Magic under roof penthouse SOL

Apartment - Entire home/apt · Calle Olivar, Madrid, Community of Madrid 28012, Spain

A place where you can lie in bed after a long day sightseeing and fall sleep seeing the stars from bed, an original retro bathtub and a terrace where you can see the Lavapiés roofs. That and much more is what you can get in this original penthouse!

The Space

We are renting this charming, bright and silent home right in the centre, quite close from the "Kilometro 0", considered the central point in Spain. The apartment is very peaceful and has lots of light and good vibe.

It's perfect for a couple but the futton in the living room can accomodate 2 more people, so it's perfect for families, three or four friends or two couples (with privacy for both given that the living room and the main bedroom are distant from each other), also because the apartment is very spacious.

The apartment is really unique, nice, charming, with personality and it's well equipped and its location is unbeatable, super central, in one of the nicest streets of Lavapiés. Perfect to experience leaving under the roofs of old town Madrid.

The apartment is in the fourth floor of a walk up building, like most buildings in the centre of Madrid... so NO elevator, but we can always help you with your luggage if you are carrying so much weight:)

Also, please note that some of the ceilings of the apartment are low (specially in the corridor/kitchen) although in the living room, bedroom and most of the bathroom you can stand on your feet even if you're tall.

Guest Access

The apartment is composed by:
* 1 Bedroom with a double bed (queen size), a closet and a huge window overlooking the roofs of Lavapiés.
* Living room with a huge sofa, dining table for 4 people, TV and a separate futton that can fit 2 additional people.
* Kitchen fully equipped with anything you need to cook and eat, including the stove, microwave with grill, refrigerator, washing machine, dishwasher and more. There is no dryer but there is a clothes horse that you can use. Or you can hang the clothes outside in the communal terrace.
* We provide basic ingredients, such as oil, vinegar, spices, salt, sugar, tea & coffee.
* A bathroom with a nice and comfortable bathtube, an original piece from the 19th century. You haven't seen one like this before!
* Wi-Fi is also available during your stay, how not ;)

Of course, fresh linen and towels are provided, as well as iron, etc. If you think there is something missing, we'll be happy to have your feedback in order to continue improving the apartment.

VERY IMPORTANT: Guests will have access to the comunal terrace, perfect for the spring days!

Interaction with Guests

At your arrival one of us will be there to greet you and give you a bunch of information we've prepared to make your stay smooth, pleasant and most enjoyable. And we're available at any time during your stay, even for a drink:)

The Neighborhood

With lots of restaurants and bars, theatres and some art galleries, Lavapiés is a multicultural and bohemian neighbourhood, where inmigrants, elderly people having lived there forever and young families share the lively streets of the neighbourhood.

Getting around

The apartment has 3 metro stops less than five minutes away: Lavapiés, Antón Martín and Tirso de Molina.

The location of the apartment is perfect to visit Madrid without even having to use our good public transport network. Actually, within 12 minutes walking you can reach the main museums in town (Prado, Reina Sofia and Thyssen Bornemisza), the Retiro Park. Gran Via, Sol, Plaza Mayor, the royal Palace are even closer, less the 10 minutes walking. and its neoclassic architecture, the Rastro and La Latina, etc.

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • El piso es una buhardilla hermosa, muy linda decorada y limpia. La ubicación del piso es ideal, se puede acceder a todos los servicios y atracciones principales caminando.

  • We had a great stay at this apartment. Very centrally located - we only had to take public transportation to the airport. The apartment itself is lovely, clean, well stocked, and spacious. The only downsides, which weren't really downsides for us at all but might be to some, are the amount of stairs you have to climb to get to the fifth floor (no elevator) and the low ceilings (you have to bend over to walk around in some areas). We emailed Vanessa a few times and got responses back right away. We would highly recommend staying at Oscar and Vanessa's apartment!

  • Accueil chaleureux de Vanessa. Magnifique week end à Madrid pour nous. L´appartement est idéalement situé pour découvrir le centre ville à pied. Les photos sont conformes à ce petit nid sous les toits. Beaucoup de charme.

  • The apartment was enchanting and in a great neighbourhood! The interior is amazing, with little niches, shelves and beatiful curves all over .
    We requested the place last minute but vanessa was super helpfull, and anibal gave us a great little tour of the house when we arrived.

    We stayed for just one night, but will definately return for a longer stay:)

    March 2014
  • Very nice appartment, perfect location and convenient hosts.

    March 2014
  • We enjoyed our stay at Oscar and Vanessas apartment very much. It's really perfect located in walking distance from many good places in Madrid. Everything worked as it should. We didn't meet Oscar and Vanessa in person, but their friend Anibal was there to let us in and show how things worked. As the description of the apartment says, the ceiling is very low in the kitchen/corridor-area, but you acually get used to bow your head in the corridor.

    March 2014
  • We had an awesome time in the apartment. The apartment was perfectly clean, comfortable and cute. Oscar and Vanessa made everything really easy for us, the check in and check out, good communication and also the list with recommended places to go was very helpful.
    We recommend the apartment as a place to stay!

    March 2014
  • Le séjour s'est passé à merveille. L'accueil de Vanessa était parfait, alors même que nous sommes arrivés tard à l'appartement dû à un retard de notre vol. L'appartement est idéalement situé dans un quartier dynamique proche du métro, de la Reina Sofia.
    À notre prochain séjour à Madrid, nous n'hésiterons pas à revenir chez Vanessa et OScar.

  • A great location in the heart of Madrid, you can walk to all the best parts of the city very easily. The apartment itself is lovely, very clean and has everything you would need. Oscar and Vanessa were great hosts and they provided really clear instructions and recommendations for our stay. Definitely recommend and can't wait to return to Madrid!

    February 2014
  • Excellent accueil à notre arrivée par Ana qui nous a très gentiment indiqué aussi "les bonnes adresses". L'appartement, que nous avons facilement trouvé grâce aux indications données par Vanessa, était tel que décrit: spacieux, propre, très bien décoré. Nous avons aimé ce lieu même si nous nous sommes quelquefois cogné la tête!!! Par ailleurs, il est idéalement situé pour visiter Madrid à pied (ou en métro quand la fatigue l'a emporté)
    Merci à nos hôtes et espérons revenir un jour à Madrid et dans cet appartement que nous recommandons sans hésiter

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 Anibal 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
