I'm sorry to say that because of a family emergency I was not able to stay at Sergio's apartment. However, my nephew was able to go to Madrid. Sergio's apartment has two bedrooms and two baths. I was told by my nephew, a very observant mechanical engineer, that the apartment was really quite spectacular, that he didn't need earplugs to sleep (as one so often does in European cities) and that everything about the apartment was as he expected it would be.
My experience as far as exchange of e-mails with Sergio was very pleasant. Sergio answered any of my questions almost immediately -- and my nephew, who also communicated by e-mail with Sergio -- said that any questions that he had were immediately answered.
Should I go to Madrid in the future, I'd certainly consider attempting to stay at Sergio's apartment.
We originally rented Sergio's two bedroom apartment for one month (our reservation was made about three months in advance). He cancelled our reservation a few weeks before our arrival - with no explanation. To make up for it, he offered us his own apartment in the same building but on the fourth floor. It is a gorgeous place and recently renovated. He has very good taste. Overall we liked it very much, but were disappointed by the original cancellation because we had to give up the extra bedroom. That meant telling our friends who were going to spend a weekend with us that there was no room for them. We also missed a few of the amenities described such as a DVD player, toaster oven, coffee machine, and the American phone number. He told us that the bed was a queen, but it was definitely a full. We had a Spanish friend look at it, and also said it was smaller than a queen. The windows are well insulated but there is still some noise from the interior patios. This is apartment living so be forewarned that it is not always quiet, especially on the weekends and if you want to open the windows. The building's doorman is very friendly. We felt very safe in the building and neighborhood. It has excellent public transportation nearby. In addition to the metro, I highly recommend the bus, especially to go to Atocha (number 26). I think these apartments would be a great choice for short term stays.
The appartment is very well positioned close to Lista metro and within easy reach of good local shops and markets. It is very stylish and has everything that you can need. We had a good time. The details say that it is not on the street side. We did not realise that this meant it is on an interior wing of the appartment block so there are appartments very close on either side. We did find the noise from other people quite disturbing particularly the crying baby and the dog! We never met Sergio as we were let into the flat by his friend Daniela and had no contact during the week.
My wife and I stayed at Sergio's apartment for 5 nights in late April right at the start of our Spanish holiday. Sergio provided great instructions to easliy get there from the airport by Metro and had set up easy access to the flat with the building porter who was waiting for us. In the first coouple of days we had a few questions for Sergio and he was very responsive and helpful.
The aprtment is so nicely decorated it looks like someone just moved out and left plenty of space for the tenants, and it is nice and homey with a good big screen TV and all the amenities you need. It is also a very quiet apartment, which helped to get over our jetlag, and the bed is super confortable.
The other thing we really liked were that it was in a non-touristy area, so the location gave us more of a truly Madrid experience with small shops bars etc. but still very easy to access the attractions of Madrid by foot or Metro. There is a Mercado just down the street, and be sure to try the Jamon Iberico de Bellota. Super! Also Sergio recommended some restaurants close by. One is El Estay which we loved. Check it out. Great food , great wine and nice people. We highly recommend this apartment!
Couldn't have asked for better accommodations or a friendlier host. I needed a short-term apartment while hunting for a permanent residence in Madrid and I only wish I couldn't have kept this place. Arguably one of the best locations in Madrid, surrounded by great restaurants, coffee shops, farmers markets, shopping and nightlife. Cozy and impeccably decorated apartment with everything you could ask for.
This was our first time using airbnb, and our first time in Madrid. We were meeting our son, who had been studying abroad, and wanted accommodations that were large enough for the three of us to be comfortable for a week. Sergio's apartment was perfect. It was beautifully decorated and spotlessly clean. There were two bedrooms and two bathrooms, a comfortable leather sofa and chaise, a dining table and a modern kitchen with a washing machine. My son could wash his clothes, and we relaxed with a DVD from Sergio's collection. It was nice to shop at the excellent market nearby, and eat breakfast at the apartment before starting out for the day. The apartment is well located near 2 metro stops, but we walked everywhere. The apartment is in Salamanca, a safe upscale neighborhood with top designer stores, if you're into that. There are also small grocery stores, patisseries, restaurants and lots of local character. Sergio is a very nice, easygoing person. He lives upstairs and is very responsive to any concerns, and is extremely helpful in answering questions and giving suggestions. I'd give this experience 10 stars if I could.
