Very clean. Nice pedestrian street with lots of tapas bars just a half block away. 5 minute walk to the subway. Ten minute walk to the Rambla and the Bari Gotic. Grocery store a half block away. Great as a base for exploring Barcelona.
This small apartment in Madrid was fabulous! I stayed here for three nights with my mom and sister. The apartment was well appointed with everything you could need. One bedroom had two twin beds with an en-suite bathroom and the other bedroom had a queen size bed. There was another bathroom in the hall. The kitchen, though small, was perfect and they even had coffee for us to make! This was perfect for me, as I cannot get going in the morning with out a cup!
The apartment is also close to everything and in a very safe part of town. (Although, to be honest, we were out until well past midnight all three nights in the city and not once did we feel unsafe or wary. I think Madrid is probably a very safe city). The Prado is a 5 minute walk, Buen Retiro Park is 8 minutes and the Plazy Mayor is about 12 minutes. We walked everywhere from the apartment and the most we walked was probably 25 minutes to get to the Palacio Real.
Carmen, the owner, was super helpful and charming. She met us at the apartment to let us in and walked us through everything. She also gave us a city map and pointed out best routes to get places and offered a few suggestions for food! Also, I left a few small items in the apartment when we left and called her once I realized. She grabbed my items and mailed them to me quickly. I am so grateful to her!
There are a ton of cafes, restaurants, bars and markets right around the apartment. We ate in the plaza directly down from the apartment and enjoyed the night performances and music. Our last night we ate at Lamucca, which you can see from the apartments balcony. It was delicious and it's location is superb if you need something extremely close. You will not regret staying at this wonderful apartment on your next visit to Madrid.
