About the property

Open Studio Apartment With Bedroom, Living & Dining Areas, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 3

Perfect alternative to expensive hotel room without giving up luxury or location! First floor with elevator, in 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 very comfortable king-size bed, plus an additional sofa bed in the living room area. With windows to a quiet and airy interior courtyard and smack dab in the middle of all the happening places. We have lived in madrid for the past 14 years, 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. 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

We have this property and 4 more apartments, in the same building, in downtown Madrid and would like to make it available to Madrid visitors and do everything we can to make sure your stay is enjoyable and comfortable! We have been living in Madrid since the year 2000, so we are knowleageable and delighted to share all the information you may need to feel like a local.

Gorete Fieira Novack purchased this apartment in 2008

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.

Excellent location, awesome apartment

  • 5 of 5

This very centrally located, quiet apartment had everything we needed - comfortable bedding, good kitchen, and in-suite laundry, located a half block from a bustling square of excellent tapas bars and restaurants, and within a 10 minute walk of the major sites. The photos provide a very accurate view of the suite, which is in a renovated historic building on a pedestrian street in Old Madrid. We would not hesitate to recommend Gorete's lovely suite to friends, and will definitely book again when we return to Madrid.

Clean and Centrally Located. Great Place to Stay !

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed a week in Gorete's apartment on Calle de las Huertas, a bustling area in central Madrid. Although there is a lot of activity on the street, the apartment itself is amazingly quiet. The place is a cozy, extended studio with an open-shelf divider separating the sleeping area from the rest of the living area. The bed is comfortable and there are window shades that can completely block the outside light. The kitchen is well-equipped and includes the ever-important washer-dryer. The location was ideal, especially for a couple of inveterate walkers like us. Gorete was out of the country during our stay but we had no difficulty checking in with Alicia, who was very helpful. We felt quite secure, with a main gate on the street, and inner door into the building proper, and the bolted door to the apartment--all requiring separate keys.

The Huertas area is very lively, pedestrian friendly location, close to a major plaza and not very far by foot to the main museums and the Atocha railway station. (I would recommend taking a taxi if you arrive by train because it is a little far to drag you luggage...On the other hand, if you only have a backpack, it's a nice hike.)

In sum, I would recommend Gorete's place as a great place to headquarter for a visit to Madrid.

Look No Further!

This apartment is perfect for a couple. Clean, modern, spacious, and the neighborhood is safe with an abundance of bars, restaurants, markets, and boutiques. Communication with the owner was excellent. My wife and I loved this apartment and we will surely stay here again in the future. Highly recommended.

Wonderful Stay

  • 5 of 5

The studio was perfect for our stay in Madrid. It was a huge studio with a living room section as well as a kitchen area and a very comfortable bed. Upon arrival, Gorrete's assistant welcomed us with treats and a bottle of wine. The studio was located near a plaza full of bars and restaurants. We would definitely stay here again when we return to Madrid. Gracias!

True Gem in the Heart of Madrid!

  • 5 of 5

Madrid is a beautiful, vibrant city, and we could not have been happier with this lovely apartment right in the heart of it! The double-gated, secure apartment is surrounded by divine eateries, shops, lively plazas and within easy walking distance to all major attractions, including Prado Museum, Royal Palace, Thyssen Museum, and Botanical Gardens.

The apartment is a tastefully appointed, comfortable home-away-from-home with a full kitchen, washer/dryer, comfortable bed, living area and full bath. The huge closet cabinet was a bonus with ample storage for both of us.

Another bonus was direct communication with the property owner Gorete who goes above and beyond to ensure a memorable visit to this fascinating city. Gorete warmly welcomed us with a bottle of wine and pastry for our 6-night stay, provided ample recommendations and guidance, met with us personally and made arrangements for our early AM departure to the airport. Gorete is bilingual and speaks excellent English. She has 6 units in this lovely property which is convenient for group travel. We had such an amazing visit to Madrid, and we shall contact Gorete when we return! Great apartment, great value, great location, great city!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at the studio,perfectly located in the middle of all the action and things to see,but yet so quiet.The owner and her assistant were always available to help and were in contact throughout the stay. Will definitely come back next time in Madrid and will make sure to recommend to anyone visiting the city. A+++ experience.
