Stately, sophisticated, stunning! Words cannot come close to describing this exclusive 3 bedroom and 3 batrhoom, 280m2 property in the heart of Habsburg Madrid, with views over the Royal Palace and the Plaza de Oriente.

The space

Some experiences are simply unique, and this is one of them: the chance to enjoy an exclusive apartment, in a stately and historic 19th century building, part of one of Europe’s architectural benchmarks, Madrid’s Plaza de Oriente.

Generous in its proportions, beautifully decorated, and with impressive views over the Royal Palace and the Plaza de Oriente, this stunning property oozes joie de vivre and will delight the most discerning travellers. Almost 300m2 of living space, cleverly distributed into a large living area and three large bedrooms providing the degree of privacy, comfort and facilities you would expect on a luxury holiday, whether you are travelling with friends or as a family.

Inside, the apartment is spacious, bright and well proportioned, affording warmth, a sense of balance and a classical atmosphere. The property’s structural details are optimised to great effect, with its stately air, high ceilings, original wooden floors and magnificent balconies, with stunning views, and wooden inner shutters and surrounds.

All the rooms in the house are bathed in natural sunlight, providing the whole with a cheerful atmosphere, a sense of space and calm. Certainly a house to be lived in to the full!

A home for living and entertaining indeed. Access to the building is already imposing, the beautiful external façade leading to a large entrance hallway with marble floors, wooden carpentry, a wooden staircase with wrought iron banisters and wood handrail, and a lift. The building has its own personal caretaker.

And so on to the property itself, on the second floor, where the large hallway leads you to the rest of the house.

The living area has a dining room, living room and library, all communicated through generous open wooden frames which provide a sense of order and space. The balconies, with original white-painted woodwork and stunning views over the historic settings on the outside, share centre stage with the exquisite interior décor of aesthetic refinement, with touches of classical, modernist and French styles, and sumptuous textiles and upholstery. The result is a serene, comfortable and aristocratic atmosphere, a feeling of savoir faire, buckets of personality, and a nod to 21st century living whilst fully respecting the property’s original classical essence, in keeping with its palatial surroundings.

The main feature of the dining room is a large dining table for ten, the perfect host for that perfect evening, in connivance with the Royal Palace which can be gazed upon as you dine. The living room has a sitting area and several charming reading corners.

The kitchen is spacious and equipped with all the necessary facilities for entertaining, or enjoying a quiet breakfast.

A corridor leads to the sleeping area, with two double bedrooms, both en-suite.

The master bedroom is set apart from the other two bedrooms and has its own balcony, a magnificent double bed, reading area with bench and two comfy chairs, a separate dressing room with wood-panelled walls, large wooden cupboards and a veritable ladies’ boudoir leading to a full en-suite bathroom.

The second bedroom has a double bed and en-suite bathroom, as does the third bedroom, which additionally boasts views of the Royal Palace.

There is a fourth room equipped with TV and a sound system, a sofa bed and work table. The perfect working space, a quiet sitting room, or even an additional bedroom.

The historic quarter of Habsburg Madrid is one of the city’s main attractions. The Plaza de Oriente is part of a historical site comprising the Royal Palace, the Sabatini gardens, Campo del Moro and the Opera Theatre, all important architectural landmarks from the Habsburg era. The Plaza de Oriente opens the way to other sites and places that cannot be missed on any visit to Madrid: the Plaza Mayor, the Almudena Cathedral, Plaza de la Villa, calle Mayor or the Encarnación Monastery. Immerse yourself in culture by taking a short stroll, or a short bus or metro ride, to one of the city’s many famous museums, or visit the “in” places, chic restaurants or shopping areas in Madrid’s vibrant city centre.

Please note: Only the master bedroom and the TV room are fitted with air conditioning, the rest of the rooms are fitted with ceiling fans.

This home has absolutely stunning views of Palace Royal. Probably the best. Music plays beautifully outside of the apartment, which made the stay that much more cultural. The home was so spacious it fit my family of 5 more than comfortability. The location is very central and the stay we had was great.

