This location is incredible. We loved spending time on the balcony overlooking the Plaza Mayor, and shops and restaurants are just a short walk downstairs! The apartment is luxurious, bright and clean, and the bed incredibly comfortable! We would love to stay here again in the summertime.
I have stayed in this apartment on five separate occasions and have never once
been disappointed. It's stylishly furnished, comfortable and well kitted out with all you might need. It's central location makes it easy to walk to all the main attractions, and staying in the historic Plaza Mayor itself is a great experience.
The perfect apartment in the perfect location. There was plenty of space for our family of four (2 adults and 2 toddlers). Waking up every morning to the bustling activities of Plaza Mayor was a unique experience for us and our kids. The kitchen was equipped with everything we needed and there were even toys for the kids! We can’t wait to return!
Very high quality. "Surgically" clean, absolutely spotless. Great view over Plaza. Very well furnished. Absolutely central location. Very close to food market at Plaza St Miguel. Highly recommended for stay in Madrid, much better than hotel accommodation. Thank you Noelia.
The apartment was beautifully decorated, large and bright, with all windows opening toward one of the most important squares in old Madrid, Plaza Mayor. It is a very busy historical plaza, always filled with people in movement or sitting at restaurants and bars. One can see the continuous activity of the plaza from the apartment balconies. For us who live in a residential Los Angeles area, and we seldom see people :-)) this was wonderful. Especially since once you close the double windows the noise disappears completely. The apartment was extremely clean, and had a beautiful kitchen where the hosts left coffee (for an expresso machine), croissants, oil, vinegar, salt, pepper. You had everything you need in case you planned to cook at home. But there are many restaurants around, at a very short walking distance (those in the plaza are at 1-2 minute walking, but more expensive). The hosts have a book in the apartment where you can look at their selected list of restaurants, some with terraces with beautiful views, and markets (there are several very close by). Then there is (at 5 min walk) the famous San Miguel Market, where one can buy vegetables, fruit, meat, fish, but also have a good coffee or various types of tapas or pinchos... delicious and of all kinds: with mozzarela, with fish, with Spanish Serrano ham, etc. As I adore sea food I bought (twice) a plate with scallops which the seller prepares in the microwave (and puts all kinds of condiments... they are delicious). You can eat while drinking a non-alchoolic drink or a glass of wine (prices are not cheap but the athmosphere is pleasant, there are tourists and locals, and the food is good!). The location is beautiful. You can take the touristic bus from only 5 min walk from the apartment. You can have a hot chocolate with churros (delicious) at also 5 min from the apartment, at Gines Coffee shop (appearing in the selective list of your host). The hosts (Mario and Noelia) are perfect: they communicate with ease in English, and very promptly, they get out of their way to give you thorough instructions before you get to their place, as well as during your stay. If you want to stay in the middle of beautiful old town Madrid, in a luxurious place, I highly recommend this apartment. Oh, I forgot, it also has air conditioning which for summer is vital. It is very silent and efficient. Certainly if we will ever go back to Madrid, that is where we will say. We already sent pictures with the apartment and the view from it to all our friends...
