“Cosy little flat with lovely owner”
Reviewed 25 June 2017 for a stay in June 2017

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.

Thank you very much for your kind comment ! You were perfect guest .

For being in the center of Madrid is one of the quietest streets because it has no bars and traffic is restricted to residents. However the dates of your stay coincided with the WorldPride Madrid 2017 "Gay Pride Party" and more holidays, more events and more visitors caused in the whole city of Madrid a noisier atmosphere than normal.

It will be a great pleasure to welcome you any time !!!

“Perfect”
Reviewed 25 May 2017 for a stay in May 2017

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!

“Cozy and excellent located department in Madrid”
Reviewed 11 May 2017 for a stay in May 2017

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.

“Apartment was great!”
Reviewed 14 April 2017 for a stay in March 2017
1
person found this review helpful

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.

Gracias por su amable comentario del apartamento. Ustedes han sido unos huéspedes excelentes en todos los aspectos. En cuanto al barrio, les puedo asegurar que Lavapiés-Embajadores es un barrio maravilloso en pleno centro histórico de Madrid aunque a ustedes lamentablemente les haya tocado vivir como todos a todos los madrileños un episodio puntual y excepcional de enfrentamiento entre policía y senegaleses tras el fallecimiento de uno de ellos, seguido de manifestaciones violentas. La calle del apartamento, en la que yo también vivo, es una calle supertranquila, sin bares y con poco tráfico por tener acceso restringido a residentes, quedando al margen de los altercados de ese día que se dieron en otra zona del barrio. Yo también como turista he vivido episodios puntuales violentos en otras ciudades europeas y desde luego quiero hacer justicia a Madrid, ciudad segura, cosmopolita, alegre y muy acogedora como han reflejado siempre en sus comentarios todos nuestros clientes.
