My wife and I had a great experience at Luke's flat. It is steps away from the Puerta del Sol and very a short walk to many of the other sites in central Madrid such as the Palacio Real, Plaza Mayor, and Rastro market. While very close to the people and activity, once you enter the building, it's like a different world and a great escape from all the activity. The building has a doorman and always felt very safe. Luke's place is so much better than paying for a hotel - spacious, clean, and a great home base for seeing Madrid and beyond. The metro is right there in the Puerta del Sol providing easy access to the train stations for day trips outside of Madrid. We did day trips to Segovia and Toledo, which were amazing. I really can't say enough good things about Luke's place and how great it was for our week in Madrid. Aside from the place it itself, Luke communicates very well and was very flexible meeting us to check-in. I would definitely recommend Luke's flat to anyone travelling to Madrid.
Nice apartment very well located in the center of Madrid.
The apartment is conform to the description.
Th ehosts were very friendly and easy to communicate with.
Thanks Paola and Luke.
This spacious, light, comfortable and quiet apartment is in a splendid spot to explore the city, visit the major sights and shop, drink and eat to your hearts content. The delightful hosts are on hand and dedicated to ensure their guests have a good stay.
Although the kitchen is well equipped it is not for huge family cookfests as it is a tad small, but hey, who needs to cook much in Madrid? Right nextdoor is an excellent deli where we sometimes bought Iberico jamon, cheese, and wines to eat in after a long day. Open from early to late so really useful. All around the area are lovely restaurants, bars and pavement cafes in the squares to people watch and enjoy the city atmosphere and food shops galore..... Do visit the market! Very trendy and stylish now, full of divine selections of everything edible and quaffable!
The apartment is surprisingly quiet although it is conveniently central and we slept well, not needing the air-con so early in the year, but we did use the very efficient heating to take the chill off for a short while in the evening.
There is good water pressure in the shower and the plumbing is quiet! Handsoaps and toilet rolls galore are provided...the bathrooms is very clean and equidistant from both bedrooms and the living room.
There is a lift to this third floor apartment which is a great help with luggage on arrival and departure.
The whole place is very clean and furnished with plenty of seating and lighting, and there are loads of hangers and good hanging space, drawers and shelving in the bedrooms.
We very much appreciated the fresh milk, juice and welcome bottle of wine on arrival! The cost of a taxi from the airport was a set €30 but the Metro is very close and direct if you prefer that.
The wifi worked very well and although we didn't use the TV, Chromecast is available if you fancy it.
There is a doorman on duty during a lot of the evening and the security seems good, with several locked doors to prevent unwanted visitors from entering the building,
All in all we had a splendid stay and would definitely book here again if it was available!
We needed a central location very close to shops, restaurants, metro and importantly, a gym - my partner broke his leg in the months before our travel but desperately didn't want to miss out on the delights of Madrid. So we needed to stay at a central location with lots of amenities literally just a hop away. This amazing apartment was perfect - located very near the main metro of Sol and loads of shops, restaurants, ham and cheese deli and a gym nearby. The apartment is located on the walking street of Arenal so you are close to the vibrant street life that is a big part of the charm of this part of Madrid, but inside the apartment, it is very quiet. There is a charming little courtyard off the kitchen and in warmer days, it would be fabulous with a book and cup of coffee. The apartment is large with 2 full bedrooms and is outfitted with a mix of boho and high chic décor. For those who are mixing business with pleasure - there is a fast, reliable internet! Fantastic! Highly recommended for those who like a bit more room (especially when you are working) or who have a few people who want to join in the group. Luke looked after us really, really well - would book again - even when the broken leg is mended!!
