Safety concern in Madrid

Jump to last reply

We (2* 66 years old) will be in Madrid beginning of September. We were invited to stay in a friend friend's apartment which is on Cale Velarde. Recently I saw some comments stating that it is not advisable safety wise to stay North of Gran Via. Should one avoid this area? If so, are tourists attacked, robbed more often here? Is it dangerous only at night? We would like to be able to be out at night and walk home without being afraid or having to take taxis after dark. I'd appreciate some candid input regarding this specific area.
