It was modern, clean and had all the space we needed for the two of us. The building itself was very nice and felt safe to stay in and, although on a busy corner, it was quiet at night with the shutters down. We found lots of bars/restaurants just around the corner from the apartment so didn't have to go far. There is a Metro across the road in the shopping centre although we walked most places easily, and a great supermarket not far from the apartment which covered our needs. Inside the apartment itself is very comfortable, the living area, dining and kitchen are all on open plan, with the bathroom and bedroom separate. I would have liked to have seen a mirror in the bedroom and extra pillows and a waste basket in the bathroom but all the facilities were very good. The shower was a good size as was the bathroom but a cupboard would have been useful for toiletries to be stored. The air conditioning in the living area and bedroom were really good for keeping the apartment cool and not noisy to use. Overall it is a good place to stay in Madrid if you are visiting as there is a nice walk by the river as well and taxis right outside the door if you need. Jorge was very helpful before our trip and gave us all the information we needed, we were even able to leave our luggage on the last day after check out before we were picked up for the airport.
