Pedro's little apartment was perfect for our five days in Madrid. It is literally 1/2 block from Plaza del Sol, the center of Madrid. The apartment is furnished with all the comforts of home, and the bed more comfortable than mine at home! Most importantly, it was quiet, in spite of throngs of people on the street below, all hours of the day and night. The patio was very spacious, and a pleasant place to return to after a long day of sightseeing. A couple of negatives is that sometimes the odor of grease from the restaurants below and cigarette smells from elsewhere in the building were not too pleasant. If being in the middle of all the action is what you like, this is the place for you.
