About This Listing
Comfortable apartment close to the Underground Station "Alonso Martinez". You will like staying here as it keeps the old Spanish style while it is very comfortable and update.
This apartment is located in a large and stately building in Genova Street in Madrid. This building was built in 1870 with noble materials: thick walls, wood and natural stones. These thick and well constructed walls isolate from heat and cold.
The apartment has 2 bedrooms and one bathroom (WC separated from the bath and shower). Beds are a queen sized bed and 2 single beds in the second bedroom. The kitchen is a very old kitchen recently refurbished keeping its ancient format but with newly equipment for cooking. It has all equipment needed such as microwave, dish washer, washing machine, etc.
Very comfortable furniture in different styles mixed with some antic details. Everything needed in order to be comfortable in the very heart of Madrid and feel you “at home”. The apartment has heating for the cold days of winter.
This apartment is at the heart of Madrid. Many attractions are at walking distance: Columbus Sq, National Library, Paseo Castellana, Goya St, Alonso Martinez Sq, El Prado Museum, Thyssen Museum, etc. It is very well communicated by metro and bus.
It is sorrounded by restaurants and tapas bars: just at a scroll you will find many of them.
We offer breakfast included every morning: Coffee, Tea, biscuits and bread, butter and jam, oranges, etc.
Guests will have Access to everything in the apartment and commun áreas of the building
Interaction with Guests
We usually welcome guests and explain to them about the apartment and the área. And we are always available in case they need whatever
I love this área as it quiet but close to the shopping área and main Museums. And very well communicated by metro and bus
The metro station Alonso Martínez is in front of the apartment. And from Colon sq there are fequent buses
El edificio es tranquilo por las noches ya que actualmente está habitado sobre todo por oficinas y escuelas. Pero viven algunas personas mayores, por lo que se ruega no hacer demasiado ruido
A friend & I found the flat a great place to base ourselves from to explore Madrid. Our arrival was smooth & getting into the flat easy. It was great to have the space to cook, make hot drinks & a living room in addition to the kitchen. It was fun to be staying in an old-style Madrid flat - with an old kitchen range, ability to hang out clothes to dry on line outside balcony-type doors. We very much enjoyed chatting with Pilar's aunt.
Wonderful apartment in central Madrid with a charming old world feel. Sleeps 4 very comfortably (with better beds than I've had at other apartments). Roomy, well equipped kitchen with interesting original fixtures, as well as modern dishwasher. Good shower and lots of hot water. The host Pilar was very responsive and helpful and everything went smoothly. Apartment is located at the rear of the building, facing an inner courtyard/alley, so it was very quiet at night...rare for Madrid. Good wifi. Altogether a very comfortable stay, and recommended.
We had an absolutely wonderful visit to Madrid. The apartment was perfect for our family of four and the location was outstanding - walking to Prado, Sol, La Latina or the Palace is all doable or the Metro is right down the street. The apartment was comfortable and had everything we needed. Many thanks. The Murphy's
Excellent location, and a very quiet and charming flat. We felt like we were living in another century, a piece of old Spain. It's a romantic, eccentric place. Pilar was responsive and helpful on email. Her aunt, who lives next door, is very kind and friendly. We could walk everywhere - shops, restaurants and cafes, the museums and parks.
We loved our stay here. There was lots of room and a convenient kitchen. Our hosts were cordial and helpful. The location is superb and made it easy to learn the city, its metro, and lots of nearby cultural sites.
