The Madrid region
Apart from being a fascinating city in its own right, Madrid also makes an excellent base for visiting El Escorial, Avila, Cuenca, Aranjuez or Toledo, to name just a few places of interest, offering a very wide cultural and geographical diversity. Day trips can be easily organized to all these destinations. If you´re interested there are even ski resorts – open during the snow season - within easy reach of Madrid city. Weather is definitely a plus in Madrid - it´s a continental climate - hot and dry in summer, cold and crisp in winter, but the sun is nearly always shining!
Visitors to Madrid can´t go home without visiting the Prado/Thyssen-Bornemisza/Reina Sofia museum triangle, Retiro park, Plaza Mayor, Puerta del Sol and Royal Palace, all of which are within easy reach of the Ferraz apartment. The Templo de Debod area, where the apartment is situated, has also got some lesser known attractions to offer - most people are surprised to come across a 2,200 year old Egyptian temple in the middle of Madrid, but the Templo de Debod has been standing by the city´s Plaza de España since 1968, when it was donated to Spain by the Egyptian government.
Even when you live right by, the Templo de Debod never fails to impress and is the best place in Madrid to watch the sun go down. A perfect walk is down Ferraz, past the Templo de Debod, Plaza España, left at the Royal Palace, towards the Opera House and then along the Calle Arenal into Sol. Alternatively you can just jump on the metro and Sol is just three stations away.
For some spectacular views of Madrid take the cable car (don´t forget your camera) from Paseo Pintor Rosales - 3 minutes from the apartment – and on the way back chill out, away from the tourist traps, on one of the pavement terraces running alongside the beautifully natural Parque del Oeste. Afterwards you can visit the Goya frescos in the nearby San Antonio de la Florida chapel.
Getting back to basics, eating out and shopping for food near the apartment is good and varied, from gourmet to some of the best value for money places in town and everything, including freshly baked bread, is on your doorstep. The nearby Princesa area not only has a wide selection of stores, fashion outlets and so on, it also offers cafés, restaurants, cinemas and clubs with live music. Madrid is the city that never sleeps!

"Great hostess, good location and lovely apartment"

"Excellent accomodations and a wonderful hostess - highly recommend"
We stayed for 3 nights in Mid June 2013. The apartment was clean and very well located. Easy to get to all the sights in Madrid. Mary, our hostess was fabulous! She was very helpful and made our visit to Madrid even more memorable. I would highly recommend this apartment.

"Nice flat in a local neighbourhood"
We stayed here for 5 nights at the end of April. Mary was very communicative before we came, but didn't really give us much information about the neighbourhood, etc (i.e. we asked about good plac… More

"Spacious apartment, good location and friendly helpful host."
Mary was very pleasant and helpful. She provided instructions for us to take the metro from the airport and met us at Arguelles metro station, walking us to the apartment (5-10 minutes away) pointing out the supermarkets etc on the way.
The apartment is on the fourth floor with no escalator, but Mary's partner assisted with getting our luggage up the stairs. It is on a busy one-way road, which we found noisy. Fortunately the bedroom is back from the road a little with no windows and with the bedroom doors closed we enjoyed a good nights sleep.
The apartment is spacious and has a homely feel with the bed providing a comfortable nights sleep. There is plenty of wardrobe space and a good-sized clothes rack for drying clothes. The kitchen has microwave oven, stovetop, dishwasher and washing machine. The bathroom has a shower over bath.
We really appreciated the supplies that Mary had waiting for us including bread, milk, butter, conserve and condiments so we didn't have to rush off to the supermarket to get supplies. The wine and chocolates were also a nice treat.
The apartment was very convenient for our needs. It is about a 15-20 minute walk to the Palacio Real and Plaza Mayor is a bit further on. It is a long but manageable walk to the museum quarter and there is the option of the metro. The Arguelles metro stop is only a 5-10 minute walk from the apartment and the metro is a convenient and easy way to get around Madrid.
The apartment is also only a 20 minute walk from Principe Pio station to catch the bus to Sergovia and a 15 minute walk in the opposite direction to Moncloa bus station to catch the bus to El Escorial. The metro takes you to Atocha Renfe for the train to Toledo. These offer an economical and easy way to visit these sights on your own and at your own pace rather than taking a tour. We don't speak Spanish but doing these trips by public transport was easy. Hence the apartment provided a great base for us to explore Madrid and the sights nearby.
In summary, Mary was very pleasant and easy to deal with. The apartment is well equipped and spacious. Our only reservation was the road noise but with the bedroom doors closed we slept well. The location was also great for our needs and we would certainly stay here again.

