friends. Decorated in a soft, neutral pallette, this top-quality apartment is the answer to those people who are looking for a place to stay in the heart of the Spanish capital. Please note that this is a second floor apartment without a lift (elevator).

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.

Madrid City

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.
