About this listing
Enjoy our apartment, completely new and equipped, right in the Plaza de Lavapiés. Bright, cozy and design. Perfect for 2 persons, with 2 atmospheres and 2 balconies facing the square. In the very center of Madrid, you’ll have the city close at hand.
In a building of the 1900’s, we have kept the charm of the antique combined with a modern and functional design. We take care of every single detail to make our guests feel like home.
With A/C (essential in the Madrilenian summer), heating with adjustable temperature, perfectly isolated. WI-FI, TV, fully equipped kitchen, w/m, iron, hair dryer…everything you may need!
The neighborhood of Lavapiés is one of the most antique, centric and genuine in Madrid and is in continuous ebullience!
It offers all kind of activities from morning till night. Cutting-edge and alternative art and culture centers, theaters, cuisine of the world, markets, shops, tapas bars, cocktail bars, and people, people of any shape and color.
If you like to walk, pleasantly roaming you’ll be in a few minutes in Puerta del Sol, Plaza Mayor, Paseo del Pardo where all the main museums are, in the “castizo” market of “El Rastro”. If you prefer the Metro it’s just in front of the house. Also in 10 minutes walk you reach the Atocha train station that connects you to other cities around Madrid or in Spain.
Smoking is only allowed in the balconies. The house keeping rules, that apply to the apartment, are the same that each of us would apply to our own place: Respect the neighbours, keep the apartment and the common areas as clean as you find them. If arriving late (after 22h), an extra fee of 20€ will be charged and this is to be paid at arrival to the apartment.
Place is just how it looks. Clean and well decorated. Lots going on around, especially at night and close to everything, including subway. Host provided a package with lots of info including maps which I thought was nice and helpful.
Would come back here for sure!
I really enjoyed my stay at Israel's place. The apartment was tidy and the location was great. I would definitely stay there again!
The apartment was just as the photos show; very clean, nice and detail oriented. The neighborhood is my favorite in Madrid with everything a person needs to 'pasarlo bien' (restaurants, bars, supermarket) and only a 10 minute walk to Sol. Paz, the caretaker, met me at the apartment early because my flight landed earlier than expected and showed me everything. I paid online, which was nice and easy and Israel sent me a portfolio with information about the apartment, neighborhood, and Madrid.
it was all very nice! clean and well decorated studio in a central location. everything in the apartment is really good and it is the right place to check out madrid for a couple of days or even longer … the size is perfect for two and the bathroom is pretty cool.
The apartment is in an EXCELLENT location by so many "non-touristy" things. Waking up every morning and walking through Lavapies felt very welcoming because after a day the same shopkeepers kept on saying hello. The neighborhood is very culturally mixed and it was very cool being able to interact with the neighbors each evening as the entire neighborhood came into the plaza to enjoy an evening meal at one of the numerous restaurants. The interior of the apartment is just as pictured, and Paz made the check-in a breeze. The only thing I can recommend is to go to every place Israel recommends to eat. They're off the tourist map, and excellent. Thank you for a wonderful time and take care!
Israel's apartment was incredibly comfortable, charming, had every amenity, and was covenient to everything in the old city. I would highly recommend it to any visitor.
Fantastic apartment, in a very interesting (in a good way) part of Madrid.
Within walking distance to all the main sights, or if traveling the metro is literally 50 metres away.
The apartment was perfect for our needs, with a great shower, and plenty of room.
Paz met us on time, showed us around, and left us to our own devises.
Israel sent thru detailed info a couple of weeks before our visit which was greatly appreciated, and used.
If you like coffee, go Cafelito..excellent!
A round an excellent airbnb experience.
