|Minimum Stay||3 nights|
Situated on calle Carretas, right on the Puerta del Sol, this 3 bedroom apartment boasts an unbeatable location for those visiting Madrid for leisure and sight-seeing. You cannot get more central than this - Sol is the beating heart of the Spanish capital, and has been recently renovated and redesigned, breathing life into one of Madrid's most famous neighbourhoods. The streets that radiate out from the circular plaza lead to every part of the city, meaning most of the top sights and attractions are within easy walking distance. The area is vibrant and energetic, and is home to many great cafes, tabernas and restaurants. A nearby Corte Ingles department store and the art deco avenue the Gran Via both offer excellent shopping, whilst the historical districts of Los Austrias, Barrio de las Letras and Palacio are all nearby. The Sol metro and local train station is literally on the doorstep, meaning guests can experience the rest of the city and beyond with ease.
Bright and spacious, the apartment itself has been decorated and furnished in a modern style throughout and is perfect contrast to its historical surroundings. The open-plan living and dining area is the focal point of the property and provides guests with a comfortable home away from home in which to relax after a long day's sightseeing. With classic floor-to-ceiling Spanish windows running one length of the room and looking directly out onto the famous Clock Tower in the Puerta del Sol, the space is flooded with light for much of the day. Both the sitting and dining areas have been tastefully furnished in a contemporary style, with a few quirky design touches and splashes of bright colour giving them a unique feel. The kitchen is modern and unusually spacious - another small dining area is perfect for breakfast or more informal meals - and has been fully equipped with everything guests may need during their stay. Each of the three bedrooms are in keeping with the contemporary feel of the apartment, and the master bedroom is particular impressive, with a beautiful en-suite bathroom and spacious walk-in wardrobe. Elegant and spacious, this apartment is superbly situated for those looking to make the most of their time in Madrid.
This apartment was as the description indicates. We found the apartment to be very clean and well equipped. Enrique and Daniel made the reservation process easy and responded promptly. The bedrooms are large and have plenty of closet space. Both bathrooms are beautiful. The location could not be better; its centrality makes walking to most places very easy and there is a metro stop and supermarket just a couple hundred yards away. Everything was absolutely perfect but please know while the master bedroom is located in the back of the apartment and so immune from street noise, people staying in the front 2 bedrooms will hear noise from activity in Puerta del Sol (in other words, you are giving up a bit of quietness for the otherwise perfect apartment in the perfect location).
My wife and I stayed with our two teenagers for 5 nights in July. The apartment is beautiful with enough room for up to 6-7 people. The kitchen was modern and functional. We made brunch the last day we were there. The location is like being on times square but in Madrid.The windows keep the noise under control. My favorite part was looking out over Puerta del Sol and having an afternoon class of wine. We have stayed at many rental properties but this was by far the nicest and best located. Wish we could have stayed longer
