We're 2 seniors spending 2 weeks in Madrid in May, 2018. We're looking for a non-touristy neighborhood to rent an apartment or BnB that's close to the Metro and not too far from RENFE stations that serve Cercedilla, Segovia, Avila, etc. Any suggestions?

Ah well it's good to get out of the tourist trap center, oh yes some marvels in there but all surrounded by many overprice places. For the history and the ambiance the center or centro is ok but as you well said looking for non tourist areas than I will take you to Plaza Castilla area ,good transport hub there as well as the area of the train station Chamartin. Cercedilla is on the cercanias train (suburbian line ok from Chamartin) the others are RENFE trains leaving from Chamartin or Atocha all well connected; Segovia better on the Sepulvedana bus line. I have given you links to these in your transport post.

Another excellent area is around the Plaza de Colon closer to the center but still good chic area. There should be plenty of choices in those types of accommodations there.

Madridman has links to some of the apartments and BnB as well just look at main Home page. GOYA75 apartments are very good as used and can recommend, the others do not know as usually stayed with family or rent houses outside the city as I used my car.

Hope it helps
