Humongous home with great style -- it was like staying in a palace. Amazing location right next to Plaza Mayor. Mercado San Miguel is a 4-5 min walk. We had a great time.
This was just what the Doctor prescribed! An apartment in the center of Madrid decorated with a refined eye and it comes with your own personal art collection.
The apartment is better in person even though the the photos are great that is used for the listing.
Jose and his sister were wonderful to deal with and had a very smooth checkin and exit.
I would highly suggest this apartment in Madrid.
We had and excellent time while vacationing in Madrid. In large part due to Jose Manuel apartment which is in the heart of the city. Mercedes our host gave us a warm welcome and guided us well. I highly recommend anyone wishing for a luxury and a centrally located apartment with all the amenities needed for a family.
Mejor que las fotos.
Si vuelvo a Madrid me vuelvo a quedar ahí!
This flat absolutely made our trip to Madrid. It is stunning and I never wanted to leave. Jose takes great care of this home - and it truly does feel like home. Check in and check out where a breeze. The location was spectacular. I wouldn't have changed a thing!
Mercedes, Jose's sister met us and showed us through the apartment. She was very nice and even arranged for a taxi to pick us up on our last day and take us to the airport.
The apartment itself was adequate for our purposes. It was a little noisy because of it's location but the location was very central to everything so I guess you can avoid the noise.
The apartment was perfect. It looks just like the photos - if not a little bigger. The interiors and artwork made it really special and we found it easy to make ourselves at home there. I stayed here with 3 friends, so I was a little concerned that the description made it sound like both bathrooms were en-suite, but the second bathroom is accessible from the hallway as well as the bedroom, so that made it easy for us to share.
The location is amazing - literally a minute from Plaza Mayor, only 5 minutes from Sol and all the bars & restaurants of La Latina (Cava Baja etc) are a short stroll away. There's a grocery store just around the corner for the essentials.
The air conditioning kept us cool, the noise was less than I expected for central Madrid (I was in the studio and always travel with earplugs) and... I'll say it again... it was just perfect!
I would definitely stay here again and highly recommend it to anyone else who is thinking of visiting Madrid.
