My 2 teenage daughters and I stayed here for a week. Perfect place for us. Flat had all the things we needed, just like at home, and plenty of space for everyone. Loved being on the top floor with a terrace. Central location with a lot of activity in the streets and plenty of shopping. Metro and market just a quick walk away. Staff was present when we arrived and very pleasant. Booked a taxi to and from the airport through the company and it worked perfectly, nice taxi staff too. There is noise on the streets which you can hear from the flat but it didn't bother us. This is a safe neighborhood in the gay district but it is mostly mixed. My girls commented they felt more at ease/safer because it was is gay barrio. Oh, the plants are now dead in the photo, but we weren't there for that, lol.
Great location, shops and restaurants to the left and right outside of the front door. The main major shopping streets, Gran Via and Calle de Fuencarral, are only a couple blocks away. There are grocery stores a few doors down or you can walk a few blocks to the large Mercado de San Anton. The apartment is large, 2 stories, 2 bathrooms (bonus), and has many nice features. The rooftop patio is great for enjoying Spanish wine in the evening, and there is a view of the clock tower lit up at night. Vanrays were great at communicating instructions and staying in touch and the key exchange went well.
We enjoyed our stay. The apartment was centrally located, but off the main drag enough that one escapes the larger crowds of people. There is a grocery store two doors down from the building and many other markets, bakeries and restaurants within a short walk.
The main building entrance has a security door, but even if someone managed to get into the building, he'd still need to get through a second security door on the 4th floor before getting to the apartment door. We also liked that we were given two sets of keys so the four of us could split up without worrying about access to the apartment. The terrace door has its own lock.
The apartment was clean and cheery, and the furnishings were comfortable. The air-conditioning worked well with a unit in each bedroom and one in the living room. The bathrooms were roomier than I expected from the photos. The kitchen is small but serviceable. We used the washer several times and hung the clothes in the sun on the apparatus on the terrace, which worked well.
Cristine was wonderful. She answered any questions I had before arrival. She arranged our ride from the airport (worth the cost after a long flight and the service was prompt and comfortable). We had a light bulb burn out in the bathroom during our stay, it was changed the next business day.
My friends and i stayed in this beautiful apartment.The apartment is just as beautiful as it looks in the picture.The listing was exactly as described and it is in a great location that was out of the main tourist area but walkable to all of the sights. The apartment had everything we needed and we appreciated that a high chair and a small crib were provided. It was clean and well kept. Daniel was a pleasure to deal with. He answered all out questions promptly. My only suggestion would be providing a sheet for the crib. We have told all our friends what a wonderful apartment it was and hope to stay here again in the future. Thanks again Daniel!!!
