Centrally located in Madrid’s vibrant Lavapiés neighbourhood, this practical apartment offers plenty in the way of nearby sights, with the Royal Palace of Madrid within walking distance, as well as the lively barrio of La Latina. The space itself is compact and there’s not much natural light here. You’ll want to pack light and leave your main meals up to the many nearby restaurants due to the small kitchenette too. But as a functional base for sightseeing aplenty, this pocket-sized pad does nicely.

Home truths

    This host does not accept bookings from groups of young people.

    This is a compact apartment with limited storage space. We recommend packing light.

    Similarly, the kitchen is small so we think it's best suited to light bites. There are plenty of restaurants nearby, however.

    There's no lift here. You'll need to be able to climb stairs to reach the entrance of the home.

    The home comes with portable air conditioning units.

    While the overall design of this home is well put-together, it is lacking in natural light.

    You may hear some noise from the street and neighbours during your stay. Light sleepers might wish to pack earplugs.

    We recommend skipping the car here and exploring Madrid on foot or by public transport instead.

Local guide


About Lavapiés

Like many neighbourhoods on the rise, Lavapiés proudly displays its rough edges. The Times Magazine has recently included it in the 50 best neighbourhoods to live in the world, and it’s not hard to understand its appeal. It’s a melting pot of cultures, bravely experimenting with international influences. Lavapiés is full of contrast — some streets have already embraced a more luxurious vibe with chic boutiques and fusion restaurants popping up every month, while others are still filled with artistic squats and street vendors. It’s the ultimate antidote to boredom.
