Overview

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 :-)

About Maria y Juan Alonso

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

Why Maria y Juan Alonso chose Madrid Center

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.

What makes this apartment unique

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.

An Exceptional Jewel In Madrid indeed!

  • 5 of 5
How fortunate I was in discovering this extraordinary new listing last September as I planned a month long return trip to Spain for this current year! Having known Madrid for 40 years, it was apparent that the location of this apartment in a most secure and attractive area with several means of transportation at one's fingertips would be a priority for going to the main attractions within the city as well as going to nearby towns with ease. Writing and speaking with María in English and Spanish had been delightful and reassuring throughout the year. The apartment is appealing with its refined charm in furnishings and amenities including the washer and dryer that make staying there so convenient for short or lengthy stays. The family takes great pride in making sure the apartment is impeccable as their guests enter, their greeting is so warmly received and general points of information regarding the operation of appliances and other apartment details are explained. The location of nearby grocery stores, restaurants, cafés, specialty shops and El Corte Inglés, a large department store with anything you may need, including a supermarket are provided along with city maps, guides and excursion and entertainment suggestions, all quite informative for those new to the city. In addition, the kitchen has everything that you could need in assisting with food preparation and linens and personal and cleaning items are plentiful. The apartment is very comfortable allowing you to feel relaxed and successful as you may address your tourist plans as well as personal matters while having Wi-Fi at all times. As for the view, it's simply amazing! To see the northern points of the city and the Guadarrama Mountains in the distance every day is a gift that brings great euphoria to the spirit as you come and go during your stay. Seeing the sun rise and set will have an everlasting impression. I spent 15 glorious days in this apartment while touring the capital and its neighboring historical towns. Being based there allowed me to have a safe and marvelous visit which will be cherished for a lifetime. María and her sisters are a lovely family whose intention is to provide the best experience their guests could have in their beloved city while residing in their exceptional apartment. Their listing and photos give an accurate account of what you would encounter. Indeed, I would recommend this property to family and friends alike and look forward to a future stay myself.

Very comfortable, good location and great view.

  • 4 of 5
We had a wonderful time in this apartment which was very comfortable and extremely clean. Maria and her sister had everything one might need in the apartment, which was very close to the subway station and close to all the big stores and Gran Via.There were good grocery stores nearby which was very convenient. We got to the apartment early since our flight got in after 8 AM. Since check-in was after 12, we had to wait which was hard as there was no place to sit in the apartment building and we had jet lag. We waited in the hotel lobby next door. Maria came after we texted her and rushed everything for us so that we were in the apartment very quickly. The hallway does not do justice to the apartment as it is dimly lit and not as well maintained as the apartment.
The apartment is not so near all the major sightseeing attractions but being close to the subway, it is not a problem. I would definitely want to stay at this apartment again. Having an elevator although very small was very convenient as well.

Absolutely great place to stay in Madrid

  • 5 of 5
This VRBO condominium is located on the 16th floor with fantastic views of central Madrid. It is within 100 steps of a Metro station. It is also within walking distance of many of the sights of Madrid including the Palace Real. The unit itself was beautifully furnished and included a remodeled kitchen and bathroom. Maria is a wonderful hostess and everything she promised in the VRBO listing was, in fact, true. We would highly recommend this listing for a short or long stay.

This apartment was perfect!...The view was incredible and the location could not have been better. Maria and her sister greeted us and, although we were a bit early, they allowed us to leave our luggage while they finished preparing the rooms. Would definitely return to this apartment should we visit Madrid again, thank you!...happy travelers
