We stayed in apartment 3D for 2 weeks during January. The apartment was tiny and certainly not suitable for 3 people. The bed was so close to the wardrobe that you could not open the doors and even the fittest of people had to be contortionists to get around the bed. The mattress was unusually down almost at floor level (futon style), The dining table was a tiny high round table with 3 high barstools and not suitable for having a meal on. The area is very noisy throughout the night sometimes until 6 o'clock in the morning. the double glazing is not effective and unless you are stone deaf you cannot get any sleep without earplugs. The area is a narrow back street area with bars and clubs on every corner with up to a hundred people at a time stood out in the street below your window with drinks in thier hands, chain smoking and singing and shouting at the top of thier voices. We made the mistake of hiring a car. DON'T DO IT. There is nowhere to park in the streets anywhere near these apartments and we had to park in a garage 5 blocks away at a cost of 150 Euros. Rather annoying really as I had had an e mail from booking . com saying that the letting agents had assured them that there was public parking outside and that the photo's were representative of the apartments in fittings and size. I am really surprised looking at the negative reviews that booking . com even want to get involved with these apartments. The apartment 3D that we stayed in, although tiny was adequate and reasonably well equipped for 2 people. It had an excellent washer and large fridge freezer and adequate cooking facilities. It was well serviced by the lift from inside the front entrance. These are only back street apartments so there is no reception or staff on site. you have to state your arrival time and someone brings you the key.Dont get it wrong or like the optional cleaning it will cost you 30 euros a throw. 50 if you loose the keys ! The apartment is as near central as you will get and is only a very short walking distance from 2 different metro tube lines and a Lidl supermarket. Public transport and taxi's in Madrid are quite cheap and the position of these budget apartments is ideal for seeing the Cultural side of this city and eating out. True there is a picture of the tiny apartment that they allocated to us on thier web site but there are also many more far more luxurious and celubrious photos. MAYBE IT'S THE LUCK OFF THE DRAW ! Our apartment was very well serviced and we were brought heaps of bedding and towels nearly every day. We had a problem with the internet and also had water streaming down the ceiling light fitting from the apartment above. We reported these to the letting company locally who spoke excellent english and both items were attended to immediatley by there maintainance staff. Would we go again? NO. If you want to join the revellers this is possibly the place for you. Overall 900 euros and it is budget accomodation . I DON'T KNOW MAKE UP YOUR OWN MIND.
