My first review so want to be fair to the owner and travellers. Went for 4 days with 6 family aged late 30s to mid 60s, though apartment does sleep 15, as 2 of the 4 bedrroms have several bunks. We had a great time, it was what we wanted, but it depends what your expectations are. It's a good central location with great traditional atmosphere. Inevitably, on a square in a capital city there is a fair amount of noise quite late at night and odd bursts throughout, but you dont go to Madrid for peace and quiet! We were out till nearly 2am anyway. You do need to have the windows closed so it could be too hot in the high summer for us. The flat IS as shown in the pictures but possibly not as smart as it appears. A mix of some traditional character, not least the shuttered balcony windows overlooking the square, and some a bit 'dated' by UK standards. The bedrooms are a bit sparse, kitchen best described as retro 50's, and bathrooms ok if you dont expect luxury. The shower temperature was erratic. I have nothing to compare with but from the research I did it's probably typical for Madrid for the price. The layout is a bit quirky on first impression but it works ok and suited the dynamics of our group, so we could all stay together.. It's probably used more by larger younger groups which would work out better value but was still good value for 6 people in that location. The owner, Ernesto, was very helpful and answered all my questions fairly, including about the on going building work in the square which will at some point move round to where the flat is. His mum was there to let us in at 10pm as arranged and was very friendly though only spoke a bit of english, but phoned Ernesto so we could ask any questions. A very nice Dutch lady was there at checkout and all went smoothly. Would recommend if you want character and atmosphere in a great location and not expecting 5* hotel standard.
