Perfect hideaway in central Madrid!

My husband and I rented an apartment on the second floor in this same building, also offered by Spain Select. It was decorated similarly to the photos of the third floor apartment shown here: modern, sleek design, some (fake) orchids here and there, flat screen TV, etc. We were thrilled with everything about the experience. We arrived early in the morning, and were able to call Spain Select from our cell phone once we got to Sol (the are where the apartment is) and they sent an agent to check us in almost immediately. It was a quick, easy process (we paid with credit card), and the security deposit was returned without any problems as well.
The apartment itself was spotlessly clean, and in a perfect location right in the middle of Madrid. It was half a block from the Metro, although we only used it to get to/from the airport, as everything else was in walking distance (note, my husband and I enjoy walking, so anything within 2-3 miles is walkable for us): shopping, the museums, restaurants, etc.
It *was* a bit loud at night, but that is to be expected in a city with nightlife like Madrid's. The building was very secure, well-lit, and well-maintained. Oh, and the shower had the most amazing water pressure I can remember experiencing basically ever. : )
If you've not tried staying in an apartment, this is definitely a good place to start: quick, easy, more privacy, much more space to relax and enjoy, quieter, etc. than a hotel.
