4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 10, 2012

Last October, our family of 6 with grown up kids went to a 12 day vacation in Europe and one of the places visited was Madrid. For a first timer in this beautiful Spanish city, comfort and accessibility to different tourist destinations is very important plus value for the money. Palafox Central Suite just fitted the requirements. We love the spacious condo plus the homey feeling with its amenities that were very useful to us, like washing machine and cooking range. We got the 3 bedroom/2 toilet and bath type of apartment so everybody was happy.
Well, the only downside was the hot water for bath. When used up, you have to wait 30 mins. for the tanks to fill up. Okay, if not in a hurry.

Room Tip: Just inform the hotel your requirements so they could prepare the place

I stayed here with 2 other friends - we were in a clean spacious 2 bedroom apartment which could actually fit 6 people comfortably - hence we each had the luxury of our own rooms (I had the living room sofabed!). The location is great - easily walkable to all the touristy sights in Madrid (if you don't want to walk, the metro Bilbao is just around the corner or taxis are cheap too if you are just returning from the town center).

The guy who checked us in did a great job in pointing out all the spots to visit in Madrid as well as recommendations on where to eat (he evidently knew the great places because when we went to those places, they seemed very popular with the locals compared to other restaurants along the same road!).

All in all, a great place to stay while you are in Madrid!

It's a good place to stay when visiting the city! Clean, spacious and with all necessary things to stay for a long term. Only, be carrefully when booking online...they charge 20/30€ for cleaning that sometimes is not clearly obvious in the beggining.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 3, 2012

I came with a group of friends, we stayed in a 2 bedroom apartment which sleeps 6, however they kindly accomodated us with an extra bed which was put into one of the bedrooms which were quite small as it was. we were greeted by one of the ladies who owned the place and she was very friendly and showed us a map and pointed out a few of ''her'' favourite places. There were 7 of us and after one person had a shower the water went cold, although you'd think the area was quiet there was a lot of noise at random times! But I have to say the beds were comfortable. There were only 3 mirrors in the apartment so for us girls getting ready was a bit of annoying thing (2 mirrors were in bathrooms). An iron was provided which was good and the apartment was spotless...
A bit of a mixed review but I wanted to show the positives as well as the negatives so you get an overall picture :)

I would have to admit that this wasn't our first choice to stay but came across this hotel due to a mishap with another hotel.

* Nicely decorted apartments
* Excellent choice if you're travelling in a group
* Good neighbourhood
* Lots of bars and restaurants around the corner
* Very close to Bilbao metro
* Value for money
* Comfortable option if you plan on staying for more than 2 days

The rooms are a little small to accomodate a lot of luggage, but the apartment in general is big enough.

We booked this aparment as we didn't want to stay at the hotel we had originally booked. To avoid wasting any time, we booked the first hotel that could accomodate a group of 5 people and were very pleasantly surprised by the result.

Room Tip: Good option if you're travelling in a group.

These apartments are very close to Bilbao Metro and within walking distance of all the main tourist attractions including the nightlife of Chueca. The beds were comfortable and the black out blinds were welcomed. The apartments were clean and my group of friends were very happy with these apartments. Safe area, no noise and two brilliant tapas bars very close by. We arrived in Madrid at midnight and the manager was already there and waiting when we arrived - no issue at all as they ask for your flight arrival details etc upon booking with them.

The apartments dont have a view but we never spent much time inside anyway. You will also have to pay cash upfront unless you choose to pay via your credit card at an earlier. No major - if you read the small print it says it in there.

There is a mini mart not far away.

Would stay here again - no complaints.

Room Tip: You are completley left alone once the cash/key transaction takes place (in our case this was perfec...
