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 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 is not totally private. It has 3 walls. You can see it well 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 Latina, Mercado de San Miguel, Gran Via and also to Parque del Retiro.

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 Train station, from which you can easily take the high-speed bullet train AVE to Toledo, Segovia , or longer trips to Sevilla, Alicante or Barcelona.

You will love it!

About Gorete Fieira Novack

We have 6 apartments in the same building downtown Madrid and would like to make it available to Madrid visitors and do everything we can to make sure you feel at Home away from Home.

Gorete Fieira Novack purchased this apartment in 2014

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.

Cozy, inviting home away from home

  • 5 of 5

This is a very special property, mostly for two reasons. The location is a 10, perfect in every way, from sites of interest, museums, to grocery shopping, hair salons, restaurants, anything you would need. Second, the landlady is more a friend than landlady. If 20 minutes went by before she responded to a request for something to be fixed, or any need whatsoever, that was a long time. ANYTHING you need, she supplies, inside the apartment and out. You need a doctor? She will get you there. I was there for 3 months and her super attentiveness, the maid service every week, the restaurant suggestions, etc., made living there extremely pleasant.

Beautiful apartment in best location in Madrid

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful modern apartment with comfortable bed and very nice bathroom. The location of this apartment could not be better - right in the heart of central Madrid. Very safe building and many nice restaurants and bars nearby. Gorete was a wonderful host and even visited to say hello and offered wonderful suggestions for restaurants and bars. This apartment is as stylish as its owner - I would definitely stay here again!

Wonderful apartment and location

  • 5 of 5

Definitely rent this apartment from Gorete! The apartment is nice, the location in Madrid is perfect - pedestrian street between the Prado and the Plaza Mayor - and the building is secure. Questions were answered promptly. We had one issue and it was resolved the next day-no fuss. We loved it and plan to return.

Excellent

We have been to 84 countries, fly first class and usually stay at 5 star properties. This was our first apartment rental and we were completely satisfied. Nuff said.

Everything was great!

Where to begin . . .

First, Gorete's customer service - impeccable. Any questions were addressed promptly. She accommodated every request I had. I asked if the twin beds could be pushed together to make a king and she said she would make it work. We also asked if we could unload our bags since we arrived at an obscenely early time and didn't want to have to sightsee with them until check in time and she accommodated. She said that as long as no one was leaving that day, we could check in early. Gorete thought of everything. The place is well stocked with all the things you would have in your own pied-à-terre. Gorete even left us a welcome gift of a bottle of wine, large bottle of water and baked good.

Next the apartment. There was just myself and my boyfriend so the amount of space was more than enough. I had enough room to do yoga in the morning. The apartment is light and bright and decorated very nicely. The kitchen was convenient. We stocked up on provisions as soon as we arrived. I suggest stocking up on wine, cava, ham, baguette and cheese. This way we were able to have a snack in the middle of the day or have a glass of wine while we got ready for a night out. The bed was as comfortable as our own. Slept like a rock every night. We didn't hear any notice from the street. The apartment has a washer/dryer and although it takes much longer than normal, it was still very convenient. We were able to go home with clean clothes. Detergent is provided.

Finally, the last reason you want to stay at one of Gorete's apartments - Location. Calle de las Huertas is a lively street. Everything is so close. Just walk out the building and there are restaurants, bars, shoppes everywhere. The three major museums are all within 10-15 minutes walk. May I suggest buying a "Paseo de Arte" ticket in advance. It is a pass to get into the 3 museums. It will make your visit to the museums so much better. We did not have to wait in the ridiculously long line at the Prado nor any of the other museums.

Thank you Gorete for making our Spain trip that much more enjoyable. We truly loved staying in your place and your attention to detail and your appreciation for style comes through in your apartment. We fell in love with Madrid and hope to visit 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.
