The Space

We are renting this newly refurbished (Feb 2013), sunny, with lots of charm and super central apartment in a quiet semi pedestrian street of the magic and charming neighbourhood of Cortes. This is the perfect place if you are looking for a silent and cozy apartment to feel like home, walking distance to all the sights in Madrid: the museums, entertainment and parks... The Prado museum is just 3 minutes walk from the apartment.

The apartment is located in the third floor of a walk up building (so NO elevator, like most buildings in central Madrid, but we are always willing to help you carrying your luggage upstairs). The apartment and all the furniture and amenities are brand new and despite of it being in a vibrant neighbourhood, the street where it is located is very quiet and semi pedestrian (only residents and taxies are allowed, so there is no car’s noise) and very silent, so perfect for your night sleep after a whole day visiting Madrid.
It has:
* 1 Bedroom with a double bed (king size), a TV, a closet and a desk in case you need to work, check emails or continue planning your trip.
* 1 Sofa bed in the living room that can be turned into a super comfy double bed for 2 additional people.
* Kitchen fully equipped with anything you need to cook and eat, including the stove, microwave with grill, refrigerator, washing machine, kettle and toaster. There is no drier but there (email hidden) that you can use..
* A living room with dining table for 4, sofa, radio and a 39 inches TV.
* A bathroom with shower.
* Wi-Fi is also available during your stay, how not ;)
* MOVIES: Besides the regular TV channels and radio, you can watch a selection of MOVIES directly on the TV system

Of couse, fresh linen is provided, as well as iron, hairdryer, etc. If you think there is something missing, we'll be happy to have your feedback in order to continue improving the apartment.

Cortes is also known as el "Barrio de las Letras," literary Madrid. This is where Spain's most celebrated Golden Age authors - Miguel de Cervantes, Lope de Vega, Calderón de la Barca, Tirso de Molina - lived during the 17th century. Without hesitation we can say that this is the best and nicest neighbourhood in central Madrid. You’ll immediately note how elegant the neighbourhood is from an architectural standpoint. The streets radiating off its core, Plaza de Santa Ana, are packed with tapas bars and bars to hang out.
Every first Saturday of the month the Frog’s market takes place in the streets of Cortes. Retailers of the area (including designers, vintage clothes, furniture and more) participate in this monthly market.

The location of the apartment is perfect to visit Madrid without even having to use our good public transport network. Actually, within 15 minutes walking you can reach the main museums in town (Prado, Reina Sofia and Thyssen Bornemisza), the Retiro Park, Gran Via and its neoclassic architecture, the Rastro and La Latina, etc. But in any case, the nearest metro stop (Antón Martín) is just 3 minutes away. Here you can catch Line 1, that will take you to Atocha Renfe (your arrival point if you get to town by train or with the shuttle train/bus from the airport).

For sure, you won't have problems to move around from here.


We try to be as flexible as possible with your check in so as to allow you to get into the apartment as soon as you get downtown. Let us know your schedules and we'll work it out! However, if you arrive from 10pm to 12pm there is a LATE CHECK IN FEE of 15 euro payable upon arrival. From 12pm to 1.30am, the LATE CHECK IN FEE is 25 euro.

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • The apartment is very nice, modern and very clean. It had all the you require for a comfortable holiday and the location is very good to get access to many places in Madrid. We practically walked everywhere. There is a very nice cafe with outdoor table at thieves of the road where we spent many mornings enjoying the beautiful Madrid summer sun. The whole booking experience was smooth and the host was very quick at responding to any if our queries.
    We were 100% satisfied with our choice and we would recommend this apartment to our friends.

  • Great place to stay in Madrid. On a quiet street but still close to all the action in Huertas, Santa Ana Plaza and La Latina, all 5-10 minutes walk away. Also a 10 minute walk to Atocha station if you want to visit Toledo. The apartment itself is clean and spacious.

  • comfortable and clean apartment in a pleasant central neighborhood, particularly suited for the visit of museums and art galleries. Great areas for design shops as well - some really good ones just down the street.
    The A/C is efficient and quiet, the bed very comfortable.
    highly recommended place.

  • We had a wonderful experience at Vanessa and Oscar's apartment. The location is fantastic, very central and at a walking distance to the Prado museum, Puerta del Sol, the botanical garden, several restaurants, bakeries, stores and metro stations.

    Vanessa went out of her way to make us feel at home during our stay. The place was very clean and well equipped. We highly recommend it and would stay there again whenever we go back to Madrid!

  • Perfect in every way. Immaculate, stylish, newly renovated flat. Awesome location. Fast wifi, new appliances. Oscar was very helpful and responded quickly to all of my inquiries.

    This is the second flat I've rented from Oscar and Vanessa and both experiences exceeded my expectations. Perfect hosts!!

  • Fantastic in every way!

  • Perfect apartment in a perfect location! Extremely helpful hosts. Vanessa helped my husband find a physiotherapist when he needed one and even helped him get to the appt! Booked an early morning taxi for us and provided absolutely excellent recommendations for food. We walked to everything we wanted to see easily. Only downside for us was carrying our stroller up the stairs but that was no big deal for us. Would love to stay again!

  • Excellent location and wonderful apartment! Everything seems new. The bed is comfortable, the view from the balcony is nice, it's not noisy at all, the shower is great. I loved this place. Too bad I couldn't stay longer because it was already booked.

  • Oscar and Vanessa (and Barbara, on arrival) were extremely helpful and attentive from the time we booked their flat to when we asked for restaurant suggestions to when we needed quick advice on where to buy some fresh shrimp. Their place is in a terrific neighborhood, on a mostly quiet and very pleasant street, and the apartment itself is perfect (comfortable bed, first-rate shower) and well-equipped (French press and Moka pot). We were in Madrid for almost a week--we'd repeat at this apartment without hesitation.

Hi!! We welcome you to Spain and we wish you a good stay in Madrid! Oscar works as a photographer and Vanessa studies drama and theatre production and management. However, until some years ago Oscar was an engineer and Vanessa (email hidden). And then one day we decided to turn our lifes up side down and follow our real passions. We are best friends and on May 2012 we decided to move forward and enroll in a small business together. Vanessa had been hosting with Airbnb for 2 years (renting the spare (email hidden) in Madrid/Milan and her apartment in Barcelona) and her experience (upgraded to Superhost in early 2011) was so positive that we decided we could also help other owners that don't live in town or don't have the time to rent their properties to travelers as you. And this is what we are doing now together. Since from September 2013 Vanessa is very busy with her drama studies, we've asked our friend Ana to help us with the flats. So now we are 3 people! More about us, we love to travel: in 2012 Vanessa traveled to Greece with her backpack and Oscar spent a few months working in France. Last summer Oscar repeated the French experience while Vanessa explored Malaysia during a month and a half. We are also keen in meeting new people and learning new things from them. We enjoy little life pleasures like riding our bicycles or growing our small organic vegetables gardens (each of us has one). We like eco-friendly environments since we care a lot about our planet. During weekends, we have our friend Moi who helps us with check ins and cleanings. We will help you to find you like home in this beautiful city and we look forward to having the opportunity to meet you soon!! Vanessa & Oscar
