The best Madrid Airbnbs

Cosy loft apartment by Gran Vía

This cute one-bed loft apartment is pretty much slap-bang in the middle of everything in Madrid – it’s just two minutes’ walk from Gran Vía, a thriving hive of stores, bars and nightlife that’s known as ‘the street that never sleeps’.

Apartment with outdoor terrace in the museums district

A good one for those who are planning to spend time wandering through Madrid’s magnificent museums and galleries – this one-bed apartment is near the Paseo del Prado, where lots of them are to be found. It’s also got a terrace: the perfect place to sit back with a glass of wine on those balmy summer evenings.

Swish three-bed in Salamanca

Filled with tree-lined boulevards, boutiques and upmarket restaurants Salamanca has cultivated a rep as one of the fancier areas of Madrid. And accordingly, this three-bed apartment does look very upscale indeed – although splitting the costs across six guests still keeps it very affordable.

One-bed with pool near Paseo del Prado

Another one in the museums district, this isn’t such a fancy property – but it does trump the former in one respect. While it’s pretty common for homeowners in suburban Madrid to have a pool in their backyard, it’s more of a rarity in the city proper. For those who like to start their day with a splash.

Four-bed penthouse in Chueca

A definite one to consider if you’re heading to the Spanish capital with a group of mates – and looking for a good night out. Decked out with vintage furniture and expressionist art, this stylish apartment is to be found in the Chueca area, which the hub of Madrid’s gay scene and boasts lots of vibrant bars and clubs.

Terraced penthouse in Las Letras

This two-bed penthouse is located in the Las Letras area of Madrid – which is maybe why they’ve got the big bookcase, since the district has a rich literary history (‘Don Quixote’ scribe Cervantes lived here). But it’s probably the terrace, rather than the tomes, that’ll attract you to this place.

Open-plan loft apartment

This open-plan apartment is in Lavapiés, a multi-cultural area filled with of wide variety of ethnic restaurants. We particularly like the tiled floor in the kitchenette space. Muy cute!

Mansion with huge garden area

What’s Spanish for ‘blowout’? If you want some real grandeur during your stay in the capital, look no further than this four-bed mansion. It’s opulently furnished and can accomodate up to ten guests – but the real icing on the cake here is the gorgeous garden with a pool.

Two-bed refurbed studio by Plaza Mayor

With its barrelled ceiling and exposed bricks, this place has a cosy, wine-cellar kind of vibe. You’ll find it very close to the Plaza Mayor, a busy square that’s one of Madrid’s main tourist hotspots. Not too far away either is the grandiose Royal Palace.
