They don’t have an elevator inside, so it’ll be tough if you have heavy luggage and are on the first or second floors. The bathroom window doesn’t have a curtain, but it faces a wall, making it impossible for anyone to look inside. Still, for the shy it’s not comfortable. The shower opens up in a strange, yet cool, way. However, this ends up leaving the bathroom floor soaking wet. The front desk staff spoke little English, but my basic (read: nonexistent) Spanish was enough. In addition, a Moroccan lady was nearby, so she was able to translate between us using Arabic. There was only one free electrical outlet next to one side of the bed. We had to take out the light’s (also on that same side) to be able to share. Yes, you can hear people in the hallway or in the foyer downstairs very clearly, but I guess it’s the same in any apartment.
We absolutely loved this place. It seems like it’s an Andalucian-style house that has been renovated to be a hostal. The interior design is beautiful, the colors match, and it smells amazing downstairs in the foyer, the staircase, and in the room, all with different smells. It’s super clean and is decorated with flowers throughout plus candles. The location is awesome! It’s around 10-15 minutes walking to the Prado bus station, 20-25 minutes to the train station, is right next to (or even in) the old Jewish District (Juderia), is a five-minute walk away from the Real Alcazar’s entrance plus the Cathedral’s entrance. We’d definitely stay here again next time we’re in town.
