This cozy flat is in a renovated centenial building. It has an excellent location in a multicultural neighborhood of Madrid´s historic town centre. Surrounded by a variety of ethnic restaurants, tapas bars, theatres, it´s also very close to many of Madrid highlights.

  • Gabriel's place is fantastic! The neighbourhood is very colourful and close to everything, an excellent place to explore Madrid. there is a supermarket just round the corner as well as heaps of good restaurants cafe etc. the apartment itself is a great place to relax after a long day walking through the city. It's very comfortable and very interesting with the loft bedroom and spiral staircase - might be a bit tricky if you are super tall though. Gabriel was a really friendly host who came by on our last day to say hello and even let us have a later check out as therehttps://www.airbnb.com/rooms/313655 was no other guests that day. The sheets towels etc were all clean and the apartment was spotless. Would definitely stay here again. It is the best place we have stayed on our trip so far!

  • Very happy with our stay at Gabriel's apartment. Central location (about a 10 minute walk to the central plaza of Madrid); we walked everywhere. We didn't see any other tourists in the area so it was a great "local" experience. As two couples - and all good friends - we were comfortable in the small space, beware the whole apartment is open-plan so there isn't a lot of privacy. Very clean and has everything you need. Gabriel was quick in communicating and even sent us some recommendations for our stay. Very happy overall, would stay again!

  • First of all Gabriel was very nice and welcoming! Always was giving us information of the city before we even arrived and also again gave us information once we met him. He was very punctual when meeting him and gave us an extensive tour of the flat. I felt at all times that he was wanting us to make sure we knew what to do in the city and places to visit. BTW you I totally recommend using his tips of places to visit plus of the restaurants of the neighborhood they were just Delicious.
    In reference to the flat was very nice and spacious for 2 of us. All very nice decorated and clean. Centrally located and very close walking distance to all the attractions of the city center. Comfy bed, all necessity stuff for staying in the apartment and great wifi connection. I recommend this place not only for the nice apartment but for the service provided by the host.
    If we ever go back we will definitely to back there!

  • El piso nos resultó decepcionante. Las fotos son sumamente engañosas, así como los numerosos comentarios elogiosos. En realidad se trata de un lugar oscuro, frio y no muy limpio (las sábanas olían raro). Además estaban de obras justo en el apartamento de al lado y todo estaba polvoriento, algo que nadie nos comunicó. El baño es minúsculo, no hay percha para colgar los abrigos, no hay lámparas de noche. Al final el precio fue el de un buen hotel pero sin tener ninguna comodidad. No vuelvo allí.

    Response from Gabriel:

    Lamento Alicia que el piso te haya parecido oscuro, frio y no muy limpio. Supongo que a partir de esta impresión tuya es que dices que los numerosos comentarios elogios son engañosos. Te recuerdo que, como la tuya, todas la opiniones son libres y veraces... Y son 111 a 1.
    Verás que cada una de mis fotos tiene un sello que dice "verified photo". Ese es el certificado que coloca la pagina a las imágenes que han sido fotografiadas y verificadas por profesionales de Airbnb. Eso da la seguridad de que son reales y es lo mejor que te puede pasar cuando estas buscando a través de Airbnb para tener la seguridad de que la foto coincide con el espacio que alquilarás. Quizá Airbnb no sea la página ideal para tí.
    Cuando reservaste, 14 días antes de tu llegada, aún no habían comenzado las obras en el piso vecino. Aparentemente, comenzaron un par de días antes de tu check in y yo mismo acabo de enterarme. Lo siento, son contingencias que escapan a mi control.
    Me alegro que por el mismo precio de un buen hotel hayas podido disfrutar del uso de una lavadora, de cocinar, prepararte un café a cualquier hora de la noche, de disponer de un dormitorio y también de un salón con su sector de comida y de estar, poder ver la tv de 32" desde un sillon, una biblioteca con algunos libros en distintos idiomas, dvds para ver pelis, etc. Todo un apartamento de dos plantas para tí por el precio de una habitación de hotel.
    Espero que esta impresión "decepcionante" no haya estado influenciada por tu enojo al tener que pagar por un huesped extra. Yo traté de explicartelo de todas la maneras posible pero bastaba con mirar tu confirmación de reserva. Erais dos personas en el piso pero tu papel decía "1".No entiendo porque te niegas a aceptar que el error fue tuyo.
    Por último quisiera aclarar que no soy infalible pero me gusta entregar bien limpio mi piso, y que la sábanas siempre se entregan lavadas (a mí me huele raro cuando dices que olían raro)... Por cierto, no es necesario que me agradezcas el set de cama extra que te entregué. Lo hice como gentileza.

  • We are very glad Gabriel hosted us this spontaneously. Everything worked out just perfect. Even the description of how to get to the house from the airport was as precise as it can be, Gabriel is a very caring host. Thanks a lot.

  • Prima esperienza con AirBnb. Confortevole il piccolo studio di Gabriel, che si trova in uno stabile molto silenzioso nel quartiere multietnico di Lavapies. Il letto è confortevole, il bagno è piccolino. Puntualità e disponibilità da parte di Gabriel. Grazie!

  • Gabriel's home was cozy. I was only in Madrid for two nights and it felt like I lived there after settling in. So glad there was a washer, the apartment has everything you need to even cook while you're there. The neighborhood is near the metro, yet it's also so close to everything I just walked everywhere. Two thumbs up!
