Malasaña apartment is located in a building of mid-twentieth century, a few minutes from the Metro Stop Noviciado or Metro stop Tribunal and a few steps from the Gran Via, one of the main streets of Madrid.
It is a small apartment, bright, very quiet and cozy, and especially very well placed to stay a few days in Madrid as a tourist or on business, due to its central location and very good communication with public transport. Located in the heart of the bohemian and alternative neighborhood of Malasaña, and next to the neighborhoods of Chueca (Madrid's Soho called) across the Street Fuencarral and neighborhood Conde Duque crossing the street San Bernardo.

Description of the neighborhood:
In Malasaña neighborhood there are plenty of bars, cafes and nightclubs. The neighborhood is slowly becoming pedestrian and a very nice place. In the charming little squares like “San Ildefonso”, “the square of Juan Pujol”, that of “Dos de Mayo”, or the “Plaza de las Comendadoras” and the “Glorieta de Guardias de Corps” in the neighborhood of Conde Duque one can take a coffee or a bier while seeing different style people, from alternative intellectual as well as pure people of the neighborhood.... There are also a number of interesting restaurants in the area.
PEZ STREET AND ESPIRITU SANTO STREET are also areas with attractive neighborhood environment where one can find good bars, restaurants, cofee places, shops and theater ALFIL.
FUENCARRAL STREET is lined with fashion shops of a young style and modern, there are young designer shops and shops of all major brands: Diesel, Puma, Adidas, Hoss ... etc. One stop on this street that deserves a visit is the Museum of City History (78 Fuencarral. Metro: Tribunal):
The History Museum of the City is one of the finest examples of late Spanish Baroque. It was built in 1726 as Hospice of San Fernando, its wonderful facade in 1726, is the work of Pedro de Ribera. The museum illustrates the arts, industry and daily life of the locals since it was named capital in 1561 until today: includes 60,000 pieces, including paintings, sculptures, prints, porcelain, coins and postcards.
The Malasaña neighborhood gets its name from the seamstress Manuela Malasaña. She was one of the heroine of one of the historical events that have occurred in this neighborhood: In 1808, Madrid was occupied by Napoleon's troops and the May 2, the people of Madrid rose against the invader, the revolt was quelled and hence the shootings of May 3rd - the famous painting by Goya. Manuela Malasaña was a young seamstress who was arrested and shot for wearing a pair of scissors, which the French considered a weapon.
The other "revolution" happened in Malasaña was LA MOVIDA: In the 80's, a youth important movement emerged in Madrid as he led the great social, moral and aesthetic changes that occurred with the fall of the Franco regime and Malasaña was the center of La Movida. Pedro Almodovar is a good example of the spirit of the movement, a movement transgressive, hedonistic and a touch-ironic kitsch reflected in his early films as "Pepi, Luci, Bom and Other Girls Like." La Movida use slogans like "Madrid Kills me" or "From Madrid to Heaven" that reflect the vitality and destructiveness of the moment.
Crossing the street of San Bernardo we arrive to the area called the Conde Duque, a neighborhood much like the neighborhood of Malasaña, which is next, although slightly quieter and more select. It gets its name from the impressive headquarters of Conde Duque, a giant barracks built in 1720 that housed 600 soldiers and 400 horses. It was built by Pedro de Ribera, royal architect of Felipe V, and has 3 stunning courtyards, both its size and its austere elegance that contrasts with the richly ornate Baroque beautiful porch. It now houses a cultural center of the city council
In a Word: this apartment is a perfect starting point to visit so many and interesting things , just walking everywhere or by metro or bus and experience first hand “la movida madrileña”.

Je n'ai pas rencontré Maria, mais j'ai réussi a avoir les clés très facilement! L'appartement était conforme à la description mais très sombre!
Quartier très sympa :)
La salle de bain n'était pas propre ( moisissure dans la douche), la pompe de douche était cassée, et peu d'eau chaude! Dommage....
Nos alojamos en la casa de maria en malasaña. Tuvimos algún problema con la limpieza y con los el numero de juegos de toallas y de sábanas por haber reservado tarde. Nos lo solucionaron lo antes posible y al final realmente fue muy buena la experiencia. Excelente zona y el piso es bonito
Great location in the heart of Malasaña. Cosy little flat - everything worked well(wifi, bathroom etc). I was worried bed might be a bit small for 2 of us. It is a bit small, but absolutely fine. Right round the corner from a couple of supermarkets and some good bars and restaurants too.
La descripción y las fotos encajaban con la realidad, por lo que estamos bastante satisfechos con la casa. La zona de Tribunal, que es donde se encontraba el apartamento, es una de mis favoritas de Madrid por el animado ambiente y la disponibilidad de transportes.
Por otro lado, María fue muy comprensible y atenta con nosotros, por lo que no guardamos más que un buen recuerdo.
Céntrico apartamento, limpio y confortable.
El barrio muy animado pero no ruidoso.
I just stayed in this flat for 39 nights. First, the location of the flat is wonderful. Malasaña is filled with cafes, bars, restaurants, and shops. You can walk all throughout this area or you can walk about 7 minutes and be on busy vibrant Grand Via. There are small markets and groceries very close by! I really appreciated the fact that this flat had a lift, which made it easy with heavy luggage. I also appreciated the excellent WiFi. It was fast and reliable. The kitchen is well equipped to cook simple meals. The only thing I would have wished for was a toaster. But there is a refrigerator, sink, microwave, stove and oven which all worked great! There is also a washing machine in the kitchen. This was good, but the cycles are so LONG. I couldn't not figure out how to wash something for less than 2 hours. Also, the washing machine leaked a bit. There was always water on the floor after a cycle. There is no dryer so you have to hang dry your clothes (common in Spain!). There is a very nice laundromat a short walk away if you want to do quick wash and dry. For the most part, the apartment was quiet. It's very cozy and warm. I was there in October and November when it was chilly outside, but I was never cold in the apartment. A few of the lightbulbs were out in the apartment...one in the bathroom and one in the kitchen. Hopefully they will fix this before the next tenant. Also, sometimes the toilet would not flush. I remedied this by filling a bucket with water and dumping it into the toilet. Finally, as one other review mentioned, the shower does not drain very effectively, so you must shower quick so water doesn't overflow onto the floor of the bathroom. When I first arrived at the apartment, it was clean and presentable. The bed was comfortable enough for me. Also, the futon turns into a very comfortable bed for sleeping. There are a few quirks, but overall I would recommend this apartment!
Esperienza perfetta, l'appartamento è un'amore, silenzioso, pulito e confortevole. Situato in una zona tranquilla e con tanti servizi proprio nella via. Maria è una bella persona, disponibile e precisa nelle sue indicazioni. Raccomando vivamente questo appartamento. Se ricapiterà di tornare a Madrid, torneró sicuramente da Maria. :)
