"Fantastic location, perfect rental for extended family and toddl"

My family stayed in this apartment over Christmas week, 2011. My parents, myself, my husband and our toddler, and my sister stayed at the Opera apartment.

We were fortunate to have the help of my brother for our check-in and check-out (he currently lives in Madrid and speaks fluent Spanish).

The apartment was perfectly situated—in the heart of everything—walking distance to Sol, Plaza Mayor, Palace, etc. Yet at the same time it was located in a quiet plaza, across the street from a church, and with a lovely partial view of the Palace and Opera.

Every morning upon waking, we loved looking out the French doors onto the plaza. We exclaimed multiple times during our stay that we could not have had a better location! The apartment was perfectly sized for our group, and toddler friendly.

The washer worked great, having the two bathrooms was extremely helpful, and the kitchen appliances met our needs. The wifi worked well and was very helpful for making reservations and finding out information about what we wanted to do in the city (making train reservations, etc.).

The only critiques I have are that the kitchen utensils were rather poor and we were lacking some basic knives and serving utensils, which would have been helpful for making our Christmas dinner!
