About This Listing
Compact and functional studio in Chamberí (quiet and classy center of Madrid). Is located in the first flat of a modern building and oriented to a roundabout. 5 minutes walk to 4 subway stops(Canal, Alonso Cano, Iglesia, Quevedo).15 min walk to Sol.
TV, and a bench that many times is used as table for eating while you see the tv or invite friends to the studio
This studio is perfect for one student or profesional that want to live Madrid for some weeks or months.
The studio is very convinient and perfectly located very close to 4 underground stops and in a walk of the crowded centre. Chamberí is a french style neigbourhood from XIX century. Wide steets and full of commercial activity, terraces and restaurants in the bottom of the buildings.
The Studio consists of one double real bed and a double sofa bed both very confortable.
All the furniture in the flat is new, also the electronic devices, kitchen and bathroom decorated in a modern flat style with nuances of geography and music, my two loves.
The building is from early 90´s. Has central heating, so is warm everytime and has a big window to the roundabout Glorieta of Alvarez de Castro from where you can observe the neighbourhood and the shops below.
The access from the airport is cheap (3 eur per person) in underground (metro) this is the route(45 minutes of estimated time):
-In the airport take LINE8 of metro(the colour is pink)
-When you arrive NUEVOS MINISTERIOS change to LINE 10 until the next stop GREGORIO MARAÑON
- Once in GREGORIO MARAÑON take LINE 7(the colour is orange) and one stop after you are in ALONSO CANO or two after CANAL both of them at 3 minutes walk from the STUDIO
Taxi is faster 20 minutes but may cost around 40 euros.
OTHER UNDERGROUND STOPS very useful and near to the studio are IGLESIA and QUEVEDO with line 1 and 2 of metro, that conects you to every touristic and working place in the city from north to south through the center

Diego's private studio was perfect and met all my expectations. I decided last minute to stay a couple days in Madrid for work, and I booked this through the "instant book" function - eg when you just book it straight away and it's yours, perfect for last minutes. It was neat, clean, relatively well situated (between the old Centro and where my company's office is). Diego was also super easy to communicate with and flexible - he was there less than 5 minutes after I told him I was in front of the apartment.
Firstly, we booked the place for two weeks for 60 USD a night ( crazily over priced for a matchbox sized apartment - which is not apparent from the pictures). One day after we made the payment, the host Diego dropped the price by more than 30% but refused to give us a discount. When we arrived there, the house was a mess despite being told it was cleaned. The bed sheets were horrible. Worst of the lot was the shower which was perennially clogged. There was no ventilation and its bloody hot in the summer. We couldn't take it beyond a week and decided to move to a hotel. As per the cancellation policy, we should have received a 50 percent refund. But Diego did not accept the cancellation and said he did not know the details of the policy he himself had signed up for. Furthermore when we tried to ask airbnb for a resolution, he provided then with fake messages claiming we didn't leave early. While we are still requesting airbnb to investigate further, I would not recommend any apartment listed by this host.
You break the fridge and the cleaning service needed hours for clean the space, even mantainance like the sofa and the fan was torn. I gave you everything perfect and as listed.
I advise you to plan better your trip and acept the terms and conditions and not trying to earn money of others doing blackmail and destroying things
El piso anunciado no fue el piso cuyas llaves se me entregaron. El piso en el que me quedé era mucho más antiguo, más deteriorado y daba a un patio interior, no a la calle. El anfitrión alegó por whatsapp que se trataba de una confusión pero la explicación no me resultó muy convincente. Como estaba en Madrid con prisa por asuntos profesionales y el otro piso no se liberaba en teoría hasta la ultima noche de mi estancia preferí no tener problemas. No vi al anfitrión en persona en ningún momento: me abrió la señora de la limpieza, y el último día no pasó a recoger las llaves y a dar una explicación sobre lo ocurrido.
Todo muy bien. Diego super amable y el apartamento correcto en muy buena zona
Great place to stay . Really close of 3 Subway . Just few block away from really good place to visit. The neighborhood was very Nice and safe .
The flat is small but cosy, really good Bed, tv , wifi , Great bathroom
We just meet Diego once for the Keys but he was always available by phone .
I recommed this place for enjoy your stay in Madrid :)
The reservation was canceled the day before arrival. This is an automated posting.
Diego was a fantastic host. Despite our stay taking place during the holidays, he was always contactable if we had any worries or queries. He is also very accommodating. The appartment is small but a good size for the two of us. It was clean, tidy and we felt at home. The area is very quiet at night and offers easy access to central Madrid.
