Our trip started in Barcelona and we stayed in a hotel so wanted this next stay in Madrid to be more relaxed and informal. Paola greeted us with a warm welcome and spoke excellent English. She gave us some recommendations on where to eat and sites to see which turned out to be very helpful. The B&B is conveniently located and since my wife and I enjoy walking we just headed out each day sight seeing and getting around Madrid. The rooms were small but newly remodeled. After our stay in Barcelona, we had some laundry to take care of a place is conveniently located just down the street. The only negative feedback was being subjected to a noisy couple next door who lacked some common sense during a lovemaking session. Fortunately it was only night out of 3 and certainly not anything Paola could predict or control. The breakfast time at a B&B is normally a great opportunity to learn more from other travelers and this was no exception. A family staying at Artistic was from Seattle and we crossed multiple times while sightseeing. Nice people and many stories to share. All in all a great place to stay.
