"SmartRentals over a hotel anyday"
03/29/15 Margo K Philadelphia, Pennsylvania
I spent over 2 weeks in Spain traveling-most often in hotels. I must say that my experience with Madrid SmartRentals was a more enjoyable experience. It was a great value for my money, clean and in a great location. Stayed March 2015, traveled with friends
"Really great stay in this property !"

We had a wonderful break in Madrid and could not have asked for more from Smart Rentals We are 4 guys and we stayed in apt. 3a in the Santa Barbara building and it was better than we had hoped it would be. Spotless clean, modern, very well fitted out and very secure with loads of space. Location was a dream, 5 minute walk from the Plaza del sol which is the hub of everything. Could not recommend it enough. Two small issues, the wifi is patchy in the apt, and there is a loose step on the stairs that is a bit dangerous as it wobbles a bit. Overall, we would very happily stay here again.
"Excellent location and apartment!"

We stayed at the two-bedroom apartment near Fuencarral in September (group of 4 people). The apartment is very comfortabel, within walking distance to most tourist areas or transportation options. We had few problems during our stay (low wifi signal, leaking water in one of the bathrooms), but Maria and the staff were very helpful in solving the issues. I definitely reccomend staying there, but I strongly suggest having a mobile number activated for use in Spain should you need to contact Maria (we reached her by e-mail, but if had my phone number active it would have been easier - but that's on me).
"spacious and modern apartment in excellent location"

spacious apartment, very stylish and modern. Very clean! Big bed and a separate couch in the living room (sleeps another 2 if necessary). Perfect location, very central (might be too loud for some people, but I didn't mind. I rather enjoyed it). Staff at check-in very friendly and helpful (though it was his first day! Well done!). 4-level tapas fooudcourt next door is excellent. Only negative was, that the patio wasn't accessible due to a broken blind. Will definitely go back
"Great place to stay in Madrid!"

I had selected the Bario Las lettras apartment but they reassigned us to the Funecarral apartment and we were mad at first but were thrilled once we got there. It's a fabulous duplex apartment, clean and comfortable. It's has a happening tapas bar right next door. Close to the metro. Lots of different eating places and shopping places at walking distance. There is a pedestrian only shopping street close by which joins the Puerto del Sol.
Everything is good.. but there is little noise from the street ..the location is very good everything is near from the apartment everything is new and modern.... it's a comfortable and fantastic apartment ...

Ideally located, 10 min walk from Gran Via and an enjoyable walk to the Sol. We actually even walked it to the Palace from here. The apartment is quite functional and has all the basic amenities. Appliances in the kitchen include a coffee maker, a 3 burner stove, microwave oven, toaster, pots and pans and crockery, cutlery, glasses... Even Wine glasses. The fridge was a good size too. A small 6 seater dinning table. A sofa cum bed. 2 bathrooms with WC.... balconies and a small functional terrace with 2 chairs... WiFi (free) Yet.... something was missing. My aim is not to pull the guys down... rather to request them to get their act together and fix the missing links. 1. More towels (we had 4 towels for 5 people) and a change for bed linen. 2. More ice trays in the freezer 3. More garbage bags. (1 is not enough for a 3 nights stay) with tape to tie it up. 4. A functional TV. .. The one they have there shows no channels. 5. More toiletries for the bathrooms. Can't remember more because it was a month ago.... If they fix these little things, I am sure with the location and apartment size... They would easily get 4.5/5. And yes these apartments are on 2 levels and can accommodate 4 adults and 2 kids.... One bedroom is rather small with a pullout bed. The other one is fairly decent. 2 adults can be accommodated on the sofa cum bed in the living room.
"Excellent stay, good location"

Apartment is really well presented and furnished, in a great location, most attractions are within walking distance, approx 30 min. Only issue with being cenrtrally located in a 24 hour city is the noise level when you eventually do go to bed, apartments would have been truelly 5 star if they had some better sound proofing. But overall still an excellent apartment in a good location. Maria the rep for the apartment was also great, and provided a map of the city, very friendly.

A good location to discover Madrid, in a vivid area. The apartment was what we expected. Clean and spacious. We stayed begin april 2014 and were confronted with a daily wake up call at 8u30 by the workers who are finishing the building. Another weak point is the internet speed especially when you'retravelling with youngsters. But overall very good. A stay which I would recommend.
"How smart is renting an appartment in Madrid"
04/05/14 Computerboer Kapelle, The Netherlands
It was a bit of an ambivalent experience. The appartment was absolutely ok, beside the fact that the bathroom and the shower were a bit narrow, but just ok. The first 24 hours we had no heating in the appartment. We warned right after arrival by phone, heating not working, it should heat up in a couple of hours, after another couple of hours it was still cold. So go to bed and next morning phone again and yes a 3 men strong maintenance crew appeared and had the heating repared in as little as an hour. The rest of our stay was perfect, with enough warmth in the appartment. During the saturdaynight it was a bit noisy, but on the other hand we were in the middle of Madrid and that was good fun. You have to consider chosing an appartment or a hotel room! With only two a Hotel room is cheaper, this appartment could fit four people and then it is cheap!!
