We loved our stay at this apartment. It was clean, spacious, the bathrooms and appliances were modern but it still had a historical flavor with its walk-out balconies overlooking the narrow neighborhood streets. Our favorite part of the trip was relaxing at the end of the day and sitting out on the balcony just absorbing the vibe of life in Madrid. We concur with the other reviewers that the location of this apartment is amazing! You are in the heart of Madrid here; close to everything we wanted to do and a very short walk to the metro when we needed to get to other parts of the city. We also agree with reviewers who advise you to bring ear plugs for the front bedroom if you want to sleep before 2am. We had our teenage daughter in the front room and she stays up to all hours anyways so it worked for us. We heard no street noise at all in the back bedroom plus the electric fans that are available in all the rooms washed out any noise there might have been from outside. Communication with Santiago was fantastic. He was very helpful with advice on which train station to use among other things and he set up a car to pick us up at the airport and drive us straight to the apartment which helped tremendously as we tried to get our bearings in Spain. We will definitely return to this location on our next trip to Madrid.
The apartment is in a quiet, eclectic neighborhood outside of the bustling city center. There a little groceries and bars/cafeterias nearby. The metro is a few short blocks away. Apartment is exactly as pictured, very clean, comfortable, and well-kept. The owner was excellent about keeping in touch and making sure my every need was met.