Absolutely incredible. I don't think I'll be able to stay anywhere else next time I'm in Madrid. If the stunning views of the palace aren't enough the apartment is huge, has tons of amenities, and is in a prime location in the center of the city. Karen was very helpful explaining everything when we arrived and left detailed information about the location for us to use during our stay. Stop reading this review and book it, you won't regret it.

What a view! No doubt the best part of the house is its view! You will be in front of the palace and next to the Opera! The whole area is great. Near from everything. I only needed to get a bus once. The kichten is great, the common areas are beautifull and the rooms are very nice. You will only find problems if you are too allergic to dust. It is not that the house is dirty, no!! far from that! But there are huge amount of books in the house. Basically every room in the house has books and as beutifull and fun as they are they get dusty... But if you have no allergies or have just a little bit you will find no problem at all. It´s a great experience to stay in this house!

If you are interested in historic, elegant and upscale living in the heart of the city, this beautiful, spacious apartment is for you. Full of personal treasures, artwork and refined furniture, this apartment is ideal for the business traveler seeking respite from the tedium of small, predictable hotel rooms. With its stunning view of the Royal Palace from its several balconies, the apartment is the perfect setting for romance (especially honeymoons). While full of antiques and collectibles, the apartment is equipped with a modern kitchen and bathrooms. I'm not sure the apartment is suitable for young, energetic children, but for grown ups looking for an exceptional experience of Madrid, the apartment is ideal. The metro is literally around the corner (as are buses and taxis), and the area has many great restaurants. I cannot speak highly enough of Karin, the host. She was kind, gracious, extremely generous and helpful to me during my stay. I was impressed by her professionalism and caring - and the extraordinary beauty of this apartment. I will definitely be back!

This is a very large and well appointed apartment. The description and photos in the listing provide an accurate overview. The apartment was very clean, and Karin had stocked the refrigerator with a few staples before we arrived. There is an elevator in the building, but there is a half flight of stairs from the elevator stop up to the apartment. The apartment is located right next to the Royal Palace. The view from the apartment windows in spectacular both day and night. The location is very convenient. There are many restaurants and shops in the area. All of the tourist attractions in central Madrid are within walking distance although it is a pretty good hike to the Prado area. There is a Metro station within a block. This apartment is a bit expensive, but considering its size, amenities, and location its is a good value, and we would definitely stay there again if were in Madrid again.

Basically, we were delighted with the apartment, old fashioned, comfortable, with lots of space, a basically well equipped kitchen and a wonderful view. An excellent neighborhood from which we could walk virtually anywhere in the city with a great taxi stand (there were always taxis there!) on the occasions where we were too tired to walk or the weather discouraged us from doing so. Any time we had a problem, the host could be reached and was very helpful.

Our small agency was created by two people: Karin Wallis, half English and half Swedish has lived most of her life in Madrid and Nono de Barco, 100% Sevillano down to the marrow, has lived in Seville all of his life. We created the agency as we wish to do something different: take peoples charming homes and transform them into rentals, keeping the magic and charm the owners created when they built their home but at the same time making it comfortable and adequate for our clients such as giving them plenty of empty cupboard space, ensuring the only food in the fridge is the one of our welcome hamper and making sure everything is working correctly and is sparkling clean so that when you arrive, the property will feel like instant home to you too. There are no two properties alike, nor are there two guest exactly alike but we do trust we will have the right home for you.
Nuestra pequeña agncia fué creada por Karin Wallis, mitad inglesa y mitad sueca ha vivido casi toda su vida en Madrid y Nono de Barco, 100% Sevillano hasta la médula, ha vivido en Sevilla toda su vida. Creamos esta empresa dado que queríamos hacer algo diferente: transformar la acogedora casa de un propietario a una propiedad para alquilar manteniendo la magia y el encanto que los propietarios metieron en ella pero a su vez adecuándola para que sea cómodo para nuestros clientes. No hay dos propiedades iguales, ni hay dos clientes exactamente iguales pero confiamos en tener una casa de su agrado.
