Interaction with Guests
I am a photographer and I previously used the space as my photographic studio. I have recently converted it to be used as a self catering apartment yet you will be able to sense how this wonderful space is definitely special! My own apartment, where I life, is next floor, so I am always available if there is anything you need or if you have any question.
The apartment is located right in the middle of Madrid's central district in what is known as Madrid's Soho ( MALASAÑA neighborhood ). One block away from the busy San Ildefonso square. This is without a doubt one of the trendiest, most exciting areas of this incredibly vibrant city. The area has innumerable shops, bars, cafes, restaurants, galleries, theaters, etc literally at your doorstep.
The building is a protected historical building from 1890, in a lovely small street boasting heaps of character! The space is very bright and sunny and even though it's centrally located it is very quiet and peaceful.
Very well connected with the airport, the Tribunal metro station is less than 5 minutes walk from the studio.
The apartment's privileged central location will allow you to walk to most of Madrid's tourist attractions. However, if you want to use the metro, you have a variety of underground stations at minutes walk - Tribunal, Chueca, Bilbao and Gran Via stations are the closest.
Non smoking. No pets.
A truly fantastic, spacious and cool apartment! Centrally located and within easy walking distance of Gran Via, and the many restaurants and bars which the area has to offer. A few minutes walk in any direction would take you into the vibrant hipster neighbourhood of open air plazas and street art.
Alvaro was a great and considerate host. He met us on arrival and made some suggestions as to what to do and see all over the city, as well as booked an early cab (5am!) for us on the day of departure.
I would highly recommend staying here and will definitely be back. Still so much to see and do in Madrid! :)
Alvaro was great. The apartment was clean and nice. It was quiet despite being in a very lively area.
Nous avons été chaleureusement accueillis - Alvaro avait carrément prévu tout ce qu'il faut pour nos petits déjeuners, et il nous a même offert une bouteille de vin un prime. Il faut surtout profiter de ses conseils pour les sorties, nous avons adoré ce qu'il nous a recommandé en bars et restaurants. L'appartement est très mignon, c'est un grand studio sous les toits, au coeur du quartier Malasaña, agréablement décoré, super propre, calme, avec climatisation et plein de charme. Nous avons passés un excellent weekend. Merci mille fois!
I loved my stay at Alvaro's apartment. I felt like a local, and it was so comfortable to come home to for a siesta after a long day walking around. The apartment is a great size, very clean, quiet, nice shower, with a few little nice treats left from Alvaro. The location was perfect - in the trendy neighbourhood of Malasana with many great bars and nice vibes right outside the door. It was also a nice short stroll (20 mins) to all of the main sights. Alvaro was a great host and recommended bars, cafes and galleries that I should visit. It was nice to have a local's input! I'd definitely recommend this place.
This was a great place to stay. Alvara makes you feel really welcome and spent a long time going through places to eat and things to see, showing us on a map where abouts to go to see the best things in Madrid. Everything was as described, and the flat was very comfortable. It was especially nice having a fridge with the essential things and a bottle of wine :-) The shower was great - it was also really useful having all the esential toiletries, espeically for flying with hand luggage! The flat was very quiet despite being in a busy area. The location was really good for walking to anywhere in central madrid and was near a metro stop if you needed. I would definitely recommend this to anyone going to Madrid. Thank you Alvaro!
I had such an enjoyable stay at Alvaro's place. What a warm and friendly welcome from Alvaro when I arrived. We had a lovely chat and Alvaro gave me some good tips and took his time to explain things to me, looking at the map.
The flat is in a outgoing area : so many things to do. For eating : downstairs restaurant is really nice; Orio for delicious pinchos is a must as well. It is so easy to visit madrid from Alvaro's place: by foot , the metro, bicycle... So accessible from the airport: metro. In the evening I could relax after a long day watching a good recent film. This flat is like a cocoon where you can relax, chill out and get some energy back. I recommend Alvaro's flat when visiting Madrid.
Lovely spacious, bright studio. Great location. 5 mins from metro. Most sights within walking distance! Alvaro was the perfect host. Gave great recommendations on where to eat and drink. After I returned on my first day (when thunderstorms rolled in), I found an umbrella on my doorstop! Such a kind man. When I return, I will look to come back to Alvaros.
