Madrid Apartment Rentals

Jump to last reply

Would those familiar with Madrid mind taking a look at the following apartments I am considering for next March? I'd be very grateful for any opinions re: location, potential noise, etc. Thank you!
Oh, travel party is myself, husband, and teen daughter.

Above, we're interested in the 2 br apt. but they both seem to be decorated alike.
This is apparently from an individual owner; (also a listing on airbnb), on Calle Mayor 37, what seems to be a busy street. That's fine by us, just curious about the neighborhood. Also, I've never rented from an individual outside the US (and yes I was nervous about that too, but it turned out fine), so I'm a bit nervous about that.

Also this one, from Madrid SmartRentals:

2 br, 2 ba. Calle Santa Maria 36 Good reviews on booking.com.

This one is right on Calle Huertas I believe, and I've read it's noisy. How noisy, I'm wondering? ( I live on a busy corner on the outskirts of Chicago, with an apartment building behind us, so we are used to some noise. )

Of the three, I like the looks of the first one on Calle Mayor 37 best.

Finally, I do have a "family room" reserved (w/free cancellation) at Room Mate Laura, in case I cannot find an apartment; but I would really like to have a proper dining table, and a proper bed (not a sofa bed) and dressing area for my daughter. The RML has neither of those.

Thanks again for any opinions! Oh - we will be in Madrid for 7 nights.
