"Cozy and comfy"
I'm uncertain how many rooms are for rent but we were in a one bedroom corner apartment on the road. It was sweet and cozy, and while it wasn't what we expected (because it wasn't a hotel) we got used to it soon. The bed was comfy but pillows are flat. The shower is absolutely amazing but fills quickly. The living area has a fridge, table and couch, with a tv, but few outlets. Would have liked an extra set of towels but we would stay again for sure. Wifi worked generally well.

"Great apartment near the city centre"
Really lovely apartment about 10-15 minutes walk from central Plaza Mayor and the Sol. Tirso de Molina underground station is 1 minute walk. Quite a few boutiques and restaurants around, with the street of Calle de las Huertas, full of jazz clubs and great bars is just around the corner. The apartment was fully equipped, fridge, hob, kettle, microwave, toaster, TV, iron, hair dryer etc. Nice comfy bed, and thanks to the fact it was facing out of the street we did not have a window with a view (just a window opening into a some sort of a skylight/air shaft) - but the room was dead quiet during the night! The only downside was the Tirso de Molina square itself - there was quite a few beggars and/or homeless people, sometimes dirty, stinking etc. - but that's obviously not a fault of the hotel! :-) We would definitely stay in the apartment again, and can only recommend it.

"Nice apartment"
This apartment was in a good location for visiting the main sights although the area is a bit scruffy as it is in the Latin quarter, so the buildings are very old and the streets narrow, but we did feel safe walking around at night. There are plenty of bars and shops nearby. The one bedroom apartment was quite small for three people but was adequate for our needs.

"comfortable apartment in great location"
We booked the 3 person apartment which has balcony doors in living room and bedroom. The apartment is ideally located within walking distance to most sights and museums. There are lots of bars and restaurants nearby. The kitchen is well equipped, it has a good wifi signal and a great shower. We had a great stay at Apartamentos Duque de Alba and would definitely stay here again - not just because of the fantastic shower!!!

"Lovely flat in a great location"
This apartment was in an ideal location, just a few minutes walk from a metro stop, and not much further to one of the main squares. The flat was spotless and thoughtfully kitted out with everything we needed. It was just the right size and wifi and air conditioning were both helpful. I'd recommend if you're looking for an easy self-catering option in a handy location and will definitely look to rebook when we visit my friend again.

"Good place, scary location"
We stayed at the apartment-hotel for 3 days and the first impressions of the location will put you off if you are looking for anything beyond a budget accommodation. We were expecting a nice, friendly quite neighborhood but this place is bang in the middle of the wholesale market with all kinds activities going on the streets. Finding the place will be very tough as there are no signages at all, taxis will drop you on the road and you will have to drag your luggage and find this place ( needle in haystack). Once you enter the apartment, you will appreciate the facilities, the up gradations and the setup. The rooms though small ( as compared to other cities in Spain) are adequately furnished and the check in staff ( you have to call them ahead ) is friendly and professional. Public transport is walking distance but very scary to walk out in the night given the surrounding neighborhood. Avoid if you want a nice sleep in the night as the streets are cleaned by city staff after midnight and the it can be little noisy if you are not used to it.

"Great location, comfortable stay"
We stayed at the apartment after searching for a place that's central but comfortable and reasonably priced. This place ticks all the boxes. It's located about 10 minutes walk to Puerta de Sol and was bang in the middle so you can walk to the Palacio Real and the attractions on the east side of the city easily. We were greeted warmly and showed around by a nice man who met us at the apartment 15minutes earlier than the meeting time, which was nice. You need to call them before hand to arrange a time, as there are no e-mails/correspondence by the providers prior to your stay. The rooms were clean and nice and appeared new, the kitchen is fully equipped. Our only criticism is that the shower head receiver is a bit wobbly and could do with a bit of mending. We kept worrying it would fall on our heads! There's also no bin in the bathroom. We slept reasonably OK, however it was really quite noisy on weekend nights from people shouting in the streets and music from nearby clubs. The area is a bit dodgy, you need to be careful about hanging around the nearby plaza as some of the beggars were quite aggressive in their approach. There's a nice nearby restaurant serving reasonably priced food. There's LIDL at the plaza where you can get groceries. WIFI can be accessed from the room, which was great. The signal can get quite patchy, sometimes we need to use our smartphone at the stairways to get better reception.

