This aparthotel is located close to the Chamartin and Salamanca areas of Madrid. It's conveniently sited about 5 minutes walk from the Prosperidad Metro Stop on Line 4. You can access the town centre (Sol) from there in about 25 minutes. We are a mature couple and on our 5th visit to Madrid, a city we like very much. The apartment was a single-bedroom and adequately furnished and comfortable, with a sofa, coffee table and chairs in the lounge/kitchen. The kitchen area had a flat surface usable for sitting down to eat if you wished. It was quite adequate for our three day stay midweek. The staff were friendly in reception and throughout our visit. The weather was hot during our visit (35°C) and the A/C coped fine. We catered for ourselves/ate out so didn't try the breakfast option. The free wifi worked fine. It was very easy to find a bar for drinks and tapas or a reasonably priced restaurant (prices about €10 for a two course menu with drinks). Madrid is a really great place to visit and is often cheaper than many other Spanish cities; there are many things to see from the major museums to chilling out downtown. We had a great time there and this time visited Faunia, the Dali temporary exhibition in the Reine Sofia and the Sorolla closer to the apartment. All worth a visit. For a meal out, since we live in France, we were curry starved and if you like that dish try the area of Lavapiés where there are several (note, it's in another part of town). We ate at the Shapla Indian Restaurant in Calle Lavapiés, 42, we had a great meal. As a parenthesis, we visited the Los Caidos civil war memorial afterwards. It's about 30-40 minutes drive North from Madrid and we would strongly recommend a visit to this greatly moving site.
The aparthotel is in a busy part of town where parking could be problematic. As in many places in Madrid and Spain in general, parking is extremely expensive and we recommend that you take their parking option; this was somewhat expensive but worth the expenditure at €16.50 a day (half or less compared to a public car park). The person at reception parked the car and recovered it when necessary. Kitchenware was a bit minimal. The only other thing that bothered us was the fridge which was old and very noisy.
We recommend this hotel for its convenient location, friendly staff and service and good value for money.
