Overview

Photos and Description of this 1 bedroom holiday apartment in Retiro - At Home in Madrid near Prado 3

1 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 4

Perfect alternative to expensive hotel room without giving up luxury or location! Third floor with elevator, in completely brand new building inside, but with original facade outside on popular Huertas street, extremely close to Prado, Thyssen and Reina Sofia Museums and the Palacio Real, in historic center of Madrid, the famous Barrio de las Letras. The apartment has two twin beds that can be joined for a king bed, plus additional sofa beds in the living room. Lots of light and smack dab in the middle of all the happening places. We have lived in Madrid for the past 12 years, glad to help you choose the best places to visit in and around Madrid.

The apartment is right next to Plaza de Santa Ana. Near Puerta del Sol and the Plaza Mayor. You can walk to La Cava Baja, a street full of restaurants and little bars. Also, the Mercado de San Miguel. Great meeting place and good tapas. Following is a review word-for-word from one of recent guests:

Review #11285894 “The best place in the best neighborhood”

After a two hour delay into Madrid, we arrived at our new home. That's what it felt like immediately. Spotless, comfortable, inviting. Everything we would need was there, and if it wasn't, Gorete would have provided it. She was there to meet us and to explain everything. She really cares about her guests, from the beginning inquiry until the final goodby. We have rented many places in our European travels and this may have been the easiest transaction and certainly one of the best places to stay. Best of all the neighborhood - the Barrio de las Letras - was a delightful area to explore. Everything was there, not just the cafes but wonderful shops, theaters, cinema, jazz clubs, flamenco...and some of the best museums in the world were a short walk away. You can walk everywhere, but if you need it, the Metro is nearby and a cab stand is a block away. For anyone lucky enough to stay here, some of our tips for best eating: VI Cool of course (right downstairs), but also Dionisos, Viet Nan (these two is you want a break from tapas), Casa Alberto, La Mucca, and the beautiful Ganz. Don't miss the shops on Leon and San Pedro. Just explore. There is so much to see. Then come home to your beautiful quiet apartment with a wonderful bed and a place to read and relax. We're already thinking about another trip to this vibrant city and of course we would stay at one of Gorete's "At Home In Madrid" apartments.

About Gorete Fieira Novack

We have this property and 4 more apartments, in the same building, in downtown Madrid and would like to make it available to Madrid visitors and do everything we can to make sure your stay is enjoyable and comfortable! We have been living in Madrid since the year 2000, so we are knowleageable and delighted to share all the information you may need to feel like a local.

Gorete Fieira Novack purchased this apartment in 2008

Why Gorete Fieira Novack chose Retiro

Location, location, location! This is smack-dab in the middle of the historic Barrio de las Letras (Literature Neighborhood) very romantic, safe and with countless places to eat, people-watch, on a pedestrian street (no traffic).

What makes this apartment unique

The building was completely gutted a few years ago and they saved the facade and the 100 year old staircase, but everything else is brand-new modern construction. We have furnished and equipped the apartment with everything we would like to find in a rental, we use VRBO ourselves when we travel so we understand that small details are paramount. Besides, we have lived in Madrid for the past 14 years, so we are happy to steer you to the best suggestions, whether they are restaurants, site seeing, shopping, trendy restaurants, family places or unique Madrid experiences depending on your date of travel. Latest requests have been: Soccer games, bullfighting, day trips to Toledo, Segovia, and Avila.

Excellent location, modern accomodations, amazingly friendly & helpful owner and staff

  • 5 of 5

Stayed at this super apartment with our two teenage girls. The owner was amazingly friendly and helpful as we planned our trip, arrived, and got oriented to Madrid after a long flight. Recently renovated; all furnishings, appliances and bathroom are new and modern. Beds are very comfortable including the 2 sofas which the girls unfolded for sleeping. The total space was a little tight and the breakfast table a little small by American suburban standards but really everything we needed or could want in a major city center. Location is fantastic. Walked easily to the Prado, Retiro Park, Palacio Real, Puerta del Sol, Gran Via, Puerta de Alcala, etc. Owner had left a basket of cookies and wine and bottled water for us to enjoy on arrival. Also recommended restaurants, guided us to taxis and rail transportation. Owner and staff available by phone any time and on short notice. Apt has WiFi which worked fine. TV didn't work but think that was just because the cable went out perhaps due to rain storm. Building is very safe and secure. Elevator to apt is not large but fit 3 of us with some luggage. No hassle to take another ride down & up for a few more things. Wide staircase easy up and down our preference when we went out and returned each day. Places and people like this make HomeAway such a super choice when traveling.

Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent a great week in Madrid at this beautiful apartment. We were met by the owner, Gorete, a lovely, professional, personable, lady who speaks perfect English. She showed us around and presented us with a bottle of wine and a basket of the best tangerines that we have ever eaten. After introducing us to Jesus, the building manager, she gave us contact information in case we needed anything. The apartment itself is spectacular and I cannot recommend it highly enough. It has great WiFi, is immaculately clean, spacious, comfortable, nicely decorated, modern, well equipped and situated in a perfect spot in Madrid. We easily walked from the Atocha train station as well as to all of the major tourist sites of the city. It is in a very safe area with many nearby restaurants. Plaza del Sol and Plaza Mayor are literally only a 5 to 10 minute walk away.

Overall a great owner and apartment at a very reasonable price. Thank you Gorete for sharing your lovely home with us which made for a very special vacation.

Fabulous apartment, location and ownership.

  • 5 of 5

We loved the apartment, very clean and modern with a bright living room with large French doors. The location was perfect, tons of plazas and restaurants nearby. Owner was great; water, wine and cookies were waiting for us upon our arrival. We highly recommend this apartment and we will stay in one of Gorete's rentals upon our return.

Wonderful Apartment & Location

  • 5 of 5

This is a great 1 bedroom, 1 bathroom apartment in a perfect location. It is in the centre of everything, museums, shops, restaurants, and transportation. The famous Alberto restaurant was just steps from the front door of the building. It was also only a few minute walk to a metro station and a walking distance to main Atocha train station.

The apartment was impeccably clean, very functional, well-equipped, modern and lovely. Wifi worked great and the kitchen had everything you would need. The master bed was comfortable with very nice bedding. Plenty of snow white towels were provided.

The owner, Goreta, was just a reflection of the entire interior environment: professional, welcoming, lovely, friendly and helpful. She cares about her guests and went above and beyond to make our stay there the most pleasurable.

We hope to be able to visit again. I have already recommended this apartment to my children and friends. I highly recommend this property.

Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

I stayed at this property with my mother & two sons. Since I was traveling with a 73 yr. old & 2 youngsters, I wanted to make sure that we were within walking distance of the main attractions. This apartment definitely fit the bill. The only time that we took public transportation is when we arrived from the airport. It was an easy & fun walk to Puerta del Sol, Prado, Plaza Mayor, and Palacio Real, not to mention the great restaurants and bars. We even walked to the train station with all of our bags. The apartment itself was impeccably clean and well-equipped. There was plenty of room for 4. We hope to be able to visit again. I highly recommend this property.

Location Location

The location of this property is perfect. It is in the centre of everything, museums, shops, restaurants and bars. My husband and I walked everywhere but you are near the Underground and taxi ranks if you want to travel out further afield.

The apartment is lovely and modern and very well equipped.

Goreta was the perfect hostess - very professional and welcoming. I have already recommended this apartment to my friends. Perfect.

You will be smack-dab in the center of the historical center downtown Madrid! This is without exagerrating one of the best pedestrian street to be, because within 5 minutes walking you are at the Prado Museum, Reina Sofia Museum, Thyssen Museum, and the city center Puerta del Sol. 10 more minutes, and you are at the Royal Palace, Cibeles, Gran Via and we will make sure you feel At Home in Madrid, this is your home away from home. Comfortable, clean, safe and fun. Please let us know any particular events or sights (soccer games, bullfights, nearby day excursions to Toledo, Segovia or Avila) you´d like to enjoy during your experience of exploring the perfect-size city of Madrid.
