Attic Apartment in the heart of Madrid
Submitted: April 4, 2011
Stayed: March 2011
Our apartment was centrally located, just steps from Plaza Sol, and easy walking to Metro, Plaza Mayor, Prado, many tapas bars, El Corte Ingles, etc. Remarkably, though it was very quiet at night. This would be directly related to it's attic status - skylights instead of windows on the street. The apartment was sparkling clean, with generous linens, towels, dishware and glassware. We cooked and entertained with ease and comfort. Everything worked: the coffee pot, the dishwasher, the laundry, the shower and toilets - this has not always been the case with accommodations in Spain! This apartment is best for short people - part of the charm is the extreme roof angles, which lead to bending over to access the storage shelves, refrigerator, closet, and spare bedroom shower. Remember to keep your head down. Printed instructions provide clues to the range, oven, washing machine - we figured it out. A unique, convenient, and modern casa in a fabulous location.
