Great location ! Right at the heart of the city, although at night with the windows shut everything was very quiet, and the apartment was perfect for a good night's sleep. There is good Air Conditioning in the apartment too. This is perfect for a family looking to explore Madrid for a few days. Very near the Sol Metro stop, and easy walking distance of the Palace, the Plaza Mayor etc........
It was a comfortable,clean apartment. We did like how convenient it was to Puerta del Sol. Shopping, supermarket in el Corte Ingles just across the square. There are a quiet a bit of travelers in the building their is a HOSTAL , second floor, which is good, since people come and go, so not a lonely doorway. It is safe , to walk around even late at night, turn the corner not on the square quaint restaurant streets. Easy to take a cab , bus across street, train station. Only thing front bedroom a slight buzz from plaza performers , two times at night, ends at 2 am , weekend 7 am ,,, really good windows, keep them closed. You slightly hear it that way . It is nice, safe, family friendly. One thing only the showers have slippery grey tiles , seniors have a slight problem with that, buy a cheap disposable shower mat.
Really great central location apartment, hop on hop of is less than 2 blocks away. Nice owner, very prompt.
Owner was waiting, very nice explained everything.
We found the owner, Enrique to be very responsive from the time we inquired about the Puerto deal Sol property in January. He always responded within 24 hours and was pleasant to work with. Cristina, the property manager was equally as responsive and accommodated us well. She even set up our airport transfers for us. Upon arrival, she was waiting patiently for our family and checkin was seamless and straightforward.
We were a family of five ( 2 teenagers and a 9 year old), so this 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom apartment was perfect for us. Having a fully equipped kitchen was great. We purchased food items for breakfast and snacks, which helped reduce costs for eating out on every meal. The grocery store was was right across the square from the apartment. So convenient!
The location doesn't get any better! We were right in Puerto deal Sol, which was a 5 minute walk to Plaza Mayor, lots of restaurants and other attractions. Given the apartment was located on the 5th floor (6th in US), it was nice to have an elevator. This property came equipped with wifi, which works primarily in the front of the apartment and worked very well.
It would have been helpful to us, if there had been instructions in English on how to use the washing machine. It was not as intuitive to use as an American washer. The DVD player didn't read our discs, so we weren't able to watch any of the movies we brought with us. I would suggest putting a few brochures in the apartment, to help those not familiar with the area. The best aspects of the apartment were the cleanliness, spaciousness and comfort. The view of The square from the balcony was just like the picture on the Internet! Loved the view!
We would definitely return to this location again!

The apartment is right in the heart of Madrid, on Puerto del Sol. We were within walking distance of all the major Madrid sights, and right by the metro station for anything else. We loved the location! The apartment was very spacious and well appointed, We had six adults staying there, so the roomy bathrooms and kitchen were great for us. I would definitely rent this apartment again
