Recently spent 3 nights in this apartment. With 2 of us staying it was perfect for everything we needed. Location couldn't have been better to the main shopping area of Gran Via with 2 metro stops within 3 - 5 mins walk away all parts of city easily accessible. Supermarket and really nice bar 2 mins away so very handy indeed. Owner Pepa was so lovely and accommodating for leaving our bags in apartment til we were ready to go to airport. Will definately stay again on our next trip to Madrid!
We did not actually stay at this apartment. Shortly before we arrived the owner contacted us and told us of some construction delays that would make our stay uncomfortable. She returned our money immedeatly which was appreciated. We did visit the apartment to confirm her assessment and yes, the exterior and passages were a mess, but the apartment will be very nice once all the mess is gone.
My wife and I had a very enjoyable stay at this apartment which was ideally situated for walking to the sites, bars and restaurants of central Madrid. A local supermarket is less than a minute away. The apartment is small, but that is all we needed.
This is a great place if you want to get the feeling of being a local in Madrid. The location is awesome. I'm the hipster district, Malasana. Stay a week for biz and walked the same each day disciverong new restaurants, cafes and bars each time. Easy access to Tribunal Metro station and a easy 10min walk to Puerta del Sol. Execellent!! Execellent food nearby. La Bicicleta Cafe (late night beer or coffee) and this pizza stand across the street- awesome. Little markets for groceries. Pepa, the owner is very responsive and went out of her way to ensure my visit went smooth. Even went above and beyond with booking a dinner reservation. Her place has a great balcony view and the wifi worked perfect. Quick tip- in the daytime make note of the light switches in the main hall. Lights are off By default and good to know in advance... Not use to this in the USA.
The apartment was excellent. Close to the city centre and well equipped. The instructions to get into the apartment were clear. The taxi from the train station was good value - 10 euros though we could have also used the Metro.
