Perfectly situated apartment to discover Madrid, and located in one of the most animated and wellknown neighbourhoods: Malasaña. A few minutes walk to other main areas like Gran Via, Sol, Plaza Mayor and Paseo del Prado (also known as the museum street).
The accommodation is a cozy place, where you can still enjoy some elements of the old building as are the wooden beams, the balconies and the patio. It has a comfortable bedroom, living room with sofa-bed, tv, wi-fi, hi-fi, dining area, bathroom with shower and fully equipped kitchen.
The neighborhood - Malasaña - is known for its alternative scene and nightlife and many people compares it with Camden Town in London, the East Village of New York or the Bairro Alto in Lisbon.Located between Chueca and Arguelles district, Malasaña was the center of the social movement called Movida Madrileña in the 70s and 80s.
Nowadays the streets are full of people of all ages and styles, and has led in recent years all types of projects and businesses related to art, fashion and culture.

I really enjoyed my stay in Madrid at Pau and Patricia's lovely apartment. The place is the perfect size for 1-2 people comfortably, if you're staying long term, otherwise, if you're only in town for a long weekend, it could comfortably sleep up to two couples, since the futon sofa unfolds into a surprisingly comfortable second bed. The location is great, although I would generally recommend it more for younger folks, because Malasaña is known for its fun and lively night scene, so it can get a bit loud during the evening and (on the weekends) into the early morning. Personally, I enjoyed the lively environment and I found that after closing the shutters and (if you're a light sleeper, keeping earplugs handy) I was able to sleep soundly every night. The metro stop is extremely close, as is a convenient taxi stand, but I found that this location allowed me to walk almost everywhere I wanted to go in the city. There is a decent-sized supermarket, and a bunch of smaller markets, convenience stores, pharmacy, and most importantly a great coffee shop (Toma Cafe) all very close by. The apartment itself has a fully stocked kitchen - stove, oven, microwave, etc. - so it's nice to have the option to cook at home on occasion while you're there. The neighbors in the building are quiet and friendly. And Pau was great! I didn't get a chance to meet his wife Patricia, but Pau was incredibly kind and helpful from start to finish. He responded to all of my emails promptly, went above and beyond by meeting me at the apartment, to check in, quite early on a Sunday morning - which I really appreciated after a red eye flight from the U.S. Pau gave me enough space to let me feel at home in the apartment, but he also made sure to send emails regularly, checking to ensure I was enjoying my stay, which I appreciated. He worked around my schedule, made sure there were extra sheets and towels for when my mom came to visit, and offered some great recommendations of places to go and things to do in Madrid. I absolutely recommend staying at Pau and Patricia's apartment!
Wir wurden von Pau sehr freundlich begrüßt, die Schlüsselübergabe war absolut unkompliziert, obwohl wir nach 22.00 Uhr angekommen sind. Die Wohnung ist genauso wie auf den Fotos angezeigt: hübsch, ausgesprochen sauber und freundlich eingerichtet. Für vier Personen reicht der Platz aus. Die Wohngegend fanden wir super: lebendig, voller Bars und Cafés und kleiner Läden. Auch die Sehenswürdigkeiten konnten wir von der Wohnung aus komplett zu Fuß machen. Wir würden jederzeit wiederkommen!
La experiencia ha sido inmejorable, Pau y Patricia nos han dado facilidades para todo y el apartamento esta muy bien, y muy limpio. No emos tenido ningun problema y si lo hubieramos tenido, son una pareja muy atenta. No era nuestro caso, pero si es tu primera o de las primeras veces que visitas Madrid, dejan mucha informacion que viene muy bien.
My wife had a fantastic stay at Pau’s apartment for more that a month. He was so attentive with us asking us how everything was going and if we needed something. The apartment is very cute, nicely decorated, everything works very well (e.g. the heating) and is located in Malasana really close to the Tribunal underground station.
The location was fantastic. Malasana is a great place to stay when you visit Madrid, is right in the centre with fantastic transport options.
I would highly recommend you to stay in this apartment.

Calla Fuencarral is just 5min away from the apartment where you can enjoy the shopping experience!

Hemos estado encantados en el apatamento, cama comodísima, cocina y baño limpios y nuevos, mucha luz en la casa, exactamente igual que en las fotos. Pau ha sido muy amable y nos dejo un montón de detalles en la casa como café, filtros, gel, champú, pasta de dientes...
Situado en un sitio inmejorable, con todos los servicios al lado, mucho ambiente,... Eso sí, una recomendación: hay bares debajo así que está bien tener unos tapones a mano si vais a ir pronto a la cama!
Muchas gracias por todo!! Repetiremos!! :0)
Me and my girlfriend lived in this apartment for, approximately, two months and a half. It was an amazing experience. I wish we were still there.
The apartment couldn't be better located: it's near supermarkets, shops, bars, coffeeshops and restaurants. The street has life. It's lively. Beautiful. There's always people walking. Although it's located in Malasaña and very crowded at night on the weekends, the noise is not so loud as to bother. If you don't want to hear the street sounds, just close the windows and the noise is blocked almost completely. That surprised me, and it was a good surprise.
The period i spent there i could enjoy not only the famous Malasaña nightlife at the weekends, but also the ordinary day-to-day neighborhood life: buy things at the little shops (just under the building, or in front of it), greet people at the street and breathe the tranquility that exists on the day-to-day life. It's like it is a little village inside a big city.
Furthermore, the apartment is spacious - even bigger than in the photos -, well divided, colorful and very well equipped, with all the utensils one might need. The shower, unlike other apartments i have rented in the past, does not get cold if you stay too long in a hot bath. The water, effortlessly, remains heated.
The owner of the apartment, Pau, since the beginning was always available, gentle, attentive and helpful. Whenever we asked for help, he always answered us very quickly. At our last day at the apartment, he even gave us farewell gifts.
Finally, there is nothing to complain about. I recommend it to everyone. I hope that in the future i will have the opportunity to enjoy the apartment other times. I will come back for sure. Thanks for everything, Pau. :)

Hi! We're a couple with 2 children. We like to share time with friends & family. We also like to take advantage of Madrid cultural offer, spend time in the mountains nearby and travelling abroad, of course (here the list can be quite big. I will mention only a few countries where we have spend several weeks/months: Holland, UK, Ireland, Finland, Belgium, USA, Mexico, Argentina, Brasil, Costa Rica, Marruecos,,...). For 8 years now, we have been renting a rural house in a lovely little village, one hour away from Madrid (La Posada de Yelamos) with a lot of good references from customers.
Now that we have had to move to a bigger place to accomodate our growing family, we have decided renting our nice, cozy apartment right in the city center, in the cheerful Malasaña neighbourhood. We hope you enjoy it as much as we have done. We are looking forward to meeting you!.
