MADRID APARTMENT SEARCH...2 bedroom..opinions, recs, please

Jump to last reply

Two friends plan to travel to Spain in late October/November. We hope to begin our visit with a few days (perhaps 4-5) in a Madrid apartment. We prefer two bedrooms and two bathrooms, with attractive furnishings and a decent kitchen. Location is flexible. I do not want to be smack near the hubbub of Plaza del Sol. But I do not know the city all that well so would welcome comments on neighborhoods and individual apartments. On my most recent visit I stayed near the Prado so would prefer a different area this time.

Unfortunately I could find no rentals of less than a week in the area that I like just east of Retiro Park, or in Salamanca.
(I've only just begun looking).

Spain Select has a good range of options, but many are either booked or not available for periods of less than a month. Of those that ARE available through this agency, does anyone have preferences? I found this one that looks appealing at first glance and would love comments about the apartment and the location, which I think might be called Chueca. I will post others when I find them, and ask for comments:

I fell in love all over again with the city on my visit last winter and hope to continue the affair from a convenient and attractive base! Many thanks for any and all comments.
