I ended up staying here as it was on my company's list of approved hotels. I really wish it wasn't.
The apartment itself is quite spacious, and the staff were very helpful and friendly, but that's about where the plus points stop.
The rooms smelled of smoke, the kitchen was far too small (in a cupboard), the sofa really uncomfortable, and everything, from the walls, to the carpet, to the furnishings was the same shade of beige... very strange choice... there had been an attempt to paint the furniture in the living room the same shade of beige, but it was peeling off and very very ugly.
There was mould in the bathroom, around the bath. The air-con was so noisy that I just turned it off as I couldn't sleep, but then froze as it was so cold (it was winter).
I choose to stay in aparthotels as they are like a home away from home, and as I travel a lot for work, this is important for me. This place felt like dirty cheap hotel.
I moved out and into a proper aparthotel as soon as I could. If you are going to a football match at the Bernabeu, then this place would probably be fine - it is fairly well located for that area. Otherwise, I would avoid it.
