Located in Madrid’s central Justicia neighbourhood, this practical studio-style apartment may be short on space, but it offers a prime position from which to soak up the best of the city’s sights. At full capacity, two guests will need to share the sofa bed which will make the living area a little tight. And the lack of natural light and views may not suit those looking for a more scenic stay. But for a base to drop your bags and explore nearby Gran Vía, El Retiro Park and Plaza Mayor, it’s a cosy spot that hits the mark.

Home truths

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

    At capacity, two guests will be sleeping on the sofa bed in the living area. Given the studio-style layout of the home, we recommend a total guest count of two for maximum comfort and privacy.

    Given the home's central spot, you may hear some street noise. Light sleepers might wish to pack earplugs.

    There's not much natural light here. Those looking for a brighter space may wish to look elsewhere.

    If you're travelling for work, you won't find a dedicated desk here. However, the dining table doubles up as a laptop-friendly workspace.

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