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.
Alvaro was the perfect host! He welcomed us with a warm and friendly introduction to his gorgeous apartment. He also gave us some excellent recommendations for our short stay. He included snacks and a beautiful bottle of wine. Alvaro's apartment is in the most amazing neighbourhood and is close to everything Madrid has to offer. The apartment is the perfect amount of space decorated by beautiful art and photos. Giving Alvaro's apartment 5 stars just doesn't seem enough! Wish we could have stayed longer!
Álvaro is a fantastic host! Incredibly nice, welcoming and super helpful. We asked him what to do and where to go and he sat with us and wrote down a ton of suggestions on how to experience the most of Madrid. The apartment is spacious and comfortable, with great A/C. We had pastries and a fridge full of snacks in a little kitchenette. Our stay at this location was ideal! The apartment is within walking distance of all the main attractions. No more than 20 minutes walk to see all of the main sights. It's in a quiet little enclave, with a lot of cool shops around where you can get a coffee or a bite to eat before being on your way. We felt right at home!
Great appartment, wonderful location and the most warm and welcoming host! Malasana is an excellent area and Alvaro gave us great tips about the neighbourhood. Will definitely come back!
Alvaro oli uskomattoman hyvä isäntä ja paikka on aivan upea! Asunto on trendikkäällä alueella ja ympäristössä on lukuisia loistavia tapas- ja pintxo-paikkoja, terasseja, ravintoloita ja aamiaispaikkoja. Metrolla on tarvittaessa helppo liikkua ja matka lentokentän välillä taittuu 30€:lla.
Alvaro otti meidät sydämellisesti vastaan ja esitteli parhaimmat paikat merkiten ne samalla antamaansa karttaan. Asunnossa oli meitä varten kaikki tarvittava punaviiniä, aamiaistarvikkeita, suihkupipoa jne. myöten. Emme olisi voineet parempaa vastaanottoa toivoa! Alvaro jopa hoiti meille taksin valmiiksi lähtöaamullemme :)
Suuret kiitokset Alvaro ja toivottavasti nähdään pian!
Alvaro is by far the best Airbnb host I've ever had in the 4 years I've been using this service!! He accepted our booking request at 11pm the night before our arrival. He welcomed us with a bottle of cold sangria, pastries, fruits, and coffee. His studio is absolutely beautiful. Clean, cozy, and well decorated. He even brought a map to show us where the main things were located and he helped us plan our day. We loved the neighborhood and the location was perfect. I would most definitely recommend staying at Alvaro's place. Thanks for everything and we hope to see you again soon :)
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.
