2 bedroom apartment fully equipped in the center of Madrid
The apartment was pretty much like the pictures on VRBO. Maria was very easy to deal with even though she was on holiday during our stay. Maria's property manager was very attentive but we did struggle with the fact that she did not speak English. The location was perfect as it was just a few short blocks from the metro station. A definite gem for the money
My adult daughter and I stayed in Maria's lovely apartment for three nights in June and had a terrific experience. The apartment itself is lovely -- bright and cheery, spotlessly clean and well-equipped, and quiet -- and the location served us very well as we came and left by train and were primarily interested in visiting museums which were in walking distance. Thank you for the flowers, Maria, and for being accommodating.
Overall we had a good experience with this rental. Maria Jose was super helpful before and during our stay. She answered all of our questions and gave good recommendations. The apartment was clean and pretty spacious (compared to other places we stayed in Spain!). One bedroom has a double bed and the other a twin bed. There is a comfortable sofa bed in the living room.
The only negative was the neighborhood--it was not the greatest. There was a lot of garbage on the street, and people hanging out in bars. I never felt unsafe, but it just wasn't too pleasant to walk on our little street. However, the location was good, as we could walk everywhere. The Reina Sofia museum is a 10 min walk away, as is the Atocha train station. The Prado and other tourist sites were no more than 20 mins away on foot. For the price this apartment is a good value as long as you don't mind the neighborhood!
This apartment met our needs for accommodation and amenities, conveniently located affording us an opportunity to experience and blend in with the diversity of the Spanish locals and close enough to enjoy the major tourist attractions of Madrid. Maria Jose was a pleasure to deal with meeting us at check-in and providing us tips to make our stay more productive and enjoyable.
About the only negative during our stay was a lingering, unpleasant odor throughout the apartment which was rather overbearing when the apartment was totally closed while we were out during the day. We opened the windows at night which dissipated most of the smell.
First, we would like to say that after a ten week trip through Europe, the best host we encountered was Maria Jose. She went out of her way to help us, first by keeping some of our luggage before we arrived, and then welcoming us with fresh flowers, cookies and fruit! She was a wealth of information about where to go and eat, and where to find taxis, metro, etc. The apartment itself is very nice and clean, with a very well equipped kitchen. I would recommend it for three people, so that you don't have to use the living room couch for sleeping, but it worked out nicely for my husband, myself and two grandaughters. We plan to return and will love using this apartment again!
The location of the apartment was perfect. Close to the Atocha Train Station, subway station, Reina Sofia, Prado, Royal Gardens, Reitiro Park. All within walking distance. All others short subway ride. Apartment is located in a typical Spanish neighborhood where two markets are located nearby as well as the huge flee market if you stay on Sunday. The owner Maria is a kind lady who is very responsive to your needs. The apartment was warm and inviting.
