We stayed only one night in this place. The hostel staff had forgotten the car parking reservation, in spite of that we insisted about it in our emails, several months in advance. The receptionist failed to provide a solution. We had to figure it out.
The apartment (2 bedrooms, 4 beds) was very large and quiet, with clean sheets and beds. But it was also quite dark, with a poorly equipped, tiny, permanently moist, slightly smelly bathroom and bad ventilation... there was some unexplicable smoke smell in one of the rooms too. (There were no windows nor ventilation ducts). Plus, the decoration was very ugly compared to other places I've stayed in Madrid for the same price range. Mirrors, doors, carpets, TV's... they all seemed very old and worn out.
Something very annoying was the lack of useful amenities in the kitchen ... there was a water heater with a British plug but no electrical adaptor! (thus completely useless) ; very few utensils and old, very bad quality kitchenware
We had a reservation for a few days later te but we had to cancel. We really needed a parking space... We had chosen the place for the location. Turned out to be a mistake..
