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.

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.
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!
We stayed at Hector's apartment for 3 nights in February. All the pictures shown are true. As others mentioned, apartment is very quiet and perfectly located. Hector is very responsive and his apartment is well cared for. By far, this was the best experience I've ever had renting an apartment for a holiday! Thank you Hector!
Absolutely 5-star in every way. Hector and Anna are tremendous hosts and thought of every detail. Everything was perfect.
We stayed at Hector and Ana's apartment for five nights in in mid-November. The pictures show the apartment exactly as it is, and it has everything you could possibly want. The location is fabulous - ten minutes walk to the Prado, Thysen, and Reina Sofia museums, and about fifteen minutes walk to the Palacio Real. The Plaza Mayor is a short distance away and there are countless restaurants, bars, and shops within minutes. Even though Las Huertas street is a busy street, the apartment is very quiet. It was wonderful to return at the end of the day and settle into the comfort of this apartment. Hector was very responsive to all our requests and we highly recommend this property for a couple who wants the convenience of an apartment as opposed to a hotel room. We generally had breakfast in and the kitchen was fully equipped, nothing missing. There were even condiments such as salt, pepper, several different spices, olive oil, sugar, and other basic things, which was very helpful. El Corte Ingles supermarket is at the Plaza Mayor so you can quickly walk there and pick up anything you can imagine, plus there is a small grocery just a block or two down the street. We have rented apartments in many different places and this one deserves five stars.
The apartment was just as described by the owners. It was very well equipped. The location in central Madrid could not have been better. It was in the middle of everything but was very quiet since it faces a courtyard instead of the street. We walked everywhere and it was only about 10-15 minutes to all the great sites of Madrid.
My wife and I stayed here for a week. We concur with all the previous enthusiastic reviews of this apartment. We can't fault it. Someone suggested that the bed needed improvement. We strongly disagree. It's an excellent mattress and we were very comfortable. There is no room for an extra large bed and we enjoyed being more than usually close! This is an owner who really cares and has put great thought into providing much more than is usual.
Owner met us at the apartment - very thorough re apartment operations, friendly, caring. Apartment extremely well equipped, clean, modern, great location! Wifi reliable, parking close by. Hard to fault! Fairly priced. Only constructive advice is maybe a bed upgrade. Just loved it!
