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.

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.

Little gem studio in the middle of it all

  • 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.

Beautiful Apartment in Historic Neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

This is the second time my husband, teenage daughter, and I rented an apartment in Madrid 5 and, once again, it was a wonderful experience. The apartment is very clean, comfortable, and well-furnished. It is located in the historic district of Barrio de Las Letras, and walking distance to many major sights including Plaza Mayor, El Prado, and Palacio Real. It is also a short walk to several Metro stations and steps from a taxi stand. During our stay, we took short taxi rides to the beautiful Museo Sorolla and the fun and delicious Casa Mingo (known for their chicken and cider). We walked to the grand Teatro Real for a tour of the opera house, and then watched a contemporary musical at Teatro Calderon, which is no more than a five-minute walk from the apartment. Madrid is a wonderful city to visit. We would love to visit and rent this apartment again!

Beautiful apartment in a central, historic location

  • 5 of 5

My husband, teenage daughter, and I loved staying in this lovely, well stocked apartment with high ceilings and air conditioning and wifi that worked well. It was easy to communicate with Gorete. She sent detailed information about the apartment and neighborhood before our stay, and there was a binder full of useful information in the apartment. The apartment is located in the historic Barrio de las Letras, and we enjoyed its cobblestone streets, proximity to so many restaurants, cafes, and markets, and beautiful architecture. We were able to walk to Plaza Mayor, Palacio Real, El Prado, Reina Sofia, Caixa Forum, Retiro Park, and many other sites. This is an ideal place to stay in Madrid.

I have nothing but positive things to say about saying here. If you are looking for a place to stay, this is a must. The place was fantastic, felt like I never left home. The building is clean and well maintained. Everything was ready the day I arrived and the communication was excellent. I hope to stay here again when I return to Madrid!
