This duplex is a great apartment, located in the center just a ten minute walk from Puerto del Sol as well as the Reina Sofia (I really wanted to see Picasso's Guernica). There are many marts and restaurants nearby, and the apartment itself is well maintained and extremely spacious. Finally, the host/manager, Javier is amazing. While his English vocabulary is limited, basic conversation is fine, and he is beyond helpful. On one of our nights, at around 10 PM, there was an issue with the water supply - nothing coming out from the taps. I messaged him, and not only did he respond instantly, he came over within half an hour to check out the issue. Turns out it was a fault in the next building and the waterworks crew (who had arrived by then) had to shut off water for the block. Javier was not only extremely helpful but went above and beyond as far as service is concerned. I definitely recommend this place, especially for a group of 4-6 people (we were a group of 3 and each had a room to ourself).
We are a family of four and booked the apartment for a 3 night stay in January. We were not disappointed !
It had everything you need if you want to self-cater and all the utensils and pans were spotless and of good quality .It's on the first and second floors and the balconies are all substantial. Access is via front door with a lockable security gate on the landing before the apartment.
Javier was very pleasant and answered all our emails prior to our arrival very quickly. His English is much better than my Spanish ! He was very welcoming and explained all about the apartment , where the nearest supermarket was situated and lots more. The décor is to a high standard and is as shown in the photos . The heating works perfectly and the apartment was lovely and warm when we arrived. The weather was cold but sunny and we thoroughly enjoyed our long weekend. We would not hesitate to book again. Many thanks Javier .
I must start with expressing our sincere thanks to Javier for all his hospitality and great communication prior and during the stay. He welcomed us on our arrival and helped us to move our luggage into the apartment. His apartment is very well maintained and exactly as in pictures. It is very spacious and was big enough for us family of 11. He fully stocked the kitchen and it was great help not to run for shopping straightaway. Quality of furniture, infrastructure, facilities is superb. Apartment has secure access via three locks and Javier has all the city visit information inside the house. Location of apartment is next to none. It is just 400 meters from Museum De Prado (major museum and central point for hop on bus and same distance from Plaza Sol (city central square and shopping area). I would highly recommend this apartment to any one travelling to Madrid.
Just returned from a 4 night stay in Madrid at Casa Moratin. The apartment is really clean, well equipped and beautifully furnished for a holiday rental. Our group of ladies were impressed with the kitchen, lounge, bedrooms etc, etc. The owner Javier was so polite and helpful. He kindly placed items in both the fridge and the cupboards for us..... thank you, they were greatly appreciated. Although you don't have to walk far to find a drink and food. Do not hesitate to rent this beautiful tradition apartment, you will not be disappointed! Thank you very much Javier.
This very comfortable property is so conveniently located (as described in the listing and others' reviews) it is hard to imagine staying anywhere else; I would stay again if I am fortunate enough to return to Madrid. We walked everywhere (except to the Chamartin Station for the train to Segovia) the entire week.
Six of us, two generations of adults, stayed comfortably for a week. The owner, Javier, was a gracious host--meeting us on arrival to orient us to the property and neighborhood, giving us a map with restaurants and stores identified. He also had stocked some basic provisions (wine, beer, coffee, bread).
Booked this place for my 5 friends and I and we were all very impressed with it. The place itself is very spacious, impeccably clean and has everything you would ever need. This includes a full washing machine and dryer which I haven’t had in other rentals.
Its located in a quiet street quite centrally in Madrid convenient to many restaurants, bars and shops.
The owner Javier was very pleasant and accomodating, we had no issues staying there but I think if anything did crop up he would have sorted it without an issue.
All in it was a great place and a reasonable price given the sheer size and location.
This two-floor apartment is located on a quite street in an area with many restaurants, tapas bars, and small shops. It's walking distance to all the major Plazas and museums as well as the Retiro park. As a family of six persons we enjoyed our stay a lot. This fully equiped house offered a place to relax between sight-seeing, and we could easily have fitted more people in. The owner Javier is very helpful.
