Perfect alternative to an expensive hotel room without giving up luxury or location! The Apartment is on a third floor with elevator, in a completely new building inside, but with original facade. It's on, very popular, Calle de Huertas. Very close to Prado, Thyssen and Reina Sofia Museums and the Palacio Real. Situated in th Historic Center of Madrid, the famous Barrio de las Letras. The apartment has a king size bed, plus additional sofa beds in the living room. Lots of light and smack dab in the middle of all the happening places. The bedroom has 3 walls and is not totally private. A wall/closet separates the living room from the bedroom. You can see it in the pictures.

The apartment is right next to Plaza de Santa Ana. Near Puerta del Sol and the Plaza Mayor. You can walk to La Cava Baja, Mercado de San Miguel and also to Parque del Retiro. Really a perfect Location.

Why Gorete Fieira Novack chose Cortes

Location, location, location! This is smack-dab in the middle of the historic Barrio de las Letras (Literature Neighborhood) very romantic, safe and with countless places to eat, people-watch, on a pedestrian street (no traffic).

What makes this apartment unique

The building was completely gutted a few years ago and they saved the facade and the 100 year old staircase, but everything else is brand-new modern construction. We have furnished and equipped the apartment with everything we would like to find in a rental, we use VRBO ourselves when we travel so we understand that small details are paramount. Besides, we have lived in Madrid for the past 14 years, so we are happy to steer you to the best suggestions, whether they are restaurants, site seeing, shopping, trendy restaurants, family places or unique Madrid experiences depending on your date of travel.

Well equipped condo in perfect location

  • 5 of 5

Gorete's apartment is very cute. The bed is big and very comfortable, and there is ample closet / drawer space in the bedroom. The kitchen has all the essentials, including a big fridge and a washing machine. The apartment is very clean and equipped with mostly new appliances and furniture. The building seems well-maintained.

The location is perfect - many of the tourist and even local hot spots are within walking distance. There are several breakfast and tapas restaurants, and bars, on the street where the apartment is located. The street noise carries up to the third floor apartment a bit, but the bedroom is not next to the street, and with my earplugs, I didn't hear a thing.

I would definitely stay at Gorete's apartment again if I find myself in Madrid another time...

Highly Recommend. Perfect Location

A lovely weekend and Gorete was so responsive and helpful. The apartment has everything you need and is very comfortable. It is a lively neighbourhood but with so many lovely tapas bars and so many major attractions close by, it really is the place to stay.

Where You Want to Be

  • 5 of 5

I wanted to stay where I could walk to all the top spots—this is that place! I was really interested in going to the Prado Museum, and I walked there twice to visit. Another day, I walked to Retiro Park. Before arriving at the park I bought my lunch and took it to the park to enjoy there. I walked to Plaza Mayor and Plaza del Sol, and to the smaller plazas nearby. One day I walked to the Royal Palace. If you are really interested in experiencing Madrid, this condominium is the place to stay. There are numerous restaurants nearby. I recommend the Thai restaurant just out of the building to the right, and again to the right. Not until my daughter finished her studies in Italy and joined me did I really have the need for a cab; She wanted to go see Alt-J in concert so we took a taxi to the arena. It did not take me long to realize Calle Huertas is where I wanted to be. It is a safe and desirable location. The property itself is immaculate. The wi-fi and TV are as good as it gets. The bed is completely comfortable. Gorete’s kindness and generosity is the icing on the cake! There is no better place in Madrid to vacation!

Great stay in a great place!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay in this apartment was much more than what we could have anticipated. Not only were we provided with every amenity imaginable, but also the location was ideal as it was in walking distance to just about EVERYTHING. Communication with Gorete was excellent from the minute we booked our stay until it sadly was time to leave. If ever we are fortunate enough to visit Madrid again, Calle de las Huertas, 12 will be our first choice!

You will be smack-dab in the center of the historical center downtown Madrid! This is without exagerrating one of the best pedestrian streets to be, because within a few minutes walking you are at the Prado Museum, Reina Sofia Museum, Thyssen Museum, and the city center Puerta del Sol. Also very close to the Royal Palace, Cibeles, Gran Via. We look forward to hosting you and hope to make you feel At Home in Madrid.
