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.

Our Stay Exceeded All Expectations

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I had visited Madrid before, so it was a walk down memory lane. The location of the apartment was perfect for us. We could go out the front gate and turn left to be in Plaza St. Angel or turn right to walk down to Plaza St. Ana. We were truly in the center of all the activity, e.g., cafe's, restaurants, shops, etc. Our landlady, Gorete, was very gracious about staying in touch with us, but she had a secret weapon: Alicia, whom we ran into almost daily. We took a side trip to Jerez during our stay, and Alicia kindly arranged a taxi to take us to the airport, as she did on our last morning in Spain. What a wonderful experience it all was!

A real gem in the center of Madrid

  • 5 of 5

This apartment was absolutely wonderful for our 3 day stay in Madrid. It is clean, beautifully decorated and wonderfully maintained. The owner, Gorete, made sure that we had everything we needed for a comfortable stay and she was an excellent communicator, rapidly responding to all emails. The apartment is located on a quiet street in the heart of Madrid in close proximity to the Puerta del Sol, Plaza Mayor, Gran Vía, and El Prado. Plus, there are plenty of Metros around if you want to explore further. Moreover, the neighborhood is packed with great restaurants and bars. The beautiful Plaza de Santa Ana is just steps away with great cafes. I am thrilled that we stayed here and my family of 4 would not hesitate returning as it is was that pleasant a stay. Gracias Gorete!!

This was a stunning apartment in a perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is located in a safe neighborhood, ideally located within easy walking distance to all the top sites or to metro stops for all the top sites. It is immaculately kept with every amenity one could possibly need or want, including a bottle of wine and cake upon arrival.

Great modern apartment in a fantastic location

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four had a wonderful time in Madrid due in no small part to the high-quality, modern and centrally-located apartment we were able to stay in during our visit. We really appreciated the professionalism and thoughtfulness the owner put into making our stay a memorable one!

I have no reservations about recommending this apartment to anyone looking for a classy place to stay during a visit to the city.

Perfect apt and great location

  • 5 of 5

Great clean modern apartment in central Madrid easy to walk anywhere. Very quick to respond and very nice - had coffee, cake, water and wine waiting for us at our arrival. Also had a very helpful book for apartment and city recommendations. We followed the walking tour and loved it. Highly recommend. Plenty of room for me, my husband, and 3month old son. More room on sofa beds if needed. Thanks again!

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.
