Hello again, I've got my finger on the book now button but can't press it till I get some opinions from you guys!!! The apartment I like in on Calle de Juan Tornero and wonder if this area is ok. I know it's a little out of the way but we like that. It does seem to have nice reviews.
As always your valued opinion welcome as you've made me avoid a couple of properties that had hidden faults!!!
Regards Di x

Congratulations! I hope you enjoy Madrid.

Now that you are all set, I would like some feedback on some of my apartment options. I have one apartment that I like on Calle Atocha and Calle San Pedro. It is north of Atocha. Will it be too noisy to be right on Atocha? Is that a good neighborhood?

Another apartment is near Opera Metro Stop. Is that a better location as far as being central to walking to the museums, plaza Mayor, Palace, etc than these:

Chamberi or north of the Gran Via near the Plaza de Espana?

Hi teachertraveler8, think you might want to re-post this as a new topic as I can't be of much help to you having never travelled to Madrid before!!!!!

Good luck with your search!!

I did post it as another topic, but we were posting at the same time and I didn't want people to not look at yours. I think the "theme" is pretty much the same anyway. If I don't get any responses, I will re-post.

WOW!!!! What a surprise! It just dawned on me, Di Kitchy!! This is (practically) in MY NEIGHBORHOOD!!! Or, at the very least, my area of Madrid. wave

As mentioned above, this is a very working-class area of Madrid, pretty safe, no tourists whatsoever, and you'll also be very close to the newly renovated "River Walk". The Puerta del Ángel is the nearest metro station to the Mirador de Goya apartment about 6 or 7 blocks away. Not too bad. Once you get to the Paseo de Extremadura, 5 blocks north, you'll have about 8 buses to take you nearly anywhere into Old downtown Madrid.

And what great views from the terraza - according to the Only-Apartments booking website, anyway. Did you book through them? If not, who did you use? I'd love to get a look at this place while you're here, if you don't mind. I'll invite you to a neighborhood bar for a beer as payment.

Wow! I'm beside myself! Saludos, MadridMan wave

teachertravel;;; all those are nice areas too. what is a good neighborhood to you?
Calle Atocha and Calle San Pedro. It is north of Atocha. you wont have time to hear the train....you will be out

Opera Metro Stop. yes in my opinion is a better location.more central

Chamberi or north of the Gran Via near the Plaza de Espana? nice area too, love the Plaza area, my best if would be there as in past years is the plaza de castilla area towards barrio del pilar, residential , spanish, nice, metro takes you anywhere,and close to my team ::)
cheers
