The building is a 3-story town house designed by the owner, an architect, as her permanent residence. It is located in a “colony” –a pretty little village within the city- close to the new financial and commercial center of Madrid, where the four Madrilenian skyscrapers have been recently built, and at a walking distance from the famous Santiago Bernabeu Stadium, house of the Real Madrid Football Club. We are also located at a few minutes by car from the airport and from the Chamartin train station, and also connected to them by Subway.

We know Madrid very well, so we will be glad to guide you among the big offer of entertainment, with recommendations on what to choose and how to arrive.
In the Madrid Community and very close by you will find important museums; theatre and dance performances; ballrooms; restaurants of all kinds; beautiful nature; wonders in architectural monuments and a lot more.
I love to know people and make new friends. You should check my references.
Last, but not least, I must tell you that I have a Steinway grand piano and an adorable little female Havanese dog. You’ll love her and she will love you.

Interaction with Guests
I try to make their journey easy and happy by helping in the knowledgw of the city and its attractions, listening to their needs and trying to give an answer to their requirements.
My neighborhood is a small village in the middle of a big city: Madrid. Each town house has its patio and its garden. The streets are narow and flanked with trees. My neighbors, under the influence of the country-like structure, act as if they were villagers: they are very close and familiar. When you live the place, you immediately get into the big, never-sleeping city.
As soon as you live the área, you will find all the excellent transportation net of Madrid. As close to the ancient center as a half an hour trip. Buses and Subways are often renewed and clean. Both perfectliy air conditionned and frecuent.
Other Things to Note
We are at a hundred meters distance from the Parque de Berlín, where you can run, walk, sit and read a book or have a drink under the trees, at the park´s bar and restaurant. In the center of the park there is a fountain containing three pieces of the former Berlin wall, given by the city of Berlin to the city of Madrid. There is also a monument to Beethoven. At a walking distance of the house sits the National Auditorium, house of the Philarmonic Orchestra of Madrid.
My hosts have always been affectionate, respectful, discrete, interesting, exquisite. I hope that this situation will never change.

About the Host, Irma
Soy arquitecta de profesión y de vocación, aunque mis amores comprenden una amplia gama de otras actividades. Por orden de importancia: Practico asiduamente el ballet clásico, el tango, el piano y la escritura. En plan pasivo: el cine, la lectura, las obras de arte, los conciertos y los espectáculos de teatro y de danza.
Como anfitriona, me tengo por una muy buena y atenta y como huésped, procuro ser discreta y respetuosa de las costumbres y hábitos de quien me hospeda.
Hasta ahora siempre he viajado sola o acompañada por algun amigo o amiga. Mis viajes son en general culturales cuando no son de trabajo. A menudo viajo sola (con mi perrita) en mi coche para encontrarme con la naturaleza y respirar el aire puro de la montaña, comer en algún sitito típico y pasear por los pueblos cercanos a Madrid, que son maravillosos.
Si debo de hablar de libros que me gustan, aún siendo muchos, mencionaré "La montaña mágica" de Thomas Mann. Ahora estoy leyendo las memorias de Marguerite Yourcenar.
Puede interesaros que, además del Español, que es mi lengua madre, hablo Inglés, francés e italiano y me gusta expresarme en esos idiomas.
Tengo una preciosa perrita Bichón Habanero (Havanese) muy obediente y cariñosa.
En el interior de la casa no se ha de fumar. Puede utilizarse el patio o el jardín para esos menesteres, aunque prefiero albergar no fumadores.
Llevo ya un tiempo hospedando personas a través de Airbnb y no lo lamento, todo lo contrario. Ha sido una gran suerte el descubrirlos y utilizar sus servicios. He conocido tantas persona interesantes por este medio que no termino de creérmelo, pero así es. No tienen más que echar un vistazo a las evaluaciones para ver qué personas maravillosas he hospedado y cuánta suerte he tenido.
