Madrid Center Apartment Rental Photos and Description

60 m2, Stunning views from its 16th floor, 1+1 BR, 1 Bath, Amazing location

Cute and charming eclectic apartment, on the 16th floor of the well-known Meliá Hotel building, in the very heart of Madrid. Hosts 2-6 people.

Located in the best, most lively and safest area in downtown Madrid, with amazing views of the northern side of the city and Madrid´s mountain range. STEPS AWAY FROM all kind of trendy stores, restaurants, movie-theaters, and tapas-bars; just a 5-15 M WALK away from the HISTORIC OLD TOWN with unique HISTORIC SITES like the Royal Palace, the Jardines de Sabatini, the Opera House, Puerta del Sol or Plaza Mayor. Want something different? try the Debod temple, a real Egyptian Temple located right in the gorgeous Parque del Oeste.

Yes, all these places are just walking distance. But having a METRO and BUS stops literally 10 steps from the building hall, you are just 3-6 stops away from the MUSEUM TRIANGLE (El Prado, el Reina Sofia and el Thyssen), other historic or fun places, and of course...the Real Madrid´s Santiago Bernabeu Football (Soccer) Stadium! (check match schedules before booking!). But don't worry, if you are unfamiliar with Madrid and have not had the time to prepare for your visit, we will gladly advise you on how best maximize your time while visiting, and will provide you as well with a guest book with our recommendations.

NEED EXERCISE...for a change? As the apartment is within the Meliá Complex, you are allowed to use Hotel facilities such as the GYM, SPA and POOL for a moderate fee of 17 euros per day for two people (10 or 20 pass bonuses available too, which bring the price down to about 10-12 euros per day for two people). Check these out at http://www.melia.com/hotels/spain/madrid/melia-madrid-princesa/Yhi_Spa.html

But also, you are just 15 m walk away from MADRID RIO and the 60 KM RING that surrounds Madrid. You can bike, skate or skate board, run or just walk and observe people enjoying the energetic atmosphere and amazing views of the Old Town from the Manzanares River (yes, Madrid HAS a river too).

APARTMENT DESCRIPTION: You will enjoy 60 m2 (646 sf) distributed in one MASTER bedroom with a full size bed; a LIVING room, which if needed converts into an independent bedroom for TWO-FOUR ADDITIONAL people in sofas that convert into full beds; and yes, of course, a BATHROOM with independent access from both stances, and a fully equipped KITCHEN with washing machine and dishwasher included.

WANT MORE? How about consistent hi-speed 100 MB Wi-Fi INTERNET access (YES, 100 MB¡¡) and a convenient LAND PHONE LINE for unlimited local calls? EVEN MORE? We have CONCIERGE 24h so...don´t worry about the keys¡.

NOT YET SATISFIED? from a crib to a medical doctor...just let us know; no kidding, from a crib to a medical doctor.

So this is our suggested plan. First, enjoy a PEACEFUL BREAKFAST overseeing Madrid after after a well-deserved rest in your 16th floor quiet apartment. Then plan for the day and immerse yourself into EXPLORING this lively city during the day. Yes, most likely and no matter where you go you will be just about 30 min away from a much needed SIESTA. Recover, fresh up and then keep going to enjoy Madrid at NIGHT, one of the elements that have made Madrid the city with the largest growing number of visitors in the past 5 years.

Be ready, Madrid is truly a non-stop city. Got a better plan? Have questions? Hey...we are just one email or one phone call away :-)

We are a family of 8, with 6 siblings and with mom and dad already in the late stages in life. We all live in Madrid except for our brother, an ID physician established in the USA since 1989. We care about people and details, and strive to provide you with a unique, unforgettable experience while in our home.

Maria y Juan Alonso purchased this apartment in 1970

Our grandfather, who was a visionary, bought this property while in its blueprints. We rented long-term the apartment until our ant María Luisa needed a safe, convenient, and small apartment to retire. She passed away last year and we decided to refurbished the unit and dedicate it to a family-based short term rental business.

