Puerta del Sol ( XVIII century) is now Madrid's most popular central square among locals, where main events take place year round (as celebrating New Years Eve).

The heart of the "old city" or what is referred to as Austrian Madrid. Adjacent to the square is the Preciados Shopping District.

Many restaurants, cafés and bars nearby and just a short distance away is the Plaza de Santa Ana, where there are many relaxing terraces for outdoor dining.

Gran Via, just 2 minutes up the street, embodies a century of Madrid's history. You will find large cinemas halls, elegant hotels, and lots of grand architecture along this vibrant avenue. Just off Gran Via, Fuencarral street is the trendiest Shopping District.

As the geographic centre of the city, the Puerta del Sol has excellent metro and bus communications, and the Atocha train station is a 20 minute walk or just three metro stops away. There is a fast connection from the airport to Sol. Once there, you won't need public transportation to getting to the apartment, or most attractions.

WALKING DISTANCES to some landmarks: 

-Sol Square: 1 minute.

-Fuencarral street: 3 minutes, the trendiest Shopping District.

-Shopping at Gran Via Avenue: 2 minutes. 

-Royal Palace: 6 minutes. 

-Relax at Sabatini Royal Gardens: 6 minutes. 

-Opera Theatre: 5 minutes.

-"Museum Mile": 10 minutes.

Based on the fact that the apartment is located in the heart of the city, you can expect a bit of lively noise It is the famous "Madrid alive". But you will also have the benefit of going to principal places and things you "must do" walking.

Nice apartment, not keen on immediate environment

  • 3 of 5

The apartment was quite comfortable, although I found the sleeping area too claustrophic for 2 people, and I landed up sleeping on the sofa bed. There was a nice lounge area. The apartment was very central, but the downside was the noise. We were aware of this when we booked. However, we were not expecting the seedy local environment - Sorry to say this, but I don't think this would be a good place for women to stay on their own.

Great choice

  • 5 of 5

This is the second time we have stayed at this property during the busiest weekends of the year. It's convenient, close to everything like restaurants, shops, transportation and places of interests. Everything is within walking distance. The unit is complete and has everything you need including lots of windows and A/C if it get's too hot. Great place period!

Great central location in Madrid

  • 4 of 5

My wife and I stayed at this apartment for 3 nights in May and we enjoyed ourselves. The apartment is right on a central pedestrian-only street in the Plaza del Sol area and it makes walking around Madrid easily accessible to most of the main sights. The Metro is only half a block away and very convenient to the train station and other parts of Madrid. The apartment is on the 2nd floor and is easily accessible by stairs or elevator. Its cute and cozy and it comes with a small kitchen, which includes a washing machine. Madrid residents seem to stay up till the wee hours of the night, especially on weekends, so pedestrian sounds can be an issue if you are light sleeper, but the owner nicely furnishes ear plugs for guests who might need them. The booking and coordinating process with the owner and her apartment manager were easy and greatly appreciated.
