About This Listing
I've been an AirBnb host for over 3 years and every guest has left a FIVE STAR REVIEW.
The room has a private bath, private telephone line and BREAKFAST is INCLUDED
Room with double bed and private bathroom (with individual air conditioning - a must have in Madrid!) Of course, there is free WiFi and breakfast included!
From March to October the boulevard in front of the flat is filled with tables for outdoor dining at the many restaurants that line the street.
The neighborhood is one of the nicest areas of Madrid - just meters from El Retiro Park and walking distance to all major museums (El Prado, Reina Sofia and Thyssen), shopping districts, the city center and nightlife. There is a direct bus to the airport just four blocks from the house.
Continental Breakfast included in price (home made pastries, meats, cheeses, juice,tea or coffee)
Use of the washing machine is permitted.
500 meters (yards) from Retiro Park
400 meters from Ibiza metro station.
3 km (1.8 miles) from Sol (the very center of Madrid.)
Excellent place to stay in a comfortable environment.
Especially nice for GLBT people looking for a friendly place to stay with hosts who know the city.
Guests can have access to the refrigerator and limited use of the kitchen to prepare meals - provided that they coordinate the use with us first
Interaction with Guests
I live in and work from the apartment - so I will be interacting with the guests on a regular basis
Other Things to Note
For your convenience I have added a private guest phone for your use while staying at the flat.
Incoming calls are free and you can make outgoing calls for a small charge.
Your friends, family and associates can reach you by dialing local Spain and US numbers that I will send after you book the room
We have one small dog in the house - who is very friendly and mostly keeps to himself.
Smoking is NOT permitted in the house.
I will need to make a photocopy of the passport or European Union identity card of all the guests who are staying in the flat before they are given keys.
From Jul 8 - 10, 2015 the minimum stay is 1 night.
Brian is a superb host, he made my first Airbnb experience unforgettable.
His online responses were fast, efficient and always helpful. We followed up all his recommendations (in regards restaurants, jazz clubs, places to visit) and we were always impressed and happy with his suggestions.
The apartment is very well located, easy transfer to and from the airport (15 minutes by the express bus & €5), a short walk to the beautiful Parque del Retiro and just a few metro stops away from the centre.
Beautifully decorated, clean and inviting.
Our trip in Madrid was brilliant.
Thank you Brian!
Brian es un anfitrión excelente y de trato muy fácil. Está pendiente de que te sientas bien. La habitación está muy bien y limpia. Me he sentido muy cómoda las 4 noches en las que he estado en su casa.
Volveria sin ningún problema. Todo estupendo.
Brian, Eugenio y Teo, Muchas Gracias!!!
El barrio es fabuloso y el piso más aun! Es un piso precioso, muy limpio y ordenado. Estupenda relación calidad-precio.
Brian es un anfitrión estupendo que nos sugirió algunos sitios para comer y beber; además de prepararnos un delicioso y saludable desayuno todas las mañanas. Nos volveríamos a hospedar ahí sin dudarlo! Gracias Brian!
No puedo más que corroborar los comentarios de los otros huéspedes: Brian una persona abierta, extrovertida y muy amable. Fotos reales, habitación y baño individual limpios, cama comodísima. El desayuno estupendo. Todo un lujo en una buena zona de Madrid, a pocos minutos a pie del parque El Retiro. Teo, el perro, un sol. Muy simpático. Sólo le falta hablar.
Gracias por hacer fácil y cómoda la estancia.
Brian is a great host and we loved the neighborhood location, close to Parque del Retiro with easy access to the metro. The room is quiet and clean and breakfast is delicious. Brian has thought of everything you might need and provided it for you. Wonderful stay.
Brian is a great host and a lot of fun to chat with regarding things to do and NOT do in the Madrid area. The room was clean, organize, and had all the aminities that were listed on the ad. I definitly will recommend others to stay at his flat. Again, thanks for the awesome breakfast and accomodations, a perfect 10 out of 10!!!
Brian was very kind and straight forward and his attention to detail concerning the use of the place was helpful and welcomed. The room was very clean and private. He kindly provided access to the fridge and his coffee and breakfast was excellent. The neighbourhood was convenient and fun, everything in walking distance.
