We stayed in a basic studio apartment on the first floor of the building. The studio was small but nice, and just what we needed for our short three night stay. It was very clean, and there's plenty of lighting and ample wardrobe space.
This place is well located and the decor etc. is fine. The problem is there is no acoustic insulation either inside or in the windows. There is non-stop noise outside from busses, bin lorries, revelry makers, songsters, flamenco dancers, .... We didn't get a single...More
This actually my first ever review on trip advisor and I had to write it after having one of the worse nights sleep of my life. I checked in for 1 night into an entry level apartment. The apartment itself is adequate and the reception...More
I booked a Plaza Mayor apartment through their VRBO website in January, 2016, for a three-night stay in June, 2016. At the time of booking, they charged me 198 euros deposit. An hour after booking, I received a phone call from a family member which...More
Good things: amazing location, really close to Plaza Mayor (around 100m), really full equipment. Personnel at the reception during the day (till 6pm). Things that can be improved: acustic insulation - staying in a really center location means even some noise during the night, nothing...More
Expansive plazas, local and foreign crowds, street performers, colorful lights, window shopping, restaurant signs promising the best paella, ham, and churros con chocolate- this is downtown Madrid, a collection of plazas interconnected by a network of side streets. Some of these side streets are wide pedestrian shopping routes, and some are hidden, so it's possible to duck in and out of the bustle as
desired. The iconic Puerta del Sol is the giant crossroads of the city and a must-see attraction at any time of the day. The nearby Plaza Mayor, completely enclosed by historic red buildings, is an ideal place to grab a bite to eat outside, amidst scores of tables and people out for a stroll. Plaza Isabel II (also known as “Opera”) is smaller and a good meeting spot, and the stately Plaza del Oriente is the front yard of the Royal Palace. Centro can be touristy (pickpockets are unfortuately not unheard-of here), crowded, and sometimes gimmicky, but it is also the place to experience classic Madrid.
