Apartmamentos Blume Cruz combines modern self-catering accommodation with an ideal location for exploring Madrid's historic centre. The apartments are housed in a traditional shutter-lined building in the bohemian Barrio de las Letras district, known for its literary connections (the streets and squares bear the names of the writers who have lived in the area) and lively cafés, just a few minutes' walk from Sol metro station.
Plaza Mayor and Puerto del Sol, two of the city's main squares, are within a 5-minute walk, while major sights such as the Prado Museum, the Royal Palace and Almudena Cathedral are around 15 minutes' walk away. El Retiro Park, with its ancient trees, rowing lake and glass pavilion filled with exotic plants, is about a 20-minute walk away. We recommend hiring a boat and rowing on the lake.
There's an urban feel to the 1- and 2-bedroom apartments, which feature simple contemporary décor in bright colours. All units have a kitchen, a dining space and a living area with a sofabed, plus free Wi-Fi, TVs, and tea- and coffee-making facilities.
Airport transfers, laundry services and excursions including flamenco shows and guided tours are available for a fee.
