Overview

About the property

1 bedroom, Sleeps 4, Full Kitchen, Historic Renovated Modern Building, Elevator

Perfect alternative to expensive hotel room without giving up luxury or location! Beautiful historic building completely renovated with all modern amenities and elevator, the building is completely brand new inside, but with original facade outside on popular Huertas street, extremely close to Prado, Thyssen and Reina Sofia Museums and the Palacio Real (Royal Palace), in historic downtown center of Madrid, the famous Barrio de las Letras.

The apartment has a very comfortable Queen bed ( 160 cm )

and 2 sofa beds in the living area. The bedroom has 3 walls and is not totally private. You can see it in the pictures.

I have lived in Madrid for the past decade, glad to help you choose the best places to visit in and around Madrid. The apartment is right next to Plaza de Santa Ana. Near Puerta del Sol and the Plaza Mayor and the Museums. You can walk to to La Cava Baja, a street full of restaurants and little bars. Also, the Mercado de San Miguel a great meeting place and delicious tapas!

The Metro subway station is a few steps away, so that you may easily move around Madrid, as well as a short walk to the Atocha Main Train station, from which you can easily take the high-speed bullet train AVE to Toledo, Segovia or Avila, or longer trips to Sevilla, Alicante or Barcelona.

You will love it!

About Gorete Fieira Novack

Our family moved from California to Madrid in the year 2000. We love Madrid and I am sure that all our guests will love it too.

I like to meet my guests and always try to be as helpful as possible. We do have several apartments in the same building and if you read our reviews you will see that most people really enjoyed their stay with us.

I look forward to hosting you in Madrid.

Why Gorete Fieira Novack chose Madrid

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 and a modern elevator. 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 over a decade, 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.

A Perfectly Located Apartment

  • 4 of 5

My wife and I stayed in this apartment at the begging of our three weeks in Spain. Now in the last of our six different stays, we can say that this was a high standard, which we only matched once (in Seville).

The apartment was in a perfect position, on the border of the two main centre districts. It was about a ten minute walk to the three major galleries (Prado, Thyssen and Reina Sofia) and similar walk to Plaza Mayor. The Palacio Real was about 15-20 minutes away.

We were surrounded by numerous eating options and felt extremely safe venturing out for dinner (like the locals) after 9pm.

The apartment doesn't have any external space (eg balcony or terrace, nor great views, but it is well designed to let in the light, so was bright and airy inside.

The kitchen-dining area is small, but adequate and well equiped with the basics. A bottle of wine on the table when we arrived was a nice welcoming gesture.

There was plenty of info, maps, etc, so the usual immediate visit to the Tourist Information Office (in Plaza Mayor) could be put off until the next morning.

A firm, comfortable, bed and excellent linen made for a very pleasant stay.

The ownere, Gorete, wasn't able to meet us on arrivsl - the housekeeper did - but called in to see us during tge stay.

Overall a very good accomodation choice, which we would definitely recommend to other couples.

Perfect

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Gorete's apartment in mid-May 2017. The location close to the museums, train station, and Plaza Major was great. Easy walk to the Royal Palace. The apartment was very clean, well appointed, safe and secure, and well stocked. Gorete even stopped by to say hello and recomended places to eat. We took her up on Taberna de los Heuvos Lucio on Calle Cava Baja and it was excellent. Be there when it opens At 20:00 or you wait in line. Highly recommend this Apartment, even has a washer/dryer for those packing light. Thanks Gorete.

M'y home away from home

  • 5 of 5

This is our second time at Huertas 12 and it feels home to us. We know where to buy our food, where to buy our wines, where to cut our hair, where to Get our medicines, where to eat, where to go to The theaters and museums in a few words, our home away from home.

Corete, the owner, could not be nicer and helpful, we feel we are already friends. The aparment with it's location and facilities would be sufficient in itself when you add the rest you are home away from home.

Time in Madrid

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I recently stayed at Gorete's property in Madrid. She was easy to communicate with, and gave us lots of suggestions of things to do, to see, and places to eat. Her place is well later out, very clean, and the bed is very comfortable. The location was perfect as we were able to walk to all the major attractions.

Modern Apartment near everything.

  • 5 of 5

We truly enjoyed our stay in Madrid. Gorete kept great communication with me from when we booked through check out. The apartment was clean, modern, and very comfortable and every detail was taken into consideration, from plenty of soaps, toiletry items, to soft and luxurious bath towels. I full-heartedly recommend this property!

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). The apartment is located in a historic building that was completely renovated a few years ago, so that the essence of the old was kept and all the modern amenities and comforts added. The windows are double-paned glass, so that even though you are smack-dab in the middle of the historic downtown area, literally a stone´s throw away from virtually all the worthwhile cultural and artistic sites (Prado Museum, Reina Sofia Modern Art Museum, Thyssen, Palacio Real (Royal Palace), Plaza Mayor, Puerta del Sol, etc.) you will have a safe and restful home away from home to enjoy Madrid to the fullest! Also, the Metro stop and Atocha train station is very, very close and you may easily take day trips to Toledo, Segovia, Avila or take the AVE (High Speed Train) to Sevilla, Alicante or Barcelona. Besides, I have lived in Madrid for over a decade, so I am 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.
