We booked to stay in Elisa's lovely apartment for 7 nights for our first ever trip to Madrid. The apartment is in a fantastic condition and has everything you could need whilst maintaining a traditional Spanish charm. The location was perfect, there's so much to see and do in Madrid and we felt as though we were on the doorstep to everything, the name of the apartment is true, it is only a minute off of Gran Via meaning that we were only a short walk away from lots of attractions including: Puerta de Sol, Palacio de Cibeles, Circulo de las Bellas Artes, Museo de la Historia de Madrid. All other main attractions are a maximum 20 minute walk away. Elisa was the perfect host and made sure that we felt at home and had everything we needed along with giving us advice on places to go, how to get to and from the airport etc. We had an amazing time in Madrid and are so glad we chose to stay here, we can't imagine it being the same had we stayed elsewhere. Highly recommended!
Stayed here for a couple of days in Feb. Great location, just off Gran Via & near all the bars/restaurants in Chuecca & Malasana . Traditional Spanish apartment, which is just what we were looking for. Two lovely shuttered windows, with Juliette balconies that kept most of the city noise out. Directly opposite Convent anyway! Clean & comfy. One double bedroom & a double sofa bed. Compact, basic bathroom and quirky kitchen (great design -in a wardrobe!) but apartment had everything that you needed for a short stay, including hairdryer. Great that happy for you to leave luggage in secure, locked & private hallway if you had a late flight. More or less behind Primark on Gran Via, therefore few minutes to Sol & short walk to Atocha train/bus station. Madrid is quite a compact city, with beautiful sights & was lovely to return back to the apartment after a long day out. Highly recommend (much prefer it to bland, overpriced hotels)
You could not get a better location to tour the Madrid sites. Yards from a Metro station, supermarket, bars, restaurants and main shopping street. The apartment has everything you need. The bed is comfortable, kitchen facilities are enough to do the basics. It is an authentic Madrid apartment and very spacious for the money. Quiet at night too.Shower room is merely functional, but overlook that for all the other positives. Elisa is a helpful host, and keeps the apartment clean. I would have liked a DVD player.
My wife and I had the pleasure of staying here for 4 nights recently. The apartment had everything we wanted. Lovely main lounge quirkily decorated with musical instruments from around the world and some very interesting paintings. Two Juliet balconies and 2 comfortable sofas. Small kitchen had all we needed. Comfortable bed, small but adequate shower. The flat had the perfect location with loads on bars and restaurants right on the doorstep. We wouldn't stay anywhere else in Madrid now and look forward to our next visit.
This is a lovely, bright apartment close to many attractions. There was good nearby restaurants as well as food shopping. Two gals travelling in Spain, we were made to feel very safe and comfortable.
And we have to Thank Eliza for her grand efforts to get some items my friend had left behind back to her in Canada. Much appreciated!
Situated in the heart of Madrid within walking distance of each of the main three areas, Old Madrid, Bourbon Madrid and the area around La Castellana, 50 m from the metro. Taxi rank at the end of the road 40m. Calm and sophisticated by day, party central by night, but totally soundproof.
A beautiful historic apartment with eclectic decor and 2 magnificent, shuttered, floor to ceiling double glass doors with juliiet balconies, where you can watch daily life in Madrid pass 2 floors below ( there is a modern lift).
Basic shower room and kitchenette but for a short stay more than adequate. The kindest host I have ever had the pleasure of staying with, thank you so much Elisa. Last but not least the Yamaha upright piano... take a concert pianist with you like I did and relax to the strains of Beethoven or Debussy, the acoustics are tremendous.
I will definitely stay here again during my life.
Elisa was really helpful, lots of recommendations and help. Situated very close Gran Via within easy walking distance of everywhere we wanted to go. Spacious comfortable apartment to relax in. Central but quiet.
