COZY FLAT IN HISTORIC MADRID WF·AC

Apartment - Entire home/apt · Plaza Cascorro, Madrid, Community of Madrid 28005, Spain

Charming apartment in the historical center of Madrid, just in the "Plaza del Rastro" where the legendary flea market is.
Only 300 meters from the Plaza Mayor and very close to Sol, Royal Palace, Atocha station, museums, La Latina, etc.

The Space

Lovely apartment located in Madrid´s downtown historical neighborhood. It is right on Cascorro Square, where the Rastro legendary flee market is set every Sunday and holidays. The apartment is only a block away from La Latina metro station and from a Parking lot. It is well connected, close to several buses and metro lines.

The Plaza Mayor (Main Square) is only three blocks away, and most of the main city highlights such as Sol, Royal Palace, El Mercado de San Miguel, Almudena Cathedral, Atocha Train Station, Prado and Reina Sofia Museums and Vistillas neighborhood are within a short walking distance.

Nearby you will find many supermarkets, fruit shops, bars and restaurants and the traditional Mercado de la Cebada and Mercado de San Miguel.

La Latina is a historical and dynamic neighborhood. It is known by its bohemian artistic life and its wide variety of “tapas” restaurants and “pintxos” bars. It has a great atmosphere and it is very safe.

The apartment is very bright and cozy and it´s on the 5th floor. There is no elevator, but if my guests are carrying heavy luggage, I usually help them out. It´s a quiet place with wooden ceiling beams in view and many other natural wood pieces of furniture. You can also get a relaxing bath in the bathtub.

It has led TV 32", Wi Fi Internet, air conditioning and heating, a double bed (sheets and towels included), bed linen, double sofa-cama, washing machine, induction stove, refrigerator, microwave, toaster, coffee maker, iron, cutlery, breakfast bar with stools, desk and closet.

- A set of sheets for every two people and a set of towels for each person are included (daily sheets replacement is not included).
-If you are looking for a pick up service from the airport ask me for advise
-If you want breakfast, an extra set of bedding, baby crib, Housekeeper, etc., let me know.

I will be happy to assist you with any question or concern and I´ll give you my advice and tips on the best options to eat and walk around Madrid (that does not always appear in tourist guides)

  • Gabriel is a great host and was very nice throughout our entire stay.
    We took the ride from the airport option and it was very comfortable.

    The apartment is cosy and comfortable, it is located very close to all central attractions in Madrid. The internet worked fine and the kitchen was fully equipped with all the necessary appliances.

    Only problem were that the hot water have ran out after 7 minutes so it is not possible for two people to take a shower.
    The bed wasn't that comfortable for us and please take in mind that climbing up 5 floors is not as easy after a long day walking around Madrid.

  • It is a good apartment near the center and near Metro-Station La Latina. Distance to Plaza Mayor is about half kilometer. It is good for two persons. All is clean and in good conditions. All agreements were hold. But there is no elavator ...

  • El apartamento está en una zona muy céntrica, en la famosa plaza de Cascorro, donde tiene lugar el famoso rastro de Madrid los domingos, en un inmueble restaurado, puesto con mucho gusto y cuidado, todo muy limpio, arreglado, coqueto y bonito.
    No conocimos a Gabriel en persona, pero dejó a dos personas muy amables encargadas de recibirnos, que nos trataron muy bien y nos informaron de todos lo pormenores. Tengo que agradecer además a los tres porque reservamos en ese mismo día y todo fue muy rápido e improvisado.
    La única advertencia para viajeros, es que no carguéis con mucho equipaje porque no hay ascensor, esto ya lo sabíamos porque Gabriel nos advirtió.

  • A comfortable small apartment in a fabulous central location. Up five flights of stairs, good way to work off the tapas and beer.

  • Das Appartement ist sehr gut gelegen und geschmackvoll eingerichtet. Es ist alles da, was man braucht und der Kontakt mit Gabriel war bestens. Die Sauberkeit der Badewanne hat uns allerdings nicht überzeugt

  • Gabriel was a great host. Friendly engaging ans very personable. We stayed at his place twice on our trip. As we arrived and then just as we were leaving for a total time of 5 days. He picked us up at the airport and was a stellar help as the airline lost part of our luggage. He called and checked with them for us and basically made a bad experience much, much better. He also supplied lots of good suggestions for places to eat and sites nearby to visit.
    His place is centrally located so you can walk to many major venues such as the Prado, Plaza Mayor, the Thyssen-Bornemisza. For the Rastro Market you only need to step out your door.
    The apartment was well supplied and great for a couple. Air conditioning worked great. The only consideration are the stairs which for some people might be an issue. We are in our 60s and managed them fine. Gabriel gallantly hauled our luggage up for us which was after a very long flight much appreciated. Thanks Gabriel we really enjoyed meeting you and getting to know a bit of Madrid.

  • One if the best places we have stayed at! Gabriel was a fantastic host and obliged to be a wonderful host.

    The flat is in wonderful location, we enjoyed walks through all of the best parts of the city from our base close to Metro stations, La Latina, Markets, cultural delights.

    The generosity of the host and the perfect location of the apartment should not be understated.

    The kitchen was even equipped with an induction cooktop, and if needed a double sofa bed can be folded out so the apartment, although cosy, can sleep 4 people.

    5 out of 5 stars!!!!!

  • This was a great location, near everything and easily accessible by the Metro. Gabriel picked us up at the airport, which was FANTASTIC! It was a secure building and great AC!! Washing machine helped and so did the map books Gabriel had.

    The only drawback with this location is the MANY stairs, 111 to be exact. Do NOT take a lot of luggage!

  • I stayed with my boyfriend in the apartment for two nights. The apartment is in a great location, we didn't need to take any metro or buses..
    the apartment is very nice, excellent for tow people.
    The only problem is that it is in the fifth floor without a lift.
