“Very comfortable, centrally-located apartment for short or extended visits”

We enjoyed staying in this very comfortable apartment for five weeks. Within walking distance of most of the major tourist attractions of Madrid, the apartment is located in a very pleasant area with good restaurants and bars, small supermarkets, and other shops and facilities, including a branch of El Corte Inglés a few blocks away, adjacent to the Argüelles Metro Station and major bus routes. The apartment is well-equipped with reliable WiFi and a separate desk for computer use. We also made good use of the Copysell shop directly across the road for printing documents. The small kitchen and separate bathroom both served our needs very well. The bed was most comfortable as was the fold-out sofa-bed, used when we had a guest to stay for a weekend. Mary and her husband were extremely helpful with both information and practical assistance, carrying our luggage to the apartment on arrival and departure. The bustling street below quietens at night and the apartment is well insulated in terms of noise from the other apartments in the building. We would certainly return to this apartment on a future visit to Madrid.

We stayed in this lovely apartment in September, it was out first time in Madrid and the location was great. Within walking distance to most places of interest and plenty of cheap taxis right outside the door. The apartment was big and spacious, and a welcome pack of essentials had been left which was a lovely touch. Mary the owner was really friendly and met us off the underground, she was a really interesting person and it was great having a few chats with her. We would definitely recommend a visit to Madrid which is a really fun place and would not hesitate to stay at Ferraz apartments again.

“Lovely holiday”
Reviewed September 13, 2016 for a stay in September 2016

The apartment is on the 4th floor of a traditional 19th century terrace. It is simply decorated, clean, air conditioning and comfortable. Its location is on a busy city road close to an underground station and many places of interest. (See for yourself on Google Earth.) Do try to go to the nearby Museo Cerralbo. The amazing supermarket, El Corte Ingles is convenient so food shopping is easy. A "welcome pack" of wine, bread, butter, milk, coffee etc. was provided. The apartment is reasonably priced and what more than all that can anyone want? Mary and her husband, the owners, are very nice. Mary welcomed us at the underground station and we were helped with our luggage. We had long, enjoyable conversations and were advised on places to go. This was the second time we stayed at the apartment and hope to stay there again. Thank you for a lovely stay.

Mary, the owner, provided detailed instructions for us to take the metro from the airport and met us at Arguelles metro station.Mary had left us a great welcome pack of bread, butter, juice, milk, chocolates and wine. Mary was very attentive and great hostess, also, accompanied us to the bus station to show us how to go to Escorial. The apartment provide everything that you need if you want to cook. The metro was only few minutes walk away, but we didn't use it because the apartment was comfortable walking distance of the most attractions in the city.

“Misleading website photos”

people found this review helpful

Take note of these conditions:
Apartment on 4th Floor - no lift
Bedroom is internal with no natural light or ventilation just a noisy ceiling fan. Need to walk through dark bedroom to turn on light.
Cooling in summer is with ageing noisy air-conditioner
Kitchen & bathroom OK, but also without natural light or ventilation.
Owner asked for Euro150 deposit, in cash, by email just before arriving - not on contract. Returnable if apartment is (OK.?)on departure.
Good location.

Management Response
Jul 20, 2016
I am sorry that the apartment did not live up to your expectations, the many positive reviews that I have received show that this is an exception rather than the rule. The most frequent comment made by guests on arrival is that it is just like the photos, so the website would not appear to be misleading. Yes, there is no lift, this is not a secret and in fact, many guests mention it in their reviews. Please bear in mind that if an apartment for rent in Madrid has a lift, it will almost certainly be mentioned in the description, if not, it is best to enquire and/or check reviews. Perhaps you should have opted for more modern accommodation, this apartment is in a renovated nineteenth century building and retains many of its original features and layout – the interior bedroom is one of these. You don´t have to walk through the bedroom to turn on the lights, there are switches to the left of the door as you enter and inside, by the bedhead there are more switches and dimmers. The A/C unit is not new, however it is regularly serviced and is in good working order. That said, I will take note of your comments. Regarding the security deposit – it is referred to in a form I send out to all guests, with info on the apartment and requesting their arrival details etc. This is standard procedure and a sign of good faith. All of my guests can vouch that their deposit has been returned, in full, on departure.

My wife and I loved our time in Madrid. It was made all the better because of the welcome we received from our host and the convenient location of the apartment. A really lovely local neighbourhood within walking distance of the City Centre with a beautiful park one block away.Our host Mary Margaret was so accommodating, explaining all that the city had to offer and even helping me with organising an emergency dental appointment.We will be recommending the apartment to friends who are lucky enough to visit Spain.

We had lovely stay in the flat. Mary and her husband were very welcoming and provided us very good service (they even sent us back home the children's book we forgot!).

The flat which is on 4th floor feels like home and cosy. There was a minor issue we encountered during our stay, i.e., very slippery bath mat, so we informed the owners before we checked out to avoid future accident. For young family like ours, it was ok not to have lift.
