This apartment is in a fantastic location. It is a short walk to Plaza Mayor and there are many restaurants in the area to eat at. We had no problem with noise which is important for sleeping and as you are in the central district with a lot of restaurants and bar this is always a concern. We had no such problems except the day the rubbish was collected. There is also a small Carefour close by for groceries. The Opera Metro station is about a two minute walk away which is important when you are a tourist and want to get to all the attractions. The apartment is on the first floor, however there is a small lift so you do not have to carry your cases up the stairs. The apartment has everything you could want in facilities. It was good value for money. A few little things were showing signs of wear and tear but they were so minimal it did not impact our stay at all. Spain Select. met us and showed us into the apartment and gave us maps. We had arranged with them to have a driver at the airport to meet us and as there were four of us this worked out cheaper than two taxis. Can highly recommend this apartment and Spain Select.
Thanks so much for sending us your feedback after your stay in our apartment Escalinata. We are thrilled to hear all of you enjoyed the location and had a perfect sleep! We also appreciate your positive experience with our airport transfer service. We hope to have the chance to welcome you again in the near future.

I just spent a week with a friend at Escalinata and we were both thrilled with the accommodation and the service we received from Spain Select. The condo was beautifully decorated (looked just like the pictures) and had everything we needed for our stay. The beds were very comfortable and being on a side street it was quiet so it was perfect for staying up late and sleeping in! The location was ideal, with everything we needed nearby and close to the Palacio Real, Mercado de San Miguel and Plaza Mayor. The Opera metro stop was steps away for getting to further destinations. The whole rental experience from Spain Select was smooth and easy with no surprises! Their website is great and the staff is very friendly and answered any questions very quickly. I hope to return to the beautiful city of Madrid and if I do, I'll definitely be staying at Escalinata again!
