The Space

I RENT a nice big room (big bed) in my big (135 m2) just refurbished big appartment in XIX century modernist building.
The appartment is very bright with 5 balconies to a calm and nice street, west orientation. Although it has just been refurbished it has an antiquite and genuine style, with all modern comodities such a fully equiped kitchen, stack system, TV...

It is located in a very elegant central area next to the trendiest and sophisticated shops and cafes and restaurant, the French consulate, 2 very nice parcs... and at the same time very central: just 5-10 min walk to Paseo de la Castella, Gran Vía, Plaza de Cibeles... Next to 2 metro stations: Chueca and Alonso Martinez.

The flat has a very big living-room, a small living room, a connected fireplace room and a connected dinning room. The room has a private big bathroom, a big kitchen with washing machine, equipped kitchen with microwave, oven… and also a big entrance. Clean sheets and towels are included in the price.

JE LOUE une grande chambre dans un grand appartement (135 m2) qui viens d'être rénové. L'immeuble date du XIX et l'appartement conserve le charme d'époque. 5 blacons donnent sur une rue calme et agréable. Le quartier est central, juste à 5-10 min. à pied de Paseo de la Castellana, la rue principale de Madrid, ou de Gran Vía ou Plaza de Cibeles. 2 métros voisins: Chueca et Alonso Martinez. Le quartier reste néanmoins très élégant, avec les boutiques les plus fashion et sophistiquées, ainsi que quelques bars sur les grandes rues du voisinage et restaurants.

L'appartement a un très grand salon, ainsi qu'un "salon-cheminée" et une salle à manger adjacents, qui sont communiquées à la cuisine totalement équipée par une fenêtre. La chambre a une salle de bain complète. Grand hall d'entrée.

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • We are a group of 3 girls and had a brilliant time at Lidia's beautiful bohemian flat. It's very close to loads of great shops and bars and restaurants and Lidia was helpful with suggestions of places to see.

  • Lidia was a warm, generous-spirited host who made me feel completely at home in her stylish and lovely flat.
    The flat is situated in a really good area, packed with cool little cafes, restaurants and independent stores and there is a fantastic Bikram yoga centre right on the doorstep.
    Overall, a really lovely host and a really great experience.

  • Lidia is a lovely person. She's always anxious for a good stay at her spacious apartment. This is located in one of the best areas of Madrid, where we had a lot of fun and exciting shoppings. Nevertheless there are a few points, that other guests have to take care about: The room is in the centre of the apartment with two slidedoors to the floor and two windows to the living-room. That makes it difficult to let fresh air in and/or have some privacy without getting the life of the living-room as well. The all-over experience was good, but also some things to improve. Thanks + all the best.

  • Where to begin? Location - perfect. Facilities - impeccable. Value for money - absolutely. Overall experience - divine. Host - hospitable, solicitous, gracious, generous, multi-lingual, brilliant. Front door key - challenging, incidentally frustrating but utterly insignificant, with absolutely no negative implications for the overall experience. The perfect airbnb experience. Book it! Gracias Lidia. Hasta la proxima visita - que no va a tardar!

  • El piso de Lidia está muy bien ubicado y es muy bonito. Presenta algunos inconvenientes como las llaves que dan acceso al edificio ya que no funcionan bien. Fué un motivo de preocupación cada vez que queriamos acceder.
    La habitación tiene dos ventanas con cortina que dan al salon. Eso resta privacidad. En general, se podria mejorar la limpieza. No pudimos hacer uso de la cocina.
    Lidia trató de ayudarnos pese a estar muy ocupada.

  • We spent a wonderful time at Lidia's home! She is a very lovely person, always ready to help you and make your stay comfortable and nice. We had a lot of fun during our visit to madrid!

  • Staying with Lidia was my first time using Airbnb and she has set the bar high. She's very attentive, helpful and easy going. Everything is clean and organized. Two other housemates were arrived in her flat and they were great too. Overall, I had a great stay and was able to enjoy Madrid without worrying about my room. I would definitely stay in her flat again if I return to Mardrid.

  • What can I tell you about Lidia?

    She speaks 5 languages: Spanish, English, French, Italian and German. So you won't have any language issues.
    She is a laid-back host who is curious about your culture, and respects your privacy.

    About the flat:

    It is in a old building with charm in a residential area, and there are stores every corner. The nearby Carrefour express opens till 10 pm, where you can buy grocery.

    It is very close to Del Prado museum (15 minute walk) and easy to go to Metro, train and bus.

    The room is spacious for one person, and Lidia emptied one closet for my clothes.

    She lets me use the kitchen and I am grateful for the full access.

    Tips for future travellers,

    It's easier to get to the flat by the express bus. (5 euro) I took the metro and it was a mistake. The Madrid metro is not luggage friendly. There are many sections without any access to elevators or escalators.

  • I spent a wonderful time at Lidia's home! She is a very lovely person, always ready to help you and make your stay comfortable and nice. Ania - the other girl who lives in the house - is very friendly. I was tryng to learn spanish and Lidia and Annia were so nice and understandings with my mistakes.

    The apt is charming, decorated with love, attention to details and very very comfortable. The room is large, full of light and quiet.

    It is located in a beaufiful neighborhood, very close to museums (Prado, Thyssen-Bornemisza), parks (Parque del Buen Retiro) and wonderful 'barrios' (as Chueka, Malasana). Get from and to the airport is easy and economic: the express bus get you in about 30 minutes (or even less, if there is no traffic) and with only 5 euros!

    I would definitely recommend to stay in Lidia's place and get to know her. Thank you so much for the nice experience!
