Great location and well-appointed!

  • 5 of 5

Alvaro was a great host and provided excellent information before our arrival about apartment, neighborhood, Madrid. Apartment has two bathrooms which is a great bonus for three people. Apartment was as pictured and described. Loved freshness of furnishings and interior. Couldn’t ask for a more perfect location: good walks to sites ( Palacio Real, el Prado), many good restaurants nearby. Apartment is quiet and situated on a cobbled small street in lively area. Great stay and would recommend to all!

Great apartment in a great location

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent 8 night at Secretos over Thanksgiving this year. The apartment met all our needs and was very conceniently located. We could walk to most places we wanted to see and the metro was very close when needed. With the exception of the faulty lock on the main front door, everything worked great. Great place to stay in a great city!

The perfect property in the best location in Madrid

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I have just returned from a three week stay in Madrid. If we had stayed in a 5 star hotel suite we could not have had a better experience than we had by staying in the Secretos apartment. The apartment is perfectly situated right in the heart of the La Latina neighborhood, yet because it is on the 4th floor in the back of the building, it is very quiet. There is an organic market right next door, where we bought fresh milk, cheese, bread, etc. The metro and the subway are just around the corner. You are a 5 minute walk from Plaza Mayor. But most important was the care given by Angela, the owner. The apartment is beautifully appointed and maintained. Any questions I had, she was quick to respond. We had friends from England come and stay with us for 5 days, and because of the two bathrooms, complete with rain shower heads, it was not at all crowded. Secretos became our home away from home, and I would love to stay there again.
