Very difficult to rate overall: I would have given the flat itself five stars as well appointed, comfortable and beautifully clean. The transactions with owners and the lady who let us in were smooth and easy. The only downside was that we hadn't realised quite how noisy would be and that it would continue well into the small hours. I'm sure for people wishing to join in it would be perfect!
We really appreciated our stay in Alfonso's and Guillermo's appartment. It is perfect to discover Madrid by walking since it is located just behind the Puerta del Sol, and at the same time very easy to reach by train from the airport.
The terrace is perfect to have a sunny brunch or to rest after a long visiting day and it is definitely the reason why we recommend this appartment, but you should know that the street is full of restaurants and bars and that the nightlife is very animated. The most sensitive sleepyheads might be disturbed!
I had a great stay in this apartment. It has a great location very close to the Puerta del Sol and within walking distance of the Plaza Mayor, the Prado Museum, the Royal Palace, shopping areas, and many other sites in the historic center of Madrid. There are several Metro stations close by as well. There are many restaurants on the street and many more within several blocks. Also there are several corner stores close by with a larger market nearby on Calle Atocha. There is some noise from the street below, but as the apartment is on the 4th floor (5th floor to those in the US) it was not too loud, and Madrid in general is a noisy city so most places facing a street have some degree of street noise. The terrace is good sized. The bathroom is small, but the kitchen is a good size and well furnished with items to prepare your own meals. All in all, it was very comfortable.
