Madrid Center Apartment Rental Photos and Description
This impeccably decorated five-star property offers its guests the unique opportunity to reside in the historic building of Madrid's Plaza Mayor. Constructed in the early 17th century, and restored in 1790, the Plaza is the heart of the "old city" or what is referred to as Austrian Madrid, and it is perhaps the most beautiful plaza in Spain. This apartment offers visitors a luxury accommodation with three balconies that look out onto the Plaza Mayor itself, as well as easy access to the city's most famed, central sights. Within walking distance are both the Royal Theatre and the Royal Palace, as well as the charming, turn of the 20th century market of San Miguel. Turning in the other direction, guests will find the popular Plaza de Santa Ana where they can sit at a terrace or just minutes away they will find themselves in the heart of Madrid's tapas district on the Cava Baja. The apartment has been recently refurbished to a standard that reflects the importance of its location. Original details have been restored and attention has been paid to every detail. This is exemplified by the living room whose four-metre high, hand-painted walls share the same colour as those of the Plaza. The décor is lavish, from the Melix pine floors, furnishings and fittings by designers such as Philippe Starck, Jacobsen and Kartell and original artwork, to its marble bathrooms and its kitchen fitted with first class appliances. Given the exclusivity of the location, this property offers a unique taste of historic Madrid from a vantage point of considerable luxury. Surface Area: 140 m2. First Floor (no lift/elevator).
