Situated in hip Malasaña with its streets filled with coffee shops, bakeries and vintage clothing stores – this elegant apartment has a fabulous location. It’s a twelve-minute walk to Plaza del Dos de Mayo, where you’ll find plenty of bars and weekend market stalls. For culture lovers, the Centro de Cultura Contemporánea Condeduque displays art in its 18th-century halls. Or, if a bit of retail therapy is more your thing, head to Gran Vía, fifteen minutes on foot. Back at this apartment, stylish monochrome striped wallpaper mingles with neutral warm hues. Take in the views over the neighbourhood with its grand architecture or relax on the cream sofa after a busy day sightseeing. Later, rustle up some pollo al ajillo with a side of pisto in the modern kitchen for dinner. There's a desk here too for when you need to catch up on some work. This home is perfect for a couple or solo traveller looking to live as a Madrileño.

About Opera y Palacio Real

This part of town has an abundance of space and is far less busy than other parts of central Madrid – the calmness of the area makes it popular with families.
