Your Home in Madrid by Esther Munoz Tong

As you may know, the Apartment Service has teamed up with a group of relocation experts in Madrid to offer a brand new accommodation solution in the heart of the gastronomic capital of Spain. One of our new business development executive, paid a short visit to Apartamentos Sandoval a few days ago, here are his thoughts:

The Sandoval Apartments were very beautiful and I enjoyed the local vicinity. I stopped at the local Carrefour which was very busy... When I heard a lady exclaim “mañana” and then left the store, I should have taken the hint but I decided to try the Spanish shopping experience. Which I can confirm was worthwhile as I picked up a very nice bottle of Rioja and some great food. It’s the little things in life.

The general area around the apartments was excellent and I can confidently promote the features, advantages and benefits of staying at Sandoval. I did manage to visit Opera, Callao, Sol, Gran Via and the Savilla areas... I loved the atmosphere and how accessible everything is in Madrid, so I’m looking forward to coming back for a longer stay in the future.’   

Enough said. Everyone in the office is currently firing emails to our Managing Director to find out when it’s our turn to “sample” first hand Apartamentos Sandoval in Madrid...
