Why Alvaro chose Madrid City

Being Madrid my home city, I always wanted to have an apartment to return to. I have been living abroad for the past 7 years, and I bought this apartment in the most charming and authentic area of the city. This apartment will make you feel at home.

Wonderful apartment in La Latina

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was exactly as described and the location is within walking distance to all major sites. Everything you could need was provided, including lots of kitchen gadgets, basic pantry items and paper towels. The owner even supplied cold drinks in the refrigerator for your arrival. The steps are quite easy to manage and the elevator is currently being installed. We tried several of the recommended restaurants and all were delicious. I highly recommend this property to anyone traveling to Madrid.

Location idéale pour découvrir Madrid

  • 5 of 5

Ce logement très confortable est l'idéal pour découvrir Madrid. Situé tout près de la place Mayor, tout peut se visiter à pied. Le plus c'est que ce logement se situe à côté de la calle Cava Baja qui abrite une quantité importante de bars à tapas où les Madrilènes se retrouvent le soir, il est donc agréable après la fatigue de la journée de ne faire aucune marche pour se retrouver devant un verre et quelques tapas. Le logement est, malgré la vie de quartier d'un calme absolu. Vous pouvez louer ce logement sans la moindre hésitation et si vous n'êtes pas satisfait je vous invite à vous remettre en cause.... car il n'y a aucune critique à formuler.

Wonderfully quiet place in a bustling environment

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this apartment for three nights in August 2016 with a family of four. Alvaro, the owner of the apartment, provided us with very good information about the apartment and the neighbourhood. He was very helpful in all respects.

We very much liked the apartment in all respects. It is wonderfully decorated, and very well equipped. The beds are very good, and so are the two (!) showers. The apartment is located in a very nice neighbourhood, and is within walking distance from Plaza Mayor, Puerta del Sol, the royal palace and Madrid's three main art museums (Prado, Reina Sofia and Thyssen-Bornemisza). There are many nice restaurants in the nearby streets. Despite the fact that the apartment is located in a very lively area, it is very quiet. The only thing that might put off some people is that the apartment is located on the fourth floor. In all aspects, this apartment would be the place to return to when visiting Madrid on another occasion. It is the ideal place for people who are visiting Madrid for a few days and who don't want to stay in a hotel.
