We loved our time in this roof top apartment. The views were spectacular. The location was very good, as easy access to Prado & other museums in one direction, and the palace in the other. Would be lovely to return. The stairs were a challenge for old knees but I knew that so just took things slowly. more

Lavapies has a great multi-cultural/ethnic vibe, while Anton Martin... more

Management response:

Thank you for your feedback and business. My apologies for all disappointment. Minor maintenance will be attended to. Regarding the missing/broken blinds, they were taken by the windstorm just before check-in and I was unaware of the damage. Had I known earlier I would have replaced/repaired them before the end of the stay. Best regards and happy travels! more