Virkelig god beliggende lejlighed med udsigt fra balkon til Plaza de Molina for enden af vejen. Hyggeligt kvarter og torv. alt andet vi besøgte var i gåafstand, langt det meste under 15 mins gang væk. Selve lejligheden meget fin til prisen. Nyrenoveret med Ikeamøblement. Rigtig god madras og ingen støj om natten gav god nattesøvn. Lidt ustabilt internet. Lejligheden giver alt i alt det bedste og prisvenlige udgangspunkt for en god ferie i den dejlige by.

The apartment was exactly what we were looking for. It was very clean, well located and perfectly sized for two people using it as a base for a long weekend in Madrid. David (who managed the apartments) arrived on time to handover the keys and was extremely friendly and helpful.

이번 첫 스페인 가족여행에서 가장 힘들게한호텔.. 위치는 나쁘지 않았으나 와이파이자 되지않아 여행일정상 어려움이많았음. 여러차례 전화했지만 전화통화도 어려웠고 대응은 전혀없었음. 밤에는 시끄럽고 집이 좁음.

"추천합니다!!!!"
여행 마지막 코스로 간 마드리드. 호텔인줄 알고 저녁에 도착해서 찾는다고 엄청 고생했습니다. 아파트형 숙소는 처음인지라 많이 당황했었네요... 비오는 추운 겨울날에 같은 길만 2시간 동안 무한정 반복..지금 생각해도 아찔합니다. 하지만 스페인의 좋은 분들 덕분에 무사히 도착해서 지낼수있었구요, 조리기구가 다 구비 되어있어 편하게 야식도 해먹을 수 있었습니다. 그리고 주변에 유명관광지가 있어 저흰 걸어서 돌아봤네요. 여기서 팁을 하나 드리자면 아파트형 숙소이므로 반드시 가기전에 매니저와 연락을 취할 것을 추천합니다. 아님 우리처럼 같은길 2시간동안 무한반복하게 됩니다ㅠㅠ 마지막으로 정말 그날 같이 비맞으면서 숙소 찾는데 도움을 주신 모든 분들께 정말 감사하다는 말을 드리고 싶습니다/!!!

Departamentos bien ubicados, algo difícil de encontrar ya que no tiene letrero de identificación , es sólo una puerta en un pasaje, y hay que llamar antes para que te entreguen la habitación, cosa que en nuestro casó demoro casi dos horas de espera en la puerta de el edificio, falta servicio de cuchillería, pero en general bien, la srta que entrega las llaves muy amable.

"Muy nuevo y en perfecto estado"
A pesar de que la plaza Tirso de Molina no es lo más glamouroso de Madrid este apartamento está situado en una posición estratégica para visitar el centro de la ciudad. No hay que perderse Lavapies para ver el otro Madrid. Cerca hay supermercados para comprar (mejor el Carrefour de Lavapies) y todo tipo de facilidades. El apartamento es una cucada, nuevo y en perfecto estado. Fue todo un acierto escogerlo.

"Value for money if you need 2 rooms and cooking facilities"
05/12/15 khenaro Moscow, Russia
PROs Location is super. A/c and heater worked well, wifi worked perfectly, kitchen facilities were clean, as well as bathtoom. No problems with hot water and water pressure in the shower that is very important if you have long hairs. Calm except 1 Friday night-windows to the yard. Safe. Late check-in went smoothly-we've called upon arrival to the airport and were waited when arrived to the apartments. CONTRAs The flat is wet as has no windows to the street-2 small ones to the yard. There were many cracks on the walls. The sofa is actually not intended for sleeping-very uncomfortable, don't consider it's usage.

"Nice, but can get noisy at night"
07/01/14 CudakLewek Warsaw, Poland
We spent a week at the apartment which is located just by the Tirso de Molina Square and Metro station. The place is easy to reach and close to the basic supplies (with a great cafe and meat store just round the corner), offering the opportunity to explore most of Madrid's attractions on foot. It has good amenities, although it is on the small side. Nevertheless, the place offered what it promised in the ad. Be wary, though, that the location is by the entrance to a multicultural part of the city which can get loud at night, so open windows is not an option you want to consider. Luckily, the AC worked just fine. The kitchen is well equipped and the fridge is the right size. The only flaws included an uncomfortable mattress and insufficient toilet paper supplies to last for a week;) Altogether, this was a pleasant stay and I would recommend the place to visitors.

Just spent a brilliant few days in Madrid - the apartment was off the main plaza right by tirso de molina metro station - simple commute from the airport! Great value for money... Loads of Madrid sights within walking distance (we walked everywhere....plaza mayor, mercado de San Miguel, palacio, parque del retiro...etc). The shower was AMAZING...plenty of equipment, the only thing we were missing was a toaster - but cannot fault the facilities - very clean with enough towels, toilet roll, hair dryer, pots, pans etc... The guy who came to meet us to let us in was great - gave us map and pointed out lots of places to visit... E.g. La Latina for tapas. The apartment faced inwards which ensure it remained cool...we found that there was no need to turn on the air con. Definitely would stay again!

