The Space

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)
Full American Breakfast (pancakes, eggs, sausages, bacon, etc. ) available upon request for an additional charge

Use of the washing machine and dryer 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.

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Wonderful experience! Brian's very spacious, bright, and relaxing apartment is perfectly located within walking distance of all the touristy places and in a neighborhood where you can shop and party like a local. The apartment has EVERYTHING you could want and a whole lot more (juicer, blender, wifi, working AC, relaxing spaces, ....). Very clean, quiet and comfortable. Brian is the perfect host- funny, smart, most entertaining! You get your own spacious bathroom with fluffy towels and the linens are really nice. I can't think of a single flaw. I can only hope to be welcomed back if I am ever in Madrid again!

  • I think it has been said before, but Brian sets the standard for all AirBnB hosts to live up to. Private room with own ensuite, beautifully decorated room with extremely comfortable bed including top quality bed linen, and amazing breakfast were the highlights. Brian is friendly and helpful and very professional and his dog Teo is a dancing delight.

  • Brian is a friendly, interesting and very helpful host. We felt we had a friend in Madrid and the laundry and computer use were really appreciated. The room and ensuite bathroom are clean and comfortable. Ibiza is an excellent location. Tree lined with many good eating places, we felt safe and comfortable. We walked to Retiro park and Museo del Prado etc.

  • Brian was a very gracious host. We especially enjoyed his breakfast which gave us a great start to each day. Brian provided us what we needed. We needed a fan to get alittle bit more air in the room and he provided it. Both Brian and his partner Juan were helpful in suggesting places to go and see in Madrid. We enjoyed our conversations with Brian about Spain and his interesting past and future prospects.

  • Brian is a fantastic host. He was extremely organized and very professional. The room was very neat and an array of your needs were provided for. And, he was very very chill, relaxed and kind; he showed me how to get around Madrid and even made me breakfast. The location is also great as it is close one of the main tourist destinations and very close to the Atocha train station, and 3 other Metro stations. Stay with Brian if you can!!!

  • The well-maintained apartment is in a tony neighborhood, with convenient access to places key for a tourist. Services are experly provided and needs anticipated well in advance. Room and bathroom are very clean and comfortably laid out. Hosts are friendly. My daughters were very pleased with the choice and recommend the place to others.

  • La habitación es genial, súper bien ubicada. A pocas cuadras del Parque del retiro y la estación de metro. También esta muy bien conectada con lineas de autobús q te llevan a lugares céntricos muy fácilmente. Ademas, hay variedad de restaurantes a un paso. La cama es muy cómoda, el baño muy amplio y con buena presión de agua. El desayuno estuvo excelente. Sano, variado y muy completo!!
    Los anfitriones muy amables y atentos. Muchas gracias chicos, sin duda volveremos a vernos!!!

  • 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 (email hidden) 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!
