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.
Down payment of 50% of the total price to secure a rental, the remainder upon arrival.
The 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!
The Madrid City / Madrid Historical Centre area
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...

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.

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... more
