Property description

This property's advantages are: WiFi, phone calls, a bottle of wine, a walking tour and 24/7 assistance are included with every booking!
Free Trip Planning: Why don't head off to Segovia, Toledo or Barcelona for a day trip by high speed train? We're glad to help with the tickets.
Our New Arrival for Coffee and Tea Lovers is a NESCAFE Dolce Gusto Capsule Machine.

Ingeniously designed apartment in downtown Madrid, close to the major museums, 2 minutes to subway station, recently refurbished. Access to a 150 sq.m. stunning vine covered patio full of roses, plants and small trees. Free internet WiFi and national phone calls available during the whole stay. Apartment is located on second floor, accessible by an easy stair of 30 steps - check-in person will provide help with luggage.

Fully equipped open kitchen with sitting/preparing area/bar, living room with sofa-double-bed, bedroom with 2 single beds (36in x 84in / 0.90m x 2m) that can be pushed together to make for a double king size bed (72in × 84in / 1.80m × 2m), bathroom with washing machine and spacious walk-in shower.

To access the apartment you walk through a magical green patio full of flowers and shrubbery: romantic, quiet and still just a couple of minutes to all the places of interest that Madrid offers: Prado Museum, Reina Sofia Museum, Thyssen-Bornemisza Museum, Plaza Mayor, el Rastro, Puerta del Sol, Gran Vía, several bars, restaurants, stores and entertainment venues - flamenco dance, clubs, and live show cafes.

Alternative museums like Casa Encendida, CaixaForum, Tabacalera and Matadero are strung in a 15 minutes walk radius.
Brand new and highly recommendable is Madrid Rio: the 650 ha. large and 10 km long park alongside the Manzanares river, where cyclists and families meet skateboarders and dog-walkers.

The apartment is easily and quickly accessible to the apartment by public transport: 2 subway lines (line 1 and 3), several bus stops; 4 guarded car parking facilities and a taxi stop 100 meters down the street.
The Atocha train station, where the AVE high speed train connects with several Spanish and French cities, is located within a 10 minutes walk.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2003

About the owner: With a positive attitude the world most probably will smile back at you. I'm originally from Berlin, passed through New York and Hamburg, and ended up in sunny Spain - first Madrid, now Barcelona. Am trilingual deutsch, english, español. My interests span from photography and yoga to travelling and 24/7 networking - with favourite destinations from TYO, HKG, BOS and BOG to HAV, LON, BCN and BER. When outside my city, I prefer to stay at private hosts, a stunningly efficient and fun way to connect and personalize one's trip. The inside is the new outside.

Why the Owner Chose Embajadores, Madrid, Madrid, Spain:
I lived in this apartment for 9 years and recently moved to Barcelona. With lots of experiences and recommendations up my sleeves, I am now renting out this fabulous 1BR+patio place and want to wish you a pleasant stay.

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
Telephone calls and WiFi are included in any booking. The vine covered courtyard is at your disposal, to enjoy your favourite beverage after a long day in the city. Lavapiés is a historic and authentic district, that is known for its bohemian, artistic and multicultural environment. Downhill at the Plaza Lavapiés the Carrefour supermarket and closeby Mercados Antón Martín and San Fernando provide you with groceries.
