Overview

About the property

1 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 3

Perfect alternative to expensive hotel room without giving up luxury or location! In a completely brand new building inside, but with original facade outside on popular Huertas street, extremely close to Prado, Thyssen and Reina Sofia Museums and the Palacio Real, in historic center of Madrid, the famous Barrio de las Letras. The apartment has a king size bed, plus additional sofa bed in the living room. Lots of light and smack dab in the middle of all the happening places.

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, a street full of restaurants and little bars. Also, the Mercado de San Miguel. Great meeting place and good tapas

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 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.

Amazing stay! First time in Madrid. Gorete is an angel!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I visited Madrid for the first time from Nov 11-17 and stayed here. Our trip was amazing and made even better by Gorete's hospitality. First off, the flat is beautiful! It's exactly as pictured. It's super clean and the balcony is gorgeous with a great view of a very picturesque street. Upon arrival at the airport, I texted Gorete (who is so responsive) via WhatsApp and Alicia met us at the flat. Alicia doesn't speak English but that was not a problem at all. She walks you through everything. We had no trouble understanding her. I must say, the cake and wine treats provided by Gorete is so thoughtful and much needed after a flight. Gorete is also very generous with the household items she provides guests, such as providing extra toothbrushes, soap, towels, and even a little sewing kit. We've stayed at other homes before via VRBO and Gorete is by far one of the best host. The flat is centrally located and literally a 15 min walk from all the major attractions in the city. There are also many grocery stores and restaurant options around the area. Try out Lateral (get tapas) and Dim Sum Market. They were my favorite. The flat is also close to Atocha train station where my husband and I purchased two round trip tickets through Renfe for a day trip to Toledo. On our last day, Gorete even offered to let my husband and I stay a little pass our check out time so we wouldn't have to wait so long at the airport before our flight departed. Through and through, this experience was one of the best we've ever had and because of that I don't think my husband and I will be frequenting hotels anytime soon. I am so grateful we found this place. My husband has family in Madrid so we'll definitely be back here, again. Next time with our kids, too. Thank you for everything, Gorete.

Charming apartment in a nice building, good location, great amenities

  • 5 of 5

Gorete has thought of so many nice details to make us comfortable and at home. Wish we could have stayed longer. We had everything we needed. Gorete was so generous with advice, instructions on how everything worked and little things like plush towels, quality bedding, extra toiletries, a fully equipped kitchen and a welcome bottle of wine, pastry, and water. The best property we have visited so far. Kudos for an outstanding Madrid experience.

Gorgeous apartment in the best neighborhood (Las Letras)!

  • 5 of 5

I don't think we could have asked for a better place for our long weekend in Madrid. This apartment is strikingly beautiful -- vaulted ceilings, newly renovated, clean and open, adorable enclosed balcony, working washing/dryer, incredibly comfortable bed, great stove and large refrigerator. But best of all, it's smack dab in the middle of Calle de las Huertas, the busiest street in Las Letras and walking distance to a number of squares (including Plaza Major and Sol) to all the museums and to La Latina. We'd stay here again in a heartbeat.

Perfect in every way!

  • 5 of 5

From start to finish, every aspect of our stay in Gorete's beautiful apartment was a pleasure! Thank you for thinking of absolutely everything we could want or need! The building is lovely and clean, the area is perfect for exploring! We walked everywhere but easily caught a taxi from the airport and then back to the train station with our bags at the end of our stay. The apartment is beautifully decorated, and perfectly clean. There were toiletries and basics in the kitchen, more than we needed. Very thoughtful touches, and Gorete is easy to communicate with and friendly. We would recommend this in a heartbeat, and do plan to come back again and again!

Wonderful!!!

  • 5 of 5

After travelling for six weeks, this apartment was a luxury!! Spotless, every mod-con, perfect position and extra little touches, such as complimentary wine/cake made this apartment our top pick during our trip. Thank you to our hosts for making Madrid that extra bit special!

Lovely and sunny home base in Madrid!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved this apartment we stayed in Dec 2015 and I am so sorry I didn't post a glowing review right away. Comfortable, safe, perfect location and a warm welcome from Gorete. It was the end of a long vacation and right before the holidays--so nice for our family to feel relaxed and able to enjoy Madrid for the first time with no stress. Thank you!
