About this listing
Beautiful,couzy and fully refurbished apartment in lavapies, a very exciting neighborhood of Madrid, the place is perfect for 2. people, very lighted and all commodities. 2 min To the metro, very quite at night.
Grocery stores, fresh food markets, cafes and other amenities within walking distance. Around the corner from the Reina Sofia museum, a short walk to the Prado museum and the Retiro park. Situated in the Lavapies, an amazing mutli-cultural and multi-generational neighborhood that is home to a number of great Senegalese, Indian as well as Spanish restaurants. Lavapies is host to a number of art galleries and independent arts organizations such as La Casa Encendida and La Tabacalera. La Tabacalera, an abandoned tobacco factory, has a DIY bike workshop, skate park, art gallery, community garden and DJ collective which spins on Sunday afternoons throughout the year. If you are interested in contemporary art, music and a vibrant community atmosphere then this is the neighborhood for you.
For those who do not be like cooking there is a service for home cooking, you can ask menus and prices! we can cook at your place and share good food and good conversation! Or speciality of course typical spanish dishes , a good example would be :
Serrano ham/ typical Spanish tortilla / spicy chorizo flambé with cider
Paella ( seafood and chicken / squid in black ink)
Strawberry tiramisù / Tradicional tiramisù and of course unlimited sangria!!!
Also I have arranged prices with a renting bike shop in Madrid, ask me if you want to do this, I could get a discount!
As a complementary culinary experience we offer the possibility of undertake a 2 hrs Cooking Course on Spanish Cuisine.
The Course would cost 25€ and would explain in details how to cook proper Spanish Paella and how to make Sangria. At the end of the 2hrs course the food would be served as part of the meal.
The course would take place during dinner time and weekend
Interaction with Guests
Normally I will be present at your arrival, unless I have to go away for job or personal reasons, I am from Granada and every month I have to go at least a weekend to Granada. I love hanging out with my guests if time permits me, so I always let you choose if you are willing or not to have my company and if you like have a little cultural tour , share a beer, wine or even a crazy dancing night.
Lavapies is a vibrant neighborhood with a lot going on both day and night, have seen a very multitude of dining options, hindu, Moroccan, African, and of typical bars and taverns all Spanish regions .. you can ask me about places for tapas, or well eat like gentlemen .. there are places for everyone.But Do not forget if you want to have the party at home I have a almost professional chef to go to your house and cook!
Prima esperienza con Airbnb molto positiva. Ottima comunicazione.Appartamento come da descrizione e con tutti i (website hidden) wifi è buono ma il segnale arriva con fatica sul (website hidden) posizione è molto comoda.
Sergio hat uns in seiner Wohnung sehr freundlich und zum abgemacht Zeitpunkt begrüßt. Es ist eine kleine und gemütliche Wohnung, die Küche ist ausreichend ausgestattet und alles war sauber. Sie liegt sehr ruhig und doch zentral. Bis zur Plaza del Sol ist es nur eine Metrostation. Supermärkte, Restaurants und die Metro sind in unmittelbarer Nähe. Das tolle war, dass die Wohnung eine Klimaanlage hatte. Ich würde die Wohnung jederzeit weiterempfehlen. Danke Sergio, dass wir bei dir übernachten durften.
Didn't meet Sergio but we had a lovely stay at his place. It had everything we needed and wanted to end a long Eurotrip! His AC was perfect for the hot summer day and the whole apartment is just very comfortable and cozy.
Sergio's apartment was very cute. It had all the basic necessities and close to the main attractions. The neighborhood however is kind of sketchy if you're a girl traveling alone. We took a taxi back to the apartment because we were scared. Even the taxi driver said that area is not very safe.
We did not get the chance to meet unfortunately, but Sergio was very accommodating as he allowed for us to drop our bags off at his loft a few hours earlier than his planned check-in time! Once we dropped our bags we headed out and when we later returned Sergio was already gone but left us helpful notes on the table for us along with his number should we ever need something. The apartment was clean, pretty centrally located (10 minute walk to the shopping district which leads to the Del Prado and more), functioning A/C and fan as well as clean sheets and towels and everything we needed. Thanks again and hope to be able to stay in one of your properties again!
We really enjoyed Sergio's place for our long weekend in Madrid. It's small, but has the basics. The air conditioning was very welcome as we happened to be there during a heat wave. Sergio was friendly and responsive to our needs -- we would absolutely stay there again. The location was very central, a short walk to the Reina Sofia in one direction and the El Sol metro in another, although the Tirso de Molina stop is only a few blocks up the hill with some nice cafes on the square. The ginormous Sunday Rastro market is just a few blocks over As New Yorkers, we liked the diverse neighborhood, and it didn't seem all that different from home, but one of the shop ladies told me to hold my bag close to me. A highlight of our trip was the paella class session with Andrea -- he showed us the ins and outs of a Spanish tortilla, sangria and a lovely paella. He answered all our many questions and was particularly delightful with our 11 year old budding chef. There is a surprising collection of cooking basics and spices for such a tiny kitchen, but we didn't explore that because of the heat -- just ate leftover paella when we weren't out sampling Madrid's cafes.
