Excellent For Travellers From The US

This apartment was perfect for our group of 6 who had never travelled to Spain before. Way more beautiful than pictures show. Owner was absolutely wonderful, attentive, respectful, and helpful.
The apartment was clean and spacious with modern furniture (from Ikea) and closets in all three bedrooms. Beds were very comfortable (2 twins in 2 rooms and 1 queen in 3rd bedroom). Super comfortable sofas in living room recline and can double as extra sleeping accommodations if necessary. Small washer located in kitchen (no dryer, drying rack provided) - it's best to ask owner how to operate; not like US washer. Two large full baths with standing showers, one tiny half bath off of kitchen.
Kitchen is stocked with fridge, stove, microwave, & cooking utensils. (USA tip, fridge is smaller than in the US & food doesn't have all the preservatives we're used to so grocery shop on a smaller scale.) Also, bring reusable shopping bags or be prepared to purchase them as supermarkets do not provide free shopping bags for groceries.
Metro stop is right in front of the apartment building (however, when it closes after hours, the next closest stop is only about 2 blocks away). Short walking distance to main shopping district, supermarket, and restaurants. Street is very noisy but windows block out all of the sound day and night. No screens on large, beautiful windows.
Elevator is tiny (maybe 2 people at one time) so apartment is really a 4th floor walk up. Building is older but charming. Entrance remains locked at all times; only access is by residents with keys.
We will definitely return and use this apartment each time as it made for an overall phenomenal experience!
