Overall, our stay at the apartment in Madrid was satisfactory. The linens were clean, the beds comfortable, and the AC fantastic! The shower was fantastic (plenty of hot & cold water). On another note, the washer & dishwasher didn't work. Although the listing said the host provided shampoo and essentials, there was no soap, shampoo, or paper towels. As for the neighborhood, the location was good. It was very convenient for most attractions and just around the corner from a metro stop.
Although Carlos was out of town, his friend Paqui greeted us warmly upon our arrival and made us feel right at home. She clearly explained everything about the apartment and gave us several recommendations for nearby grocery stores, bakeries, and cafes.
The location of the apartment could not have been better! The Plaza Mayor and Puerta del Sol were just a short walk away. Two nearby Metro stations provided convenient access to the entire city. Even though located in a busy part of town, the apartment was surprisingly quiet, being located on the top floor of the building. It didn't take long for the apartment to feel like home!
During our stay, it was very easy to reach Carlos about any questions we had or issues that arose. He responded promptly to all requests, and followed up to make sure everything was resolved.
We would love to stay at a place hosted by Carlos again!
Le logement était bien conforme aux photos, c'est un appartement agréable où l'on si sent très bien. :) Quant au quartier, la Latina reste pour moi l'un des meilleurs quartiers de Madrid.
Je suis allé à Madrid avec 3 de mes amis du 2 au 5 mai 2013.
Le lieu est parfait : proche de la plaza Mayor, au plein coeur de la ville proche de tout. Carlos le propriétaire est très sympathique. Nous ne l'avons pas vu mais les échanges par mail / SMS étaient très amicaux. Arrivés sur place petite déception par rapport à l'appartement qui était un peu moins bien que sur les photos. Il manquait des serviettes de toilettes et des draps. Mais il a suffit d'envoyer un sms à Carlos pour qu'un livreur arrive dans l'heure avec tout ce qu'il manquait. Donc pas grand chose à redire à part le wifi qui ne marche pas. Merci Carlos !
Bon voyage !
