"Fine, but wouldn't stay there again"
This hotel has no lobby, so you have to schedule a time to meet with the person who is going to give you keys. I was not told that they would be late, and I ended up waiting on a street corner for an hour for someone to show up. This made me very uncomfortable and ended up putting a bit of a damper on my stay in Madrid. Aside from that, the room was in fine condition, but there were better places to stay. Note, there is a washer but no dryer.

"False Advertising and Abysmal Customer Service"
They imply they have a reception by saying they have a multilingual staff and help with tours. There is NO reception or help with tours. After you book they send you a threatening letter about being on time or you will have to wait till they get around to coming back. Then they were late to the check in themselves! Plus they put us on the 5th floor of a building which has no elevator(lift) after I told them I have a broken ankle! The room does not look like any of their photos at all and there is almost NO wifi. It works about 10% of the time and is slower than dialup. The shower has a 13 inch opening! You can barely turn around it it. They said it had a spa tub! Liars. It has such a low ceiling and beams that my husband kept hitting his head on the them. It said it has a balcony. Even on the description they sent me. NO it has no balcony. We had no car, but if we did, there's no parking allowed by the hotel. It's a 10 minute walk all uphill to the apts. OMG if you have luggage! Do not stay here if you want a good Madrid experience!!!

"This company treated us right!!!"
The AC in the Camino del Prado apartment was needing service so we were upgraded to an apartment at Apartamente del Palacio Real - same company. We were treated beautifully. The apartment had everything we needed and if anything wasn't perfect, the representatives of the company replaced or fixed immediately. The apartment was spotless and while it didn't have street facing windows, it was still charming. My husband and I saved a huge amount of money on food and were able to enjoy picking up fresh fruits, vegetables, meats and cheeses in the mercado just around the corner. There were many, many places to get tapas and/or a glass of wine or cerveza. The noise level was just fine and we got good rest. There were fiestas very near and we participated when we wanted and slept when we needed. The lift was wonderful, the laundry available for free, the AC strong. Neighborhood was very, very safe. We often walked as late as 2 a.m. or more. It was also near the La Latina metro for longer trips and we just walked everywhere for shorter distances. Beautiful stay! Great company! Cannot recommend it highly enough!!

"great place!"
About a 7 minute walk from the Sol metro station, and within walking distance to the Museo del Prado. This is a studio apartment that you're renting out, complete with AC, washer, kitchen, dining table, and sofa. Small, but decent bathroom. No soaps/shampoo so you will have to bring your own, but we were very comfortable staying here for the 2 nights. It can get noisy at night, but nightlife in Madrid is pretty normal. Would stay here again.

The place was amazing and having your own kitchen to cook in was amazing and saved a ton of money. But the room was not cleaned that well since the last person was there. But one call to the manager and it was very well cleaned the next day.

In general the location in terms of how far it is from main sights, museums, the city center is quiet good. But the room was really small, and there was something with hot water: in 15 minutes you've started taking shower the hot water disapeared and I had to wait when it became hot again. And the neighborhood so to say didn't seem safe.

This facility is not a hotel in the normal sense. The building is not in a great part of town but is within walking distance of local sites and metro stations. Hotel management is not on site but met us with they key on time. Biggest problem was the extreme noise from the street below.

"No Reception"
No reception desk at apartment and need to make appointment before arrival. This is an apartment, hence, no normal hotel service such as cleaning room and making beds. Apartment has no lift, and can be challenging if carrying too much luggage and staying on higher levels. There are a few bars nearby, hence, noisy on Saturday night till wee morning.

"Cute and Cosy apartment"
Note this review is for Apartment 4. This apartment was great and absolutely suited our needs. It was clean, well set out with all the amenities we required, including a washing machine and cooktop. The apartment is located in an ok area not far from the metro station. There is a fabulous supermarket located about 400m down the street and plenty of restaurants close by. We really enjoyed our stay here and were very happy with the apartment and location. There are a couple of things that I would like to point out that could be an issue for others. Apartment 4 is located on the 4th floor and there is no lift. If you have suitcases it could be a struggle. If you're unfit/not able to climb too many stairs, this apartment is not for you, try one on the lower levels. The other thing to note is the roofline is angled with exposed beams, which at points are quite low. I'm 5"10 and the beams were at my head height in some places. One last point to note is the size of the shower and the height of the roof over the shower. It was rather small and a tight squeeze to get in to and I am by no means large. These are by no means criticisms of this apartment as we loved it and it's charm, however I'd hate for someone to find these things out upon arrival and for it to be a problem. I would highly recommend staying in this apartment if you are looking for a self contained apartment.

