DO NOT HESITATE TO CONTACT ME FOR ANYTHING YOU NEED TO KNOW
Fidel is a very nice host. The flat is in the middle of the center, 2 corners from Gran Via. But very quiet during the night for sleeping with open window. So just perfect. The room was nice and clean. The appartement in general is very modern and high quality.
We were welcomed by Rosa and she was a very host. My daughter and I used it only to shower and sleep since we were constantly moving about the city. On the positive side, it is in the center of where all the activity is going on which is very convenient, close to the Metro. The restrooms was was very, very clean, the first place I use to base my observation is the restroom and shower and as well as the bedroom we used which had two beds. On the down side, it is on the 5th floor, so if you are not in shape and you have to carry some luggage up, be ready, but you only have to do it one time and you can take your time. The other was the internet, it was hit and miss, but we did not spend a whole lot of time there. All in all, I recommend it, I would stay there again for sure.
My apologies for the WIFI signal but I forgot to tell to Rosa about the signal extender of the room which never was connected. That room is just behind a big wall and without the device is weaker but you has very good connection in the rest of the flat.
You and your daughter are always welcome to my flat. Thanks.
The good: Great location (food, sightseeing, shopping, metro, etc.) Quiet area for sleeping hours. Comfy bed set. Fidel is a great host, as welcoming as visiting your uncle/aunts house.
The bad: Poor wifi signal in the room. Hot water was limited, my cousin and I, at least had one cold morning shower each.
We had a fantastic time in Madrid, sadly too short. Fidel's beautiful apartment is in a perfect and very central location.
Fidel has been extremely nice, available for us and helpful. He really loves Madrid, knows it well and gave us some useful tips. Thoroughly enjoyable experience and we would strongly recommend it!
The flat is wonderfull. A great work of an architect. White lightfull clean and Fully central. 3 ' from puerta FEL sol. Do not hesitate.
La descripción del anuncio es tal cual se ve en la foto, cumplio la esceptativas ampliamente, Fidel no se encontraba en el piso pero dejó a una anfitriona de altura.
La ubicación del piso es inmejorable.
Lo mejor la limpieza del lugar.
