About this listing
Lovely one-bedroom apartment located in the vibrant Lavapiés district. You are walking distance from Puerta del Sol, Plaza Mayor, La Latina, Gran Via, Huertas, El Rastro, great restaurants, nightlife and everything else in the center of Madrid!
Apartment has high-speed internet and long-use water heater. You can easily reach the Prado, Reina Sofia and Thyssen museums as well as Retiro Park. Well-connected to public transport via the blue line (Tirso de Molina), the green line (La Latina) and the yellow line (Lavapies); they are all within a five-minute walk. There are also several supermarkets close by should you decide to cook and enjoy a nice meal in. Very easy to reach from Barajas airport via airport shuttle or metro and Atocha train station (three metro stops away).
Please note, the apartment has an older fridge which makes noise on and off when it's cooling; a couple of people have mentioned this in their feedback. The kitchen does have a door, so if the noise from the fridge is bothering you, you can just close the door to keep the noise out of a living room and the bedroom.

Interaction with guests
I want my guests to have an amazing time in Madrid, so during your stay please contact me at any time and I'll provide you with what you need, be it directions to monuments, restaurant recommendations or anything else. All I ask of my guests is for them to be respectful of the neighbors as well as not smoke in the apartment.
I look forward to welcoming you to Madrid. Mi casa es su casa! :-D
Other things to note
As with many apartments here, heating is not central. Instead we use heaters and the apartment has two large ones. When I lived in the apartment it was plenty and heated the place up quickly. I also put down carpet in the winter months to provide insulation as I want to make sure you are nice and cozy.
All I ask if for guests to be respectful and leave the apartment in the condition they found it in. This means taking out the trash, washing dirty dishes in the sink and throwing away food. While it has only happened a few of times in many years of hosting I have to ask it here: Please clean up after yourself. In the words of J Lo, I ain't your mama hahaha. And thank you to the 98% of people who already know this.
