Accommodation Review: Perfect AirBnB Location In Madrid, Spain

Friday, April 1, 2016

Just look at this colorful street in Madrid! The best part of our AirBnB accommodation was its location. Located near the Anton Martin metro stop, this neighborhood had tons of restaurants, grocery stores, bakeries, and cool little stores. It was a perfect location for our lazy visit.

As for the AirBnB itself, it wasn't my favorite, nor was it my least favorite that we've ever stayed in. The person who greeted us (not the apartment owner, but a manager of several similar accommodations ... those are never our favorite) was really friendly. She showed us everything we needed to know about the apartment and gave us information for checking out. The apartment was small, but comfortable even when we added a travel crib.

The kitchen was well equipped, the bathroom had toiletries, and the closet (and under the bed) was stocked with extra blankets and towels. The only minor issue was the shower pressure, which really came out like a trickle (I think it would have been faster to wash my hair in the sink!).

The only major difficulty we had was lugging our stroller and carseat combo up and down the stairs every time we wanted to go out. I knew ahead of time that the apartment was a walk up, but didn't initially think this would be a problem. The stairs; however, were uneven and difficult to navigate while holding a baby and all of the necessary baby crap that you need for a day out. Also, the apartment itself was down a very narrow passageway, making it even more difficult to navigate. We managed, but I wouldn't suggest it. If you have kids, heavy luggage, or a problem walking up stairs this apartment is not for you!

If you are looking for a budget-friendly apartment in a great location of Madrid, and don't have a lot of stuff or a kid, this apartment really was a great find.

What do you think about staying in AirBnB accommodations with kids?
