Notes:
Staying here is like being in a micro light, quiet, clean air and color, in the heart of Madrid. When family and friends visit us, we crossed the street and we were in the "Parque del Oeste", admiring the "Temple of Debod" and beautiful views; without realizing you are in "Square Spain", you go through the Senate building and you venture by the "Sabatini" the "Palacio de Oriente" (vs. "Royal Theatre") and the "Catedral de la Almudena". Later the viaduct and left the "Main Street", the "Town Square" Ayuntamiento de Madrid, then you enter "Plaza Mayor", and salts to the "Puerta del Sol". You raise the busy pedestrian street "Atlantico" and run "Gran Vía (Callao)". If you turn left you go back to "square Spain, c / Princesa, Palacio de Liria," or you're still ajando for "Gran Vía" to "Plaza Cibeles and Puerta de Alcalá". In less than an hour you know move around Madrid. You stand and you can see in detail what interests you most.

Nice, comfortable, and great location

  • 5 of 5

There is a lot to love. The two-bedroom apartment is nicely decorated and the kitchen is fully equipped. I spent several weeks there this summer with my husband and daughter, and we were very comfortable there. It is quiet, which is rare for Madrid (the windows open to an interior yard), and we were very grateful for the brand new air conditioner. The apartment is located in a residential neighborhood near the Parque del Oeste, where my husband went running every morning. It is near supermarkets, restaurants, and bars. Although there are several bus and metro lines within a few blocks, it is close enough that you can walk to many tourist attractions. The owners, Pilar and José Luis, are super nice. They were incredibly helpful both before and during our stay. We are most certainly coming back.

Perfect location

  • 5 of 5

We very much enjoyed our stay in the apartment. It was clean, quiet and sunny and the location was excellent, right next to a beautiful park, and within a 15 - 20 minute walk to Puerta de Sol, the heart of Madrid. There were also 2 metro stations nearby as well as bus stops., lots of cafés and restaurants as well as food stores and an assortment of other shopping venues.

The owners were also very kind and accommodating.

Great Stay in Madrid!

  • 5 of 5

The owner was very helpful in coordinating our arrival and helping us with long term parking while in Madrid. The flat had many great books with information about the area. It was a convenient location and we were able to walk to all of the great places to see. It was clean, safe and secure with convenient shopping for groceries within a block.

Would definitely stay there again!

This is an excellent place to stay.

  • 5 of 5

Jose was there to greet us on our arrival and provided valuable information about the apartment and the neighborhood. The apartment has everything a traveler needs - and it all works, including the elevator. The apartment is beautifully maintained and very comfortable. The neighborhood is quiet and offers some restaurants and stores that are worth visiting.

The Metro stop is just a few blocks away and runs quite often.

I would highly recommend this apartment to a friend.

Very beautiful and cozy apartment!

  • 5 of 5

I was in Madrid on business and it was great to come "home" every night! The location was fantastic. I was able to walk around the park and walk to SOL. The metro station was also close by. The apartment was very comfortable and had all the amenities I needed to cook good meals.

Really enjoyed my stay.

Lodging Experience in Madrid, Spain - Location: Calle Rey Francisco between Ferraz & Pintor Rosales

  • 5 of 5

I planned my vacation in Madrid, Spain and it's surroundings, along with two additional family members/travel companions, during the first week of November, 2016 (after a 23-year hiatus) & decided to opt out of the traditional hotel reservations process & instead use the Homeaway platform for my lodging needs, mainly to experience a more local vibe & away from areas more popular among tourists. In summation: it was the best decision I made and highly recommend it. It gives the "immersion into the local culture" a completely new meaning, in a very positive sense.

I reserved the apartment earlier in the year as I planned my entire vacation in Spain (spent some time in Andalucia prior to my arrival in Madrid) & communicated with the hosts, José Luis and Pilar, several times via Homeway as well as with "Whatsapp" on several topics from lodging-specific (i.e. ammenities), proximity to public transportation/city center, & dining options in the area. Not only did the hosts provide (by the way, in a very timely fashion) the answers to all of my questions, they also generously made several recommendations on places to visit & restaurants to dine in. On the day of arrival (from one of the major train stations as I was coming from the south of Spain), José Luis was present & on the lookout as he greeted my travel companions & I outside the apartment approximately a block away just to make sure that we were O.K. & whether we needed any help carrying our luggage (again, wanted to experience the use of the metro system). We arrived shortly after at the apartment & as I was settling in, José Luis sat with me to go over all of the fine details of our stay - access to WIFI (very important), use of appliances, folder with extensive list of goods & service providers (markets, restaurants, pharmacy, clinic, etc.). The apartment itself was very clean & accommodating to our needs - located on the 5th floor of the building & with an elevator/lift. The building is located in a very quite neighborhood, surrounded by plentiful dining choices & steps away from the beautiful "Parque del Oeste" (very important to me since I like run in the mornings).

In summary, the apartment was perfect for me & my travel companions; more importantly, the host went above all of my expectations. José Luis is a gentleman & simply a Class A individual. I highly recommend this place & host for anyone planning to spend some time in Madrid. I surely will be back. ¡¡Gracias José Luis y Pilar!!
