LUXURY APARTMENT FOR BUSINESS OR LEISURE - MADRID CENTER

Retiro Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Apartment, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)

In the heart of the Quarter of Literature (Madrid of the Austria's).

Within walking distance from the main Madrid attractions.

Designed with a mix of modern and traditional Madrid architecture, its wooden beams on walls and ceiling account for much of the flavor of the Apartment. Built in the early 20th Century, the building has been completely refurbished in 2005.

Easily accessible by elevator even for handicapped persons (width of wheelchairs should be consulted).

In its 53 square meters, full with day light, the Apartment features a single bedroom (with a double bed and two wardrobes), a comfortable living room area (with a double sofa bed), bathroom with shower and a fully equipped kitchen.

The attractive single bedroom is partially separated from the living room by a vertical structure of wooden beams and a vertical rolling blind that provides some intimacy and comfort when the apartment is occupied by more than 2 people.

Being the only apartment on the interior 3rd floor, overlooking the central patio, you will have an unbelievable quiet environment in one of the more lively areas of the city.

In our personal web site (see listing) you can find the exact location of the apartment and the main museums and nearby attractions as well as a plan with the layout of the apartment.

Guestbook comments from the owner
We stayed here for ten days in February and can't

say enough good things about this apartment. It

felt like a home away from home. Hector and Ana,

the owners, are wonderful, and met us upon arrival.

They explained how everything in the apartment

worked, gave us great tips on places to go and on

getting around, and even helped me get my laptop

up and running. They have supplied the apartment

with everything you could possibly need for a

carefree holiday stay. I especially loved the huge

shower and the large fluffy bath towels. As

mentioned in previous reviews, the apartment is

within walking distance of many of the major sights,

shopping, grocery stores, and twenty-four hour

pharmacy. If needed, there is a taxi stand around

the corner and a metro stop a short distance away.

I am already planning another trip to Madrid next

year and will definitely stay in this great apartment!

Héctor is an experienced attorney specialized in advising foreign companies and individuals in corporate and environmental matters, who decided to explore this new line of business in order to take advantage of his in depth knowledge of the needs of foreign travellers.

I am in love with the historic center of Madrid, a lively and extremely interesting area of the city, earmarked to the central Quarter of Literature, where many of the writers of the Golden Century lived and/or worked.

You will enjoy a quiet and cozy environment in one of the more active quarters of the city. Full of daylight and amenities to make your stay unforgettable. You will confirm that reality goes quite beyond what you see in the photographs.

PERFECT MADRID RENTAL

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I have rented a couple dozen apartments in Europe, North America, and Central America, and this was absolutely the best place we’ve ever stayed. It’s an especially good choice for anyone (like us) who hasn’t been to Madrid before. The location is superb: it’s in a pedestrian zone, 10 minutes’ walk from all the major art museums (which is incredibly convenient, meaning, for example, that you can go to the Prado in the morning, come home and take a break over lunch, and then go back in the afternoon—which we did twice with the Prado, and also with the Thyssen and Reina Sofia). It’s also a 5 minute walk to the superb Anton Martin Mercado, where you can get the freshest seafood you’re ever likely to find, as well as lots of other great food. We cooked most of our dinners in the apartment (although there are also excellent restaurants nearby—try Gonzalez, in particular, for tapas). The apartment is exceptionally outfitted for cooking. Great stove top, all the right pots and pans, staples like you wouldn’t believe (so you don’t need to buy your own butter, oil, vinegar, etc.), excellent knives, and so forth. In fact, the place is astonishingly well outfitted in every respect: a first aid kit, laundry detergent for the washing machine, electric adaptors, dozens of guidebooks—you name it, they’ve thought of it. Despite the central location, the apartment is also extremely quiet. It’s in the back of the building, so there’s no street noise whatsoever. There was some neighborly noise from the courtyard, but that dissipated early in the evening, and the windows and shutters would have cancelled it out anyway. The only thing you hear are some footsteps from the apartment above you, but nothing serious. The furnishings are excellent, too: very comfortable, firm double bed; great leather couch; a nicely set-up dining area. We also loved the design of the apartment: the bedroom feels cozily separated off by a solid screen, although that can be raised to open the place up visually. Hector and Anna are wonderful people, too. They were great to deal with ahead of time—very reliable and responsive. And they’re full of useful information, as well as being friendly and good-humored. This is a truly wonderful apartment, and if we return to Madrid for a few days or more I couldn’t imagine wanting to stay anywhere else.

TOPNOTCH SPOT TO STAY

  • 5 of 5
Apartment is perfectly located in a very well kept building - up to date in every respect. Enjoyed the quiet of being on an inner courtyard. Kitchen and shower very modern. Only thing missing was a dishwasher and oven (but microwave was very adequate). Comfortable bed and great closet space. Would recommend highly.

EXACTLY WHAT WE HOPED FOR

  • 5 of 5
Location: central to many places of interest, walking distance to the Prado, Museo Thyssen, Reina Sofia, Palacio Real, much more. The building is around the corner from the Plaza de Santa Ana, but on a street with less traffic, and the apartment is faces an inner courtyard, so there is no street noise.
The apartment is clean, tastefully furnished, equipped with everything a traveler needs. The double bed and sofa-bed accommodated three family members (mother, daughter, granddaughter). We did not feel crowded. Instructions for all appliances are provided in a notebook--although we never mastered the washer/dryer, which is really a washer with air dry. Another notebook contains information about the city, recommended restaurants, etc., and there are travel books and pamphlets for the use of guests.
Hector and Ana were friendly and pleasant to deal with--available to answer questions. They have paid careful attention to every detail to make the apartment comfortable and welcoming.
The second week of my stay, when my daughter and granddaughter had returned to the USA, a friend arrived. She was as delighted with the apartment as we were. We'll want to stay here on our next trip to Madrid, and will recommend it to our friends.

PERFECT FOR ENJOYING MADRID'S SITES

Perfect for enjoying Madrid's sites

We found this an excellent, modern apartment, so well situated for visiting art galleries and churches, also for evening strolls around Plaza Santa Ana and the literary memorabilia.

Ana & Hector were most helpful in asvising us on getting there easily as well as with any technical problems we had. We hope to be able to spend another week there in the future.

The apartment is very suitable for 2 people of any age and we were surprised to see it so well equipped with all the basics we needed to start out, not only in the food line but also many brochures and maps.

IDEAL APARTMENT, IDEAL LOCATION.

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I spent the week after Christmas in this wonderful apartment. Easy walk to the Prado, Royal Palace, the tapas bars of Cava Baja. I'm a little paranoid about noise but the apartment faces an inner courtyard so it's very quiet (and we were there on New Year's Eve!) It's clearly important to Hector and Ana that their guests have a pleasant stay. This will be our first and only choice for a future trip to Madrid.

PERFECT!

  • 5 of 5
Wife and I (mid-70's) spent 12 days in the Huertas apartment in late November-a beautiful time to visit Madrid with great weather and no crowds. The apartment was really perfect; secure, clean, quiet, comfortable, fully furnished,and in a great central location and very classy upscale neighborhood. A thorough initial onsite orientation was provided. The apartment in managed by Hector is a professional, efficient, and friendly manner. We plan to return to Madrid in 2014 and hope this popular apartment will be available.
