Spacious apartment right in downtown Madrid, a few blocks from the Prado Museum (hence the name of this apartment: Prado Residence Atico C) on the top floor of the building on Costanilla de los Desamparados. It is composed of two bedrooms, a double one and a twin one. There´s a sofa in the living room that can be folded out for two guests to sleep on. There are two bathrooms with shower cabins in this apartment, and a kitchen with basic facilities. Bed sheets and towels provided.
This is a great little apartment. We stayed here as a group of 5, which was ideal. It might be a little bit small for 6, but definitely manageable. The upstairs bedroom is a mezzanine and has no door between it and the sitting room, so if there are people on the sofa-bed, its a good idea if they at least get on well with those on the sofa-bed as you can see into the bedroom up the stairs from the sofa!
The two terraces were a great plus and the lower one had a table and chairs which came in handy for enjoying the sun.
Apartment overall is in good condition and very clean. Hot water a little slow and missing a light cover for the light over the lower bathroom sink, but otherwise no complaints.
Great location and easy to get to all the sights and to and from the airport.
Big plus is that you collect your keys from a safe by the door - there is no need to meet someone at the flat - this makes a big difference if, like us, your flight is delayed.
We had hoped that we could leave our bags in the apartment until 6pm and were told before our trip that if we phoned at the weekend and there was no one booked to come that night, this would be possible. Despite both the Airbnb website and the company website saying the apartment was free for the next 3 nights, we were told it wasn't possible as there were guests booked. This may have been true - who knows? Although it felt rather like there had never been any intention of allowing us to leave our bags. In any event, Atocha train station is 10 minutes walk and has secure and cheap left luggage, as well as a direct bus to the airport for 5 Euros.
Definitely a great little apartment to stay in with a group of ffriends and I would recommend it. Just don't get your hopes up if you are told it might be possible for you to leave your bags there after 11am on check-out day!
The apartment was cute and well equiped with a very good location and great facilities
