Madrid City Center Plaza Mayor. Bright and quiet.
average rating of 4.85 based on 20 reviews

Excellent location

  • 5 of 5

Located close to Metro and within walking distance of many tourist sites. Street is quiet but there is lots of energy nearby. Apartment is clean, attractively decorated, has quality linens, great appliances (washing machine a real plus) and all the kitchen utensils one could need. Elevator also a plus. We were very happy for two weeks in this apartment. Owners supply plenty of information regarding grocery stores, restaurants, and sightseeing.

Beautiful Flat, Great Location

  • 5 of 5

The flat was amazing. It's beautiful and my husband (who doesn't normally notice these things) was so impressed with the decorating. The bed was very comfortable and it was great having a washing machine. The location was ideal as well. 5-20 minute walk to most sights and one street away from the best restaurants. If you have time, go to the Wild Marlin. The bartender is amazing and the Mojito's are the best!!

Great Location!

  • 4 of 5

The property was in the best location in the Latin Barrio of Madrid. There were many of the must-see sights within walking distance and many local restaurants with local food. The only drawback was the four flights of stairs to get to the property! This is being rectified by the elevator being installed in the next few weeks.

If you want a fun time and an amazing apartment, THIS IS THE ONE!!!!

  • 5 of 5

Let's start by saying that Ángela is a wonderful person, she help us get around with directions, suggested restaurants and places to go for tours, where the Metro is and was willing to help us in any way.

The apartment is STUNNING!! Really clean, organized and in the right spot, so close to everything, like bars, restaurants, clubs, anything!! I love food so it's so close to San Miguel Market and many other places to eat. I would recommend this place to ANYONE! My favorite place so far!!!

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.
