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 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. 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.

Perfect apartment

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying at Gorete's apartment, even though Gorete was away when we arrived she arranged for her friend to meet us and introduce us to the apartment. Lovely touches like cake, coffee and wine were really appreciated. The apartment is so central to everything in Madrid, including the Metro and Attocha Station. Yet it was slightly away from the really busy Sol area. The apartment was beautifully clean, the bed was really comfortable. All in all I can highly recommend this apartment.

Unforgettable Madrid experience

  • 5 of 5

We feel so lucky to have found this amazing apartment in a delightful part of Madrid! Everything we could possibly need was waiting for us--and more! From the stylish and comfortable layout and the sun-infused living space to the darling balcony, from the welcome surprises to the beautiful decor, this really is a fantastic place to stay. It's in my new favorite part of the city--very close to many restaurants, from hip to historical, as well as bars, shopping, and music. And everyone made us feel so welcome from the moment we arrived. Gorete is a delight--sharing a glass of wine with her was a highlight. We can't wait to return--and stay again.

Wonderful and tasteful apartment in the centre of Madrid's cultural neighbourhood

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this location for one week in late October/early November, 2016. The apartment was absolutely lovely; modern, comfortable and tasteful. The location is ideal for anyone interested in being in the middle of the action. The apartment is relatively small but well equipped and entirely suitable for couples. The bed is large and comfortable (an important feature for those planning to stay for an extended period). The building itself is also quite lovely and extremely well-maintained. And, as an added bonus, the restaurant located right in the building (VI Cool) is excellent and worth a visit.

But perhaps the best part of this rental is the owner of this apartment, Gorete, who is a truly amazing host. She provided us with important instructions about Madrid -- what to see, where to eat, etc. She also met with us, which was quite delightful. We have rented several places through VRBO and other similar organizations and I must admit that Gorete's level of attention to detail and her engagement with those who rent her apartment is exceptional.

We will certainly return to Madrid and will undoubtedly book this apartment again. It is a gem!

Marvelous apartment and location

  • 5 of 5

We were thrilled with this apartment on a great street in Madrid. Close to everything ( we even walked to and from train station). It was clean, had comfortable king bed, full kitchen, and several American channels on TV to keep up with things. My husband was so happy to have a washcloth it was funny. We cooked our eggs and bacon and walked to palace, art museums and really all over the city. The street was a happening place at night but with windows closed we had no problem. Gorete was so easy to deal with and very sweet and helpful. Having spent 5 nights in Madrid exploring all over the city I would chose this location and apartment again in a minute. Thanks Gorete for the coffee, cake and wine and for the 2 restaurant recommendations Vi Cool and Lamucca. Rose and Bill
