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.
We were upset because we had to wait an hour for a friend of a friend of the host to show up to let us into the apartment after we had traveled on an overnight flight from New York. The apartment itself was very nice and comfortable. A/C worked, bed was comfortable and shower had good pressure. Neighborhood was a little sketchy but metro access was steps away and it was easy to travel about Madrid.
We highly recommend this apartment! It was a fantastic location, which puts the metro and other conveniences at your fingertips! Overlooking the Lavapies plaza, which is a vibrant and social area of Madrid. The apartment itself was immaculate, very tidy and well-renovated. WHEN I come back to Madrid, I will stay here again!
Claudia met us at the apartment on the first day. The apartment is modern and clean and recently refurbished. The Lavapies local area is lively and full of lots of cultures. The apartment is in a great location which was our launchpad for exploring Madrid each day. The local recommendations were great, too. Our fave things to do were the Madrid Tapas Tour (not the cheapest, but it was well worth it) and the gardens near the Prado. Thanks for a lovely stay Israel & Claudia ;)
Israel's apartment is very convenient. The location is good, being next to Argumosa street and a short walk to everywhere else. The plaza the Lavapies is what they call "multicultural" with a mixed of races and countries. You'll see the police around but it's actually a safe place to be.
The apartment is small but it's got all you need, specially for a couple, short rentals or a quick visit to madrid.
It's a first floor with no lift and that, for me (with a pram) was a bit tiring, but if not, not a problem.
The apartment has got everything you need, from kitchen basics to cooking things you won't need to buy for a couple of days, I even found honey for my child's cough!! Thanks.
Great to have shampoo as well as I forgot my own. Much better than those hotel miniatures by the way!!
The place is clean and modern. The bed is comfortable and the shower fantastic, the pressure much better than in my house!! I'll miss it!
Thanks to Paz as well for her help with the bags.
Ottima accoglienza e pulizia dell'appartamento. Molto vicino alle zone più importanti da visitare e facilmente raggiungibile. Israel e Maripaz (la sua collaboratrice) sono stati sempre molto disponibili e cortesi. Sicuramente un'ottimo appartamento dove soggiornare a Madrid!!!
This was our first experience with Airbnb and it was 100% positive. We did not meet Israel but Paz met us and answered all our questions. She was very kind & helpful. The apartment was just as described and was very clean. All essentials were there. The neighbourhood was amazing. Lots of tapas bars & restaurants.. Very multicultural and very friendly. Easy walk to Attocha and museums and metro stop on the corner for exploring the rest of Madrid Highly recommended. We loved it.
it was a very good experience, welcoming (with a bottle of rioja), good arrangement to receive us, and place is tidy, clean with a good sense of style. a multi-national food culture in the neighborhood, and probably the next trendiest place in old madrid town, as a plus, you can walk to all the sightseeing places with just few extra minutes.
