This is a description of an apartment I am looking at but I have no idea if it is convenient to the city centre. does anyone know the area please?
very close to the Metro Argüelles or Moncloa. very good as it’s strategically located near demand areas such as Plaza España, Palacio Real, Templo de Debod and Malasaña neighborhood, and within walking distance around the old town of Madrid, as Plaza Oriente, Teatro Real, Plaza Mayor. And in any case it's very well communicated with the public transportation (subway or bus), from which you can enjoy a complete tour of the city and visit the main museums of Madrid (El Prado, Thyssen, Reina Sofia, etc.), and other interesting areas of the city.
This beautiful apartment is located in the neighborhood of Arguelles, very close to Square of Spain and near the University City, and reaches other fashion neighborhoods such as District Conde Duque and District Malasaña. The center of this neighborhood is a very commercial area, with El Corte Inglés as the main Commercial Centre and lots of other international shopping trades. And its nice to get lost in all its surrounding streets where you can enjoy great shopping as well as go to charming places to eat or snack, visit some hidden churches, nice squares and the beautiful Military Building, nowadays an Exhibition Museum, called Centro Cultural Conde Duque.
Pintor Rosales Avenue and Ferraz avenue are great for walking, along them you will arrive in 10-15 minutes to the Temple of Debod, Royal Palace or Plaza España. A few steps away is the funicular that takes you to La Casa de Campo park where the Zoo and Amusement Park are, and also lets you enjoy a panoramic view of the city.
