The apartment was light, spacious, spotless, and well equipped, and was in a great location, safe and easy walking distance from the museums, Retiro park, Plaza Mayor, the palace, shops and restaurants, in a quiet residential street close to some of the big hotels. Sol was an excellent and attentive host, checking on us during our stay, and juggling her schedule to drive us from and to the airport, which was much appreciated. The apartment is on the second floor at the back of the building and all windows face on to internal light shafts (i.e. no view to outside the building), which could feel a little closeted. However, this did mean that the apartment was quiet and peaceful, and, as we were out all day anyway, the convenient location and comfort of the apartment easily compensated for this. We would recommend this apartment as a great place to stay when visiting Madrid.
This was the best apartment vacation experience of my life. Everything was perfect. The apartment, which we used with 4 people, was clean and comfortable and in a great location. Sol was incredibly nice - she was always prompt with communication, picked us up and dropped us off at the airport, and was all around a fantastic host. I recommend this place highly!!
Sol is a nice host: she readily responded to queries, gave good recommendations on places to visit and eat, and checked on us a few times during our stay. The apartment is clean, spacious and in a perfect location -- a few minutes walk from the three top museums in Madrid. You can literally walk to most places and lots of good eateries around. The Quarter of the Arts is a great neighborhood and we really like it. The street itself and the apartment are very quiet, no noise at all. There is coffee and a good selection of tea with some packed biscuits and pastries in the kitchen. There was an issue with the fuse while the washing machine was turned on for the first time, but Sol quickly came to the apartment to inspect the issue. It only happened on the first day and everything worked fine for the rest of our stay. Sol can pick you up for 25 euros (5 euros cheaper than a taxi) from the airport, making the check-in very easy. I'd recommend this apartment, especially if you have four adults as it is spacious with two bedrooms and two bathrooms.
The house is close to everything on foot!!! 3min from Thyssen, 5min from Prado, 5min to tourist information office, 10min from Reina Sofia, 5min from the traditional city center. Super fully equipped, 2 WC-showers, big cardboards, heating at your wish, concierge service. Extremely clean!!! AND Sol is a great host!!
