Photos and Description of this Argüelles holiday apartment

60 m2, Stunning views from its 16th floor, 1+1 BR, 1 Bath, Amazing location

Cute and charming eclectic apartment, on the 16th floor of the well-known Meliá Hotel building, in the very heart of Madrid. Hosts 2-6 people.

Located in the best, most lively and safest area in downtown Madrid, with amazing views of the northern side of the city and Madrid´s mountain range. STEPS AWAY FROM all kind of trendy stores, restaurants, movie-theaters, and tapas-bars; just a 5-15 M WALK away from the HISTORIC OLD TOWN with unique HISTORIC SITES like the Royal Palace, the Jardines de Sabatini, the Opera House, Puerta del Sol or Plaza Mayor. Want something different? try the Debod temple, a real Egyptian Temple located right in the gorgeous Parque del Oeste.

Yes, all these places are just walking distance. But having a METRO and BUS stops literally 10 steps from the building hall, you are just 3-6 stops away from the MUSEUM TRIANGLE (El Prado, el Reina Sofia and el Thyssen), other historic or fun places, and of course...the Real Madrid´s Santiago Bernabeu Football (Soccer) Stadium! (check match schedules before booking!). But don't worry, if you are unfamiliar with Madrid and have not had the time to prepare for your visit, we will gladly advise you on how best maximize your time while visiting, and will provide you as well with a guest book with our recommendations.

60 m2 , vistas impresionantes al estar en el piso 16, 1 dormitorio más una sala con 2 sofás cama, 1 baño, increíble ubicación

Apartamento alegre muy cómodo y bien equipado en el piso 16 del conocido complejo Meliá Princesa , en el corazón de Madrid. Con capacidad para albergar a 6 personas.

Situado en la mejor zona, más animada y más segura en el centro de Madrid, con impresionantes vistas a la parte norte de la ciudad de Madrid y las montañas de Guadarrama. A pocos minutos de todo tipo de tiendas de moda, restaurantes, cine-teatros y bares de tapas; sólo a unos 15 minutos a pie del casco histórico y de lugares como el Palacio Real, los Jardines de Sabatini, El palacio de la Ópera, la Puerta del Sol o la Plaza Mayor. En el mismo barrio se puede visitar un verdadero templo egipcio,el templo de Debod ,donado por el Estado egipcio al Estado español ,que está enclavado en el precioso Parque del Oeste.

Todos estos lugares están a poca distancia pero también tenemos cerca un metro y autobús a pocos metros del edificio Melia Princesa sólo A 6 paradas del triángulo de los museos (Museo del Prado, el Reina Sofía y el Thyssen), otros lugares históricos o de diversión, y también .. .el estadio Santiago Bernabeu ,del Real Madrid CF

Pero no se preocupe, si usted no está familiarizado con Madrid y no han tenido el tiempo para prepararse para su visita, estaremos encantados de aconsejarle sobre la mejor manera de maximizar su tiempo durante su estancia y le haremos nuestras recomendaciones.

But also, you are just 15 m walk away from MADRID RIO and the 60 KM RING that surrounds Madrid. You can bike, skate or skate board, run or just walk and observe people enjoying the energetic atmosphere and amazing views of the Old Town from the Manzanares River (yes, Madrid HAS a river too).

APARTMENT DESCRIPTION: You will enjoy 60 m2 (646 sf) distributed in one MASTER bedroom with a full size bed; a LIVING room, which if needed converts into an independent bedroom for TWO-FOUR ADDITIONAL people in sofas that convert into full beds; and yes, of course, a BATHROOM with independent access from both stances, and a fully equipped KITCHEN with washing machine and dryer

WANT MORE? How about consistent hi-speed 100 MB Wi-Fi INTERNET access (YES, 100 MB¡¡) and a convenient LAND PHONE LINE for unlimited local calls? EVEN MORE? We have CONCIERGE 24h so...don´t worry about the keys¡.

So this is our suggested plan. First, enjoy a PEACEFUL BREAKFAST overseeing Madrid after after a well-deserved rest in your 16th floor quiet apartment. Then plan for the day and immerse yourself into EXPLORING this lively city during the day. Yes, most likely and no matter where you go you will be just about 30 min away from a much needed SIESTA. Recover, fresh up and then keep going to enjoy Madrid at NIGHT, one of the elements that have made Madrid the city with the largest growing number of visitors in the past 5 years.

Be ready, Madrid is truly a non-stop city. Got a better plan? Have questions? Hey...we are just one email or one phone call away :-)

About Maria y Juan Alonso

We are a family of 8, with 6 siblings and with mom and dad already in the late stages in life. We all live in Madrid except for our brother, an ID physician established in the USA since 1989. We care about people and details, and strive to provide you with a unique, unforgettable experience while in our home.

Maria y Juan Alonso purchased this apartment in 1970

Why Maria y Juan Alonso chose Moncloa-Aravaca

Our grandfather, who was a visionary, bought this property while in its blueprints. We rented long-term the apartment until our ant María Luisa needed a safe, convenient, and small apartment to retire. She passed away last year and we decided to refurbished the unit and dedicate it to a family-based short term rental business.

What makes this apartment unique

Three unique benefits: 1) best location; just steps away from multiple convenient stores, movie theaters, tapas bars, restaurants etc..., 10-15 m walk from the old town and historic sites, and just a few metro-stops away from the Museum Triangle; 2) The views from the 16th floor overseeing the north side of the city and even the mountains...what a background for a relaxed, noise-free breakfast¡; 3) we enjoy the benefit of sharing the building with the Meliá Hotel; therefore, taxis are always available at the doorstep, safety is not a concern, and we do have 24h concierge service.

Maria is an awesome host. She met us on arrival and provided everything we needed for our stay. Maria's apartment is in a safe and wonderful location. We were able to walk everywhere! The views from the apartment are amazing. After a long day of walking and sightseeing, it was great to come "HOME" and be able to relax. We were a family of four and there was plenty of room for all of us. The building has a 24 hour concierge, which is a plus. They were extremely helpful and friendly. We highly recommend this property. Thank you again Maria for the warm hospitality.

Perfect Apartment for Our Visit

  • 5 of 5

Maria was so great to work with. We were a bit early so we were able to leave our luggage in the apartment while they were still cleaning from the last guests. Great information was provided upon check in regarding the surrounding area, as well as our new towels ! The apartment had everything we needed and was very comfortable, with beautiful built in woodworking. We walked to the market and we were able to make several meals which saved money. I would definitely recommend this apartment for a family of four. Parents have the bedroom, while kiddos sleep on the hide a bed couch, which my daughter said was very comfortable. The living room has a door to separate the bathroom and kitchen, which was perfect for those who wake at different times. We had six for one night and we didn't feel crowded! Great value for the money.

Maria was teriffic. She met us on arrival and went over everything we needed to know.

The place was better than the pictures. The building was first class and secure with

Pleasant security/front desk personnel. We hope to return again and again!

The location was so perfect for seeing Madrid. We could not have made a better choice.

Maria was immediately available when we needed her. Thanks Maria!

Great place to stay in Madrid!!

  • 5 of 5

Great place to stay! Close to Metro and all the sights. We only took the Metro to and fro the airport otherwise we walked to all the sights and restaurants. The apartment is very comfortable and had a nice view to the north of the city. It had a washer and dryer which was great for light travelers.

Definitely would stay here again and Maria is very easy to work with.
