URBAN, PRINCE & PRINCIPE SANTA ANA. Located on the well known Santa Ana Square, at 5 MINUTES WALKING TO PUERTA DEL SOL, this is the perfect place for those who are willing to stay in the middle of Madrid´s historic and touristic centre. Plaza SANTA ANA is famous by his terraces, tapas bars and his glamorous nightlife. Although the apartments are 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 touristic sites such as the Plaza Mayor, Puerta del Sol, Palacio Real or the Gran Vía 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!!!!!!!
GREATEST TAPAS AREA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Founded on a love for the Madrid lifestyle, I am the owner of some quality apartments in Madrid’s best neighbourhoods. My apartments are perfectly located, beautifully furnished and offer all the comforts of home. 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.
CARMEN purchased this apartment in 2008
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!
This Principe apartment was our home in Madrid for 4 nights recently, and I want to give thanks to the owner and manager for making our stay very comfortable. Meeting us at at the apartment and providing us the area details in regards to restaurants, transportation, sights etc., providing a map, and explaining the intricacies of european appliances were all appreciated. The location is super as we did not use a cab or metro for the whole time and we saw it all except ran out of time to get to the Sofia gallery, but maybe next time. I will say that the steps up to the apartment provides another opportunity to stay in shape. All in all a perfect spot for my wife, 16 y/o daughter and myself to stay will visiting what may have become our new favorite city to visit!!
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
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)
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.
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!!!
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.
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!
