A group of seven of us stayed in Ricardo's apartment for 2 nights for my sister's hen weekend and we couldn't have had a better time. The apartment is exactly as pictured, very close to the Retiro and all the other major attractions. We didn't have to use the Metro once. The taxi from the airport cost 30 euro so not bad when there are many of you.
Upon our arrival, Ricardo greeted us and sat with us, helping make a plan for our stay in Madrid. He kindly booked restaurants for us as well as our taxis back to the airport. His recommendations were fantastic and being foodies, we had a great time sampling Madrid's cuisine. Bocaito was our favourite recommendation for tapas, and has been visited by many celebrities in it's time.
The apartment was well cleaned, and stocked with all the amenities one would need whilst staying there. The fireplace was a lovely touch. I would definitely recommend this apartment to anyone staying in Madrid, and all 7 of us concurred that we would check the apartment was free before booking flights to Madrid in the future.
Thank you Ricardo.
