The Space

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 apartment:
The apartment sleeping up to 4 people is furnished in a simply and cozy way. It has a bedroom with double bed and a living room with sofa bed for two. One bathroom and fully equipped (website hidden) has wifi internet. And there are parkings for the car in the same Street.

Additional Costs: 40€ (to be paid at the check-in) for cleaning and professional laundry, ensuring complete hygiene of the apartment.

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”.

Overall Guest Satisfaction
Check In
  • The apartment is really well located, right in the heart of the bohemian district but at the same time it is on a quiet street and faces inwards so you don't hear the noise from the streets.

    The apartment has everything you need - good kitchen utensils, good wardrobes, good wifi, fan etc. I did not meet Maria but she was always very helpful and quick to respond.

    I would definitely stay here again.

  • Very nice location and very nice house, with all that's necessary to live comfortably. We didn't have the chance to meet Maria in person, but she's been extremly helpful when we were reserving, and arranged with some people to help us when we arrived. We also had some troubles with the kitchen facilities bit she managed to solve everything within few hours. The house is centrally located, 2 minutes to the metro and 5 minutes walking to the gran via. Malasana is an extremly intersting neighborhood, full of life and gardens and bars.Definitely recommandable.

  • El apartamento está muy bien situado en una calle tranquila y muy céntrica, cerca de bares, restaurantes y tiendas. Está a 5 minutos de la Gran Vía y de la Plaza de España, muy cerca de varias estaciones de metro que te permiten llegar en poco tiempo a cualquier lugar de Madrid. El apartamento está muy bien acondicionado, es bastante cálido en invierno y lo suficientemente amplio para una estancia cómoda. La casera fue muy atenta con nosotros y dispuesta a solucionar cualquier imprevisto en cualquier momento.
