Stayed at Artistic for 3 nights in May. Everything was perfect! the location (close to shops, restaurants, museums), the price and especially the atmosphere and the hosts who prepared the breakfast provided loads of useful tips!

Room Tip: Stayed at the tapestries room. It is advertised as a single room but can also be booked for a couple...

Just spent 3 nights at the Artistic. Paola and Rudolph were great hosts and have a charming place. It's located a short walk to the Prado or to the Sol or Opera Metro stops. The room we had was equipped with AC which worked wonderfully well. A very nice place to stay!

Great location, loved the unusual decor.Our hosts were great full of useful local information - we had some great meals following their recommendations.
Wasn't sure about the idea of a big mixed breakfast table, but having done it think its great , we really enjoyed the conversations we had at breakfast - wish more places did it :) And by the way breakfast was lovely- particularly the home made bread
All in all a great stay - thoroughly recommended

We stayed at the Artistic B&B for 3 nights and loved the quiet yet central location, funky decor, and friendly hosts. Paola and Rodolfo gave us terrific advice to make our stay in Madrid more enjoyable, and we met other interesting people at the breakfast table each morning. We walked from the train station to the B&B in about 20 minutes along mostly tree-lined streets on a beautiful summer day. We had such a good time we tried to book more nights and stay longer, but this is a popular place and they were already full, so don't make the same mistake we did and wait too long. Every time we go back to Madrid we'll be staying here.

Room Tip: Tell the owners what kind of mood you want and they'll help you pick the right room. We were loo...

We have been in Madrid, staying in this B&B. Rooms are very clean, comfortable and nicely arranged by Paola, the owner.
The B&B is located in the Barrio de las Letras, one of the most characteristic neighbourhoods in Madrid, at no more than 15 minutes walk from Puerta del Sol and less than 10 minutes from the Prado, the Reina Sofia and the Thyssen Bornemistza Museums.
At breakfast, with an excellent choice of tasty food, you always have a chance to chat with Paola and Rodolfo, the Argentinian owners and the other guests, so it's a nice moment to share your own impression about this amazing city.
Paola and Rodolfo helped us in choosing the right restaurants where to find real Spanish cuisine, avoiding tourist food and gave us many ideas about what to see and where to go, to discover the real essence of Madrid.
Summing up, a wonderful, friendly B&B, absolutely recommended.

We stayed as a couple two weeks ago for 5 nights. Paola and Rodolfo were excellent hosts and we really enjoyed our stay at the BnB. The house is done up beautifully by Paola and has interesting pieces of art everywhere. Rodolfo contributes with his fresh baked artisan breads and cakes every morning and with his ever present smile! We had the biggest room for the last 4 nights and we absolutely loved it. The price compared to the other BnBs and hotels is very competitive. The breakfast was very good! The personal attention and suggestions by hosts are very good. We ate at some of the restaurants recommended by them. Thank you for treating us like family! However, if you have anything more than a backpack, be aware that the BnB is 3 floors up without a lift. We had a lot of trouble taking bags up and down and I would recommend that they get a summer help to help the guests with their bags.

Room Tip: Get an AC room in summer.

From this location we were able to walk to all the sites. The hosts were extremely helpful in offering sites to see, free times at museums and background on local culture. The rooms were quiet, peaceful and up-to-date bathrooms. Breakfast was generous and very tasty, with homemade breads. Be aware the B&B is 3 flights up, no elevator, but well worth the walk up.
