About The Punset Family
We are a spanish family of architects and interior designers. We own several apartments in Madrid and Barcelona, all of them are located in premium areas and are specially adapted for short term rentals for days, weeks or months. Our apartments are really special and are full of soul. Suitable for all those who want to enjoy their holidays, feel at home on a business trip, or take advantage of everything the city has to offer due to their exceptional location (something that students thank us a lot for). These are apartments with all the amenities, isolated from noise while being in the very center of the city. Equipped with all the necessities: from WIFI connection, essential for taking advantage of the city and planning the day before leaving home, to a wine-opener to uncork Spanish wine and savor it slowly after a long day. . . Our way of being brings us closer to the people. We accompany them throughout the whole process, from the moment of booking until the check out. We give them advice according to their preferences and enrich their stay so they can make the most out of the city and, of course, the apartment. We keep them updated from our weblogs on all the news, events, and dates not to be missed. We have open channels in social networks for consultation and suggestions, and they can benefit from the experience of others who have already enjoyed our services before. Our apartments are a more human and personal alternative to hotels. The direct and constant attention, as well as a new home in the city makes us your best option. Have a good trip and we hope to see you soon!!!

Decent property in Madrid but not great
This property was a decent place to stay in Madrid, we found it to be a little worn compared to the pictures online. Its a 5 minute walk to the subway and a 30 minute subway ride from most places we wanted to see in the city. ( taking into account the need to switch lines ) . We experienced a hot water shortage our first morning and a lack of adequate towels for the 5 nights we were staying. We did love the pool table that was available although it had restricted hours as to when it could be used. Our biggest challenge was getting in touch with the owner when we wanted to leave early and getting answers to questions that we had about the city etc. The owner is not available at all and the property manager was not readily available. We have sent numerous emails to the owner with questions and have not heard back from him at all. The property is in walking distance to the Bernabeu Real Madrid soccer stadium which worked out well for us. Another challenge we had was no grocery stores near by at all and no one to assist us in helping us find a nearby store to buy food. Parking is a challenge as well with street parking limited to 2--4 hours at a time and the nearest lot was quite a walk away. A information sheet left in the apartment with basic information as to grocery stores, parking , restaurants nearby would have been very helpful. Not sure I would recommend this apartment to a friend.
Fantastic spacious flat
I stayed at the Punset Family's flat with my 2 daughters for about 1 week. The apartment was clean and tidy and had all of the the technological gadgets necessary for both pleasure and work: fast wi-fi, AppleTV, Netflix, etc. The staff was very friendly, helpful and accommodating. Great transportation options nearby and easy to navigate the city from this location on the upper Castellana, just above the Plaza de Castilla. Also, very easy to find parking right in front of the building. I definitely plan to stay here again on my next trip to Madrid!
Very spacious & bright interior. All mod cons
Great property with excellent local amenities, a very fast metro into the centre, and very friendly owners.
The trip to Madrid was a delight, andf it was great to know that at the end of each day we would be returning to a comfortabl;e fun a[partment. Highly recommended!

Just back from 3 nights in this amazing apartment. Great location and the metro is close by. Roberto was very accommodating and the city was beautiful. Highly recommended!
Stunning apartment, great location
Arrived in Madrid from the airport and got the metro to the apartment which was very straight forward. The apartment was just a short walk from the metro station and easy to find. The metro itself was a very easy way to get around Madrid.
The apartment itself has 2 wonderful balconies with city views but you can also see the hills in the distance where you can watch the sun set over them. The place was exactly as advertised, the apartment is truly stunning inside. The additions of apple tv, wifi and wii make you feel right at home.
Across the road from the apartment is very well stocked supermarket. Also across the road are 2 excellent restaurants that we can highly recommended. There is a lovely neighborhood bar on the corner across from the apartment that does good breakfast options aswell as tasty tapas in the evenings.
Our stay was make all the better with the advice and recommendations from Roberto who couldn't have done more to make our stay as good as it could possibly be. This apartment is a great launching pad for enjoying the wonderful city that is Madrid.
Many thanks again Roberto for going out your way to make our stay a great one.
Thank you very much for your very positive review Duncan, thanks for taking your time on writing it. We are very glad you had a great time in Madrid and enjoyed the apartment and the area. Was nice to meet you guys. We keep in touch, Roberto.
Fantastic stay at this wonderful apartment! Everything is exactly as it appears in the pictures with the added bonus of amazing sunsets and extremely comfortable beds. The supermarket across the road had everything we needed and the pool table was the icing on the cake.
Thanks for your very positive review Paul, we really appreciate it. And we are very glad you had a great time in Madrid and at our apartment. Was very nice to meet you and your friends. We keep in touch. Roberto
Walking along la Castellana, which is divided into Paseo de la Castellana, Paseo de Recoletos and Paseo del Prado, we will see how the tradition coexists with current trends. From the impressive building of the National Library to the historical Cibeles, only ten minutes walk from the apartment, we arrive at the Santiago Bernabeu, the glorious Real Madrid stadium. Fashion galleries, restaurants for all tastes, outdoor terraces, typical 'tapas' bars, the most exclusive nightlife spots, nineteenth century mansions, and modern skyscrapers. Passing through the famous Plaza Colon which gives us access to Serrano, Goya and Velazquez streets, which also have many luxury boutiques, affordable fashion shops, shopping centers, restaurants, bars, nightclubs, theaters, cinemas, etc. La Castellana never sleeps, especially where it meets Gran Vía. Although, if you wish for some peace you just have to walk a few minutes until you hit the gardens surrounding the Paseo del Prado, the Mile of Art, where the Prado Museum, the Thyssen-Bornemisza and the majestic Retiro Park are located.
The apartment area is constantly evolving, changing toward a modernist and futuristic style, many innovative restaurants are popping up around the area and just opposite the apartment is the Casa Nemesio Restaurant, famous for its high quality Galician seafood tapas bar and its rices. The Italian Restaurant House Mafia is just 100 meters away. In the same Plaza Castilla, 200 meters from the apartment, has just opened the big Mall Castellana 200, with many shops of all kinds, fashion, footwear, souvenirs as Zara, Mango, H & M, etc, and restaurants of all kinds, with an exclusive entertainment area. Right next to the shopping center Castellana 200, you will find the shop Sánchez Romero Carvajal, one of the world's best Iberian ham. At this gourmet deli you can buy and taste hundreds of Spanish products of all kinds, all of the highest quality.
Also, if you like football and want to see Real Madrid in their natural habitat, the Santiago Bernabeu, if you want to watch live the best players in the world, Cristiano Ronaldo, Xabi Alonso, Iker Casillas, Higuain, Sergio Ramos, Khedira, Özil, Benzema and Di Maria, and Mourinho moving the baton, you can access within minutes by subway from the apartment. Ask us for tickets, we can help you get them.
And of course it is very well connected with the metro station Plaza Castilla and its buses, from where you can reach every corner of the city. And 5 minutes away there is also a parking lot. And a few meters away the M30, the highway that goes round the city and connects easily with Madrids fair IFEMA and Barajas Airport.
Madrid, located geographically in the center of Spain, is famous for the hospitality of its people and for making visitors feel as if they were at home. With its privileged location, has quick connection to Portugal, Andalusia, Barcelona, Cantabria, Galicia.
