The perfect location
Manuel was wonderful. Gave us so many suggestions for the area. The place had everything we needed and then some.. There was even coffee, juice, milk, bread, butter and jam for us. The apartment was beautiful and within walking distance of everything you want to see. And when he tells you that you need to see the Basilica of San Francisco ...believe him and go! We have seen many basilicas and cathedrals all over Europe and this was my favorite. It also has one of the largest domes in the world.
Thank you, Manuel, for the perfect stay while in Madrid!
Great location near all attractions
Highly recommend this property for anyone visiting Madrid. The property is only a 10 min taxi ride from Madrid Atocha train station and 5 min walk to La Latina Metro. We were met at the apartment by host Manuel at the agreed time. Apartment was easy to find in a secure building with a lift. Manuel spoke good English and is a very nice man. He showed us around the apartment and explained in detail how everything worked. He then spent half an hour with us to explain the major sights of Madrid and location of great tapas bars of which there are hundreds to choose from within walking distance. He also provided maps and all the tourist information you could need. The apartment was great with a separate bedroom and a small but modern bathroom. The bathroom had a good size walk in shower with 2 shower heads. A rain shower and hand held with excellent water pressure and lots of hot water. The apartment also had 2 air conditioning units. One in the bedroom and the other in the living area. These were most welcome and worked great as the temperatures hit 40deg Celsius outside during our 3 day stay. The apartment was fully furnished with everything required that looked mostly brand new right down to the hairdryer and iron still in their boxes. There is also a washing machine as well as a coin operated Laundromat across the road for drying the clothes if needed. The kitchen contained all the utensils required for cooking as well as some basic food items which was over and above what was expected. We were able to have a light breakfast without having to buy anything as there was ample tea, coffee, sugar, milk, juice, preserves, bread and pastries for 3 days. That said there are a myriad our food choices literally 20 steps from the front door including vegan restaurants and some excellent tapas bars 50 mtr away. Plaza Mayor and the royal palace are an easy 20 min walk on level ground. In all we were thoroughly happy with everything and couldn’t fault the property or the location and are so glad we booked this.
Thank you very much for your comment, I am very happy to know that your stay in Madrid has been pleasant and you have enjoyed it, and the apartment has been to your liking, I thank you again for being such good guests and taking care of the apartment leaving the clean and ordered, enjoy your trip, a greeting Manuel.
Nice location. Very helpful owner.
Overall great stay walking distance to most sights but still in a more local neighborhood. Owner was very helpful in giving advice on things to do and see.
Very good experience, some great guests who respected at all times the rules of the house, totally recommended for future rentals
We walked to Atocha Station, Reina Sofia, Prado, and El Retiro and then took the Metro back. Very easy. Next, we went Metro to the Royal Palace and Sabatini Gardens. We walked back, passing through Gran Via, Plaza Mayor, and Puerto del Sol. Had a churro at San Ginese...far too rich for us. Excellent time in Madrid for three days and would return to the same location. Manuel is very professional.
Thank you very much for your valuation, I am glad to know that everything has been to your liking, thank you very much for taking care of the apartment, leaving it clean and tidy, a pleasure to have you as guests.
Property was located within a short walk of most sought after attractions in the center of Madrid. The apartment was clean, contained some helpful amenities such as an iron and ironing board, umbrellas, kitchen supplies and some food. We would definitely stay again!
Thanks for your comment
Clean comfortable apartment conveniently located in center
My wife and I stayed in the apartment a week. It was perfect for us, and we agree with all the comments of the other five-star reviews here on HomeAway. The apartment was clean and comfortable, and had everything we needed. Manuel met us when we arrived, and told us about the neighborhood and the sites in Madrid. The neighborhood is near two metro stops and lots of restaurants, cafes, bars and shops. You can reach virtually every major site in Madrid (including the Prado and the Royal Palace) within about 20 minutes on foot.
Our only complaint was with some street noise late at night, especially on weekends, but I suppose this is an issue all over Madrid! (The noise was people, rather than traffic, because Encomienda is a narrow, mostly pedestrian, street).
Thank you very much for your comment, and thank you for being such polite and friendly guests and take such good care of the apartment, leaving it clean and orderly, 100% formidable guests for future trips of this lovely couple, a greeting and hug, Manuel.
Apartment in the Rastro, a few minutes from Puerta del Sol, Plaza Mayor, the Royal Palace, Almudena Cathedral, etc.
Crowd of cultural leisure spaces also as it goes out to the street. Back for the Madrid de los Austrias and traditional Madrid.
Possibility of making many visits to museums, shopping, bars, typical streets and main buildings; All this walking. Parking payment 3 minutes from the apartment.
