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.
We only have good things to say about our stay in Alvaro's place. The location of the apartment is great and hip neighborhood of malasana full of restaurants and bars and super close to the shopping street which ended up being very convenient. Alvaro was very kind and helpful with tips and recommendations about what to do in Madrid. The apartment is very nice, nicely decorated and the building has great and interesting pictures taken by Alvaro himself. We had a great ti,e and we can only recommend his place.
Estudio magnifico, en un barrio madrileño con mucho encanto, Álvaro ha sido de lo más cercano, brindandote muchas facilidades , tanto a la hora de entrada y salida del aprtamento, como para cualquier sugerencia o recomendación sobre que visitar en la zona.
Cuida cada detalle al milímetro, toallas limpias, productos para la ducha y una nevera llena de fruta y cosas pra el desayuno! Un placer, seguro que repetiremos!
We had a great stay at Alvaro's studio. A very warm & welcoming host, the fridge was stocked full of goodies and Álvaro took the the time to explain the apartment and the surrounding area when we first arrived.
The location is very convenient, we walked everywhere and the metro is within 10minutes walk. Quite a few nice places to eat around the apartment also. Highly recommend, thank you for making our stay in Madrid a memorable one!
From the moment we booked online Alvaro was nothing but helpful. Check in was smooth and Alvaro took lots of time to give recommendations and mark a map for us. He is also very interesting to chat with. The apartment wins the award for most stylish airbnb we have stayed in. It has all the amenities you would ever need and then some. He left us with fruit, water, coffee, tea, cookies, snacks, wine and milk. The apartment is ideally located in a very nice neighborhood with great restaurants and bars. It is very safe and you will see tons of people out well into the late hours. You are also close proximity to all tourist attractions. The location of the apartment, while in a lively neighborhood, is very peaceful and quiet. Alvaro even arranged for a taxi to take us to the airport. I can't imagine staying anywhere else in Madrid but here!
Alvaro was an absolutely amazing host! When I arrived he took plenty of time to share with me everything about the apartment as well as his recommendations in the neighborhood and was a lifesaver when my friend accidentally took the wrong keys. The apartment is great. Lots of light and very open and modern. The only two things that were a little challenging at times were the fact that it's on the top of a five-floor walk up and there's no separation between the shower and the rest of the bathroom. But the positives more than made up for it! Alvaro left the apartment fully stocked with everything that you could need...food, wine, toothpaste, etc. The neighborhood is super-charming as well and you can walk pretty much everywhere. I'd definitely recommend.
Great studio apartment, just as shown! Great location, very central in old Madrid, and Alvaro is especially welcoming. I will stay again!
Had it not been for this wonderful apartment and this wonderful host (Alvaro), my first experience in Madrid, and my first Airbnb experience, would not have been nearly as memorable. I came to Madrid for work alone and extended my trip for a long weekend to see the sights and get a feel for the culture. The second I arrived to the apartment in the center of Madrid's artsy, fun and centrally located neighborhood Malasan'a, Alvaro very kindly sat down and told me anything I wanted to know about the city and gave me his recommendations. His hospitality is only matched by his impeccable taste, which is seen through the details in the apartment, the stocked mini-fridge, and the bottle of wine which all come included with the apartment.
The apartment is walking distance to the major attractions in Madrid (Prado, Puerta del Sol, Reina Sofía Museum, etc.). There are boutiques, cafes, restaurants very close to the apartment which are not tourists traps. These are places where locals go for a day/night out. Despite the proximity to vibrant life, the apartment is tucked away on a side street and is quiet, which was important for the light sleeper in me.
It is difficult to overstate the role that Alvaro played in my first experience in Madrid. Throughout the trip I found myself thinking "Thank God I didn't stay at a hotel!" He lives just downstairs in a large apartment and was even available by text throughout my trip if I had any questions or even wanted to talk more over coffee, etc. By the end of the trip I felt like I found a friend.
