Do you have a question about this home or the local area?

Simple and practical, this home may not have much in the way of entertainment or flashy amenities, but it offers a great location from which to explore Madrid’s sights. A short walk from the Royal Palace of Madrid and within easy reach of Plaza Mayor and Gran Vía, it’s a central, functional base for those looking to spend most of their time venturing about the city. When you are at home, however, you’ll find a cheerful feature wall in the open-plan living area and a handy dining nook for when you’re not out sampling the local tapas bars. And while the main bedroom is a little cramped, the home has the benefit of two bathrooms – certain to speed up any morning ahead of a busy itinerary.

Home truths

    There's no lift here, so you'll need to climb stairs in order to access the apartment

    This host does not accept bookings from groups of young people

    Given the home's central location, you may hear some street noise

    The home's decor is a little dated and on the basic side – those looking for a more characterful stay may wish to look elsewhere

    There's no desk here, but the dining table can double up as a laptop-friendly workspace if needed

    There's not much storage space here, so you may want to pack light

    The main bedroom is a little cramped around the bed

    The building's entrance is communal

    We recommend skipping the car and exploring Mardid on foot or by public transport instead

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.
