This was the second time I'd stayed in one of Jacob's properties and I would definitely stay here again. Both times I have been travelling alone for work, and this place is a welcome change from a lot of places I have stayed in. The flat is clean, warm and comfortable, and even has a bath which is a nice change from the tiny showers you get in Madrid! Jacob's colleague, Wendy, was friendly and always on hand to help with anything I needed, which included providing breakfast, washing capsules and extra kitchen equipment. I also appreciated the TV and getting to practice my Spanish a bit. There were no other guests when I stayed and so I had to whole place to myself, which was nice.
In terms of location, the flat is about a 15 minute walk from the centre of Alcala, and is right next to a supermarket. There is also a bus that goes from the end of the road to the nearest train station on the Madrid line. All in all a great place to stay!
100% recommended! The landlord is very understandable and does his best to accommodate all of your needs. The location is great and very close to faculty, public transport, and super markets.
