There's more than a hint of jungle inspiration in this apartment, making it the perfect oasis in bustling Madrid. With sage green walls, natural woods and even a one-of-a-kind statement ceiling piece adorned with plants, you'll find yourself feeling zen within seconds of arriving. We especially liked the record player, so you can play some vinyl as you cook, socialise or make plans for your time in Madrid. The surrounding Justicia neighbourhood is a firm favourite amongst visitors and locals alike, with its quirky boutiques and traditional tapas bars. Getting around is easy from here too – the Puerta del Sol is just a 15-minute walk from the front door, and Bilbao Metro station is even closer.
