Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Choose Brian & Juan's apartment and you won't regret it! The apartment is very nice and cozy, and my hosts have provided perfect Bed and Breakfast service! As soon as I arrived, Brian let me fill in a form for breakfast preference and gave me a Madrid guide and map. I was able to do my laundry and take hot comfortable shower in my private bathroom. Before I left, Brain even helped me print out my flight boarding pass. Both Brian and Juan are very easy-going and interesting, and I enjoyed having conversations with them a lot. Oh, did I forget to mention their dog "Tail"? He was one of the most energetic creatures I've ever seen and he would surely make you feel at home instantly :) Lovely neighborhood, with all sorts of stores, and two blocks away from Retiro park and metro station. I'm sure you'll enjoy your stay with Brain and Juan!

  • Nos quedamos en el apartamento de Brian y Juan cinco días. Realmente disfrutamos de nuestra estancia y la recomendamos!

    Tanto Brian como Juan fueron muy amables y atentos, nos ofrecieron consejo sobre la ciudad, el transporte, etc. Tanto nuestra habitación como el resto del piso son muy acogedores y limpios. Con la ventaja añadida de que la habitación tiene baño en suite.

    El desayuno fue excelente: buenísimo y variado y cada día algo diferente! En nuestra opinión, un hotel no habría estado mejor.

    En resumen, fue una estancia genial que recomendamos 100%


    Brian and Juan were our hosts for five days. We certainly enjoyed our stay and we highly recommend it!

    They were both very kind and attentive. Giving us tips about the city, the transportation, etc.
    The room (well, the flat itself) is cozy and very clean and the bathroom en suite was very convenient!

    Brian really made an effort to offer us a nice and different breakfast everyday! We loved it! On our opinion, a hotel wouldn't be better at all.

    Great stay. Great hosts. 100% recommended.

  • He was great! Super friendly and laid-back. Breakfast was good and the room and bathroom were very clean. It is in a great location, close to Parque de el Retiro and there are many restaurants close by.

  • This was my first time using airbnb, I normally stay in hotels. I loved it! Brian and Juan made it lovable. My list of positive things to say about the hostes and their home is long... I really felt like home. The room is just as the picture shows, specious, clean and comfortable so its the private bathroom. Brian went out of his way to accommodated my needs of a no sugar no carbs breakfast, I missed the famous pastry he normally offers but I got amazing strawberries, ham, cheese and the delicious coffee. Juan kindly helped me with luggages and called a cab for me on my way out. They are just lovely people, the experience was to me way better than a 5 star hotel. One thing I would like to mentioned is the feeling of safety, when we stay in hotels there is no one really there for us, my feeling with Brian and Juan was like I had friends in Madrid, I knew that if anything happened while I was out and about I could call them and get help. So there is really nothing to think... if you are looking for a place in Madrid you found it... besides its a step from metro, two from the most amazing park and 3 from the local tour bus... I know I will be back to Madrid many times and I hope they will be offering their home... ah and I must say, Tail is adorable, he danced for me everyday. Thanks Brian and Juan for your lovely hospitality, I miss you already!

  • The apartment is close to the metro ( just 3 mins on foot ) , and you can get daily necessities at the carrefour express where it is just 30 seconds walking distance from the house.

    The En-Suit room is very clean and beautiful, especilly if you tend to need more privacy. Brian's family is so nice that they recommended me some good hotspots for visiting, and the doggy called tail always gave me such a warm welcome when I came home. It was so sweat! Thanks a lot! Brian.

  • I booked Brian's place for my mother, age 70, so she would have a place to stay while she was visiting Madrid for a week... and I'm just speechless as to how great her experience was. She was looked after amazingly well, the place was great, with plenty of room and privacy, and there was always someone there ready to help.

    I can't possibly recommend these guys enough; incredibly warm and happy people, a genius dog, great area and perfect accommodation.

    Thank for everything!!!

  • Brian and Juan provide a true Bed and Breakfast experience. You will not be disappointed with your stay. From the warm welcome to the attention to detail, the comfy bed and the extra little touches here and there that make your stay that much better. Wouldn't stay anywhere else when visiting Madrid.
