The apartment was located in Old Madrid which was ideal for access to the palace and many other attractions. The apartment was very well maintained and decorated, with a great layout, including balconies which helped connect you to the city. The owner, Paco, was extremely helpful and provided a lot of help and advice to us during our stay. He tailored this to our needs, which was quite helpful with our children traveling with us. Living in the apartment was easy, fun, and exciting to all of us. Every night I could cook the kids a nice meal as the kitchen was very functional, and we (the adults) could be more adventuresome and enjoy all sorts of different Spanish foods from the very famous market that is quite close. I would recommend this property to anyone visiting Madrid - it is a beautiful, clean, lovely apartment near many good restaurants as well.
