Comfortable 2 bed 2 bath apartment. Walking distance to local supermarket, metro and some sites in the area. Easy handover of keys and explanation of location. Air conditioner in living room. Very clean and well equipped.
As we got a taxi from the airport (30€ max) finding the street was no problem.I had told Begona we would be early but we were even earlier and I texted her to let her know. She replied Promptly and came along in minutes. The apartment is on the 4th floor but thankfully has a lift. The apartment has everything required, Kitchen, Living Room, 2 Small but adequate bedrooms. Begona explained to us the keys involved in getting in and out and the waste and recycling regime. The washing machine was very handy as we each had only carry on for the 4 days and we all needed to get stuff freshened up. The only gripe I have is that there was no washing detergent and we had to buy a large box of it which we left for the next tenants.Perhaps it was there in the shared hall but we didn't want to rummage.The location is excellent with a supermarket across the road, a very decent veggie restaurant, an ok oriental buffet and a chinese restaurant with a nice menu on the corner. Leaving the Apartment and going either way takes you into the Grand Streets and squares of the city, with great Shopping, eateries and places to see. We'd really love to stay there again but perhaps not in the height of the summer as temperatures reached 43 degrees. Can't fault the location though 10/10
Small but clean, well- kept, and efficient apartment in well maintained and charming apartment building built in the 1800's. Central to all tourist attractions and public transportation in the old part of Madrid. Within easy walking distance to palace, Puerto del Sol, Plaza Mayor, restaurants, and Opera house. Negatives- one of the bedrooms was very small, poor air conditioning (one unit for whole apartment was not strong), beds uncomfortably hard, and no electrical adaptor provided by owner- which led us to go to store soon after arrival from long flight. Apartment was not a place to hang out in for too many hours due to size- but so much to see in the area. Location is the best!! It out-weighed the negatives. Owner very nice and helpful.
metro close and apartment near the palace and walking distance to many attractions. Begona quickly responded to question and very friendly. back rooms a little warm due to A/C only in front living area. Otherwise, wonderful apartment.
We stayed here for 4 nights with our two teenagers. The location is amazing - walk for 1 minute and you are in the Plaza de España and the Calle Arenal. You can walk to everything from here! We walked to the Prado, Reina Sofia, Gran Via, Plaza Mayor. There are also two metro stops nearby. We made an easy journey via metro to the train station, the soccer stadium, and the Retiro Park. We also just loved waking the neighborhood. The apartment was quiet for sleeping and many conveniences nearby - a grocery store with everything we needed across the street and a laundromat (for a dryer - apartment has a washer) just next door. The apartment itself was perfect for the 4 of us with comfortable beds, two full bathrooms, and lots of storage for our clothes and toiletries. Begoña is a lovely host who guided us to nearby restaurants and supermarkets. A perfect stay!
Great location. Quiet neighborhood yet a short walking distance to where the action is. The condo is artistically decorated and the owner is very gracious. It also had all the essential amenities . I definitely would stay here again and recommend it to friends with their family. In spite of the searing 40 degree heat we remained comfortable .
Location was great and the apartment was comfortable. Lift was a plus. Host was very helpful. Beautiful city. Recommend Flamenco show.
