Apartment | 1 bedrooms | sleeps 3
A bubble where the sound of water and a gaze on a liquid sculpture flow: La Mirada Líquida (The Liquid Gaze).
The apartment is located on the fifth floor of a building with an old carriage passage, in the most majestic Madrid: the Paseo del Prado. The gardens of the Thyssen Museum are the first thing we gaze at when leaving the Mirada Líquida. Its windows overlook a lovely and very quiet off-the-street patio with a fountain.
The living-room is divided in 3 spaces: a large kitchen completely equipped with a window the lights up the space and a very nice view. A breakfast bar links the kitchen to the dining room space, with a dinner table for 4 people. The living-room area has a very comfortable sofa with a built-in chaise longue, a designer armchair, a bookcase, TV LCD 42' and iPod/iPhone loudspeakers.
Sliding doors separate the living-room from the spacious dressing room with its numerous closets and a very comfortable single person sofa bed. From here you can access the bathroom or the main bedroom.
The main bedroom has a very comfortable 180x200cm bed, with high quality bed linen and towels, in addition to several types of pillows.
The bathroom, in a relaxing water green colour, has a shower stall with hydromassage.
La Mirada Líquida is a non smoking apartment.
High chair and cot available on demand.
The jewel-board of the Sevillan painter Reyes de la Lastra: “Cristalización pura del agua” (“Pure crystallisation of water”) merges with La Mirada Líquida.
A fuchsia background brings out the oil painting of P. Serrano in the main bedroom making it visible in the entire space. Three silk screen prints from Jaime Zóbel and an oil painting from the Cuban painter Juan Roberto Diago set the atmosphere of this Estancia con Arte.

The Madrid region
The apartment is surrounded by the three most important museums of Madrid: the National Prado Museum; The Thyssen-Bornemisza Museum and the Reina Sofía Art Centre Museum, in addition to many spaces dedicate to different forms of artistic expressions.
La Mirada Líquida has an exceptional location, next to the Parliament, the Literary District and the Alcalá Street with the Fine Arts Society and the Gran Vía with its landmark architecture, its musicales and mythical places like “Chicote”.
This area, typical for its network of streets full of restaurants of all kinds and tapas bars, provides the visitors with a gastronomic and cultural experience in the heart of Madrid.
