  • I stayed here for 4 nights. The apartment is fantastic. The living room has two large doors/windows that face the streets and make for great ventilation on a warm summers day. Despite only having a single bedroom, there is plenty of room, and it is fitted with everything you need.

    The location is great too. It's a very short walk away from a Metro station, and has 3 supermarkets very close by. Not to mention a plaza filled with eateries, and coffee shops.

    Jose was understanding and very helpful. I'm not sure how much english he speaks, but he was able to understand my broken spanish so for that alone he gets extra points.

    If I find myself in Madrid again, I would consider staying here again.

  • "My friend and I spent an amazing days in this house. Jose's flat is stunning. Beautiful period features with fantastic facilities.
    Our staying was really nice. This house is very well located in Madrid, charming, nicely decorated.
    The photos can tell the beauty of the place itself, but cannot tell how welcoming, helping and extremely friendly Jose.
    Jose is a wonderful host, very nice and helpful and we felt safe and taken care of.
    Anyway this is definitely an address to remember.
    We would not hesitate one second to return to the Jose’s Apartament.
    A big thank you to him!

  • perfecto!

  • This was and is my first airbnb experience and at first I was apprehensive.

    Jose's place in Madrid wiped away any doubts I had. Communicating with him was so efficient and he was so quick to respond to any questions we may have had

    Location: Perfect. His house is literally a minute or so away from the Tirso-de Molina Metro stop. This area is super central to everything! And I mean everything.
    Plaza Mayor : 10 plus min walk
    Cava Baja: tapas row is 10 min walk
    Puerta de Sol : 10 min walk
    Atocha Renfe 15 min walk or 5 min Metro
    You get te point everything is near buy

    Mercados (grocery stores) around the corner. Local line am restaurants 1 min away The area is very lovely but I slept like a log.

    The apartment is super clean and on the 1st floor (second) the bed I. The desperate bedroom was very comfortable and the couch bed my friend slept on was equally comfortable. It's a very user friendly and nice place to stay. We adored the kitchen and the access to a washing machine which we used and dried our clothes the madreleno way in front of one of the many gorgeous balconies. Te bathroom is very modern an unjust loved our entry way and beautiful hard wood floors. The living room was fewer and enough space for us to do yoga. Nice tv and two spectacular balconies over looking the Main Street "Calle Magdelena" and the side street. There is a theater across the street that is currently showing a Russian balet.

    The area is very diverse and far enough away from Lavapies even though the area was nice and clean to me. One thing I noticed is that the streets get cleaned overnight which means they take pride in their neighborhood

    Jose exceeded our expectations and was a gentleman. If ever in Madrid I will definitely be staying at his place again. It felt like home and I felt like a local !! Do yourself a favor and book this place. You will be so thankful that you did! Wonderful introduction to Airbnb and Madrid!

    Thanks Jose

  • We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Jose's apartment! The apartment is very close to the metro and it's located in a fantastic walking friendly neighborhood which seemed very safe. The apartment itself is very clean, comfortable and had everything we needed. Jose was very easy to communicate with and was very quick to respond to any emails. Despite our booking being very last minute, Jose had no problems in accommodating our request and making sure our stay was a comfortable one. Next time we are in Madrid, we won't hesitate to stay at Jose's lovely apartment again!

  • We had a great stay at Jose's apartment. Jose was very helpful and quick to respond when I asked questions, and gave me great options on getting from the airport to the apartment. The location was great - extremely close to the Tirso de Molina metro stop, and other than going to/from the airport we did not need to use the metro as everything else we wanted to see was within walking distance of the apartment. The apartment itself was very clean and cozy, and equipped with everything we needed, even a hairdryer which was appreciated. There was quite a bit of street noise, but we were staying over a weekend so it is to be expected, and it really didn't bother us or affect our sleep. All in all I would definitely recommend staying at Jose's, and would stay again if we make it back to Madrid!

  • Jose was quick to respond to messages and helpful with directions from the airport. The apartment was very well-located - most places are walkable - and very clean, so good value.

    There were a few niggles, such as no sheets being provided for my father on the first night (despite a supplement being taken for two-person occupancy) and the hot water in the shower running out very quickly in the morning, but both these were resolved. Also don't plan to do any elaborate self catering as the kitchen is somewhat erractically-equipped: although there are saucepans and a colander, there is no corkscrew*, no tin opener and not a single kitchen knife!

    Street noise can be quite disturbing if you are a light sleeper, so it's worth taking earplugs.

    *(Actually there is a corkscrew now as my father bought one and left it in the kitchen.)

  • Jose was amazing ... second only to his perfect apartment which was shockingly beautiful and spotless in cleanliness. Any question you had was quickly responded to and no detail was overlooked. The location of this apartment was also excellent and within walking distance to museums, shopping areas, restaurants, and many of the great buildings of Madrid. If the apartment is available on the dates you need to visit Madrid, grab it! Five (5) stars out of 5.
