Creative and cosy flat in Madrid!

The Space

Hablamos español | We speak english | Parliamo italiano | Wir sprechen deutsch | Parlem catalá

Welcome to Madrid!

After 10 minutes walking from the Atocha station or freshly jumped out of the Metro( line 3 or 1) in just one or two minutes by walk you'll reach the 40mq apartament, located in an antique typical spanish yard.
We offer you a comfortably-sized studio for one up to two guests with clean look and fresh decor.
We also hosted small families with a toddler for no extra-cost.

Living area, open fully equipped kitchen, bathroom with shower, dressing room with closet, cozy double bed in attic, reachable with wood stairs.

Note that the building has no elevator.
But the flat is at the first floor so honestly is not that big deal!

About US:
We are a musician and a designer truly and deep in love with Madrid.
Miguel is born in the sunny Mallorca, he's based in Madrid since ten years, professionally working as music perfomer and composer, crossing the line between vintage jazz, swing, improvisation and popular folks music. He plays chess, he collects old music instruments and he knows (quite) every concert hall in town.
Iaia is based since 8 years in Madrid where she works as graphic designer and freelance photographer. She's a foodie for passion, probably because of the italian blood, she collects herbs and spices, nail polishes and toy camaras. She is a craftholic and DIY philosopher.

Other Things to Note

The flat is right in the heart of LAVAPIÉS, the most bohemien area of Madrid with a popular and cosmopolitan atmosphere.
If you're looking for a real Madrid vibe you should take the chance to stay here around.
We live since years in the district and we perfectly know every corner, every secret of this “barrio”.

It is a perfect stay!
If you're into the cultural mood the famous big museums family of Madrid is a short walk from here. Just to mention a few: Reina Sofia, Prado, Thyssen and Caixa Forum, plus a lot of cool galleries. They all will be waiting for you to overwhelm your arty soul.
You won't be missing the opportunity to find the perfect vintage souvenir at the sunday fleamarket, the Rastro, a must-see in town.

You' ll find yourself surrounded by a friendly multicultural neighbourhood, where you can find sunny terraces to taste international cuisine and tea bars but also a few cults of the tapas spanish offer and nice spots to hang around during the night.
Plus, you will be:
1 tube stop from Sol
2 stops from Gran Via.
But remember: in Madrid is all about walking up and down the hills:) So just try to forget the metro and exploring the town, you will be 15 minutes walking from any other central barrio: Huertas/Tribal/Malasaña/Chueca.

Overall Guest Satisfaction
Check In
  • The apartment was very clean, very cute, and bigger than expected. Getting in and out of the apartment was super easy, and Miguel was very helpful. We loved the apartment and our stay went really well. I loved the neighborhood that the apartment was in, but be aware that it's not very tourist-oriented. But the food, atmosphere, and personality to the neighborhood were great. It also acts as a great jumping off point towards the national palace, puerto sol, and retiro park

  • Miguel and Iaia were great hosts, very communicative and informative. The flat is peaceful and in a perfect part of town for exploring. We would definitely recommend it for a stay in Madrid.

    July 2014
  • My stay was in June 2014. I only briefly met Iaia, who was very accommodating of our earlier than ideal arrival time.

    The apartment is clean and has a very nice kitchen. Everything needed to cook a good meal was present, minus of course the ingredients.

    I had no difficulty finding the building even fresh off of a transatlantic flight. It is very near to the metro.

    The abundance of good food in the neighborhood, including vegetarian/vegan options, was a pleasant surprise.

    The apartment is a great place to stay in Madrid. I only wish I could have stayed longer.

  • The cozy and colourful appartment in probably the most lively and brisk quarter of Madrid. Great location, great facilities and a great atmosphere. It was our perfect combination to enjoy a few days in Madrid. All the good stuff (to do, to see, to eat and drink) is on walking distance or easy to reach with public transport. Laia and Miguel were great hosts. I think the appartment and quarter reflects their personalities!

    June 2014
  • Haben uns sehr wohl gefüllt. Wir wurden sehr nett empfangen. Wohnung liegt sehr Zentral und entsprach voll den Angaben. Werde die Wohnung weiter empfehlen und komme gerne wieder.

    June 2014
  • This apartment was cozy and adorable. Miguel and Iaia were very helpful with all our questions and the guide they've created for guests was very useful. The apartment was in a great central location so that we could walk pretty much everywhere but the metro was just around the corner in the event we needed it! Would absolutely stay here again.

    June 2014
  • We stayed 4 nights in May 2014 at Angel & Laia's place, were very happy and would stay there again. The place is very central and easy walking to all the attractions in central Madrid. Also, it is literally 1 minute to walk to a supermarket, taxi stands, subway station, and cafe. The apartment is off the street at the back of an inner courtyard and was very quiet during our stay. There's a steep ladder to the bed, so don't enjoy too much vino or you'll sleep on the couch instead...

    May 2014
  • We arrived at noon when we've been welcomed by Iaia and Miguel. They are very kind hosts.

    They have a very nice and cosy place in the middle of a cool quarter of Madrid. I can recommend the place.

  • Muy correcto todo, genial si te vas a mover por Lavapies

    May 2014
  • Avec une amie j'ai séjourné 3 nuits dans l'appartement de Iaia & Miguel et tout était parfait. L'appartement se trouve dans un superbe quartier! Les principales attractions sont accessibles à pieds et beaucoup de jolies terrasse se trouvent dans les alentours. L'appartement est propre, charmant et accueillant. Il se trouve dans un joli bâtiment et est équipé de tout ce qui peut être nécessaire pour un court séjour (fabuleuse guide touristique, linge, shampoo, café !). Bravo à Iaia&Miguel!!! : )
