Overview

About the property

1 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 4

Perfect alternative to an expensive hotel room without giving up luxury or location! The Apartment is on a third floor with elevator, in a completely new building inside, but with original facade. It's on, very popular, Calle de Huertas. Very close to Prado, Thyssen and Reina Sofia Museums and the Palacio Real. Situated in th Historic Center of Madrid, the famous Barrio de las Letras. The apartment has a king size bed, plus additional sofa beds in the living room. Lots of light and smack dab in the middle of all the happening places. The bedroom has 3 walls and is not totally private. A wall/closet separates the living room from the bedroom. You can see it in the pictures.

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, Mercado de San Miguel and also to Parque del Retiro. Really a perfect Location.

About Gorete Fieira Novack

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.

Why Gorete Fieira Novack chose Cortes

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.

Great stay in a great place!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay in this apartment was much more than what we could have anticipated. Not only were we provided with every amenity imaginable, but also the location was ideal as it was in walking distance to just about EVERYTHING. Communication with Gorete was excellent from the minute we booked our stay until it sadly was time to leave. If ever we are fortunate enough to visit Madrid again, Calle de las Huertas, 12 will be our first choice!

Great place, great location, great information

  • 5 of 5

We truly enjoyed our stay in Madrid. The location was perfect for us as we could walk to all the sights, museums, restaurants etc. We were provided with lots of information about Madrid before arrival that helped enormously with our planning. It was so nice to have someone meet us at the door and to respond quickly to any questions we had. The apartment is well equipped, with a great bathroom, living, dining and sleeping areas and kitchen. Highly recommended

A Marvelous Place in Madrid

  • 5 of 5

I completely agree with all of the rave reviews for Gorete's apartments. We have stayed in many apartments, and this was one of the very best, for all the reasons so many others have listed. I want to add just a couple of observations. If you have never done an apartment rental, especially in a country where you don't live, this would be a great first time experience. Just understand that you will be spoiled and hooked on this as the way to travel. Also, to show Gorete's thoughtfulness, you have to understand that Calle de las Huertas is very lively all night long. If the noise bothers you, no worries! Gorete has earplugs in a basket of toiletries in the bathroom. We have stayed in places that gave us a bed, a toilet and a shower and not much else. Gorete gives you earplugs. She really has thought of everything to insure that you have a wonderful stay in beautiful and vibrant Madrid.

Absolutely loved our home in Madrid!

  • 5 of 5

From my first contact with Gorete to my actual stay... everything was perfect. She is a perfect hostess and a lovely person! I feel like I have a new friend in Madrid! I hate to repeat what other travelers have said.. but everything about this apartment was great! It has everything you could possibly need or want. Very clean and super comfortable... and a perfect location.... we walked everywhere! It is a beautiful building on a cute lively street.. but close the french doors and it is perfectly quiet! we loved everything about this apartment and hope to return to Madrid some day. I would not think of staying anywhere else.. If any of her apartments are available for your stay... don't hesitate..Book!

Lots of good things, some less so

  • 3 of 5

This apartment is efficiently set up, very clean and well managed. The location gives access to everything Madrid offers. The apartment faces a pedestrianized street which is a main artery and noisy at all hours. Madrid is a nocturnal city and while the noise level is muted to a degree in the bedroom area, anyone using the spare bed in the living area will be listening to Madrid street life til dawn.

There is currently construction underway at buildings immediately across the road and adjacent to the apartment. This commenced at approximately 0830 and often involved material delivery at night.

Lovely city, great central apartment but bring quality ear plugs.
