Segovia and/or Madrid - laundry?

Does anyone know of a self-service laundry in Segovia and/or Madrid?

AB,

Here is a map of Madrid showing all the laundromats, aka; 'lavanderías' ( Lavandería automática/ Lavandería Autoservicio): http://tinyurl.com/Madrid-Laundry

RS Spain book (2015) recommends this self-serve laundromat near Plaza Mayor: http://tinyurl.com/RS-Madrid-Laundromat

I have not used any of these, as I didn't do laundry in Madrid.

Keep in mind that doing laundry in a self-service laundromat is much more expensive than in the U.S.

Don't be surprised to pay anywhere from €6 - €10 per load. Last year I spend around €20 for 2 loads (wash & dry) in Italy.

Sometimes, it's worth having your hotel take care of your laundry or using a drop-off service where you can drop off your
dirty clothes in the morning then pick it up later that same day or the following day.

Hope this helps!

Energy is expensive in Europe, so it reflects in laundry prices.

If I had a choice, I'd do my laundry in Segovia. Madrid is the worst in Spain for petty crime (it competes with Barcelona). You will have to watch your things like a hawk. Segovia is more like most of Spain, low key with lots of warm, honest people.
