My husband and I were looking to stay in the city and experience life through the eyes of the locals. This apartment was perfect. Very comfortable and clean. Cristina is just the kind of host we love! Very thorough in describing what we needed to know about the apartment, getting around in the area, making recommendations for us. We had a lovely stay. I must say if you are looking for something a little more quiet, being in the city center is not for you. Thanks Cristina for everything! Would definitely stay again.
The Perfect Place
I couldn't imagine a more perfect place to stay in Madrid than Cristina's property. The pictures do not even do it justice-the apartment is so lovely! The balcony doors let in so much natural light. The bed is incredibly comfortable as well. The kitchen has all that you need and the bathroom is very well equipped. The apartment is on the 1st floor (2nd in US) and there is an elevator but the stairs are so easy. Although the doors face the street, I didn't hear any noise at night-but I do live in New York so I might just be used to the noise! Cristina thoughtfully provided earplugs next to the bed if needed.
Location-Absolutely perfect! 15 minutes from the Royal Palace and 15 minutes from the Prado Museum. Plaza Mayor and Plaza del Sol are less than a 5 minute walk away. Fabulous restaurants are surrounding you-including Restaurant Botin (the oldest restaurant in the world and I had an excellent dinner there). The Mercado-an open air food and wine market is just on the other side of Plaza Mayor,
I would recommend this apartment to anyone who is looking for a lovely and welcoming space while in Madrid. Cristina was the perfect hostess and very communicative before and during my stay. She was very helpful with recommendations and directions as well.
Amazing trip all around and this apartment helped to make trip even better than I imagined.
Enjoyed the location.
We were happy with the location. It was nice for 2 people and we very much enjoyed our stay.
Property was as described, and the noise at night is a serious! Every night the trash guys pick up multiple times throughout the night, and it sounds like they are in the apartment. Christine’s husband who checked us in warned us about it, so it wasn’t as big of surprise.
Communication with Christine at check in was easy, but later on in our stay (1week total) workers were coming into the apartment and she didn’t communicate it with me. Instead my mom found her in the place while I was gone, which was disappointing to hear.
For a weeks stay, she had given us two small trash bags and two rolls of toilet paper, so we ended up restocking both ourselves.
Overall, location with this apartment is the best feature hands down.
I am sorry when I see there has been some misunderstanding with my guests. As an experienced hostess, the only way to avoid that is to communicate during the stay and not after. This way things can be improved during the stay.
This is one of these cases.
First of all, guests should inform how many they are, to provide linen, towels, etc. for all. And this guest booked for one person only!! Never you asked me for two people!!!
About the visit to the apartment for maintenance works, I rang the bell in the morning to ask permission to enter and talked to the person there (she never introduced herself and it is compulsory to inform about new guests). Anyway, she informed me she was leaving and we waited until she left to proceed. I was checking the work when she came back and I left almost immediately. I really cannot understand this remark!!!
And finally, noise. During the years I have rented the apartment some guests have complained about it. Mostly not. The apartment is located in central Madrid in a narrow street with restricted traffic and no late-night bars. Only municipality services go down the street and they might make noise during the night. When I lived there I took this inconvenience as the counterbalance for location, but always I could manage through it!
Amazing place to stay
Cristina was an amazing host. She accommodated our early arrival and stopped by to ensure we were all set with the crib. Location was perfect in the middle of everything and very clean. We enjoyed our week and would definitely stay again.
Thank you, family. It is always a pleasure to host small kids as cute as yours!!
Be back anytime!
Great Apt in a Great Location!!
My husband and I enjoyed this beautiful apt. in a fabulous part of Madrid. The apt. is perfectly located to walk most everywhere !! Cristina was a perfect host and everything in the apt. worked well and was quite comfortable. We were glad to have an elevator for the bags too !! My only suggestion is to think ahead when departing as the keys which need to be left in the apt. are also the keys which unlock the outside door downstairs, it would be easy to get locked in !!! Overall a great apt. and we will stay again on our next visit to the beautiful city of Madrid.
Thank you for your stay and nice review. I forgot to warn you about opening the door is very easy from inside!! It is a system very common in Spain but you Americans are not used to....just to push a switch near the door. Do not worry nobody can be locked in, never!!!
Anyway, it is very funny how simple things are not so evident as we used to think. Thank you for remind me!
