“Excellent location”
Reviewed 6 October 2014 for a stay in October 2014

My wife and I stayed here for 3 nights. The location of the apartment is perfect for walking to all the major attractions of this city. In particular the Plaza Mayor and Mercado San Miguel are only 100 meters away. There is even a bus stop for the hop on-off city tour bus over the road. The apartment was very quiet and the bed was comfortable so we slept really well.
The furnishings were contemporary and the whole place was spotlessly clean. We had no problem with hot water for showers. We showered straight after each other and for us there was ample hot water. The air con also acts as heating and worked very well.
You need to be aware that it is really a very large studio apartment rather than a one bed apartment. There is only a thin moveable room partition between the bed and the lounge and kitchen. This is OK for 2 people but may be an issue if you try to sleep 4.
I would have liked a kettle but managed to heat water in a pan for coffee. Also I would have liked a second pillow on the bed. There was everything else that we needed for our stay, and the owner spoke good English and was helpful when we asked for some local knowledge. Oh yes, and remember the 74 steps from ground level to the front door!

“Good studio apartment in great location.”
Reviewed 1 June 2014 for a stay in May 2014

My wife and I spent 6 nights in this apartment. We found it comfortable and clean. It was located within walking distance to most of the tourist attractions. The only concerns for us was that it was located on the 3rd floor (70 steps), you must wait at least 15 minutes for the hot water to reheat after each shower and we had some difficulty entering the ground floor wrought iron doors, we had to put the key into the inside key hole to unlock the door.

“Room for a little improvement”
Reviewed 7 May 2014 for a stay in May 2014

Firstly we were welcomed to the flat personally & although the owners father didnt speak our language (English - then again why should he?!) he managed to communicate a very warm welcome which was great.

The flat was immaculately clean and looked like the pictures apart from one small issue. Whilst we fully expected the flat to be small, it cannot rightly be described as a 'one bedroomed' flat. It is a large studio i.e. one long room with a divider for the bed area. You walk into the bed area which is located at the back of the flat (good for keeping noise down and it was quiet enough for us) and then through to the rest.

The bed area is right next to the kitchen separated by material dividers and in turn, the bathroom leads off of the kitchen so it wasn't at all suitable for any kind of self catering. Not that this is required as the location is absolutely fantastic.

The apartment is located next to the 'Mercado San Miguel'. This sells an amazing variety of tapas drinks etc and we found ourselves there most days. In addition, the major art galleries are within walking distance (20 mins walk) and the area La Latina is also in walking distance (15 mins walk) for bars and more tapas. There are also bars and restaurants along the street on which the apartment itself is located.

Noise is minor - there was some noise from studenty types we met staying in the apartment block itself but only on the Friday night and only when coming up and down the stairs. It didnt prevent us from sleeping. The street noise wasnt an issue at all.

We also had a slight issue where we got locked out of the door leading to the hallway and internal flat door. It was 1am and we realised we had not been provided with an emergency contact number. Our neighbours assisted us (very kindly) with emailing the owner who got back to us by email to say that his phone had been out of use for a couple of days. Clearly if we had been locked out for two of our four nights we booked this would have been totally unacceptable. I do think however, this is a really minor issue which could be solved very easily i.e make sure you get a contact number for emergencies!

We also found the shower turned cold after one of us had taken a shower, again not ideal but potentially this should be capable of being resolved relatively easily. In general the apartment was very well equipped with towels, hangers, iron, utensils etc

Over all, it was nice but a few minor problems however, I do think if they were resolved it would be a fantastic good value apartment .

“Great location but very narrow 7 flights of steps”
Reviewed 21 April 2014 for a stay in April 2014

The location is 3 minutes walk to the Sol metro and has a variety of shops to dine at, get souvenirs, and get groceries. It is a VERY busy street but the apartment has a new large window that blocks 95% of the noise outside. Since we liked to hear the sounds of Madrid (which could be until after 2am, we kept the window slightly ajar for the fresh breeze -- -- we had beautiful weather in early April).

If you travel light, the SEVEN flights of uneven steps (could be charming?) may not be an issue. But we acquired a lot more having spent a week in the costa del sol and so taking the suitcases up was a workout to say the least. Also, for a family of four (with 11 and 13 yr old kids), the apartment could be cramped but if you use it just to sleep at night, it's not a big deal. Finally, we ran out of hot water one night after ONE 10minute shower - so space your showers! Kitchen space is very small but had most of the things you need for basic living -- but it's not for a lot of cooking.
