I am a former advertising creative director who loves Madrid and enjoys creating unique spaces. This is my first experience on refurbishing an old Madrid apartment, and I found it fascinating. I travelled to this kind of flats to London and Paris, and I think there's no other way to live a city and feel like a local. Fortunately, I had some really nice antiques to decorate Puñonrostro.

Paco Ruiz-Nicoli purchased this apartment in 2013

There are many nice apartments in Madrid, specially in old buildings on historic neighbourhoods. I chose to buy and refurbish this place in particular because I thought it could be special and truly unique. I looked at 16th century Madrid maps and the street was there already, the building was beautiful and even the name was funny - Puñonrostro, an aristocrat, a duke with a name that literally means 'punch in the face'. Well, it's been 6 months since I started the refurbishment, and the place is somewhere I'd love to stay if I was a visitor and I came to Madrid for a few days, a month a year. So I think I achieved exactly what I was looking for.

The flat is gorgeous. Location is perfect, 1 minute from Plaza Mayor, 30 seconds from San Miguel Square, near all the tapas bars at La Latina but with no noise, Puñonrostro is a pedestrian street. Beautiful furniture, great open kitchen, provençal style dinning table and lots of natural sunlight, a 4th floor apartment with elevator. Again, the place I'd love to stay if I was visiting this great city.

GORGEOUS APARTMENT IN THE HEART OF OLD MADRID

  • 4 of 5
The apartment was located in Old Madrid which was ideal for access to the palace and many other attractions. The apartment was very well maintained and decorated, with a great layout, including balconies which helped connect you to the city. The owner, Paco, was extremely helpful and provided a lot of help and advice to us during our stay. He tailored this to our needs, which was quite helpful with our children traveling with us. Living in the apartment was easy, fun, and exciting to all of us. Every night I could cook the kids a nice meal as the kitchen was very functional, and we (the adults) could be more adventuresome and enjoy all sorts of different Spanish foods from the very famous market that is quite close. I would recommend this property to anyone visiting Madrid - it is a beautiful, clean, lovely apartment near many good restaurants as well.

AN EXCELLENT HIDEAWAY IN THE BEST PART OF MADRID.

  • 5 of 5
I've rented apartments all over Europe and I've dealt with a lot of owners and among all of those, Paco stands out as the best - friendly, helpful and providing excellent customer service. I would rent from him again in a heartbeat.

This unit was rented for my two daughters as a wedding gift for them and their new husbands. Understandably, I wanted their trip to be perfect and this unit and Paco's kind attention made it so. He was even gracious enough to find the time to meet with me when my wife and I were in Madrid in April so we could have a look.

The apartment is gorgeous, in a quiet building on an even quieter street just steps from Mercado San Miguel. Very well appointed and clearly looked after. My children had an excellent stay. The Austrias section of Madrid is arguably the best place to situate yourself for a first visit or a return. Less than 2 kilos walk to El Prado, only blocks from the Palace, and very close to Calle Arenal which takes you everywhere. Atocha Station is also less than 2 kilos away on foot in case you're up for a day trip to Toledo. On the edge of La Latina and very close to Plaza Mayor, all the wining and dining you might want is moments away.

I travel to Spain each spring and frankly, when available, this apartment will be my Madrid base.

THIS WAS A FANTASTIC STAY.

  • 5 of 5
We spent five nights. The property was very well appointed with nice furnishings and appliances, and it was well maintained. It is located in a quiet neighborhood but near the Plaza Major -- access to lots of shops and good restaurants, and within easy walking distance to metro lines. Paco, the owner, met us at the apartment upon our arrival, and gave us some great suggestions, and he was available throughout our stay to answer any questions. We would most certainly stay here again.

STYLISH APARTMENT IN THE HEART OF MADRID

  • 5 of 5
This apartment is a truly special home away from home. Paco was an unbelievably helpful and thoughtful host. His English was perfect. He provided us with great food and must-see sight recommendations, as well as every amenity you could need in the apartment (hand soap, dishwasher and laundry soap). The apartment was furnished very nicely, with a fantastically fashionable but homey feel. AC and two separate bathrooms and showers were a definite plus. The location was amazing: on a very quiet street, but very near to everything (the San Miguel market, the Madrid Palace, the Plaza Mayor, everything). I would absolutely recommend this apartment to my friends and family, and would not hesitate to book this apartment again if I were to find myself in Madrid again.

FABULOUS APT IN OLD MADRID

  • 5 of 5
Beautiful, high style apartment in the heart of Old Madrid. Super Close to Market San Miguel and Plaza Mayor, easy walking distance to tapas on Calle Cava Baja and Calle de la Cava Alta, shopping, a longer walk to the art museums. The apartment is beautifully maintained, and Paco is so helpful, responsive and knowledgeable. I would definitely recommend this apartment - it's spacious, well appointed, has great style with a wonderful kitchen. And the location is quiet but in the heart of it all. We spent a lot of time in the Market San Miquel, and local tapas restaurants (Juana de la Loca was our favorite), we booked a great Flamenco dance at Casa Patas, discovered the Thyssen-Bornemisza Art Museum, rented Segways and zipped over to the river and the parks surrounding the river, took a high speed train to Toledo for a day trip. We loved Madrid and Paco's apartment is a perfect place to discover its charm.
