Well furnished, clean apartment with all the comforts of home... a block away from Puerta del Sol. Angel is responsive and helpful, we really enjoyed our time in Madrid!
This apartment is beautiful and absolutely spotless!!! It is in a fantastic location - walk out the door one way and be in Plaza Mayor. Walk out the other door and be in Puerta del Sol. Owner was fantastic.
First of all, Angel was a wonderful host. He was very responsive and met us early to let us drop off our bags while the apartment was being cleaned, and left us a bottle of delicious Spanish red wine. While we really didn't use the kitchen while we were there, it was nice to have that option, and although there were only 2 of us, it was lovely to have 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms and sprawl out without having our luggage crammed in one room. There are small terraces of both bedrooms and bathrooms, and I loved opening the doors and windows to let the breeze in the house in the early evenings. (There is air conditioning as well). In addition, the location can not be beat. You are a near a number of metros, multiple main attractions and hundreds of delicious restaurants and stores.
This immaculate apartment is in a great location, walkable to museums, Salamanca and countless restaurants and stores. It was very comfortable for our family of four with two teenagers. Angel, the apartment owner, was punctual and professional. I would highly recommend this unit.
We stayed in this flat with two teenaged daughters and it was great. Beautiful open windows, comfy beds, and so central. Easy walks to the Plaza Mayor and puerto del sol. It also felt very safe with a doorman in the day. The owner was very welcoming.
I was traveling with my adult daughter and we booked this apartment through Airbnb.
First, Angel, the host, was very easy to deal with. He responded quickly to messages. We told him when we would be getting in by train and he just asked that we text him when we were at the train station. We did and took a cab from the train station to the apartment. Cab cost around 10 euros. When we arrived Angel was waiting for us outside. He took us to the apartment and showed us around and how everything worked. One bedroom has a queen size bed (I think)and the other had 2 twin beds. The master bathroom has a tub/shower combination and the second bath has a shower.
There is a clothes washing machine and a drying rack, iron and ironing board.
Angel provided a complimentary bottle of wine for us and the kitchen had plates, etc for 4 people, a dishwasher, stove, cooktop and microwave.
The apartment was very clean and the photos accurately show the condition.
The apartment was located just a block off of Puerta del Sol. This is a major Metro stop with several lines and you can also flag down a cab there.
Angel provided a list of restaurants and tapas bars in the apartment, most within walking distance. The restaurants are popular and you should probably make reservations. We tried to make a reservation at Casa Botin and couldn't but did get one at Casa de Valencia. We did some grocery shopping at El Corte Ingles which is a department store located just off the Puerta del Sol. The grocery store portion is located downstairs so don't be thrown off by the look of the place.
This was our first time renting an apartment and we were very happy with the apartment and Angel.
This apartment exceeded our expectations. It was a home away from home. Spotlessly clean. Excellent location, with all attractions easily within walking or metro access. A welcoming bottle of wine and a very comfortable place to be after you have walked Madrid. This is the very first review I have ever written and would recommend it highly.
