Rooms are available in this apartment next to the vast Parque del Cerro del Tio Pio, where you can enjoy spectacular sunsets and fabulous views over Madrid. The apartment itself has a shared bathroom, kitchen and living room with courtyard views. The kitchen has an oven and microwave, so you can easily cook up a meal. The comfortable sofa and chairs are super for curling up to watch TV or get to know your flat-mates. This is an ideal location if you like to live in a quiet, residential area that's close to central Madrid. In 20 minutes you'll reach Atocha station and famous Retiro park.
Football fans are in for a treat because this district is home to Rayo Vallecano. From your new home you can walk to the Estadio de Vallecas where they play within 13 minutes. You are also living on the edge of the famous Tio Pio park - an ideal spot for seeing Madrid's landmarks or having a picnic. A 5-minute walk to Avenida de la Albufera is where you'll find restaurants, shops, banks, Carrefour supermarket, the metro station and bus stops.
Your convenient and central home
Atocha is a 10-minute metro ride from the city centre. It's known for museums, restaurants and nightclubs. It's also fun, fast-paced and historical.
Because from Atocha, you can take a high-speed AVE train to towns across Spain (and beyond...). You can also take the airport shuttle and an early flight.
Atocha is Madrid's gateway to the world.
What can I do here?
Catch a train to Barcelona. (Joke.)
Go see Guernica at the Reina Sofia Museum. It's a 7-metre painting by Pablo Picasso. White, grey and black faces twist in torment, the peasant victims of state violence.
Try a bocadillo de calamares (calamari sandwich) at El Brillante restaurant. (You'll thank us.)
Take a walk in Retiro; it's a 350-acre park, one of Madrid's best. It's home to squirrels, migratory birds, and 15,000 shady trees.
Row a blue boat across the green waters of the park lake. Say hi to the ducks and terrapins.
When Saturday comes, move your body to the beat at Kapital – It's Madrid's most famous nightclub.
There's a tropical garden inside Atocha station. It has 7,000 plants from 260 different species. Diverse.
