I stayed with Maria and Pablo while visiting Madrid in November 2012. The apartment was super clean and decorated beautifully. Maria has an eye for interior decor. The master bedroom is theirs, and during the stay they stayed in the guest bedroom, and I stayed in their master bedroom with a private bathroom. The bathroom was also very clean. Maria and Pablo shared many interesting aspects about Spain and the culture. It was nice to stay with English speakers as my Spanish is little. Maria is beyond helpful with details about transportation and directions. I arrived at the Atocha train station. I could not easily find the bus line to their place, so I opted for a taxi. The taxi ride was 12 minutes and a little more than 8 euros. Their place has a terrace right outside your bedroom and also an awesome roof top terrace. Both are relaxing. The apartment is located alongside a river lined with pretty trees. They were very generous and invited me to have dinner with them two nights that I was there. Breakfast is not actually prepared, but Maria is generous and tells you to help yourself to anything you want in the fridge or in kitchen (ie:bread for toast, eggs, soda, juice) It was fine like this. The wireless is easy and works perfect. The bed was wonderful and the linens were superb. The bed was made lovely and extremely comfortable. The apartment was in a very safe neighborhood, walking distance to a main mall and metro. I enjoyed staying with this worldly and kind couple.
Beautiful apartment with friendly people! The rooftop was great and the helpful advice about how to make the most of our short time in Madrid was very helpful. Definitely recommended!
Oh my gosh! This place was amazing, incredible, unbelievable..and Maria and Pablo, equally so- such kind, caring, generous, interesting people. When we arrived we had been on the road for 5 months and this was a real slice of luxury- the terraces, the chic decorations, the very comfortable bed, the big gorgeous bathroom etc etc etc! We were made to feel so much at home and welcome! We loved the chats we had with them both, they are a very beautiful and cool couple! The apartment is just down the road from the metro (which you will need as Madrid is big and also it is good to know that the metros come every few minutes), a cheap shopping market, organic store and also the air is clean and you are surrounded by parks and the river. You can walk to the Palace in 20minutes- which really is the centre of it all. We can say enough about Maria and Pablo and their place!
Staying at Maria's flat was a great experience for us. Her place is very clean, beautifully decorated and a short walk from the train station. Another great bonus was her building has a elevator. Maria was a perfect host. She went out of her way to make us feel comfortable by offering anything in her place from great food and wine to her advice on places to visit and eat while in Madrid. The rooftop terrace is also a wonderful spot to enjoy a nice evening after a long day of sightseeing. If we ever go back to Madrid I hope Maria still has a room for rent.
Maria and her husband were great hosts: very friendly and attentive and knowledgable about the city with lots of great recommendations. The flat was really lovely with lots of charm and big terraces to enjoy the sun, while they made every effort to make us feel comfortable. I'd definitely go back.
This is the final rate, including any fees from the host and Airbnb.
