Cortes Apartment Rental Photos and Description

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 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.

We loved our stay in Madrid at this beautiful apartment! Great location to all of the museums!!

  • 5 of 5

Gorete was wonderful to communicate with me from the time I booked the apartment until the night before we left. She was so kind to make suggestions for restaurants, give directions to museums and even to arrange for a cab to the airport! She also left us a nice bottle of wine and a cake!

I really appreciated the washer/dryer with directions in English. (We had some difficulty operating appliances while in Spain)

I highly recommend this apartment!!

The perfect accommodation to experience beautiful Madrid!

  • 5 of 5

The perfect accommodation to experience beautiful Madrid! Stop wasting your time looking any further. This is the place! Any of Gorete's properties are your best choice! We spent a month traveling to France and Spain and our experience with Gorete was The best we had on our trip. Her Excellent customer service begins with your very first email and contact to the completion of your trip when you leave the property and travel on your way. ( we DID NOT have the same experience with any other VRBO property ). The location is perfect, step out the front door and you are in central Madrid with a beautiful plaza around the corner. Amazing restaurants and winding streets will take you on your dream visit. Gorete has considered your every need in the apartment which is spacious and has every amenity. Her assistants Jesus and Alicia are also available to make sure your stay is perfect! Not only was this stay seamless but Gorete goes above and beyond and will treat you like family. She truly loves taking care of the guests that stay at her beautiful apartments. An extra shout out to Jesus who helped us get a cab on our way out.

What a wonderful apartment.

  • 5 of 5

This is perhaps the best apartment we have rented. It is walking distance from almost everything we wanted to do, in a great neighborhood for eating and shopping yet it was very quiet. We never heard any street noise.

Gorette was a delight. We had forgotten our adapter and she bought us one. We were met by a stocked kitchen (wine and cake) and all the utensils, dishes and pots that we would need. Everything felt clean and we also had plenty of room for storing our clothes.

Thanks for a great stay in Madrid.

Amazing property in the heart of Madrid

  • 5 of 5

What a perfect holiday rental. The apartment was everything my partner and I needed for our 3 night stay in Madrid (though it would be perfect for a longer stay than that!). It was pristinely clean, spacious and comfortable with everything you could need if you decided to stay in and cook. Location = perfect. Gorete was an absolute pleasure to engage with - always responsive and extremely helpful. You won't regret staying here!

Beautiful apartment in a great location! Exactly as billed - clean, comfortable studio apartment. It has windows into the large courtyard, so very quiet. Bed was quite comfortable and the apartment is well equipped. The area is a pedestrian zone and very central. Ten to fifteen minute walk to the Prado, or the Gran Via and a bit more to the Palace. Gorete was great to work with - prompt responses to our queries and provided useful information prior to our arrival. The doorman and Alicia who greeted us were both delightful - albeit our lack of Spanish made conversing difficult. No worries as Gorete has a binder with all necessary information in English. A bottle of wine and a pound cake awaited our arrival. Gorete also ordered us a taxi to the airport at a very early hour. We loved Madrid and will return - hopefully to stay at one of Gorete's apartments.

This is without exagerrating one of the best pedestrian street to be, because within 10 minutes walking you are at the prado museum, reina sofia museum, thyssen museum, and the city center puerta del sol. 10 more minutes, and you are at the royal palace, cibeles, gran via and we will make sure you feel at home in madrid, this is your home away from home. Comfortable, clean, safe and fun.