"Cheap but not for the light sleeper"
In short - the bad 1) Hot water only lasts 5 min - don't expect 2 people to have consecutive showers 2) The noise overnight is unbearable. You cannot sleep at all. 3) No reception therefore you need to go elsewhere to leave your bags if you arrive early. 4) Not well insulated so we had the heating on 24/7 essentially The good 1) Right near a big supermarket 2) All activities within walking distance 3) Cheap if you can handle not sleeping 4) Close to the main station

"Nice hotel, not so good location"
The hotel is close to public transport and a supermarket. However, in front of it there are some business open until around midnight (during weekdays), attracting a lot of noisy customers. If you are looking for a really quiet place, this might not be the best for you. However, the room is really good, the only problem is the fact that my room was located in the third floor and there is no elevator, so we had to carry the luggage up and down the stairs. The staff though is friendly and helpful

"céntrico pero sucio y mal atendidos"
La colcha estaba muy sucia, se notaba que estaba usada, MUY usada. Se lo dijimos al responsable de las llaves y lo único que hizo fue decirnos que las sábanas estaban limpias y que las colchas se lavaban muy a menudo. Además faltaba una bombilla de la lampara de la habitación y una bombilla del baño estaba fundida. No funcionaba bien la calefacción, no había nada más que una manta (la que estaba puesta en la cama) y pasámos mucho frío. Habíamos contratado el alojamiento para dos noches y estabamos tan incómodos que solo estuvimos una. En resumen, alojamiento nada recomendable.

No es un Hotel, es una planta baja dúplex en pleno centro de Madrid. La ubicación es buenísima, fuimos a pie a todos lados y todo estaba relativamente cerca, al ser centro hay un poco de ruido pero se descansaba muy bien, no molestaba a penas. Todo muy limpio y el trato muy bueno. El único inconveniente es si vas en coche puesto que es zona centro y no se puede aparcar más de 1h con lo cual tienes que dejarlo en un parking y son 27€ por día. Lo ideal es ir en tren ya que ATOCHA esta al lado, se puede llegar andando en menos de 15 minutos y así te evitas el parking. RECOMIENDO LA ESTANCIA

"Pleasantly surprised"
12/06/15 Bratcliffe Palma de Mallorca, Spain
I booked this apartment through booking.com, feeling happy with my decision as it was a good price and close to the centre. I then made the mistake of going on to tripadvisor and reading the comments. Nearly all of the reviews were bad so we were expecting the worst. But when we got to the hotel the man with the keys was perfectly on time and very pleasant. We got into the room and I breathed a sigh of relief as it was exactly as shown on the pictures. Very clean and tidy and great for a three night stay. I don't want to show it as something it's not- the area to some people may seem noisy, but certainly not dangerous- we are two 20 year olds and weren't approached by anybody at any time. I would recommend these apartments as other people have slayed them, and give it a try. They are very good for the price. Would go back as seen as it is a 10 minute walk from the centre and close to a big supermarket.

"Decent stay for a good price!"
09/21/15 solstromx Toronto, Canada
I booked this hotel through Hotwire which meant I didn't know what I booked until after the transaction! Then I proceeded to read all the reviews on tripadvisor and swore I would never book through opaque travel sites again! When we arrived we were pleasantly surprised. Yes there is no concierge and you have to book a time to meet with someone to give you the keys. The exchange was pleasant and on-time. Once we saw the room we breathed a sigh of relief. The room was bright, spacious and clean! It has a stove, microwave, washer and all kitchen utensils. This is definitely not a 4-star accommodation but once you get over that, it is not bad at all. This place is situated in an immigrant neighbourhood which to some may be "sketchy" but I found it lively and vibrant. This also meant there are much more food choices besides tapas like Indian food. There is a popular bar right across the street and it could get loud but we travel with ear plugs so it was not a huge issue.

