GREAT APARTMENT IN FANTASTIC NEIGHBORHOOD.
Apartment was exactly as advertised: very modern and spacious in great location. Property manager was very helpful and accommodating. We would definitely go back.
Fabulous location. Apartment a little weird
Location is absolutely perfect. You can walk easily to all 3 museums, shops, restaurants, bars, train station, etc. Apt. was spotless and very quiet all the time. However, it is one of those spots where form rules over function. The lighting situation is truly bizarre. No instructions, no signs - just a ton of little buttons to push with very little relevance to the location of the switch and the lights that they control. I never did figure out how to get good lighting over the bedroom sinks - which in themselves are also very strange. You have 1.5 baths for a one bedroom apt. Why there are two pedestal sinks (one of which wobbles) in the bedroom is beyond me. No place to put anything toiletry wise. I found a bucket in the cleaning closet and turned it upside down to use for a little low table. The toilet area in the master does not have a door.
No tub mat to use for shower so we had to use one of the limited bath towels as a mat.
This apt has all the bells and whistles but is very awkward to use. Also take note, no elevator but luckily it is on the 1st floor — which is really the 2nd floor. Have no idea why they call it a “loft”. It is an apartment with windows only on the front.
So if you are in to highly contemporary design spots and lots of tech items to figure out, this is the place for you.
For communication it would have been so much easier to use text or What’s app but the rental company insisted on using email. Very difficult with limited cell service while we were driving so it was impossible to keep them informed of our arrival time. The gentleman who met us was very informative and helpful.
Very modern space
Exactly as photographed!!
The apartment is exactly as photographed. Modern and high tech appliance throughout. Perfect for a couples weekend away or if you are visiting for a short amount of time. However there is one flaw which you should be aware of. The staircase leading up to the apartment is warped and therefore extra care needs to be taken when climbing up and down the stairs.
Otherwise I had not complaints or issues. The team at Presidence were very helpful. I couldn’t recommend them more.
Beautifully renovated and expensively furnished and equipped; some glitches
The apartment was as described and depicted in the pictures. It had been clearly expensively renovated and equipped. The kitchen appliances in particular were well above what was expected in quality: large fridge with color-matched door facing, wine cooler (not yet operational), wall oven and separate microwave, 4 burner counter-top cooktop with induction burners, and a combination European-style washer/dryer.
From the pristine appearance of the appliances and cookware, it was clear that the apartment had not been used much since being renovated. There were some issues that still needed to be worked out, however. As we were more used to North American style appliances and facilities, the European equivalent AC and washer/drier were much more complicated to figure out: we were never quite able to figure out how to use the AC controls, and each time the apartment got too cold, all we could do was to turn it off until it got warmer, then turn it back on again. We never got the washer/drier to dry properly either. We would suggest English instructions for the AC and the Washer/drier for non European visitors.
Location-wise, the apartment was well positioned between the Puerta del Sol area and the Thyssen/Prado area - convenient for walking in either direction. Unfortunately, for travelling on the metro, the nearby Antón Martín stop was closed until November for refurbishing, so we had to walk much farther to get to a working metro stop.
The final issue with the apartment was more significant: there was a defect in the bathroom shower floor, which prevented the water from draining away properly. We had to manually sweep the water towards the drain each time after using the shower. Otherwise we were afraid that the water would overflow to the rest of the bathroom. Also, we had to step into the cold residual water whenever stepping into the shower. Not fun.
Overall, the apartment was a very high quality apartment, very spacious, reasonable location, and if the bathroom shower problem and need for English instructions in how to use the AC and Washer/drier were addressed, we would have no hesitation in staying at the apartment in the future.
Una estancia excelente, perfectamente ubicado, con calidades muy altas, la atención por parte de los dueños fue excelente, incluso pudimos hacer check in mas temprano. Además tienes a un paseo las principales atracciones de Madrid
