Great stay in the heart of the city

  • 5 of 5

This was the second time we had stayed in this very convenient apartment. When we decided to return to Madrid, there was no doubt that we wanted to return to the same place where Jose' Miguel treated us like a personal friend upon arrival and was always available if we needed him. We were surrounded by the best restaurants, short walk to Plaza Mayor, Mercado San Miguel and the Royal Palace. We even walked to the Prado. That's how centrally the apartment is located, yet, it's very quiet and having the bedroom in the back is such smart plan.

There are so many parts of the world that we still would like to see, but when we return to Madrid, this is our home away from home. Thank you, Jose' Miguel for everything!

Perfect base for exploring Madrid.

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here for 9 days, having never been to Madrid before, and couldn't have chosen a better place! It was a stone's throw from Plaza Mayor, in a vibrant street with lots of cafes/restaurants yet, as others have said, the bedroom is at the rear and consequently nice and quiet. Lounge and bedroom both have air conditioning. Jose was waiting here to meet us, despite our late night arrival, due to a flight delay (thanks Jose)! Thoroughly enjoyed our stay here, having enough time to visit Toledo and Aranjuez as well as a lot of Madrid. We didn't even use the metro, as most places are within walking distance - which you really need to do to fully appreciate this lovely city. So, if we come again, we certainly know where to stay!

Wonderful place!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I have stayed in 7 or 8 apartments while on holidays in Europe and this was the best! Fantastic location right near the centre, yet nicely quiet at night, despite being in a bustling, vibrant area. Every detail has been considered and we found the apartment very comfortable for cooking and for washing clothes too. AC was great, bed comfortable, all appliances worked well, good shower, apartment very clean - we were extremely happy all round. If we come back to Madrid, we'll hope to be in this place again!

A sweet little apartment that feels like home right away

  • 5 of 5

Although I did not interact with Jose personally (he was on vacation), the woman who I did meet was very kind and helpful. I stayed here with my 6 year old daughter for three nights and it was a perfect size for us, with most accommodations that we needed.

The neighbourhood was safe and fun and we took the City Tour every day to make it across town (a few times we missed the bus at night coming back, but the walk was doable).

I would recommend this apartment for two people, and for three or four if you don't mind really small living quarters. Everything worked fine, the air conditioner, washing machine, shower, etc. The stairs are narrow and old so make sure you are ready to climb them with your suitcases (for me this was no problem).

I cooked while we were there to save money, but there are tons of surrounding restaurants to choose from and a grocery store that is walking distance, very doable. Some of the cookware was not in the best condition, but still reasonable. The air conditioner in the bedroom has a blue light that stays on when it is on, so if you are sensitive to light, bring a sleeping mask. There is plenty of shelving and storage to put your clothes and shoes.

In general, we loved staying here. It was a great way to feel part of the city while experiencing a pleasant stay in Madrid. Thank you!
