About check in and out
Upon arriving at the apartment at the agreed check-in time, we rang the door-bell with no reply. We decided to stay in the next door cafeteria in the hope that the host would show up. We tried ringing the bell, texting and calling the host several times to no avail. Finally after waiting for a total of 45 minutes we retried the door bell and this time our call was answered. In the apartment we were greeted by Ivan the building porter who apparently was running a little late to greet us. This could have been a one-off incident. However my problem was not the wait but rather the lack of clear communication from the host. Had he sent us a message mentioning that he was unavailable for check-in and that we would be instead greeted by the building porter and that he might be running late we would have understood the situation.
Otherwise the apartment was simply perfect. It is conveniently located a few steps away from Puerta del Sol, the most convenient location if you want to visit the major attractions in Madrid. It is also very close to the metro station for those using it. The apartment was clean, well light, equipped with a small kitchenette with a hob & microwave, a comfortable bed, air-conditioner, and towels. Also the shower had constant warm water supply. Thus despite the problem with the check-in I would suggest this apartment as it is ideal for a layover in Madrid.
1. Good location, very close to the city centre.
2. Fast internet connection.
3. Quiet place.
1. When we arrived we tried to call Eduard, but his cellphone was switched off. We also tried to e-mail him, but he hasn't answered even by now. In the flat we were met by a guy who even didn't speak English and it was very difficult to communicate with him. It is not such a big problem, but would be better to be informed about it in advance.
2. The flat was not very clean, there was a lot of dust on the floor. Fortunately, bathroom was clean enough.
3. We were three girls, and after one of us took a shower, there were no hot water for others.
4. Please be aware that the real size of the flat is smaller then it looks like at the photos (because there are mirrors on all the walls).
To sum up, the impression of the flat hasn't destroyed our trip, but I don't want to deal with Eduard in the future and will not recommend this flat to other people.
Great location! Small but cozy, there is room enough for two. It's lacking windows (skylight only, which we could not shut to keep out the light) but it didn't bother us too much as we were there to explore the city and not stay inside. The bathroom was adequate with enough hot water for two. Eduard was really flexible to meet us whenever we arrived and despite the language barrier we had no problems understanding his instructions. If you want to be in the heart of Madrid I highly recommend staying here!
Eduard was a good host. He answered email within a timely manner, and since he was out of town, provided us with a neighbor as a contact. The apartment was in the perfect (email hidden)ose to all the things we wanted to do...We never took a metro or taxi...Always walked. The bad on the apartment was the barking dog above us (probably a very small but loud dog). I would still book this apartment, as the price and location are perfect.
I stayed at Eduardo's apartement for 2 nights. It was a good choice considering its central location, only a few steps from Puerta del Sol.
Beside the location, the apartement got anything I need, all necesities such as good bed, small kitchen, fridge, bathroom, very bright, not to mention all restaurants/cafes, convenient stores around.
I didn't meet Eduardo in person (too bad) but he arranged my coming, even that I came quite late due to flight delay.
I personally recommend this apartment especially those who doesn't have much time in Madrid.
The location of this flat was fantastic and Eduard was helpful and friendly. The bed was comfy and the flat had everything we needed. I don't think you'll find a better deal in Madrid.
The apartment was ideal for what we required. Bang in the centre of Madrid, we could walk all over the city and still pop in during the afternoon for a light rest. The apartment was clean, quiet, had hot water, internet and a small kitchen with Kettle. Would stay here again, Eduard is friendly and hospitable and told me where the supermarket was so that we could stock up on food. Thank you again Eduard. Would definitely stay again.
what I can say...the location of Eduard apartment is dead center...just like he said to me on our arrival we are at ground zero of Madrid! The apartment is good for our little family, it was clean and has everything we need. If you want ride hop on hop off bus for tour around Madrid, it was just a stroll away from his apartment!
The apartment was smaler than in the picture but it was just right for us. We wanted to be in the center of everything and we certainly were. Yet it was not noisy. Eduard drew us a map of some walking tours we could take and then left us to ebjoy this beautiful city. The building and apartment are also very secure. The shower was perfect and the water hot. No complaints!
Great apartment, with an incredible location!
Apartment was spotlessly clean, Eduard obviously takes great pride and care in offering his guests top class accommodation!
Best location in Madrid, could walk everywhere we needed to go, and if not, the metro is right beside the apartment also!
Would definitely stay here again! Thanks again Eduard!
