                                                                                                      Close to Acacias metro and easy to find the property from here - we travelled to and from the airport by metro using the 5 day pass without any difficulty. Beware if you have limited mobility doing this there are 2 transfers and quite a few stairs to negotiate! Madrid is a lovely vibrant city - enjoyed exploring it. The apartment was lovely, clean and well equipped. The owners were great - responding to all enquiries promptly. The only reason I don't give the accommodation 5 stars is the kitchen. It is very small and I wasn't a fan of the curtains below the work surface. There was very limited cupboard space for non-refrigerated items and difficult to prepare a cooked meal in. We had fun working out how we would reconfigure the flat to improve the layout and create more kitchen space! Great base if you are not going to prepare meals.
