The apartment is next to to Puerta del Sol, right in the center of the city. It's just a few minutes away from Plaza Mayor (Major Square), where you'll find many restaurants and terraces to enjoy some tapas! If you are visiting on Christmas, you'll also see the famous Christmas Market.
Thanks to its centric location, you can go by walk to most of the main places of Madrid, such as The Real Palace, Almudena's Cathedral, Gran Vía, the museums or Sabatini Gardens. Moreover, you are surrounded by many charming places. I recommend you to visit El Botin Restaurant, the oldest restaurant in the world, founded in 1725, and just 4 minutes away from the apartment. Another lovely place is the Sabatini Terrace, where you'll find really nice views of the Real Palace and the Sabatini Gardens (it's open just in summer). I love going to rooftop bars, and "The Hat" is a really good one! It's really close from the apartment too, in Calle Imperial. El Jardín Secreto, in Calle Montera is also very nice, and finally, the Terrace of El Corte Inglés from Callao will offer amazing views of Madrid center and Gran Vía.
If you want to do something different and relaxing, you can go visit "Los Baños Árabes" (the arab baths), located 5 minutes away. Here you can enjoy different kind os massages and take a relaxing bath in this singular place.
We cannot forget about San Ginés cafe, where you can try the best churros con chocolate of the city! La Mallorquina cafe (in Sol) and El Viajero (in Plaza de la Cebada) are also pretty nice to have the perfect breakfast.
In Oriente Square, where the Real Palace is located, you will find the famous Oriente Café. Writters, poets and artists used to come here and meet regularly. Nowdays, different personalities are still meeting in this historic cafe.
you want to try a tipish spanish plate, you should go to Casa Lucio, just 4 minutes away from the apartment, in Santa Cruz Square (Plaza de Santa Cruz), where you have the best huevos estrellados of Spain!
La Latina neighborhood really close too, and it's the perfect area to have a drink and enjoy some good music.