Three unique benefits: 1) best location; just steps away from multiple convenient stores, movie theaters, tapas bars, restaurants etc..., 10-15 m walk from the old town and historic sites, and just a few metro-stops away from the Museum Triangle; 2) The views from the 16th floor overseeing the north side of the city and even the mountains...what a background for a relaxed, noise-free breakfast¡; 3) we enjoy the benefit of sharing the building with the Meliá Hotel; therefore, taxis are always available at the doorstep, safety is not a concern, and we do have 24h concierge service.

GREAT OPTION FOR A VACATION IN MADRID

  • 5 of 5
This property is very well located and is ideal for a vacation stay. The owner, María, is very kind and very willing to help with information regarding the city. The apartment has a lot of attention to details. You will find almost everything you need here, from a screwdriver to extra towels or a good book to read. It is also a few steps away from Ventura Rodriguez metro station, so it is very well connected to the Madrid transportation services, making it a great option if you are also going to make day visits to Toledo or other locations around Madrid. Very nice.

THE PROPERTY WAS WONDERFUL.

  • 5 of 5
We loved the location. The beautiful view was as advertised. The property was immaculate and included a newly remodeled bathroom. We were able to walk everywhere such as the grocery store, restaurants, park and the "downtown area". The tour bus is only 2 blocks away to visit museums and other sites, the taxi was outside of the condo; you will only need the taxi to take you to and from the airport or train. When I return to Madrid, I plan on staying in Maria's condo and would difinitely recommend this condo to my friends and relatives.

HIGHLY RECOMMENDED FOR A SMALL FAMILY

  • 5 of 5
This is a great rental apartment, especially for a couple with a six month old baby, for the following reasons:

- Everything you would need for a few days is provided (hand soap, kitchen basics like oil and spices, kitchen sponges, shampoo, kitchen roll - all the little things that are sometimes not provided for rentals, but are a real hassle to purchase when you are only staying there for a few days).
- The high chair, baby cot and baby bath were provided for free, and assembled before we arrived.
- Maria spoke good English and because our flight arrived in the evening she bought some breakfast things we asked for, and charged us at cost. She was very sweet even though we were a bit delayed due to the baby.
- The bed is not kingsize, but nonetheless is extremely comfortable.
- Good powerful shower with lots of hot water.
- Two comfortable sofas, and tvs in both living room and bedroom
- Plenty of cupboard space
- Very thoughtful and helpful objects left in the flat, e.g. a granny shopper for groceries, mop and bucket
- There is a washing machine and separate tumble drier
- Lifts mean that you can get the pushchair to the 16th floor without any stairs
- El Corte Ingles and its great supermarket in the basement is located very close by. Metro station a couple of minutes' walk away. But even the Retiro/Prado and other sights right across town are just 20-30 min pleasant stroll.

A couple of things to note:
- We stayed in April - it was quite hot for us Brits (highs of 24 degrees, and up to 23 degrees at night) and we would have used the air conditioning if it was on. However, it is on a heating setting for the entire block of flats until summer so we couldn't use it. Fans were provided though.
- If your baby sleeps in a separate room, the only other room apart from the bedroom is the living room which you have to pass the kitchen to access. From a fire safety point of view we preferred to put our baby in the hallway, where he just about fitted.
- We would recommend the nearby Cascaras restaurant for informal good food. Modern setting, traditional no nonsense Spanish food, good value. Plenty of space for pushchairs too, not too bright or loud (although there are TV screens everywhere).
- There is a lot of nice furniture in the flat, so probably not ideal if you have a baby that is walking/crawling or particularly destructive.
- Beware, the Thyssen etc do not have a pushchair queue jump rule like the Paris museums! We were caught out.

BEAUTIFUL SUNSET VIEWS! GREAT LOCATION & SAFE.

Beautiful sunset views! Great location & safe.
  • 4 of 5
I would definitely recommend the apartment to anyone visiting Madrid. It is very well located, everything you need is in the apartment. The photos show all you need to know except that it is quiet, with comfy beds, a good shower, and small but well equipped kitchen. There is a great market two blocks up the street for all your dining/cooking/snacking needs.
We were there to visit our daughter who is studying abroad in Madrid this semester. It was the perfect place to stay. there was room enough for us to spread out and relax and our daughter stayed with us two nights and said the futon couch was very comfortable.
Also, if you don't feel like cooking, or making a big effort to go out, the hotel next door has excellent food and service in a pretty restaurant. Enjoy, we did!
