My son and I spent a wonderful week in Madrid, and the flat in Sol was a great base. The property is just as the pictures indicate - modern, clean, and quite comfortable. We were only two, but as many as 5 or 6 would be more than comfortable. Despite the central location, there is plenty of quiet - the bedrooms are interior, and we had great sleep on the memory foam matresses - better than at home!
The property is literally 150 meters from Sol and the metro, and other attractions such as the Palace, Opera, Plaza Mayor and La Latina are within a 10 minute walk. 15 minutes by foot has you at the Prado or Thyssen Borne.
As much as the property has to recommend, host Luke made the experience painless. He was very prompt and attentive form our pre-visit communication via WhatsApp to the seamless check-in process and touching base during our visit. He even provide a Wi-Fi hotspot for use during our visit for a very reasonable charge.
I am recommending Luke and this property to all friends and family, and will be staying again during my next visit to Madrid.
For me this apartment ticks all the boxes. Great access to all of Madrid´s downtown charms for food, drinks, entertainment and the sites. Luke the host is very responsive to enquiries and great at sorting out any problems I have had with arrival times, booking issues and for general advice on how to enjoy the city. You really can´t go wrong in this apartment.
We enjoyed our stay in Luke’s very clean apartment. He met us, and kindly let us leave our luggage as we were early. The apartment is in a great location facing a busy pedestrian street with shops, restaurants, etc. It was, however, very quiet, one was not aware of the outdoor noise. It is even larger than indicated by the pictures, and equipped nicely. The elevator and doorman were nice touches. We highly recommend this apartment.
Luke's place was great.The location was the prime factor.There's lot happening around his place as you are literately living in the middle of Madrid city. Vibrant atmosphere, local street artists, great food, shopping areas, good connectivity for metro, city tours and taxi's.All these facilities at our door step made our stay at Madrid a comfortable one.
It's a great place for both couples and families with kids to stay as there is something for every one.Luke also left few interesting books and games to keep kids busy.And because of the flats central location we could visit a lot of places and hence had a great trip.
The house was clean,comfy and quite.It had all the amenities mentioned by Luke in his advertised page. We got a good and stable Internet connection, well equipped kitchen, comfortable lounge and dining facilities and comfy beds.When we reached Luke provided us with information about the locality and gave us various pointer about the citywhich allowed us to plan our trip priorities accordingly.
To conclude,we had a memorable holiday and loved the lively City of Madrid. Thanks again to Luke for his help and guidance.
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!
