I padroni di casa Gema e Jimmy purtroppo non li abbiamo potuti incontrare, ma nelle comunicazioni sono stati comunque molto presenti sia nelle istruzioni per raggiungere l’alloggio sia nelle risposte, sempre chiare ed immediate, alle mie domande.
Siamo stati accolti da una loro amica Laura, anche lei molto gentile e simpatica. Lo studio non è grandissimo, ma molto funzionale. È tenuto molto bene, ma la cosa più importante è che è pulitissimo e con tutto il necessario. Inoltre è in centro e ciò permette di girare praticamente a piedi tutta Madrid.
È stato comunque un soggiorno fantastico, consigliatissimo!
This was a great Airbnb experience. Everything went like clockwork and although I did not meet Gema and Jimmy their instructions and responses to any questions were both clear and prompt. I was greeted by their friend Laura who was very friendly and welcoming. Laura explained the in and outs of this studio. It's a great studio with a lift to the 3rd floor. Not big, but super functional and I can say for the first time I had everything I needed. I cannot think of anything I would change. Very clean were the hosts seem to have thought of everything! The sofa bed was firm just the way I like it and I slept very well. Their is good air con which was needed in hotter than expected May weather. There is a blackout aluminium shutter as well which made sleeping a bit later in the day after some big vodkas much easier. The WiFi is super fast and worked without a hitch.
There is a small compact kitchen with two of those quick heating electric hobs, a small fridge, toaster and microwave. I even cooked an evening meal one evening. There was always very hot water in a clean functional shower bathroom. Then there is its biggest star, location, location, location! It is perfect for central Madrid. You are right their in Chueca area with all the shops, supermarkets (2 less then 10 minutes away), bank ATMs and the eclectic night life that runs until the wee hours, at your fingertips. Gran via and all its big name stores is about a 10 minute walk away. The tourist sites are not that far either and can also be accessed via the Metro where there are several nearby stations.
If you come from the airport and use the Metro I recommend getting off at Tribunal Station and walking straight down Fuencarrel as the Apts street is just off Fuencarrel. It is about a 10 minute easy walk to the apt. Easy with google maps although I know central Madrid well and found it unaided. A tip with the front grated entry is to slightly wiggle the key out and turn clockwise then it will open. They have a great locking arrangement which means you cannot lock yourself out. It is very secure and I felt at ease in the studio and with the area.
Like all big cities keep your eyes open and valuables safe. Opportunistic thieving of mobile/cell phones is not uncommon and watch out for them (and wallets and purses) on any public transport. A local friend "lost" his mobile phone while I was there on a crowded bus. Madrid is one of the safest capital cities in Europe but always good not to make yourself a target. My final comment is if you would find the very visible LGBT community in the area uncomfortable I would not stay there. It is not an area for the narrow minded. Brilliant stay, well done Gema and Jimmy!
La experiencia fue muy agradable, el lugar es pequeño sin embargo, tiene una ubicación maravillosa donde puedes tomar el metro o caminar, por las noches puedes descansar porque no hay mucho ruido. Gema es una excelente anfitriona.
Estuve en Madrid 6 días con mi hermana! El apartamento era todo lo que esperábamos. Un espacio pequeño, pero cómodo para dormir. Todo los servicios funcionaban tal cual se anunciaron en la página.
Estuvimos en Madrid mi pareja y yo durante 6 noches en el apartamento y todo genial. Es un estudio muy coqueto y con todo lo indispensable para que nuestros días hayan sido perfectos. Gema majisima y muy atenta con todo lo que necesitamos. Volveríamos de nuevo sin dudarlo.
Jimmy and Gema's Chueca studio is in a prime location and perfect for those that want to get to know Madrid by foot. The studio is in the heart of Chueca with a bunch of great food and night life around. It's near 3 metro stops but you can walk to all the major sites: all the museums, the palace, Plaza Mayor, Plaza Cibeles, and Retiro. Jimmy and Gema are also wonderful hosts. I had to check in a day later than expected because of a flight cancellation and Gema was extremely sweet and accommodating. The studio is very cozy and has everything you could ever need. There is a small lift to take you up and down with your luggage. The only thing is opening the downstairs gate can be a little tricky, there seems to be a method. My only complaint is that I didn't stay longer.
The reservation was canceled 13 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.
