What we liked the most

  • The location is incredible, whether for transport, city exploration, views, or nightlife!
  • Not only does the apartment have an oven, which can be rare in Madrid, but also a washer and dryer.
  • It is really nice to find a shared apartment with a living room, where the tenants can spend time, and get to know one another properly.
  • If you need to take the Metro to work, you couldn't live much closer.

Neighborhood information

Retiro

Your quiet and green seclude

Overview

Artwork and rose gardens.

Crystal palaces and parks.

Living in Retiro, you have all these things and more at your fingertips.

It's home to the titanic Retiro Park. Locals call it the "green lung of Madrid." It's very designed, very elegant, and more than a little romantic. A Spanish Juliet and her Romeo have no doubt stolen a kiss on the shady path between the fir trees and lake.

It's also the best place you can go to relax, eat a picnic, stretch out on the grass and take your Saturday-afternoon siesta.

Retiro is central, but without the rush of normal Madrid life. So if you seek a quiet and beauty, come to Retiro.

What can I do here?

Shop till seven at the local boutiques.

Admire Velazquez and Goya paintings in the Prado Museum. The last 2 hours of each day, you get in free.

By now your feet will be sore, so meet your friends for dinner and drinks. Cibeles Palace is a good choice. The 6th floor is a rooftop terrace.

If it's a full stomach you're after, consider Alfredo's Barbacoa: barbecued steaks, chili con carne and juicy 250 g burgers. The meat is from bull calves fattened for 48 months. Delicious.

On Sunday you belong in Parque del Buen Retiro. It's a genteel 350-acre park, one of Europe's best. You'll find squirrels, migratory birds and 15,000 shady trees. One of them, a 400-year-old cypress, is the oldest in Madrid.

Monuments and sculptures surround you:

  • the Fountain of the Fallen Angel
  • Hercules and the Nemean lion
  • the 58-metre-high monument to King Alfonso XII

You can also row an iconic blue boat across the green waters of the park lake. Say hi to the ducks and terrapins for us.

There's a lot here.

Artistic fact

In Retiro Park, you can see the famous Fountain of the Fallen Angel, one of the only depictions of Satan worldwide. Avant-garde.

Transportation

From this location, so much of Madrid is within walking distance! However, if you are tired or need to go further afield, it is also very well connected:

  • On the Plaza, outside the apartment, you will find Opera Metro, on lines 2 and 5.
  • A short walk down Calle del Arenal will bring you to Plaza del Sol, with​ the Metro station there offering services on lines 1, 2, and 3.
  • There are several bus routes operating nearby, including three from Plaza de Isabel II.

Flatmates

  • The apartment is shared with the live-in landlord, a young man who works out of town a lot.
