I stayed here for three weeks in October. The apartment was very comfortable and had everything I needed. You really cannot beat the location. It is within walking distance to all the major attractions of Madrid, every kind of shopping, and many, many restaurants. The metro and train are a very short walk away. What would be a downside for some is the noise level. The apartment is in a very active area of Madrid and there is loud noise all night long. My only complaint would be that they should replace the lock on the door at street level; it was difficult to open every time.
This is a spacious renovated two bedroom unit that we found very comfortable for the two of us as we used the second bedroom as our storage and change room. It is located within 100 metres of Puerta del Sol which is the social heart of central Madrid. This does have a downside as the locals like to party all night. Nevertheless double glazed windows and ear plugs minimise any slight inconvenience. The furnishings are comfortable and the rooms have very high ceilings which add to the charm. We walked to most of the attractions and where further afield was required, the metro entrance was just 100 metres away. A good find.
Perfect location, which is what you’re paying for. A short walk to the Sol or Gran Via metro lines and pretty much anything in the city. The noise was as loud as expected for the heart of the city and was pretty loud unitl 6am. There is a police station next door so we never felt unsafe. Just a heads up- there is no clothes dryer. We did several loads of wash while we were there and had to hang dry everything all around the apartment. But it was more than what we needed for our stay. El Corte Ingles had a wonderful grocery selection just a block away.
Apartment is located in a busy, noisy, commercial pedestrian area in the heart of Madrid.
It's a basic very small apartment. Ignore the hype re boutique, etc.,a few art books on the table do not make a designer apartment.
We had some equipment issues with the owner (who we never sighted) and these were ironed out after 2/3 days.
A/c in the living and sleeping areas was greatly appreciated during the 35+ days we experienced.
We spent a wonderful week in Madrid in April 2017. Our "Holiday Home" Sol Picasso was just perfect. The location was in the heart of the city. Just in the middle of everything in a beautiful old house. In spite of lively environment I and my husband slept very well.
The apartment was very cosy and really beutifully furnished. It was well-equipped and very tidy. We really enjoyed staying there and we´ll surely recommend this apartment to our friends.
A minute's walk from Puerte Sol in a pedestrian street, this place couldn't have been more convenient. Nice large living room, tastefully decorated, plus bedroom, kitchenette and small bathroom. Walking distance to most of Madrid's important monuments. Perfect for our week's stay.
My husband, son and I stayed at the Sol Picasso apartment for three
days. We loved the central location and the helpful welcome at
check-in. Also, the beds were very comfortable. It was nice to get a
good night's sleep before a long flight back home. Ear plugs are
provided for the street noise.
