300 m2 luxurious flat officially protected by Bellas Artes located in the Madrid’s old quarter Las Letras’ neighborhood, that time ago was home of the emblematic Spanish writer awarded with the Literature Nobel prize Jacinto Benavente.
Strategically sited just minutes away from the city’s main attractions: Museo del Prado, Museo Thyssen, Puerta del Sol, Plaza Mayor, Plaza Santa Ana, Palacio de Oriente, Teatro Real, Barrio de los Austrias, etc.
It is the perfect place to spend some days in this magnificent city and enjoy the unique conveniences that this fantastic place offers for the day and evenings with restaurants and pubs that made the well known “movida madrileña, Huertas street, San Miguel market, Cava Baja, movie theatres, theatres, etc.
The flat is located on the half-third floor of this historical building, very bright with huge windows and enclosed balcony. It has doorman during the day, 4 bedrooms (1 double room in suite with dressing room, 2 double rooms, 1 room with two single beds) 3 bathrooms fully equipped, 1 toilette, 2 living rooms, 40 m2 kitchen (fridge, cook, oven, microwave oven, coffee machine, dishwasher, toaster, kettle, etc.), TV, wifi, satellite television, air conditioning and heating.
The house was fully refurbished few years ago keeping the charm of the stately homes of the 19th century with its wooden floors, high ceilings, original closings –with double glass-; treated with care and attention to detail always respecting the original structure but offering the best isolation and amenities of the 21st century.
Four of us shared this spacious, gorgeous, beautifully furnished, well located apartment within very easy walking distance of la Plaza Major. We loved every moment of being there!
I have stayed in many VRBO and Homeaway properties. This is one of the best and very well suited for 8 people. I traveled to Madrid with my wife and our four adult children/spouse. The flat is on a busy street which can be a little loud, but the flat is well insulated and the tradeoff is that you are in the heart of the best part of Madrid. You can walk just about everywhere to countless great restaurants, bars, museums, and other sites. The flat is very comfortable, and Jean Michel's hospitality is unmatched. He does absolutely all he can to make your stay as easy as possible. If you are looking for a place that is right for 6-8 adults that want a touch of privacy, look no further.
My travelling partners thanked me over and over for reserving this marvelous home for us. Jean Michel was the most gracious host. Everything was so perfect that we never needed to reach out to him, but we knew he was a sincerely caring person and would help us in any way we might need, whether it be house related or just tourist information. In the photos the home looks very grand and you might worry that the atmosphere might be stiff and chilly, but in actuality it feels like you're staying in a (rich) friend's much-loved home. So much room! We had three couples on our trip and we all felt we had wonderful privacy because of the way the bedrooms are separated. The giant walk-in closet in the master bath is dream worthy. Oh how I have longed for it while smashing clothes into my own dinky closet at home. The eat-in kitchen had everything we needed (and more). Having two living rooms to lounge around in was nice since some might want to chat and some might watch TV. And the location! The Plaza de Santa Ana is incredibly close and we spent every evening there. The train station is a straight shot down the street. You wouldn't want to walk there with luggage, but we enjoyed strolling down to it when we took a day trip to Segovia. I've waited far too long to review this home, and I've been on several other trips since we stayed here, but this home was special and has lingered in my head. If you're the person responsible for making the lodging decision on your trip to Madrid you need look no further.
This apartment is truly amazing and totally deserves its five star rating. Jean Michel the owner provides first class service from the time of booking to the time you leave the apartment.. His attention to detail, his commitment to ensuring our stay was enjoyable and there was nothing that was too much trouble, he was extremely helpful when one our excursions had to be cancelled and helped rearrange which was very much appreciated. The apartment itself was amazing and very spacious and we immediately felt at home as Jean Michel passionately told us about when he lived with his family in the apartment and the history behind some of the furniture and pictures. The location was central close to the square , restaurants and the amazing market.
Thank you very much Jean Michel we will be returning with our husbands next year.
We recently stayed at this fantastic apartment and had an amazing time. The apartment was spacious and very luxurious. The comfort and size of the rooms made our stay so much more enjoyable as well as the location. We were able to walk to all the main areas around the Centre of Madrid which was perfect. We were a group of 6 females and the safety aspect was very important to us. Jean Michael met us at the apartment and gave us a guided tour of where everything was and how all the appliances worked, he was very proud of his home and rightly so. Nothing was too much trouble for him. I would definitely recommend this apartment and hope to revisit again. Thank you Jean Michael we hope to see you again soon!!!
I totally agree with all the other reviews that have come before mine that this apartment and its owner Jean Michel lives up to a full 5 Stars. First the booking and support from Jean before we arrived was better than I have ever experienced before with any other VRBO . His attention to detail, his commitment to getting a baby bed and highchair available was both unexpected and very appreciated. Second the apartment is better than the pictures. Its a family home that makes one feel at home immediately especially after Jean Michel tells you about his family living there for a decade with the same furniture and pictures. The location could not have been better either. Christmas time in Madrid is wonderful and this apartment is located right in the middle of everything but still quiet.
We were a family of 9 in total with 8 adults and 1 child 1 years old. We cooked in the apartment 50-60% of the time and also had a chef come in for a day. The layout of the rooms made for plenty of room for everyone to feel comfortable and since we all travelled from different parts of the world space to get into the time zone.
I would highly recommend this apartment to anyone wanting to spend time in Madrid. We spent 2 weeks here and wished we could have stayed longer. Thank you very much Jean Michel.
