Further details indoors

This small apartment is perfect for a lone traveller or couple on a romantic getaway, manageable for up to 4 with the sofa bed in the dining-living area.

It has ample light and calm despite its proximity to the central historic district, in particular to the Museums, train station and Retiro Park, but also within 10-15 minutes of the Royal Palace, Puerta del Sol, Opera House and rastro flea market.

The owner is around the corner and tends to the rentals and apartment personally. Six years of successful short-term rentals.

Further details outdoors

The view is endearing and unique, without going beyond simple comfort. This is more a "room with a view" than a penthouse.

Further details

Down payment of 50% of the total price to secure a rental, the remainder upon arrival.

The Community of Madrid region

The capital of Spain, established in 1562 as an administrative centre (not a sea port or river or border town!) in the centre of the country, has been a magnet to people from all corners of Spain since its founding and in recent years has drawn people from all corners of the world. The city vibrates on its own epicentre as a meeting place, a melting pot of Spain's many regions, and a centre of culture and nightlife.

A compact downtown area allows for walking to all major points of interest within 5-30 minutes of any downtown location. However, the subway system is amongst the world's most extensive and all-serving, not to mention newest.

Winters can be gray and rainy, cold and clammy, but also sunny and brisk. Daytime temperatures average 5-10 throughout the winter and 25-35 throughout the summer. Spring and fall are often short and erratic. There is a saying, which translated means "MADRID, 9 months of winter and 3 months of HELL". It stays cold-cool and then gets hot all of a sudden. If you catch some true spring or autumn weather you are lucky!

Madrid City

The Prado Museum, Reina Sofia Modern Art Museum, and Thyssen-Bornemisza private collection. Royal Palace, Bull Ring, Retiro Park, Puerta del Sol, Plaza Mayor, Teatro Royal Opera House, as well as boutique and department store shopping throughout the city.

Bars, restaurants, tapas, music and people watching whichever way you step! Want something different, step in another direction...

"Wonderful Experience!"

We loved our time in this roof top apartment. The views were spectacular. The location was very good, as easy access to Prado & other museums in one direction, and the palace in the other. Would be lovely to return. The stairs were a challenge for old knees but I knew that so just took things slowly.

"Nice little apartment in vibrant neighbourhood, great base from which to explore the city."

The flat is small but clean and comfortable, very peaceful and lovely views over the rooftops - a restful place to come back to at the end of the day (or even in the middle of the day when the feet we… More

Thank you for your feedback and business. My apologies for all disappointment. Minor maintenance will be attended to. Regarding the missing/broken blinds, they were taken by the windstorm just before check-in and I was unaware of the damage. Had I known earlier I would have replaced/repaired them before the end of the stay. Best regards and happy travels!

"Quiet, cool and comfortable"

Arriving in Madrid after a long and delayed flight from Johannesburg we were pretty exhausted when we arrived on the doorstep of the Roof Top Nest. Tom had sent his helper to meet us and in no time at all he carried our luggage up to the apartment. It was a very hot day and we were delighted to find some ice cold water and plenty of ice in the refrigerator.

The apartment is well equipped and unbelievably quiet and cool. The views over the Madrid roof tops are enchanting. The five flights of stairs are not nearly as daunting as one would imagine and we found the peaks into the central courtyard quite fascinating. The apartment is very centrally located and within walking distance of most museums, a number of metro stations and many small little restaurants. We could not have wished for a more comfortable place to stay.
