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

Situated just a few metres away from Gran Vía and Puerta del Sol, this bright studio apartment has some of Madrid’s most important sites within easy reach. It's certainly snug, but what it lacks in space it makes up for with its enviable location. Floor-to-ceiling windows, Netflix and a Playstation on hand are nice touches once inside. And your host offers a plethora of concierge services to make the most of your time here, from personal shoppers and private chefs to museum visits and wine tastings.

Home truths

    There's a sofa bed in the living area for more flexible sleeping arrangements – your host may be able to accommodate a further two guests here on request

    Given its studio-style layout, there's no separation between the sleeping and living areas except

    The dining table doubles up as a laptop-friendly workspace

    Parking in Madrid can be tricky, so we recommend sticking to the easily accessible public transport where possible – though we think the best way to see the city is on foot

    This home is in a central spot, so noise is to be expected

    Storage space is minimal here, so we'd recommend packing light

    The Smart TV is equipped with Netflix and there's a Playstation here too
