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!

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!

Would recommend

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I would recommend this apartment. It is the perfect size for a vacation with the benefits of additional amenities like kitchen and washing machine. The apartment was clean and practical and safe. Having never been to Madrid before, the location was ideal from distance to the main train station, and the metro but we walked everywhere as you can see the main sights between 5 mins to 25mins walk depending on whether you wanted to enjoy the Mercado or visit the Prado museum. It is also located on one of the major gastronomic streets where you can experience a range of cuisines from tapas, Italian, and Hawaiian food. Jose Miguel is personally very hospitable and very accommodating to our arrival time to ensure we were met personally at the apartment. Also we felt the appropriate requirements were followed from ensuring our identities were legitimate. We had a wonderful stay!
