Stay just steps away from Madrid’s 17th century Plaza Mayor in this bright, newly redone super central and well-equipped flat! This apartment is perfect for one person or a couple and is within walking distance to all the major sites in Madrid.

The Space

This elegantly decorated apartment is very quiet and has lots of light. It is located in a historic building which was formerly a convent and has been recently refurbished with high quality care – everything is brand new.
The apartment is in the fourth floor (ground + 4) of a walk-up building, like most buildings in the centre of Madrid... so there is NO elevator, but we can always help you carry your luggage upstairs!

Guest Access

The apartment is composed of:
* A living room with stylish decoration, big sofa, 42”TV, DVD player, A/C, folding table
* Living room balcony which lets in lots of light; it looks out over Toledo Street and one of the entrances to the Plaza Mayor -- really wonderful views! The balcony doors are insulated, so when closed no noise will disturb you during your stay.
* Marble floors throughout
* Kitchen is open plan to the living room and fully equipped with everything you need to cook and eat, including stove, microwave, oven and refrigerator.
* Bedroom with a super comfy double bed (140 x 200 cm) with bedside tables and lamps.
* A bathroom with everything done in marble and a nice shower.
* Service room with washing machine (laundry detergent included!), dryer and spacious closet.
* Wi-Fi is also available during your stay, we know that’s important ;)
Of course, fresh linen and towels are provided, as well as an iron, hair dryer, etc. We also provide maps and information on Madrid as well as basic kitchen ingredients, such as oil, vinegar, spices, salt, sugar, tea & coffee.
If you think there is something missing, we'd be happy to have your feedback in order to continue improving the apartment.

Interaction with Guests

Upon your arrival, one of us will be there to greet you and provide you with all sorts of information we’ve prepared to make your stay smooth, pleasant and enjoyable. And we're available at any time during your stay for any questions, or even for a drink :)!

The Neighborhood

In this apartment, you are in the heart of “Madrid de los Austrias”, or Hapsburg Madrid – an area full of history. You are steps away from the Plaza Mayor and just a couple of minutes’ walk from the Puerta del Sol, the official center of Spain. There are lots of restaurants, bars, gardens, open squares, and shops all around the area.

Getting around

The location of the apartment is perfect for visiting Madrid without even having to use our good public transport network. You can reach all the major sites within a 15 minute walk (or much less!): Gran Via, Puerta del Sol, Plaza Mayor, the Royal Palace, the Prado and Reina Sofia museums, the Retiro Park, the Rastro and La Latina, etc.
These are the walking distances to some landmarks: - Plaza Mayor Square: 1 min - Sol Square: 4 min - Opera Square: 5 minutes. - Royal Palace: 6 minutes. - Shopping at Gran Vía Avenue and Callao Square: 7 minutes. - Relax at Sabatini Royal Gardens: 7 minutes.
But whenever you want to use the metro, the nearest stops are just 5 minutes away: Sol (line 1) and La Latina (line 2).
You definitely won’t have any problems getting where you want to go from here!

Other Things to Note

Normally we have a two-night minimum stay requirement but accept one-night bookings on a case by case basis; please contact us prior to placing your booking request if requesting a reservation for one night only.

We try to be as flexible as possible with your check-in so as to allow you to get into the apartment as soon as you arrive downtown. Let us know your schedule and we'll work it out! However, if you arrive between 10pm and midnight, there is a LATE CHECK IN FEE of 15 euros payable upon arrival. From midnight to 1:30am, the LATE CHECK IN FEE is 25 euros.
You can check availability by clicking on the calendar link above—it’s 100% accurate. Bookings are only accepted through the AirBNB website; feel free to contact us with any questions. You'll get the exact address, directions to the apartment, and tips for Madrid once you've made your reservation!

We look forward to having you at our place soon!

  • Location, location, location. This place is exactly where you need to be, after touring Madrid you can walk back to the "piso" to have a proper Spanish siesta.
    We really felt at home, the building is full of nice friendly locals, and it is nicely decorated. We highly recommend it!

  • Beautiful apartment in an incredible location! Everything is very well-kept and clean, and the photos in the listing represent it well. Oscar and Vanessa were very responsive to our messages before the stay and provide a lot of useful information before you arrive. We met Anibal at the apartment who was very friendly and helpful and showed us where to find everything we would need. The building has no elevator, so keep that in mind if you tire easily. For me, it was a little tough after long days of walking around the city, but it was absolutely worth it for the space and location.

