Spacious apartment with interesting community
This is a great apartment to stay at for families and others with large groups. The space is an apartment in a residential apartment building near the Latin district of Madrid. The space is wide, clean, and includes a full kitchen, sheets, towels, and a spacious bathroom and amenities including wifi. However, it seems that the residents in the building do not like the idea of this unit being used as a space for tourists. Local housing activists have posted signs on the doors around the building expressing their discontent with the number of tourists in the apartment and neighborhood. This was disconcerting to us when we arrived and, although we were otherwise comfortable, for this reason we were much more alert and strove to avoid the people who lived at the apartment building. This made for some tense moments when we left the unit at night and at other times during the day. While we were never harassed or threatened, the fact remains that there is significant opposition in the community to this building being used for tourism. If you are willing to put up with a little hostility to your presence via Spanish anti-gentrification campaigns, you will be fine. This is otherwise a great place and great with an immense amount of space for the money.
