Best of both worlds! American/Spanish couple, one a native English speaker and the other a Madrid native. Super-convenient, center-city Madrid location a stone's throw from the royal palace and gardens and just a block off of Gran Vía.
Bright, clean room with comfortable double futon bed available in private home. Large shared bath and eat-in kitchen. We are in a top-floor walk-up (ático), but large terrace with views of the opera house and cathedral and an always-open bottle of red make it worth the climb. A small elevator is in the process of being installed, completion date TBD.
We are a convenient Metro ride from Barajas Airport (one transfer required), which takes approximately 35 minutes from Terminals 1, 2, and 3, and 40 minutes from Terminal 4 (home of Iberia Airlines and OneWorld Alliance partners).
Use of the washing machine is permitted (no dryer available; line dry only). Smoking permitted on the terrace only.
We will respond within 24 hours however if we are traveling, it may take just a bit longer. We respond to everyone and thank you in advance for your understanding.
The entire apartment is shared with our guests, save for the master bedroom. Guests are encouraged to take whatever space they need on the kitchen shelves and in the refrigerator, and are welcome to use whatever kitchenware and utensils we have.
We are as interactive with our guests as they are comfortable interacting, which has ranged from not a word to recommendations of things to see and do to accompanying guests to museums, bars, or restaurants. We frequently have wine and tapas on the terrace in the warmer months in the evening, in which our guests are welcome and encouraged to join.
Location, location, location! Gran Via and all of its splendor are a block parallel to the apartment, and other attractions are nearby, including Plaza Mayor, Puerta del Sol, Mercado de San Miguel, Plaza de España, the Opera House, Parque del Oueste, and Royal Palace.
Major bus hub is nearby and several Metro stops are within a short distance:
Plaza Santo Domingo (line 2)
Plaza Callao (lines 3 and 5)
Plaza de España (lines 3 and 10)
Great host and an excellent location!
Nice place to stay in the middle of the city, all important museums, parks, etc... are in walking distance. An extra is the terras where you can see the rooftops of Madrid.. and have breakfast or a drink.
Miguel and Michael arevery helpful and friendly. Thank you for our enjoyable stay!
Miguel and Michael were fantastic hosts! Friendly, beautiful terrace, great travel tips!
Appartamento con stanze piccole, per fortuna l'host e il suo compagno non erano a Madrid durante il ns. soggiorno, così era tutto per noi. Situato in un'ottima posizione, in pochi minuti a piedi si raggiunge sia Plaza del Sol che Plaza Major. Considerato il rapporto qualità prezzo, ci tornerei sicuramente.
If you want to spend your days really in center of Madrid I warmly suggest you to rent this room! We was there four days and never need to take a bus or metro. The house is nice, the terrace with sunny days is fantastic!.
Michael was not there but he was very kind and fast in answering to us by email, Miguel is a very nice and gentle host.
Thank you two for all1
Miguel was very sweet and helpful! We didn't get to meet Michael in person, but he was very sweet in his emails. Miguel gave us advise on where to eat, and go when we asked about museums, and was so helpful! I highly recommend this apartment!
Michael and Miguel are a lovely couple! Such accommodating hosts, they even invited us to have a meal with them on the first night that was delicious! The apartment itself is well equipped and we were able to use the kitchen for cooking and also enjoyed some sunshine out on the gorgeous rooftop terrace.
The room was comfortable with a soft mattress and pillows + a working heater and fast internet connection. We had the house to ourselves most of the time as Michael was away on business and Miguel was busy with work. Overall a positive experience. The only thing I'd change would be better shower pressure as it was hard to wash my hair, this is apparently a problem throughout Spain though as we have encountered it often - I don't blame them for this. Don't hesitate to book with them!
El piso es muy céntrico e increíblemente tranquilo para la zona en la que está.
No tuvimos ningún problema ni con check-in, ni con check-out. No nos faltó de nada!!
Plonk yourself in the centre of funky Madrid and stay with Michael and Miguel. Everywhere is easily accessible by foot or oublic transport.
R & R in their apartment dwelling which muffles the beat of the city outside or sidle out onto their rooftop terrace to take in the air and listen to the birdsong above the background thrum.
Gracious hosts full of tips: don't miss out on staying with them.
If you like a quiet, comfortable, incredibly convenient place in the heart of Madrid, this is it. Michael and Miguel were excellent hosts. Thanks!