"Home from home"
We stayed two weeks at this apartment and were sad to leave at the end because we felt so at home.
The owner, Mary, was extremely helpful and only too pleased to offer assistance or advice if needed. She met us at the station to show us the way and came up with plenty of good suggestions during our stay.
We found the location, 5 minutes walk from Arguelles station, very handy for wherever we wanted to go and was in a good neighbourhood with plenty of good quality bars, cafes and restaurants.
The apartment had a comfortable bedroom, a more than adequate kitchen and a spacious living room with dining table, TV and wifi.
The only thing to be aware of is that it is located on the 4th floor with no lift. We had no problem with this but others may.

"A PERFECT APARTMENT IN AN IDEAL LOCATION"
Thoroughly enjoyed our first trip to Madrid. The apartment is in an ideal location close to the metro but also an easy walk to the Gran Via.From the minute Mary met us at the metro station we felt very much at ease. We appreciated the groceries that were waiting for us at the apartment - bread,jam,butter,chocolates and not forgetting the wine. The accomodation was absolutely spot on in every respect.Madrid is a very compact city and tended not to use the metro too much unless it was just too sore to walk any further !! Would highly recommend a visit to the Bernabeu Stadium for both stadium tour and football match - especially if you are travelling with a football mad teenager as we were. Mary the owner was exceptionally helpful from the outset and we will certainly stay at the Ferraz apartment when we return to Madrid.

"Excellent accommodation in Madrid"
We stayed at the Ferraz apartment from 14/12/2012 to 18/12/2012. Mary, the owner is really wonderful, our dealings with her over the time we booked, leading up to our stay and during our time in Madrid were a pleasure. The apartment is absolutely as described, it is spacious, immaculately clean and very well equipped. There is a separate bedroom with a very comfortable bed, with very good quality bedding, 2 large walk in wardrobe spaces, with shelves, drawers and hanging space. W easily fitted all our bags etc in here. The kitchen is
a good size with a microwave, fridge, cook top, dishwasher and laundry washer. There is plenty of plates, dishes and cooking utensils, etc. Mary left us, wine bread, milk, biscuits ,juice and a dish of pork to cook ( in our correspondence I mentioned my husband likes pork , she remembered and thought he would like this cut, he did!!). The apartment has excellent heating, a fan in the bedroom and an air conditioner. It has a large sitting room with a sofa and a sofa bed. It has two large windows, so is light and airy. The bathroom is off the kitchen not en suite which is a bonus if there is more than 2 people staying. The bathroom has a full size bath with shower over, toilet, bidet and hand basin. It is of a good size.We found the apartment to be excellent value, in a great spot( up market residential area very close to Arguelles metro stop.) The are plenty of places to buy supplies near by. We would certainly recommend this apartment and its lovely owner,who by the way is English, so communication is a breeze !! We had a lovely stay thank you.

"Perfect way to see Madrid, easily and independently"
This place lived up to our expectations and beyond. It's a delightful flat in a charming apartment building, and is very clean, with lots of light and space. It has a full kitchen, washing machine and dish washer. Mary is a warm, lovely host who seems genuinely happy to have you.
The building is not in the thick of Madrid, so it's not rowdy or too noisy, but it is within walking distance to just about everything -- when we stayed, we barely took public transportation anywhere. We felt at home, we had a wonderful host and we saw Madrid, hassle free and comfortably. Highly recommend this for your next stay, as a couple or with a family.
