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.

Great location. Easy to walk to many of Spain"s treasures. Although we did not get the owner, she made herself readily available through texting and had other members of her team available if needed. Nice personal touches. A bottle of wine and cake too.

Beautiful apartment, wonderful host

Gorete's apartment was lovely and perfect for our stay in Madrid. The bed was comfortable and the kitchen well appointed. The welcome bottle wine and cookies were a nice surprise! We would absolutely stay again,

Great apartment, great location, great city!

  • 5 of 5

We spent a few days in Madrid, wandering the streets, enjoying the sites and sampling the great food and wine. Apartment was perfect. Unfortunately, having my wallet pick-pocketed was not so perfect.

Excellent apartment and location

  • 5 of 5

We had an excellent stay here. The location is perfect; just off the lively Santa Ana plaza in old historic Madrid. It’s walking distance to the Prado and many of the great Madrid sights and restaurants or to either the underground Metro system or the “Hop on-Hop off” tourist bus.

The apartment is beautifully but simply furnished in modern style; all the appliances/fixtures are new and in perfect working condition. Separate thermostats controlled the heat/air conditioning systems in the bedroom and living room areas and the Internet speed was good.

The owner Gorete came to meet us and is completely charming and helpful. More importantly, she is available at all times by phone or messaging if you do have any questions or minor problems.

We had a great time and would recommend this unit to anyone without any hesitation.

Perfect stay

  • 5 of 5

Great location, in the center of Madrid but not on a major street. Many restaurants, stores, and metro stops nearby. Easy walk to Retiro Park and to the major museums. Apartment was very clean and comfortable, and both the bed and sleeper sofa were very comfortable. Apartment was very quiet, though it's a busy area on a Saturday night and there was a bit of noise. Great to be able to eat breakfasts in the apartment and do a load of laundry in the middle of our trip.

Beautiful apartment & great location

  • 5 of 5

High spec property run by a very friendly, knowledgeable and helpful owner - thanks Gorete!!. Location is smack in the middle of the city, very convenient for sightseeing on foot or by metro, yet relatively quiet during the early hours. Plenty of options nearby for bars and restaurants. Highly recommend a stay at this or its adjoining apartments - without question we would re-book when we next visit Madrid.
