Incredible location - short walks to Plaza Sol, Plaza Isabel & Mercado Central. Steps from the Plaza Mayor & great food & people watching. The apartment is huge!! Well appointed with most of what you need for your stay. If you need anything call Mercedes - host's sister & your problem is solved. We arrived 2 hours early & Mercedes allowed us to leave luggage in apartment. There is a small market around the corner for wine, cheeses, jamon, fruits & vegetables. Just enjoy! Only critique- could use better wifi.
This is a highly recommended property. The host communicated clearly and in an welcoming manner from the start, and his sister Mercedes who greeted us at the apartment was friendly, helpful and informative.
The apartment itself is perfectly located - Madrid is very easy to walk in, and most sights are within walking distance. The ambience, space, and décor are tasteful and delightful, and we felt at home very quickly. The apartment is well appointed for all purposes, and I can warmly recommend it for a perfect city break.
A great apartment. Super close to great sites and tapas (La Latina is fun!) and very quiet. Thanks!
Excelente atendimento do Jose Manuel
Excelente localização do apartamento
Parabéns a Jose Manuel e a equipe dele.

Eu e minhas amigas fomos muito bem recebidas pela Mercedes, irmã do José Manuel. O apartamento é bem grande e confortável, apesar de antigo (o que é normal para a Europa). A localização é excelente, perto de tudo. Embaixo do prédio tem um restaurante, muito legal, o Bistro Metro. Nossa estada no Plaza Mayor aristocratic apartment foi ótima, SUPER RECOMENDO!

It's no wonder that the reviews are stellar for this apartment that's located right in the best spot of Madrid.....it's truly just steps from Plaza Mayor. Everything was good with these accommodations --- it was super easy making the arrangements with José Manuel + his sister, Mercedes. And Mercedes was super flexible to meet us so that we could drop our luggage off early (before the cleaners were even complete with their work at the apartment).
The place is perfect, as there are two (best) back bedrooms that are completely quiet at night! I can't think of another urban place like that.
And the apartment is beautiful and equipped. It's a wonderful/gorgeous mix of old/historic and modern, and it works well....and really anyone would enjoy this place.
We loved the restaurant just below the flat: Metro Bistro. It was our best meal --- among many, many good ones in Madrid!
