The area is ideal for tourism. The apartment is located in one of the most emblematic areas of Madrid, a few blocks from the Paseo del Prado, the Plaza de Santa Ana and the Calle Huertas, full of nice bars, art galleries, cafes and restaurants.
Perfect spot for discovering the historic heart of Madrid, within walking distance from the cities main attractions: Puerta del Sol, Gran Via, Renowned Museums (Prado, Thyssen, Reina Sofia and Caxia Forum) the Retiro Park and the Botanical Gardens.
Well connected with metro and buses and very close to the Atocha train station (one of Madrid's main transport hub).
No hay normas, simplemente cuidar el apartamento y lo que hay dentro, dejarlo razonablemente limpio y respetar el descanso de los vecinos.
Wonderful apartment in a great location! I was in a jam and Alicia definitely helped me out by sticking around for a late check. Apartment was super clean and an easy 5-10 minute walk from the museums or just turn the corner and you're on atoche with a bunch of shops and restaurants. Would definitely recommend this place.
The flat was clean, bright and nicely decorated - the photos in the listing give a good idea of what it's like. It looks out over a narrow, atmospheric cobbled street and there are lots of interesting artists' studios nearby. The location is really convenient for the museums and galleries, especially Thyssen-Bornemisza, Prada and Caixa Forum. They are all a short walk away. There are also grocery shops, restaurants and a metro station close by.
The street and building were rather noisy (shouting/loud singing/loud TV) while I was there, which is not really surprising since it is a densely populated street right in the centre of Madrid, but other reviews describe the street as being quiet so perhaps my experience was not typical... in any case, if you're planning to go out and enjoy the nightlife yourself then this is not such a big problem, and the fantastic location close to the museums is worth it, but maybe bring some earplugs if you're a light sleeper!
Alicia organised everything very efficiently. I didn't meet her in person but she kept in touch by text message both before and during my stay to check everything was fine.
Great and very cozy apartment perfectly located. Hosts are also very friendly and helpful. Would definitely recommend it.
El apartamento es espectacular, muy bonito y el barrio en el que esta situado (el barrio de las letras) es de lo mejor. Nos han recibido muy bien y el apartamento es tal cual como en las fotos, muy bonito. Gracias!
The location of this apartment is perfect for exploring Madrid's city center. We easily walked to the Prado, Huerta Street, Plaza Mayor, etc. The apartment was very clean, quiet and attractive. The air conditioning made August in Madrid comfortable. We also loved the neighborhood. There is a grocery store and numerous good places to eat just around the corner. The apartment had everything we needed; WiFi was particularly helpful to travelers. Although we didn't have a chance to meet Alicia, communication was timely and arrival and departure easy. We loved the apartment.
El apartamento es aún más acogedor que en las fotos. Muy agradable, práctico y lo mejor es la situación: a 10 minutos andando de Atocha, de los museos, a 15 de Sol, a 5 de Lavapies... La zona es tranquila y segura, y en el apartamento no se oye ni un ruido de noche!
Con Alicia la comunicación fue rápida y agradable, contestó enseguida a nuestras preguntas.
Además tuvieron el detalle de dejarnos el último día el apartamento durante todo el día en vez de tener que dejarlo a las 12h sin cargo adicional, al no haber otra reserva.
Hemos disfruta mucho nuestra estancia y estaremos encantados de repetir!
Lo recomendamos sin duda.
Alicia's apartment is fantastic. Right in the heart of town, within walking distance to the three major galleries, sights and good restaurants. Alicia was extremely friendly and helpful during our stay, and answered any questions we had promptly. The apartment was very clean and comfortable and secure with a well equipped kitchen if you wish to cook yourself. I will definitely be recommending this apartment to friends.
About the Host, Alicia
