The flat is well laid out and light, a luxury for it's location I'm sure. Plumbing is great, bathroom well appointed. Minor criticisms, no drainer for the sink nor dishwasher and no good sized chopping board to be found, kitchen has electric hob, electric oven is fan type but a solid and quiet one. The steel entrance doors are worrying for kids fingers, but make the place feel very secure. Be careful not to bang your head on the very solid metal stair structure above the tv, which is not smart type and so couldn't connect it to our devices, only regular Spanish tv available, we didn't watch a second of tv all week but of course had better things to do, however a chill out movie at the end of busy day city waking would have been nice. Would stay here again for sure, Madrid is large, lots to explore. Owner very pleasant and helpful, readily contactable. Thank you
