Moncloa-Aravaca Apartment Rental Photos and Description

,

Located right next to Madrid’s beautiful opera house, this stylish two bedroom apartment is situated in the heart of the historic Spanish capital. The surrounding area is home to many of the city’s top sights and attractions, including the royal palace, the Sabatini gardens, and the Cathedral. The serene inner-city park El Campo del Moro is only a short walk away, as is the vibrant neighbourhood of La Latina, one of the oldest and most atmospheric barrios in the city. The very centre of Madrid, La Puerta del Sol, can be reached on foot in less than ten minutes, as can the iconic calle Mayor and many of the architectural gems from the Austrian period in Madrid. A number of nearby metro and bus stations make this centrally located property ideal for those who want to explore the rest of the city and beyond. Decorated and furnished in a unique and elegant style, the apartment itself is full of character and artistic flair, with such a great attention to detail that even the storage units are a style statement. No expense has been spared in the furnishing of the apartment, with quality wood flooring, designer lighting and original artwork on the walls. The living area is open-plan in design, the spacious sitting room and dining area only partially separated by an original pillar feature, retaining a sense of light and space while at the same time giving a little additional privacy. The kitchen is contemporary in design and comes fully equipped with everything guests may need during their stay. The master bedroom is decorated in keeping with the unique character of the rest of the property, with earthy tones and splashes of bright colour, and features an elegant en-suite bathroom. The second bedroom is a little smaller, and has use of the second bathroom. With an unbeatable central location and a stylish and unique décor, this lovely apartment is a great option for those wanting a taste of life in the heart of Madrid. Surface Area: 79m2. First floor. The entrance hallway leads in to the dining area that is an open plan with the living room area at the end. The dining area has a round crystal dining table with chairs for 4 people. The living room area is furnished with 2 armchairs, 1 chaise lounge, a coffee table and a TV table with television and DVD player. The kitchen is separated from the living / dining area and is equipped with refrigerator / freezer, oven, microwave, a 4-ring ceramic hob (stove), dishwasher and washing/drying machine. There are 2 bedrooms. The master bedroom (queen-sized bed 1.60m x 2.00m) has fitted wardrobes and an en suite bathroom with a bathtub. And the second bedroom is just next to the entrance and has 1 double bed (queen-sized bed 1.50m x 2.00m) and has also en suite bathroom with a bath tub.

Spain Select is Fabulous; Escalinata was our Home

  • 5 of 5
We rented the Spain Select Managed apartment near the opera (on Calle Escalinata) for over two weeks. I cannot say enough about the fabulous management. I would recommend this management group and this particular apartment to friends and family and we will definitely use this group whenever we are travelling to a city where they operate. This particular apartment has a wonderful location--right near a Metro (subway) stop (Opera), a fabulous market (Mercado San Miguel), shopping (Calle Mayor, del Sol, Corte Inglesias department stores), lots of great restaurants, siteseeing (the Palace Real). This two bedroom, two bath apartment is very well appointed--high end appliances, quality bathroom fixtures, nice furniture, hardwood floors, comfortable beds, french doors. The decorating is very nice. The unit is up a flight of stairs (there is an elevator but we really only used it with our luggage). We were very impressed with the concierge service that is included with the rental. They helped us with tickets to Othelo, a wine tasting tour, restaurant reservations, bullfight tickets, transport to and from the airport, suggestions on the best routes to travel to other cities. They were very, very polite and helpful. So few people speak English in Madrid that we found ourselves using their wonderful services more than we anticipated. Madrid is a lovely city. But this apartment made our stay while visiting our daughter who had a summer internship here even better. We reallly felt like this was home for us for our stay. The check in process was thorough--the young man explained the operation of all appliances, the air conditioning, even the garbage schedule. He was professional and courteous. While at Escalinata we enjoyed the MadSegs Segway tour, the mercardo San Miguel, all of the museums (del Prado, Thyssen, Sophia, Naval), Retiro Park, and more! There are hair and nail salons that are quite good just down the street.

The apartment was delivered in very clean condition and they had lots of things in the apartment that enabled us to very easily keep it clean.

We would definitely come back to this apartment and are recommending it to our oldest son for his trip to Madrid.

Faded Asian decor but great location

  • 3 of 5
We stayed in this flat for five days in April. It certainly isn't as light as the photos show. The décor is somewhat faded (the owner needs to do some work on the place) but the location was terrific for accessing the Market, Plaza Mayor, the metro, Palacio Real, Puerto del Sol etc. Spain Select provides nice towels and toiletries but never showed up to deal with several problems - while we were still there. The kitchen is fine. On the whole, would recommend it - just lower your expectations.

Couldn't wait to leave!

This property was overrun with Asian decor...large pieces with no functionality. It must have been redecorated after the photos were taken because it is now black, red and with very dark lighting. We went to Madrid to stay in an Asian condo? NOT! There wasn't an area in which you could relax at the end of a touring day. One person could use the chaise and the other would have to sit upright on a flimsy white chair on a pedestal (which BTW fell off the stem and landed me on the floor with it on top of me). We tried to put the chair back on the stem and found that it had actually been TAPED back on at some point. In addition, there was not one single mirror that I could use to put on my makeup nor my husband to shave...design seemed more important than the comfort of the traveler who paid a substantial amount.

We wouldn't recommend this property to anyone.
