Guestbook comments from the owner
First time travelers to Madrid....we knew nothing about the neighborhoods. We must have looked at 50+ apartments (online) prior to booking PRINCIPE TWIN. WE SCORED!! And you will too! We stayed for 6 nights. This apartment is located on Calle del Príncipe which is a very nice street. We walked EVERYWHERE! This apartment is so centrally located! We were 15 minutes from everything! Of all of the plazas, Plaza Santa Ana turned out to be our favorite and it was just around the corner!! This apartment is well-maintained and fully equipped - you will not need anything except for your suitcase. You will find coffee makers (traditional & American), juicers, pots, pans. The kitchen came in handy for our morning breakfast. There is a decent market on Plaza de Matute. Sol & Carmen are wonderful! They speak excellent English which made communicating very easy. They are extremely helpful and accommodating. If you are looking for a comfortable, convenient place to stay in Madrid - look no further! You will not be disappointed!

Most importantly, they are centrally located: walking distance to Madrid landmarks, museums, great restaurants and classic TAPAS bars, top shopping spots and Madrid transport. I live on Santa Ana square and I am there to offer a warm welcome when you arrive and help with any questions you may have.

GREAT LOCATION

  • 4 of 5
My husband and I stayed 4 nights after flying into Madrid. It is a very clean and extremely quiet apartment right next to some very popular plazas. We had no problem walking to close by destinations or taking the Metro (underground train) to travel anywhere in Madrid. Carmen, the lady in charge, was very helpful and met us promptly at the apartment after I called her. The price is excellent for this location and we would recommend it to anyone wanting a flat to stay in vs. a hotel. There are 4 flights of stairs to get up and down to our apartment; but if I can do it at age 68, then you can too! Bonnie and Archie

GREAT LOCATION AND CLEAN, BUT ALSO VERY NOISY FOR SLEEPING; SMALL MASTER BED

  • 4 of 5
Spent 3 nights in this apartment with husband and two teens. The location is very central and a great base for exploring Madrid on foot. The apartment is on a busy street filled with bars, restaurants and a grocery store right across the street. But, because of the central location, and the fact that apartment faces the street, it is also very noisy and we had issues sleeping at night from all the street noise - cars, honking, people, etc. Perhaps in the winter it is quieter than summer when people aren't congregating out on the street, but for us, it was very noisy all night long. Also, there is only one AC unit in the main room and although it wasn't hot when we were there, I could see the bedrooms being hot when it gets hotter later on in the summer - especially the back bedroom. No ceiling fans or AC vents in bedrooms.

Pros: Sol, the manager - very nice
Clean and well equipped
Central location and close to metro, great restaurants and major sights

Cons: 4th floor - no elevator - 90 steps to apartment
Noisy at night
Small master bed - American full size (husband slept on the couch as we are used to a king)

Owner's Response: Dear Guest,
The apartment Principe Santa Ana is quiet, the street has many restaurants, coffee shops and groceries but not any noisy bar around. I live on the same street with a room facing the street and I do not have any problem. On the other side there are on Madrid some noisy days, the day you arrived people were celebrating that Real Madrid soccer team won the Europe Champions league and that is the reason people were honking. Also the apartment has blinds and we always recommend to use them because they protect from any noise. You are telling me that you did not need to use the A/C unit because It was not very hot. Do not worry the A/C is very powerful also in summer.
You told me that you have at home a king bed, for that reason I offered you a bigger and more expensive apartment with a king bed because as I advice you Principe has a queen bed on Master bedroom. You declined the offer. Thank you very much for your time wrting the review and I am ver happy that you enjoyed Madrid.

COMFORTABLE APARTMENTS. GOOD LOCATION.

  • 5 of 5
Some family members and myself had the pleasure of staying at Principe Santa Ana from 23rd April to 27th April and at Urban Santa Ana from 27th April to 1st May 2014. Both apartments are clean, bright, comfortably furnished and fully equipped, where everything works incuding wi-fi. Both apartments are within easy walking distance of Plaza Sol Metro Station, of Plaza Mayor, of Museos Prado, Reine Sofia and Thyssen-Bornemisza. One can use the local Madrid Hop on/ Hop off Madrid City Tour Bus to visit and view the many buildings and sights of historic and architectural interest or use the Metro to visit Palacio Real De Madrid or experience a Real Madrid football match on its home grounds! A local supermarket is conveniently located beside both apartments as are the many bars and restaurants - I particularly enjoyed a visit to the quaint Taberna Pompeyana near Plaza Santa Ana where they show their appreciation by a ringing of bells. We were assisted by Carmen on our our 9.00 pm, late arrival and Carmen and Sol who are fully fluent in English were most helpful in providing information and assistance on request throughout our visit to Madrid. I would have no hesitation in recommending Principe Santa Ana and Urban Santa Ana to others visiting Madrid and would hope that we might return at some time in the future.

