We spend a weekend in the flat on a combined business & pleasure trip to Madrid.
First of all, we were greeted heartily by the owner Elena. Cheerfully, she explained us everything we needed to know about the flat (twice actually, as we arrived independently), the city quarter, grocery shopping in the vicinity, sightseeing and Tapas recommendations.
Just after she left us, we found a welcome apero waiting for us in the fridge.
A perfect welcome and start to a great stay in Spain's capital.
The flat has everything one can ask for, all kitchen equipment as well as the necessary consumables (soap, toilet paper, showet gel etc.) and air conditioning.
The interior is decorated with love and taste and the flat is both cosy and spacious for a couple (although the bed-sofa in the living room allows for 4 guests in total).
The location is great. All major sights and Madrid's nightlife are within walking distance (for healthy legs, that is). And the quarter of Lavapies, where it is located in, offers some off-the-beaten-path authenticity.
However, it should be noted that the flat is not for people who are very sensitive to noises disturbing their sleep. The flat is not entirely soundproof towards the street. But as this is a tiny side-street, it's barely an issue -and good luck finding something quieter in Madrid's centre.
We will certainly come back and can only recommend the flat.
Elena made us very welcome on our visit to Madrid. The apartment was clean and tidy and was the perfect place for visiting The Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofía and was only 10 minute walk from Atocha Station and close to the metro. We had a lovely time and will visit again!
The location is enchanting, a small and tranquil street in the center of Madrid. Perfect to visit Madrid's highlights walking, near a well stocked supermarket and a Metro station.
The department is smartly decorated, comfortable and well equipped. Elena is very nice and helpful, and provided us with a lot of information about the neighborhood and interesting places to visit around. She also received us with sweets, that gave a nice welcoming feeling, and was very supportive.
If or when I visit Madrid again, I will, no doubt, use it again.
Small one bedroom apartment on ground floor. Secure, well stocked,organized, and centrally located to walk to museums and even to Plaza Mayor. Also walkable with suitcase to train station and Metro. Elena was helpful, let us come a bit early and gave us a quick orientation. We are comfortable in cities so loved the experience of Madrid from the apartment. There was a bit of noise from construction next door but it started pretty late in the morning and was not much of an issue for us including when we slept until almost 11 am one morning early in the week we stayed there. Would definitely stay there again and was glad we found it.
Ideally situated in a non tourist area, a place explore rhe Real Madrid ,close enough to walk to all the main attractions, and even closer to the tapas bars
The accommodation was spotless, contained everything you needed, including a welcome bottle of cava, and tin of anchovies,
Definitely recommend for couples, great layout with a loft bedroom
