Drawing inspiration from the scenic Congolese landscapes, this snuggly apartment presents an old-world charm with a delightful cosy ambience in every corner. Despite the apartment's central city location, the space invites guests to retreat and escape the mundane through its cosy interiors and soothing atmosphere from the moment you step through the door. Stretch out in the living area with a cup of coffee (or Spanish wine come evening time) and let calming vibes clear your mind. With earthy hues and plenty of leafy green plants, you'll feel as though you're at one with nature, even while staying in the heart of the city. With the option to cook at home or dine out, you'll get an authentic taste of Madrid by experiencing life like a local. You'll also find a convenient office space, perfect for those who will be working from home during their stay or in town on business. Between taking work calls and soaking up the city's sought-after monuments, Madrid's Trafalgar district boasts traditional shops and an array of tapas dining opportunities waiting to be discovered. So what are you waiting for? Put on your comfortable trainers as the best way to take it all in from here is on foot.

About Chamberí

Chamberi is a residential area in the Northern part of central Madrid. It used to be populated by aristocrats, which gives it its unique look and feel. It’s a cultural hub that defies conventional tourist expectations, with lots of quirky attractions – start at the Sorolla Museum and make your way to the old Chamberí metro station that’s been turned into a transport museum.
