Anna y Arlene, two Latin American travellers have discovered the GowithOh experience in one of our Madrid apartments! Here they tell all about their time there on their blog ”Viaje con Escalas”.
For them their experience in the apartment felt like “they were at home with a kitchen and privacy and a great atmosphere, with an ideal location.”

Anna Varela began to travel on a simple vacation. Over time, she soon became addicted to travelling and decided to pursue it professionally. She’s now a travel journalist who hopes to discover new places, vies and tastes that make you want to go and visit as well!

Anna and Arlene in her apartment in Madrid

“Our GowithOh apartment in Madrid was like our home from home and it exceeded all our expectations because it had all the usual comforts and more. In fact it was better than being at home, as even in the middle of winter, the flat let in plenty of light and it remained warm and cosy, without the need for heating.”

In our living room

This apartment is located in the heart of Madrid, near of the Plaza Mayor and its fascinating and lively surrounding areas.

“It was very well located in the central Barrio de las Letras area and everything was nearby so we had plenty of choice from traditional Spanish tiled taverns to the modern and minimalist bars. One thing that caught our attention along the streets of Las Huertas, where our flat was located, were the poems and phrases of famous international writers that were inscribed into the ground. Every step was like walking through the pages of a book.”

We are happy that Anna and Arlene had a nice time in Madrid!
