About this listing
Comfortable studio in a typical 19th century "corrala" building. Located in the heart of Madrid, between the neighborhood La Latina and Lavapiés. Very easy transport from the airport: the train to Atocha station, then Metro line 1 to Tirso de Molina
Staying in my cozy studio will give you the opportunity to enjoy life in Madrid as a local. The neighbourhood still keeps the flavour of a small-town village preserved in Madrid downtown. It's just a few minutes walk to main spots like Puerta del Sol, Gran Vía, Plaza Mayor, Paseo del Prado or Plaza de España. The El Prado and Thyssen museums are a 20-minute walk away. The Reina Sofía or Puerta del Sol are 15 minutes away. Many theatres are within 10 minutes, and La Latina is just a 5-minute walk away. On Sundays you can't miss the flea market "El Rastro", 2 blocks from the apartment.

Interaction with Guests
Apartments in corralas are laid out around a patio, so they are quiet and peaceful. My studio is on the top floor, a fifth with no elevator. It has 4 windows and receives a lot of natural light. You can see the dome of San Cayetano Church and the roofs of other buildings from the living room windows. There are many books and CDs you can enjoy.
The bedroom is 2 meters above the kitchen and living room, it has a double bed with a viscoelastic mattress fitted with a massage motor you can use if you wish to relax. The living room has a sofa which can be converted into another double bed.

About the Host, María José
Disfruto viajando, me encanta conocer las costumbres de los lugares que visito y participar de sus formas de vida. Vivo en Madrid en un barrio castizo, multicultural y con mucha personalidad, y ofrezco mi casa a quien quiera saborear la autenticidad de la zona.
