Characteristics of the apartment:

* Air conditioning and central heat

* PUERTA DE SOL a 15 minute metro ride

Economical rates for longer stays. Prepayment to guarantee reservation required and fully refundable security deposit required on arrival and returned to you on check out.

We supply bed linens and towels for your stay, as well as 'starter' household goods like toilet paper and paper towels. The kitchen has all the basics, pots and pans for preparing basic meals.

And here are some of the comments direct from just a few of our guests!

'We stayed in the second floor apartment on two separate occasions for a total of seven days during our month-long stay in Spain. We are a family of five (kids aged 22, 21 and 20), and we were all comfortable there. Not only was the apartment spotless, but the kitchen was well-stocked with cookware. We were pleased with the large selection of restaurants in the area (we liked Soria right up the street). A bakery on the corner supplied us with fresh bread, and a supermarket just a few blocks down was perfect for the balance of our grocery needs. Another big plus was the proximity to the museums and to Retiro Park. We also walked to Sol on many occasions, however, the metro is conveniently located just two blocks away and is easily accessed for those of you who choose not to go on foot. Suzanne and Santiago were conscientious and helpful, returning emails promptly and answering all of our concerns. By the end of our seven days here, we were sad to leave! We will definitely stay again if we ever return to Madrid!' (USA)

“Dearest Suzanne and Santi;

Just to let you know that we have arrived home safe and sound and in good spirits. Thank you for all your kind help and assistance during our visit to Madrid. Would you please send us your mailing address? Estelle would like to send you a little token of our friendship and appreciation. We just love you both. Be well. Estelle and Mel” - Los Angeles, CA,USA

“Eramos muy contento con el piso y tambien con el equipamiento...' – Lucía, Spain (Galicia)

“Un bel appartement propre, calme et confortable situé à 2 pas de la gare et tout proche du centre en bus ou métro. Propriétaire très accueillant et très gentil parlant français et anglais. La possiblité d'une garde d'enfant est très appréciable.” Florent, France

“Apartamento pequeño, recien reformado, bien situado y muy bien equipado. Relación con los propietarios impecable. Harán todo lo posible por ayudarte y hacer tu estancia más cómoda y agradable. Gracias por todo.' – Vicente, Spain (Valencia)

Both Santiago and I love to travel and explore new places. We know that finding the right location and space and the right owners are essential to a great experience. Not only do we enjoy helping our guests to gather information for their stay, i.e. sending monthly newsletters, but we like to think that we are your 'family ' while in town for whatever you might need to make your your stay a memorable one!!

Suzanne and Santiago purchased this apartment in 1996

Santiago's parents bought their first Madrid apartment here 35 years ago. Santiago and I lived here with our two small children until 6 years ago. This is 'my' neighborhood, so much so, we bought the unit adjacent to my in laws when it went up for sale a few years back! Great location, 'real' neighborhood experience and in the center of Madrid on a tree lined, no thru street!

WONDERFUL LOCATION

  • 3 of 5
We rented the apartment for the entire month of June, 2013. Can't beat the location, especially to take day trips by train, or the responsiveness of its owners, Suzanne and Santiago. On the two occasions when we had a minor problem, they attended to it immediately. The air conditioning is provided by a portable unit. The street has no outlet, but there is significant urban noise into the late night from people sitting outside and from at least three dogs whose owners leave them outside on the balconies so there is almost continual barking.

This is a pleasant, but very basic apartment more suitable for short stays or as a "base camp" from which to come and go when using Atocha to visit other parts of Spain.

The ktichen has the basics, but there are limited amounts of utensils and cookware. Anything you need can easily be obtained in the nearby commercial area.

This is our fourth VRBO rental and believe it is the only way to travel!

EXCELLENT

  • 4 of 5
My travel was with another adult. I initially found this a small and spartan apartment that underwhelmed me but after being there a couple of days it was more than adequate for two people. It could suit a couple plus a one or two small kids but I think anything more than that would be a stretch - by my standards anyway.

The location is great. We had a car (which we parked at a 24hour car-park conveniently located just a 2 minute walk away) but did not need it at all during our stay. There are shops within only a few minutes walk away for stocking up on groceries and many eating places are within a minute walk. A ten minute walk gets you to the start of the thick of things.

The hosts were very responsive from my initial enquiry to our departure. I arrived with no warning and someone was over within 10 minutes to open the place up and give us a guide - so comforting when you're stranded 20000km from home. The apartment contains the essentials you'd hope for (like cleaning gear, salt, extra linens, wifi, etc.). Everything presented clean and well maintained. There is plenty of air and light.

All in all this was a fantastic stay and I highly recommend it. Many thanks to the hosts.

A GREAT "HOME BASE" FOR SEEING MADRID

A Great "Home Base" for Seeing Madrid
  • 5 of 5
If you're looking for someplace comfortable and convenient, you cannot do better than this. The apartment is well equipped with with all the essentials and many amenities. (For women who are dubious about the quality of hair dryers in rental units, I can assure you that the one Suzanne provides is top-notch!) We walked to all of the museums, the botanical garden and the Retiro Park (a lovely place to spend a few hours). Other sights were readily accessible via the very clean and efficient Metro system, or from the Atocha train station. You will not need a taxi!

We would stay here again in an instant!

LOCATION LOCATION LOCATION!!!

This is a comfortable, basic apartment in an excellent location for seeing the main sights of Madrid. The owners were extremely helpful and quick about responding to any of our requests. The Sofia Reine Gallery was five minutes away and the Prada, an easy fifteen minute walk. This felt like a true "Spanish" neighbourhood, with grocery stores, bakeries and restaurants around the corner. It is also a five minute walk to the Atocha train station. We were satisfied with our stay at this apartment and felt that it was good value.

EXCELLENT APARTMENT - CLOSE TO EVERYTHING YOU NEED, GREAT NEIGHBOURHOOD, WALK TO MUSEUMS

  • 5 of 5
We (three adults) stayed in Suzanne and Santiago's second floor apartment for three nights in mid September. It was a great choice - and we'd happily stay there again. Communication with our hosts via email and telephone was straightforward and informative and their assistant who let us in to the apartment on the morning we arrived (befuddled from the long international flight) was welcoming and helpful.
It is an easy walk from here to the main museums - and not much further from there to continue into the heart of central 'old' Madrid. Or you can easily hop a metro or bus to get around. Bus maps are on nearly every bus stop shelter.
There's a good choice of neighbourhood shops, cafes, restaurants, bars, bakeries etc & it was fun to be part of the early evening post-siesta (or any time of the day) street scene with a drink and plate of snacks, watching the world go by.
The apartment is just as shown in the photos - clean and comfortable with everything you need to make yourself at home. And free wifi too.
We printed the google map location of the exact address to take with us - and that did help in quickly locating the Pasaje Anchora when we first arrived.
We chose this location as it was close to the Atocha station - and it proved very convenient for arrivals and departures - the airport Express Bus stops here as well as it being the main station for medium and long distance destinations.
Thoroughly recommended!