  • Our stay here was the best out of all our Europe travels! Walking distance to everything, everything provided, gave lots of helpful tips and advice, and had a map marked with all the recommended places to eat, shop, drink, etc. Just down the road from the best massage place, and around the corner from delicious market, San Miguel. Highly recommended!!! Thanks!

  • Wonderful flat! I was in Madrid for only one night and wish I had stayed longer. The flat is on the top floor of a cute building that's centrally located on a picturesque street off a nice plaza. It was immaculately clean and had all the essentials. It has beautiful marble floors, nice views, and is very quiet with the window closed. The wifi worked great. The washer/dryer (detergent was provided!) was icing on the cake.

    Booking was easy and the hosts were very accommodating of my arrival schedule. I would recommend this place without hesitation.

  • We had a great experience here! The bed was great, not too hard! The location very good. They had everything you might need here for their guests. The little cafe right outside the door had great wine, beer and prices. Always entertainment in Plaza Mayor while we were there. Thanks Oscar and Vanessa!

  • Logement parfaitement situé.
    Madrid est une ville ou il est très facile de circuler à pied.
    L'appartement n'est pas très grand, mais très fonctionnel et joliment décoré et très propre.
    Il y a tout le nécessaire pour la cuisine.
    Nous recommandons.

  • Fantastic location and lovely flat. You are right next to Plaza Mayor but don't notice the noise at all and are in a perfect place to relax after a long day of sightseeing in Madrid. Vanessa greeted us and gave us some great recommendations of things to do and places to eat, a very welcoming host.
    The apartment has everything you need for a stay in Madrid, especially the really comfy bed!

  • We stayed at Oscar & Vanessa's place for 4 nights and it was all we could hope for. The best thing is the location: you are able to walk basically anywhere and stop by the apartment for a quick rest before dinner if needed. There are multiple choices when it comes to eating out, even though many bars and restaurants were packed during the Easter time. Be sure to have dinner a bit earlier than the locals (which was not a problem for us!) and there's no need to make reservations or wait for your turn. As for places to shop as well as hang out and have a glass of Rioja, we preferred Chueca - again, not too far a walk from the apartment. Everything went very smoothly with Oscar & Vanessa, and we can recommend their place for anyone visiting Madrid, especially couples.

    April 2014
  • We stayed in Oscar and Vanessa's apartment for two nights in April. Upon arrival, we were greeted by Oscar who showed us the apartment. He also provide a map of their favourite restaurants and shopping spots, which didn't disappoint!

    The apartment was as good as how it looks in the photos, if not better. Location was fantastic! We were really pleased. The wifi was fast and plenty of channels (including English) on TV. However we didn't spend too much time there as there was plenty to do and see in Madrid.

About
Hi!! We welcome you to Spain and we wish you a good stay in Madrid! Oscar works as a photographer and Vanessa studies drama and theatre production and management. However, until some years ago Oscar was an engineer and Vanessa was a corporate lawyer. And then one day we decided to turn our lifes up side down and follow our real passions. We are best friends and on May 2012 we decided to move forward and enroll in a small business together. Vanessa had been hosting with Airbnb for 2 years (renting the spare room at her place in Madrid/Milan and her apartment in Barcelona) and her experience (upgraded to Superhost in early 2011) was so positive that we decided we could also help other owners that don't live in town or don't have the time to rent their properties to travelers as you. And this is what we are doing now together. Since from September 2013 Vanessa is very busy with her drama studies, we've asked our friend Ana to help us with the flats. So now we are 3 people! More about us, we love to travel: in 2012 Vanessa traveled to Greece with her backpack and Oscar spent a few months working in France. Last summer Oscar repeated the French experience while Vanessa explored Malaysia during a month and a half. We are also keen in meeting new people and learning new things from them. We enjoy little life pleasures like riding our bicycles or growing our small organic vegetables gardens (each of us has one). We like eco-friendly environments since we care a lot about our planet. During weekends, we have our friend Moi who helps us with check ins and cleanings. We will help you to find you like home in this beautiful city and we look forward to having the opportunity to meet you soon!! Vanessa & Oscar