"Great Stay!"
09/23/13 GringoEnMiami Miami, FL
I stayed at this apartment for a few nights. Everything went perfect. Right when I arrived to the apartment I had a nice girl Cristina meet me. The apartment does not have any signs but this place is simple to reach. As soon as you get out of the Tirsa de Molina metro you will have Calle Espada right in front of you. You go down only one block and at Calle Juanelo is the apartment. If you see the photos you can see the wooden door of the place. It is very easy to find when you know what you are looking for. The apartment had everything you can need including a coffee maker, toaster, oven , microwave, cable tv, pots and pans. The bed was comfortable. At least when I was there it was relatively quiet. I was never awoken at night. The A/C worked fine. I had no problem with the shower but it is small. Someone else may complain about this but I didn't have any issue.

Appartment was good, with more equipment than advertised. (Iron, coffee pot, hairdryer etc.) Expected it to be nosier than it was. Two minutes to the metro, Ten minutes to Plaza Mayor or Sol. Service needs a little improvement, as arrangements for pick up of keys was not great, nor was the expected towel change. But i would stay there again. Would advise calling to agree key pick up time. Felt safe walking around area as there were people around until late.

03/31/13 nothingtoulouse toulouse
I totally disagree with the harsh French review...and find it a bit sad that this person found it really difficult to wait for someone to arrive with a key. The lady was bang on time, took.the balance payment quickly and told us we could leave keys in the apartment on check out day...no difficulties at all. We had a one bed appartment on first floor, two big windows, plenty of light. Not much more expensive to have a larger appartment and we appreciated the separate living room. Clean, bright, modern, comfy bed, fantastic shower. Free wifi. The closest streets have few cars, ...if you are a light sleeper bring earplugs...but no major issues with traffic or people..the nearest bars are up on the square and no loud music heard. The area is not as chic as up around Gran Via and Sol..but its fine... There is a nice coffee shop for breakfast...left out of door then first right. Good price. There is a Lidl for food shopping next to metro. We ate at Tapas del Mundo at other end of square. To be honest, tapas and a beer or glass of wine not expensive generally. A good choice! Good location for walking to main sights,Plaza Mayor 15 mns,Prado 20 mns.

"A ver nice apartment in an excellent location"
09/28/12 cosmogeoman Bern, Switzerland
After seeing that this hotel has considrable less reviews than in other websites I decided to give it a boost. These apartments are really nice and clean, the bathroom shower is very cool with water massage, lights, a mirror and even radio! The apartment also has a full kitchenetter, a microwave, a medium-sized fridge, and a good internet connection. The location of the hotel is excellent, being only 2 minutes away from Tirso di Molen metro station and a 10 minute walk to Puerta del Sol, not to mention the proximity to many excellent restaurants which I'll be reviewting (and praising) as well. Cons: 1) Not easy to find at first because the hotel has no sign! but the staff are friendly and expect someone to be waiting for you to hand you the keys so not a big problem. 2) The apartment is not really soundproof, as you get the street noise and the music from nearby stores as well as the neigbors. This could be an issue to some people. 3) The towels were changed only once during our 1 week stay, but i guess if we had told them before that we want them changed more frequently they would have done it.

"Квартира в центре Мадрида."
06/25/15 Инесса Н
Очень удобно расположен- 100м от метро Тирсо де Молина. До Сол, Майор, Прадо и королевского дворца пешком без проблем и даже удобнее, чем на транспорте. Квартирка небольшая, но все есть- спальня (кровати не ахти) с французским балкончиком и шкафом. Гостинная отделена от спальни недо-стеной... не до потолка, но с дверью. Эта комната без окна, поэтому темновато. На кухне набор посуды, чайник- мы немного пользовались для завтраков. Кондиционер на обогрев и охлаждение. ТВ только на испанском.Санузел стандартный. Все очень чистенько и лаконично. Заселили в 1 мин. Молодой человек встречал нас у входа точно в назначенное время. Просили продлить день отъезда до 12-00 ( здесь отъезд в 10-00). Для этого я звонила в офис, разрешили без проблем. НО НЕ ДОЛЬШЕ. Резюме: уверена, что могла бы найти вариант лучше за эти же деньги, но так как ехали с подругой, остановились на первом же приемлемом для обеих варианте.
