My husband and I spent 6 nights in this beautifully appointed, spotlessly clean apartment and wished we could have stayed longer. The apartment had everything we could need and more! Maria was so pleasant to work with in setting up the arrangements. She truly treated us like welcome family friends. Our queen-sized bed was very comfortable. We were able to wash and dry a load of laundry in the fully equipped kitchen. The views from the windows were gorgeous. Sunrise and sunset were so beautiful. It was a short walk to the metro when we wanted to go to the museums, but mostly we walked. It is very close to Plaza de España, Temple de Debod, the Palacio Real, Almudena Cathedral, Plaza Major, Puerta del Sol, and Mercado San Miguel (Tapas!!). There is a huge department store, El Corte Inglés, just up the street where you can buy groceries, clothing, camera supplies, souvenirs for friends and family, and just about anything else. We always felt safe in the neighborhood and appreciated that there was always a concierge in the lobby to greet us and help us if needed. If we ever return to Madrid, we would plan our time there around when Maria has a room for us!
