About this listing
Modern, elegant, affordable and in a perfect location. Located in the neighborhood of Embajadores, in the historic center of Madrid, the apartment is only a few blocks from transportation, local restaurants and bars, and all the tourist attractions. Within 500m you find Buen Retiro Park, El Prado Museum, Queen Sofia Museum and Almudena Cathedral. Right outside the apartment are many of the best open-terrace cafes, tapas bars, and nightlife for locals and tourists alike. Within 5 minutes you reach Atocha Station (to reach any part of Madrid or Spain through any means of transportation) and Lavapies Metro.
The recently-renovated and decorated apartment provides a fully-equipped kitchen (oven, microwave, fridge, freezer) and bathroom (bath, washing machine), spacious dining room with table, and large living room with internet-wifi, TV and stereo system, a couch and a sofa-bed, and a bedroom with a queen-sized bed. Beautiful sunlight pours through the rustic castizo-style open balconies, overlooking the bustling open air terraces on the street below. Double-paned windows and air conditioning and heating, provide peace and solace and a means to retreat to the contemporary and cool design within the apartment.
There are not many rules to follow except those made by common sense. But we will provide written house instructions there, like how to use the washing machine and the air conditioning.
One quite important thing is to avoid to make too much noise after midnight, to avoid to disturb the sleep of the neightbors.
Walls are very thin and my neighbors are either workers or old people quite sensitive to noise. Please, be respectful with the community and don't make too much noise of play music after 12am.
Sometimes we have to be strict with the check in and check out times (check in between 4pm and 11pm and check out time is before 12pm), in case other guests are coming the day you leave or leaving the day you enter. So if you need more flexibility, let us know to arrange it properly.
Looking forward to seeing you here!
Yacob was very accommodating, we had a late arrival and he arranged for his mother(a very nice lady) to wait for us to get there to show us the place and give us the key. The apartment was very spacious and in a very good location. Tons of restaurants close and walking distance to some great parks and sites. The AC was great, it was very hot in Madrid while we were there and it stayed very cool in the apartment. Definitely recommend staying there. Thanks Yacob!
Yacob's apartment is in a very lively neighborhood of Madrid. It is walking distance from the center of the city and well connected by metro and bus from everywhere. The neighborhood has everything you may need (grocery shops, bars and restaurants, museums, metro, etc). The apartment is a nice 1 bedroom apartment with a very big living room with two comfortable couches that can serve as beds if needed. It has everything you may need in an apartment, it's very well equiped. The apartment is very clean, has a lot of light and, although it's in a lively neighborhood, the walls are great and you never hear noises from the street. A/C and wifi work perfectly. I stayed in Yacob's apartment during Madrid's hot summer days and the apartment walls are so thick and isolate perfectly the apartment that you sometimes you don't even need to use the A/C!
We had a pleasant stay at Yacob's place.
His flat is very well located and as advertised huge. Everything is well furnished, you can even find deodorant, soap, shampoo etc. in the kitchen there is complimentary coffee and tea, which is a very kind thought as you may not have bought it on your way to the flat. Regarding the neighborhood there is everything you may want, various supermarkets and plenty of restaurants and bars. We really liked our stay there and do not hesitate to recommend it to future travelers.
Yacob was an excellent host. He was very good about arranging entry into the place which was easy to find. The location was excellenct being only quarter mile from Aloha train station. Lavapies, the neighborhood the apartment is located in, has lots of restaurants and easy access to public transit. It was equally nice to have AC and sturdy fans. I would recommend this place to anyone visiting Madrid especially in summer.
We were happy to stay there. well arranged equipments and clean flat. the effort of your parent for maintaing good quality of flat is felt during stay. good location to reach public transportation and valuable museums in Madrid. will highly recommend to stay.
Yacob's place was excellent--perfect location from which to see and do everything in Madrid. The neighborhood is safe, alive and inviting. Yacob wasn't in town when we arrived, but his parents patiently waited for us and despite a significant language barrier communicated what we needed to know very well. Yacob incredibly responsive to all inquiries about our trip. Two thumbs up!
Tout est conforme à la description.
Absolument rien à dire.
L'appartement est parfait, la cuisine est très bien équipée. On y retrouve même de l'huile, vinaigre, café, tisane, etc.
Nous aurions passé plus de temps à Madrid si le temps nous l'aurait permis simplement à cause de l'appartement.
About the Host, Yacob
I think the most important thing I could say about me here (beyond other 1000 fascinating abilities that I possess ;)) is that I am a trustworthy person. I take my hosting in airbnb as something serious, and I only feel really happy when my guest has a good experience.
