Description:

The apartment is located on the fourth floor (with elevator) of a historic listed building of one of central Madrid’s most emblematic streets (Where Cervantes is buried!).

It is a spacious and QUIET flat with one large master bedroom and a smaller but quaintly decorated guest room, both of which are well illuminated and have double beds. It has a lovely lounge and dining room, a bathroom with bath tub, two beautiful balconies and an indoor patio. The kitchen is large and has all amenities required to cook and feel at home.

It can be said without hesitation that this flat enjoys the best location on offer for a holiday in Madrid. Practically a stone's throw away from Madrid's 3 most important art galleries (Prado, Thyssen and Reina Sofia), it straddles the historic Barrio de las Letras and the Huertas Neighbourhoods with their cultural offer and bustling nightlife, while being a 5 minute walk away from Madrid’s famous Retiro Park and 10 minutes from walk from the Puerta del Sol. The street itself is beautiful, lined with bars, restaurants and taverns but the flat is very quiet at night. All of central Madrid (Sol, Gran Via, Lavapies, Plaza Mayor) is within walking distance from the flat..

The flat is the former home of the current owner and will be so again in the near future. It is clean, quiet, family friendly and has a distinctly homely feel to it. No unpleasant surprises!

  • Alex's apartment was comfortable, airy and afforded us a very pleasant stay. Alex is very genial and amenable (and very well traveled). We had an issue with the hot water not working on day 1 and he came over and helped fix it before the day ended. His apartment is over 300 years old, so it has its period charm and quirks. My favorite quirk was the clothes line where you hang your clothes to dry. Reminded me of my childhood in India.
    The location of this apartment is fantastic. We walked to Retiro Park several times. We also were able to hunt out a wonderful gluten free bakery (Celicioso) that was around 10 minutes away. Our stay in Madrid was my favorite part of our trip and Alex's apartment add to that sentiment.

  • My family of four had a wonderful stay at the apartment. Alex was a responsible, considerate, and friendly host. He provided excellent communication, responding quickly to my questions prior to arrival and kept in touch during our stay. The location of the flat was ideal. The street location was quiet, though convenient commercial areas were nearby. The area felt safe, while we walked to the many neighborhood restaurants late in the evening. Around the corner is the Rick Steves recommended tapas bars area. We walked to all the Madrid sights that we visited. The apartment was spacious, clean, and sunny in the front rooms. It had two comfortable bedrooms with additional sleeping options available, good kitchen facilities, washer, and relaxing lounge seating and dining areas. The apartment's description and positive reviews are true as stated. Highly recommend.

  • We enjoyed our one month stay at Alex's very much. It was located conveniently to everything you want to do in Madrid. The unit was as it is described. We will not hesitate to come back again.

  • I stayed with Alex' place twice from early March to mid April 2014 and found it to ideally suited to some of Madrid's finest attatrctoins. Walking the surrounding streets in early evening and returning to the apartment for a glass of wine with the balcony open is something I will always fondly remember. Apartment has excellent beds which afforded a consistent sound night's sleep. Alex was an outstanding host and I would rent from him again.

  • Appartment very well located, calm and clean.
    Alex and Derek were great hosts, available at all times.

    Thanks a lot,

  • Our stay in Alex's apartment was wonderful. The apartment is great - clean, spacious, well equipped. We had no complains at all. And it is perfectly situated in Madrid - walking distance from everywhere, can't get any better than that!
    The host Alex was also very nice and helpful !

  • Alex was a great host, always responded to questions very quickly and answered thoroughly. Very friendly and honest. We were met by Derek and everything about the apt was as stated in profile and reviews. Great location, comfy beds and everything we needed for a comfortable stay.

    We have already recommended this apt to others who will be visiting Madrid. We were very happy with our stay and our expectations for our trip were exceeded with the addition of this wonderful apt.

  • If you want to visit all the main Madrid museums by walk, you have to stay in this flat. Moreover flat’s situated in the very literary district: in the Servantes street, very close to Institute of Servantes and Museum of Lope de Vega. This district is very beatiful and full of trees: in good weather you may walk in platan avenue or in the famouse Retiro park. The house, where is a flat, is very old, with its own history and traditions, but it’s clean and comfortable, with elevator and concierge. The flat is big and nice. In two rooms there are big windows with wooden jalousie. The flat has a heating: it’s very usefull in winter time. We stayed here for a month with our 2-years son. The hostes provides us a baby cot. They are nice, friendly and helpful: all problemes we had they tried to solve.

    December 2013
  • This is generous sized two bedroom apartment in the museum end of town. Good cafés/ restaurants nearby. Can recommend el almacen del pan just two streets away at calle moraine 39.
    Derek greeted us in Alex's absence,and was extremely helpful,emailing me a couple of times with details of Real Madrid's movements. Can highly recommend this apartment,close to everything we needed.

    November 2013
  • Was a very wonderful stay we had all the amenities of home. To do laundry was such a luxury we enjoyed the clean clothes. Your place is in the heart of the city and we could walk to all the sites. Would love to come visit again.

About
Hi! I’m a young professional working in banking. I am often away for work and am renting out my own home in central Madrid, since I barely use it now. It’s a place I love and is in my opinion by far the best located place in the entire city, not just on this site. I´ll be looking forward to meeting you I will make your stay as pleasant and comfortable as possible. I speak fluent English, Spanish and French so please do get in touch if you are interested.