"Out of the way"
07/31/15 David K Cincinnati, Ohio
I booked this property through an opaque travel site, which indicated the neighborhood and the price, but withheld the name and location until I prepaid the reservation. This apartment met my needs for a two night, solo stay in Madrid, but I would have chosen something else if booking directly. I know Madrid very well and am comfortable moving around the city. Therefore, the out-of-the-way location did not adversely affect my stay. It was a short taxi ride from the Atocha rail station, and the a staff member met me at the arranged time to let me into the room. There is no reception at this location, so any service needs must be communicated by phone or e-mail. My requests were attended to correctly, but since there were no employees on site, it took a while to get someone to unlock the door when I had absent mindedly left without the key. Visitors to Madrid might be interested in a more monumental neighborhood than the gritty Lavapiés area. The streets are narrow, and there is nearly constant movement. Some guests might enjoy the contact with local residents; others, as indicated in previous reviews, find such interaction uncomfortable. In either case, the apartment is close to the key sights, on foot or by Metro. The apartment itself was a one-room studio, on the third floor of the building. Be aware that there is no elevator, and I found it challenging to drag my luggage up and down the stairs. Otherwise, the apartment was well equipped, and its furnishings impressed a local friend who dropped in for a brief visit. The kitchenette would allow the preparation of simple meals, and the air conditioning worked very well on one of the hottest weekends of the summer. In summary, these apartments would be best for travelers who know their way around Madrid, can manage their stay independently, and can deal with a location off the beaten path.

"DON’T DO IT! False Advertisement and dangerous neighborhood."
06/22/15 Carlos O Leiden, The Netherlands
DON’T DO IT! False Advertisement and dangerous neighborhood. This place is a rip-off. Service is nonexistent, the neighborhood is dangerous. Do not waste your time or money. We used Hotwire to book a hotel in center Madrid. We had the misfortune to be assigned to this bad attempt of hotel. Not to mention it is not a hotel as it was advertised by Hotwire. It is a lousy building with rooms in a terrible part of town. No one’s thee to receive you. They will not refund our money…. Of course, criminals don’t do so. It is a tourist trap so avoided for your own good. Now my 200 words for this to be accepted: Do not stay here, do not stay here, do not stay here, do not stay here, do not stay here, Do not stay here, do not stay here, do not stay here, do not stay here, do not stay here, Do not stay here, do not stay here, do not stay here, do not stay here, do not stay here, Do not stay here, do not stay here, do not stay here, do not stay here, do not stay here, Do not stay here, do not stay here, do not stay here, do not stay here, do not stay here.

They said it had a balcony. It has NO BALCONY. False advertising. I told them I have a broken ankle yet they put us on the 5th floor with no lift. The apartment looks NOTHING like any of the pictures! The wifi is almost nonexistent and is slower than dialup the 10% of the time that it works. There is no spa tub, and the shower is tiny with a 13 inch opening! Plus the beams are so low my husband hurt his head several times. After we paid in advance they threatened us not to be late or we would just have to wait on their convenience yet they were late! There is no reception at all nor any help with tours and only one person speaks English and was not available to help us. Terrible experience. Be warned!!!!!

"Superb stay"
10/29/14 Cameron L London, United Kingdom
The apartment's are modern and are in an excellent location. The metro station is a four minute walk away and from there you can get almost anywhere in Madrid. We stayed on a ground apartment so had an upstairs and a basement. As you walk in there's a lounge area and a kitchen with a kettle and fridge. The lounge area has a nice sofa/sofa bed and a flat screen TV with Spanish, German and world news channels.There is a stylish spiral staircase leading to the basement which has a double bed, wardrobes, bathroom and a large jacuzzi., which is fantastic after a solid day of walking. The AC also works splendidly. On first glance the neighbourhood may seem a bit rough, but in truth its harmless,I'm sure that there's a drug gang who deal at the bottom of the road, but they really cause no issues at all and are comfortable with tourists. If anything, it adds more excitement and realism to your stay. There's a bar across the road which can get very loud, so I'd bring earplugs or something similar. The bin men come very early, about 3:30-4:30 am daily, they make an insane amount of noise also. There's also a small shop directly opposite the apartments which is useful for emergancies and a larger supermarket about three minutes away which sells food and drink. But in whole these apartments were excellent and a very reasonable price. It's facilities and location are ideal as well as the true perspective of Madrid that it gives as you step out your front door into the narrow streets of the barrio area. I would highly reccomend.

"Madrid Alive and Partying!"
09/25/14 Nancy O Seattle, Washington, United States
Nice location, close to several metro stations and easy access to Atoche Renfe train station. Grocery store and restaurants literally less than a minute’s walk. The apartment was very clean, communication with the host prior to our arrival was excellent. Hot water and water pressure in the shower were excellent but the shower is tiny, slightly over 2’ wide. Very nice electric kettle for heating hot water for tea/coffee. Dishwashing soap and a sponge provided but no soap/shampoo. We stayed at Calle Olivar 25 in apt 2. Bed was fine. Wifi worked well. The only real issue is it’s really noisy and not just when the bars/restaurants close. On Friday night the partying went on until 5:30 Saturday morning. We were there Thursday through Saturday nights so maybe we just got lucky.

