Madrid just before the time of COVID
We had a wonderful but shortened stay as we were ordered back to the USA the day after we arrived! Sylvia was wonderful - she greeted us with utmost care, didn't touch anything in the apartment until she had washed her hands. The unit was ready early, so we could get a quick nap before walking around the area. We walked to landmarks and markets, sampled vermouth (amazing) and reveled in the sunny weather. Location was great with supermarket just down the block and many small restaurants in the area. Having the elevator to handle moving luggage was awesome. would go back again.
Left after the first night.
I’m not even sure where to begin. Firstly, I sent several messages to Carmen through VRBO before arriving that went unanswered. When we called after collecting our bags,as instructed, a different person answered the phone and arranged to meet us at the apartment at a specific time. She was 35 minutes late and her English was not good. (In all fairness, neither is my Spanish. ). It was a very scary neighborhood to wait outside at night for that long. She showed us around, and explained a few things, but did not show us how to open the front door of the building as someone else had been buzzed in at the time that she arrived. When we settled and decided to go get some dinner, and decided to test the lock and key on the front door and we were not able to open it. There might have been a trick, but we could not figure it out. We did notice that everyone else was getting buzzed in. We called the woman and she said she was home and too far away to help us. She said that she would call Carmen. We heard nothing for two hours. We were hungry and so decided to roll the dice on getting back into the building. Ultimately we got back in and then after midnight Carmen arrived and rang the bell. It was nice for her to come in person, but by that point, we would have been stuck outside for 4 hours. The apartment is relatively nice and there were maps etc there. It was a convenient location, but a very speedy neighborhood. The neighborhood changed very quickly, about two blocks away. I have lived in Manhattan and Philadelphia and am not nervous of city dwelling. This neighborhood was really bad. We decided that we would not feel safe walking home from dinner each night and so we left the morning after arriving. We never heard from Carmen again after ringing the bell after midnight, which really scared us given the neighborhood. I would not recommend this location for women - it might be OK for a few big guys.
Thank you very much for your time to write a review. You booked the apartment on January 23rd at 16.38 and same day at 16.46 (less than 10 minutes later) I sent to you ARRIVAL INSTRUCTIONS. You sent me your Flight number and arrival time some days later on February 4th and I never receive any message or request again until your arrival.
Your arrival time to Madrid was late 19.45 and we do checkins until 21.00. After 21.00 there is a late checkin FEE of 50 euros that I never asked you to pay.
You set up a meeting with Silvia at 21.15 and she arrived in time. When she arrived you was not there and she goes on the meantime to an ATM to get cash. Silvia told me that she was not there for max. 10 minutes. I am very sorry about that, I told her to wait even if you did not arrived at meeting time.
Unfortunately I was out of Madrid this evening, I have dinner on Alcalá de Henares. When Silvia told me that you was not able to open the main door I called you twice without any answer (22.30). I also called a neighbour who check that there was NOT any problem with main door. I asked the neighbor to go down and look for you but nobody was on the main door.
You just have to turn the key and push. There is not any trick and the keys are working. I thought there was a misunderstanding and I finished my dinner in Alcalá de Henares. When I was coming back I receive a message from you at 23.57 that the "front door lock does not work". I called agin you twice without again any answer and I decided to go to the apartment. I was there at 00.18, I called you, I sent a message and I ring the bell several times. I check with my key and the main door lock was working, I neighbor enter on the meantime with his key and he does not have any problem. Some minutes later I received your message telling me that you was on bed. I asked if you need any help and your answer was "not now". My final message to you at 00.23 was: "I am very sorry I was out of Madrid and I come late because I thought it was not possible to get in. I am very sorry to disturb you. Good night, Regards, Carmen".
You never communicate with me again and you did not told me that you was going to leave the apartment. You review is my first news.
Madrid is absolutely secure city, you can walk day and night without any problem. You just have to take care with pickpockets mainly on the underground. I live on the same area and I am a woman and I never have any problem. The area is really nice.
Time Out magazine choose Embajadores in Madrid (La latina is part of Embajadores) THE COOLEST NEIGHBORHOOD IN THE WORLD. “We’re looking for the 50 coolest neighborhoods in the world.” To celebrate its 50th anniversary, the magazine Time Out came up with the idea of finding the best areas in the most vibrant cities around the globe. And they have a winner: Embajadores, in Madrid.
I am very sorry that you did not have time to enjoy Madrid. My best regards,
The perfect place for our family to stay in Madrid!
Having never been to Madrid before, I really was unsure where our family of 5 (with three teenagers) should stay. Staying at Carmen's property was perfect! It was clean, safe, and had everything we needed - enough room for us, a fully functioning kitchen (dishwasher) and laundry (washing machine and dryer), lovely soft towels and warm and comfy beds. We stayed in Winter, but never had to use the heating, as the apartment was cozy enough as is. Booking, communication prior to arrival and check in was a breeze. The location was right in the heart of town, close to a number of supermarkets where we could buy supplies, a fresh fruit and meat market up the road, as well as many and varied eateries when we wanted to eat out. on the plaza at the end of our street. We could either walk to the main tourist attractions, or get on the underground train at our door (Tirso de Molina). Muchissimas gracias, Carmen y Silvia!
