“Perfect Madrid Digs”

First time in Madrid, we arrived barely prepared, i.e., not speaking a word of Spanish, no phrase-book in out pockets and no maps of the city. All we could do was follow Mary's (our host) easy-peasy instructions, which brought us straight to her, waiting patiently at the Metro gates. Mary then warmly welcomed us into the neighbourhood as well as the apartment itself, and helped us break our 3-night's stay into bitesize chunks, so we were able to enjoy the best of Madrid without either cramming too much in, or missing out on the city essentials. Having lived there for almost 40 years, Mary is a true Madrileña, and a valuable source of information, and we are very grateful for all the help, kindness and generosity she had showed us.

As for the apartment, it was very clean and comfortable, with everything you'd need from a city bolthole, and more. The location is great: one day we walked down to The Palacio Real de Madrid, El Rastro Sunday market, and all the way down to Reina Sofia, Prado and Parque del Retiro, then took the Metro back home. The next day, we strolled off in the other direction, through Malasaña and Chueca neighbourhoods, then took a train to the river and walked home from there.

An alltogether great experience, do try it for yourself.

Mary Margaret our hostess was really helpful. She sent us directions on the best way to get to the apartment and picked us up from the metro station. She showed us around the apartment, explained where everything was and really made us feel welcome. She also included a welcome pack which was great .... it even had some lovely chocolates in it.

We used a mixture of walking and the metro to see the sights. The metro station is less than 5 mins walk from the apartment ... so handy. There is also a lovely walk from the apartment to the Royal Palace via the local park and the Temple of Debod.

Mary Margaret gave us some ideas and directions on what to include in our sightseeing tour which we hadn't considered ....The Sorolla Museum and El Escorial which are both worth visiting.

On our final day our train didn't leave till late evening. Mary Margaret offered us the opportunity to either leave our cases with her or if there was no booking after us to let us use the apartment till we needed to leave so we didn't have to take our luggage sightseeing with us.

All in all we had a wonderful stay and I would recommend Mary Margaret's apartment

I knew this would be an excellent choice from the first enquiry response I had from the owner, Mary. It was warm and helpful, unlike others who seemed only interested in how much more they could charge for various items. Our flight arrived quite late but not only did Mary not charge us a late check in fee, she came to meet us at the Metro station to escort us back to the apartment. Once there, she had bought us various provisions including milk, butter, bread and even chocolates to make us feel really welcome. The apartment itself is clean and tidy but also has character with the odd assortment of books and CDs. There is an excellent ipod docking station along with a CD player and TV. The double was very comfy and and there are plenty of other useful items including a hair dryer, good bath shower, sewing equipment and even a selection of condiments. The deposit was £150 which we got back with no problem and we even gave it in sterling so we didn't lose out in exchanging. For us, the location was perfect. Although it is about 10 minutes walk from the main centre, it is peaceful so you can get sleep, but there are many bars, cafes and restaurants nearby, mainly frequented by locals. One in particular, Fogon & Candela on the corner is well worth a visit for their reasonable prices, friendly atmosphere and excellent food. There is a Dia supermarket just round the corner on Calle Quintana and the park is minutes down the road. Highly recommended with a personal touch.

“excellent, clean, characterful, well furnished, centrally located apartment”
Reviewed 9 October 2014 for a stay in October 2014

Both of us loved this apartment in terms of its location within a residential area located just on the edge of the city centre. The apartment had character, was homely, easy to look after and had balconies overlooking a beautiful street with lots of restaurants. It was a short walk to the Royal Palace, Egyptian monument, Opera, Gran Via, and a beautiful park overlooking city which had a cable car run for striking trip to view the city. I would have no hesitation in recommending this apartment as a place to stay.

“Wonderful apartment and owner !”
Reviewed 23 September 2014 for a stay in September 2014

This apartment is just as described. Very well located for walking to major sites but too close too crowded, noisy areas. Close and easy access to metro and bus if needed. Mary was exceptionally easy to work with and was very helpful before and during our stay. Everything we needed was at hand and the apartment has been very well cared for and very clean. I would definitely recommend and would gladly stay here again if we return to Madrid !
