We stayed six adults in a superior apartment on the third floor in October 2011. The furniture was simple but generally functional and okay. There are 3 living rooms. In the entrance room was a sofa bed. The room next to the street was with to single beds and in the third room was a double bed with very soft madras. The living rooms are connected through a long corridor with a very well equipped kitchen and a modest bathroom.
Unfortunately the internet (Wi-Fi) didn’t work in our department. The staff is very helpful and speaks good English but they couldn’t restore the missing internet during our 4 days stay.
The location is outstanding right in the middle of Madrid on a pedestrian street next to Puerta del Sol. With that location you must expect a lot of noise from people on the street. There was also some noise from activity on the staircase.
Our department was well cleaned. Be aware there is no elevator, no daily cleaning and check-in or check-out outside the receptions opening times costs 40 euro.
If you are traveling on a low budget, focus on a great location, don’t need luxury and can tolerate some noise these apartments are worth considering and recommendable.
