Nous avons été très bien reçu par la soeur de José qui nous attendait à l'heure précise; nous avions une bouteille de champagne au frais et l'appartement était très agréable et parfaitement central, tout était à côté, restaurants, bars, musées et tutti quanti. Madrid est une ville géniale et nous y reviendrons certainement.
Met veel kunst ingericht ruim appartement op een perfecte plek in de stad. Bij aankomst was de beheerster aanwezig om ons de verschillende zaken van het appartement uit te leggen en mogelijke suggesties voor restaurants te geven.
Wij hebben we er met erg veel plezier 3 dagen gezeten en zullen de volgende keer dat we in Madrid zijn weer terug gaan. Oorspronkelijk zouden we met 6 personen in het appartement zitten. Het appartement is daar ruim genoeg voor, maar de twee laatste bedden leken ons wel wat klein (maar wij zijn met 2,03 en 1,95 ook wat lang in vergelijking tot de Spanjaarden)
Incredible location - short walks to Plaza Sol, Plaza Isabel & Mercado Central. Steps from the Plaza Mayor & great food & people watching. The apartment is huge!! Well appointed with most of what you need for your stay. If you need anything call Mercedes - host's sister & your problem is solved. We arrived 2 hours early & Mercedes allowed us to leave luggage in apartment. There is a small market around the corner for wine, cheeses, jamon, fruits & vegetables. Just enjoy! Only critique- could use better wifi.
This is a highly recommended property. The host communicated clearly and in an welcoming manner from the start, and his sister Mercedes who greeted us at the apartment was friendly, helpful and informative.
The apartment itself is perfectly located - Madrid is very easy to walk in, and most sights are within walking distance. The ambience, space, and décor are tasteful and delightful, and we felt at home very quickly. The apartment is well appointed for all purposes, and I can warmly recommend it for a perfect city break.
