Cheap way to stay in the heart of Madrid, very close to Sol square and subway. Not the most quiet place, but that comes with the location. Apartment was very small for 5 people, and almost no windows which adds to the crowded feeling inside. Friendly service.

Together with 5 other friends, I have gone through a highly undesirable experience which was managed in a very unprofessional way. We have booked a 6 pax apartment in Madrid in order to attend the Madrid Marathon on April 28th. On the night of the 26th, at 1am, a leak started in the living room, pouring water right on the...

My family was staying in Madrid for 5 nights, so we thought that staying in an "apartment" would be the best and most affordable option. The apartment was as expected- our logic whenever we goon vacation is that we are only there to sleep/store luggage. My "cons" list didn't bother us, but may bother other visitors. If I ever come...

The apartment was as expected. we had everything we needed and we really enjoyed staying there! It was great to be in the heart of the city and everything was within walking distance. Although, I had read some reviews about noise complaints, during our stay, we had no such problem and it was really quiet.

I knew we were in for a farce as soon as we had signed the agreements, yes it's great for the Sol, and when the guy we met said about how closing the windows would cut out the sound and demonstrated with the offices double glazed window it rang alarm bells.

I really liked this place. It was clean, bright and airy with a nice kitchen and a balcony overlooking the street.

Arenal Apartments is such a great place. Secret tip - take the 1A Apartment. It'great and big. I liked this place, it's in the city centre, everything is close to you. Shame it's not an elevator here and the stairs are not in good shape.

We are sure you'd like to know that we have more apartments with the same quality as the 1A, and even bigger! Anyway we are glad you enjoyed it and we wish to see you again soon. Remember that you have a 5% off the next reservation now that you got our fidelity card. Kind regards.

Staying in Centro

Neighbourhood Profile
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.
