I have to start this review with how AMAZING Luke and Poala are! I need to plan ahead with a toddler and Luke was fantastic in allowing me to do that. Then all plans were shot due to a flight that was extremely delayed. The flexibility of Luke and Poala was/is so appreciated. Seeing Poala at the door was a much needed light in an entry that was marred with overly tired children, delays, and a slightly stressed out parent.
The apartment is very spacious and in a great location! We were visiting Madrid for 2 1/2 days with 2 adults, a teen, a tween, and a toddler and we ALL had a blast here!!! We had the opportunity to walk to many locations due to the position of the apartment being between Sol and Opera! Not to mention great activity bc of the same. But in that business, the apartment is very quiet, which we needed as well!
There was plenty of room for the 5 of us and the courtyard was a big hit with my littles! The natural light in the living area was a big hit with me!
Luke and Poala communicated with us perfectly - not too much, not leaving us wondering - and always in a timely manner. On our arrival, Poala gave us a tour of the space, gave us instructions with the keys, told us a few things we could do and let us on our stay. Our departure was just as easy and smooth. This was a true highlight for me as moving around with kids is hard enough. They truly made everything so easy.
This was a great, rock star way and place for us to start our journey in España! Would 100% stay here again, with or without my children, and definitely am suggesting it to my entire network of friends and family!
This property *will not* disappoint!!
This apartment is just "another level up". Perfect for the business guest - really. It has way more space than a hotel room and you can "self-service" your stay without having to depend on reception, breakfast times and the usual restrictions of your hotel. And it's in a prime location in Madrid's historic center. So when you have finished your work at 9pm, you can step out into idyllic tapas areas. The host is also well-heeled biz traveller, so he "gets it" and makes things easy for you. This is a real find and I will definitely look no further on my next trip to Madrid.
Apartment is in the best location anyone should ask, Luke is great host who made my first time in Madrid really fantastic experience
This apartment is literally in the center of Madrid. I knew nothing about Madrid before I booked this apartment and I was lucky to have found this wonderful apartment close to everything we wanted to see!
Although the apartment is in a very busy part of town, the fact that the bedrooms have windows into a courtyard allowed us to sleep at night. The main living area was very spacious and we appreciated the comfortable sofas.
Luke was very responsive to my many questions before our arrival and during our stay.
I don't believe I could have chosen a better spot.
Note to new timers in Madrid - there is more than one train station so if you are planning a day trip on your own, double check the station. Because we start early, we did make it to the correct one on time, but with minutes to spare.
The apartment is centrally location within a few yards of the plaza Del Sol. It is within walking distance from the Palacio Real and many other Madrid sites. It is close to plaza Mayor and many restaurants. There are several Metro stations nearby. The apartment is spacious by Madrid standard. The kitchen is fully equipped with a fridge dishwasher and range. There is also a washing machine which is very useful in long trips. However the lobby looks beat up the elevators are unreliable and the closet doors of both rooms do not slide on their tracks so you have to wrestle to open then to no avail. So if location is your primary concern this is your place.
A true home away from home! A very cosy, safe and quiet flat situated within easy walking distance of top attractions and fantastic food. Perfect place to spend a couple of days or much longer.
We enjoyed our 5 day stay at the apartment. Luke met us & explained things about the flat & also the area for shopping & eating. We were able to walk to everything we wanted to see. Would return here if ever back in Madrid.
