“Wow! Could not have asked or expected more”
We stayed in the apartment for 12 days and 11 nights in mid July. It was above and beyond what we expected and we had a wonderful stay. It was so easy to book and Sonia (the owner) was so helpful in helping us plan how to get there from the airport as well as other useful information. When we arrived we didn't have any difficulties in obtaining the key and we found the apartment well equiped and contained everything that we needed to make our stay more comfortable. Other guests have commented on the stairs - there are 104 in total as we counted them!! After a few days though they do get easier and don't let them put you off booking this apartment. It is in a prime location, literally just up the street from the Sol metro stop and everything was within walking distance. There was virtually no noise from the street below and we felt very safe at all times around the apartment even at 3am. The heat in July was bedtween 35 and 40 degrees c however as a fan was made available we soon realised that we could place this in the living area which had the aircon unit and it kept our room cool at night. Another tip is to keep the bedroom windows and blinds down in the daytime! We had no difficulty sleeping or keeping cool. We certainly would book the apartment again as it is exceptionally reasonable in price and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay.
“We had a blast! Very nice place & so central right by Puerto Del”
So we loved Madrid. We loved just about everything about it, including this apartment. The apartment is just about 3 blocks away from the Puerto Del Sol and Gran Via. It also seems to be about 3 blocks away from everything - not really, but everything you want to see in Madrid is within walking distance: the Prado, the Palace, Plaza Mayor, Retiro Park, and all the wonderful sights of this amazing city. Back to the apartment: luckily I'm a bit of a gym-rat, so the stairs weren't too bad for me until about the third day, and by then it seemed that those "5 flights" are more like 8 with the landings as it's an old building. My 5-year-old didn't care, my 16-year-old did, but teenagers...what are you going to do. It's also a bit warm in the apartment and Madrid was having a very warm May, I don't know how hot it would be in summer - but probably pretty hot - especially in the bedroom - because it doesn't have an air-conditioning unit in it note to tall people: My husband is 6' 3" and every time we left the apartment he hit his head on the light fixture (which gave us a very saying "Mi Braino No Bueno"!). Everyone one of us, from my son at 4 1/2 feet to my husband hit their heads on the ceiling beams - we learned very quickly. The good: We happened to hit Madrid during the festival of San Ysidro (the patron saint of Madrid), so after watching fireworks in Retiro Park the first night we watched them the 2nd night from the terrace. The kids had a nice area and my son loved people-watching from the terrace and then eating at 11pm! All in all, we would stay again. It was a blast, and so close to everything. We only took the Metro once, and that was when my shoe broke - but no worries there are a zillion shoe stores in Madrid. It's all about location, location, location - where it's located makes those stairs seem like a fabulous memory and those bumps on the head no worries!!! Awww...I wish I were there right now!
“Stairway to Heaven”
We knew that it was a five flight walk-up to the apartment so there were no surprises. But the small effort was well worth it. The lead up to our arrival was absolutely hassle free. Emails were answered promptly and Sonia's detailed advice on getting to the apartment from the airport made the journey a breeze. When we arrived Sonia left us with a wealth of info on the Sol area with tips on where to shop, eat, visit and of course, sip a drink or two.The apartment was fantastic. Everything was just as the photos depicted. To have the option of cooking for ourselves is always important and the well equipped kitchen allowed us to do this on a couple of nights. The terrace was certainly the deal maker for us. Whilst not overly large, it gave that little bit of extra space to unwind after taking in a days wandering around Madrid. The sloping ceiling was a minor inconvenience. Sol seemed to be the heart of the city and the apartment was within easy walking distance of most major attractions. We would have no hesitation in recommending Sonia's apartment to visitors to Madrid.
“Great pad in Madrid!”
Loved our stay at Sonia's place. Amazing location! Really enjoyed the terrasse & lots of windows. The internet connection was flawless. Sonia was so accomodating letting us leave our bags early the morning of our arrival so we could be free to sightsee before the apartment was ready for check in. Would recommend this place to anyone who is not scared of 5 flights of stairs! Helps work off all the good food!
“The best location for a foreign traveler!”
Loved this appartment! The location is great. I could walk to Puerta Del Sol, all the shops on Fuencaral, restaurants and the parks. It was perfect for someone new to the city. My host, Ms. Sonia Torreira was very kind in suggesting evening entertainment and day-time sight-seeing. The apartment is clean, comfortable and the view from the balcony is to be remembered! I especially enjoyed having my coffee out there and experiencing the buzzing city life below me...the six flights of stairs were a welcome excersice after all the good food in Madrid! l would highly recommend spending your vacation there!
“beautiful space, beautiful views in the very center of madrid”
i can only say great things about the apartment in sol. its well decorated and very functional. sonia was extremely helpful in not only giving pratical tips but also sending us to some non-touristy restaurants, markets and shops. you can tell that she really loves sharing madrid with her guests!
You are centrally located in the heart of Madrid with stores, cafes and main tourist attractions all around you. Apartment is spacious and so very convenient! Sleeps 4 comfortably and having access to a washer is a welcome treat while on vacation. Only drawback is climbing the stairs
