This is a design apartment recently reformed. It's like a charming hotel suite. It is on the second floor of a “corrala” patio, which is the typical construction of old Madrid, where there is still life in the neighborhood.
The windows with different orientation provides lots of natural light. To have the ideal temperature, there is a air-conditioner unit with heat pump heat in the linving room, and radiators in the room and bathroom.
The living room has been left with the brick wall and original wood columns in sight. While resting, from the bed you can see a photomural that affords a spectacular view from the terrace of the "Círculo de Bellas Artes", Calle Alcalá, Cibeles Square, Retiro park, ... thanks to the generosity of a friend who makes amazing photos.

The apartment is great, and Jose is a fantastic host. I cannot recommend more highly!
This was our first experience at Airbnb and was really good. The apartment location is great and is very comfortable for two persons. José was really nice and we definitely recommend this apartment for your stay in Madrid.
We have just returned from a long weekend staying in Jose's apartment. We could not have chosen a better apartment, the location is perfect and the apartment has a typical Spanish feel but with a modern comfortable design. Jose was very welcoming and was pleased to arrange to meet us whenever we arrived. We will definitely be back and will of course stay with Jose.
Excelente trato y excelente apartamento. Perfecto y bien comunicado y rodeado de múltiples lugares interesantes. Parece mentira estar en el centro de Madrid con tanto silencio. Muy recomendable
A clean, modern apartment.
Convenient to the Metro.
Our host, Jose, made an effort to give us recommendations for local tapas bar and restaurants.
El piso de Josè esta genial: bien ubicado, bien equipado, luminoso y muy acogedor.
Una casita muy cuca perfecta para una pareja!
José is extremely kind and helpful. He took all my luggages and brougth them at the appartment which is cosy and perfect for 2. we had a wonderful stay, the subway is just close to José's place and we can easily have a walk around or to the city centre. José was always available for all request.
The apartment is very nice and modern, perfect for two persons. It is very calm and close to the metro station, with direct access to many intersting places to visit. Supermarkets are also very near. José is very well organized and helpful. We had a very nice time in Madrid.
The apartment is located in 1-2 blocks away from a couple metro stations.
José let us in before the official check-in time so we could walk around without worrying about the luggage.
He responded to my questions (via email) promptly even while I was staying there.
It was a bit cold at night even with the heaters on.
There was an incident of a cold shower during our stay. We heard after-effect that they store only so much hot water per night (or something like that). It should be enough for 2 quick showers, though.
I lived at José's place for a month (from the mid of November to the mid of December). The apartment is cosy, well-furnished and features new household appliances. The is convenient as the apartment is close to 4 different metro lines and it takes only 10-15 min to get to the city center.
José is very friendly and hospitable, so it was nice to meet him and live at that apartment.