INCREDIBLE, GREAT LOCATION, AMAZING VIEW!

  • 5 of 5
What a wonderful place to stay! Where to begin?? Well firstly the apartment looks gorgeous, the moment you open the door....wow! Everything was provided, The apartment was spotlessly clean, and the beds very comfortable. Just across the road ( literally ) there is a supermarket and a pharmacy. Public transport is only a very short stroll away. In all honesty I have to say that we would definately stay there again, without hesitation. Sol was extremely easy to deal with, I even called her on the way to the apartment to get directions for the taxi driver!! An overall fabulous experience!!!

AUTHENTIC, COMFORTABLE AND MEMORABLE STAY

  • 5 of 5
We are a family of 5 (2 parents, 3 teenage children) from Australia who chose an apartment to experience living like locals in Madrid. To ensure that our experience would be most successful, we chose to stay with Carmen in his beautifully appointed and perfectly located apartment. This option worked really well for us from the beginning right through to the end of our stay. The initial steps in arranging our stay went very smoothly as Carmen is fabulous to work with. The apartment included a kitchen that allowed us to comfortably cook family meals, and a lounge room that enabled us all to enjoy relaxing at night if we didn’t go out (it was mid winter). The apartment was very warm and quiet at night. We had travelled a long way, were tired and hungry (typical travelers!). On arrival we were welcomed warmly by Sol and made to feel at home straight away. I found the location of their property as a massive highlight on Santa Ana Plaza. (Centrally located between Royal Palace and Museum District). We could walk to one area...come back to the apartment and easily then head out again. I regarded it as excellent value and look forward to our next opportunity to visit again.

LOCATION!!!!!

  • 5 of 5
Location, Location, Location!

When I'm travelling I spend little time in my accommodation except to sleep. In Carmen's apartment you can do that beautifully. For a City Centre apartment it is wonderfully quiet.

This is a 2 bedroom apartment and I thought the photos and description were quite accurate and offers very good value for money. The apartment was very clean, well equipped (fast wifi), cute (2 balconies to Principe street), quiet and well situated (walking distance to the main train station Atocha Renfe and many sites such as the wonderful Retiro park, Plaza Mayor and Prado)

Sol was very accommodating and met me even when I turned up a little early!

The stairs? I'm in my 60's and if you can't walk up 4 flights of stairs then this is a good way of helping you get a little fitter.

SANTA ANA APARTMENT. Street del Príncipe 16. Located on the well known Santa Ana Square, this is the perfect place for those who are willing to stay in the middle of Madrid´s historic and turistic centre. Although the apartment is surrounded by the most centric Metro stations, getting on the metro can be avoided. Within only a few minutes walk you can reach the main Museums (Reina Sofía, Prado, Thyssen), the most visited and emblematic turistic sites such as the Plaza Mayor, Puerta del Sol, Palacio Real or the Gran Vía –something like Madrid´s Broadway where you can find lots of theatres and cinemas- and neighbourhoods such as La Latina, famous for their cultural and night life. Just cross the main door, walk any side down the street and Madrid is all there!

Notes:
There are a huge number of things to do in Madrid, but it is often the famous Madrid shopping streets that lure people into renting Madrid accommodation. The fashion boutiques and local craft shops which adorn the central business district mean that shopping holidays in Madrid are never far from the top of the list for shopping destinations. The huge range of styles and cuisine of Madrid restaurants also helps to keep energy levels high, and fantastic cooking courses lasting between a single session and a whole week can easily be arranged. The medieval centre of Madrid hides many fantastic monuments. Those taking a Madrid weekend break are best staying in accommodation close to the historic centre, as there is so much here that you can fit a huge amount into just a short Madrid city break. The ‘big three’ museums in Madrid, the Prado, Thyssen and Reina Sofia, hold famous collections of art, and tourism in Madrid is often centred around the Puerta del Sol right in the city centre.
