The apartment offered every convenience and comfort! With Ernesto’s guidance we felt at home immediately and ithe apartment’s close proximity to all the major museums, restaurants, and shops made for a perfect introduction to Madrid. When we left, we were able to walk & roll our suitcase to the Atocha station in 5 minutes!
First, the apartment is very comfortable and quiet. It is located at the juncture of three small streets near the Atocha Train Station and minutes from the Reina Christina Museum. The Prado and the Thuyssen are a little further but easy walking distance. There is a convenient supermarket nearby and the bus #27 runs right in front of the apartment. Take it for a ride to visit Madrid.
The bed was comfortable, the WIFI worked, no noise from the neighbors, there is plenty of hot water, and there is a washing machine! Note that their economy cycle takes about two and a half hours. So don't panic if it keeps running. It is trying to get every ounce of dirt out of your clothes! There is a clothes line off the bathroom window and the laundry was always bone dry the next day.
You will enjoy this stay, and be amazed at how close you are to everything you want to see. ENJOY!!!!
This is a nice tidy apartment. The shower is very small. Would not recommend for larger folks. WiFi never connected to Internet. Contacted owner but never had a response to correct problem.
The location of this apartment gives possibility to be near to the world's greatest
art objects - museums of Prado and Tissen- Bornemisza, Queen's Sofia art-gallery, as well as to the Parque de Retiro and the Botanic Garden. The Atocha central railway station, glamorous Grand Via, majestic Plaza Mayor, San Miguel market - just a step away and this step is very pleasant.
The apartment itself is on 4-th floor of the old-fashioned block of flats with the nice-looking, silent-working lift. The windows on one side looked on the roofs and there's the typical small spanish-style street on the other.
Ernesto appeared to be a benevolent and eager host - he did all to make us feel in right place after a rather long jorney.
The flat was spacey enough, but only for short stay if you've got the idea of traveling with the pet.
Wishes - 1. the Internet has to be a little bit faster especially in evening hours.
2.Linens for living-room sofa must be added .