"Excellent room and location...a little lively in the early hours."
07/03/14 Robert L London, United Kingdom
Firstly this in an apartment not a hotel, you are renting the accommodation but there are no hotel facilities such as reception or baggage store. We rented the duplex apartment which you enter from a front door at street level, on arrival an agent is waiting for you outside with your key. You walk straight in to the lounge/ kitchen/ diner which has excellent facilities (fridge freezer/microwave/kettle/electric hob/large flat screen TV/ sofa bed). A spiral staircase leads down to the basement where there is a double bed and double Jacuzzi bath. There is also a separate bathroom with shower. The AC is upstairs but was very good so no problem keeping you cool in the night. The apartment is located in the 'barrio' area which is a maze of narrow lanes. You can pretty much walk anywhere on the tourist trail within 15-20 minutes. Lavapies Metro Station is 5 minutes down the hill. The locals can seem a bit intimidating at first, there is definitely some drug dealing going on down near the station, but nobody bothers or hassles you and after a few nights you don't even notice them. Overall I really liked the place, especially opening the front door and walking straight onto the narrow streets of the barrio. There is a mini-market directly opposite and a Carrefour supermarket down near the station. The only downside was the bar over the road which can get very noisy and boisterous late at night, and the bin men who seem to come every night at about 4am. Earplugs are a must if you are a light sleeper, or just get drunk like the locals and sleep right through it all. You need to be out of the room by 11:00 and you must leave it clean and tidy or you will incur a cleaning fee, If you have a late flight you can drop your bags at Atocha Renefe Station which has a Consignes. A large locker for the day is about 5 Euros and the bus goes from here directly to the Airport for another 5 Euros. I would definitely rent this apartment again.

"The Apartments are nice studios but the neigborhood is bad!"
12/16/12 HBE11 SFO
I stayed here on my vacation recently Nov. 26th -Dec. 2nd 2012 and the apartments are nice but the neighborhood is bad. There are people in the streets all day and all night, fighting screaming and cussing. I wrote a review about it to booking.com but the review did not turn up at the site. My first night was met by a crazy grandmother who had a melt down because she smelled marijuana from the street-Bad neighborhood. The next occupants were a elderly mother and father with grown kids who actually harrassed me for two nights before thy were kicked out by the management. I went to the management twice the first time they asked me if I wanted to move but I had planned my vacation near that area and I said no as long as the problem people were leaving. My mistake because it did not change. I asked to be compensated for my inconvenience and the lady told me emphatically that I would not be getting any money back and that I should have moved-inconvenient to me but boy was she right. The company has several apartment buildings in Madrid in much better neighborhoods- unbeknownst to me. Stay at these other apartments not at the one on Calle Olivar. This neigborhood is questionable even for a well traveled american as I am. You will not get sleep you will not feel safe and there is no security and so your issues are resolved from afar. The price is right because the neighborhood is bad. The positve things about these apartments is that they are inexpensive and the studios are nice. The managemet did kick out the people who harrased me for two days but they will not compensate you for any inconvenience. The apartments were close to many major attractions. I spent most of my time away from the apartment to avoid the occupants and local residents. I came back from my vacation exhausted and disappointed in the experience with my stay and the management's concern for the occupants. I recommend other places to stay.

State lontani da questa bettola. Sporca, totalmente sprovvista di ogni sorta di confort. Arrivo e non trovo nessuno e quindi ho dovuto far chiamare il tassista che gentilmente ( 5euro ) si è prestato a parlare a nome mio. Non vi è il cambio delle tovaglie da bagno ho dovuto comprarne delle altre. Il letto è letteralmente ridicolo, con le ruote e abbastanza di fortuna. Le coperte Sono per letto singolo quindi messe in orizzontale risultando ovviamente piccole. Lenzuola sporche . Cuscini ridicoli. La zona può apparire molto molto molto squallida, ma in verità lo è dal lunedì al giovedì. Nel week end pulula di gente. Unica nota positiva la breve distanza dalla metro di Lavapies. Se tornerò a madrid ? Si certo...se torneo all apartamento camino del Prado? No !
