This really was the ideal apartment from which to see the sights and museums of Madrid. The Metro station is only a 10 minute walk away, and then five stops to the city centre (Sol) by train. It is a quiet neighbourhood, so no disturbance at night, and the garage parking space was invaluable to us as we took the ferry from the UK to Bilbao and drove from there; Madrid is a half day's drive from Bilbao or Santander. The apartment is very well equipped and comfortable. Finally, the owner, Enrique was extremely helpful on arrival, and before. For some reason our car's GPS thought the postcode was in the city centre! Fortunately we had an alternative source for GPS via cell-phone, and this got us there. Enrique was very patient and waited for us as we coped with the traffic and made our way ... from wherever we were! Excellent stay, but you really cannot 'do' Madrid in just three days. The Prado takes a day and the Reina Sofia another half day at least. Allow at least a day for the main sights, and then some for the Thyssen gallery, and others, which we regrettably did not find time for. We might be back!
