Great experience. Host family gracious and helpful. Place is sparkling, and has an excellent
location. Spacious, attractive, think it is a gem.
Wow....What a Find
If we could score higher we would. Cesar’s apartment had everything you could possibly need. The location was excellent just a block from the Prado and we walked everywhere. To plaza Sol, plaza Mayer, The Royal Palace. There were lots of bars and restaurants in the street and our favourite bakery across the road, yet it was so quiet in the apartment.
The apartment itself is spotlessly clean, the linens on the bed luxurious, the shower was wonderful and never ran out of hot water. Shower wash and shampoo were provided, along with fluffy towels.
We used the washing machine and pegs were supplied. Iron and ironing board.
We used the TV and even was able to watch our shows in English.
Ceasar left a welcome package of milk, orange juice, butter, jams bottled water and cakes and things. The kitchen was equiped with everything you would need if you like to cook.
Check in was a breeze. Ceasar lives in the building so was there to meet us and explain how everything works and where everything is and how to get there. He gave us lots of maps and books and told us about a Toulouse-Lautrec exhibition which we otherwise would have missed.
Having a car space undercover in the same building was definitely a plus for us as well.
The photos don’t do this apartment justice. It is so roomy and modern.
We would definitely recommend it to our friends.
Thank you for everything Cesar.
Clean, neat. Small, good for 2-3 people. Sofa converts to double bed. Has all conveniences. On pedestrian street with tapas bars and restaurants. Could be noisy in summer. Cesar, the owner was a wonderful host. Goes out of his way to help. Got us our taxi pickup at 4:30am. Close to many sites. 5 min to Prado, hop on hop off bus. 1 min to grocery store. 10 min to Plaza Mayor. Would stay again.
Spotless, comfy apartment in ideal location
We thought this place was perfect. Our host Cesar was gracious and more than accommodating. He stocked the place with milk, juice, breads, tea & coffee, plus maps and tour books for Madrid. The layout was super, with big windows overlooking a plaza but the bedroom in the (quieter) back. The neighborhood was charming, just blocks from the Prado and Parque de Retiro on one side, and an easy walk to Plaza Major on the other. FABULOUS restaurants — Calle de Jesus is named by Rick Steves as having the best tapa joints in town. The kitchen is minimal but perfectly functional — but we never cooked more than breakfast anyway. Highly recommended.
Excellent flat in Madrid’s centre.
Very central in old Madrid, with a good range of independent shops, bars and restaurants. Very welcoming and helpful bilingual host. He left some basics in the fridge on arrival. Very secure with concierge. A family block of flats that was very quiet within and outside. The three main galleries are walking distance. Would stay here again and thoroughly recommended for a couple who wish to self-cater and/or eat out.
This apartment is wonderful. Clean and modern, wifi worked great, shower is fantastic with great water pressure, bed is comfortable, good storage space. The location can't be beat. Easy walking distance to the major museums, Atocha train station, La Plaza Mayor, and unbelievable variety of great restaurants. We stayed here for a week (two adults and two kids) and loved it. The owner is great. He lives on the same floor, met us when we arrived, gave us a tour, and was available to answer any questions. Would definitely stay here again.
