Nice apartment in the very center of Madrid. Easy check-in process - Ana was very friendly and allowed us late check-out as well. The place is clean, stylish, well equipped and quiet (with closed windows) being at the top floor in one of the busiest squares of Madrid. The terrace overlooking the rooftops around was the highlight of the apartment. We had a wonderful time here.
This apartment could not be more centrally located, just a few steps from Puerta del Sol. It is also about an 10 minute walk to the Plaza Mayor, and a 20 minute walk to either the Palacio Real to the west, or the Prado to the east.
The apartment was clean, well-stocked, and the terrace was a great bonus. Ana, the caretaker, is awesome, and answered all of our questions.
In all, we enjoyed the apartment and had a great time.
great terrace and apartment near Puerto del Sol
This was a great apartment, very clean and a great terrace. Right near Puerto del Sol and close to many things. It was on the 5th floor and very quiet to sleep. all of the bedrooms had AC which was much needed. It was a little hard to find on the street and meet with the person, but she was very nice even though communication was tough. I would highly recommend this apartment to anyone.
Perfect location and incredibly well equipped apartment.
The location of this “Sol” apartment is terrific- being only a half block from Puerta del Sol. The location could not be better, for public transit or taxis, or walking (which we mostly did). The Puerta del Sol area is extremely lively at night and you are so close that you stop by every night (yet the noise does not disturb the apartment). There are many good restaurants within a few blocks. It is very feasible to walk east to the three major art museums or walk west to attractions such as Plaza Mayor and the Royal Palace area.
The apartment itself is spacious with two long hallways providing good separation between rooms. All rooms were very clean. The furnishings are very complete and comfortable-- in both the common areas and the bedrooms. There are many dishes and every kind of kitchen equipment (e.g., Nespresso machine) -- including condiments, washing up supplies, toilet paper (five rolls!), etc. It is a model of what you hope a rental apartment would provide, but often does not. The apartment is very suitable for someone with mobility issues, having no steps at either the building level or in the apartment (except for the step up to the patio). There are two elevators which seem very reliable.
In other words, the description and photos are very representative of the apartment- except that in reality it is better than the photos. Whatever you think you might want it has. The only missing element was a binder with instructions about the appliances and information about the neighborhood. For instance, it was only on the last day that we discovered the extensive food floor of El Cortes Ingles and the Mercado de San Miguel, just a few blocks away. Ana, the concierge, may have told us about them when we arrived but due to our lack of Spanish, we were only able to understand a little of what she said (she speaks no English). We had no personal contact with anyone other than Ana but Rufino was very prompt in responding to our e-mails before arrival.
If/when we return to Madrid, there is no doubt that we would want to stay here again
Overlooking Central Madrid
Wonderful two bedroom apartment with all the luxuries. The concierge (Ana) was very accommodating and the views of the plaza and the streets of Madrid are wonderful. Everything is in walking distance and if you want a taxi they are just outside your door. We truly enjoyed our rental to the max.
Gracias por su visita
Great place in Madrid city center
Rufino's apartment is right in Madrid's city center which is a fantastic location for seeing everything Madrid has to offer. We pretty much walked or took a short Metro ride to everything we did. The apartment was very clean and the amenities were exactly as advertised. There were also many additional extras that made the stay even more enjoyable. The check-in and check-out process was very smooth and the communication between Rufino (manager) and Ana (onsite) was excellent. The place has a rooftop area which was great for spending time outside at night and catching the sunset or nighttime views. I would highly recommend Rufino's place for anyone looking to be centrally located in Madrid and wanting a very comfortable place to stay.
Thanks Steve, I'm glad you enjoyed the stay.
