Wonderful Place!!!

  • 5 of 5

As a frequent traveler who have stayed in good hotels (including 5 stars) around the world, I have to say that Gonzalo's place met all my expectations, and is as good or better than any 5 star hotel. It's exactly as described and seen in the vrbo website, nothing to hide! I traveled with 4 friends, all of us professional women in our 50's who travel for pleasure at least 5 times a year. The apartment is absolutely beautiful, practical and very functional with all the basic amenities that are needed in an apartment, coffee carafe or greka (european which we loved to make our coffee), stove, refrigerator, etc. including a washer machine The apartment is centrically located in the Barrio de las Letras and is within walking distance of everything! We are New Yorkers and are used to walk everywhere, however we felt no need to take a train or bus at all. Madrid is a walkable city! Location and safety was a must for us all women! We had already visited Madrid many times, staying at hotels. However this time decided to try this service. We wanted to be in a place where we could feel safe and away from noise and busy goings of a touristy area. This apartment met our expectations over 100%. The apartment building is located in a very quiet and safe area. We loved the easy availability of restaurants, bars/tavernas and convenient/grocery stores/markets around the area.The apartment is beautifully and tastefully decorated and furnished. It has an air conditioner in the living/dining room area which basically works very well for the entire apartment and there are ceiling fans in every bedroom. Both bedrooms have a full bathroom each. The beds were very comfortable, linens and towels in good condition. We have already considered contacting Gonzalo again for our next trip to Madrid. I highly recommend it, more than 5 stars!!!

Nice apartment , great location ...

  • 4 of 5

As described re the bedrooms and bathrooms , clean and comfortable beds , good reception , wifi was good ,- appeared as photos show , however , when advertising as a property that could sleep six and you choose an apartment for the benefit of some self catering ,, the kitchen needs much improvement with regard to crockery and cutlery and basic cooking items . Plates and glasses and wine glasses for more than 2 would have been appreciated , as well as a saucepan or 2 , a larger frypan , a wooden spoon or stirrer would help , a larger plate for serving of snacks - we were unable to prepare a basic meal for 4 with the one tiny frypan ... The only other jarring note was the table surface - - if not possible to repair , then a tablecloth would help . However , we would stay again - the apartment was perfect otherwise just needs someone to be vigilant re kitchen supplies ... maybe a quick trip to IKEA .

Quiet apartment in a great Madrid location

  • 3 of 5

This is a quiet street in the heart of Madrid. If the closest subway station had been open, I would give it an unconditional recommendation. The construction work and station closure (for the past year +) made our arrival and locating the apartment a bit difficult. A heads up on details like this would have helped.

The 2BR/2Bath apartment is confortable and works well for two couples. We did have a problem with the deadbolt: my friend accidentally left the key in the door on departure. Thus, we could not unlock the door to reenter ( It took 170 Euros to learn this hard lesson ). BTW - These locks are illegal in the US, so a big red warning sign would have helped my friend.

There are countless cafes, bar, restaurants, clubs, bakeries, etc. close by. The Prado is a couple of blocks. One could never run out of options here. We loved the neighbourhood; took day trips from here to Segovia, El Escorial, Toledo.... Enjoy!

I would certainly consider staying here again. We enjoyed the apartment and environs.

Owner's Response: John many thanks about your comments, I am so glad that you really liked my place and the location. About the deadbolt, it was completely out of our control that your friend left the key inside the deadbolt and close the door. You called me and let me remind you that it was holiday in Madrid and we did our best to solve the situation, the only person that could fix the problem it is profesional locksmith. We managed all the situation and asked you about the fee and you were not only completely agreed also were very pleased and grateful that we've solved the problem very quick. So I am really surprised about your comment afterwards in a public way. Despite this I am so glad that you have enjoyed and like my place and the location. We'd love to see you back anytime and for the next time and I am sure you won't leave the key inside the deadbolt again.

Perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for 4 nights in this apartment and enjoyed it very much. It was very clean, comfortable and had everything we needed for breakfast at home. Perfect location for the museums and Botanical Garden and we loved all the little restaurants in the area. Subway down the street for when you need a ride home after a day of exploring, and train station a walk away for day trips. Thanks, Gonzalo.

perfect apartment in every way especially for 2 couples traveling together

  • 5 of 5

We had a set criteria to find an apt. in Madrid for 6 days. It had to be walking distance to the train station for our day trips to Avila, Toledo etc and central to sites such as the Prado. The location of this apartment had the added, wonderful surprise of being in the heart of the fabulous restaurant district. Add the 2 (very clean) private bedrooms and 2 full baths, and a safe eclectic neighborhood ....It was absolutely perfect. Thank you Gonzalo!

Great place for seeing all the central sites in Madrid

  • 5 of 5

Two friends traveling to Madrid for a few days we lucked out being able to rent this well appointed, centrally located apartment minutes from the train station and the key areas in Madrid. The place has a great layout for friends and the building was easy to find and the lady that greeted us was friendly and helpful. The owner was responsive and when we asked for an earlier check-in (4:00 pm was a bit late for us) he got back to us right away letting us know he was unable to accommodate given a guest was checking out the same day. He helped me when I asked for a number of a taxi company as well which was nice. There is also an elevator on the property which is quite nice for those that are not traveling so light. The place definitely has a few marks on the walls along the hallway and in the bedroom but that didn't take away from the overall charm of the place and benefits of the location.
