Staying at Lorenzo's was a great experience! The place is centrally located and is walking distance (15 minutes, tops) to many attractions such as The Royal Palace, San Miguel Market, and Plaza del Sol.
The apartment itself is very clean and comfortable. It was the perfect size for two people. The bed was comfy and the shower had great water pressure which made coming home after a long day of exploring something we looked forward to. Also, the AC unit works great, which we definitely appreciated since we were in Madrid during the summer.
Lorenzo is very friendly and helpful. He gave us a bunch of great recommendations when we first arrived and was quick to responding to any questions we had during our stay. Not to mention, he helped us carry our bags up (as well as down). With that being said, the apartment is on the third floor and there are no elevators. It wasn't much of a problem for us though since we didn't pack much when we went out.
Overall, we couldn't have asked for a better host in Madrid. We would definitely stay here again!
Lorenzo was great and so was the apartment. The apartment is perfectly located, clean, and just such a great place I'd love to come back and stay there again!
The apartment was lovely. It has everything we could need. Lorenzo was very helpful and check-in was very easy as his friend was waiting for us and let us in. It was very easy to get all around town due to the great location. Very comfortable bed.
My husband and I were warmly welcomed by Lorenzo when we arrived from the Metro. You will need to use google maps to find the place. Upon leaving the apartment we left the keys inside and didn't have contact with Lorenzo again after our first greeting.
There were no surprises with the actual apartment as I think most reviews had previously summarised the place quite well. The main concerns that we had were the following:
1. We felt the area was very dodgy and didn't feel very comfortable walking home at night. Quite a few homeless people and some seedy looking characters lurking around.
2. The stairs were a problem when carrying suitcases.
3. Hot water ran out quickly which was not a problem for us because there was a heatwave but would be a problem in cooler weather.
4. As there was a heat wave the air conditioner in the living was inadequate to cool down the bedroom.
5. Not essential but it would have been nice to have had at least one English TV news program.
6. An iron was provided but no ironing board.
7. Coffee machine provided with two capsules. Happy to buy more, but this proved quite a challenge.
Comfort and security are essential to me in selecting accommodation and I am afraid that this apartment just didn't quite tick all the boxes.
Great apartment in the city - Lorenzo was really welcoming, the apartment clean and had everything that was needed and it was easy to walk everywhere we wanted to go.
We had e great time at Lorenzo's apartment. It is very nice, and within walking distance of the main places of interest in Madrid. Lorenzo was very helpful, even finding us a perfect place to store our bikes. (we were on a cycling holiday) The apartment is clean and comfortable. Thank you!

About the Host, Lorenzo
Hola soy Lorenzo, estaré encantado de alojaros en mi casa y me encantaría recomendaros lugares de Madrid para poder visitar, para poder comer y para poder disfrutar de esta ciudad.
Lo que pretendo, es que todas aquellas personas que se alojen en mi casa, se sientan cómodos, y hacer de estos lugares, lugares entrañables. Conseguir la satisfacción del viajero, para mi, es una misión.
