The tall but short

Because I can handle a low ceiling.

Will I like it here?

Possibly. Are you someone on the shorter side who's looking for a loft apartment hybrid? Keep reading.

Really? Tell me more...

You'll be living in a bright, versatile space with oodles of style. Short enough to avoid bumping your head on the roof beams in the lofty 2nd living area? We got you.

We think it's ideal for postgraduates or workers who like a lively eclectic spot. You're superbly located here, there's even a cat cafe just around the corner. Meow.

Your top 3 reasons to live here:

  • You're close to Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofía, the perfect distraction on a lazy afternoon.
  • Style comes easily in this modern, open plan living space.
  • We love the amount of storage space here - bring all your jackets.

But you need to know this...

  • While you do have 2 living areas, 1 is a loft style setup with a very low ceiling so it's not suitable for aspiring basketball players or self-proclaimed giants.

And this...

  • You can smoke here, but only outside. Time for some fresh air.

Our Homechecker, Marcos, said:

“I love this property. It's got a 2nd loft style living area with a sofa bed. It's superbly located, modern and stylish.”

Give it to me straight...

This is a bright 5th floor, 1-bedroom apartment on Calle Del Dr. Fourquet, Madrid. It's a multi-level style icon with 2 living areas, one with a high ceiling for your tall friends and one with a low loft ceiling for your petite friends. Inclusive.

We think this apartment is perfect for workers and postgraduates wanting a quirky, inviting spot. With the Metro less than 5-minutes walk away, accessibility isn't an issue here. Fancy a puff? Head outside into the open air for one.

What we liked the most

  • Popping out for a strong coffee in the morning – at the cat cafe around the corner of course. Fluffy.
  • Living your best life in the modern decor – it's hard being this stylish, but someone's gotta do it.
  • Bringing all of your favourite things – like Julie Andrews, you've certainly got the storage space.

Things to keep in mind

  • Y'all are gonna be fighting guests off here – yes, it's that great.

Neighborhood information


Your eclectic and adventurous home


History, culture, an international atmosphere – Lavapiés has a lot to recommend it.

This was Madrid's Jewish quarter in the Middle Ages. Today it attracts immigrants from all over the world. You'll find a wild mix of food, art and culture here.

Do you seek adventure and diversity?

Come to Lavapiés.

What can I do here?

Do you know the true story of Snow White?

Or what links bodies and numbers?

If not, you're in luck. Because in Lavapiés, you can go to a theatre and find the answer to these and other vital questions. To get started, try La Tabacalera. It's a theatre set in an abandoned factory.

Hungry? There's a tonne of Indian restaurants here. Some are better than others. Try the Moharaj on Calle Ave Maria, 18. It's a good bet.

On Sundays, visit the Rastro Market. Buy things you never knew existed.

Go to Calle Argumosa and relax in the shade on a terraza. Or visit one of the many Moroccan tea shops – take a part of Africa home with you.

In August, go crazy at the Fiestas de San Lorenzo. There are free street concerts and food trucks! (How great is Madrid?)

Need more?...

Visit BrainBreak. Get locked in a room. Decipher the codes to escape. Feel clever.

Spanish fact

The word lavapiés translates to "foot bath" or "feet wash" in English. Immaculate.
