The apartment is lovely, and impeccably maintained. There is a master bedroom, a second bedroom with 3 single beds and a living room with sofa bed, in addition to a lovely kitchen & bathroom. But the really great thing is its location. It's on a pedestrian street right in the center of the city. Everything is walking distance from here. And despite being in a very busy area, the apartment was very quiet thanks to the high quality windows.
Well worth the price - just make sure to make note of the currency (when we booked it was listed in UK £, not Euros or US dollars)
Luke and Paola's apartment is terrific. Very comfortable and in a terrific location on a walking street approximately 50 feet from the Plaza del Sol, right in the thick of the tourist area of town.
We were in Madrid during a heat wave and the a/c kept us comfortable while sleeping or just when we needed to cool off for a moment.
Luke and Juan were very accommodating and worked with us on our arrival time to make settling in easier. There were restaurant suggestions on the chalkboard when we entered, but all you really need to do is walk around a bit and you'll probably find what you're looking for.
The apartment was great. Very comfortable. The apartment is very central. Walking distance to everything (plaza mayor, Mercado San Miguel, etc). The Sol metro station is basically next door!
Overall a great place to stay in Madrid!
This 3rd floor apartment is in a perfect location. It's a 2 minute walk to Puerto del Sol, and Sol Metro. We got the Metro from the airport to the Sol, which was a couple of changes, but a really easy journey lasting about 40 minutes. 5 minute walk in the opposite direction is the Playor Mayor, the market place and a 10 minute walk to Palacio Real - the location could not have been better for us. There were various bars and restaurants close by but worth walking that little bit extra for more options.
The apartment was spacious, bright, modern with all the mod cons (TV, Wifi, Washing machine, dishwasher, telephone). It was clean and even though we were in a central location, I hardly noticed any noise. There was a small outside space, which although we didn't use, was handy to hang up some washing. There was a deli below the apartment which was always busy with locals. We didn't need to stumble too far for breakfast.
The owner Luke was friendly and contactable before and during our trip and met us on the first day with the keys where he gave us a couple of recommendations. He suggested Korgui which we visited on our last night and the food was amazing.
We had only one issue during our visit and that was on the final night when the concierge knocked on the apartment door and I deciphered from his hand signals and my limited understanding of Spanish that the shower was leaking. This was slightly inconvenient but that was it.... Luke was made aware and we went out for dinner and forgot about it.
This was still a great flat, in a perfect location and I would not hesitate to recommend.
This flat was perfect for our trip to visit our daughter. The location is prime. It's close to fabulous shopping, literally steps away, and to metro stops which make it easy to branch out from Sol Plaza. And for it's metropolitan address, it is comfortably spacious. The living room let us spread out and watch tv, read, or work on the computer without being on top of each other.
Luke is a wonderful host- easily accessible, prompt to respond, and flexible.
It's a great place to stay!
My wife and I had a great experience at Luke's flat. It is steps away from the Puerta del Sol and very a short walk to many of the other sites in central Madrid such as the Palacio Real, Plaza Mayor, and Rastro market. While very close to the people and activity, once you enter the building, it's like a different world and a great escape from all the activity. The building has a doorman and always felt very safe. Luke's place is so much better than paying for a hotel - spacious, clean, and a great home base for seeing Madrid and beyond. The metro is right there in the Puerta del Sol providing easy access to the train stations for day trips outside of Madrid. We did day trips to Segovia and Toledo, which were amazing. I really can't say enough good things about Luke's place and how great it was for our week in Madrid. Aside from the place it itself, Luke communicates very well and was very flexible meeting us to check-in. I would definitely recommend Luke's flat to anyone travelling to Madrid.
Nice apartment very well located in the center of Madrid.
The apartment is conform to the description.
Th ehosts were very friendly and easy to communicate with.
Thanks Paola and Luke.
