My wife and I loved this apartment in many ways. That said, there were a few things that disturbed us greatly about our month-long experience living here.
Beautiful terrace with a view atop the roofs of central Madrid.
Location can’t be beat, in close proximity to everything tourists come to Madrid to see and do.
Elevator (most of the time)
Clean and furnished well.
We arrived 15 minutes late of the hour we were set to arrive, and they didn’t charge us. (I guess this is a good thing, because the girl who checked us in definitely wanted to charge us extra, but her management company told her “no”)
NO DRYER, despite the listing saying there was a dryer, the apartment only has a washer. Not only was it deceptive of the person listing, they ignored and dodged my questions about this for weeks. In the end I asked for a small discount since the apartment did not come as described. This too was ignored. When AirBnB lists a “dryer” they are not meaning a line-dryer. They mean a mechanical dryer. At other places I have stayed on AirBnB they were upfront about this, not here.
POOR RESPONSE RATE – We were never explained how to use the washer, so our clothes came out sopping wet. After ringing them out in the sink for weeks and asking for guidance, they finally sent someone to explain the washer to us. Literally 3 weeks into staying here.
NO FOLLOW THROUGH - Upon checking in we found that there was no working battery in the AC. The girl who checked us in thought the whole AC was broken. Fortunately we were able to switch out the TV remote batteries to get it working. It’s a good thing, because after telling us that they would be back in 2 days with batteries, they were not back with batteries for 3 weeks.
CATS – The neighbor has cats, which she has no problem letting out her window onto your private balcony. I found this irritating. The apartment owner said there was nothing they could do about it, and to take it up with cat owner. Which I did, and the problem stopped, but such a pain to have to deal with this.
MANAGEMENT COMPANY – Don’t expect any kind of warm welcome here. This apt is definitely run by a management company and is a business for them. Once you’ve paid they make very little effort to make sure you’re comfortable. Hope everything works, and be prepared to roll with the punches if it doesn’t. The person that checked us in seemed very put-out by the fact that we were 15minutes late.
ELEVATOR – It’s a 6 story building. The tiny elevator worked most of the time. But I would say for about 25% of our trip it was broken. Not recommended for an older person who would have difficulty with stairs.
O apartamento é muitíssimo bem localizado e, embora no centro de grande movimentação (Porta do Sol e Praça Maior), fica numa posição protegida do fluxo turístico. É quase um "oásis" no centro de Madrid. As instalações são simples e a planta poderia ser melhor acabada. Entretanto, é um lugar charmoso, especialmente pela varanda sobre os telhados... O defeito efetivo é o tamanho da cozinha... É, na verdade, um pequeno balcão, instado num recuo da habitação. As atendentes, Alina e Helene, foram pontuais e atenciosas. Agradecemos pela atenção!
Appartamento centralissimo, terrazza dove poter mangiare o bere un aperitivo al tramonto. Letto comodo. Bagno sufficientemente spazioso specialmente la doccia. Lavatrice con asciugatrice. Appartamento molto luminoso con aria condizionata ben funzionante. Rete wireless ottima.
Cucina troppo piccola, può andare bene x fare la colazione. Assenza di lavastoviglie. Lenzuola del letto non all'altezza. Cuscini scandalosi. Buco di scarico sulla terrazza che spesso lasciava uscire cattivi odori che venivano spinti dal vento dentro la camera obbligandoci a tenere chiusa la porta finestra. L'ascensore non parte dal piano terra ma bisogna fare una rampa di scale e noi avevamo un passeggino. Televisione con pochi canali funzionanti.
Muchas gracias por tus comentarios Gianluca. Nuestro objetivo es mejorar cada día. Esperamos que en tu próxima estancia sean todo PROS! ("La ringrazio molto per i vostri commenti Gianluca.

Excellent apartment in the centre of town. The apartment is close to everything you could the k of from metro stations, shopping, pharmacy and night life. So many tapa bars just around the corner. I would definitely recommend this apartment to any future renters.
The balcony is a plus having early morning coffee or breakfast out there with the fantastic views.
This cozy unit is as described...even has a rooftop terrace with a view...best location in the heart of all Madrid's main attractions...1 block from Puarta del Sol.
The host was prompt and waited for our late arrival from airport and introduced us to all the features of the unit...Be sure to ask for internet service...a mobile unit was provided upon request...Would definitely stay here again upon next visit to this beautiful city...

Thank you very much Steve! We want to inform you that we are in process to improve the Internet connection in this apartment. After your comments we have reviewed the description and though it would be a good idea to ask the Tourism Office for some maps, so our guest could be more settled. Hope we see you again soon!
