This apartment was a real treat. My family stayed in 3 VRBO apartments during our vacation in Spain, and this was by far the nicest, and it is a good value. The apartment is in a near-perfect location, about a 200 meter walk from the primary Madrid train station. Most tourist destinations we visited were walking distance from this apartment. The apartment appears to have been recently renovated/remodeled, with very nice furnishings, appliances, and professional decor. The beds are very comfortable. The air conditioning kept the entire apartment quite comfortable. The tap water was easily drinkable with no odd taste whatsoever; I could tell no difference from bottled water. The agent who met us at the apartment was on time and very friendly and professional. He went through all of the apartment features with us in detail. I cannot say enough good things about this apartment. The only negative is that it is so nice, you may not want to go out much to enjoy the sights of Madrid! Staying here was the highlight of our vacation.
